  |  @   |  

This Is 40
Directed by Judd Apatow
Written by Judd Apatow
Starring: Paul Rudd, Leslie Mann, John Lithgow, Megan Fox, Albert Brooks
Universal Pictures
Rated R | 134 minutes
Release Date: December 21st, 2012

In Judd Apatow‘s latest film, This Is 40, the writer/director revisits characters he created in 2007’s Knocked Up and examines the foibles of marriage.

Pete (Paul Rudd) and Debbie (Leslie Mann) are a married couple in their 40s with children (Mann’s real-life daughters, Maude and Iris Apatow) under pressure, both economic and emotional.

This sort-of sequel to Knocked Up is Apatow’s first directorial effort since 2009’s Funny People. The filmmaker has been busy producing films like Get Him to the Greek, Bridesmaids, and The Five-Year Engagement – movies that fulfill the director’s artistic mission to blend requisite adult humor and layers of emotional depth all while exploring immaturity and characters who are forced to accept the curveballs life throws at them.

‘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.
