Paul Rudd And Leslie Mann Relax Among Chaos In New This Is 40 Poster
Since making his directorial debut back in 2005, Judd Apatow has really matured as a filmmaker - and you don't really have to look further than the plots of his movies to see it. His first, The 40 Year Old Virgin, was smart and clever, but also featured themes about growing up (even if the entire movie was about a group of fully grown men). He followed that with Knocked Up in 2007, which is a movie about starting to accept responsibility and become an adult. Then there was 2009's Funny People, which was not only a more dramatic turn for Apatow, but also dealt with much more mature issues about being in the middle of life and facing real issues.
And next we have This is 40. Described in advertisements as a "sort-of sequel to Knocked Up," the film seems to be about the true adult stage of life, where you have a family and a career, aren't getting any younger and have to deal with getting older. And in the latest poster for the movie that experience is put in portrait.
Universal Pictures has revealed a brand new one-sheet for the comedy, and it pretty much speaks for itself. You can see it below and be sure to click so that you can see it in its highest resolution.
Set a few years after the events of Knocked Up, the new movie - which Apatow also wrote - follows Pete (Paul Rudd) and Debbie (Leslie Mann) as they try keep a handle on their lives as they grow older. The awesome supporting cast includes many Apatow regulars and first timers, including Jason Segel, Melissa McCarthy, Chris O'Dowd, Megan Fox, John Lithgow, Albert Brooks and Maude and Iris Apatow. This is 40 comes to theaters December 21, and you can see more from it in our Blend Film Database.
