Clint Eastwood watches a game on this poster for Trouble With The Curve

Aug. 10, 2012by: Niki Stephens

Even though I know most of you like Clint Eastwood, I was sort of surprised that there was such a good response to the trailer for TROUBLE WITH THE CURVE. I guess I was ready for the negativity since when I was looking around there were quite a few people with the "I'll wait til DVD" response. Maybe I was reading into it too much. I am happy to see Eastwood in any role.

The first poster for the film is just a moment of quiet reflection while Gus Lobel takes in a game/training. I don't often like the posters that the studios use, but this one is actually nice. Also, can you believe that Eastwood is 82? It always blows my mind, especially right after watching something like MAGNUM FORCE or PLAY MISTY FOR ME.

Gus Lobel (Clint Eastwood) has been one of the best scouts in baseball for decades, but, despite his efforts to hide it, age is starting to catch up with him. Nevertheless, Guswho can tell a pitch just by the crack of the batrefuses to be benched for what may be the final innings of his career. He may not have a choice. The front office of the Atlanta Braves is starting to question his judgment, especially with the country's hottest batting phenom on deck for the draft. The one person who might be able to help is also the one person Gus would never ask: his daughter, Mickey (Amy Adams), an associate at a high-powered Atlanta law firm whose drive and ambition has put her on the fast track to becoming partner. Against her better judgment, and over Gus's objections, Mickey joins him on his latest scouting trip to North Carolina, jeopardizing her own career to save his. Forced to spend time together for the first time in years, each makes new discoveriesrevealing long-held truths about their past and present that could change their future.

Yeah well Clint Eastwood for some reason gets unwavering support on JoBlo, no matter how crappy his projects get. "Gran Torino" remains the worst well-receieved film I've EVER seen, and the trailer for this looked almost as bad. The guy just can't act anymore. Playing a 'hardened old man' (which he is) may be incredibly impressive to a lot of people on here, but it's no different then Seth Rogen constantly playing a fat stoner or Al Pacino playing Al Pacino, yet they get killed for their film

Anyway, this looks like a surefire winner for "blandest movie of the year", what with the incredibly bland trailer , made-for-Lifetime TV-plot, and now this snooze-inducing poster.

I thought Clint retired from acting with Gran Torino?
Either way the poster is a simple composition and in all honesty a pretty generic still image and overall layout. I wonder how many similar looking posters are released each year. Still, it beats the old floating head stuff.
