This release date does indicate to me confidence in the quality of the movie. In my opinion, this is being done for one of two reasons, and I don't know which one fits.

Clint and Warner Bros have confidence in the film and want to release it in the Fall because they think it has the potential to be popular with audiences and want to maximize the box office potential for the movie by releasing it at a time when theaters are closer to fully open. Or, Clint and Warners think this could have Oscar potential and want to release it during the classic widow for Oscar-calibre films.

"The Mule" was released in December of 2018, and that was done because of box office potential, so it's not a foregone conclusion that this is being done to compete for Oscars. But, this is a pretty long time to hold the film given that it is likely already completed, or will be within the next few months. There's a reason that they're deciding to release it in October. If Warners wasn't happy with it, they'd likely want to release it as soon as it was completed. They're clearly not doing that.

I'm confident in the movie because of  screenwriter Nick Schenk(Gran Torino, The Mule) and, thanks god, it's not a real story again.
Of course, some ones were pretty good movies(Sully, The Mule)  or very good ones(Richard Jewell, American Sniper) but i was fed up with,personnaly.I think that original stories or novel adaptations are more creative, Reality can be boring sometimes.

Let's face it,  Clint is very old, we don't know for how many years  he will be able to direct,...  :-[ I hope he Will spend his last directing years to beloved projects and/or never achieved ones(if he got one of those)   O0

 And for christ sake, a Last western, even if many consider Unforgiven  unsurpassed(rightfully) ...  :D

Though it is too soon for any speculation, I agree with the fact that October 22 is a pretty good release date for the Oscars voters consideration.
Of course, that does not mean that Cry Macho will be an Oscar contender.
On the other hand, why did Warner Bros decide to release it on October 22, if it has no Oscar potential ?
Anyway, it would be great if Clint got an Oscar nomination for Best Actor at least :)

That would be a 16 year-old dream come true again :) Award season is nothing but boring for me if there is no Clint in it.

I agree with you AKA23. the surprising thing is that WB has decided to release Cry Macho after Dune, maybe one of WB's most awardY film of 2021. Only 2 films are left to be released after Cry Macho by WB: King Richard and Matrix4.

Dune looks like a blockbuster with some artistic qualities, like Blade Runner 2049 or Mad Max: Fury Road.
Matrix 4 could have that same profile.
However, this type of films rarely get anything else than some awards in the technical department.
On the paper, Dune seems one of the best Oscars hopes for Warner Bros next year, with Cry Macho and King Richard.

Oscar worthy or not, Cry Macho will be a must-see for all the movie goers who admire Clint Eastwood films and who follow his career for a long time.
The Mule and Gran Torino are great films but Cry Macho looks very special. Very intriguing.

I just happened to see the release date today for Cry Macho, but it doesn't surprise me that it was reported here the other day when it was announced (has it really been two days since I'd been on the board? :D ;D). Hopefully theaters across the country will be open by then.

Though I'll admit that HBO Max will be tempting for this movie. Maybe once we get a trailer I'll know what I want to do there.

Cry Macho "completed" on IMDb and rated pg-13 "for language and thematic elements".   ;)

Those thematic elements may be about violence, delinquency or sexual issue

This year is the 50th anniversary of "Play Misty for Me" , Clint's directorial debut, which premiered on 20th October 1971.
"Cry Macho", released on 22nd October, 2021 will mark a milestone for Clint... 50 years as a motion picture director.
Did this influence the release date for the new movie and will the golden anniversary be employed in the marketing of "Cry Macho"?
Thoughts?

All on account of pulling a trigger.

Maybe but I don?t think so. Does Clint have a say when a film gets released? My understanding was he films what he wants then hands it over to Warner Bros and it?s the execs who decide when to release it.

Macpherson, I didn't know that "Play Misty for Me" was released in October, so good catch that it would be Eastwood's 50th anniversary as a director. Like SK, I feel like this is probably a coincidence. Since Eastwood doesn't really like to celebrate his birthday, according to his kids, and also doesn't seem to like to draw a lot of attention to himself generally, preferring to let the work speak for itself, I feel like he probably wouldn't want to reference his 50th anniversary in promotional material for "Cry Macho."

I can recall an interview from one of WB's executives in which he was so specific on the issue of Clint Eastwood films that 'it's always when and where Clint says."

Personally I could care less if Eastwood's film is released in any month or time because it can be Oscar worthy. Hollywood is so ruined that I don't see Eastwood ever being nominated for anything ever again. At this point in Eastwood's life and career I'm happy the guy is still around and can make a movie which I hope I can enjoy. The dude is going to be 91 in a month and has done everything that no one will ever achieve in that dopey town. If Eastwood can make a movie a year until he can't anymore that's good enough for me. Who cares about awards ...

Absolutely. I agree with you, Perry.
Clint has nothing to prove in movie business for a long time. He is just lucky to keep working as long as he can.
He is still interested in making movies. That is amazing and quite unprecedented.
I just hope that Cry Macho will be a good movie, if not a great one.
However, if Cry Macho had to be nominated at the next Oscars, it would be fine. Even if Clint does not need Oscars.
Some days ago, Anthony Hopkins won his second Best Actor Oscar, 29 years after his first one.
Anthony Hopkins did not need that second Oscar, and he said that he did not expect to win it, but it was great for him.
