Paramount has premiered the first trailer for Jason Reitman‘s Men, Women & Children, which will hit theaters on a limited basis on October 1 and expand a little on October 10 before going wide on October 17. The ensemble dramedy, co-owritten by Reitman along with Erin Cressida Wilson based on the novel by Chad Kultgen with a cast that includes Adam Sandler, Jennifer Garner, Rosemarie DeWitt, Judy Greer, Ansel Elgort, J.K. Simmons and Dennis Haysbert.

I’ll be seeing this one at the Toronto Film Festival, which is where I saw Reitman’s Labor Day last year and left with an extremely sour taste in my mouth. Here’s to hoping Men, Women and Children is a different story.
