Ivan Reitman’s upcoming sports drama Draft Day has a trailer below and it begs the question, how is this a movie? Well that’s just me I guess, I know there’s a lot of people who would watch this, a film takes place within the span of one day, the day of the NFL draft.
General Manager Sonny Weaver (Kevin Costner) has the opportunity to save football in Cleveland when he trades for the number one pick. He must quickly decide what he’s willing to sacrifice in pursuit of perfection as the lines between his personal and professional life become blurred on a life-changing day for a few hundred young men with dreams of playing in the NFL.
The last movie Reitman made that I liked was Kindergarten Cop when I was 5 years old, so…go bears! The film also stars Jennifer Garner, Frank Langella, Denis Leary, Timothy Simons, and Ellen Burstyn.
Draft Day opens April 11, 2014, watch the trailer below:

First Trailer for Joe Wright’s ANNA KARENINA Starring Keira Knightley, Jude Law and Aaron Johnson:
It was only a matter of time I suppose; a feature film biopic based on the life of Michael Jackson is going to happen, eventually. There is definitely a lot of material there, what an interesting life that man lived. His estate is currently shopping around the rights to Jackson’s story, Variety reports that the executor of the estate John Branca has already approached Ivan Reitman and Tom Pollock’s Montecito Picture Company about the possibility of producing and financing the biopic.
It was revealed that the project would “only cover certain periods of the late singer’s life”; so don’t expect to see much of his controversial moments in there. This could be something for the fans, focusing on his rise to fame, music, and charitable accomplishments.
If you want to see an interesting version of his life, do as I did and watch 1992′s The Jacksons: An American Dream.
It’s official, Ivan Reitman ain’t afraid of no ghosts. Or trilogies for that matter. MTV shared with us this morning that the director will return to his roots with another Ghostbusters. He wouldn’t comment on recent rumours about the film such as the statements made by Sigourney Weaver, who said that Bill Murray’s Peter Venkman character may appear in the film as a ghost. “I’m not going to comment on what’s in the script and on what Sigourney may or may not have said.” He offers that there are “some very cool things” in the script now.
I hope they don’t go the route of new young recruits being taught by the original aged gang. I think the old age alone is set up for some classic comedy. Weaver’s son Oscar from the sequel may be grown up now – perhaps he can be working at becoming a buster himself. With new technology and 3D all over the shop, we may have a pretty spectacular movie on our hands here.
