Jason Reitman's Men, Women & Children Teaser Poster: Together, Yet So Alone

Its no secret, I'm a huge Jason Reitman fan. I've been following his career since his short films were released by Atom Films (remember that site?). His movies have dramatically changed my life, the amazing effect of powerful storytelling. I'm sadly not taking the trip to the Toronto International Film Festival this year, and will likely be missing the debut of his newest movie Men, Women & Children. The film, again, looks fantastic. I love how Reitman's teaser trailers almost feel like their own short films/mood pieces, spotlighting characters, ideas and situations that resonate within all of us (you can watch the teaser trailer for Men, Women & Children here).

Jason's teaser posters have also been some of the most artful marketing from big studios. Unfortunately it seems like the home video art and or theatrical one-sheet are more under the tight control of the marketing departments. The Men, Women & Children teaser poster is another great illustration. Hit the jump to check out the Men, Women & Children teaser poster.

Reitman has also been a little more active on Twitter recently (he use to be really active and I loved that he use to bring an all access look into the filmmaking, post production and publicity process) answering some questions. Here are some of the interesting ones:

And while we're at it, lets take a look back at the awesome teaser posters for Jason Reitman's previous films: Thank You For Smoking teaser poster

And just as a comparison, the theatrical one-sheets and home video covers are not as good (seems like the marketing department's risk mitigation comes into play):

The Up in the Air home video release tries to sell the stars with a boring film still:

While I like the idea of the Young Adult one-sheet, it just feels cheap:


The Labor Day one-sheet made it look like a Nicolas Sparks movie adaptation:


Men, Women & Children stars: Kaitlyn Dever, Rosemarie DeWitt, Ansel Elgort, Jennifer Garner, Judy Greer, Dean Norris, Adam Sandler. Here is the film's official plot synopsis:

MEN, WOMEN & CHILDREN follows the story of a group of high school teenagers and their parents as they attempt to navigate the many ways the internet has changed their relationships, their communication, their self-image, and their love lives. The film attempts to stare down social issues such as video game culture, anorexia, infidelity, fame hunting, and the proliferation of illicit material on the internet. As each character and each relationship is tested, we are shown the variety of roads people choose – some tragic, some hopeful – as it becomes clear that no one is immune to this enormous social change that has come through our phones, our tablets, and our computers.

Men, Women & Children hits theaters on October 1st 2014.
