Love, sex, relationships...porn? Yep, that XXX material once relegated to magazines stuffed under mattresses and shoved into rarely used dresser drawers is now nearly mainstream. Everyone looks at it, but what if looking at that material was part of your daily life to the point where it affected how you relate to the opposite sex? That's the jumping off point for Joseph Gordon-Levitt's feature directorial debut "Don Jon," and a new trailer has arrived to give you a sample of what he's put together.

Don Jon's Addiction Scarlett Johansson Joseph Gordon-Levitt

Love, sex, relationships...porn? Yep, that XXX material once relegated to magazines stuffed under mattresses and shoved into rarely used dresser drawers is now nearly mainstream. Everyone looks at it, but what if looking at that material was part of your daily life to the point where it affected how you relate to the opposite sex? That's the jumping off point for Joseph Gordon-Levitt's feature directorial debut "Don Jon," and a new trailer has arrived to give you a sample of what he's put together.

Written by and starring Gordon-Levitt as well, alongside an ensemble that includes Scarlett Johansson, Tony Danza and Julianne Moore, the story follows a stereotypical New Jersey guido who loves women and yet is addicted to porn, who embarks on a journey to find a more gratifying sex life, but meets two women who forever change his outlook. As we noted in our review from Sundance, it's a charming and impressive effort all around, and one that will likely be a great treat this fall for audiences. But do you want to see it a little bit earlier? If you're in Chicago, we've got a treat for you.

Next Thursday, August 22nd, we'll be co-presenting an advance screening of the film in your fair city. How do you win a pair of tickets? Email us with your name and tell us your favorite movie by an actor-turned-director (check our our recent feature if you need some help). Good luck! And remember, you must live in Chicago or be able to attend the screening next Thursday evening.

"Don Jon" opens nationwide on September 27th.

Update: Contest closed, winners be contacted via email.
