This Is 40

We're getting down to the last couple months of the moviegoing season, and as yet there are only a small handful of movies left to be seen that are also considered Oscar contenders. But thanks to the For Your Consideration campaigns, you can have a chance to read a couple of the year end's biggest movies, before you see it.

Universal has upped their campaign page, revealing they will be pushing the obvious choices "This Is 40" and "Les Miserables," along with "The Lorax," "Snow White & The Huntsman" and "Ted." But it's first movie in that list we're concerned with at the moment, with the script for Judd Apatow's film available for your downloading and reading pleasure. Of cousre, we haven't had time to flip the pages, but if you're wondering if Pete (Paul Rudd) and Debbie (Leslie Mann) can sustain their own spinoff/side-quel thingy about the perils of turning the big four-oh, now is your chance to find out. Fun fact: the script is 146 pages, the film itself 2 hours and 14 minutes. Presuming 1 page = 1 minute of screentime (which is the general rule of thumb) that leaves about ten minutes or so of deleted scenes, right?

And for you fans of Jon Brion, you can also preview five songs from his upcoming score over at the awards page as well, which is a nice early treat for what should be hopefully be a music packed movie (a quick skim of the script reveals The Pixies' "Un Chien Andalou" and A-Ha's "Take On Me" among the songs featured).

If you get a chance to read it, let us know your throughts below. "This Is 40" blows out the candles on December 21st.
