Trouble With the Curve Trailer: Clint Eastwood, Amy Adams, and Justin Timberlake Play Ball

Clint Eastwood doesn't put himself in front of the camera that often, but the last two times he did — in Million Dollar Baby and Gran Torino ± he had the kind of drawing power that made both dramas into $100 million hits, which landed him high on Vulture's Most Valuable Stars list. But just in case that's not enough on its own, he's packed the trailer for his new movie Trouble With the Curve with plenty of other demographic draws. Are you the kind of person who likes to see Clint Eastwood snarl at bad guys and tell young people how life works? Do you love Amy Adams when she's being sweet but assertive? If Justin Timberlake refuses to sing, will you settle for him dancing and taking his clothes off? Did you vote for Phillip Phillips to win American Idol, since his Olympics-boosted single "Home" does the emotional heavy lifting in this trailer? And is there anybody alive who hasn't said "yes" at least once yet? Look, Clint Eastwood knows what he's doing.
