Jason Reitman, the highly acclaimed director of Juno and Thank You For Smoking, is back with Up In The Air this Christmas. The cast includes funnymen Jason Bateman, Zach Galifianakis, Danny McBride, and George Clooney in a role some are hailing to be his best performance in years.

Clooney plays Ryan Bingham, a corporate downsizing expert who spends more time in the air than in his office. Barely a flight away from reaching ten million frequent flyer miles, Bingham faces a reality that could threaten his entire lifestyle and leave him, quite literally, grounded.
