Jason Reitman's Up in the Air just screened at the Telluride Film Festival and early word on the film going in was that it was a terrific, pitch-perfect comedy and Reitman's (Juno, Thank You For Smoking) best. Well, Incontention's Kris Tapley just tapped out a quick praise of the film, calling it a "four-star knockout" and Reitman's most personal work to date.
The comedy about a corporate downsizing expert whose profession and way of life is threatened by new-age technology stars George Clooney, Vera Farmiga, Anna Kendrick and Jason Bateman.
/Film is also now reporting that Up In the Air has a 12.04.09 release date. Remember that Paramount is distributing the film domestically and that their impending release of the Reitman comedy was thought to have influenced heavily on their decision to delay Martin Scorsese's Shutter Island to February 2010.
