Yeah, I like the first one much better as well... but I also like this one.  Will be interesting to see which one shows up in theaters.

My local theatre now has the "first" poster of TWTC up on their outside wall for one of their coming films.

Amy Adams was on the David Letterman Show last night. I was hopeful that she would be promoting Trouble with the Curve, but she promoted the film, The Master (2012).

That's kind of surprising since they come out the same day. But I'm sure she'll do some promotion for Trouble with the Curve too.

I've seen lots of previews for the movie in the past two days during programs and NFL games on ESPN.  I've seen a bunch of new quick scenes that I haven't seen before.  From all that I've seen to date, no doubt that Clint is going to have a ton of great lines in this.

Here's a short interview with Rob Lorenz, the director of this film. I didn't like the interview. The interviewer doesn't appear to really know how to interview people. She asks him what brought about Clint's return to acting, then before Lorenz has a chance to say anything, she jumps right in with her own ideas. "He wanted to act again, he liked the script, etc." What's the point of interviewing someone if you are going to interject your own answers to the questions you ask? This might work if you are looking to confront someone over something, and force them to address certain points, but it doesn't work in an informal, casual interview setting. I see this a lot, and it always annoys me.

I meant to post this earlier ... Amy Adams was interviewed in the "Fall Preview" issue of New York Magazine (cover date August 27-September 3, 2012). It's mostly about her other big role this fall, in Paul Thomas Anderson's The Master, but there is this:

Quote
“Amy is very private,” says Robert Lorenz, the director of this fall’s Trouble With the Curve, of one scene in which Adams lets Clint Eastwood have it in a diner for being an absentee dad. “I asked her during filming, which of her roles was the closest to the real Amy, and she said, ‘This one.’  She was definitely addressing some aspect of her personal life in the role.” Eastwood’s words to the director after the scene was finished: “You got the right girl.”
http://www.vulture.com/2012/08/amy-adams-the-master.html

From the same issue ... in the "Movies" section, under "And we're also anticipating ... "

Quote
Trouble With the Curve

Because Clint Eastwood is in full-curmudgeon mode as a nearly retired, visually impaired baseball scout surrounded by know-nothing young people (Amy Adams, Justin Timberlake) in desperate need of his cranky wisdom.

$100 is a lot of money to see the movie only a few days earlier. There are screenings in San Diego too, apparently, with one being today (Tuesday), but I have no idea how to get into them :(

The running time for the film is listed at 111 minutes on its IMBD page. This has been repeated elsewhere, so I assume its correct. This makes this Clint's shortest film since "Blood Work," which ran 110 minutes. "Gran Torino" ran 116 and "Million Dollar Baby" was 132 minutes.

This will apparently be closing the Tokyo Film Festival at the end of October. I find it very strange that Clint and Co have decided to bypass the film festival circuit here in the United States, where they can build buzz and hopefully awards talk, but are apparently participating in overseas markets. I wonder why that is. It doesn't make sense to me.

People do buy movie tickets overseas, too, you know. And baseball is very popular in Japan.

No harm in participating in overseas markets but I, too, am puzzled as to why the film festival circuit here has been overlooked.

The best explanation for this is probably because this isn't likely to garner Awards talk, so there is no reason to release it during the festivals because it probably isn't that type of film. I'm still holding out hope that it is, as I'd love to see Eastwood win Best Actor before he concludes his acting career, but we'll have to wait and see. I didn't know baseball was so popular in Japan. That's a new fact for me!

I'm happy to report that I'm going to be seeing this film later tonight in San Diego. I'll try and update the board about my thoughts after the screening.

I've been doing a lot of searching for advanced tickets online, and finally found a site. Tickets for today's screening were posted yesterday. If you're interested in seeing this film early, check here and see if tickets are listed for your area. The tickets are free: http://www.getscreening.com/free-movies-screening-tickets?id=tt2083383&title=Trouble_with_the_Curve&state=CA&city=San%20Diego

I'm probably going to have to skip my class tonight to get in, but I think I'm going to do it! This is not something I would typically do, but I feel like Clint is worth it! I am looking forward to seeing this!

Nice AKA, I'm very jealous indeed!

Keep an eye out for me if you'd be so kind. I think it is a montage shot of the "wonder kid" batting. I'm sitting right behind Clint.

Looks like you'll have to open up your review threads a little early KC.  :)

AKA, I'm sorry but  I would be very pleased with this information.  Participation Tokyo International Film Festival of "Trouble with the Curve" has great significance for Clint.  You will not know how Japanese is huge fans of Clint Eastwood and loves the baseball ( as KC mentioned that )? !!   Whatever Festival, Award or another, I hoped R.Lorenz and Clint will attend to the premier in Japan for "Trouble with the Curve"!!  
Participating in overseas markets ? No!! But it's because that is Japan!!  ;)
Clint and R.Lorenz already attended the world premier for "Letters from Iwo Jima" at Tokyo before the premier in US!! Then I'm sure that "Trouble with the Curve ' would be a great success in Japan!!   Also, I think that Clint's Japanese fans would welcome the opportunity to thank Clint who showed compassion for ' 3.11.2011' the great earthquake and tsunami in eastern Japan,  happened at just before the premier in Japan of " Hereafter " unfortunately!!..... if only Clint will participate in this Festival!.  :)
And more...  "YURUSAREZARUMONO" ( Unforgiven )· · · · Clint may be appear on the scene shooting in Hokkaido! ! And....... :D

 
Nice AKA, I'm very jealous indeed!

Looks like you'll have to open up your review threads a little early KC.  :)

And Aka, you are so lucky to go to see before everyone. Enjoy!!  :)
