The trailer for Juno director Jason Reitman's new comedy-drama Men, Women & Children is a creepy look at the age of social media and constant interconnection.

Jennifer Garner stars as concerned parent Patricia, who maniacally surveys every single email and text her daughter sends, whilst lecturing the other neighbourhood parents to do the same.

Constant babe Ansel Elgort, plays another put-upon teenager called Tim, the ex-football star son of a divorced dad (Dean Norris - of Breaking Bad fame). His love for Brandy (Kaitlyn Dever) gets complicated when Patricia starts monitoring their every interaction.

Adam Sandler and Rosemarie DeWitt also star as another strained couple, who's sexless marriage leads them to extreme solutions (hands up if you never wanted to see Adam Sandler visiting an escort).

If Reitman's previous releases (Thank You For Smoking, Juno, Up in The Air, Young Adult) are anything to go by, there's a lot of potential here.

Men, Women & Children goes on wide release October 10th.
