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

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, Gus—who can tell a pitch just by the crack of the bat—refuses 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 discoveries—revealing long-held truths about their past and present that could change their future.
