Up in the Air - Anna Kendrick and George Clooney

Check out the first feature length trailer for Up in the Air a new film by Director Jason Reitman, starring George Clooney, alongside Vera Farmiga, Anna Kendrick, Jason Bateman, Danny McBride, and Zach Galifianakis. Although the film sounds like it could be a laugh out loud comedy, it looks more along the lines of Garden State or Reitman’s last film Juno; more of a subtle comedy with real life, albeit odd people.

However you want to classify it, the new trailer looks amazing, check it out below…

Yet again they tease Clooney about his age, which seems to be the thing to do in films. Even though he is one of the sexiest men alive, that old soul persona mixed with gray hair makes it easy to jump to conclusions. And finally we get to see Galifianakis up to no good, I’m still interested to see how or even if McBride shows up in the film.

For some reason they seem to be having some trouble getting this film into theaters. Originally it was scheduled for a limited release on November 13, 2009 and expanding on November 25, 2009, but now it’s been pushed and will be released as follows:

  • December 4, 2009 limited
  • December 11, 2009 expansion
  • December 25, 2009 wide

I doubt this has anything to do with the quality of the film. More than likely it’s just a hard film to get into theaters because even though it has big names, it’s not an easy sell. Plus, Clooney already has Men Who Stare At Goats coming out on November 6th and The Fantastic Mr. Fox coming out on Novemer 13th, so perhaps they were afraid that they were over Clooney-ing us?
