'Don Jon' Trailer: Joseph Gordon-Levitt Has Good Vibrations In Trailer For His Directorial Debut

Feel the vibrations. With a special personalized announcement from Joseph Gordon-Levitt himself, "Don Jon" has its first trailer. The film -- previously titled "Don Jon's Addiction" after it debuted at the Sundance Film Festival in January -- is Gordon-Levitt's directorial debut. (He also wrote the script.)

"There's only a few things I really care about in life," says Don Jon (Gordon-Levitt) in the trailer for "Don Jon," before rattling off a checklist of what he holds nearest and dearest to his heart. "My body, my pad, my ride, my family, my church, my boys, my girls, my porn." That's right: Don Jon is addicted to pornography, a crutch Gordon-Levitt uses to explore male and female relationships and the pressure of media-enhanced expectations.

"It's just that idea of how we objectify each other and how the media contributes to that," Gordon-Levitt told HuffPost Entertainment about the film. "That's an idea that's really interesting and funny to me. That's where it all stems from. 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?"

The trailer for "Don Jon" gives away a lot of the film's charms -- including cameo appearances from Anne Hathaway and Channing Tatum in a fake romcom within the movie -- but there are still some surprises in store for audiences to savor when the movie arrives in October. For now, enjoy Scarlett Johansson as Barbara Sugarman, Don Jon's love interest and the potential lost daughter of Marisa Tomei's Mona Lisa Vito from "My Cousin Vinny."

Julianne Moore, Glenne Headly, Brie Larson and Tony Danza, in a comeback performance, all co-star with Gordon-Levitt and Johansson. Watch the "Don Jon" trailer over at Apple.
