Don-Jon-PosterJoseph Gordon-Levitt took his directorial debut, Don Jon, to Sundance this April, and came away with very strong early reviews, cementing the film’s status as one of the most anticipated of the year.

With the film about to return to the festival circuit in the coming weeks, Relativity have launched a new trailer, via Yahoo Movies, teasing another 60-second look at the upcoming comedy.

Jon Martello (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is a strong, handsome, good old fashioned guy. His buddies call him Don Jon due to his ability to “pull” a different woman every weekend, but even the finest fling doesn’t compare to the bliss he finds alone in front of the computer watching pornography. Barbara Sugarman (Scarlett Johansson) is a bright, beautiful, good old fashioned girl. Raised on romantic Hollywood movies, she’s determined to find her Prince Charming and ride off into the sunset. Wrestling with good old fashioned expectations of the opposite sex, Jon and Barbara struggle against a media culture full of false fantasies to try and find true intimacy in this unexpected comedy written and directed by Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

Gordon-Levitt is joined by Scarlett Johansson in the lead, with Julianne Moore, Tony Danza, Brie Larson, and Rob Brown completing the ensemble nicely.

Gordon-Levitt is directing from his own script, and returns to work with Ram Bergman (Looper, Brick), who produces here alongside executive producer Nicolas Chartier (The Hurt Locker), with Nathan Johnson (Looper, Brick) scoring the film.

Don Jon will be heading into US cinemas on September 27th, with its UK release date set for a little later on 15th November. If, like most, you’re a fan of Gordon-Levitt’s work in front of the camera, then this is definitely one to look out for, to see how he handles the director’s chair as well.

Since graduating, I spend as much time as possible watching films/TV shows, reading books, and listening to music. So getting to write about what I love is nothing short of awesome. Biggest film-related hope for 2014/ever: Guy Ritchie announcing the RocknRolla sequel is finally moving forward.
