Check These Out: Two Great TV Spots for Gran Torino

November 30, 2008

Gran Torino TV Spots

Remember those TV spots for Clint Eastwood's Gran Torino that I mentioned in my Oscar article? Here they are. Warner Brothers recently debuted two short TV spots for Gran Torino and we have both of them for your viewing below. The first one in particular I think really shows that this could be a big Oscar contender. Watching that one we're finally able get a sense of what the full story will be about and how the emotions and characters will play out. I really think there's a lot more depth to this than we got in the first trailer and these are just proof that there is more there. Take a look and let us know what you think!

Watch the first new TV spot for Gran Torino:

Gran Torino is directed by the legendary Clint Eastwood, of Mystic River, Million Dollar Baby, Flags of Our Fathers, Letters from Iwo Jima, and Changeling. The screenplay was written by newcomer Nick Schenk (I Shot Myself) with story assistance from first-timer Dave Johannson. Warner Brothers has scheduled a limited December 17th release for Gran Torino, which puts Eastwood and company into Oscar consideration again. Will audiences be able to appreciate two Eastwood films in one year?
