The year just doesn’t feel complete without a Clint Eastwood movie.
Seems like just yesterday this movie was even announced, let alone started production. Oh wait, this film literally starting filming in June and we already have a trailer for it. Clint Eastwood seriously doesn’t mess around when it comes to banging out his production schedule. When you think about it, it’s quite something having a movie trailer come out and have this much footage only 3 months after it’s start date.
The latest Eastwood flick, follows Richard Jewell, the hero of the 1996 Atlanta Bombings. Based on the incredible true story, once again, the film seems intriguing enough, and it’s always fascinating to see a man that is Eastwood’s age, pump out a film each year, remarkable really.
Chalked full of talented people, Jon Hamm, Olivia Wilde, Sam Rockwell, Kathy Bates and Paul Walter Hauser, playing the lead role. Not completely a household name yet, but I loved him in I Tonya and he’s been taking great roles ever since.
The thing about most of Eastwood’s films is you never really know what you’re going to get. Since he makes a movie every year it can be difficult to stay consistent, but whenever Jon Hamm is playing a hard nosed cop, I’m all in. I think this looks better than last years, The Mule.
