At least, now we can have the certainty that Juror #2 is really completed.
Unlike most of Warner Bros films to be released this year, Juror #2 has no trailer and no poster online yet.
However, I would expect to see a trailer this summer. Or maybe, on Clint birthday, who knows?
About the release date, it will likely happen this fall. What do you think?

we are on the same page here. I also believe that a fall release is most likely. If the Variety report was correct and WB is "thrilled" by the movie, then giving it an award-friendly release date would make sense.

Actually, according to Robert Lorenz, Clint made some pictures which were not passion projects but kept him busy. Among those pictures, Robert Lorenz quoted Blood Work and Jersey Boys. Some film critics thought that Jersey Boys would have been a better fit for Martin Scorsese, since it is about some Italian American guys which were linked to the mob. Even Joe Pesci was in the story.

I agree with you, AKA23: Clint wanted to make a musical. He was a little frustrated that A Star Is Born did not come to fruition when he was involved in. Then, he decided to make Jersey Boys instead.

I enjoyed the film, although it is not among his best, because I found it quite refreshing, after some serious dramas like J. Edgar, Hereafter or Invictus. I have seen the play in the West End area of London, England, nearly one year after the film was released. I enjoyed the play which was joyfuller than the film. I noticed that one particular song which I like was missing in the film: that song is Beggin. Actually, the song scene was shot but not included in the final cut. Frankie Valli and Tommy DeVito were not particularly happy with the film. Tommy DeVito was pissed off by the way he was depicted in the film.

In my opinion, among all the biopics Clint has made, Bird is the best one. And that was really a passion project for Clint.

The play was fun but I found the film too shiny, flat and boring..

I haven't seen the play, but I do agree on the movie. If the reason he did "Jersey Boys" is because he was committed to doing a musical, I think "A Star is Born" would have been a much better musical for Clint to direct. I did very much enjoy Bradley Cooper's version, but I think "A Star is Born" both from a story and thematic perspective and from a musical perspective would have been a better fit for Clint Eastwood. "Jersey Boys" came across as being made by someone who didn't love the music, which Clint himself admitted in interviews, that the style of music that "The Four Seasons" did was something he wasn't a huge fan of at the time. In my opinion, it showed that the didn't have a passion for it. The music was not front and center in the film, and the story just wasn't compelling without the added benefit of the music being prominently featured. The internal issues the band had and the drug issues and family dysfunctions that were depicted have been seen many other times before in better films. Additionally, although they had the singing talent, having the stage actors do the film wasn't a great choice because none of them had the screen presence that would really have made the film shine.

Interestingly, Frankie Vallie has spoken in interviews about how he hated the way the music was done in the film, and that he actually "fixed" the musical arrangements himself and submitted them to Clint. He said Clint refused to use his version. He also has spoken about how he didn't like the movie. I assume this story is true, as it would be an odd thing for him to make up, and there isn't a benefit to him doing so, and I wonder why Clint wouldn't take the advice of the originator of the music when making the movie.

It was 10 years ago today that my wife and I saw Jersey Boys on Broadway.  8) 8) 8)

Did the play help you to appreciate the film?

Wow, I wouldn't have expected the movie to get a rating so soon. I wonder when this is going to be released.
