Jason Reitman’s MEN, WOMEN & CHILDREN Poster Reminds Us That Studio Poster Art Isn’t Entirely Dead

     September 3, 2014


Ahead of the film’s world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival later this week, Paramount Pictures has released the first Men, Women & Children poster and it’s kind of fantastic.  Up in the Air and Juno director Jason Reitman’s new film looks to be an incredibly dark departure for the filmmaker, as it follows the story of a group of high schoolers and their parents as they attempt to navigate the many ways the internet has changed their relationships, communication, self-image, and their love lives.  Aside from the wonderful folks at Mondo, the world of official movie poster art has been frustratingly dull over the past decade or so.  Thankfully, Reitman understands that the one-sheet can be an extension of the film’s creative expression itself, giving us this beautiful and slightly haunting Men, Women & Children poster.  More of this, please.

Hit the jump to take a look at the Men, Women & Children poster in full, and check back for Matt’s review of the film itself from TIFF later this week.  The pic stars Ansel Elgort, Kaitlyn Dever, Jennifer Garner, Adam SandlerRosemarie DeWittJudy GreerDean NorrisJ.K. SimmonsTimothée ChalametOlivia Crocicchia and Emma Thompson.  Men, Women & Children opens in limited release on October 1st and expands wide on October 17th.

Here’s the official synopsis for Men, Women & Children:

MEN, WOMEN & CHILDREN follows 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. The film attempts to stare down social issues such as video game culture, anorexia, infidelity, fame hunting, and the proliferation of illicit material on the internet. As each character and each relationship is tested, we are shown the variety of roads people choose – some tragic, some hopeful – as it becomes clear that no one is immune to this enormous social change that has come through our phones, our tablets, and our computers.

  • Mixed race rich kid NYC

    Is the movie silent?
    Also has Jason Reitman ever directed an original screenplay
    He’s always adapting books

    • Paladinus McLachlan

      And what’s the matter about adapting screenplays?

    • Vulcan

      I don’t think it’s silent, and I never got that impression. Juno and Young Adult weren’t based on books. There’s nothing wrong with adapting books, as long as it’s done true to the book.

      • Mixed race rich kid NYC

        They weren’t?
        Yeah for some reasons I thought Juno and Young Adult were young adult books by Diablo Cody
        Don’t know why

      • Vulcan

        Nope, she won Best Original Screenplay for Juno. The only book she wrote that I know of, is her memoirs.

      • Jeremy Flores

        probably because you’re a mixed race rich kid from the big apple.


    Jason Reitman’s MEN, WOMEN & CHILDREN Poster Reminds Us Exactly Why Studio Poster Art Is Dead.

    • Vulcan

      Yes, this is a beautiful poster.

  • varagor

    If the movie’s argument about technology is as simplistic as shown in this poster, It’s not going to be a very good movie.

    • Neven

      Yes, because two hours of film is something you can compare to and judge by a poster.

  • Strong Enough

    “from the director of juno and up in the air”

    oh my god. we fucking get it already
