Judd Apatow’s latest comedy, Funny People, got a pleasant weekend at the Box Office and raked home around $23 million, which brought it straight to the top.
The reviews of the movie have been predominant positive as well. At Rotten Tomatoes, the movie has received 66% positive reviews, and over at IMDB the average from merely 3,500 users is a bit over 7, even so I suspect that this number will decrease, as more users will cast their vote.
In Funny People Apatow tells a much more mature story, compared with his previously breezily movies, about the successful standup comedian, George (Adam Sandler) that learns that he suffers from a rare blood disorder and has less than a year to live and how that is affecting his life.
The newly released international poster, at IMP Awards, below shows all the lead actors, instead of just Adam Sandler, Seth Rogen and Leslie Mann that the previous one showed. In addition, I find it much more attractive as well, compared with the old one, or what do you think?
