Josh Brolin Ties Up Kate Winslet: LABOR DAY Trailer

, Managing Editor

The online, alternative trailer for Jason Reitman's new film has dropped at Slash Film, ahead of the theatrical version, and it reveals Labor Day to be, apparently, a straightforward drama with some suspense elements.

Josh Brolin is an escaped convict who takes single mother Kate Winslet and her son Gattlin Griffith hostage over a long holiday weekend. Reitman adapted a novel by Joyce Maynard and directed.

The trailer sets up the situation nicely, imparting a sweaty mood of tension without being oppressive -- note that Winslet gets tied up, but not the boy -- and suggesting a bit more to the story than a simple hostage standoff.

The movie is due out in the U.S. in January.
