Rosaline is a revisionist take on Shakespeare.s classic Romeo & Juliet, a comedic version that has us excited because of the creative team behind it. The fact that it.s moving from one major studio to another has me a bit concerned, though I.m waiting to see if the move is for the better, or if it will cause a delay. THR reports that Rosaline is negotiating a move from Fox to Universal, where Shawn Levy will produce the project under his 21 Laps shingle. Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber are handling screenwriting duties, and they're why I'm excited: Neustadter and Weber also penned the indie romantic comedy 500 Days (of Summer) with Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, as well as the Sundance hit The Spectacular Now. The project is being described as a Wicked version of Shakespeare's most famous play, told through the viewpoint of a secondary character . Rosaline. »

Joseph Gordon-Levitt has sex on the brain. Well, at least his titular character does in Don Jon, the actor's upcoming directorial debut. In the movie's first trailer, we hear the guy repeat the following in a strong Jersey accent: "There's only a few things I really care about in life. My body, my pad, my ride, my family, my church, my boys, my girls and my porn." But, not surprisingly, that last part quickly becomes an issue when he meets Barbara (Scarlett Johansson), tells her she's "the most beautiful thing" he's ever seen in his life and they begin dating. Also starring Tony Danza, Julianne Moore and Glenne Headly, Don Jon is due in theaters on Oct. 18. »
Joseph Gordon-Levitt has seen his star steadily rise over the last decade, shedding the child star image he gained from his role in 3rd Rock From the Sun in indie features such as Brick and Mysterious Skin before transitioning to blockbuster features such as Inception and G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra. The 2013 Sundance Film Festival, however, saw Gordon-Levitt show a new side of himself, as he premiered his feature length filmmaking debut. Titled Don Jon, Gordon-Levitt takes on directing, writing, and starring duties, appearing onscreen alongside Scarlett Johansson, Julianne Moore, Tony Danza, Brie Larson, and Rob Brown. The first trailer for this movie has now been released, and can be seen below.

Movie stars are a vital part of the Hollywood landscape. Without them, it would be almost impossible for certain films to catch on with audiences. Any movie fan has his or her list of favourite actors and actresses and most of the time, the names on that list will include the big A-list stars that we love so much.
The last couple of years, I’ve noticed articles online lamenting the end of the movie star and highlighting the fact that there are very few (or none at all) new movie stars. Whenever a guy like Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Tom Hardy, or Michael Fassbender is attached to a project, the term “rising star” is frequently used, but there aren’t many pundits who would consider them to be legitimate box office draws.
Eventually, the movie studios are going to have to find a remedy for this issue, but for the time »

"There's only a few things I really care about in life"
Could it get anymore amazing than Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Scarlett Johansson in the same movie? We think it can when Gordon-Levitt is also directing the movie. Don Jon marks the stars directorial debut (he also wrote the script) and from a look at the first trailer it is obvious why this movie was such a success at The Sundance Festival. The movie follows Levitt as Don Jon, an average guy from Jersey, who has one problem; he's addicted to porn. This may pose a problem when he meets Barbara (Johansson), his love interest. Don Jon also stars Julianne Moore and Tony Danza and hits screens October 18.

Fans have been anxiously waiting for Superman and Batman to join forces in film for decades now, and Henry Cavill hopes that the waiting is about to come to an end. The "Man of Steel" leading man revealed to SFX that he wants a big screen team-up just as badly as everyone else does.
"I think it would be really interesting with the age-old Batman/Superman conflict," says Cavill, "because they are two different sides of the same coin and their methods are entirely different. And I think it would actually make for an interesting story as to why, first of all, they were going head to head and how. I think that would make a great story.”
With "Man of Steel" rebooting the Superman franchise, theories are running rampant that it will introduce the Superman mythos into a larger DC cinematic universe, one that possibly includes »

Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi have dropped $26.5 million on a 10,000 square foot home in Montecito, making them neighbors of Oprah. The property is stunning, with ocean views everywhere, 13 acres, what appears to be a wall with an actual portcullis, and nine fireplaces. This is their ninth home.
Just hours before the Boy Scouts vote to allow open scouting for junior members, the organization’s president says that the new policy is the right thing to do. Wayne Perry says “While some people wish the proposed resolution would go further, it was clear from our listening phase that changing adult standards would have conflicted with the majority of our partners, 70% of which are religious organizations, and would have disrupted our ability to deliver Scouting. Conversely, some have »

A fairly easy-going guy, Joseph Gordon-Levitt introduces the first trailer for his porn-themed directorial debut Don Jon, which premiered at Sundance earlier this year to fairly positive reviews. ‘I’m really proud of it,’ he says with a toughly cute smile. ‘I hope you like it.’ Gordon-Levitt stars as a porn-addicted young ladies man from Jersey, while Scarlett Johansson co-stars as The Girl — Barbara the most beautiful thing he has ever seen in his life, but can’t figure out why he loves porn.

The first trailer has arrived online for Don Jon, Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s directorial debut about a Jersey guy obsessed with the gym, his family, chasing girls... and porn. Gordon-Levitt stars in the title role as a Jersey Shore-esque character, with an unhealthy smut addiction that proves surprisingly hard to kick, even when he hooks up with Scarlett Johansson. She, understandably, isn’t best pleased. But is Jgl’s addiction any more damaging then her obsession with rom-coms? The answer is probably yes... Take a look at the new...

Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s directorial debut, Don Jon, blazed into Sundance all set to make a heart breaker out of its director. What it did was snag shocked gasps from the press. The film was deemed too graphic for its depiction of on screen porn. It has since been re-edited following a tussle with the MPAA who were ready to slap the film with an Nc-17 certificate. Judging from this first trailer though, the presence of porn seems…well, rather necessary.
Starring, written and directed by Gordon-Levitt, the Looper star leads this tale of a modern day Don Juan. Don Martello’s life is driven by his need for a great body, a great car, a great family and an even greater addiction to porn. As he finds himself drawn to Barbara (Scarlett Johansson) he must choose between self-gratification and taking a chance on a real relationship. What will triumph? Barbara »

"There's only a few things I really care about in life. My body, my pad, my ride, my family, my church, my boys, my girls...and my porn." So goes the opening narration in the very first trailer for "Don Jon" (f.k.a. "Don Jon's Addiction"), the upcoming Joseph Gordon-Levitt comedy that represents the "Looper" star's first feature-length effort as a writer/director. The film, which debuted to mostly-positive reviews at this year's Sundance Film Festival (the film was championed by our own Drew McWeeny, though In Contention's Guy Lodge came away less than impressed), centers on Jon "Don Jon" Martello, a vapid Jersey-ite »

Gordon-Levitt also stars as Jon Martello, a ladies' man obsessed with pornography. Jon decides to become less selfish and more honest after learning about the realities of love from old-fashioned romantic Barbara Sugarman (Scarlett Johansson) and night school classmate Esther (Julianne Moore).
"I wanted to tell a love story, and in my observations, what gets in the way of love often times is the way the people objectify each other," he recently explained.
The movie will open on November 15 in the UK.

Today we have the trailer for Joseph Gordon-Levitt's directorial debut, a film called "Don Jon," which stars himself, Scarlett Johansson, Tony Danza, and Julianne Moore. Check it out below. Plot: The story revolves around Don Jon (Gordon-Levitt), a Jersey man obsessed with three things: chasing women, pumping iron, and watching (lots and lots of) pornography. However, after meeting the girl of his dreams -- Barbara Sugarman (Johansson) -- he begins to change the way he views sex. The new movie is also written by Gordon-Levitt and premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. It's now set to hit theaters on October 18th. Trailer: »
As he tells the audience via voiceover: "There's only a few things I really care about in life: My body, my pad, my ride, my family, my church, my boys, my girls and my porn." It's only when Don Jon meets Scarlett Johansson's Barbara that the unrealistic expectations he's developed from watching porn come back to haunt him.
While the film itself looks fun, the fake movie Don Jon and Barbara go to see, starring Anne Hathaway and Channing Tatum, looks like a very funny highlight. Keep your eyes peeled for that in the trailer.
Check out the trailer above. »
Who could have guessed that the little kid from Angels in the Outfield would grow up to not only be one of the most beloved actors of his generation, but that he'd make his directorial debut with a rom-com about a hunky Jersey boy who has an addiction to Internet porn? And that it would feature a prime role for his Angels in the Outfield costar Tony Danza? It is indeed a strange, unpredictable world we live in. Joseph Gordon-Levitt's film is called Don Jon, though when it premiered to rave reviews at Sundance earlier this year it went by the slightly longer name of Don Jon's Addiction. In it Jgl stars as a good looking dude from Jersey who is obsessed with muscles, fast cars, and good looking women. He finally meets one he can see himself with (Scarlett Johansson...
