  • 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.

Wonderful Zooey Deschanel on Conan

So, so good to see Zooey Deschanel herself, not in character, on Conan O’Brien. Thanks to Megan for sending in this clip; I missed it when it aired the first time and this is must-see.

Casting (500) Days of Summer by Marc Webb

Some interesting tidbits in this casual interview with director Marc Webb, including the fact it was Joe Gordon-Levitt who suggested Zooey Deschanel as a must to play Summer Finn.

“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.

Marc Webb’s 500 Days of Blogging #2 – 500 Minutes Out

Marc Webb has posted his second installment of his guest blogging at FirstShowing.
In this installment he posts a video (below) and this explanation:

Keen observers of the photos from the 500 Days Of Summer LA (it’s-early-I-know-but-Joe-and-Zooey-are-both-doing-movies-so-we-had-to-do-it-three-weeks-before-the-movie-actually-comes-out) premiere might notice that Mathew Gray Gubler had a knee brace and crutches while walking on the red carpet. To make a long story short – it’s my fault. The other night the guys from 500 Days of Summer (Joe, Me, Mathew and Geoffrey) went back to downtown LA on a sort of pub crawl, dance party, reminiscing event. And, like most successful drinking nights, ended up in the hospital! For more details click the video below!

500 Days of Summer Red Carpet Interviews (Update: added a response from JGL!)

James Wallace of Gordon and the Whale was off doing some cool interviews with some of the stars of 500 Days of Summer at the CineVegas red carpet premiere.

Watch the video below for Joe Gordon-Levitt, director Marc Webb, and screenwriters Michael Weber and Scott Neustadter.

UPDATE: Joe has posted the video on the front page of his site,! He also posted this response to the interview:

This is really refreshing for me to see. I just got done doing about a week straight of interviews about 500 Days of Summer. Interviews are not generally my favorite part of the job. Usually they’re sort of hum-drum and at times they’re even quite demeaning. But you, sir, just wanted to RECord a thoughtful conversation about the movie, and I wish they could all be like that. Thank you. When I get some more spare time, I’ll go find the footage from my camera, and we can make this a two-sided RECord. Thanks again.

Way to rock, Chase and James from GATW!
