Marc Webb’s Guest Blogging; Got Questions?

Marc Webb will be guest blogging on FirstShowing.net for the next few weeks up until the release of 500 Days of Summer. He made his first post today:

These were the very first virgin eyes to check out our flick. And when we got our numbers back we were right – women liked 500 Days of Summer. It’s a romantic comedy. No big surprise. But there was something else.

The dudes liked it too.

Not only did the dudes like it. The dudes liked it MORE than the women. The numbers for the women were great but the numbers for the guys were off the charts. They were on par with some very successful male driven action fare and hard edged comedies. For a romantic comedy? A romcom? What the fuck?

Yep, Marc Webb is awesome and you should expect all his blog posts to be just as entertaining as this one. By the way, he is also taking any questions and ideas for subjects. Send an email to Alex at FirstShowing.net and he’ll pass them on to Marc.

I’ll be sure to update you here whenever Marc makes a post but FirstShowing.net is a fantastic site about new movies you might want to check out if you don’t already.

One last thing: Reading Marc’s post got me even more pumped about 500 Days of Summer and it should do the same for you: we are lucky enough to be following this unbelievably good, upcoming film but surprisingly a lot of people still don’t know about it! Be sure to share your love and links you find entertaining to get more people interested in the film–there are buttons on this site to make it easy to share on Facebook and Twitter. Let’s make sure 500 Days of Summer doesn’t go unnoticed when it is released July 17th!

The Fierce Sensitivity of Joseph Gordon-Levitt

Joesph Gordon-LevittNew York Magazine’s Summer Guide just published a feature on 500 Days of Summer’s Joesph Gordon-Levitt. A fantastic write-up by Logan Hill that is sure to impress. Be sure to check out the article that includes comments by Zooey Deschanel and Marc Webb.

I’ve heard executives say, ‘Audiences are stupid, kids are stupid,’ but that’s not going to fly anymore [...] it’s the same with how love stories are told in movies. 500 Days of Summer wouldn’t have made sense in our parents’ generation. It reminds me so much of 2009.

Video: Behind the Scenes of 500 Days of Summer

Access Hollywood has released a short behind the scenes video for 500 Days of Summer! It has quick interviews with Zooey Deschanel, Joe Gordon-Levitt and director Marc Webb and features many new, great clips from the film (including some Matthew Gray Gubler love.)

I like romantic comedy as a genre but I think it can get really very stuck in its ways and I so excited to read a script for a romantic comedy that was really fresh and different. — Zooey Deschanel

Unfortunately I live in Canada and can’t watch the clip… so help me out and please describe the scene in the comments below!
