These clips don’t tell us if Sonny decides to keep or drop Bo, but the one with Frank Langella does give us a taste for Ivan Reitman’s directing. The scene has a trippy, moving split-screen that frequently overlaps Langella onto Costner’s side, adding some energy to this tale of a football manager who is making plays in an attempt to land the number one draft pick.

Draft Day

These clips don’t tell us if Sonny decides to keep or drop Bo, but the one with Frank Langella does give us a taste for Ivan Reitman’s directing. The scene has a trippy, moving split-screen that frequently overlaps Langella onto Costner’s side, adding some energy to this tale of a football manager who is making plays in an attempt to land the number one draft pick.

So what does "Draft Day" have that we’re not seeing? The script is by Rajiv Joseph and Scott Rothman, which was number one on the 2012 The Black List. The story attracted Kevin Costner and a great ensemble cast that includes Frank Langella (who is in the middle of a tremendous run in “King Lear” at the Brooklyn Academy of Music), Denis Leary, Jennifer Garner, Sam Elliott, Terry Crews, Ellen Burstyn and more. What does this team see in the project that we don’t? Obviously, we’re chomping at the bit to find out…

“Draft Day” arrives on April 11, 2014. Watch four clips below.
