Lionsgate has released the first trailer for the upcoming Paul Haggis film The Next Three Days which has a top notch cast of actors that includes Russell Crowe, Elizabeth Banks, Liam Neeson, Brian Dennehy and Olivia Wilde. Haggis directed the Academy Award winning film Crash, and has written several films such as Million Dollar Baby, Flags of Our Fathers, Letters of Iwo Jima and several others.
The Next Three Days is actually a remake of a 2008 French film called Pour Elle it was released in the U.S. under the title Anything For Her. I haven't seen the original film yet, but from the trailer this looks like it could be a solidly good film.
Here's the official 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.
The film is set to come out on November 19th. Watch the trailer below and let us know what you think!
