Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Seth Rogen deal with cancer in the new 50/50 trailer
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
Finally a trailer for the upcoming cancer comedy 50/50 has come out and it looks pretty decent. Joseph Gordon-Levitt (INCEPTION) plays Adam, a 27-year-old who finds out he has cancer and struggles to beat the disease and come to terms with his fate. The film is based on true-life events from writer Will Reiser and is directed by Jonathan Levine. 50/50 also stars Seth Rogen, Anna Kendrick, Bryce Dallas Howard and Angelica Huston. It comes to theaters on September 30, 2011.
It feels really wrong to chuckle at a trailer about a guy dealing with cancer, but I did anyway. I think this will be one of those films that could be really funny yet heartfelt which is something a lot of movies strive for but don’t quite hit. However, I have confidence in this team of writers, director and actors and am definitely looking forward to this one.
