What does this seemingly legit Gran Torino one-sheet tell you? Here’s what it tells me: (a) Forget “sensitive” — this is a brass-tacks movie about one snarly old mofo; (b) The old Dirty Harry spirit and physicality is alive and well (that’s an enviably flat stomach for a 78 year-old!); (c) We’ll get into the racial-bigotry-and-animosity stuff in late November or early December — all we want to do now is send out those good old Clint vibes. Gran Torino now has a firm release date of 12.17.08. [Sorry for previous 11.17 typo.]
