Those exclamation point lovers over at Yahoo! Movies! have released the first clip from The Next Three Days. In the clip ‘Damon Pennington (Liam Neeson) instructs John Brennan (Russell Crowe) on how to plan a prison break.’ I attended a screening for this film last week, however considering I signed a non disclosure embargo these are my thoughts on the film_______________________________very________Russell Crowe____________________!

The Next Three Days is a remake of the French thriller ”Anything for Her” from writer/director Paul Haggis. After winning the Best Picture Oscar for Crash five years ago, Haggis directed In the Valley of Elah, and also co-wrote both Clint Eastwood’s Flags of Our Fathers and Letters from Iwo Jima, as well as the last two Bond pictures. The Next Three Days features an outstanding cast in Russell Crowe, Elizabeth Banks, Olivia Wilde, Liam Neeson, Jonathan Tucker, Brian Dennehy, RZA and Sean Huze. The Next Three Days is set for release in the US on November 19, and the UK January 7, 2011.

Life seems perfect for John Brennan until his wife, Lara, is arrested for a gruesome murder she says she didn’t commit. Three years into her sentence, John is struggling to hold his family together, raising their son and teaching at college while he pursues every means available to prove her innocence. With the rejection of their final appeal, Lara becomes suicidal and John decides there is only one possible, bearable solution: to break his wife out of prison. Refusing to be deterred by impossible odds or his own inexperience, John devises an elaborate escape plot and plunges into a dangerous and unfamiliar world, ultimately risking everything for the woman he loves.
