An exclusive clip from UP IN THE AIR featuring the great Jason Bateman and that Clooney character!!!

Published at: Nov. 19, 2009, 8:44 p.m. CST by Capone

Hey everyone. Capone in Chicago. I told you I'd be hounding you guys with all sorts of teasers and clips for the upcoming splendor that is UP IN THE AIR, which our own Copernicus declared "the film to beat for Best Picture this year." I happen to concur. Today, I've got clip given exclusively to AICN that features the film's star, George Clooney, and the always-excellent Jason Bateman, who plays Clooney's boss, who is announcing his intention to saddle the solitude-oriented Clooney with a temporary partner. Enjoy!

    I always get a chuckle out of a smartass who ends up being a dumbass. It's "whose."

    by mjgtexas

    It's like The Wrestler with steel guitars.

    The always excellent lockesbrokenleg

    by GunterMonkey

    Kind of like the last time you had a big hit...oh wait, that was never. Your last hit consisted of a wooden paddle and your mom's knee.

    Cue a stupid reply by lockesbrokenleg in 3, 2, 1...

    by GunterMonkey

    Ever hear of a little show called "Arrested Development"? Guess not.

  • Nov. 19, 2009, 9:47 p.m. CST

    I'm kind of starting to hate this movie already...

    by Ribbons

    ...I'm sure it'll be good, but enough with the pimping, already!

  • Nov. 19, 2009, 10:04 p.m. CST

    Lol, you guys

    by lockesbrokenleg

    Kiss assers.

    by MacReady452

    if it wasn't for lockes everyone would be sucking each others cocks on here 24/7. his comments are always contrary to the popular opinion. that is what the kids in the street call "keeping it real". hate on lockes.

  • Nov. 19, 2009, 10:11 p.m. CST

    i only say this cause that clip was SHIT

    by MacReady452

    you would rather disagree with lockes than agree with him that a shit clip was a waste of everyones time.

  • Nov. 19, 2009, 10:13 p.m. CST

    Lol, shouldn't you guiys be shitting on Avatar?

    by lockesbrokenleg

    What interest could you possibly have in this movie?

  • Nov. 19, 2009, 10:13 p.m. CST


    by MacReady452

    fuck this movie. keep rrrreeeaaaccchhhiinngg for that Oscar. This smacks of effort.

    saw a preview in atlanta last week. This film is really really good. Definitely Reitman's best movie.

    macready452 "keeping it real"...

    by GunterMonkey

    ...are you from the 90s? Anyway, 'keeping it real' as you call it, doesn't always equate with disagreeing with popular opinion. And Locks typically just rips on people with mean comments...Perhaps Locksbrokenleg is gunning for DannyGlover'sdickblood spot now that DGDB has left the building...

  • Nov. 19, 2009, 10:58 p.m. CST

    And one more thing locksbrokenfrickenname too long

    by GunterMonkey

    how am i an ass kisser for supporting Jason Bateman? It's not like he's an A lister at the moment (oh wait, that was your point! I get it now!) lol

  • Nov. 19, 2009, 11:13 p.m. CST

    I'm not from the 90's but the kids in the streets are

    by MacReady452

    GunterMonkey I know lockes bit, it just so happens that this time he is right. Jason Bateman hasn't done shit for a minute now (is that slang more current?)and THAT CLIP SUCKED. Why bother putting that up? JB: "How do you take your coffee?" GC: "Cream no sugar." Aint it cool?

  • Nov. 19, 2009, 11:17 p.m. CST

    You people racking om me all the time

    by lockesbrokenleg

    Just because you know you'd be right there making fun of that clip. Who the hell gets excited about Jason Fucking Bateman.

  • Nov. 19, 2009, 11:20 p.m. CST

    Starting to think Bateman is overrated by the AICN people

    by JuanSanchez

    I always want/expect to laugh at him more than I do.

  • Nov. 20, 2009, 12:05 a.m. CST

    I agree with lockes and macready...

    by GunterMonkey

    So I'm just messin' with you guys (that's a 90s phrase too, I think, haha)...I also think juansanchez's statement is true...I want to laugh at Bateman, I want to believe 'Arrested' wasn't the only thing he can do, but he just isn't giving us more. And yes, McReady, that clip sucked...why did they post that shit? oh well.

  • Nov. 20, 2009, 12:10 a.m. CST

    That's half a clip- no reaction shot from Bateman?

    by YackBacker

    Boooo! Sorry, I have no wood for this movie. I'll catch it because it's obviously being set-up as "Oscar Gold 2009" but please, don't oversell this shit to us.

  • Nov. 20, 2009, 1 a.m. CST

    Bateman is the straight man

    by greyspecter

    He needs zany characters to play off of him, like in AD. As for his "hits", he was in Juno, Hancock, and Extract. No blockbusters, but Justine gotta eat. Her brother's acting dust.

  • Nov. 20, 2009, 2:49 a.m. CST

    Saw it last night at the Paramount screening...

    by Droogie Alex

    ...on the Hollywood lot, followed by a talk with the two female leads. Really well done film. You guys will like it. No pat endings.

  • Nov. 20, 2009, 7:31 a.m. CST

    The trailers for this movie depresses me...

    by sonnyfern

    Don't ask me why.

  • Nov. 20, 2009, 7:42 a.m. CST

    Droogie, how hot is Vera Farmiga in real life?

    by YackBacker

    I feel like it could go either way with her- that she be really hot or really disappointing in person.

  • Nov. 20, 2009, 11:41 a.m. CST

    Teen Wolf Too

    by HoboJuiceExplosion

    That is all.

  • Nov. 20, 2009, 12:55 p.m. CST

    Always excellent? Does that include Teenwolf Too?

    by Royston Lodge

    I mean, words like "always" shouldn't be thrown around lightly.<p> Heh heh heh...

  • Nov. 20, 2009, 9:29 p.m. CST


    by MacReady452

    The common ground feels so good under foot. I didn't see Extract but I also never heard much acclaim for Bateman. I think he is capable of doing something good but it just hasn't happened yet.
