Jason Reitman to direct adaptation of Kaui Hart Hemmings The Possibilities

Jason Reitman has made some interesting creative choices over the course of his career. I’ve enjoyed everything he’s done so far even the not so popular YOUNG ADULT. I thought it was a great movie with great performances—it was cringeworthy—but still good. His next, LABOR DAY an adaptation of a Joyce Maynard novel is set to release this Friday. Will it be the best to date? The...

Josh Brolin and Kate Winslet make love (and pie) in the new TV spot for Jason Reitman's Labor Day

Jason Reitman has turned in quite an impressive filmography so far with a mix of comedic dramas.

New stills from Machete Kills and Jason Reitman's Labor Day

Both of these films could classify as thrillers though they are much different in tone. New stills from MACHETE KILLS and Jason Reitman 's LABOR DAY certainly do a good job of showing this point. First up is MACHETE KILLS. I don't have to set this one up for you. If you've seen the first one along with the trailers then you know what you're in for. Sofia Vergara is lookin' pretty...
