I have mixed feelings about this decision actually. at one hand, Cry Macho is not better positioned for a successful box office; it was previously set for Oct.22 against movies like Last Night in Soho, French Dispatch and Jackass4. But now, Cry Macho can claim first spot of box office for at least one week. at other hand, September release I think lowers movie's award chances. I hope I am wrong. As deadline reported, Cry Macho could land in either TIFF, Venice Film Festival, or Telluride.

First of all, Warners wanted to make the box office competition easier for Dune, which is a big budget film.
Then, that decision does not seem to have something to do with the qualities of Cry Macho.
Moreover, the month of September still makes part of the awards season.
If Cry Macho gets some great reviews, it will be noticed by Oscars voters for sure.
Now, we can expect a trailer sooner, probably when Space Jam will be released.

WB is a little behind schedule for releasing this based on when trailers for Eastwood's  most recent films have been released, but not overly so. I never thought it would be released with "Space Jam," since that doesn't have an overlapping audience with "Cry Macho." Clint has rarely released trailers 3-4 months early like many other films do. I think this is likely an indication that "Cry Macho" probably isn't an Oscar film, since if it were, I think they'd want to publicize it earlier, and have it play at one of the festivals, and it doesn't appear that will be happening. But, I never thought it would be, so that doesn't really bother much.

 I expect Cry Macho to be one of Eastwood's small personal films. I'm not expecting a 100 mill performance. If the movie gets a reaction like Gran Torino that would be tremendous, but this movie is based on a very obscure book which actually is being re-released on September 14 in paperback. I'm hoping its a movie worth seeing.

Yeah, I think so too.  Maybe it will be another older/younger relationship picture like A Perfect World, Million Dollar Baby, or Honkytonk Man.  One thing we can be sure of, Clint will have a lot of his usual great one-liners.  I also love the Dwight Yoakam casting.

Yeah I like the Yoakam casting too, but I'm in the complete minority on this but I'm hoping it's not another Perfect World which I found to be a overrated bore....

And I've always thought that A Perfect World was a highly underrated movie with Costner (as well as the kid) so good in that role.  I will say that I almost wish Clint had not been in that movie, just directed it.  I don't know much about the book Cry Macho but from what I read, the main character in the book is 35 years old...

I think "A Perfect World" is one of his best movies, and am also happy he acted in it. But it is a much slower paced film, and more of a Costner starring vehicle than an Eastwood one, so I understand why its not a favorite for some Eastwood fans.

If we don't get this today, I don't think this is coming out Sep. 17th. I think the release date will be pushed back. Even for Eastwood, I don't recall any recent films where the trailer was released as few as 6 weeks in advance. A delay will be sad since I've really been looking forward to seeing this on the 17th.

Yeah. I got that feeling too. this might be the only reasonable explanation.

HBO Max has a list of some upcoming theatrical/HBO Max releases, and Cry Macho isn't currently listed in that. They do list a movie coming out September 10 and another October 1. I don't think that's an official thing, of course, but I do wonder if the date could be changed since it's not listed there.

This link from HBO max has it listed on Sept 17:

Clink on the link and then scroll down to Sept 17.

Okay, there it is. O0 I was going to a page within my currently inactive account where it doesn't list it yet. Maybe because there's no trailer yet.

Cry Macho and Matrix 4 are the two Warner Bros. films of 2021 whose trailers are still waited.

Maybe I repeat myself but generally, the trailers for the last Clint films are released about two months before the US release of the films.
So, yes, Cry Macho trailer seems to be late. On the other hand, I have the feeling that since that HBO Max formula, the rules have changed about the trailers.
At this point, nothing says that Cry Macho will not be released on September 17 in the USA. So, I am still optimistic.
The fact that the book is re-released on September 14 in paperback seems to be a good indicator.
Who knows ? Maybe we will see the trailer within four days, when The Suicide Squad will be released or within two weeks, when Reminiscence will be released.
We have to be patient. Cry Macho seems to be a small picture on the paper for sure. I just want to see a good film and a good acting performance by Clint.
If it had the same qualities of Honkytonk Man, A Perfect World or Gran Torino, it would be great.
I think that Clint is at his best when he deals with small pictures, simple stories but strong characters.
To me, the Oscars are secondary. Of course, if Cry Macho got some nominations, I would be so happy for Clint.
As I said, I am optimistic about that film.
