The poster debuted at Screen Crush today, and it's here only thanks to their good graces, so click that way if you're so inclined.
These two characters, along with their daughters played by Maude Apatow and Iris Apatow, were used very effectively in Knocked Up and audiences responded strongly, so it'll be interesting to see how their midlife struggles play as the central storyline this spin-off.
Apatow, billed on the poster as the producer of Bridesmaids (remember a year ago when nobody was sure that one was going to work?), has stacked the supporting cast with funny folks, as if to ensure that Rudd and Mann wouldn't have to shoulder the comedic burden all on their own. Knocked Up alums Jason Segel and Charlene Yi show up in the film, along with proven talents like John Lithgow, Melissa McCarthy, Chris O'Dowd, Albert Brooks, Lena Dunham, and even Megan Fox.
This Is 40 arrives on December 21st.
