500 Days of Summer has begun its limited release as of midnight today. Congratulations to screenwriters Michael Weber and Scott Neustadter and director Marc Webb on his first feature film! Joesph Gordon-Levitt and Zooey Deschanel have been receiving rave reviews. My newspaper, The National Post, published their review of 500 Days of Summer this morning: “(500) Days of Summer: What’s not to love?”. Enough said!

“I sometimes think though that starting things–you sort of kind of have to pretend like you have a really good idea and convince yourself and others that you do. And then they jump on and then it turns into a good idea. It kind of creates something out of nothing.” – JoeJuly 16th, 2009
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.”

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.July 11th, 2009
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.
