Lionsgate has revealed the poster for Paul Haggis' upcoming thriller, "The Next Three Days," starring Russell Crowe, Liam Neeson, Elizabeth Banks and Olivia Wilde.
You'd think they'd actually want to put international star Russell Crowe's face on it, but perhaps this is just the first iteration and we'll eventually see the non-arty version with just faces we all know. Either way, this version is pretty unremarkable even if it's attempting to be artistic.
In a recent issue of EW (doesn't appear to be online) Haggis said the film was skipping the film festival circuit because he wanted it to be viewed as a commercial thriller and not an arthouse film. Sure, whatever you like, Paul. Here's the synopsis.
Life seems perfect for John Brennan until his wife, Lara, is arrested for a gruesome murder she says she didn't commit. Three years into her sentence, John is struggling to hold his family together, raising their son and teaching at college while he pursues every means available to prove her innocence. With the rejection of their final appeal, Lara becomes suicidal and John decides there is only one possible, bearable solution: to break his wife out of prison. Refusing to be deterred by impossible odds or his own inexperience, John devises an elaborate escape plot and plunges into a dangerous and unfamiliar world, ultimately risking everything for the woman he loves.Her's the trailer if you missed it. "The Next Three Days" hits theaters on November 19.
