Universal Pictures have sent over the brand new trailer for Funny People, the third film from director Judd Apatow following The 40-Year-Old Virgin and Knocked Up. Starring Adam Sandler (Bedtime Stories), Seth Rogen (Observe and Report) and Apatow's wife Leslie Mann (17 Again), the film opens in cinemas on August 28.
Sandler stars as stand-up comedian George Simmons who, upon discovering he has a life-threatening illness, realises that he has very few friends. Desperate to form a real human connection with someone, he takes newcomer Ira (Rogen) under his wing to teach him the ropes of the comedy circuit.
Funny People, which has been written by Apatow, also stars Eric Bana, Jonah Hill, Jason Schwartzman and Sarah Silverman.
