New trailer for cancer comedy 50/50 plays up the yuks

A brand new trailer for Jonathan Levine‘s ‘cancer comedy’ 50/50 has debuted online. Although a full minute shorter than the trailer released back in May, it gives us a better idea of the film’s sense of humour (something that needs to be stressed to any potential viewers who are hesitant about seeing a comedy about cancer).

Joseph Gordon-Levitt stars as a young man battling cancer, with the help of his BFF (Seth Rogen) and 24-year-old therapist (Anna Kendrick). 50/50 was written by Rogen’s real life buddy Will Reiser, based on his own experiences with the disease. Rogen and frequent collaborator Evan Goldberg produce.

Check out the new trailer and share your thoughts below.

You can also watch the trailer in HD over at Yahoo.

50/50 arrives in Australian cinemas November 10, 2011.

Discuss: Could 50/50 have a legitimate shot at the Oscars, or will all the raunchy comedy be a detriment to its awards’ run?
