Gattlin Griffith (“Green Lantern”) plays Winslet’s 13-year-old son, who is actually the focus of the coming-of-age story about a boy struggling to be the man the house in his father’s absence.

J.K. Simmons, Clark Gregg, James Van Der Beek, and Tobey Maguire co-star in Jason Reitman’s latest film, which has a tone that starkly contrasts the critically-acclaimed director’s previous work.

Paramount Pictures is releasing the dramatic tale in theaters on Dec. 25.

The studio has released a second trailer, which features Maguire narrating the story from the perspective of Winslet’s son when he’s all grown up. Watch it below:
