Family (And Megan Fox) Comes Front In Center In New Batch Of 'This Is 40' Images Starring Paul Rudd & Leslie Mann

The messiness of family and all its glory is front and center in Judd Apatows upcoming dramedy, “This Is 40.” The “sort-of sequel” to 2007’s “Knocked Up,” this more grown-up comedy expands on the family in the film played by Paul Rudd, Leslie Mann and the kids Maude and Iris Apatow. ”People really responded to Pete and Debbie, and I thought it would be fun to see where they are now,” Apatow told EW recently. ”I come from television, so I want there to be 80 episodes of everything.”

In the film, Peter and Debbie are both hitting the big 4-0 and their eldest daughter Said (played by Maude Apatow) is smack dab in her teenage angst years. School pressures, financial problems and marital discord start to set in and the parental figures attempt the goal of some family “self-improvement” rules to very mixed results.

Suffice to say, family is center stage in the movie and so is the latest crop of photos, which features the entire cast including Megan Fox, Jason Segel, Melissa McCarthy, Chris O’Dowd, Albert Brooks, Lena Dunham, John Lithgow, Charlyne Yi and many more.

”I’ve covered college, marriage, having a baby, turning 40, and fatal diseases — there’s almost nothing left at this point. I’m going to have to switch to science fiction,’ Apatow joked to the magazine. That would be a sight to see wouldn’t it? Until then “This Is 40” hits theaters in wide release on December 21.
