Luckily, it looks like the new Red Band trailer just released on Empire will help those of you out there like me who just are not completely sold on the romantic comedy. It's nothing I can put my finger on, but I think most audiences will be sold on the "Apatow Brand" more than anything else.
Marshall stars Jason Segel (How I Met Your Mother) as Peter Bretter; a lovelorn guy who has just been dumped by his newly-successful girlfriend (as played by TV's Kristen Bell). When advised to take a vacation by his friends, he runs into his ex and her new rock-star boyfriend. Mila Kunis (That 70's Show) also co-stars as the fun-loving girl who helps Peter over his heartache. Along with the first-timer's, some of the usual Apaptow crew are there including Seth Rogen, Paul Rudd, and Bill Heder.
Erik had brought us the first trailer back in December, and the new red band version contains a lot of the same jokes. So while it doesn't include much new footage, at least this time they don't have to worry about those pesky FCC rules and they can show you the jokes in their entirety -- and believe me when I tell you that they are way funnier when they don't have to worry about offending people in the prime-time hour. Forgetting Sarah Marshall (with all the crudeness intact) will arrive in theaters on April 18, 2008.
