Here is the trailer for 50/50 a film about a 27 year old writer who is diagnosed with cancer.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s lead role as Adam was originally going to be played by James McAvoy who had to drop out due to other commitments.

This comedy, drama had various titles in pre-release including I’m with Cancer and Get Well Soon. The problem here was many people said they would not have gone to see a film about cancer which sounded downbeat which kind of misses the point as the film is a comedy about friendship and living life so they came up with 50/50. Will that work for, Summit Entertainment, the studio behind the film? I expect it is 50/50!
