500 Days of Summer Teaser Trailer

Just barely after the world premiere of 500 Days of Summer at Sundance last night, our friends at Fox Searchlight have debuted a teaser trailer for the film. Before I even talk about this trailer, I saw this film just a few hours ago at its world premiere at Sundance and I loved it. It was wonderful, in every way, and is going to be a huge hit. Although this trailer does give you a good feel for the film, the voiceover with the guy saying "500 Days of Summer" over and over is a bit annoying. Ignore that part and sit back and enjoy, because when July comes around, this will definitely be the talk of the town.

Watch the teaser trailer for 500 Days of Summer:

500 Days of Summer is directed by up-and-coming filmmaker Marc Webb, of only a few music videos previously. The screenplay was co-written by first-time writers Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber. This just premiered at the Sundance Film Festival this week to a standing ovation. Fox Searchlight will be bringing 500 Days of Summer to theaters everywhere on July 24th this upcoming summer.

That Zooey Deschanel is hot 🙂 Sounds like a nice movie, even if i hate the narrator in that trailer... :/

Fantastic - this looks very refreshing indeed! Michael H Weber rocks

this looks like a timeless, classic, romantic movie. what's the name of the song?

the more I see Joseph Gordon Levitt, the more I see Heath Ledger both in looks and career-wise.

The really need a new voice over script. That alone almost makes me not want to see it.

Oh my God I want to see that SO BADLY.

4: you just proved that i'm not delusional! i agree 100%, he does resemble heath soooo much! and I agree with everyone thus far, despite creepy, annoying voiceover guy, this looks amazing! can't wait till it hits theaters!

Yeah this looks really good, Deschanel and Gordon-Levitt are two of my favorite actors, and not just random flavor of the months like Dane Cook and Jessica Alba. I can really see this being big. And I also agree with the creepy voiceover guy but since Don LaFontaine died I think they are having a tough time replacing him.

You guys are scooping everyone at Sundance. Really great coverage. You just officially became my no. 1 film site.

Jason on Jan 18, 2009

I miss Don LaFontaine!

I love it already.

Nick Sears on Jan 18, 2009

What's the name of that song?!

Nick Sears on Jan 18, 2009

13

Went and found the song. The Temper Trap - Sweet Disposition Good stuff.

Trin on Jan 18, 2009

Ha, yeah, just found it too, beat me to the post

Nick Sears on Jan 18, 2009

I agree with number 5. That voice over was ridiculously annoying. It reminded me of the trailer for Eli Roth's Thanksgiving. Don't get me wrong. I loved that trailer. Just the way it kept saying 500 days of summer reminded me of the other trailer saying Thanksgiving over and over and over.

That VO guy should never do another trailer, ever.

SmartGuy on Jan 18, 2009

17

whats this movie called again?

eutychus on Jan 18, 2009

I actually really hated the trailer but I do like Levitt and Deschanel and that alone interests me. Along with you saying how good it is I'm sure I'll make it out to see this one.

janet on Jan 18, 2009

19

The narrator reminded me of the Grindhouse films.. I was expecting to see someone get chopped in half and zoey to start shaking her boobies... It would have been a much better trailer

richard on Jan 18, 2009

As much as I hate to agree with EVERYONE, that voice over guy is fuckin annoying. Like, REALLY annoying.

Clamson on Jan 18, 2009

21

after reading this site for quite some time now, this is the first one ive commented on.... i dont even care about the voiceover guy, im just too busy watching the screen, this looks SO DAMN GOOD.

Brian on Jan 18, 2009

22

@12 Thanks.

sumonesumtime on Jan 18, 2009

Agreed with #19 -- if this movie holds as much promise as it seems to, what a disservice to it and everyone that worked on it, to have that crap voice-over script. I'd be interested to see how that movie looked without his voice in it at all, and no mention of the movie's title on-screen until the very end.

dRailer on Jan 18, 2009

24

I'd watch anything with Zooey in it. I even watched 'The Happening', although it was a freebie. I think it's fair to say the VO was a poor choice.

Bob on Jan 18, 2009

25

Can't stop watching this trailer. Zooey's so damn adorable. This trailer has that hypnotic attraction similar to that of Garden State's trailer. The music and visuals compliment each other so well - it hooks you right in.

Nick Sears on Jan 18, 2009

26

no offense but Zooey has a face you just want to punch.

teyhtr on Jan 18, 2009

27

Yeah sorry #25 she has the total opposite effect on most people.

Itri on Jan 18, 2009

28

I absolutely LOVE the voice over guy. It gives a very nostalgic feel of how trailers used to be from the 40s up to the 70s that you find on the dvd bonus features of old movies nowadays.

George on Jan 18, 2009

29

For a movie that Firstshowing.net really liked, that trailer looked awful!

KyB on Jan 18, 2009

30

looks good, anyway i gotta ask this, you guys saw the trailer for 12 rounds on ign. the action looks good but the downside is that john cena is in it. i'm dead serious.

Drake on Jan 18, 2009

31

Joseph gives me a boner!! Its gonna be hard to watch G.I. Joe and not fantasize about humping Cobra Commander now.

D Link on Jan 18, 2009

32

the movie looks amazing!!!! zooey is sooo cute! but the voice-over guy is irritating, it is as if he is narrating the news or something

F.C. on Jan 18, 2009

33

its like a old school movie trailer

Darren on Jan 18, 2009

34

This looks banjos! Will defo watch it.

Crapola on Jan 18, 2009

35

Could he say that one more time, please? I didn't catch the title, thar'.

Manda on Jan 18, 2009

36

I love how the voice-over guy says '500 days' so many times and then at the end goes '...(coming soon)' Can't stop laughing!

Mubariz on Jan 18, 2009

37

haha of course they make her sing.. this looks great I LOVE Zooey and can NOT wait for this.

-Peter- on Jan 18, 2009

38

This looks great just from the chemistry that you can tell these two up and coming actors have for each other. Just looking into their eyes tells me more about the film than that voice over because you can see the passion in their expressions (which I think was the point).

peloquin on Jan 18, 2009

lol! The VO guy sounds like a bad Morgan Freeman impersonator 😀

LW on Jan 18, 2009

A bus full of Zooey? Sold.

Fuelbot on Jan 18, 2009

JULY 24 IS RIDICULOUSLY FAR AWAY. Why wasn't I at this world premiere. 🙁

DK on Jan 18, 2009

42

Georgiana on Jan 18, 2009

43

Someone stole Morgan Freeman's voice 😀

Morgan Freeman on Jan 18, 2009

44

I'll see anything with zooey deschanel. any any any thing.

Ryan on Jan 18, 2009

45

That's not Zooey Deschanel, that's Lizzy Caplan, aka Katy Perry.

MBD on Jan 18, 2009

46

this looks really good! I love both of them.

s on Jan 18, 2009

chris on Jan 18, 2009

thomas on Jan 19, 2009

I love the trailer except for the voice over guy. Can someone tell me the title of the song. I love that song

Jose on Jan 19, 2009

51

Wow. That narrator is horrible. I hope they fix that before a wide release of the trailer. The movies looks great, though.

kiko on Jan 19, 2009

52

Everyone thinks the narration is horrible but think back to the old days, that was what the trailers consisted of, and not saying the film doesn't look modern but some of their outfits do seem to be dated. I for one enjoyed the narration and felt it was an enjoyable throwback to the old days of cinema.

Movieraider321 on Jan 20, 2009

53

Gosh, nice to be in the company of some people that know a little film history...that voice over and trailer was very 60's-70's and fit perfectly!

kitano0 on Jan 20, 2009

54

Seriously, Sometimes it's better to wait and put out a quality trailer then this trash. Love Zoey, though. She is great in anything. I recommend her last album as well. Amazing voice.

Mikey9a on Jan 21, 2009

55

I'm game for this movie. great visuals.

dave13 on Jan 21, 2009

i'm fell in love with Zooey Deschanel after watching her with Jim Carrey Yes Man..._can't wait to see her again in this movie..!

Khairul Aiman on Jan 22, 2009

57

I agree with the first comment, I don't like the Narrator, but this would be the perfect movie to take your loved to.

Scott on Jan 22, 2009

58

GOOD NEWS. I found a way to enjoy this well-edited trailer WITHOUT the god-awful voiceover! Turn off the sound on the trailer and press pause. Go to the band's myspace page. Cue up "Sweet Disposition" in time with the trailer. Press "play." you're welcome.

e.r.m. on Jan 23, 2009

59

Can anyone please send me a link to find the soundtrack to 500 days of summer? I cannot find the songs that were playing in the movie anywhere. I just want to have a list of the artists and song titles. my email is dcbills1986@aol.com. Please Please respond to this post or just send me an email. Thanks!

Dallin on Jan 24, 2009

I'm SO glad this is coming out after I come back to the states...it looks really really good and adorable. I'm excited. And yeah that song is really awesome too.

Stacia on Jan 27, 2009

61

So if Joseph Gordon Levitt is the new Heath Ledger does this mean he'll die alone of an OD?

Chet on Jan 28, 2009

62

WTF Chet!!! Joseph Gordon-Levitt is the new Heath Ledger??? Last I checked, Joseph Gordon-Levitt has been around longer, than Heath Ledger.

Shawnee on Feb 2, 2009

63

I just saw the trailer for "Gigantic" on Rotten Tomatoes it seems Zooey is gonna be in a bunch of super cute/funny movies also, didn't you say you had a Sundance interview with her?

-Peter- on Feb 12, 2009

64

unsub on Jul 9, 2009
