Men, Women & Children Trailer

"U didn't tell anyone right?" Paramount has unveiled the first trailer for Jason Reitman's latest film, Men, Women & Children, following up his tender adaptation of Labor Day. This one is another adaptation, but he tells an ensemble story about how the internet and modern technology connects, and disconnects, us in today's world. It presents a very apt and poignant look at how everything from text messages to email to Snapchat to Facebook fuels social issues like "video game culture, anorexia, infidelity, fame hunting, and the proliferation of illicit material." The ensemble cast includes Ansel Elgort, Adam Sandler, Judy Greer, Jennifer Garner, Kaitlyn Dever, Dennis Haysbert, J.K. Simmons and Rosemarie DeWitt. Looks damn good.

Here's the first teaser trailer for Jason Reitman's Men, Women & Children, from Paramount's YouTube:

The original book "explores the sexual pressures at work on a handful of troubled, conflicted junior-high students and their equally dysfunctional parents," but Reitman has adapted it into 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. Men, Women & Children is directed by acclaimed filmmaker Jason Reitman, of the films Thank You for Smoking, Juno, Up in the Air, Young Adult and Labor Day previously. Reitman co-wrote the script with Erin Cressida Wilson. The film will premiere at TIFF, before Paramount releases in theaters later this year. Thoughts?

    Such a great little trailer. Speaks volumes without saying anything.

    fantastic book. hopefully this gets somebody the man up and adapt "The Lie".
      I didn't know about this being a book. Will definitely look into this.

        it's a great book. Chad Kultgen is very good at..."controversial" books. Men, Women, and Children is actually one of his more tame works but still pretty crazy in parts. excited to see it on screen. "The Lie" would be much harder to film, knowing how bat-shit insane it is.

    Amazing trailer and they did a really good job translating all the texting/messaging/online interactions to the screen.
  • Nielsen700
    Looks interesting. Don't want to see Reitman get stuck doing adaptations though.
  • ekoville

  • Tyler Morgan
    Chad Kultgen rules.
    Excellent. Reitman is a damn good director. He has really come unto his own. I will definitely check this out.

    Somehow, while watching the trailer, I kept thinking that a movie like this was bound to happen. 'The Social Network' and 'Her' already approached the social-media subject successfully, but weren't all too relatable regarding everyday internet use. This flick might be it, so I hope it won't be too self-righteous or too superficial, which admittedly is no easy task.

      Question I'd like to pose about The Social Network. In the beginning with Facesmash, they show everyone everywhere still being up at 4 a.m. on a Tuesday morning because of the website Mark Zuckerberg designed. How many people would be up that late like that?
