Watch: Paul Haggis' 'The Next Three Days' New Official Trailer
Lionsgate has debuted the first official trailer (via Yahoo) for Crash director Paul Haggis' newest drama The Next Three Days, or what some are calling Haggis' version of Law Abiding Citizen. The movie stars Russell Crowe and Elizabeth Banks as a married couple who go through hell when Banks is accused of murder. Liam Neeson and Olivia Wilde are in it, as well as the RZA and Brian Dennehy. I love these movies because we get to see Crowe slowly descend into madness and it will be crazy to see what he does. Plus, this becomes a prison escape movie halfway through, and that's awesome. I want to see this! What about you?

A married couple's (Crowe, Banks) life is flipped entirely upside down when the wife is accused of murder.
The Next Three Days is both written and directed by Oscar winning American filmmaker Paul Haggis, best known for Crash but he also directed Red Hot in 1993 and In the Valley of Elah in 2007. This new version of the script is based on the 2008 French film titled Pour Elle written by Fred Cavayé and Guillaume Lemans. This was shot mostly on location in Pittsburgh, PA late last year. Lionsgate is bringing The Next Three Days to theaters everywhere on November 19th this fall. The same day as the new Harry Potter! Interested?

this looks really watchable. and finally we have someone who has to ask how to use a gun compared to in the past where any person can just pick up a gun and know how to load it

$5 says she ends up not being so innocent at the end. there, saved you all $10. naw, i kid, still would like to see this regardless if i'm right or wrong. like alex said, russell crowe decending into madness is something worth watching for.

That was a really well done trailer. Its got me hooked. Obviously i havnt seen it yet but i think it looked a lot more 'real' than law abiding citizen and the acting seemed top notch. I must note that Neeson looks quite amusing as the old raggedy prison escapee.

Elizabeth Banks married to Russell Crowe - I don't think so. Poor casting.

The problem with this film is that its ANOTHER remake! This time its a 2008 French thriller called "Anything For Her" starring Diane Kruger. Now seeing as that was only 2 years ago...and having watched it on dvd a little while ago, there is very little point in me watching this as i already know the plot (and it looks identical by the way!). Its seems to me to be a waste of time and money...all they have done is swapped the actors! Much like the upcoming US remake of "Let The Right One In". The original French version is very good with good performances all round...so why waste my time with this version?

#11 - i just checked out netflix and "anything for her" (pour elle) isn't on there. and since this version looks good, i don't see the problem with a remake since it makes the movies story available to a new audience. so, it's not "a waste of time and money". maybe it would be a waste of your time since you had access to; and seen the original..........but the rest of us haven't seen it and i can't get it off netflix - so, not a waste of time for us. this looks good. the cast is great and it is nice to see a "normal" person in a movie who (when needing a gun) doesn't know anything about how to use it - much more realistic. i haven't seen it yet; but the trailer had me wondering - why wouldn't they try to sneak out of the city on tug boat or garbage scow (like DeNiro did in "the score")?? anyways, looks like a fun watch!

Agreed with vegasdanny, just a shots by shots steroid version of the french film "Pour elle" with a tons of mandatory sweeping city view. This remake looks so unimaginative, it's not even funny. Not liking it all, will pass...

Crowe is such a pain in the ass. I don't hate him, he's just borderline washed up. interesting characters in tow but it seemed lackluster. Sadly, it'll make a ton of money because of the names attached.

I was in... until that last shot ... lol Still looks good 😉

This looks pretty great to me, a thriller with some really fine actors. Crowe and Neeson together? Fantastic. Elizabeth Banks, Olivia Wilde, Brian Dennehy. I like the premise and finally a trailer that doesn't show the entire movie. This doesn't look anything like the cheesier Law Abiding Citizen, this one looks top notch all the way to me.

lol #15 yeah final shot is a bit corny....looks gripping though

Not sure I can get excited for Crowe in this the same way you kinda felt like Bulter was in the right in Citizen. They need to at least imply that she was setup by the police. As others stated the likely twist is that she really did do it. I'm on the fence.

this looked pretty sweet until the last 3 seconds.

Breaking his wife out of jail and run away together from the feds ; A kinder, gentler Bonnie & Clyde? Interesting concept, and Russell is very good in this "I Will Get Even With You Bastards" mode.

I happen to think that Russell Crowe is one of the top actors of this generation. Those that don't, OK....you can go to Nicholas Cage flicks. Also there's a flock of cartoons out there if you don't like remakes. There's something out there for everybody so it's not necessary to run down a great actor...some of us might think you show poor taste. cheers
