I was brainstorming a list of Oscar movies I’m looking forward to this awards season and one movie that I had completely forgotten about is the Jason Reitman directed and Diablo Cody scripted YOUNG ADULT. I guess it’s because the film has been absent from the festival circuits, but it feels like it’s flying completely under the radar. Some felt that UP IN THE AIR had the opposite problem in that it peaked too soon and the buzz ended up faltering out when it came time for voters to pick the best movie of the year, so maybe Paramount is strategically keeping this one low key until it’s time to make their big push.
Today we get a new image and a new poster from the film about a spoiled young adult writer that returns to her hometown to break up the wedding of her high school sweetheart. The film stars Charlize Theron, Patrick Wilson, Patton Oswalt and J.K. Simmons. YOUNG ADULT will hit theaters on December 9th.
