At this point I’m not entirely sure who Costner is trying to kill, or why he wants them dead, but apparently he only has 3 days to do it. This is the only trailer I’ve seen thus far but here’s what I’ve gathered:
- Costner is some kind of secret agent, possibly retired.
- His daughter (Hailee Steinfeld) is nvolved with a soccer player, not football, soccer!
- Costner doesn’t care for this guy, probably because he plays soccer, but it could also be that he’s dating his daughter.
- Apparently Costner now has to kill someone.
Now I know that’s pretty vague, but I think we can kind of see where this is going. I personally think it’s going to be a Taken ripoff. With Taken 3 right around the corner why not ride on it’s coat tails? I don’t like the practice, but Hollywood sure does like to do it a lot.
Part of me is really glad that Costner is back in a leading role, but I personally predict that 3 Days to Kill is going to be a flop. What say you?
