Jersey Boys Trailer
In all of the talk about this year's upcoming Oscar race, one of the most surprising omissions is Clint Eastwood's adaptation of Jersey Boys. I too am guilty of omitting him from my first Oscar predictions in March. I know some of his works recently have been less than stellar, but he is a two-time Oscar winning director adapting a Broadway smash hit that won four Tonys including Best Musical. The trailer looks like a lot of the musical adaptations that have hit recently, so there is nothing about it at the moment that seems to stand out. But you never know what to expect from Eastwood, because every once in a while he produces a Mystic River, a Million Dollar Baby, or an Unforgiven. Will Jersey Boys join their ranks? As always we'll have to wait and see.
