It’s too bad that Sony, David Fincher and The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo have already locked down the ‘feel-bad movie of Christmas’ tagline, because it looks like Jason Reitman‘s fourth film Young Adult might be a contender for that title.
The movie, scripted by Juno writer Diablo Cody, is a dark comedy about an alcoholic youth-lit author (Charlize Theron) who returns to her hometown to chase her now-married high school flame, played by Patrick Wilson. The one-sheet for the movie has just hit, and it looks like something that could be snuck onto a middle-school bookshelf alongside old Judy Blume books.

Their third film, and their first in 3D (and first outright holiday movie) sees the pair reunited and, judging by the looks on their faces, back in trouble.
The first full official image of the pair and persistent scene-stealer Neil Patrick Harris is after the break. Read More »

We’ve been hearing about the next Jason Reitman-Diablo Cody collaboration, Young Adult, for over a year now, and with each tidbit of news I’ve become more and more eager to see the film. And now that the release date has finally been announced, I finally know when I’ll actually get to watch it.
The film stars Charlize Theron as a writer who returns to her hometown in order to win back her high school sweetheart (Patrick Wilson). But don’t be fooled by the romcom-esque premise — Cody herself has described the project as “pretty serious and fucked up.” Hit the jump for details on the project, including the release date.
