Relativity Media has released the first official trailer for their upcoming film, DON JON. In his directorial debut, writer-director Joseph Gordon-Levitt also stars as Jon Martello—a New Jersey guy who loves his family, his friends, his church… and his porn. When he meets Barbara Sugarman (Scarlett Johansson), a perfect “dime” with an infatuation with romantic Hollywood movies, they struggle to find happiness while wrestling with their respective ideals of what the opposite sex should be.
Julianne Moore, Tony Danza, Glenne Headly and Brie Larson also star in this insightful and unexpected comedy about searching for true intimacy in a world full of unrealistic expectations.
The Sundance and SXSW film festival favorite, DON JON opens in theaters nationwide on October 18, 2013.
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.
