'Tully' Trailer: Charlize Theron is an Exhausted Mom Who Needs a Break

'Tully' Trailer: Charlize Theron is an Exhausted Mom Who Needs a Break

Theron looks pretty worse for wear, but some help comes knocking on her door in the form of Mackenzie Davis.

As first trailers go, Tully's sets up the premise with a good look at Marlo's exhausting day-to-day life.

Charlize Theron is nearly unrecognizable in the first look at her latest film Tully - only it's not because she's dyed her hair or radically altered her appearance in any other way.

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.

After two consecutive disappointments (Labor Day; Men, Women and Children), Tully - also co-starring Mark Duplass - seems like a return to more comfortable terrain for director Reitman.

Nonetheless, she also continues to be one of Hollywood's most versatile actresses, and the Oscar victor will be getting back to more dramatic material - albeit with a definite comedic edge - this April, when she stars in Tully, a saga about motherhood that's just released its tantalizing first teaser. Marlo (Academy Award victor Charlize Theron), a mother of three including a newborn, is gifted a night nanny by her brother (Mark Duplass).

Filmmaker Jason Reitman's second movie Juno, written by Diablo Cody, got them both a ton of awards attention back in 2007 with Cody winning an Oscar for her first screenplay.

In the movie, Theron plays Marlo, the (not quite so good) mother of three children who is gifted a nanny by her brother (Mark Duplass), and Marlo begins to form a bond with the young nanny Tully, played by MacKenzie Davis (The Martian).
