Watch: Teaser Trailer for Jason Reitman's 'Men, Women & Children'
"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?
