After the jump, I’ve got the trailer for Young Adult, the new film from Diablo Cody and Jason Reitman. A lot of people still like to sh*t on Diablo Cody, and I can kiiinda see why, but I thought her
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.
Lead talent upgrade notwithstanding, it kind of looks like a remake of Bad Teacher. Which is to say, I really hope Patton turns into a wizard at some point, because otherwise it looks like a whole lot of high school drama. And I get enough high school drama from the high school chicks I date.
I sometimes write Vin Diesel fan-fic under the name “Diablo Brody.”
