Trailer Debut: This Is 40
All our fortieth birthdays have come at once! The trailer for Judd Apatow‘s Knocked Up spin-off This Is 40 has debuted online.
Apatow turns his attention to Knocked Up co-stars Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann, who reprise their roles as embittered married couple Pete and Debbie, now dealing with reaching the big four-oh. Judd and Leslie’s real-life kids Maude and Iris return as Pete and Debbie’s daughters.
Though Seth Rogen and Katherine Heigl won’t appear as accidental parents Ben and Alison, Jason Segel pops up as the creepy buddy with a crush on Deb.
We also get to see recent additions to the Apatow roster join in on the fun: Melissa McCarthy, Lena Dunham, Chris O’Dowd, Megan Fox, and composer Jon Brion (the Oscar campaign starts here!).
Check out the trailer and share your thoughts below!
This Is 40 has a tentative Australian release date of February 7, 2013.
