Release date for the UK has been added at imdb. Still no Australian date though.  >:(

Crazy leaving the UK release date so late, withit being awards season there will be loads of screeners available for download by the time it hits the screens here.  :(

Think also of Al Pacino in sent of a woman (up against Clint in Unforgiven!)

Apparently Anthony Langhella is a strong contender for Frost/Nixon... but there's a long way to go yet.

And yes, from the trailer it may not look like Oscar material, but no doubt the action elements have been emphasised and the more philisophical race stuff downplayed.

Yes, I'm looking forward to Clint kicking arse again, but I would also like to see the Best Actor box "ticked", seems like unfinished business to me. :)

OK, this is perhaps premature, but who are the other contenders for the Best Actor Oscar this year?

No doubt Clint's performance will be fantastic, but in any case I would say that his age/career/fact that he hasn't won a (non-honorary) acting Oscar would surely make him a strong contender with the Academy's voters.

This looks fantastic, I can't remember the last time I was as excited about a new Clint film.

The early reports about the story (Clint as a racist who befriends a kid) sounded a bit boring, but it is clear that these were wide of the mark.

In fact, it is now easy to see where the Dirty Harry rumours came from, as it seems that this could have easily been changed slightly to make it an ageing Harry defending his community.

Too cool, great pic.

We always assumed Clint didn't want to eat alone and invited a script girl or something to join him -- just a friendly gesture toward someone who had been helpful to him on the set.

Yeah, riiiggghht.  ;)

"Bill McInney Sings Love Songs From Antri", lol, is this for real??!!

I wonder what he has to say about Burt Reynolds' allegations about the filming of "that" scene in Deliverance...

Worth catching Mark Knopfler live, and hearing his solo records. I actually prefer them to the Dire Straits stuff.

Morricone is a myth for Knopfler

Not sure what you mean by that?

Mark Knopfler and Clint are my two heros in life. I've been lucky enough to meet Mr Knopfler several times.

I guess I'll never have the chance to meet Mr Eastwood.  :-[

MK has said lots of times that Ennio Morricone and the Spaghetti western soundtracks in particular are a big inspiration to him.

Not sure if you have ever come across the Google Trends site before, basically it provides data on how many people have searched for a specific term on Google.

I thought it would be fun to compare the number of searches for Clint as compared to a few other pupular actors. Here are my results, try it yourself, you can compare anybody:

Or for a sad indictment of today's society...

Not a problem Hammerhead, it is only the film's original soundtrack !!

Who needs that?

Philo .

I wonder if these soundtracks have been remixed or if we will still have the infamous apple "bonk" and the missing "Is this your case?" from Magnum Force?

From that Guardian interview, lol.

But there's one film project on the cards that might interest Spike Lee. Eastwood's next project, The Human Factor, is about Nelson Mandela and how he used the country's victory in the 1995 Rugby World Cup as a means of fostering national unity. Will he be sticking with the historical record on that one? He laughs. "Yeah, I'm not going to make Nelson Mandela a white guy."


And another, which sadly confirms... no mono soundtrack.  :(

Sorry Philo!
