    Boy meets girl
    Boy falls in love
    Girl doesn't

  • When Tom, a hapless greeting card copywriter and hopeless romantic, is blindsided after his girlfriend summer dumps him, he shifts back and forth through various periods of their 500 days "together" to try to figure out where things went wrong. His reflections ultimately lead him to finally rediscover his true passions in life.

  • Directed by: Marc Webb

    Cast: Zooey Deschanel, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Clark Gregg, Minka Kelly, Matthew Gray Gubler, Rachel Boston, Geoffrey Arend, Chloe Moritz
    Producers: Jessica Tuchinsky, Mary Waters, Steven Wolfe, Mason Novick

  • This post modern love story is never what we expect it to be -- It's thorny yet exhilarating, funny and sad, a twisted journey of highs and lows that doesn't quite go where we think it will.

Zooey Deschanel’s List of Summertime Activities in Self

Although Deschanel is busy this month promoting her latest film, 500 Days of Summer (nice coincidence, right?); working on the second album by her band, She & Him; and planning her wedding to Ben Gibbard of Death Cab for Cutie, she’s eager to make the most of the season. “You can’t force fun,” she says, “but you can set up situations where fun will happen to you.”

Check out a couple more photos from Zooey’s photoshoot after the jump, as well as her playlist of summer songs.

Happy 500 Days of Summer Release Week!

It’s only Tuesday and already this week has been crazy for me. I just got home from NYC where I had an amazing time interviewing the incredibly down to earth director Marc Webb. If you were following my twitter you’d know my flight got delayed three hours and I missed the entire screening on Monday night(!)… however I just made it on time for the Wall Street Journal discussion that followed the screening with Webb and screenwriters Scott Neustadter and Michael Weber. Zooey Deschanel, who was supposed to be there as well, had to cancel last minute but said hello to the audience via prerecorded video. The creators of 500 Days of Summer are hilarious, modest guys and I am so excited for them for the release of the film this Friday.

500 Days of Summer goodness that has popped up over the past couple days:

Article: Director Marc Webb Grilled (The Wrap). Great quote: “no one will claim to be a hipster, and if they do, you should punch them in the face.”
Article: Gordon-Levitt moves on to romantic comedy (SFGate)
Article: 500 Days Of Summer Scribes Tell Us Why ‘This Is Not A Love Story’ (Latino Review). Interview with Scott Neustadter and Michael Weber.

I hope to get my interview with Marc Webb up asap. For now, here’s a photo of me and the man. Thanks again, Marc, I had such a blast and it was great to talk to you.

“Instant Chemistry, Belated Dance Number”

A fantastic article in the New York Times, written by Margy Rochlin:

In this moment, as the three joked easily with one another, it’s not hard to see why Mr. Webb knew immediately that Ms. Deschanel, who exudes a deadpan, off-kilter confidence, and Mr. Gordon-Levitt, who is subdued and earnest, would have a quiet, screwball chemistry. “To me the theme of this movie is that happiness lies not in the big, blue eyes of the beautiful girl,” Mr. Webb said.

Great writing and insight.

I was lucky enough to catch this full page article in the Movies section of National Post (Canada.) It’s an article that praises Zooey Deschanel and discusses some personal details of her life. (Sorry guys, she’s engaged–though they haven’t set a date…)
