I’ve heard literally nothing of this film up until the teaser trailer was released on Wednesday. It was apparently a big hit at the Telluride Film Festival and is set to make the rounds in the festival circuit until it’s December 4th 2009 release date.
Up In The Air is the new film from Jason Reitman, the director of Juno and the highly underrated Thank You For Smoking. It stars George Clooney as Ryan Bingham, “a corporate downsizing expert whose cherished life on the road is threatened just as he is on the cusp of reaching ten million frequent flyer miles and just after he’s met the frequent-traveler woman of his dreams.”
George Clooney appears to be on a roll with a number of really good films under his belt recently and his latest, Men Who Stare At Goats, looks extremely promising. This teaser has definitely peaked my interest in Up In The Air so it has managed to make it on my “must see for 2009” list. Check out the teaser below.
