After his over-exposure on the Up In The Air campaign trail -- as he emulated his own leading man's logging of air miles --and having lost the screenwriting Oscar to Precious's Geoffrey Fletcher, director Jason Reitman (and Paramount) have held off as long as they could before unveiling Young Adult, written by Juno's Diablo Cody.

But here is a peek at last, with Charlize Theron in a role already gaining Oscar buzz, sight unseen. Trailer and synopsis below:

Academy Award(R) winner Charlize Theron plays Mavis Gary, a writer of teen literature who returns to her small hometown to relive her glory days and attempt to reclaim her happily married high school sweetheart (Patrick Wilson). When returning home proves more difficult than she thought, Mavis forms an unusual bond with a former classmate (Patton Oswalt) who hasn’t quite gotten over high school, either.

    Didn't this already get made with Julia Roberts in 1997 (MY BEST FRIEND'S WEDDING)? And isn't Ms. Roberts, like, much funnier than Ms. Theron?

    Charlize Theron makes me question my sexuality. Patrick Wilson - not so much. Although I have reservations about Reitman (hated the ending of Up in the Air - completely unbelievable), I'm in.
