Here's the first trailer for Clint Eastwood's Jersey Boys

04.17.2014

It was interesting to hear that Clint Eastwood would be taking on a big screen adaptation of the musical JERSEY BOYS. The actor turned director hadn’t worked on a movie from this genre, but he did have a background of filming scripts based on true events. This one is no different. Sure, it’s about the beginning of the musical act THE FOUR SEASONS and their breakout star Frankie Valli, but it also sort of feels like GOODFELLAS minus the gangsters and debauchery.

As a fan of Eastwood and music biopics, I’m definitely digging it. Christopher Walken is also a huge plus.

”You wanna hear the real story? I’m the one you talk to.”

Synopsis:

Clint Eastwood's big screen version of the Tony Award-winning musical tells the story of the four young men from the wrong side of the tracks in New Jersey who came together to form the iconic '60s rock group The Four Seasons. Their trials and triumphs are accompanied by the hit songs that influenced a generation, and are now being embraced by a new generation of fans through the stage musical.

JERSEY BOYS hits theaters on June 20, 2014.

Well this movie will make my wife happy. I'd rather see Eastwood get back to films like Gran Torino or Letters From Iwo Jima

Loved the stage show and I'm very pleased they got John Lloyd Young again to play Frankie. This looks like a winner

Interesting...

This looks like a mix of That Thing You Do and Goodfellas...I will likely check it out because of Clint but otherwise probably would pass.

By the way I love That Thing You Do and feel like that is a tough movie to top when it comes to this topic during that era.

Can't wait for his next film, American Sniper with Bradley Cooper. That film is going to be terrific.

Personally this is my kind of movie. Gives me a feel of goodfellas. And @ JimThePariah, you're right he does only have a couple left in him so don't you think that means he should make what he wants?

With such little time left he's wasting his time and talent.

While this does look like a well made film and entertaining to some, this does not interest me in the slightest. He probably has 2 more films left in him tops, I hope he does something amazing next.

I enjoyed the stage musical, but probably would have liked it even more if I had a stronger affinity with the period and style of music made by Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons. This does look good, there's a Scorsese vibe which seems right for the material.

Based on a Tony winning musical with the same actor who won best actor as Frankie Valli. The show is surprisingly amazing and I have high hopes this will be great

Eastwood is easily in the top 5 of most overrated directors of all time. Unforgiving being his only great movie. Everything else is either mediocre or just bad.

RobKong, you got to his filmography before I could...very uninformed take on Eastwood's work in my opinion. But I never attack people for their opinion because that's just sanctimonious but I can say I absolutely do not agree 1% that Clint Eastwood is overrated...he is underrated if anything when it comes to his storytelling and his eye for framing a scene.
