Hilarious Red Band Trailer for Judd Apatow's Funny People
Universal has finally debuted a new red band trailer for Judd Apatow's Funny People that will also be showing in front of Bruno this weekend. We haven't seen another actual trailer for this comedy since the first one debuted back in February. This is not a lot of new footage in this, which is perfectly fine, because I definitely want to see the funniest moments in theaters and don't want any of this to be ruined. I've still got that feeling that this could be one of my favorite movies this year, just because it has some great humor and some emotion that I think only someone like Judd Apatow can balance. Definitely give this trailer a shot!

You can also watch the new Funny People trailer in High Definition on MySpace
When seasoned comedian George Simmons learns of his terminal health condition, his desire to form a genuine friendship causes 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 will be bringing us Funny People in theaters on July 31st this summer!

this looks excellent. The belnd of Sandler, Bana, Mann, Rogen, Hill, and Schwartzman looks for lack of a better word hysterical! Maybe this will be Sandlers oscar? Lets face it he was really deserving of an oscar in Reign over Me so maybe this is his chance!

"i've been trying to build a cabinet from you guys..." Yeah, I'll see it - I didn't really like Knocked Up that much (I think Seth Rogen's angry pissed off guy was a bit strong), but I seriously enjoyed 40 Year Old Virgin, so I'll give this a go.

I'm confused, innuendo about a ball in her mouth makes it Redband? I didn't see or hear anything else that would qualify. I liked his other films and this will probably be good but these trailers just aren't working for me.

"dont put me in a corner where i have to FUCK my way out" is a reason why its redband.not the ball in a mouth. looooks good though

Anybody tell me what Wilco song this is?
oblong on Jul 8, 2009
damn, i was gonna repeat that ikea cabinet joke.....=( too slow. but this looks funny
lego on Jul 8, 2009
@9: It's "Nothingsevergonnastandinmyway (again)" from the brilliant "Summerteeth". Go buy every Wilco Album, people! I'm really looking forward to this film. Love everything about it so far.

Man, I'm tearing up, that dentist bit at the end I actually did 'LOL', well I laughed out loud.
Crapola on Jul 8, 2009
That Captain Subtext! I probably will end up buying. Wilco is awesome!!!

eric bana makes this movie

Xerxex(#1), I must agree with you! I have been an Adam Sandler fan since way back in the Remote Control days. He did deserve to at least get the recognition of the acadamy.

Nice. Im there.

I got nothing against Judd Apatow. I think he makes some pretty good movies, but ughh I wish he'd stop putting his wife and kids in his movies.
Zerosum on Jul 8, 2009
Don't see why its a red band. Wow he said sex and fuck. That's probably the reason.
d on Jul 9, 2009
In the non-redband trailer the joke with the swedish doctor is a little different. doctor says: 'i enjoy your movies, youre a funny man.' sandler replies 'i like your movies too' 'which ones' 'the ones where you try to kill bruce willis' lol 😛 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kzciY15Q3BA
Bernhard on Jul 9, 2009
This actually looks quite good. I'm not a big fan of Apatow, or Sandler, so hopefully this will change my mind.
Marty on Jul 9, 2009
"Aren't you mad you died ad the and of Die Hard?" lol Great cast!
Robbie on Jul 9, 2009
Sandler desperately needs a hit thats for sure, the guy is slowly turning into Steve Martin with slop he's put out lately.
CHACK on Jul 9, 2009
#9 It's actually a Philly band called Dr. Dog.
Lendo on Jul 9, 2009
Lendo, really? I'll check it out.
Xerxex on Jul 9, 2009
yes, Bernhard. we know.
Tom on Jul 9, 2009
I agree with #27 (CHACK), so I'm approaching this movie with pretty low expectations.
Syphous on Jul 10, 2009
ahahahahahh!! aw man, this looks great.
lando on Jul 10, 2009
again with the deleted posts!!!!!!!!!!!!! If Rogen was not in this film, I would give it a try. He is the absolute worst!!!!! Terrible casting.
clover on Jul 11, 2009
I keep hearing so much positive hype about this movie but I can't get into it. I'm not a Rogen hater either, I like pretty much all his stuff. I just don't think it's going to be funny.

its amazing how many people know absolutely nothing about the bullshit they spout in these comments
