Trailer Blazer: 'Knocked Up'

Posted on


Knockedup_lLooks like somebody’s going for a two-peat. Universal has just released the one-sheet poster for Judd Apatow’s summer comedy Knocked Up, and it looks strikingly similar to the poster for the director’s 2005 smash The 40-Year-Old Virgin. This time, however, it’s Apatow protégé Seth Rogen’s burly, bemused mug staring back at us, instead of Steve Carell’s shiny one. A quasi-companion film, Knocked Up stars Rogen as a man who impregnates the lovely Katherine Heigl (pictured, with Rogen) during a one-night stand. Virgin veterans Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann also join in the fun, as do TV funnymen B.J. Novak and Jason Segel.

Though the jury’s still out on if the adorable Rogen, a veteran of Apatow’s gone-too-soon TV series Freaks and Geeks, can be a leading man, he’s getting ample support. Thanks to small roles in Anchorman and Virgin, he’s recognizable to Frat Pack fans, and production has also wrapped on his first screenplay, this August’s Super Bad. Plus, if this NSFW teaser trailer is any indication, good things like ahead for young (hi, he’s only 24!) Rogen. What the heck is a dental dam, anyway?
