Has the summer got room for one more hit, once Harry Potter is fired out of the gate next week? Here’s hoping, as Judd Apatow’s third film as director arrives in US cinemas at the end of the month (although we have to wait until the end of August for its UK bow).

It’s not as impactful as the trailer for Apatow’s last film, Knocked Up, but it’s worth sticking with until the end for the “”Are you mad that you died at the end of Die Hard?” conversation…
