The quirky romcom co-starring Scarlett Johansson opens in the UK on November 15
The first clip from Joseph Gordon-Levitt‘s directorial debut Don Jon is now online.
Gordon-Levitt posted the minute-long teaser on his YouTube channel on Father’s Day this Sunday (June 16) because it focuses on Jon Martello Sr, the film’s patriarch character played by Tony Danza. Scroll down and click ‘play’ to watch.
As well as directing and writing the film’s script, Gordon-Levitt stars as Jon Martello, a body-conscious womaniser whose friends call him Don Jon because of his ability to score with the opposite sex. “Don Jon” enjoys porn even more than pulling, but attempts to turn over a new leaf when he meets Scarlett Johansson‘s Barbara Sugarman, an attractive young woman who prefers Hollywood romcoms to dirty movies.
The film’s cast also includes Julianne Moore as Don Jon’s therapist, Esther. Meanwhile, Anne Hathaway, Channing Tatum and Cuba Gooding Jr all make knowing cameos as the stars of a movie within a movie.
Don Jon premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January (2013) to generally positive reviews. It opens in US cinemas on October 18 before getting a UK release on November 15.
