Relativity Media has released a new trailer for Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s directorial debut, Don Jon. Gordon-Levitt also wrote and stars in the comedy as a contemporary, porn-addicted Don Juan-type who attempts to reform himself. While the first trailer was a great introduction to the film’s tone and style, this new one does a swell job of teasing the relationship between Gordon-Levitt and Scarlett Johansson’s characters without giving too much away. I caught the film at Sundance and it’s supremely entertaining. JGL definitely proves to be a talent behind the camera, and Don Jon has a lot to say about relationships as it pertains to our current media-obsessed culture.

Here’s the official synopsis for Don Jon:
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.
