I like this. I like the intro, too: "Find out if I survived..." 🙂

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

@ Ricardo, indeed. I have a feeling there will be a lot of memorable one liners.

I loved The Wackness, and I'm definitely looking forward to this!

Are you better now?

Xerxexx on May 27, 2011

Thankfully yes

I had a colonoscopy, got a polyp removed just in time, it was pre-cancerous! Glad you made it out okay Armeetapus...

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!!!

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.

Quanah on May 27, 2011

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!

Day on May 28, 2011

22

I'm with you. Love Pacino and Deniro...Just enjoying JGL much more now-a-days.

Quanah on May 28, 2011

i find him to be quite boring. he has a very unexpressive face and voice 

huh on May 28, 2011

24

I would recommend watching him in Hesher. I actually didn't enjoy that movie, but he's anything but boring in it.

Quanah on May 28, 2011

25

try "Brick."

Xerxexx on May 28, 2011

26

"The Lookout" wasn't bad either.

JL on May 28, 2011

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.

Mysterious Skin.

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!

Seth Rogen....     If it was Seth Green I wouldn't see it no matter what lol.

Chazzy on May 28, 2011

When does Levitt film all these movies?? lol

Duck on May 27, 2011

Looks good, looks great actually, I'll totally see this.

Crapola on May 27, 2011

Alex, didnt he act the same exact way in 500 days of Summer? 

VS on May 28, 2011

35

I will definitely see this film!

Casey Carroll on May 28, 2011

36

looks promising

yekim on May 28, 2011

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..

Davide Coppola on May 28, 2011

well..he lives, so....

kenji on May 28, 2011

Spoiler, but yes.. I thought the movie was still very melancholic..

Davide Coppola on May 28, 2011

I can't stand Joseph Gordon-Levitt.  He is a horrible and overacted actor.

I got all excited by the opening music. Menomena is a great band.

Anna Kendrick is busy. This doesn't look like anything I'd want to see. 

Brandon on May 29, 2011

I just love Anna Kendrick...so damn cute!
