Damn near the whole world loves Judd Apatow and his films, but I can’t help but grow increasingly tired of all the monotonous sex jokes and hope this one is able to bring a little something different than what we first received in the very funny The 40 Year-Old Virgin followed by the rather repetitive Knocked Up as the new trailer for Funny People, a film that takes place in the world of standup comedy and the focus is on a comedian who has a near-death experience, has just debuted online.

Along with that I have added a few additional photos as well as the poster for the film to the gallery right here.

You can check out the trailer directly below or in high definition at Moviefone. Universal will release Funny People on July 31.

Over the past few years, writer/director Judd Apatow has shown that nothing–not even losing your virginity or the miracle of childbirth–is sacred. About his third film behind the camera, he says, “I’m trying to make a very serious movie that is twice as funny as my other movies. Wish me luck!” Apatow directs Adam Sandler, Seth Rogen and Leslie Mann in Funny People, the story of a famous comedian who has a near-death experience.

Adam Sandler, Eric Bana, Jason Schwartzman, RZA and newcomer Aubrey Plaza join a cast that reunites Judd Apatow with Seth Rogen, Leslie Mann and Jonah Hill in their third comedy together.
