First poster for Jason Reitman's Young Adult is pretty in pink

Sep. 6, 2011by: Paul Tassi

People are complaining about this new poster for Jason Reitman's YOUNG ADULT because you can't see Charlize Theron and being passed out drunk isn't the most appealing pose for a star on a one-sheet, but I say screw that.

As someone who grew up with the Hardy Boys, the Boxcar Children and Bobbsey Twins and watched my sister read Nancy Drew, Sweet Valley High, and the Babysitter's Club, I say this is dead on. They're going for a very particular style to evoke those books, and I say it's a great design. What, did you want a giant Charlize Theron head with a quirky handwritten title font or something?

Reitman's film reteams with with scripter Diablo Cody, and the movie follows a teen lit writer who returns to her hometown in an attempt to relive her glory days.

Charlize Theron+Drunk+Jason Reitman= guaranteed movie ticket for me.

And I don't hate Diablo Cody. I loved Juno but hated Jennifer's Body. All I enjoyed from it was Seyfried's Needy character

Cool poster, I'm interested in seeing how the movie turns out. I thought Jennifer's Body was pretty mediocre, but I rewatch Juno often. It was a great movie.

That's a fantastic poster. It's doing what a poster should be doing. Giving you an idea of what the movie is about.
I'm looking forward to seeing this.

Really? How could anyone like Jennifer's Body? It's not good enough to be good, and it's not bad enough to be good. It's just blah. Really?

As somebody who follows Charlize's movie career, I was already going to see this.
But I'm not ashamed to say I'm really looking forward to this as I've read the script and it's Diablo Cody's most mature work to date. I liked Juno but this is a whole new ball game.
As for the poster itself - I think it's one of the best posters of 2011 so far. Great concept, fantastic execution.

I'll give the poster credit, certainly looks better than most of the current posters coming out these days, but I'll wait til I see a trailer. As for the tidbit, Jennifer's Body was a solid enough script, just would have benefitted for a more capable director. Cody doesn't bug me, I can think of worse writer's to hate on and that should be hated on, not sure why she's a target...

If it weren't for Reitman's involvement I would have no interest in this film. Other than that, the guy is a great director.

It's not just cool "these days" to hate Diablo Cody, it's always cool.
And for good reason.

A good reason being? The broad wins a Academy Award right out of the gate, so it's hip to hate her? Juno may have been hipstery for the sake of being hipstery, but, Oh I forgot, you confuse your smug cynicism with relevancy...

2 reasons why I can't take you seriously:

1. You think the Academy Awards are anything to go by. You probably also cheered when Martin Scorsese got the Shakespeare In Love bitch slap.

2. You like Diablo Cody.

One reason how you proved my point:

1.) Your previous response

Now let's put this past us and have our happy asses a drink!

If you're gonna ignore my point because you don't know how to respond just say "Well played." and get back to whatever you were doing.

I wouldn't venture to say well played. Closer to mediocre, but there's always next time.

This may be my new favorite poster of the year.

Also, regarding the Extra Tidbit, maybe I'm in a minority and maybe I'm not, but not only do I love Jennifer's Body, but I have a deep appreciation for Diablo Cody. When Juno came out, I'll admit I started getting really tired of all the overblown media bandwagon bullcrap that happens with most over-marketed movies, but now I can watch it and just really enjoy it.

I think, in about ten years, most of us will be looking back at Cody's earliest work as a freshly standalone and unique kind of

I think, in about ten years, most of us will be looking back at Cody's earliest work as a freshly standalone and unique kind of voice. Maybe her vernacular is a little too quirky for you or seems too forced, but I say if it's new and original and is, for better or worse, unique, then keep it coming.

I for one look forward to Cody's new projects, unashamedly.
