Gran Torino trailer online

GranTorino.jpgIt didn't take long for Clint Eastwood to hammer out a trailer for his new film Gran Torino, and there's no indication that this is anything but considered and polished.

His character has shades of some of his early western characters, and looks pretty damn full on, it looks pretty damn good all in all, and I'm downloading the high definition version to watch it again.

Clint Eastwood talked about the plot just the other day right here on Filmstalker, and so there's no need to cover that ground again.

The trailer for Gran Torino can be seen over at Apple Trailers [QT:iPod:S:M:L:480p:720p:1080p] through IESB.

There's not much of the car, but the rest of the trailer is looking good and Eastwood is looking great.



Wow, that looks great. Wanna see it.

Gran Torino is going to be another Clint Eastwood clsoing chapters of the American past along with his own movie past- Unforgiven closed the old west, - Gran Torino will close the Korean war and maybe the Vietnam War ( with the Afghanistan campaign becoming Vietnam psychosis part 2!!!!)- Eastwood is an iconic- all round visual entertainer- tackling all genres except heavy duty scifi/ horror- but the jury is out whether High Plains Drifter or its semi sequel Pale Rider would fit into the gothic ghost story genre- mind you even many of the spaghetti westerns seem to cross over into gothic horror-
Gran torino will be an emotional and thrilling character driven drama which again will be another feather in the hat for Eastwood.

Well said Doc. Louise and I were chatting the other day and we thought that Clint Eastwood would make for a great feature, and for some of the reasons you've just stated.

Interesting point about Pale Rider and High Plains Drifter. Both films, if made today, could well fall under thriller/horror, and actually that character for me feels just like the Gunslinger in Stephen King's stories of the same title.

It would be interesting to see Eastwood tackle that genre head on though, but I doubt he would. He loves the personal and the intimate, taking a huge epic story and pulling it down to the individual and the heart.

Wonderful talented man.
