Charlize Theron Is A "Bad" Writer: Young Adult's Dueling Trailers

By Rob Payne | Trailers | October 7, 2011 | Comments ()

Honestly, there's a lot to like in both (if you don't mind watching mostly same thing twice in a row), and most of that probably has to do with the director, Jason Reitman. In only three movies (Thank You For Smoking, Juno, and Up in the Air) he's proven a gifted talent with a unique and engaging point of view. The fact that screenwriter Diablo Cody seems to have graduated from ultra clever dialogue is also a definite plus, though, in spite of the Oscar, I do think she's underrated. But the reasoning for these two, ahem, vastly not different trailers boggles the mind.

At least the movie's poster is pretty much perfect:


Young Adult opens in wide release on December 16th.

Rob Payne also writes the indie comic The Unstoppable Force, tweets on the Twitter @RobOfWar, and studied RTVF (radio, television, and film) in college. He likes to think of himself as the male Charlize Theron -- not necessarily from this movie, but generally speaking.
