After the disappointing box office returns of 2009’s “Funny People," Universal is pulling no punches in making sure that everyone knows that “This Is 40” is a (quasi) sequel to Judd Apatow’s earlier hit “Knocked Up.” To that end, here are two featurettes from the film along with another listen to a song from the soundtrack.

After the disappointing box office returns of 2009’s “Funny People," Universal is pulling no punches in making sure that everyone knows that “This Is 40” is a (quasi) sequel to Judd Apatow’s earlier hit “Knocked Up.” To that end, here are two featurettes from the film along with another listen to a song from the soundtrack.

First up is a featurette that once again highlights Megan Fox’s breasts, not that anyone is complaining. We do also get to see appearances from Jason Segel, Chris O’Dowd and Charlyne Yi as well as some of the improvisation that Apatow’s films are famous for. Next is a featurette that focuses entirely on Paul Rudd’s Pete that connects his character to 2007's "Knocked Up." Lastly, if you head over to EW, you can have a listen to Ryan Adams’ contribution to the soundtrack, "Shine Through The Dark." Unlike Fiona Apple’s contribution, Adams’ song isn’t a brand new track, it was first released as part of a charity compilation, but it’s still one that should make fans happy.

Check out the soundtrack on December 11th, and see “This Is 40” when it hits theaters on December 21st.
