We've seen Charlize Theron play everything from a rough-looking serial killer to the commander of a tribe of post-apocalyptic warriors to a badass secret agent. The film looks like it's comfortable just being a character-centric story that goes for full honesty on how hard motherhood is, especially in this day and age.
After a few missteps with Men, Women and Children (which I really liked) and Labor Day (which sadly was overshadowed in "best use of a pie" by both American Pie and A Ghost Story), Reitman has reteamed with Cody and Theron for Tully, a film about a bad mother who requires some added help with her kids.
Nonetheless, she also continues to be one of Hollywood's most versatile actresses, and the Oscar victor will be getting back to more dramatic material - albeit with a definite comedic edge - this April, when she stars in Tully, a saga about motherhood that's just released its tantalizing first teaser.
Watch the trailer for the movie below!
Hopefully, this doesn't take the predictable indie movie turn where Tully becomes the object of affection for Marlo's husband, thereby creating problems in the relationship while also bringing out realizations about life for our main characters. That prompts her brother, played by Mark Duplass, to hire a night nanny, who arrives at her door in the form of Mackenzie Davis.
Hey, remember 10 years ago (yes, yikes, you're old, et cetera) when everybody and their mom loved Juno and it seemed certain that screenwriter Diablo Cody and director Jason Reitman would go on to great things?
