Gran Torino Poster

10.23.2008
Clint Eastwood conitnues to be one of the most prolific senior citizens in Hollywood. His film THE CHANGELING hasn't even been released yet, and already hype has started building around his next directorial effort, in which he plays the lead as well, called GRAN TORINO. In it he plays Walt Kowalski, a disgruntled racist Korean War vet who attempts to reform his neighbor, a young Hmong immigrant teenage neighbor (introducing Bee Vang), who, as part of a gang initiation, tried to steal Kowalski’s prized possession: his 1972 Gran Torino. The film is being fast tracked for awards consideration, which means that Eastwood may have a shot at an acting nomination, as well as two directing nods. Eat your heart out Clooney. Check out the poster for GRAN TORINO below.

More of a "Get off my goddamn lawn" Eastwood.
He does a very convincing Mean Old Man nowadays.

I stand corrected.

If he can manage to get them both out in time I wouldn't be surprised if he did get double nominated, considering how much the academy seems to like him. Oh yeah, and the fact that he's one of the best best directors working today.

How does this sound like Apt Pupil? Not even in the same ball park.


Must get under Spike Lee's skin that Clint is directing a Nelson Mandela biopic. I can hear Spike sniveling already.

Actually, he is correct. You can not get nominated for Best Actor/Actress twice in the same year, but you can for Director (see Soderbergh, Steven).

Yes, this poster is awesome.

I like Eastwood immensely both as an actor and a director, to be honest though I'm not too excited for Changeling. This on the other hand already has me stoked.

Oh, I believe Barna made a slight goof. You can only be nominated once in an Oscar category in a given year. Meaning even if this and Human Factor both come out next year Eastwood can only get nominated for one of them. Although I think you might be able to get double nominated in the Golden Golbes...

NICE.

I can't stop respecting this guy. Can't wait for CHANGELING and now this one too. AWESOME.

CLOONEY must go in the beach with his drink and day dream a masterpiece he always wanted to be part of.

Kowalski?

Kowalski? That can't be just a coincidence. And is that poster real? I could definitely mistake that for an Eastwood action movie.
