Everyone stares at their smartphone in the first trailer for 'Juno' director's next film

There's more clicking than talking in 'Men, Women & Children'

There isn't a single line of dialog in the first trailer for Men, Women & Children, the next film from Juno director Jason Reitman. And yet, because the film displays little popups depicting the digital communications that are simultaneously pushing everyone apart and bringing them together, we still know a ton about the people it shows and the world they inhabit. The film isn't meant to take place in a dystopia, but the entire world is so absorbed by the screens in front of them that no one is really communicating with anyone else. It's deeply unsettling, but it looks like Reitman's next picture will be taking as sharp of a look at our current culture as his other films have.
