Draft Day
If there's a running theme in Kevin Costner's films for 2014, it's recruitment. In "Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit," the title says it all with Costner enlisting Chris Pine for some covert action, then in "3 Days To Kill" the actor himself is hired to kick some ass, Euro style. And then later on the spring, Costner will head downfield for "Draft Day" where the thrill of the titular event will be turned cinematic.

Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit
Though Tom Clancy sadly passed way yesterday (check out feature on his best and worst films), marketing campaigns are usually plotted out long in advance, and while some raised an eyebrow at Paramount's supposed insensitivity at dropping the first poster for the movie as the news of the author's death was circulating, it was probably just a bad coincidence. And nevertheless, the campaign must soldier on -- now aided somewhat with Clancy's passing making headlines around the world -- and the first trailer for the terribly titled "Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit" is here.

Looks like Kevin Costner is following up his performance as Pa Kent in “Man Of Steel” with another patriarch role, only this time as the focal point in the Guillermo Del Toro-produced thriller “Midnight Delivery.” According to THR, Costner is in talks to star as a father who must become a drug mule in order to save his estranged daughter from a Colombian gang. The del Toro and Neil Cross scripted draft had Costner saving his son but we suppose the plot’s similarity to this year’s Dwayne Johnson-vehicle “Snitch” forced the change. We’re not sure exactly when the film will end up appearing in front of cameras since TV helmer Brian Kirk jumped ship for the Keanu Reeves-starring “Passengers.” Perhaps co-writer Cross, himself a veteran of TV with BBC’s “Luther,” can step in?

The Best & Worst Of 'Man of Steel'

Man of Steel
If you listen to the internet -- and that’s always a precarious thing to do -- Warner Bros. “Man Of Steel” is either the worst movie of all time or the best movie of all time and of course, nothing in between (and lord there’s been some kicking and screaming by people who disagree with one another). It’s either all due Zack Snyder inability to direct or David Goyer’s (and to an extent Christopher Nolan’s) writing genius. Granted some Playlisters did not like this movie much and some of it thought it was decent-to-ok, but we’d still like to think there’s a middle ground to be found when looking at this latest Superman movie (in fact, we’re happy to say our original review does just that).

First Look At Kevin Costner In 'Three Days To Kill,' Valentine's Day 2014 Release Date Set

You might be under the impression that Hollywood only releases romances and dramas on Valentine's Day, hoping to lure in couples celebrating their annual moment of gross PDA. You would be wrong. In recent years, movies like "The Wolfman," "Safe House" and "Live Free Or Die Hard" hit theaters on or around V-Day, and 2014 will be no different. Granted, remakes "Endless Love" and "About Last Night" will be aiming for the heartsick, but YA adaptations "The Maze Runner" and "Vampire Academy: Blood Sisters" will also be in the mix and joining them is a movie co-written and produced by none other than Luc Besson.

Man of Steel, Superman
While we're still a way off from anything on the verdict for the actual movie, the marketing for "Man Of Steel" continues to be the best of the summer so far. Everyone on the Warner Bros. team is leaning on selling an epic experience and this latest TV spot is now different.

Jack Reacher. Jack The Giant Slayer. Jack Harper....we're getting a whole lot of Jack this year. And as 2013 wraps up, there will be another one in the form of "Jack Ryan," a reboot of sorts of the Tom Clancy character last seen on the big screen over a decade ago, played by Ben Affleck in "The Sum Of All Fears." Well, now Chris Pine is taking the mantle, and a couple new images from the upcoming blockbuster have arrived.

Lionsgate Circling Black List Topper 'Draft Day' With Ivan Reitman & Kevin Costner

What a difference a day makes, or at least winning an award. Last year, a football movie called "Draft Day" started building steam with Ivan Reitman to direct and Kevin Costner to star, but it all seemingly fell apart when Paramount put the project in turnaround in October. But they likely wound up regretting that decision a little bit when two months later, the script by Rajiv Joseph and Scott Rothman wound up on top of the Black List. And with the holiday crush over, studio execs are back at work and Lionsgate may want to take this to the end zone.
