The upcoming Judd Apatow joint This Is 40 is the quasi sequel to his 2007 comedy Knocked Up. To help promote the film is this new red-band featurette. In it Judd Apatow and company bring us to speed on what’s happened to Pete (Paul Rudd) and Deb (Leslie Mann) in the five years since Knocked Up. Basically they’re is struggling with the fact their life, marriage and intimacy don’t exactly shine like it did in their younger years. So while this may be a bit blunt and shocking (that’s “Red Band” for ya) Apatow is just trying to tell it like it is…no candy coating in his world is there. Enjoy!
Plays a bit like an extended trailer doesn’t it? Well, along with the new footage, it looks like there’s lots of yucks to be had which make the sobering reality that we all get old go down a little easier. This is 40 stars Paul Rudd, Leslie Mann along with co-stars John Lithgow, Albert Brooks, Melissa McCarthy, Chris O’Dowd and even Jason Segel. Written and directed by Judd Apatow, This Is 40 is set for wide release this Winter on December 21st, 2012.
