Paramount will pop Jason Reitman‘s Men, Women & Children limited on 10.3 or about…what, three weeks after it plays at the Toronto Film Festival? Wide break on 10.17. The news was broken by In Contention‘s Kris Tapley. Teens, oddball parents, infidelity, online porn, icky impulses, maybe a stray predator or two. Directed, produced by Reitman. Based on a darkish book by the somewhat libidinal-minded Chad Kultgen. Cowritten by Reitman and Erin Cressida Wilson. Adam Sandler, Rosemarie DeWitt, Ansel Elgort, Jennifer Garner, Judy Greer, J.K. Simmons, Dennis Haysbert. I’ll be watching for comparisons to Henry Alex Rubin‘s Disconnect, which dealt with similar material.
The trailer pops tomorrow but where’s the poster? Where are the stills?
IMDB plant review: “I recently attended a screening for Men, Women & Children and I was impressed at how well put together the film is. The performances were all fantastic, and the music and atmosphere blended in nicely. The movie itself is very ‘true to life’ and I’m sure many folks would relate to the situations that take place. Sandler gave one of his greatest performances. Reitman was in attendance at the screening. Great acting, great story, nicely directed.”
