Young Adult

She's on the loose! Since Jason Reitman's Young Adult is skipping the film festival circuit, Paramount has decided to start building some buzz the old fashion way - grass roots secret screenings popping up all over! They've started a tour to various cities and are hosting unannounced secret screenings. The first one was at the TIFF Lightbox a few weeks ago, where they handed out a poster designed by Lil Tuffy. From there they also stopped by Chicago, Minneapolis and most recently Austin, where three more unique posters were unveiled. Each screening gets its own art and thanks to our friends at SlashFilm we can see all four so far.

Here's a collection of all of the designs revealed so far, with the city and artist/designer name listed for each one. Click the poster to be taken back to the source to find a full-size version of each poster. That one on the lower right is just crazy, it's kind of what makes me a bit iffy about this film. Other than that, my favorite is the Minneapolis one, it just sums up the setup of the movie perfectly and captures the seemingly domestic (a Hampton Inn?!) nature of it. Young Adult stars Charlize Theron as "young adult" author Mavis Gary.

Which one of the Young Adult posters revealed so far is your favorite? You can watch the first official trailer for Young Adult here. Reitman and Paramount have enlisted LA's famous pop culture gallery Gallery1988 to pick the artists and produce limited edition pieces of art for these surprise screenings. We're not sure how many are left or how to get into one, but keep your ears open around your local area and around on Twitter.

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. Watch the first official trailer here. Paramount is bringing Young Adult to theaters on December 9th limited, then wide the 16th. Anyone see a screening?

I went to the chicago screening and the poster is hanging next to me in my room right now! the film was wonderful and they even had Jason Ritemen Diablo Cody and Patton Oswalt speak at a Q&A! The film was another big hit for jason ritemen it was equally emotional and impactful as it was hilarious and its one of the must sees for this year!
