Poster Debut: Young Adult

The poster for director Jason Reitman and screenwriter Diablo Cody’s latest collaboration – Young Adult – has debuted online (courtesy of THR). Their last effort – Juno – earned Cody an Academy Award, as well as Oscar nominations for Best Picture, Best Director and Best Actress (Ellen Page). Hopes are high for this one, then!

In Young Adult, Charlize Theron stars as Mavis Gary, an unsympathetic ghost writer who heads to her hometown to rediscover her identity, and in the process tries to steal her former high school boyfriend (Patrick Wilson) away from his happily married existence.

It’s hard not to love the semi-twisted Sweet Valley High vibe of the poster. (Fun Fact: Cody has written a script for a Sweet Valley High movie.)

Young Adult also stars Patton Oswalt. It arrives in U.S. cinemas late December, with an Australian release to follow in the new year. Reitman does not think you’ll like it very much.

Discuss: Nice to see a bit of a different poster, isn’t it? Not one floating head!
