  • Chazzy
    Can't wait, I really like this pairing.

        • Xerxexx
          I agree.

            "I don't smoke, I don't drink...I recycle" that's the best one for me ūüėõ

            @ Ricardo, indeed. I have a feeling there will be a lot of memorable one liners.
  • grimjob
    I loved The Wackness, and I'm definitely looking forward to this!
    • jah p
      I liked the Wackness too grim, this looks great! Can't wait to see these this movie!
  • Armeetapus16
    I got cancer the same way, completely clean and then it just popped up out of nowhere
    • Xerxexx
      Are you better now?
      • Armeetapus16
        Thankfully yes
        • Xerxexx
        • John C.
          But do you want to watch the movie?
    • jah p
      I had a colonoscopy, got a polyp removed just in time, it was pre-cancerous! Glad you made it out okay Armeetapus...
    • Elyk1887
      I go in on June 9th for a biopsy to see if I have cancer. I think this movie means I do hahaha. But that aside I am extremely excited for this movie. Anything with JGL is gold!!!
      • Xerxexx
        Good luck to you, here's hoping you are cancer free.
  • Joseph Gordon-Levitt is an incredible actor. He doesn't have to scream and yell like Pacino or be stone cold calm like Dinero. He's somewhere in the middle, and it's brilliant. This movie looks like a great role for him. I'll see this for sure.
    • Day
      I was about to say the same thing. Not that I don't like Pacino or Deniro. I respect different acting styles, from reason I like his the best out of any actor today!
      • I'm with you. Love Pacino and Deniro...Just enjoying JGL much more now-a-days.
    • huh
      i find him to be quite boring. he has a very unexpressive face and voice 
      • I would recommend watching him in Hesher. I actually didn't enjoy that movie, but he's anything but boring in it.
      • Xerxexx
        try "Brick."
      • JL
        "The Lookout" wasn't bad either.
      • huh
        I'm going to see Hesher tomorrow. Saw Brick and Lookout...decent movies. He was mediocre in them. However that didnt distract from the story of the films. 
        • MorBo
          Mysterious Skin.
        • Xerxexx
          I respectfully disagree about his performance in "Brick" he played a perfect noir detective.

    Holy God that looks good...cannot wait for this. JoGo is the man and he plays surprisingly well, from the look of it, off Seth Green (of all people). Thanks for posting Alex...Oh, and welcome back from Cannes!
    • Chazzy
      Seth Rogen....     If it was Seth Green I wouldn't see it no matter what lol.
  • Duck
    When does Levitt film all these movies?? lol
  • Looks good, looks great actually, I'll totally see this.
  • VS
    Alex, didnt he act the same exact way in 500 days of Summer? 
  • I will definitely see this film!
  • yekim
    looks promising
  • Hmm.. the trailer tries to sell this as a dramedy, but if it's gonna be anything like The Wackness then it will be really depressing. I think we'll get another Funny People here..
    • kenji
      well..he lives, so....
      • Spoiler, but yes.. I thought the movie was still very melancholic..
  • Hungt
    I can't stand Joseph Gordon-Levitt.  He is a horrible and overacted actor.
  • Anonymous
    I got all excited by the opening music. Menomena is a great band. 
  • Brandon
    Anna Kendrick is busy. This doesn't look like anything I'd want to see. 
  • kitano0
    I just love Anna damn cute!
  • Abelansky
    Does anybody know what type of cancer he gets?
