‘Labor Day’ Trailer: Jason Reitman and Josh Brolin Show Us A Perfect World

By  · Published on October 31st, 2013

In 1993, Clint Eastwood delivered Kevin Costner as a man on the lam in A Perfect World. It was a smart, dusty twist on coming-of-age featuring a kidnapped boy and ketchup sandwiches. It’s one of Eastwood’s best as a director, and watching the new trailer for Jason Reitman’s Labor Day, I couldn’t help but pick up an echo of it.

Reitman looks like he’s doing what he always does (which also means casually going after a fifth Oscar nomination) with the story of an escaped convict (Josh Brolin) playing house with his collateral. Naturally, there’s more to his and the family’s stories. Our review is here.

Check out the trailer for yourself and be prepared for a flash of James Van Der Beek as a lawman:

Labor Day hits theaters January 31st.
