Check out a new, shorter trailer for Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s romantic comedy “Don Jon”. Okay, so it’s probably not a romantic comedy, but it’s definitely a comedy, and from the looks of it, it doesn’t take itself all that seriously. Gordon-Levitt wrote, directed, and stars in the movie, which is pretty impressive. What’s even more impressive? It’s not some depressing faux art house film that is going to make you run home and slit your own wrists, which is usually what you get when actors start directing. Now THAT’s impressive.
Also, take a gander at a new poster for the film below as well.
Jon Martello (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is a strong, handsome, good old fashioned guy. His buddies call him Don Jon due to his ability to “pull” a different woman every weekend, but even the finest fling doesn’t compare to the bliss he finds alone in front of the computer watching pornography. Barbara Sugarman (Scarlett Johansson) is a bright, beautiful, good old fashioned girl. Raised on romantic Hollywood movies, she’s determined to find her Prince Charming and ride off into the sunset. Wrestling with good old fashioned expectations of the opposite sex, Jon and Barbara struggle against a media culture full of false fantasies to try and find true intimacy in this unexpected comedy written and directed by Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
Starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Scarlett Johansson, Julianne Moore, Tony Danza, Brie Larson, and Glenne Headly.
Don Jon goes to the movies this September 27th.
