Judd Apatow Explores ‘This is 40’ [VIDEO]
Producer extraordinaire Judd Apatow returns to the director/writer chair with the highly anticipated, This is 40 trailer that was released today. The film is being billed as a “sort-of-sequel” to Apatow’s most successful feature to date, 2007’s Knocked Up, starring Katherine Heigl and Seth Rogen. This is 40, follows Debbie and Pete (Leslie Mann and Paul Rudd) who were Katherine Heigl’s sister and brother-in-law, in Knocked Up.

"It's about getting older. What the hell happened? Am I making all the right choices? Is this where I'm supposed to be? Is this it? All of those dreams that you had when you were young, all of the possibilities, when you lock into marriage and kids, do the possibilities dwindle or go away," Mann (who incidentally is married to Apatow) in said in a Los Angeles Times interview earlier this year.

Judging by the trailer, Apatow seems to exploring both the joys and perils that come with middle age, with perhaps a decidedly autobiographical direction. Not only is he wed to Mann, but the daughters in This is 40 are the couples offspring in real life.

The film opens December 21, with appearances by Apatow mainstays Jason Segel, Melissa McCarthy and others. Below is the trailer for your viewing pleasure.
