Don Jon, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Tony Danza
Awards season is right around the corner, and one of the possible contenders is actor (and now director) Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s latest film, “Don Jon.” The actor’s directorial debut sees him playing a man struggling to have a stable relationship while fighting an increasing addiction to pornography. When the film played at Sundance, our own Rodrigo Perez gave the film an in-between rating of B and B+, calling it a “beguiling romantic comedy” and praising the “characters who love to challenge their stereotypes.”

After becoming a hit at Sundance and South by Southwest (our review called it "impressive and charming", Joseph Gordon-Levitt's directorial debut, the porn addiction comedy "Don Jon," finally has a trailer. And judging by the brief glimpse at the movie, it's easy to see why audiences went loony for this – it looks pretty damn charming, with Levitt leading a amazing cast (including Scarlett Johansson, Julianne Moore, Tony Danza, and Brie Larson) and an original, totally identifiable take on the modern romantic comedy.

Bradley Cooper
The saga continues... For a moment, it looked like everything was going to be okay on the troubled western "Jane Got A Gun." After Michael Fassbender's departure followed not longer after by director Lynne Ramsay's dramatic bailing on the movie literally days before cameras were going to roll (depending on who you ask she blindsided producers, or simply couldn't come to terms with them) the movie recovered with "Warrior" director Gavin O'Connor taking over the director's chair. The cast was shaken up a bit with the long attached Natalie Portman (who is also a producer on the movie) being joined by Joel Edgerton (who changed roles during the casting shuffle), Bradley Cooper (replacing Jude Law who also eventually exited) and Noah Emmerich. Now the movie has lost another major actor.

Is there anything Joseph Gordon-Levitt can’t do? Or, possibly more accurately, is there anything that any right-minded person wouldn’t want to see Joseph Gordon-Levitt do? He’s the anti-Anne Hathaway in the respect that everybody loves him whether they have good reason or not, and the man now looks set to add another string to his bow.

While you can continue to debate the merits of Sunday night's Oscars hosted by Seth MacFarlane (as we have already done), the bottom line is the Academy got what they wanted by hiring the edgy, younger skewing, "Family Guy" creator. The ratings for the show were up in 2013 with 40.3 million viewers tuning in, the highest figure since 41.3 million turned on their televisions to see if "Avatar" would win Best Picture. (It didn't.) Anyway, if the Academy wants to go with the same gameplan next year, they'll have to find someone else.

Easily one of the major buzz titles to come out of the Sundance Film Festival this year, Joseph Gordon-Levitt's directorial debut "Don Jon's Addiction" picked up nearly universal rave reviews, but many people also wondered: would the movie be able to keep the sex scenes intact? Let's rewind a bit. In the film, JGL has the titular lead, a porn addicted lothario who begins a relationship with two different women and tries to unplug from the smut he thoroughly enjoys. The movie itself also contains a handful of porn clips, but it looks like they will be getting the axe.

Now that the acquisitions floodgates are open, the buys keep piling up like it's Black Friday in studio shopping baskets, and this afternoon has brought news of the biggest deal yet at the festival, with Variety the first trade to report that Relativity Media are set to put down a what may be a record-breaking sum for "Don Jon's Addiction," the raunchy comedy that marks the directorial debut of Joseph Gordon-Levitt. The film also stars the "Looper" actor as a modern-day New Jersey Casanova, who's unable to form real relationships with women due to his porn addiction, but begins to soften up after meeting two women, a younger girl (Scarlett Johansson) and an older classmate (Julianne Moore), and we'd picked it out as one of the films likely to spark off a bidding war.
