Amber Heard is bringing the heat for McG's new thriller 3 Days to Kill, also starring Kevin Costner and Hailee Steinfeld. Costner's voice is more gravelly than ever as former "agency" assassin Ethan, whose worlds collide when he's put in charge of his teenage daughter (Steinfeld) for a few days and has to take on one last mission for his former company. Ethan has just found out that he has a fatal disease, and the only way he can get an experimental cure is to carry out the mission in question, which is basically lots of murdering. Thus begins a wild babysitting gig with Ethan juggling his daughter and his dangerous work life.
The plot of this movie sounds like a screwball comedy, but I'm actually rooting for McG to pull it off. I like that it's not a cut-and-dry action movie, and I think Steinfeld is great, but I'm not convinced that Heard has the shrewdness to play this femme fatale. We'll see when the movie opens on Feb. 21. In the meantime, check out the trailer below.
