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 »

Michael Cera, Kieran Culkin Debut On Broadway; Off-Broadway ‘Booty’ Star Is Born

11 September 2014 6:00 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

No play ever celebrated arrested development quite so amusingly as Kenneth Lonergan’s This Is Our Youth, a shambling off-Broadway hit from 1996 now revived starring Michael Cera, Kieran Culkin and an ingenue named Tavi Gavinson, all making their Broadway debuts. The production is the latest transfer by Chicago’s Steppenwolf Theatre, and as staged by Anna D. Shapiro, it’s typical of that celebrated troupe in its physicality combined with thoughtfulness.

The time is the 1980s and the setting is the apartment of Dennis (Culkin), who passes the time selling weed and coke while waiting for his life to happen. When his equally vacant but much milder friend Warren (Cera, of Juno and Arrested Development) shows up with $15,000 stolen from his possibly mobbed-up father, the boys consider several options: using the money to score a major drug deal and make even more money; return it before Warren’s father discovers »

Jason Reitman Explains Why Labor Day Failed

11 September 2014 6:01 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Jason Reitman has had a remarkable career. Since making his feature directorial debut in 2005 with the dark comedy Thank You For Smoking, this gifted writer-director has earned four Academy Award nominations, including a Best Picture nod for his 2010 effort Up In The Air. After a hot streak of hits and critical praise that also included Juno and Young Adult, Reitman's reputation took a serious hit with the lackluster 2013 drama Labor Day. And he knows exactly why. While at the Toronto International Film Festival for the world premiere of his latest film Men, Women & Children, Jason Reitman sat down with Screen Crush. Amid talk of his new movie, they touched on his biggest failure. Reitman confessed that seeing Labor Day crash and burn with critics was "shitty as hell," adding "I was proud of my Tomato Rating." After some serious thought, Reitman believes he knows what went wrong with Labor Day. »

New Posters (Now With Less Floating Heads)

10 September 2014 6:44 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Manuel here to whet everyone's appetites with some recently released posters.

Fall movie season can sometimes feel much more thrilling for the way it builds anticipation than for what it actually delivers. Every year we can count on plenty of films to entertain, amaze, and awe us, but I'd wager that that number is usually lower than the number of films you were looking forward to. This is partly a math game and partly an acknowledgement of how PR and marketing savvy distributors (both big and small) have become. 

Take, for example these new posters for, respectively, Jason Reitman's Men, Women & Children (as divisive after its premiere in Toronto as the film's trailer proved here), Justin Simien's Sundance sensation Dear White People, and Jon Stewart's first feature film Rosewater. I have to admit I love these posters not only because they aren't full of floating heads or beautifully lit silhouettes, »

Reitman Calls His "Labor Day" Misguided

9 September 2014 3:43 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Even the best filmmakers have the odd dud, and beloved director Jason Reitman has been refreshingly frank about one of his films that didn't catch on.

Following gushing praise for "Juno" and "Up In The Air," Reitman's "Young Adult" flopped but still earned some critical praise. It was the film after that though, the Josh Brolin and Kate Winslet-led "Labor Day," that failed to find attention and interest from both audiences and critics.

Appearing at the Toronto Film Festival to promote his new film "Men, Women & Children," Reitman talked with Screen Crush and the conversation turned towards public perception of actors (specifically Adam Sandler) "phoning in" performances. He equates that perception with the reaction to "Labor Day":

"It's a misnomer to think that from within he is losing interest or gaining interest. You're always trying. And I say that sensitively, because I can imagine someone looking at 'Labor Day' and going, »

Jason Reitman admits his mistakes with Labor Day; defends Adam Sandler

9 September 2014 7:38 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Jason Reitman was on quite the winning streak for a while From his feature debut Thank You For Smoking through Juno, Up In The Air, and Young Adult, Reitman was garnering equal parts critical acclaim and praise from audiences. Then, he made Labor Day. Starring Josh Brolin and Kate Winslet, Labor Day seemed like a slam dunk for the son of legendary director Ivan Reitman. But, not only did it bomb with audiences but critics were left cold. Now, Jason Reitman has put together Men, Women, »

Jason Reitman Calls ‘Labor Day’ "A Misguided Effort"

9 September 2014 6:45 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Three years ago, you could have forgiven Jason Reitman for having an invincible self-image. His first four features all garnered a degree of critical praise, and “Juno” and “Up In The Air” each got a handful of Oscar nods. Even “Young Adult,” which flopped at the box office, was well regarded —the type of film his loyalists could appreciate as part of his wry and stylish repertoire and critics could hail as emotionally honest and fresh. Then came the bizarrely contrived and un-self-aware “Labor Day,” in which Josh Brolin played an escaped convict who coerces/romances Kate Winslet, and the support that had come so easily to Reitman suddenly disappeared. And the filmmaker says not only that he was stung by the reaction to his last picture, but also that he now finds it "misguided." The admission comes at a point in an interview when the director is defending Adam Sandler against accusations of laziness. »

Will Tiff hit 'Men, Women and Children' bring Jason Reitman back to Oscars?

8 September 2014 5:08 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Jason Reitman has brought all six of his films to the Toronto film festival. The first, "Thank You For Smoking," put him on Hollywood's radar while the next two -- "Juno" and "Up in the Air" -- reaped multiple Oscar bids, including for Reitman. However, his most recent pair, "Young Adult" and "Labor Day," which showcased Oscar champs Charlize Theron and Kate Winslet respectively, underperformed.  He returns to form this year with "Men, Women and Children," an exceptionally strong ensemble film that explores the ways and means by which social media isolates us all. Reitman co-adapted Chad Kultgen's 2011 bestseller with Erin Cressida Wilson ("Secretary"). They have fashioned a story which gives equal play to both the fortysomething parents and the teenagers as they struggle to connect with each other.  -Break- Reitman takes his time to lay out the storylines: a coupl »

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: Reitman’s Back in Form–and Awards Contention–with ‘Men, Women & Children’

7 September 2014 4:05 PM, PDT | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Scott Feinberg

The Hollywood Reporter 

The Canadian writer-director Jason Reitman‘s career exploded with his first three feature films, Thank You for Smoking (2005), Juno (2007) and Up in the Air (2009), the latter two of which received best picture Oscar nominations and garnered him best director noms, as well. (He was also nominated for co-adapting Up in the Air‘s screenplay) The two films with which he followed those, however, Young Adult (2011) and Labor Day (2013), proved much more divisive, and led some to wonder if the filmmaker had lost his way.

Now, though, with his sixth feature — Men, Women & Children, which had its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival’s Ryerson Theatre at 6pm on Saturday, just like all of his others except Young Adult, which skipped the festival circuit — I am pleased to report that Reitman has recaptured the formula that endeared him to critics, audiences and the »

Men, Women & Children | 2014 Tiff Review

7 September 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

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 »

Jason Reitman's ‘Men, Women and Children’ – Human Problems Minus Real, Live Humans

6 September 2014 10:51 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Jason Reitman is a writer-director whose voice emerged young – in his early 20s – brash, intelligent, the bleeding edge of his generation. With “Thank You For Smoking” followed by “Juno,” Reitman established himself as that rare talent who could translate authentic human experience into biting satire with an undercurrent of empathy. You laughed and you cried at his movies, sometimes simultaneously. The movies had political themes (smoking, teen pregnancy), but they embraced them lightly. See Photos: Toronto Party Report in Pictures: Kristen Bell, Al Pacino, and ‘Ironman’ Twins (Photos) As his film career has progressed, Reitman's voice has settled into something. »

Sandler Confirms: Ansel Elgort Is Wicked Hot

6 September 2014 7:35 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The crowd outside the world premiere “Men, Women & Children” at the Toronto Film Festival on Saturday was overrun with tween girls who shrieked, hyperventilated and begged Ansel Elgort for autographs.

Fresh from the success of “The Fault in Our Stars,” the doe-eyed heartthrob received the kind of welcome that would be all too familiar to Robert Pattinson. Elgort appeared to be too busy catering to his lustful fans to talk to print media, but co-star Adam Sandler made it clear he’s not the jealous type.

“I’ll give it all to Ansel,” Sandler said. “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.”

Toronto 2014 Review: Jason Reitman Weaves An Ambitious, Enjoyable Tapestry In Men, Women & Children

6 September 2014 6:05 PM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Jason Reitman is having an identity crisis. As one of the most prolific voices in his generation of filmmakers, Reitman has been a model of consistency, pumping out smart and snarky dramedies every two years from Thank You For Smoking to Young Adult (with Juno and Up in the Air in the middle, for those keeping score). Then came Labor Day, a nostalgic drama that felt like a real diversion for the director, and was widely seen as a misfire. Now Reitman is back only one year later instead of his customary two with Men, Women & Children. And while the film stars Adam Sandler, it again eschews the comedic current of his previous films for more of a social commentary on life in white...

5 September 2014 3:33 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

This weekend marks the limited and VOD release of God Help the Girl, a musical from Stuart Murdoch, best known as the lead singer of Belle and SebastianGod Help the Girl, which emerged out of a musical side project for Murdoch, follows three friends who start a band during a summer in Glasgow. It has, yes, been described as “twee,” a word now practically synonymous with Belle and Sebastian.

Belle and Sebastian’s music—cheery melodies paired with vivid, often melancholy lyrics—often feels cinematic, thanks to the band’s knack for weaving intricate mini-stories. In that way, it »

First poster for Jason Reitman’s Men, Women & Children

5 September 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

To coincide with its premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, Paramount Pictures has dropped the first poster for Jason Reitman’s (Juno, Up in the Air) latest film Men, Women & Children, which we have for you here…

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, our tablets, and our computers.
