    Hi there – Only one I can think of was from a long time ago… an indie called Away We Go starring John Krasinski and Maya Rudolph (but her character is pregnant already).

    Aicheyearaem, was it Friends with Kids, with Jon Hamm and Kristen Wiig? It also co-stars Megan Fox, Maya Rudolph, and Chris O’Dowd. It doesn’t have a release date yet–probably in the spring of 2012.

    (Only thing is, I’m not sure a trailer has been released yet. Maybe you saw a news story about it?)
