Looks good! I liked it 🙂

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

Traveler on May 27, 2011


Can't wait, I really like this pairing.

Chazzy on May 27, 2011


That was fantastic! I'm extremely excited about the Gordon-Levitt/Rogen pairing...I'm there for sure!

" I was wrong, I was wrong... Its wierd its not cool" xD

Ricardo Marques on May 27, 2011


That line was great.

Xerxexx on May 27, 2011


Saw some awesome quotes, hope the whole movie has a "few" more lol...

Ricardo Marques on May 27, 2011


I agree.

Xerxexx on May 27, 2011


"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.

Xerxexx on May 28, 2011


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

grimjob on May 27, 2011


I liked the Wackness too grim, this looks great! Can't wait to see these this movie!

I got cancer the same way, completely clean and then it just popped up out of nowhere

Armeetapus16 on May 27, 2011


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...

jah p on May 28, 2011


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!!!

Elyk1887 on May 28, 2011


Good luck to you, here's hoping you are cancer free.

Xerxexx on May 28, 2011


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


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


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


try "Brick."

Xerxexx on May 28, 2011


"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. 

huh on May 28, 2011


Mysterious Skin.

MorBo on May 28, 2011


I respectfully disagree about his performance in "Brick" he played a perfect noir detective.

Xerxexx on May 28, 2011


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!

Anonymous on May 27, 2011


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


I will definitely see this film!

Casey Carroll on May 28, 2011


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.

Hungt on May 29, 2011


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

Anonymous on May 29, 2011


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

Brandon on May 29, 2011


I just love Anna damn cute!

kitano0 on May 29, 2011


Does anybody know what type of cancer he gets?
