has arrived online, in which Kevin Costner sets about trying to revive the Cleveland Browns with some expert wheeler-dealing.
Costner plays the team’s general manager on the day of the NFL draft, a chaotic, horse-trading extravaganza, in which a club’s fortunes can be drastically rejuvenated in one fell swoop.

Just how appealing the intricacies of Draft Day prove to be to non-NFL aficionados remains to be seen, but there’s enough in the trailer to suggest this might tickle the fancy of your average sports movie fan.
Directed by Ivan Reitman and co-starring Jennifer Garner, Frank Langella and Denis Leary, Draft Day will open in the US on 11 April 2014, with a UK date to be confirmed.
