Why is Costner in so many movies lately?  Because he was lauded for his role as Superman's Earth Dad in the box office hit
Man of Steel last year.

This is probably a common answer but maybe because he realised that after he'd been starring in films meant for direct-to-DVD or made-for-TV, people would forget about him and so, puts him in the need for more big roles.

That and... MONEY.

What about Hatfields and McCoys?
Elizabeth Hartman and Judith Barsi are more talented and beautiful than Scarlett Johansson and Chloe Grace Moretz. Fact.

There are already 2 reviews of Draft Day on Rotten Tomatoes: One positive, and one negative.  

Let's see how this ends up...

Its at a Rotten Rating right now. Will there be an Official Forum on this?

RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: It's back to being rated "Fresh," and has stayed above 50% most of the time (R.T. LINK) so DRAFT DAY is not an obvious RAZZIE® Target. 

Besides, this Member-Started discussion is already in place, and getting a fair amount of postings...

Consensus:

"It's perfectly pleasant for sports buffs and Costner fans, but overall, Draft Day lives down to its title by relying too heavily on the sort of by-the-numbers storytelling that only a statistician could love."

I'd say at least consider it for a few acting nominations.

I want him in great movies.  He can act.  I've seen him speak some of the worst lines ever written convincingly well.  It's sad to see him do so-so to bad movies for the paycheck.

As for so-so movies, it looks like that's what Draft Day is, maybe even a little better, based on over 100 reviews on Rotten Tomatoes currently totaling a 63%.  

As for selling tickets, domestically, Draft Day pulled in an estimated $3.5 million plus on Friday according to Box Office Mojo.  This isn't great box office to put it kindly.  We'll see if it looks like it can at least pay the bills by the end of the weekend.

It looks like this one isn't bad enough for us, which is a good thing.

I just feel Kevin Costner deserves better than this.
