Official Trailer for Clint Eastwood's 'Cry Macho' Film is a Must Watch
"You used to be strong… macho." "I used to be a lot of things, but I'm not now…" Warner Bros has finally unveiled the first official trailer for Clint Eastwood's latest film titled Cry Macho, directed by and starring Clint Eastwood. The script is an adaptation of N. Richard Nash's novel of the same name, and Eastwood isn't credited as a writer. He stars as a one-time rodeo star and washed-up horse breeder named Mike Milo. After he loses his wife and child, he sinks into an alcoholic depression. In 1978, he takes a job from an ex-boss to bring the man's young son home from Mexico and away from his alcoholic mother, but the journey is more challenging than expected. It also co-stars newcomer Eduardo Minett as Rafa, along with Dwight Yoakam, Natalia Traven, Fernanda Urrejola, and Horacio Garcia Rojas. Shot by DP Ben Davis (Doctor Strange, Three Billboards, Captain Marvel). Uh, my goodness this looks great! That last joke at the end throws it off a bit, but other than that this is excellent. What a stellar trailer - even better than expected.
