The first trailer to Warner Bros. Pictures action drama movie, "Gran Torino" has come out. More than two-minute long, it gives a clear introduction about Clint Eastwood's character, Walt Kowalski. Described to be a racist Korean War veteran who holds his value and belief tightly, he is forced to rethink about his prejudices towards the others after forcing an Asian-American gang to get off of his lawn one night.

Marking Eastwood's first film role since his performance in "Million Dollar Baby", "Torino" is a movie with "never too late to learn a life lesson" plot. It focuses its story on a disgruntled Korean War veteran who sets out to reform his neighbor after catching a young Hmong teenager red-handed trying to steal his prized possession, a 1972 Gran Torino.

Directed by Eastwood, the movie is also supported by Bee Vang, Brian Haley, Cory Hardrict, Brian Howe and many others. The script for the film is provided by Nick Schenk and Dave Johansson, while the film itself is set to have its U.S. limited release on December 17.

The long rich and established 'ever earnest' one note Eastwood continues to maintain TOTAL BALKING SILENCE on the gargantuan matter of Hollywood's decades of suck-up enmeshment with history's --MOST-- awesomely genocidal regime -bar none! ---ACROSS the Pacific. STONE COLD FACT -'Gran Torino'? -SORRY CLINT! -NO more off point cop-outs -esp. as millions continue to suffer and die on this, the once again 'mysteriously overlooked' 60th anniversary of the epically, eerily relevant, STILL unfolding ---KOREAN WAR... -AMEN-
