First Poster for Jason Reitman’s YOUNG ADULT Starring Charlize Theron [UPDATED]

by     Posted 2 years, 359 days ago


The first poster for Jason Reitman’s Young Adult has gone online and it’s pretty great.  The film centers on an alcoholic writer (Charlize Theron) who writes young adult novels (hence the design of the poster) and decides to return to her small town to pursue her high-school boyfriend (Patrick Wilson) who is now happily married with a young child.  This leads Theron’s character to another high-school classmate played by Patton Oswalt.  It’s a good cast, Reitman makes pretty good movies, and the script is from Diablo Cody.  Young Adult is being billed as a darker movie than Reitman’s previous work and it’s skipping the festival circuit in favor of a limited release on December 2nd and a wide release the following weekend.  However, because of the re-teaming of Reitman and Cody, the Juno comparison will be inevitable despite the drastically different story and tone.

Hit the jump to check out the poster. [Update: We have updated the poster with a hi-res version]


Here’s the official synopsis for Young Adult:

Academy Award® winner Charlize Theron plays Mavis Gary, a writer of 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 an unusual bond with a former classmate (Patton Oswalt) who hasn’t quite gotten over high school, either.

    I got a “bad teacher” feeling. Which is not a bad feeling just not the best feeling…

  • Devon

    This is nothing like ‘Bad Teacher.’ Trust me on that one. I’ve read the script and when people describe ‘Young Adult’ as a *dark* comedy, they aren’t kidding.

    And more relevant to the article… fantastic poster.

      I’d love to read the script. But I hope dark doesn’t envolve butchering the old classmates wife or anything…

      I guess we’re gonna have to wait and see…
