Mark September 2nd Off as ‘Draft Day’ on Your Blu-ray Calendar!

Draft Day TNI’m kind of bittersweet in regards to this one.  On one hand I am looking forward to finally seeing this one after missing all the press screenings for it, but I know it’s going to make me very homesick.  It seems like when I left Cleveland last year it all the sudden began thriving.  Who knows?  Maybe I have been the professional sports jinx for the city the past 39 years.  All I know is Hollywood has tapped that town when the weather is at its most cooperative, most notably the summer months with productions such as the recent one Criminal Activities to really huge ones such as the last Captain America flick.  Honestly, all I really care about is seeing my friends Robert Graziosi and Richard Hunter in here and maybe see what Garner is up to as well.  I’m just joshing you!  I’m really looking forward to finally seeing this.  So if you’re interested, check out the full press release below from Lionsgate Home Entertainment.

It’s NFL Draft Day. A day that can change the lives of athletes and the fortunes of football teams forever. After pulling off a blockbuster trade, General Manager Sonny Weaver Jr. (Costner) controls the #1 pick. Up against fan pressure, an ambitious owner (Langella) and a hard-nosed coach (Leary), Sonny faces the biggest decision of his life. Should he go with the consensus #1 pick or trust his instincts and risk losing it all?
