‘Draft Day’ Trailer: Kevin Costner’s on a Comeback Kick in 2014
Could 2014 be the year of the Kevin Costner comeback? The actor, who was in huge hits in the late eighties and early nineties, wore out his welcome with pictures like 'The Postman,' but after appearing in this year's 'Man of Steel,' he's got five starring roles lined up for next year, including 'Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit,' '3 Days to Kill' and now 'Draft Day,' which just released its first trailer and poster.
Here's the poster:
Directed by Ivan Reitman -- who also had a lot of big hits over twenty years ago -- this looks to be the perfect fantasy film for Cleveland football fans, as it's about their Browns having a really good draft. 'Draft Day' follows another film from the eighties ('Major League') that tries to give Cleveland fans a big win, albeit fictional ones. Basically, Hollywood feels sorry for Cleveland sports fans. 'Draft Day' opens April 11. Here's the film's synopsis:
On the day of the NFL Draft, general manager Sonny Weaver (Costner) has the opportunity to save football in Cleveland when he trades for the number one pick. He must quickly decide what he’s willing to sacrifice in pursuit of perfection as the lines between his personal and professional life become blurred on a life-changing day for a few hundred young men with dreams of playing in the NFL.
