Four time Oscar winner Clint Eastwood shines in the first trailer for Robert Lorenz’s Trouble with the Curve. I have to admit I’ve been somewhat skeptical of another nomination coming for Eastwood’s performance, which would be his third for acting – his first since Million Dollar Baby (2004), but after seeing the trailer I’m liking his odds a whole lot more. Trouble with the Curve looks to be more than just another sports film, as the trailer hints at it also being both a romantic/comedy (between Amy Adams and Justin Timberlake) and a father/daughter family drama. There seems to be a whole lot of emotion (that I wasn’t expecting) coming from this little trailer, and it looks as if we have another film to start getting excited about. Eastwood plays an aging scout suffering from vision problems whose daughter (Adams) tags along on a long road trip to act as his eyes while he does his thing, a skill based on years of intuition and gut instinct. Trouble with the Curve also stars John Goodman and Robert Patrick, and will hit theatres September 28th.
