Kevin Costner Stars in Two New Super Bowl Commercials for 'DRAFT DAY' and '3 DAYS TO KILL'

I feel like I'm in the minority in saying that sports movies have really been dropping the ball lately (pun intended). After the snoozefest that was Moneyball and the pointless Rush (otherwise known as "the movie in which we got to see Chris Hemsworth's best ass(ets))," the idea of watching another sports movie right now isn't very appealing for me. But, I have to admit, Kevin Costner (known to us longtime groupies as The Silver Fox) is in the midst of an enviable career comeback right now and I am so here for it (negative Jack Ryan reviews be damned).

The actor stars in the upcoming Ivan Reitman-directed football drama, DRAFT DAY, alongside Jennifer Garner and Ellen Burstyn (another one whose career can't stop, won't stop). More on the film, which is in theaters April 11th:

On the day of the NFL Draft, general manager Sonny Weaver (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.

Appropriately, Summit Entertainment (the studio releasing the film) is taking advantage of Super Bowl weekend with a new TV clip you can watch below:

And Costner doesn't stop there. He's clearly planning to take over the Super Bowl with another newly released TV spot, this time for the action film 3 DAYS TO KILL (February 21st). Directed by McG and co-written by Luc Besson and Adi Hasak, the movie is described as "A dying Secret Service Agent trying to reconnect with his estranged daughter is offered an experimental drug that could save his life in exchange for one last assignment."

Check out the Super Bowl commercial:

And that concludes this Kevin Costner update. Now back to your regularly scheduled programming.
