Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s cancer comedy 50/50 gets a trailer
The first trailer for cancer comedy 50/50, starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, has landed online.
The film is loosely based on the real-life experience of screenwriter Will Reiser, as JGL’s happy-go-lucky 27-year-old, Adam, is struck down in his prime by the big C.
It’s not as grim as all that sounds though, with the comedic snarkiness bringing a refreshing edge to what could have been ‘TV movie of the week’ material.
While it may be too risky for awards season, it looks like it’ll give Gordon-Levitt another boost on the path to becoming one of the most consistently impressive actors of his generation.
