Paramount Pictures is running unannounced pop-up screenings of Jason Reitman‘s new film Young Adult in cities around North America. As a special bonus, Reitman and Paramount enlisted the curatorial services of Los Angeles’ famous pop culture art gallery Gallery1988 to pick the artists and produce limited edition pieces of art for the surprise screenings.

There have been pop-up screenings in Toronto, Minneapolis, Chicago, and Austin, each with an accompanying poster. (The Austin show featured a Q&A moderated by Patton Oswalt, who led the audience in a ‘no talking’ PSA shoot. That would have been fun.) Tonight’s screening is in San Francisco, and once again attendees get a unique piece of limited edition artwork. For the San Francisco show, Furturtle (aka artist Travis Bone) designed the poster. Check it out in full after the break. Read More »

As we told you yesterday, Paramount Pictures is running unannounced pop-up screenings of Jason Reitman‘s new film Young Adult in cities around North America. As a special bonus, Jason and Paramount enlisted the curatorial services of Los Angeles’s famous pop culture art gallery Gallery1988 to pick the artists and produce limited edition pieces of art for the surprise screenings.

I’ve been told there will be more pop up screenings in the coming week or two, although I have no idea where or when. Each screening will have a unique piece of limited edition artwork produced by a different artist. If you’re in a major city I would keep my eyes open for a pop-up screening in your area. Be sure to check back to see more art when we get it!

The first screening took place in Toronto Canada  and featured a poster by Lil Tuffy.  The second screening took place tonight in Minneapolis, MN with a limited edition print from Aesthetic Apparatus. Check it out after the jump.

Exclusive ‘Young Adult’ Alternate Trailer

Here’s a slightly different trailer for Jason Reitman‘s new film Young Adult. The film is scripted by Diablo Cody and features Charlize Theron as Mavis, a struggling, damaged author who heads back to her home town to win back her old flame, played by Patrick Wilson. Trouble is, he’s a married family man. Not that it really matters to Mavis. She’s determined to bulldoze her way back into his life.

As in the other trailer you may have seen earlier today, Theron’s character is announced as a giant bitch with the opening chords of David Bowie’s ‘Queen Bitch’ well before someone in the trailer gets around to calling her out on it. From there, we’re treated to a collection of moments of Mavis being terrible to others, and to herself. We’d heard the movie was supposed to be very dark, even uncomfortable. So far, that’s on point. But moments with Patton Oswalt lighten the mood a bit, if not quite in the way we’re used to seeing from him.

This trailer swaps out the clothes shopping gag that hits towards the end of the ‘clean’ trailer for a slightly more raunchy joke. Check it out below. Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

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. With that portrait of a passed-out Theron, the youth-lit derived poster is in the running for most inspired design of 2011. Check it out in full below. Read More »

Paramount Pictures has released the first official photo of Charlize Theron in Jason Reitman‘s upcoming film Young Adult. In the film 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.” The movie costars Patton Oswalt and Patrick Wilson. I’ve heard good things coming out of the test screenings in Southern California, including praise for Theron, Oswalt and Diablo Cody‘s screenplay (which has been described as completely different than any of her past work). The film is not expected to appear at any of the festivals, skipping Reitman’s staples of Telluride and Toronto. Paramount Pictures will release Adult in theaters on December 16th 2011. Hit the jump to see the first photo.

We’ve been hearing about the next Jason ReitmanDiablo 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.
