Set to hit theaters in just under a month, Judd Apatow’s latest effort, “This Is 40,” is already screening for industry types, and the studio is kicking their marketing into high gear to compete in the crowded weekend before Christmas. Though it seems like we’ve seen a lot of footage already, the studio has only just released the first official clip from the sort-of sequel to “Knocked Up.”

While Seth Rogen and Katherine Heigl won't be back for Judd Apatow's "Knocked Up" spin-off "This Is 40," one person who was revealed to be returning as far back as the summer of 2011 was Jason Segel. And once again, he's back and still obsessed with Leslie Mann.

Already screening to critic types and with DVDs already in the hands of voters, Universal is getting the word out for Judd Apatow's "This Is 40." They're leaving no marketing stone unturned (not even Megan Fox's breasts), and now a new international trailer has arrived with just a bit more footage to make it worth your while.

Now showing for critics, and with screeners already in the hands of various guilds and groups, Judd Apatow's "This Is 40" is officially out of the gate, and the early buzz seems to be positive. But there's still about a month to go until it hits theaters, and Universal is beginning to turn on the marketing juice for the picture.

It's already been revealed that the soundtrack for Judd Apatow's "This is 40" -- his sort-of-sequel to "Knocked Up" -- will feature another choice selections of cuts, including songs by Yoko Ono, Paul McCartney, Avett Brothers, Loudon Wainwright and more. But even more appealing is the fact that there are four artists who contributed new songs to the film's soundtrack, including Fiona Apple, Norah Jones, Graham Parker (who cameos in the film), and Lindsey Buckingham; all produced by the film's composer Jon Brion (Wilco and Ryan Adams also contribute new/live versions of previously known songs). It's a bit of a Dad-rock mix, but hell, it fits the material, and these kind of song selections served the tone for "Knocked Up" and Apatow's previous film "Funny People" extremely well.

A midlife crisis never sounded this good. For his upcoming sidequel/spinoff "This Is 40," Judd Apatow reached out to some pretty big names to write some new tunes for his movie, with more than a few song titles hinting at a rocky emotional ride for Pete (Paul Rudd) and Debbie (Leslie Mann).

In case you're living under a rock, you likely know that Judd Apatow's latest dramedy, "This is 40," is a type of spin-off or follow-up to his 2007 comedy, "Knocked Up." To recap: Ben (Seth Rogen) and Alison (Katherine Heigl) are the leads of "Knocked Up" and "This Is 40" centers on two of the supporting characters of that film, Pete (Paul Rudd) and Debbie (Leslie Mann) -- Debbie being Alison's older sister in the film. Got that?

A few musical cues and news today, so let's jump right in. Brit pop star Jessie J has recorded a new song for "Silver Linings Playbook," which takes the usually bland approach of literalizing the characters and themes of a film to a whole new level. Grammy Award-winning songwriter Diane Warren (nominated for six Oscars including Aerosmith's "Don't Want To Miss A Thing" from "Armageddon") has penned "Crazy About You." A movie about two people going through some personal pain that has affected their mental health -- and who fall for each other -- featuring a song called "Crazy About You"? Genius.

Though at 35 years old, Fiona Apple has yet to grapple with turning the big four zero, she has certainly channeled her fair share of pain through her songs. And undoubtedly some of that will come through in her contribution to the soundtrack of Judd Apatow's upcoming "This Is 40."
