Are you ready to see Russell Crowe bust a cap in someone’s ass? It’s been a long time since we seen that revenge seeking version of the actor on the big screen (Robin Hood just didn’t cut it). Luckily for us, the theatrical trailer for his new film The Next Three Days has been released on Yahoo and we get to see a bit of the old Russell. Check out the trailer below…

The film centers on a woman (Elizabeth Banks) who’s imprisoned for a murder she claims she didn’t commit and her college professor husband (Crowe) who decides to break her out. The Next Three Days co-stars Liam Neeson, whose character advises Crowe on how to pull off a successful escape, Brian Dennehy who plays Crowe’s father, and Olivia Wilde who stars as a young mother who befriends his character.

The most refreshing thing about this trailer is Banks’ portrayal as the wrongly convicted wife. She’s so good in comedic roles that sometimes it’s easy to forget that she can pull off dramatic parts as well. This is a nice change of pace for her.

The Next Three Days is directed by Oscar winner Paul Haggis and is scheduled to hit theaters on November 19th.
