 http://wwws.warnerbros.co.jp/troublewiththecurve/

 Japanese title is " Jinseino Tokutouseki "..... Special seat of life ?  ???

Here's what Google Translate makes of the Japanese-language synopsis:

Quote
SYNOPSIS

 Without regard to the family, his father has been living as a Major League scout. Was lending a hand to scout his last journey someone's eyesight is failing, my eyes began to dim, the only daughter of Mickey has continued to feel the bad blood between the father.

 Special seat of life and find at the end of each of which father-daughter trip that did not grow lost his wife, is trying to raise one Otokode.

 Last look of the actor and seemed visionary since "Gran Torino", to oversee the starring role in this film for the first time in four years Clint Eastwood continues to make a film with him nearly 20 years together, was recognized as the only disciple in life, Eastwood, Robert Lorenz heirs of DNA. Happiness from the bottom of my heart to those who see, heartwarming story of a father and daughter.

 November 23, 2012 Roadshow (Fri)

 Happiness from the bottom of my heart to those who see, heartwarming story of a father and daughter!

That title is really odd, though. Higashimori, does it have any possible relation to baseball? Other than maybe a spectator at the "baseball game" of life?

You would think they could have come up with the Japanese equivalent of "Trouble With the Curve" ... I know they have pitchers who throw great curveballs!

The Japanese titls translates to Special Seat of Life?  There is some dialogue in the trailer that has something to that effect ("I didn't want you to spend life in the cheap seats"--might not be an exact quote).

Japanese movie companies like to use words "jinsei(life)" or "Unmei(destiny)" for Movie titles.
There are a lot of movies titled jisei something or unmei something.
I do not think dialogue in trailer effects  on Japanese title.
I read bunch of tweets or blogs that says Japaneses title jinsei no tokutouseki(Special Seat of Life) is worst movie  title in 2012 movies.

I've started a new thread for "Reviews and Features in the Media." Any interviews with the director, cast and crew that appear from now on can go in that thread.

Thanks to AKA for posting links to two interviews with Robert Lorenz ... I've moved those posts into the new thread.

 " Jinseino Tokutouseki " is worst movie title in 2012 ?!!..... :-X  >:D

 ^^ That is true.....this is a typical Japanese title actually.. very old fashion!!  Because this movie is something about the general life?  The relationship between daughter and father on a baseball scene?   But I can understand that with something in the dialogue as Christoph pointed out ...though I feel a little unbecoming for the title of Eastwood's movie... ???  But I hope that it may be more appreciated that title after watching a movie! And I imagine that with such title, it must be very happy ending... ;)
In addition I found that original title itself is a little different......it can trouble my brain...... ???  It is not straight as Honkytonk Man, Gran Torino, J. Edger or many other titles...... ;)

Now that he's done making headlines at the Republican National Convention, Clint Eastwood is back to doing what he does best – making movies.

His latest, "Trouble with the Curve," hits theaters Friday, but if you act fast you won't have to wait that long.

OnMilwaukee.com has limited passes to a special screening of the big-screen baseball flick Monday, Sept. 17 at AMC Mayfair Mall in Wauwatosa. Tickets are first come, first served, and up to two can be downloaded per person.

The screening starts at 7 p.m., but get there early – seats are limited, too.

Download passes here.

On Box Office Mojo, they've estimated that Trouble with the Curve opened at number 3 with 4.1 million. Spots 1 and 2 belong to  House at the End of the Street at 4.64 million, and End of Watch at 4.6 million. I didn't figure there'd be any clear hits out of any of the movies, and was expecting it to be pretty close between most of the new movies.

It doesn't really surprise me that this appears to not be doing well at the box office. Eastwood's RNC performance probably alienated some people, and likely didn't help, but I think there's something larger at work here. Time will tell how this will be received, but I think the film Eastwood and Lorenz made is very different than what moviegoers might be expecting to see. This is not really a sports film, so the sports enthusiasts hoping to see that may be disappointed. It's also not in the vein of "Gran Torino" or "Million Dollar Baby," so the people hoping to see an awards-caliber prestige picture may also be disappointed. What this is is a hybrid. It has some comedy, it has some drama, it has flourishes of a sports film, but it's certainly not one in the classic sense. It's very difficult to categorize it. It's very nuanced, and nuance usually doesn't play well to a mass audience.
