We were already huge fans of Leslie Mann and Judd Apatow, collectively and separately, and now we’re even bigger ones. Can we please talk about how adorable Leslie Mann and Judd Apatow are in these red carpet pics from Sundance? As World Breaking News pointed out, they’re “still smitten with each other,” and we couldn’t agree more.
ICYMI, Apatow is at the Sundance Film Festival on behalf of his new film, The Big Sick. Annnnnnd, Amazon just acquired U.S. rights for The Big Sick for $12 million. Yup. We know! A bidding war ensued after the film premiered at Sundance on January 20th, reported Forbes. The bidding was between Fox Searchlight, Netflix, Focus Features, and Amazon.
So Amazon won and acquired The Big Sick, and we should all be able to see the film when it’s released in theaters later this year. Woot-woot! Let’s hope sooner rather than later.
So now Mann and Apatow have even more reasons to celebrate. Plus, we hope they’ll take more adorable photos. Meanwhile, let’s look at pics of them at The Big Sick’s premiere at Sundance.
And the cuteness continues…
And continues still…
Okay, here’s one that’s still adorable yet more serious. But regardless — they’re giving us serious #relationshipgoals and #cutecouplegoals.
And what’s the dl with the film? ICYMI, Apatow produced The Big Sick and Michael Showalter directed it.
The premise? Written by Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon, it follows their IRL relationship. Hint: It’s a culture clash and his Pakistani parents don’t approve. The couple splits up…but then “the big sick” happens, aka his now-ex-girlfriend gets a mysterious infection and is put into a medically induced coma, reported The Verge. We all have to see it to find out what happens next!
Nanjiani stars in the film while Zoe Kazan plays his girlfriend.
Nanjiani already makes us laugh nonstop on HBO’s Silicon Valley, so we can imagine how funny he is in The Big Sick. Also, judging from Apatow’s Instagram, he’s proud of Nanjiani and Gordon.
And we can’t wait to see the film for ourselves, too. Meanwhile, we’re still hoping for more adorable pics of Leslie Mann and Judd Apatow…
