The Next Three Days sees Russell Crowe and Elizabeth Banks play John and Laura, a married couple whose lives are turned upside down when Laura is convicted of murder. John, convinced of her innocence, consults ex-con Liam Neeson to help him break Laura out of jail.
It looks like a sharp thriller with Crowe doing the whole ‘man on a mission’ bit that makes the ladies swoon. It lseems that Banks has also nailed her damsel in distress/murderer character as she flexes her dramatic muscles once more. These two are backed up by Liam Neeson, who is apparently sporting a beret in the movie, and Tron: Legacy’s Olivia Wilde
Directed by Crash’s Paul Haggis, The Next Three Days arrives in UK cinemas in January 2011.
