Director Jason Reitman was said to have taken his loss of an Oscar for Best Screenplay for “Up In The Air” pretty hard in 2010. Along with co-writer Sheldon Turner, he had won the WGA award, which is usually a good sign that the Oscar machine seemed would deliver similarly, but Geoffrey Fletcher won for “Precious." Reitman's “Young Adult” arrived the following year but proved too pitch-black for Oscar voters. And when Reitman stumbled a little bit with the tonally difficult “Labor Day” last year, the filmmaker shrugged it off and mounted a new film right away.

Men, Women & Children

Director Jason Reitman was said to have taken his loss of an Oscar for Best Screenplay for “Up In The Air”  pretty hard in 2010. Along with co-writer Sheldon Turner, he had won the WGA award, which is usually a good sign that the Oscar machine seemed would deliver similarly, but Geoffrey Fletcher won for “Precious." Reitman's “Young Adult” arrived the following year but proved too pitch-black for Oscar voters. And when Reitman stumbled a little bit with the tonally difficult “Labor Day” last year, the filmmaker shrugged it off and mounted a new film right away.

His latest “Men, Women & Children” is another dramedy and is bound for a premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival. Not a lot has been known about the movie apart from the fact that it’s a poignant look at the many ways that the internet has changed the relationships between teenagers and their parents. Today a new trailer has arrived, and it sheds a bit more light on the film's tone.

The movie stars Emma Thompson, Adam Sandler, Jennifer Garner, Judy Greer, Kaitlyn Dever (“Short Term 12,”) Rosemarie DeWitt, Ansel Elgort (“The Fault In Our Stars”) Dean Norris (“Breaking Bad”), J.K. Simmons, Dennis Haysbert and Elena Kampouris (“Labor Day”).

Co-written by Reitman and Erin Cressida Wilson (“Secretary”), “Men, Women & Children” runs 116 minutes and opens in limited release on October 3rd, before going wide on October 17th. Watch below.
