Kevin Costner Tries to Save Football in First 'Draft Day' Trailer

See also

For fans of the NFL, the day of the college draft is full of promise. It's the time when Hall of Fame careers begin and championship franchises are built. It can be pretty intense, and director Ivan Reitman hopes to capture that energy in the sports drama Draft Day, and judging by the first trailer he may have it nailed.

Kevin Costner stars as the general manager of the Cleveland Browns who finds himself under the gun when his team trades for the #1 draft pick. Set over the course of a single day, he must try and save football in Cleveland while balancing his personal and professional life, which includes flirting over football with Jennifer Garner. Obviously the comparisons to Moneyball are there as the film goes into the internal mechanics of a pro ball club, and if this proves half as successful as that was Draft Day won't have to worry about being labeled "Mr. Irrelevant".

Directed by Ivan Reitman and co-starring Frank Langella, Joe Manganiello, Chadwick Boseman, Denis Leary, Terry Crews, Sam Elliott, Ellen Burstyn, Tom Welling, Sean Combs, and Rosanna Arquette, Draft Day gets selected on April 11th 2014.
