Trailer Lands for Jonathan Levine's Solid Looking 50/50
Call it a generational thing, but I stand by my assertion that The Wackness is one of the very best films of the last 10 years - and woefully under-appreciated. That story of sex, drugs, and hip-hop came from deeply personal place in the heart of writer/director Jonathan Levine and left its fans wanting more.
Finally Levine is back directing another intensely personal film, albeit this time from writer/cancer survivor Will Reiser (yes, he's Paul's cousin). 50/50 tells the story of a 20-something year old played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt as he struggles to cope with what might be a terminal diagnosis. But wait - this isn't all coffin shopping and hankie blowing. Levine and Reiser are going for more of the witty fun method of dealing with mortality. Just check out the hilarious trailer below or in HD at apple.
The film co-stars Seth Rogen, Anna Kendrick and Anjelica Huston and drops from Summit on September 30th.
