3 Days to Kill (2014)
Kevin Costner has not been the lead in a solid movie since Mr. Brooks (2007). He has been doing one thing each year ever since. But for 2014, Costner has 5 films either waiting to be released or in the works. 3 Days to Kill appears to be the most promising of the 5 films and could likely be his comeback movie.
The film is about a Secret Service agent (Kevin Costner) who is dying. He has been trying to spend more time with his daughter and wife, but he is offered an experimental drug that just might save his life. In exchange for the drug, he has 3 days to complete one last job.
The movie was written by Luc Besson and Adi Hasak and directed by McG. The rest of the noteworthy cast includes Amber Heard, Connie Nielsen, Hailee Steinfeld, Scott Burn, Richard Sammel, and Eriq Ebouaney.
The film appears like it might have some similarities to Taken (2008). Costner’s character is trying to spend time with his family while at the same time on a mission and cracking skulls.
The movie is set to release on 02/21/14.
Ender’s Game (2013)
The movie is based off of the famous novel with the same title by Orson Scott Card.
From the preview it appears like the world almost lost a war against aliens. Now, the remaining human survivors are training children in space to be a different kind of soldier that will hopefully be able to defeat the aliens and save the human race.
It’s a science fiction movie with a big budget and even bigger special effects.
The film is directed by Gavin Hood and stars Harrison Ford, Ben Kingsley, Asa Butterfield, Abigail Breslin, Hailee Steinfeld, Moises Arias, Aramis Knight, Nonso Anozie, Han Soto, and a bunch of kid actors that nobody will recognize.
Kingsley and Butterfield were both in Hugo (2011) together.
The film is destined to be a goldmine for the filmmakers.
I have not read the book, but the movie looks like it could be fun.
It is set to release on 11/1/13.
