The trailer for 50/50, penned by Will Reiser (his first feature) and directed by Jonathan Levine (indie-auteur of 2008's The Wackness) has arrived, without much of a fuss, but more of a 'hey, what's up' kind of vibe.
You can't underestimate the power of Seth Rogen's bear-like voice and demeanour to simultaneously soothe the senses and elicit giggles. Team that with Joseph Gordon Levitt's unwitting charm and the commonly mishandled subject of cancer and you've got a slow-burn success on your hands, people. This is no My Sister's Keeper: not a screeching Cameron Diaz in sight--rather, an inviting Anna Kendrick as Katie, Adam's (Joseph Gordon Levitt) therapist.
There's currently no Australian release date for this flick, but with the US release slated for 30 September 2011, it can't be too far away.
