George Clooney's Ryan Bingham and Vera Farmiga's frequent-traveler Alex Goran meet for the very first time, and try to impress each other with their frequent flier card collection.
After its sneak peek being previewed at the Telluride Film Festival on Saturday, September 5, forthcoming drama comedy "Up in the Air" unleashed its first clip. Debuted via Apple, the sneak peek exposes the scene wherein George Clooney's Ryan Bingham meets for the very first time his love interest Vera Farmiga's Alex Goran.
Bingham is a corporate downsizing expert whose job is to travel around to different companies and determine who needs to be terminated. His only joy in life comes from the prospect of scoring his 10 million frequent flier miles. But, as he closes in on his goal and just after he's met the frequent-traveler woman of his dreams, his cherished life on the road becomes threatened.
Loosely based on Walter Kirn's novel, "Up in the Air" is directed by "Juno" helmer Jason Reitman. In addition to his helming part, Reitman also co-wrote the script with Sheldon Turner. Anna Kendrick, Jason Bateman, Danny McBride and Zach Galifianakis are among the cast ensemble.
The trailer will be made available on September 10 on iTunes and on September 18 in theaters attached to "The Informant!" and "Love Happens". Targeting a December 4 U.S. release, the movie itself is set to have its world premiere at 2009 Toronto International Film Festival which runs from September 10 to 19.
