With NFL playoffs beginning this weekend, now is the best time to watch the first trailer for the upcoming Ivan Reitman-directed football drama (err, comedy?) titled Draft Day starring Kevin Costner, which Lionsgate recently revealed online. Costner stars as Sonny Weaver, the general manager of the Cleveland Browns as he faces difficult decisions, anxiety, and other high-pressure tribulations during the annual NFL Draft. Check out the trailer and poster below.
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.
Draft Day will be released in theaters on April 11th. Jennifer Garner, Frank Langella, Denis Leary, Ellen Burstyn, Tom Welling, Sam Elliot, Terry Crews, and Chadwick Boseman co-star. What do you think?
