Trailer Watch: Joseph Gordon-Levitt in 50/50

From Summit Entertainment (via Coming Soon), comes the trailer for 50/50 (formerly titled I’m with Cancer), a comedy-drama based on screenwriter Will Reiser’s own experiences, about a young man (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) diagnosed with cancer. Sounds like a laugh-riot, huh? Well, check out the trailer below; I laughed out loud a number of times. This movie looks great.

50/50 rounds out its incredibly impressive cast Seth Rogen, Anna Kendrick, Bryce Dallas Howard, Anjelica Huston and Philip Baker Hall, and hits theaters on September 30th.

I drew Invincible.

I finished Invincible Ultimate Collection, Vol. 6 this morning, so I felt like drawing a little Invincible.

The story seems to be little more than an excuse to string together weird and/or fun things together, but the animation and character designs are fantastic. There’s an almost seamless blend of 2D and 3D animation at play here, and I can’t help wondering what this team could do with a budget. Definitely check this out when you have seven minutes to spare.

Also check out “Meet Buck” by the same trio.

Trailer Watch: Another Muppets teaser trailer!

Hot on the heels of last week’s Green with Envy trailer comes another teaser for The Muppets, the upcoming return of Jim Henson’s second greatest creations (after The Dark Crystal) — once again, courtesy Yahoo! Movies and masquerading as a trailer for another movie. This teaser is clearly a riff on The Hangover Part II‘s teaser, called The Fuzzy Pack.

Check it out:

Once again, The Muppets hits theaters on November 23. It was directed by James Bobin from a script by Jason Segel and Nick Stoller, and it stars Segel, Amy Adams, Chris Cooper, and a host of others.
