We brought you the first glimpse at Charlize Theron in Jason Reitman‘s next film Young Adult late last week, but now the full image has arrive in high-quality from Paramount.

The Thank You For Smoking and Up In The Air director is re-teaming with his Oscar-winning Juno writer Diablo Cody for this drama also starring Patton Oswalt, Elizabeth Reaser and Patrick Wilson.
