“We’re Two People Who Get Turned On By Elite Status”

The theatrical trailer for Up in the Air is now out. The earlier teaser trailer and AAdmiral’s Club clip looked great, the trailer looks amazing. It’s the perfect script-based vehicle for George Clooney, and let’s face it for male frequent flyers who could possibly be better to cast as us?

  1. Great Trailer! The line that I now see you have Bolded as the title I heard to say:

    “we’re two people who are turned on by WEAK status”

    & I was like huh, that doesn’t really make sense… It did the second time around.

  2. Since it stars Clooney, I guess this will be a major motion picture. But, realistically, how many of us will make it to a theater to see it?

    Not many, I suspect. Rather, we’ll see it — yup, you guessed it — on an airplane!

  3. the third song played in the trailer is called help yourself by sad brad smith and the modern limes. it’s not currently available to purchase, I messaged the band about it though and they said it’ll be featured on the movie’s soundtrack and should come out around November of 2009.
