First Official Poster for Jason Reitman's 'Young Adult' is Way Too Pink
Meet Mavis Gary. Well, you can't really meet her as she's passed out cold on this "book cover" poster, but that's her. THR has debuted a teaser poster for Jason Reitman's Young Adult, a Diablo Cody-written film starring Charlize Theron. To be blunt, I think this looks just plain awful. I get what they're going for, but you can't even see Theron at all, and she's straight up passed out, too. Not appealing. Plus, a bright pink and green "young adult novel" book cover? I would get as far away from this as I could if I saw it up on a wall anywhere near me. I'm excited for this because it's Jason Reitman, but what a terrible poster to start with.
Academy Award winner Charlize Theron plays Mavis Gary, a writer of YA 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 a bond with a former classmate (Patton Oswalt) who hasn't quite gotten over high school, either. Written by Oscar winner Diablo Cody, directed by Oscar nominee Jason Reitman. See the first look photo right here. Paramount is bringing Young Adult to theaters starting December 9th limited, wide the 16th, this winter. Thoughts?
