Jason Reitman’s Labor Day is a complete departure from the down to earth comedies we normally see him direct. It’s a darker turn for the acclaimed director. The film is based on the Joyce Manyard novel of the same name and follows 13-year-old boy (Gattlin Griffith) and his reclusive mother (Kate Winslet) who help pick up a man (Josh Brolin) in need of help. Little do they know that the person they helped out is actually a dangerous fugitive who ends up holding the family that helped him hostage during Labor Day Weekend.
The film has already received some high praise at both the Toronto International Film Festival and Telluride Film Festival. It also stars J.K. Simmons, Clark Gregg, James Van Der Beek, and Tobey Maguire. Paramount will give the movie a limited release on December 25, and it will expand nationwide on January 31. Hit the jump to see a pair of trailers.
The trailer is a quiet and subdued trailer that reveals the plot of Labor Day in a slow manner, but it also leaves just enough mystery behind so that audience has to watch the entire movie to see how it all plays out.
We have two trailers for the film. The first one, a /Film exclusive, is the best one of the two and the one that gives the least amount of spoilers. I really suggest that you avoid the second one as it does give a lot away.
