Gran Torino - Now That's A Poster

UPDATE! Trailer is online! Check it out at Apple Trailers. Have to say - awesome trailer. This is Clint's first turn in front of the camera since Million Dollar Baby and he hasn't missed a beat. With a permanent hard eyed squint and a growly voice, he's just as Bad-Ass at 78 as he was as Dirty Harry or the Man With No Name. Can't wait to see this.


I'll have to say that the synopsis for Clint Eastwood's next movie, Gran Torino, didn't really grab my attention. Then I saw this poster online today. Consider attention grabbed. Most movie posters these days are floating heads and big fonts with no style. This however, is a simple poster that pretty much says "don't mess with Clint's car. Ever."

Disgruntled Korean War vet Walt Kowalski (Eastwood) sets out to reform his neighbor, a young Hmong teenager, who tried to steal Kowalski's prized possesion: his 1972 Gran Torino.
