Empire has released the first poster for Up in the Air, the next comedy from Thank You For Smoking and Juno director Jason Reitman. The film stars George Clooney as a corporate downsizing expert who travels all over the country looking for opportunities to relieve strangers of their jobs. And just as he’s about to hit the 10 million frequent flyer miles mark, he meets the woman of his dreams, a fellow frequent flyer played by Vera Farmiga. Now his cherished lifestyle is threatened as his company wants to move him to headquarters in Omaha, Nebraska.
You won’t get all of that from the poster, seen below. What you do get is a cleanly designed one-sheet that features Clooney, Farmiga and Anna Kendrick (Twilight) in an airport. What I get is a chance to talk about Jason Reitman, who can do no wrong in my mind — leading me to be front and center, waiting for this film to hit theaters.
Based on a novel by Walter Kim, Up in the Air will also star Jason Bateman, Danny McBride and Two and a Half Men’s Melanie Lynskey. It will debut at the Toronto film Festival in September and will likely hit theaters across the United States later in the fall. Have a look at the poster for yourself below.
Update: Our friends at /Film have posted the domestic one sheet this morning as well, which features the characters from a different angle. The folks at Empire seem to have removed their version, and the folks at Paramount asked us to do the same. Guess its hot stuff. Check it out below.
