First Young Adult Trailer Shows Charlize Theron Behaving Badly
Posted 10.07.11 by Ryan
The first poster for Paramount Pictures' upcoming comedy Young Adult was released last month, and, as predicted, the first trailer has arrived a month later via Slashfilm.
Like some of the more successful comedies of the summer (Bad Teacher or Bridesmaids) Young Adult is a movie about a questionably moral person engaging in questionably moral activity, only, in this case, the lead character is one whose lack of morals aren't really in question. More is explained in the movie's official synopsis.
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.
Young Adult reunites screenwriter Diablo Cody with Juno director Jason Reitman, and, from the looks of the trailer, it's going to try to make audiences laugh and maybe learn something about ourselves as well.
