Jason Reitman’s ‘Men, Women and Children’ Set for Awards Season Release

Paramount has set Jason Reitman’s “Men, Women and Children” for an awards-season run and will open the drama-comedy Oct. 1.

The studio will expand the film on Oct. 10, followed by a wide release on Oct. 17.

“Men, Women and Children” will premiere at the Toronto Intl. Film Festival next month.

The film stars Adam Sandler, Rosemarie DeWitt, Emma Thompson, Jennifer Garner, Kaitlyn Dever, Ansel Elgort, Dean Norris, J.K. Simmons and Dennis Haysbert.

Reitman’s directing credits include “Up in the Air,” “Labor Day,” “Young Adult” and “Juno.” He co-wrote the script with Erin Cressida Wilson, based on the novel of same name by Chad Kultgen.

Paramount released the first trailer this week. It contains no dialogue, only text messages, to convey the film’s focus on how the internet has changed the way that parents and teenagers interact.

Jennifer Garner’s Touching Story of Remembering Children Others Forgot

Who: Jennifer Ganer, Board Member, Save the Children

Day Job: Actress.

Backstory: As a first-grader in West Virginia, Jennifer Garner was friends with a set of twins who came from a poor family. “When I went to second grade, they stayed in first grade, and when I went to fourth grade, they disappeared,” says the 42-year-old. “I just kept thinking, What happened to those kids?”

Driving Force: Rural poverty is an issue that doesn’t get much play on the gala circuit, but that’s what makes her devotion to the issue so remarkable. “Once you become a mom, you realize that everyone loves their children the same amount,” says Garner, who is featured in the forthcoming PBS documentary series A Path Appears. “So if these moms in Arkansas or Mississippi love their kids as much as I love my kids, how is it fair that they don’t have the help they need to make their kids’ lives as good as they can be?”

Success Story: With Save the Children, Garner has helped bring books, toys, and early-childhood development training to families across the country. On a trip to California’s Central Valley—one of the poorest regions in the U.S.—Garner visited a nonverbal 11-month-old who was given a rubber ball. The boy, who’d never seen a ball before, began flapping his arms and babbling at his mother, who, with gentle encouragement, started talking with her baby for the first time. “It was like a light flicked on,” Garner recalls. “As brick-by-brick as this work is, it can change a kid’s life.”

Watch Ben Affleck Get Playful with Wife Jennifer Garner While Completing the Ice Bucket Challenge

Charitable and cute! Ben Affleck completed the ALS ice bucket challenge on Monday, Aug. 18 and his video might be the best yet considering it features an adorably cute moment with his wife Jennifer Garner.

“Tyler Perry called me out so I’m going to take the challenge [and] I’m also going to make a donation,” the Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice actor, 42, told the camera. “I guess I have to pick four other people so my people are going to be folks who I know from firsthand experience look good in a wet T-shirt,” Affleck jokingly added while challenging Jimmy Kimmel, Neil Patrick Harris, Matt Damon, and “the lady with the bucket” aka his wife Garner.

After stating his four people, Garner then dumps the bucket of ice over her husband of nine years and he immediately — and adorably — grabs her as they both fall backwards fully clothed into their pool. Off camera their kids can be heard laughing hysterically.

Men, Women and Children to Premiere at TIFF

Jen’s upcoming movie Men, Women & Children will have premiere at this year TIFF. The 39th annual Toronto International Film Festival will run September 4- 14 2014.

“Men, Women and Children” (dir. Jason Reitman) (World Premiere)

What TIFF says: “‘Men, Women and Children’ follows the story of a group of high school teenagers and their parents as they attempt to navigate the many ways the internet has changed their relationships, their communication, their self-image, and their love lives. Starring Jennifer Garner, Adam Sandler and Judy Greer.”

Awards possibilities: Following the washout that was “Labor Day,” Jason Reitman returns to Toronto with “Men, Women and Children,” an adaptation of Chad Kultgen’s novel. Reitman is hit and miss with awards season, but when he hits, as he did with “Juno” and “Up in the Air,” the results are huge. So, “Oscar-nominated actor Adam Sandler” might sound silly right now, but tell that to two-time nominee Jonah Hill.

Grapevine: Ben Affleck, Jennifer Garner and son spotted in Southfield

Some unexpected guests crashed a local 4-year-old’s birthday party Sunday at Detroit Kid City in Southfield. Ben Affleck and wife Jennifer Garner stopped by the kids’ play place on Greenfield Road with their toddler son, Samuel. Affleck and Garner are staying in Metro Detroit this summer while Affleck films “Batman vs. Superman.” The threesome spent about an hour at Detroit Kid City, Affleck getting some video of his 2-year-old son while he played and Garner chit-chatting with other moms. One guest said parents of the birthday boy had no idea they’d be joined by such famous company.
