Laugh In The Face Of Cancer With The ’50/50' Trailer

About time that somebody knocked that lousy disease down a peg or two. [post-album postid="30794" item="1"] Please stick around after the awkward introduction to watch the trailer for 50/50. Based on the true story of cancer survivor Will Reiser and directed by Jonathan Levine (The Wackness), the film looks pretty well done. Joseph Gordon-Levitt slaps on a cardigan to play Adam (based on Reiser), the cancer-stricken 27-year old who must learn to live with the disease. Seth Rogen addresses Reiser at the top of the trailer as one of his "best friends." But then he goes and co-stars as the goofy best friend. Is he imitating himself? Could be. Though at first I thought he was imitating the character Dan Fogler always plays.

Chicks Don't Dig Cancer In '50/50' Trailer

It's like hot chick kryptonite. [post-album postid="224275" item="1"]This morning we have a new trailer for Will Reiser's autobiographical 50/50 that focuses more on the comedic and less on the film's bummerific aspects. This shorter look leans more heavily on Seth Rogen to make light of Joseph Gordon-Levitt's cancer like any good friend would. Though as evidenced here, using cancer to pick up chicks isn't as foolproof as it sounds. It's cancer. Not a puppy. 50/50 opens in theaters on September 30th and also stars Anna Kendrick, Bryce Dallas Howard, Phillip Baker Hall, and Angelica Houston.


Joseph Gordon-Levitt Looks Like Billy Zane In New 'Looper' Trailer

Seriously, though. This guy's face? Rian Johnson's latest film is a high concept science fiction action film starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt as an assassin who murders marks from the future. Until one day, the man (played by Bruce Willis) beamed back to him for disposal turns out to be his older self. This new trailer reveals more of the plot as well as the loggerheads that the present and future individuals find themselves at. It also reveals more of what the Bruce Willification of Gordon-Levitt's face looks like. It's. Just. Plain. Weird. I'd never thought that the offspring of those two would look like some kind of Billy Zane monster. Then again, this is a work of science fiction.


Joseph Gordon-Levitt Plays A Self-Serious Delivery Boy In 'Premium Rush' Trailer

New York's most attractive bike messengers take on New York's most corrupt cops. We've seen thrillers where characters are trapped in phone booths and on cellular phones. Now, it's come to this -- a thriller that happens almost entirely on a bicycle. Joseph Gordon-Levitt races through the streets of New York as a bike messenger trying to avoid crooked cops in Premium Rush. Written and directed by David Koepp, it looks like a fun take on action movies. Boardwalk Empire's Michael Shannon also stars along with Dania Ramirez, Jamie Chung, and Aasif Mandvi. You might remember that Mandvi also played that pizza guy who fired Peter Parker from his delivery job in the beginning of Spider-Man 2. Good to see he's still working dispatch. Nobody knows the city like that guy.


George Clooney Imitates Tim Allen’s Neighbor In ‘The Descendants’ Trailer

Poor George. His daughters are impervious to his charms. George Clooney has played many varied roles throughout his career. He's played political figures, a fisherman, a fast-talking prison escapee, a nippled superhero, a frequent flyer, and he's fought off the attacks of killer tomatoes. Now he's headed into new territory under the tutelage of Alexander Payne: Stressed out dad. In The Descendants, Clooney's stuck actually having to raise his daughters after his wife goes and messes her shit up in a boating accident. Not cool, wife. Don't you know a guy like Clooney needs to be out there planning his next steps in his on-going prank war against Brad Pitt? If he lets his guard down for one minute, he's likely find his Bugatti Veyron parked beneath power lines in an area highly-trafficked by pigeons.


‘Midnight In Paris’ Trailer: Now It’s Owen Wilson’s Turn To Imitate Woody Allen

It was either him or Vince Vaughn. Woody Allen has done it again. The trailer for his latest, Midnight In Paris, has debuted and this may be his most ludicrous plot yet. In the film, Owen Wilson and Rachel McAdams play a young, engaged couple spending time in Paris. Wilson's character develops a fondness for wandering alone around the City Of Lights. He then finds that he prefers to do that over spending time with Rachel McAdams. See what I mean? That's less believable than Sleeper.

The comedian is teaming up with Amazon's game streaming service Twitch for a crowd-funding campaign on Indiegogo with hopes of raising $375,000 for Cancer for College and Even though he totally owns that much money and could probably just give it to them.

What A Charming Disaster Film: 'Seeking A Friend For The End Of The World' Trailer

Most importantly, Gillian Jacobs makes out with Keira Knightley. What would you do if you knew that the world was going to end? Race to fulfill all of your hedonistic desires?

Seeking a Friend for the End of the World explores all of these questions as all of society's up-and-coming comedic actors go totally batty with the news that an asteroid is going to kill us all.

The two make a pact to help one another reunite with loved ones before the major impact event, but find the time to road trip across a crazy brains version of America in the meantime. It's a fun premise that looks charming. You know except for everyone dying horribly.
