Must Watch: Judd Apatow's Funny People Trailer
Universal has debuted a very long, very funny, and very touching trailer for Judd Apatow's Funny People. This is Judd Apatow's third feature film and it looks pretty incredible, I'd say, and I'm already going to say that it's one of my most anticipated summer releases based off of this trailer. Not only does it have a very wonderful side of humanity that you rarely see captured in trailers, but I laughed louder than I have at any other actual comedy this year. I really think Judd Apatow has another gem just waiting to hit theaters. I just wonder if this is his pinnacle, his masterpiece, or if he'll still go on to directing something even better?

Over the past few years, writer/director Judd Apatow has shown that nothing—not even losing your virginity or the miracle of childbirth—is sacred. About his third film behind the camera, he says, "I'm trying to make a very serious movie that is twice as funny as my other movies. Wish me luck!" When seasoned comedian George Simmons learns of his terminal, inoperable health condition, his desire to form a genuine friendship cause him to take a relatively green performer under his wing as his opening act.
Funny People is both written and directed by comedy mastermind Judd Apatow, of 40 Year Old Virgin and Knocked Up, as well as "Freaks and Geeks", previously. The story in the film is inspired by Apatow's own real life experiences. Universal is debuting Funny People in theaters on July 31st this summer!
