This Action-Packed Russell Crowe Flick Just Hit Netflix’s Top 10 & We Can Totally See Why

Better clear your schedule, because Netflix just added another must-watch flick to its top-rated section.

Introducing The Next Three Days, which stars Russell Crowe and Elizabeth Banks. Although it originally premiered back in 2010, the film has now landed a highly coveted spot on Netflix’s list of most-watched movies. (It’s currently ranked behind Homefront, White Tiger, Cut Throat City, The Vanished and Outside the Wire.)

The Next Three Days tells the story of the Brennan family, whose lives are turned upside down when Lara (Banks) is convicted of murder. After three years of claiming innocence, her husband, John (Crowe), decides to take matters into his own hands in an attempt to provide a better future for their son. When all else fails, John is left with only one option: get Lara out of prison, no matter the cost.

In addition to Crowe and Banks, the movie also stars Liam Neeson (Damon), Olivia Wilde (Nicole), Jason Beghe (Detective Quinn), Aisha Hinds (Detective Collero), Michael Buie (Mick), Moran Atias (Erit), Ty Simpkins (Luke), Daniel Stern (Meyer) and Remy Nozik (Jenna).

The Next Three Days was directed by Paul Haggis (Walker). He also wrote the screenplay alongside Fred Cavayé (Anything for Her) and Guillaume Lemans (A Breath Away). Anthony Katagas (12 Years a Slave), Wolfgang Hammer (Abduction) and Agnès Mentre (Wind River) served as executive producers.
