Music and Songs 50/50 Movie Starring Seth Rogen & Joseph Gordon-Levitt
Pearl Jam's "Ledbetter" from their rearviewmirror greatest hits album is one of the songs included on the 50/50 Soundtrack which plays while the movie's end credits roll. There's no official soundtrack for 50/50, however, most songs are available as individual song downloads.
On the movie's trailer, Cut Copy's "Where I'm Going" from the album Zonoscope was chosen as the music cue for Joseph Gordon Levitt shaving his head with a horrified Seth Rogen looking on. The other song on the 50/50 movie trailer is "Carries On" by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes .
Cars 2 & Super 8 composer Michael Giacchino was tasked with the difficulty of coming up with music for a cancer comedy soundtrack score.
50/50 was filmed in Hollywood North, my hometown of Vancouver, Canada which is actually the ideal location for shooting a movie with this theme. For the most part, the weather's overcast and dreary like London but occasionally when the sun comes out, it's absolutely beautiful.
In some ways, the contrast in weather gives Vancouverites a mini reason to celebrate and appreciate life when the weather's nice in Lotusland much like Rogen's somewhat optimistic spin on his friend's fate as he muses "What are your chances? 50/50. Not that bad. If you were a casino game, you'd have the best odds".
Seth Rogen and Joseph Gordon-Levitt star in 50/50 which was released nationwide on September 30, 2011.

Song in Hall Corridor Scene After Chemo - "To Love Somebody" - BeeGees
As Joseph Gordon-Levitt is walking out after one of his chemo sessions after eating a spiked brownie, he looks remarkably blissed out despite his dire condition. The song is even more poignant given the recent death of Robin Gibb who fought cancer only to ultimately succumb to kidney failure.
