Jennifer Garner and the cast of Men, Women & Children

4 hours ago | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Jason Reitman’s latest film is a conversation starter.  A mirror to our time, Men, Women & Children takes a look at how our technological connections make us disconnect from one another and how we look at friendship and intimacy in a socially connected world.  Sounds like serious stuff?  Not quite.  The film picks up Reitman’s standard dramatic-meets-comedic tones and features an ensemble cast that includes Jennifer GarnerAdam Sandler, Rosemarie DeWittAnsel Elgort, and Kaitlyn Dever.

Men, Women & Children takes an intimate look at sexual frustrations that everyone – from teenagers exploring their sexual nature for the first time to the adult world of covert affairs and secret desires.

Cineplex sat down with Jennifer Garner, Adam Sandler, Rosemarie DeWitt, Ansel Elgort, and Kaitlyn Dever to talk technology, parental guidance, and trust.

Men, Women & Children Review

13 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

[This is a re-post of my review from the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival.  Men, Women & Children opens today in limited release.] It’s comforting to view the Internet as a force. Things existed one way, the Internet came along, completely changed everything, and now—for better or worse—those things are barely recognizable. We’re all looking down, clacking into our smart phones, so the Internet must have transformed us, right? It’s just so powerful, and we were caught in its wake. Current communication technology has changed us, but Jason Reitman’s Men, Women & Children wryly, wisely, and astutely observes our fears and insecurities long preceded our smartphones. The film is a sharp commentary on the decay of intimacy as we, isolated in the cosmos, have now become isolated from each other. Woven together with well-crafted storylines, sharp performances, and convincing drama, Reitman’s latest film mostly avoids being a cautionary tale and instead provides an insightful look on how online communication changes our relationships but doesn’t define our lives. »

Win Tickets To The Advance Screening of Kill The Messenger in St. Louis

17 hours ago | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Two-time Academy Award nominee Jeremy Renner (“The Bourne Legacy”) leads an all-star cast in a dramatic thriller based on the remarkable true story of Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Gary Webb. Webb stumbles onto a story which leads to the shady origins of the men who started the crack epidemic on the nation’s streets…and further alleges that the CIA was aware of major dealers who were smuggling cocaine into the U.S., and using the profits to arm rebels fighting in Nicaragua.

Despite warnings from drug kingpins and CIA operatives to stop his investigation, Webb keeps digging to uncover a conspiracy with explosive implications. His journey takes him from the prisons of California to the villages of Nicaragua to the highest corridors of power in Washington, D.C. – and draws the kind of attention that threatens not just his career, but his family and his life.

The Weekend Warrior: Gone Girl, Annabelle, Left Behind

30 September 2014 10:47 AM, PDT | Comingsoon.net | See recent Comingsoon.net news »

Go ahead and say it: "It's October already?" 2014 seems to be flying by and the fall movie season is already into its second month where we're likely to get a bunch of strong awards contenders going by previous years. In the past, October has also been a month where the box office would tend to slow down even more, or at least that used to be the case. Before 2000, not a single movie opened over $30 million and since 2010, we've had three movies open over $50 million. With that in mind, October is no longer the dumping ground it used to be, although six of the top 10 opening movies were sequels, something to bear in mind.

We don't have a sequel this weekend, as much as a spin-off movie from one of 2013's biggest hits, but we also have an adaptation of one of 2012's biggest bestselling novels. One's a horror movie »

Men, Women & Children | Review

I Tumblr For You; The Kids Aren’t Alright in Reitman’s Latest

Parents and their burgeoning teenagers battle their insecurities and repressed sexuality amidst ever present technology in an otherwise hushed community in a tightly woven all-American town. Sound familiar? On the surface, Jason Reitman’s latest effort Men, Women & Children is trying so very much to be American Beauty. There’s the hyper-sexualized cheerleaders, the stifled paternal figures and their mentally or morally absent partners, who all crash into their own devastating denouements. Unfortunately, despite his effort to create a modified updated retelling of Sam Mendes’ masterpiece for the plugged-in age, Reitman’s film is ersatz, and instantly forgotten.

Via Emma Thompson’s voiceover (which was used to far better effect in the underrated Stranger than Fiction), the audience is introduced to the close-knit residents of a Texan town. There’s the sexually frustrated married couple Don (Adam Sandler »

Film Review: ‘Kill the Messenger’

26 September 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Though he has four theatrical features under his belt, director Michael Cuesta is perhaps best known for his work on TV series “Homeland” and “Six Feet Under,” and perhaps the worst one can say about his new feature, “Kill the Messenger,” is that it sometimes plays like a condensed version of a first-rate cable miniseries. Based on the life of investigative reporter Gary Webb, who sparked firestorms with his writing on links between the CIA, Nicaraguan Contras and the American crack-cocaine trade only to have his career destroyed in the media blowback, the film taps into far deeper, richer veins of material than it has the time to properly mine. It’s nonetheless a flinty, brainy, continually engrossing work that straddles the lines between biopic, political thriller and journalistic cautionary tale, driven by Jeremy Renner’s most complete performance since “The Hurt Locker.” Specialty box office should be healthy; post-screening »

New Images From Men, Women & Children Showcase Stellar Cast

23 September 2014 7:50 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Jason Reitman has delivered some absolutely incredible films over the years, from Juno to Up in the Air, so it’s with great enthusiasm that we’re anticipating the arrival of his take on the Internet age, enigmatically titled Men, Women & Children. The cast is absolutely terrific, with an assortment of A-listers and red-hot up-and-comers, but the real cause for excitement is Reitman’s script, which looks to tell an ambitious story of how the connecting power of technology has rendered us more lonely than ever.

Early buzz about the film has been highly positive, with many applauding the dark tone and tense story. Particular praise has gone towards actors Adam Sandler, Rosemarie DeWitt, Ansel Elgort and Kaitlyn Dever, but the entire cast has been met with strong notices. Men, Women & Children also stars Dean NorrisJennifer Garner, Judy Greer, J.K. Simmons, Elena Kampouris, Timothée Chalamet, Olivia Crocicchia, Dennis Haysbert and Emma Thompson. »

New images from Jason Reitman’s Men, Women & Children

21 September 2014 12:47 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Hot off the heels of the new trailer release for Jason Reitman’s upcoming film Men, Women & Children, Paramount has released a new batch of images showing off the drama’s varied cast and even a few behind-the-scenes shots at Reitman himself. Check them out below, right after the synopsis.

Men, Women & Children follows the story of a group of high school teenagers and their parents as they attempt to navigate the many ways the internet has changed their relationships, their communication, their self-image, and their love lives. The film attempts to stare down social issues such as video game culture, anorexia, infidelity, fame hunting, and the proliferation of illicit material on the internet. As each character and each relationship is tested, we are shown the variety of roads people choose – some tragic, some hopeful – as it becomes clear that no one is immune to this enormous social change that has come through our phones, »

Meet the Characters of Jason Reitman’s Dark Ensemble in 17 New Men, Women & Children Images

19 September 2014 1:10 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Fresh off the full-length trailer debut, Paramount Pictures has released a large batch of new Men, Women & Children images from Up in the Air and Young Adult director Jason Reitman’s new film.  The drama follows the loosely connected stories of a group of teenagers and their parents as they attempt to navigate life in the digital age.  I saw the film at Tiff and thought it was excellent.  It’s an incredibly dark snapshot of humanity and the ways in which we interact with one another, and it marks a solid step forward in Reitman’s increasingly unpredictable filmography.  The story takes place in a Texas town, and the local high school is the link that connects the various storylines.  These new images reveal the cast of characters, including Ansel Elgort and Kaitlyn Dever’s young loners, Adam Sandler and Rosemarie DeWitt’s disillusioned married couple, and Dean Norris’ single father. »

Ansel Elgort is the glue holding new 'Men, Women & Children' trailer together

18 September 2014 7:47 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Similar to the first wave of Telluride reviews for "Labor Day," just a year ago, reactions sprouting out of the Toronto Film Festival for Jason Reitman's "Men, Women & Children" encompassed a full spectrum. Critical opinion from voices on the ground ranged from impressed praise to cries that the film was Doa. A new trailer for "Men ,Women & Children" cuts through the schizophrenic chatter. Whatever the finished product amounts to, Reitman's film is on the offensive against the zeitgeist, his notable cast keeping the intrigue spinning. Adam Sandler, Rosemarie DeWitt, Judy Greer, Dean Norris, Jennifer Garner, Dennis Haysbert, and J.K. Simmons all costar in the film, about a entangled suburb dealing with the 21st century's digital vices. "Fault in Our Stars" leading man Ansel Elgort, Olivia Crocicchia, and up-and-comer Kaitlyn Dever round out the cast, representing a younger generation more in tune with (or lost in?) the Internet age than any of the adults. »

Watch: Everyone's Disconnected In The New Trailer For Jason Reitman's 'Men, Women & Children'

17 September 2014 6:09 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Jason Reitman's got a new drama and it's called "Men, Women & Children." It's got a terrific ensemble cast in 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”). But reviews out of Toronto, where the film premiered, were decidedly mixed. One crowd found it to be a thoughtful and powerful look at the way the digital age brings us together while also dividing us. Another crowd described it as akin to "Crash" for the Internet (we mean the Paul Haggis version, not the Cronenberg version, which could be pretty awesome). Our reviewer in Toronto was decidedly in the latter camp. "Jason Reitman's film becomes the very thing it initially mocks, a 'Dateline'-esque ensemble piece about the dark consequences of logging on, that »

New Men, Women & Children Trailer Digs Deep Into the Darkness of Life in the Digital Age

17 September 2014 5:15 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Paramount Pictures has released a new Men, Women & Children trailer for director Jason Reitman’s (Up in the Air) excellent new drama.  The film follows the loosely connected stories of a group of teenagers and their parents as they attempt to navigate life in the digital age.  I caught the film at Tiff and found it to be a dark, complex, and emotional snapshot of humanity that also marks another bold step in Reitman’s diverse career.  You can’t say the Juno filmmaker isn’t making ambitious choices, and while some critics found the technology angle in Men, Women & Children to be contrived, I’d argue that the film really isn’t about the dangers of the internet at all—it’s about us.  Adam Sandler is fantastic in the most subdued performance of his career, Ansel Elgort (The Fault in Our Stars) and Kaitlyn Dever (Short Term 12 »

Felicity Jones: Oscar newbies hoping for a first citation this year

12 September 2014 1:54 PM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Much like I took a look yesterday at veterans in contention for Oscar love the year, today I’m going to be turning my attention to the newbies who hope to receive some awards love. As I mentioned in the last piece, this is leading up to me doing a re-ranking of the contenders in all of the major categories beginning next week, but right now it’s just going to be a preview of which rookies to the Oscar season are gearing up to hopefully make their big debuts on the awards circuit. Some are even in a position to win Academy Awards. First up is Best Actor. In this race, the highest profile would be first time nominee would be either Steve Carell for Foxcatcher or Michael Keaton for Birdman. They’ve been frontrunners to many for basically this entire season. A tiny level down are more recent »

HBO Miniseries Olive Kitteridge gets teaser trailer and a premiere date

9 September 2014 9:40 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The HBO miniseries adaptation of Elizabeth Strout’s novel, Olive Kitteridge, premiered recently at Venice Film Festival, where Frances McDormand was honored with a Visionary award.  The four part series stars Frances McDormand as the titular character and features an outstanding cast of Richard Jenkins, Bill Murray, Rosemarie DeWitt and Ann Dowd. The series is brought to screen by The Kids Are All Right director Lisa Cholodenko and tells the story of a cold abrasive Math teacher and her mild mannered husband as they live together in a sleepy coastal town in Maine.

The teaser trailer does not reveal too much about the actual plot of the miniseries but looks very promising with a gloomy yet hopeful tone featuring music performed by singer Martha Wainwright. Watch the teaser trailer below.

The first two parts of the miniseries will premiere on November 2nd 2014 to be followed the next night with the closing two installments, »

Ansel Elgort is the main attraction at 'Men, Women and Children' Toronto premiere

7 September 2014 5:38 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Sorry, Adam Sandler - Ansel Elgort is in vogue. The "Grownups" actor was arguably usurped by his "Men, Women and Children" co-star at the film's Toronto premiere on Saturday, with the "Fault in Our Stars" heartthrob winning loads of attention from a legion of young female fans who assembled to greet him (photos below). “I’ll give it all to Ansel,” Sandler told Variety on the red carpet. “I love that kid. He’s a sweet kid and it’s just a nice energy to be around. He wasn’t a superstar when we shot this movie but now he’s certainly having a good time.” Luckily for Elgort's admirers, the young actor stopped to interact and take pictures before heading into the venue for the screening of his latest film, a dramedy co-written and directed by Jason Reitman ("Juno," "Young Adult") that also stars Jennifer Garner, Rosemarie Dewitt, Judy Greer, »

Toronto Film Review: ‘Men, Women & Children’

6 September 2014 1:45 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“Troubled Teens & Clueless Parents” might have made a more honest title for Jason Reitman’s “Men, Women & Children,” a carefully diagrammed thesis movie about The Way We Live Now — specifically, how our attachments to the virtual world are destroying our relationships and turning us into a race of fame-obsessed, porn-addicted e-zombies. Unfolding as a series of loosely connected cautionary tales on the perils of excessive phone, Internet and social-media use, , like a less overblown version of “Crash” for the information superhighway. Relatability often being a more reliable conversation-starter than quality, the film’s universally applicable message, savvy packaging and excellent cast could inspire audiences to log on to the Oct. 17 Paramount release.

It’s one of the unintended ironies of Reitman and Erin Cressida Wilson’s script (adapted from Chad Kultgen’s novel of the same name) that their entirely plausible theory of contemporary American behavior — namely, that our various »
