Charlize Theron glares in latest “Young Adult” poster – AWARDS ALLEY
By Sean O’Connell
hollywoodnews.com: Any time you’re able to make Charlize Theron look marginally ugly, it’s newsworthy. In fact, the last time she attempted it, she won the Academy Award for the hideous transformation in the serial-killer drama “Monster.”
Theron’s character doesn’t murder anyone in “Young Adult” (at least, I don’t think so), but she gives a glare that positively kills on the film’s new poster, which Paramount just put out (via InContention). We have it below.
The studio has been making the rounds with the picture, which reunites director Jason Reitman with his “Juno” screenwriter, Oscar winner Diablo Cody. It stars Theron as a self-centered princess who heads back to her small home town to win back her ex, even though he’s married with a child.
The story swirling out of the “Young Adult” screenings is that co-star Patton Oswalt delivers a jaw-dropping performance that completely goes against type. I see the film this weekend in New York City, and will be bringing you interviews with the entire cast and crew.
In the meantime, here’s the poster. “Young Adult” will be in theaters on Dec. 9, expanding to more theaters on Dec. 16. Bring baggage.
