Crowe and The Next Three Days have provided us with an exclusive clip from the upcoming thriller.
The Next Three Days follows Crowe’s character as he tries to break his wrongly-convicted wife out of jail.
Crowe plays John Brennan, who previously had the life that dreams are made of. His wife Lara (Elizabeth Banks) has been wrongly convicted of murder. After three years and numerous appeals that did not go the couple’s way, John feels there is only one outlet left for saving his wife from her suicidal thoughts — breaking her out of prison.
Crowe and Banks should make an arresting pair as Crowe is still riding a career wave that began with Gladiator and continues to this day. Banks herself is on quite a career high as her film roles have landed her firmly on the A-list while she still does fun projects such as her guest-starring role on 30 Rock as Alec Baldwin’s girlfriend.
In The Next Three Days, Crowe must navigate the literal bars that separate him and his wife from their lives in order to secure her freedom. In a classic overcoming the odds tale, The Next Three Days promises to grip audiences until the final moments of Crowe and Bank’s emotional and thrilling tale.
The Next Three Days also stars Liam Neeson, Brian Dennehy, Tron: Legacy’s Olivia Wilde and is written and directed by Paul Haggis (Quantum of Solace, Casino Royale, Oscar-winning screenwriter for Crash and nominee for Million Dollar Baby).
