This Is 40 has released a new teaser, focusing on reminding audiences of Paul Rudd’s character from hilarious comedy Knocked Up, Pete. And specifically, his bizarre behaviour in hotel rooms.
After recalling the magic-mushroom-fuelled monologue concerning chairs from the original movie, the new footage shows Pete resorting to his old tricks in a different hotel, having gobbled down a marijuana cookie. Take a look below:
It only makes sense that the studio would play up the Knocked Up connection in the promo material, since the title This Is 40 might not set off any bells in the mind of the average moviegoer, and the Vegas trip was a particular highlight of that movie, after all.
Directed by Judd Apatow and co-starring Jason Segel, Albert Brooks and John Lithgow, This Is 40 opens in the UK on February 14th, 2013.
