Check Out This Fantastic Japanese Poster for Reitman's 'Young Adult'

This is what I'm talking about! I haven't much liked the official posters, even this one, for Jason Reitman's new film Young Adult, starring Charlize Theron (trailer) as a bitchy young adult novel writer who goes back to her hometown to find her high school sweetheart. The latest one released was just pitiful, so bad I didn't even want to post it, but now we've got something to redeem it. Found by IMPAwards is a Japanese poster for the film, and I love the design. Visually eye-catching, unique, captures the different shades of the character, this is the kind of poster I've wanted to see! Even better than those artistic posters. Check it out!
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 starting on December 9th limited, wide the 16th, this fall. Thoughts?
They must of used some serious photoshopping to make her look that young.

Not too shabby, I didn't like the previous poster either. Heard some good things about this movie so I can't wait to see what Reitman has in store for us.

Reminds me of Blink-182's video for 'Always'. I like it 🙂 Charlize Theron looks great!

Looks cool. That look on her face. Ugh. Reminds me of some of the snotty girls in high school. Most of those girls had kids and look dead eyed now. Some of them have great careers and personalities to go with it. One of them got a boob job, moved to California and calls everyone losers on Facebook. She's the one we make fun of now. Ironic. God, I need to lay off the rum before writing this shit.

Nah, that was cool. Keep the rum flowing.

Helllooo kitty indeed. I thought it was another Heigl comedy-disaster too. This movie sounds like another chick flick not so long ago with a similar scenario.

This reminds me a lot of Bad Teacher.

The tag line (upper right) on this poster means "You can't laugh me at all." That says all about the movie, I guess?
