First trailer for Jason Reitman and Diablo Cody's Tully starring Charlize Theron


We've seen Charlize Theron play everything from a rough-looking serial killer to the commander of a tribe of post-apocalyptic warriors to a badass secret agent.

Of taking on the role, Theron recently told PEOPLE, "I don't think I could've done this film without having experienced motherhood yet, so this film came at the ideal time for me".

Oscar victor Charlize Theron is set to star in upcoming film Tully that explores the realities of motherhood. Though she is hesitant to accept the extravagance at first, Marlo comes to form a unique bond with the young nanny named Tully (Mackenzie Davis). The comedy finds Charlize Theron as a mom whose given an unexpected, life-changing present.

The island will be part of the World islands, an artificial archipelago in the Persian gulf meant to look like a map of the world. ET caught up with Lohan last month, where she dished more about her relationship status. 'I've had enough of them!' she claimed.

Even in this teaser trailer alone, Theron does a great job of pulling sympathy as she trudges through every minute of what must feel like the longest day ever every single day. The film also stars Ron Livingston as Marlo's hubby.

Watch the trailer for the movie below! For this film, she re-teams with Jason Reitman (who directed Juno and Young Adult), and Charlize Theron (who acted in Young Adult) to bring a film that looks to both tire and laugh. A baby cries in the middle of the night, and exhausted mother, Marlo (Charlize Theron), wakes to feed her child (walking, dangerously, across a LEGO-encrusted hallway). Reitman and Cody also worked together on the acclaimed "Juno", which won Cody a screenwriting Oscar.

Help is on the way, however, in the form of Tully (Mackenzie Davis), a nanny who arrives on Marlo's doorstep in the final scene of the promo like a gift from the gods, a modern-day Mary Poppins.
