The sort-of sequel to Knocked Up is almost here, as This is 40 hits theaters next month, just in time for families to get together around Christmas. Like all Judd Apatow comedies, it runs a little longer at 2 hours and 13 minutes, but the filmmaker does put a lot of heart and genuine detail into his stories. For those just joining us, Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann are reprising their roles from Knocked Up as the latter is turning 40 and having a bit of a mid-life crisis. Now a new poster shows the mundane married life at 40 with Rudd watching TV, Mann reading, and the kids jumping wildly. It's better than normal romantic comedy posters.
Here's the new poster for Judd Apatow's This is 40 straight from Universal Pictures:
This Is 40 is by writer-director Judd Apatow (40 Year Old Virgin, Knocked Up, Funny People) and is sort of an unofficial sequel to Knocked Up, following the characters Pete (Paul Rudd) and Debbie (Leslie Mann) from the 2007 comedy as they deal with aging and the trials and tribulations of having a family in this day and age. Jason Segel also reprises his role from Knocked Up while new cast members include Megan Fox, Albert Brooks, John Lithgow, Chris O'Dowd, Melissa McCarthy, Lena Dunham and Apatow's kids Maude and Iris. Universal is bringing This Is 40 to theaters December 21st this year, in time for Christmas. Fun?
