It's Judd Apatow like we've never seen him before! We can't be the only ones who associate this comedy creative legend with awkward rom-coms that leave us cringing and laughing hysterically at the same time. But he's strapping on some new boots and tackling the action-comedy cross-over in a big way. So let's dive in and see what's in store for us with this upcoming release!

The Emmy Award-winning director, producer, and screenwriter's next project is titled The Bubble. The R-rated comedy is set to tell the story of "a group of actors and actresses stuck inside a pandemic bubble at a hotel," as they attempt to complete a film. And for lovers of Tropic Thunder's similar plot concept (a movie about a movie), this will be right up your alley. Plus, what better to forget our Corona worries than to laugh along with pandemic-themed comedy? And if the plot synopsis alone doesn't get you excited, then maybe the star-packed cast list will. Because in typical Apatow fashion, he's brought in some heavy-hitting comedy names to bring his vision to life.

From Pedro Pascal (known for his roles in Game of Thrones and Narcos) to MADtv legend Keegan-Michael Key, the acting power in this film has certainly contributed to the massive hype building around the April 1st release on Netflix. Plus, these A-listers are joined by the likes of Fred Armisen, David Duchovny, and many more. And what would a Judd Apatow production be without a little help from his family? So we can look forward to seeing Leslie Mann and Iris in the raunchy apocalyptic comedy as well. Intrigued? You can get a taste of what's to come by checking out the trailer that Netflix dropped earlier this week below.

From quirky personalities to out-of-this-world situations, The Bubble will be sure to give us some much-needed distraction from the world around us - just as all good comedies should! In the meantime, be sure to check back for more updates on big releases coming your way!
