This movie was originally set up at Twentieth Century Fox, but after the Walt Disney Company acquired Fox's movie and television entertainment assets in March 2019, they passed on the project, and Warner Brothers acquired the rights. This continues Clint Eastwood's longtime relationship with the studio. See more »
The arcade early in the film features three Galaga machines. Sounds effects are heard from Galaga in the arcade long before anyone starts playing one of the machines. See more »
I always wonder why some directors make crap movies and others make great movies. Clint Eastwood has one of the greatest portfolios of smart, intelligent, interesting and well acted films. From humble beginnings as an actor he has developed into an iconic director. You know going into the theatre that your going to see an artist at work. This story, this movie is what careers are made off. Go see it.
