This is 40 is a kind of sequel to Judd Apatow’s Knocked Up. It focuses on the second couple in that film, Debbie and Pete, and the crisis that they come to when they are turning 40 and life is not as exciting as it used to be. The cast members include Paul Rudd, Leslie Mann, Megan Fox, John Lithgow, Iris Apatow, Maude Apatow, Melissa McCarthy, Robert Smigel, Charlene Yi, Albert Brooks, and Jason Segel. This trailer provides some more laughs in addition to what has already been seen in the first trailer. This is 40 still looks like a solid comedy from Judd Apatow.
“Writer/director/producer Judd Apatow (The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Funny People) brings audiences This Is 40, an original comedy that expands upon the story of Pete (Paul Rudd) and Debbie (Leslie Mann) from the blockbuster hit Knocked Up as we see firsthand how they are dealing with their current state of life.”
This Is 40 is in theatres December 21, 2012.
