Clip of George Clooney in Up in the Air

First Look: George Works That Clooney Charm in Up in the Air

UPDATE: When I posted yesterday, we only had a clip from the movie. Now there's an official teaser trailer, so check it out after the jump!

Start saving your movie money, because we've got a Clooney-intensive season ahead at the theater. A couple of weeks ago, we got our first taste of his wacky character in The Men Who Stare at Goats, and here's your first look at a very different Clooney in Up in the Air. In the film, directed by Juno's Jason Reitman, Clooney plays a charming corporate businessman who makes his career by downsizing companies and racking up frequent flier miles. In the scene below, we watch Clooney smirk and flirt his way through a conversation with a woman he meets in a hotel bar (Vera Farmiga) who shares his love of the many perks of jet-setting.

The film was a hit at the Telluride Film Festival over the weekend and is already garnering Oscar buzz even though Reitman apparently only finished it a few days ago. It hits theaters on Dec. 4, so check out the clip and trailer when you
