More Clooney and Coen

From Jason Reitman, the director of "Thank You for Smoking" and the beloved Academy Award nominee "Juno," here comes "Up in the Air," the story of a man who lives his life in travel. It stars George Clooney in a role that is already being considered a sly variation of his Oscar-nominated performance in "Michael Clayton" and of the same high caliber. This crowd-pleaser that has audiences of the Toronto festival already in love is in speculation to garner a Best Picture nomination.

From the Coen brothers comes this most personal movie titled, "A Serious Man." This first trailer makes the movie out to look wryly comic and oddball while at the same time affectionate and insightful. It's a tough call whether or not this is looking at awards, but there's no doubt that this could be another accomplishment from the brotherly directing duo.
