Just a few weeks ago we hadn’t seen anything regarding the next drama featuring Clint Eastwood, but now the marketing influx is kicking up. Following a poster that debuted earlier today, we now have a second trailer and four TV spots for Robert Lorenz‘s baseball drama Trouble With the Curve, following baseball scout (Eastwood), who is tasked with looking at a hot young prospect.

These various looks play up Eastwood’s Gran Torino-esque old man crankiness, as well as the relationship with his daughter.

Check out all the footage below.
Trouble with the Curve arrives on September 21st.

In theaters now, Ivan Reitman‘s new film, Draft Day, does quite a bit with a hard subject. Part of that is the writing, but a lot of the success on screen is due to the amassing of talent Reitman manages and the flash he implants into ordinary scenes. The life of a GM during a tumultuous and pressure-packed [...]
