Clint Eastwood returns to the big screen in Trouble with the Curve for the first time since 2008’s Gran Torino, and he’s joined by a brilliant cast headed up by Amy Adams and Justin Timberlake.
The film will be released in US theatres this Friday, and now Warner Bros. have debuted two new TV spots, along with a new UK poster (which is slightly different to the international poster that surfaced last week).
“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 could 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. Mickey has never been close to her father, who was ill-equipped to be a single parent after the death of his wife. Even now, in the rare moments they share, he is too easily distracted by what Mickey assumes is his first love: the game.
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.”
Starring alongside the leading trio will be John Goodman, Matthew Lillard, Robert Patrick, and newcomer Joe Massingill.
Robert Lorenz, Eastwood’s long-time producing partner/second assistant director, makes his feature directorial debut, directing from a script by newcomer Randy Brown.
Trouble with the Curve will be released in the US this Friday, 21st September, followed by a later release here in the UK on 30th November, and you can find the film on Facebook here if you’re reading this in the US, along with its UK Facebook here. For now, the new TV spots for the film, along with the UK poster, which you can click to enlarge.
