Oscar Still “Up In The Air”

Despite the media attempts last week to proclaim “Precious” the new Oscar Best Picture frontrunner, my money at this point still stays on “Up in the Air.” A serious theme (corporate downsizing) plus big-time entertainment value plus movie-star wattage (George Clooney) conspire to make this catnip for Oscar voters who, don’t forget, mostly watch the contenders at home on DVD. Having said all this, I don’t think the official trailer above gives a very good idea of either what the movie’s about or conveys its sense of fun.
