There’s no doubt that I was in the minority in praising Judd Apatow’s last film ‘Funny People’ as his best yet, but I know I’m not in the minority of loving his two previous flicks ‘The 40 Year Old Virgin’ and ‘Knocked Up’. Today we bring you the first trailer for his newest directorial work ‘This is 40′, and it looks like a cross between ‘Knocked Up’ (which is a pseudo sequel to) and ‘Funny People’ in all of the best ways. I think this could be the most mature work of Apatow’s career and could get him the sort of respect as a filmmaker that’s somewhat eluded him to date. You can see the trailer after the jump, but it appears like this is one to really get excited for this Christmas. Take a gander below…
