"Don Jon" starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Scarlett Johansson is a movie about a New Jersey pick up artist (Gordon-Levitt) who's addicted to porn, despite dating a girl (Johansson) who in turn is obsessed with chick flicks. "Don Jon" is the first film to be written and directed by Gordon-Levitt. It also stars Julianne Moore and Tony Danza.
Watch the "Don Jon" trailer below:
The stimulating "Don Jon" trailer begins with Gordon-Levitt saying, "There's only a few things I really care about in life. My body. My pad. My ride. My family. My church. My boys. My girls. My porn." With sharp cuts to each aspect of Don Jon's life.
This mantra is cycled through a few times before it is interrupted when Gordon-Levitt meets Johansson, in full guidette mode, at a bar. But despite falling in love with Johansson's character, Don Jon cannot give up his porn habit. Johansson catches Gordon-Levitt watching porn in the nude, leading to a funny confrontation, in which Gordon-Levitt pays out Johansson's obsession with romantic movies.
"I thought the idea of a guy, who watches too much pornography. And a young woman, who watches too many romantic Hollywood movies, was a hilarious way to ask the question: How do the different kinds of media we consume impact our lives and our love lives?" Gordon-Levitt told Hollywood Life.
Despite the fact that the "Don Jon" movies is all about sex and has an abundance of steamy love scenes between Gordon-Levitt and Johansson, the pair do not appear nude in the film. Gordon-Levitt told Hollywood Life not to expect any full frontal nude scenes in "Don Jon". "It would just be distracting," he said. "This is not a movie of brutal realism; it's a comedy and it's a story. It's sort of a parable, so there would really be no reason to have any nudity."
Either way, if the "Don Jon" trailer is anything to go by, the movie should be quite titillating. There is a hot make out scene between Gordon-Levitt and Johansson in a hallway. And at the 1:51 mark, there is a blink-and-you'll-miss-it shot of Gordon-Levitt watching porn naked. Though with a strategically placed laptop.
Another "Don Jon" trailer shows an extended version Gordon-Levitt and Johansson making out in the hallway.
"Don Jon" will be in theaters Sept. 27.
