Being bad seems to be a good fit for Charlize Theron. She got an Oscar for it thanks to her turn in "Monster," she looked impressive as the Evil Queen in the first trailer for "Snow White And The Huntsman" and her performance as the prickly Mavis Gary in Jason Reitman's "Young Adult" may have her headed back to the Kodak Theater in February.

Being bad seems to be a good fit for Charlize Theron. She got an Oscar for it thanks to her turn in "Monster," she looked impressive as the Evil Queen in the first trailer for "Snow White And The Huntsman" and her performance as the prickly Mavis Gary in Jason Reitman's "Young Adult" may have her headed back to the Kodak Theater in February.

Once again reteaming with “Juno” writer Diablo Cody, Reitman’s fourth feature co-stars Patrick Wilson and Patton Oswalt and follows the story of a divorced 30-something young-adult fiction writer (Theron) who returns to her Minnesota home to chase after her now-married-with-kids ex-boyfriend (Wilson). The film has been earning strong buzz on the back of pop-up screenings that have been taking place around the country, with a variety of unique promotional posters helping to keep the chatter going. This latest clip is a nice peek at Mavis, who even when just trying to book a hotel room, turns it into a confrontation.

"Young Adult" will head to theaters on December 16th. Watch below. Update: MTV also have a new clip from the film which you can watch below. [ComingSoon]
