After the debut of that top notch Teaser Trailer, it seems like others are starting to realize that I might have been on to something when I said that Jason Reitman‘s new film Men, Women & Children could be a bigger contender than anticipated. I loved Chad Kultgen‘s book and the movie has the potential to be timely and really something special. Well, it seems like Paramount agrees, as they’ve given it a prime release date, with October 1st marking the limited debut, followed by an expansion on October 10th and then a wide release one week later on October 17th. You can see more below, but Men, Women & Children is co-written/directed by Reitman, with Adam Sandler, Rosemarie DeWitt, Emma Thompson, Jennifer Garner, Judy Greer, Kaitlyn Dever, Ansel Elgort and more in the cast. I can’t wait to see it…
Here’s the story from Variety:
Paramount has set Jason Reitman’s “Men, Women and Children” for an awards-season run and will open the drama-comedy Oct. 1.
The studio will expand the film on Oct. 10, followed by a wide release on Oct. 17.
“Men, Women and Children” will premiere at the Toronto Intl. Film Festival next month.
The film stars Adam Sandler, Rosemarie DeWitt, Emma Thompson, Jennifer Garner, Kaitlyn Dever, Ansel Elgort, Dean Norris, J.K. Simmons and Dennis Haysbert.
Reitman’s directing credits include “Up in the Air,” “Labor Day,” “Young Adult” and “Juno.” He co-wrote the script with Erin Cressida Wilson, based on the novel of same name by Chad Kultgen.
Paramount released the first trailer this week. It contains no dialogue, only text messages, to convey the film’s focus on how the internet has changed the way that parents and teenagers interact.
