If you ask me Up in the Air looks really good. George Clooney plays a man whose job involves flying all over the country to fire people. As he approaches his one-millionth frequent flyer mile he begins to question his way of life. By itself that plot doesn’t sound that interesting, but factor in Clooney as the star and Jason Reitmen, whose last film was Juno, directing, the total package could be great. I’m not alone in my anticipation either. The National Board of Review just named it the Best Film of 2009, and it’s already starting to get Oscar buzz.
Check out the latest trailer for the film, and let me know what you think:
Up in the Air opens is out in limited release now, but comes to theaters everywhere on Christmas Day.
