Clint Eastwood’s “Gran Torino” Trailer Proves Old People Can Kick Ass Too

Gran Torino

“Hey you kids, off my lawn!”

I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by this Gran Torino trailer (after the jump), which on first glance is the story of an old man and his ongoing quest to scowl as hard as he possibly can. However, when Clint Eastwood pulls a shotgun on Chinese Triads brawling in his front yard, you begin to think this thing might have legs. The premise of “old guy vs. flippant youth gang” isn’t crazy original, but it looks better than say, Kevin Bacon going on the warpath against Neo-Nazis in Death Sentence.

Gran Torino hits theaters December 12th.
