Paramount Pictures has released the first movie trailer for the Jason Reitman directed, Diablo Cody scripted film Young Adult, which boasts a great cast of actors that includes, Charliz Theron, Patton Oswalt, Patrick Wilson and Elizabeth Reaser. I really enjoy the films that Reitman has made so far, and he and Cody made a solid team for the film Juno. Young Adult looks like it will be a charming film, regardless of all the Diablo Cody hate I've seen since I've been reporting on the movie. I think Rietman is a great storyteller that will steer the story in the right directions.
Here's the synopsis:
Charlize Theron plays Mavis Gary, a writer of teen literature who returns to her small hometown to relive her glory days and attempt to reclaim her happily married high school sweetheart (Patrick Wilson). When returning home proves more difficult than she thought, Mavis forms an unusual bond with a former classmate (Patton Oswalt) who hasn’t quite gotten over high school, either.
The movie is set to be released on December 9th. Watch the trailer below and tell us what you think.
