Labor Day: This is not a love story. Kate Winslet plays a single mother who, along with her son (Gattlin Griffith), is apparently held hostage by escaped fugitive Josh Brolin. But are they hostages or helpers? The first image from Labor Day leaves things vague and unsettling. Jason Reitman (Up in the Air, Young Adult) directed and adapted the 2009 novel by Joyce Maynard for the screen. The movie is due in theaters on December 25. []

Paranormal Activity: We won't be seeing a new scary Paranormal Activity movie in time for Halloween this year, but to make up for it, Paramount will be releasing TWO entries in the series in 2014. First up is the Latino-themed spin-off Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones, which was formerly titled The Oxnard Tapes; that will be out on January 3, 2014. Then the series returns to our favorite month of the year; Paranormal Activity 5 has been dated for October 24, 2014. [Cinema Blend/The Wrap]

The Man from U.N.C.L.E.: Hugh Grant, who played multiple roles in last year's Cloud Atlas, will take on just one character in Guy Ritchie's The Man from U.N.C.L.E., but it's an important one: the head of British Naval Intelligence. The movie, adapted from the 1960s TV show, stars Henry Cavill, Armie Hammer and Alicia Vikander; production is expected to begin this fall. [The Hollywood Reporter]

Devil's Pass Trailer: Five American students decide to investigate the mysterious deaths of a group of hikers, but if the trailer for Devil's Pass is any indication, they may end up paying for their curiosity with their lives. Renny Harlin (Cliffhanger, Deep Blue Sea) directed the mystery-horror film, set in the unforgiving environment of the Russian Ural Mountains. Formerly known as The Dyatlov Pass Incident, the movie hits theaters in limited release on August 23. [The Film Stage]
