Trailer: Juno

Fox Searchlight has found its niche as a faux-indie, and is on a roll in finding sleeper-ish crossover hits (see Little Miss Sunshine, and more recently, Once, which will see another surge in word-of-mouth awareness once it hits the DVD shelves). The latest looks to be the Jason Reitman (Thank You for Smoking) directed Juno, with Ellen Page and Michael Cera. So many things going for it – the envy-worthy casting of Jason Bateman, Jennifer Garner, Rainn Wilson, and Allison Janney – and pundits are already penciling in Oscar noms: from the Toronto Film Festival, Roger Ebert notes a standing ovation unprecedented in-length and fervor, and touts Ellen Page as a legit Best Actress prospect (Gold Derby). Either it’s Superbad for girls (Spout), or Knocked Up for girls (NY Post). Last I checked, those two were making hand-over-fist cash money.
