First Red Band Clip from Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s DON JON Starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Scarlett Johansson, & Tony Danza
The first red band clip for star Joseph Gordon-Levitt‘s directorial debut, Don Jon, has been released online – and appropriately wishes us a Happy Father’s Day. Formerly titled Don Jon’s Addiction, Don Jon saw extremely positive reactions and reviews from its premier at Sundance back in January. Gordon-Levitt wrote, directed, and stars in the dramedy as Joseph Martello – a porn-addicted Jersey Shore type guido who tries to reform himself upon meeting Barbara Sugarman (Scarlett Johansson). The clip provides some good laughs as it shows us the first time Joe brings Barbara home to meet the parents. How about those accents? And could there be a more appropriate song for this than Marky Marks Good Vibrations? I don’t think so. Hit the jump to take a look!
Jon Martello (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is a strong, handsome, good old-fashioned guy. His buddies call him Don Jon due to his ability to “pull” a different woman every weekend, but even the finest fling doesn’t compare to the bliss he finds alone in front of the computer watching pornography. Barbara Sugarman (Scarlett Johansson) is a bright, beautiful, good old-fashioned girl. Raised on romantic Hollywood movies, she’s determined to find her Prince Charming and ride off into the sunset. Wrestling with good old-fashioned expectations of the opposite sex, Jon and Barbara struggle against a media culture full of false fantasies to try and find true intimacy in this unexpected comedy written and directed by Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
