New Poster and Three Preview Clips for Young Adult Starring Charlize Theron
11.15.11 by Ryan
A new poster and three preview clips have arrived online for the upcoming dark comedy Young Adult, from the writer-director team of Juno, Diablo Cody and Jason Reitman.
Young Adult stars Academy Award winner Charlize Theron (Monster) as the extremely unlikeable, teen fiction writer Mavis Gary, who returns to her hometown to reclaim her now happily married high school boyfriend (Patrick Wilson).
Already receiving Oscar buzz, the three clips from Young Adult show that the success or failure of the movie and its possible nominations rests on how audiences embrace Theron's Mavis, described as "the girl you hated in high school."
The first clip from PerezHilton (via SlashFilm) shows Mavis giving attitude to a hotel clerk, in a scene that appears in abbreviated form in the movie's first trailer.
The Playlist revealed the second clip, which shows Mavis running into a former high school classmate (Patton Oswalt), whom she can't remember.
In the last clip, released by Moviefone, Mavis looks for something to wear that will make her former boyfriend's wife jealous.
