This week's other contenders include 'Labor Day,' 'The LEGO Movie,' and more
7. 'Labor Day'
Release date: December 25, 2013
Who: Josh Brolin, Kate Winslet, Gattlin Griffith, and Tobey Maguire. Directed by Jason Reitman
Trailer soundtrack: Birdy's "Wings"
The Pitch: "Juno" and "Up in the Air" director Reitman breaks from the norm in this mixture of coming-of-age drama and crime thriller in which a escaped convict (Brolin) shacks up with a young single mother (Winslet) and her son with surprising results.
The Verdict: Looking to feature much less humor that his previous outings, "Labor Day" is being positioned as an Oscar contender (at least on the acting side) with broad appeal, but this trailer just doesn't make it look very exciting.
