Giving fans even more to laugh at, Universal Pictures released a new Red Band featurette for “This is 40” on Monday (November 19).

In the clip, director Judd Apatow and his cast discuss the “Knocked Up” spinoff and explain the story behind the sure-to-be hilarious comedy.

“I thought it would be interesting to do a movie about a 40-year-old couple,” Apatow said. “They’re trying to make everything better, and the more they try the more things fall apart. And then I realized it should just be Pete and Debbie from ‘Knocked Up.’”

Leslie Mann, star of the film, explained her character Debbie’s journey, saying, “They really love each other but are struggling with having that kind of closeness.”

“Life just feels different. Being married with a family,” added Paul Rudd, who plays Pete. “It’s better in some ways and worse in others.”
