A first preview clip of Up in the Air, the upcoming comedy drama movie directed by Jason Reitman and starring George Clooney, is available online:
Ryan Bingham (George ClooneY) meets Alex (Vera Farmiga), the frequent-traveler woman of his dreams, for the first time
“George Clooney plays Ryan Bingham, a 35 year old a career transition counselor at a Denver-based management consulting company, Integrated Strategic Management (ISM). Ryan travels around the country to terminate corporate employees. He does not have a personal life and he numbs himself with sex, booze and drugs. His life on the road comes to a halt when his company downsizes its travel budget. He is required to spend more time at home just as he is on the cusp of a goal he’s worked toward for years: reaching five million frequent flyer miles and just after he’s met the frequent-traveler woman of his dreams.”
George Clooney is a damn charming actor. Even when like in the movie Up in the Air he plays a not-so-friendly character!
The corporate world is a source of inspiration for Hollywood. We already had the Extract, The Informant will be released soon and we’ll get to see the movie Up in the Air quite soon.
