50/50 is in theaters today, and just in time is this exclusive roundtable with Seth Rogen, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Will Reiser, and Anna Kendrick. This video chat features the cast having a candid chat about making the film. Additionally, there’s a new restricted clip “Evidence”.

Inspired by a true story, 50/50 is an original story about friendship, love, survival and finding humor in unlikely places. Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Seth Rogen star as best friends whose lives are changed by a cancer diagnosis in this new comedy directed by Jonathan Levine from a script by Will Reiser. 50/50 is the story of a guy’s transformative and, yes, sometimes funny journey to health – drawing its emotional core from Will Reiser’s own experience with cancer and reminding us that friendship and love, no matter what bizarre turns they take, are the greatest healers.
