Usually, we like to preface our trailer posts with a little bit about the movie, a synopsis or maybe a few interesting tidbits about the cast and crew, some sort of hook to get you interested in seeing the movie. All you need to know about Up In The Air
is that it’s written and directed by Jason Reitman, the director of Thank You For Smoking
, and that it stars George Clooney, Vera Farmiga, Anna Kendrick, Jason Bateman, and J.K. Simmons. With such a talented group behind the movie, that should be more than enough. If it isn’t, just watch the trailer below.
Aw geez, I can’t help myself – here goes: I think Up In The Air is going to be one of the special ones, a movie that comes along every few years that quietly blows people away. These movies, they’re never too showy about it; they just sort of appear and surprise audiences with a truly engaging story. We’ve seen a teaser for this already, and now Apple has released the full theatrical trailer. It seems to reveal more of what we here at c,vt have long suspected: that this film – one that Reitman has said could be his most personal ever – is going to amaze.
I’m not saying this because it’s a particularly bold or original statement. There’s been a lot of positive buzz coming out of festivals and I know I’m not the first to proclaim this thought. I’ve just got a good feeling about this one. I’m excited, and I hope you are too. Catch the trailer after the jump.
