CBS Films has provided ComingSoon.net with the trailer for Extraordinary Measures, starring Harrison Ford, Brendan Fraser, Keri Russell and Courtney B. Vance.
The Tom Vaughan-directed drama is inspired by the true story of John Crowley, a man who defied conventional wisdom and great odds, and risked his family’s future to pursue a cure for his children’s life threatening disease.
From his working class roots, John Crowley (Fraser) has finally begun to taste success in corporate America. Supported by his beautiful wife Aileen (Russell) and their three children, John is on the fast track. But just as his career is taking off, Crowley walks away from it all when his two youngest children, Megan and Patrick, are diagnosed with a fatal disease. With Aileen by his side, harnessing all of his skill and determination, Crowley teams up with a brilliant, but unappreciated and unconventional scientist, Dr. Robert Stonehill (Harrison Ford). Together they form a bio-tech company focused on developing a life-saving drug. One driven to prove himself and his theories, the other by a chance to save his children, this unlikely alliance eventually develops into mutual respect as they battle the medical and business establishments in a fight against the system and time.
