While Judd Apatow has been busy on the producing side with everything from the record-setting Bridesmaids to Lena Dunham‘s divisive HBO show Girls, the comedy director is finally getting back behind the camera for the first time since Funny People. This is 40 marks a “sort-of” sequel to his 2007 hit Knocked Up, following the married couple of Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann.
While the first teaser was a bit disappointing, we’ve got a more promising look today in the form a full-length one. With a better sense at Apatow’s honest, funny approach it’s hard not be charmed by Rudd.

This is 40 hits theaters on December 21st, 2012.

In theaters now, Ivan Reitman‘s new film, Draft Day, does quite a bit with a hard subject. Part of that is the writing, but a lot of the success on screen is due to the amassing of talent Reitman manages and the flash he implants into ordinary scenes. The life of a GM during a tumultuous and pressure-packed [...]
