I may well be the only critic out there that thinks Judd Apatow is a perfect 3 for 3 as a filmmaker so far (or at least very few so heavily embrace all 3 of his directorial outings like I do), so it’s hardly a surprise that I’m highly anticipating his next film. ‘This Is 40′ is the sort-of sequel to ‘Knocked Up’ and follows the lives of Pete and Debbie (Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann) as they enter into middle age. Today we have the new Trailer for the flick, and I very much like what I see. Co-starring the likes of Albert Brooks, Chris O’Dowd, Melissa McCarthy, John Lithgow, and Megan Fox, this could be a possible Oscar contender if everything breaks right for the movie. Take a gander after the jump and see for yourself. It’s not as funny as the last Trailer, but it looks better overall and suggests a potentially strong emotional arc for the characters. Behold it below…
