UPDATE: I’ve added a second, “alternate” trailer for Young Adult courtesy of Slashfilm.

As far as I can tell this was the awards season film we had yet to see a trailer for as Paramount has debuted the first trailer for Jason Reitman‘s Young Adult, his latest collaboration with Juno screenwriter Diablo Cody starring Charlize Theron as Mavis Gary, a writer of teen literature who returns to her small hometown to relive her glory days and attempt to reclaim her happily married high school sweetheart (Patrick Wilson). When returning home proves more difficult than she thought, Mavis forms an unusual bond with a former classmate (Patton Oswalt) who hasn’t quite gotten over high school, either.

Check out the trailer directly below and leave your thoughts in the comments. I don’t have this one ranked very high in my Best Picture predictions and I don’t even have Theron in my top five Best Actress predictions. Should that change based on what you see here?

Young Adult hits theaters on December 9. You can watch the trailer in high definition right here.
