Clint Eastwood stars in first trailer for Trouble With The Curve: watch now

It seemed as though he had all but retired after Gran Torino back in 2008, but Clint Eastwood is back on the big screen once more in baseball drama Trouble With The Curve , the first trailer for which has just arrived online.

Eastwood plays a grizzled old baseball scout whose body is beginning to fail him in his old age. When his daughter (Amy Adams) offers to lend a hand on one last scouting trip, Clint grudgingly agrees, only for the two to explore some home truths on their way around the country.

Justin Timberlake drops in for the ride as Adams' ball-playing love interest while John Goodman and Robert Patrick also crop up to swell an impressive ensemble.

Take a look at the new trailer, below…

On that evidence, the script doesn't seem the sharpest, and some of the character archetypes appear fairly well worn, but the chemistry between Eastwood, Adams and Timberlake is undeniable. Oh, and yes that was Matthew Lillard as a slippery suit, following up his work on The Descendants to good effect.

Directed by Robert Lorenz from a screenplay by Randy Brown, Trouble With The Curve opens in the UK on 30 November 2012. Expect a rather serious case of the warm and fuzzies by the end of this one.
