From legendary director Ivan Reitman comes the thrilling sports drama film Draft Day just in time for the 2014 NFL Kickoff. Sports movie icon and Academy Award winner Kevin Costner leads an all-star cast that includes Jennifer Garner, Denis Leary, Frank Langella, Sam Elliott, Sean Combs, Terry Crews, Tom Welling, with Academy Award winner Ellen Burstyn and Chadwick Boseman. Houston Texans running back Arian Foster makes his feature film debut. Written by Rajiv Joseph and Scott Rothman, Draft Day was made in exclusive partnership with the NFL, allowing unprecedented access to the actual 2013 NFL Draft, an event drawing higher ratings than the playoffs for baseball, basketball and hockey.
It is NFL Draft Day. Cleveland Browns General Manager Sonny Weaver Jr.’s job is on the line after the team’s owner Anthony Molina has threatened to fire him if he does not make a splash and generate ticket sales. With his career and future with pregnant girlfriend Ali Parker in jeopardy, he makes a bold move and trades away the Browns’ three first-round draft picks over the next three years to the Seahawks in exchange for the #1 pick. Up against fan pressure, an ambitious owner and hard-nosed coach Vince Penn, Sonny faces the biggest decision of his life that can change the lives of athletes and the fortunes of football teams forever. Should he go with the consensus #1 pick, the arrogant University of Wisconsin quarterback Bo Callahan, or trust his instincts and risk losing it all by choosing Vontae Mack, an outspoken talented linebacker from Ohio State who is a lower pick?
Both the DVD and Blu-ray special features include audio commentary with writers Rajiv Joseph and Scott Rothman plus deleted scenes. Exclusive to Blu-ray are two featurettes: exclusive 58-minute “making of” featurette titled “On The Clock: The Making of Draft Day,” and “Welcome to Primetime,” an inside look behind-the-scenes of the NFL Draft.
