A handful of new pics from upcoming films has landed in the pages of Entertainment Weekly over the past few weeks. We've rounded up some of them here for your viewing pleasure. First up is "This Is 40," Judd Apatow's quasi-sequel to "Knocked Up," starring Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann alongside Apatow and Mann's real-life kids. Apatow has been veering more towards drama lately, and this looks like another step in that direction, with the pic centering on Mann's Debbie as she turns 40 and finds renewed energy to raise her kids right, fix the problems in her relationship and remain fit and attractive. The trailer was very promising, and the December 21st release is surely a sign of studio confidence.
Also due out this Christmas is the return of Quentin Tarantino with "Django Unchained," the slavery Western he's been talking about for years. Here we have the two leads, Christoph Waltz as German bounty hunter King Schultz and Jamie Foxx as the titular Django, who form an unlikely team on the hunt for a pair of brothers and Django's wife. Standing in their way, though, is Francophile plantation owner Calvin Candie, which promises to be a fun, villainous turn from Leonardo DiCaprio. And one more treat for your eyeballs: the trio on the cover of the French edition of Premiere magazine (via ComicBookMovie).
