That first trailer for Up in the Air, the new George Clooney-starring film by director Jason Reitman, was kinda vague, but festival audiences kept singing the film’s praises, so I was on board. This new trailer shines a little more light on the affair and I’m left scratching my head and asking myself “This is the current Best Picture frontrunner??”
Not that it looks “bad” per se, but, to me at least, it doesn’t really look all that good. It looks kinda standard and obvious and like it’s trying to juggle way too much at once. Of course, I can’t judge until I’ve actually seen the movie, but this thing doesn’t really do much for my expectations.
What about the rest of you? Am I way off? Give it a watch right below and let me know.
