‘This Is 40’ Trailer: Apatow’s Heartfelt Look At Family Life

There’s a new trailer for the upcoming Judd Apatow comedy This is 40. The film is the sort of sequel to Knocked Up and will follow the characters Pete and Debbie (Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann, respectively) as they enter their 40s. Check out the trailer below.
The new trailer doesn’t pack a comedic punch the way the first trailer did. Instead it pushes for the drama aspect of the film as it tries to convey the difficulties most parents and married couples experience when they are approaching their 40s. Trying to balance out a life with kids, a money grubbing father (Albert Brooks), and rekindling a relationship can’t be easy. So I am anxious to see how Apatow is able to balance out the drama with comedy in the film. Plus I just wanted to see more of Pete and Debbie, as they were my favorite characters in Knocked Up.
The film will feature some familiar faces like Jason Segel and Charlene Yi, as well as some new ones like Megan Fox, Chris O’Dowd, Lena Dunham, Ryan Le, Robert Smigel, Wyatt Russell, and Melissa McCarthy. Universal Pictures plans to release This Is 40 on December 21st this holiday season. So are you in?
