First 'Draft Day' Trailer and Poster, Featuring Kevin Costner

Summit has released the first Draft Day trailer and the first poster for the movie which stars Kevin Costner as NFL general manager Sonny Weaver who 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.

Directed by Ivan Reitman the film co-stars 42 star Chadwick Boseman along with Ellen Burstyn, Denis Leary, Frank Langella and Sean 'P. Diddy' Combs.

    Doesn't look THAT bad. Might be decent.

    Well, I'm excited because the NFL draft is one of my favorite times of the year. But I'm not really sure how good it will be. Plus, as a Dallas fan, we don't win that often, Mr. Leary. ;)

      Yeah, Dallas hasn't been winning championships in nearly 20 years.

    I'm kind of intrigued. Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't this on the blacklist?

    He's the GM for the Browns though. We all know how it'll end.

    *SPOILER*

    Costner makes the wrong pick and the city of Cleveland collectively shakes their head.....again

    At least it's not called the Brandon Weeden story.

    This looks solid. Good trailer.

    It's quite amusing that despite how utterly photoshopped Costner looks in that picture, they still couldn't change the dead eyed look on his face.

    I love me some Ivan Reitman, but this? I'm not so sure. The trailer didn't inspire me at all. Perhaps this will be a Rated-R comedy that comes along and surprises all of us. Although, I doubt the NFL would allow a film about the draft to be anything more than PG-13. I'm glad to see Kevin Costner back in so many films. I hope this is a good one.

    Thems the facts
