What do you care about most in life? In Don Jon, Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s directorial debut, Don Martello (Gordon-Levitt) leads a simple existence. He’s got his own hierarchy of needs: “My body, my pad, my ride, my family, my church, my boys, my girls, and my porn.” And it seems to be working out pretty well for Don, until he meets Barbara (Scarlett Johansson) – the bombshell of his dreams with a Jersey accent to match.
The film premiered at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival under the title Don Jon’s Addiction where EW described it as “an improbably entertaining and kind-hearted comedy about a specimen of New Jersey manhood.” Take a look at the first trailer for the film after the jump. It has a clubby, manic, fast-paced vibe that draws the viewer in, before slowing down and hitting the punchline – that porn may be a deal breaker for the romantic comedy-obsessed Barbara. Tony Danza and Julianne Moore co-star in the comedy, which even features a fake movie-within-the-movie starring Channing Tatum and Anne Hathaway.
Don Jon hits theaters October 18.
