That’s a great poster. It’s the first art for Young Adult, the new Jason Reitman film, which reteams him with Juno screenwriter Diablo Cody. The film stars Charlize Theron as a boozed out writer of teen girl books, who returns to her home town to try and score with the boy she loved in high school, now grown up to be Patrick Wilson.
I know a couple of people who have seen the film, and even some folks whose opinions I trust. Apparently this is a huge role for Theron, who displays serious comedic chops. Also great, I’ve heard, is Patton Oswalt, who plays a guy stuck in a high school mindset. And the movie is apparently unreletingly black, making it much less traditionally ‘likable’ than Reitman’s previous efforts. I’ve heard it’s almost unrelentingly dark. That sounds great!
Young Adult comes to theaters in December.
