Joseph Gordon-Levitt Shaves His Head In Three New Stills From 50/50

Last week we posted the first trailer for 50/50 and I couldn't sing the movie's praises loud enough. It is easily the best film that I've seen thus far in 2011 and, though it's still early, it'll be a challenge for any other title the rest of the year to surpass it. Sadly the movie isn't set to be released until September 30, but that just means I have four full months to gush about it more. Today's gushing comes courtesy of three new stills released by Summit.

All of the new images are from scenes seen in the trailer, but it is my pleasure to help contextualize them a bit without giving too much away. For starters, the first image features Adam, played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt in a session with his therapist at the cancer center, played by Anna Kendrick (This is more towards the beginning of the film, as you can see by the fact that Adam still has hair). The second image is from one of my favorite scenes in the movie and talking about it too much would give away plot details, so I'll just say that it features Adam and his best friend Kyle, played by Seth Rogen, destroying a painting in Adam's backyard. Finally, the third photo sees Adam not wanting to wait for chemotherapy to steal his hair so he decides to shave it off himself.

Check them out below and click on each image to see it full size.
