Poster for Jason Reitman's 'Men, Women & Children'

Ugh, a little ugly if you ask me

Paramount premiered what I consider a rather ugly poster for Jason Reitman's Men, Women & Children, which is premiering here at the Toronto Film Festival. I'll actually be seeing it tomorrow night and as much as this poster does nothing for me I'm actually getting a little excited to check this one out, hoping it's a big step up from the awful Labor Day.

The film is based on the novel by Chad Kultgen and explores the sexual pressures of junior high school students and their parents navigating the internet's shared landscape of pornography, blogs, social networking and its promise of opportunities, escapes, reinvented identities, and unexpected conflicts.

The ensemble cast includes Kaitlyn Dever, Rosemarie DeWitt, Ansel Elgort, Jennifer Garner, Judy Greer, Dean Norris and Adam Sandler and it will be hitting limited theaters on October 1, expanding in the weeks following.

Check out the poster below.

    I actually like how it looks. At least it's more original than most posters nowadays.

      Emma Thompson was talking about this last Oscar season. She seemed genuinely excited, and she usually has good taste, so I'm cautiously optimistic.

    Reitman is in sketchy territory now. It's ok for directors to have lulls and all but Labor Day?! It felt like some true colors shining through. If this isn't a knock out, it'll be hard for me to really look forward to anything of his going forward.

      He's made one shitty movie in Labor Day...

    I'm sorry but this poster is one of the very best that I've seen in years. Can not wait for this film. This could end up being my favorite film of the year. Either this, Palo Alto(Which is currently my favorite), Birdman, Whiplash, Inherent Vice, The Interview, Foxcatcher, Selma etc.

    It's a little on the ugly side, but WAY on the awesome and unique side.

      What does that mean?

    As I mentioned over on Letterboxd when I published my preliminary Oscar predictions, I have a feeling that this could be a big sleeper in the BP race -- if of course it is more Juno/Up In The Air than Labor Day. For whatever reason, I watched the teaser, and it was good.

    I didn't think Labor Day, outside of Winslet and Brolin's performances, was any good but this sounds much more in the vein of Reitman's previous movies, all of which I enjoyed. I have high hopes for this one.

    Oh, and the poster is terrific.

    It isn't a poster I would hang on my wall, but it is a nice turn away from typical designs. It's very distinctive

    I quite like it, the style reminds me of the safety brochures you get in planes.

    I actually sort of like that poster. Reminds me of old book covers. Then again I'm also kind of expecting at this point not to loathe 'Labor Day' either.

    Terrible poster, but a great tagline.
