Trailer for Clint Eastwood's Jersey Boys

18 April 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Clint Eastwood is an amazing director, and his latest project is a big screen adaptation of the Tony Award-winning Broadway musical Jersey Boys. It's definitely a very different kind of project for the director, but it looks like he did a great job bringing this story of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons to life. For those of you not familiar with these guys, we have a trailer for you to check out, and you're sure to recognize the classic songs in the film.

The film tells the story of four young men from the wrong side of the tracks in New Jersey who came together to form the iconic 1960s group The Four Seasons. The story of their trials and triumphs are accompanied by the songs that influenced a generation, including “Sherry,” “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” “Walk Like a Man,” “Dawn,” “Rag Doll,” “Bye Bye Baby,” “Who Loves You, »

Watch: Stylish First Trailer for Clint Eastwood's Musical 'Jersey Boys,' Why Go Out in Summer?

18 April 2014 10:18 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

The first trailer for director Clint Eastwood's hotly anticipated "Jersey Boys," adapted from the celebrated musical about iconic '60s rock group The Four Seasons, has landed.  Like the smash jukebox musical written by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice -- who also wrote the film's screenplay, alongside cowriter John Logan -- Eastwood's film revolves around the rise and fall of the band led by Frankie Valli, whose entanglements in the mafia and rough-and-tumble days on the streets of New Jersey came to define, and complicate, their image. After a long casting process, stage actor John Lloyd Young finally got to reprise his role as Valli, who he also played when the musical opened on Broadway in 2005. Christopher Walken costars. This is 83-year-old Eastwood's first film as a director since 2011's divisive biopic "J. Edgar"; it's produced by Graham King's Gk Films. And it's director Eastwood's first musical (he »

“Sherry Baby” Will Get Stuck in Your Head with New Trailer for Clint Eastwood’s Jersey Boys

18 April 2014 9:15 AM, PDT | SmellsLikeScreenSpirit | See recent SmellsLikeScreenSpirit news »

The trailer for director Clint Eastwood's Jersey Boys debuted this morning. Filled with a cast of Hollywood unknowns (and Christopher Walken... Always Christopher Walken) and based off the smash Broadway musical, Jersey Boys is a dramatized account of the rise and fall of the Four Seasons, including the meteoric rise of frontman Frankie Valli. The movie looks well-crafted and well-acted, as most of Eastwood's movies are, but I'm guessing that one's appreciation for the movie will hinge on how much one enjoys the music of the Four Seasons and can stand the high pitch falsetto of Frankie Valli for a couple of hours. I'm a fan, thought not enthusiastically so, so I've put this one on my radar. Now I need to find a way to get "Sherry Baby" unstuck from my head. »

The First 'Jersey Boys' Trailer Will Have You Tapping Your Toes (Video)

18 April 2014 5:45 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

One of the major X-factors of the summer movie season has been Clint Eastwood's adaptation of the smash Broadway musical "Jersey Boys." The true life tale of Frankie Valli and the formation of his influential pop band the Four Seasons. For a while it looked like the movie would open up at Christmas, joining the Broadway musical thunder-dome that currently includes big budget cinematic revamps of "Into the Woods" and "Annie." But then the reality set in: Eastwood is a grumpy old director who never does two takes and ends each shooting day before lunch. "Jersey Boys" suddenly became a summer movie... and the first trailer has just debuted. And it's really, really good.

Instead of relying on movie stars, Eastwood corralled a bunch of young actors who had starred in various stage productions of the show, so John Lloyd Young stars as Frankie Valli, Erich Bergen is Bob Gaudio, »

Watch: First Trailer For Clint Eastwood’s ‘Jersey Boys’

18 April 2014 2:08 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Straight from Warner Bros UK, we’ve got the first trailer for Clint Eastwood’s big-screen adaption of the Tony-award winning Jersey Boys, and it’s looking pretty darn good.

The film tells the tale of four young fellows from New Jersey, who came together from difficult backgrounds to form the 1960′s group The Four Seasons. This is set to be the story of their ups and downs through the early days, up to success with songs such as “Sherry,” “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” “Walk Like a Man,” “Dawn,” “Rag Doll,” “Who Loves You” and so many more.

After running on Broadway for more than eight years and touring successfully across the world, this is surely a perfect time for the film version and – although I don’t know their specific history that well – this gives me a good sense in the mix of personal tribulations and that feel-good factor. »

First Trailer and Poster for Clint Eastwood’s Jersey Boys

17 April 2014 10:40 PM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Warner Bros. have released the first trailer and poster for Clint Eastwood’s big screen adaptation of popular stage musical Jersey Boys. The movie revolves around Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons, and chronicles their rise to fame in the 1960s with hits like “Big Girls Don’t Cry” and “Walk Like a Man.”

The Tony Award winning Broadway musical is extremely popular, and as with the likes of Mamma Mia and Les Miserables, the brand recognition alone could mean that the studio have a guaranteed hit on their hands.

It also helps that the trailer makes it clear that this is a Clint Eastwood film, and the fact that his style means it doesn’t look the typical musical adaptation should help draw in those new to Jersey Boys as well.

The songs in the preview are also extremely catchy, and the first big musical movie of 2014 seemingly has everything it needs to succeed. »

First Trailer for Clint Eastwood's 'Jersey Boys' Musical Carries a Tune

17 April 2014 8:53 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

It's been awhile since we had a big screen musical that didn't come with a big name cast, and perhaps that's what makes Clint Eastwood's adaptation of the Tony Award-winning musical Jersey Boys so damn interesting. John Lloyd Young, Erich Bergen, Vincent Piazza, Michael Lomenda take the lead with Christopher Walken in a supporting role, and as you can see in the first trailer (and the first poster), we're going to get several points-of-view on the story of how Frank Valli, Bob Gaudio, Tommy DeVito and Nick Massi became Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons, the 60s music sensation. This looks fantastic! Watch! Here's the first trailer for Clint Eastwood's Jersey Boys straight from Warner Bros.

Clint Eastwood’s Jersey Boys Trailer Is Here

17 April 2014 7:25 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Here's the first trailer for Clint Eastwood's Jersey Boys movie — yes, that Clint Eastwood — based on the long-running Broadway musical about Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons. John Lloyd Young, who won a Tony for his stage portrayal of Valli, is back in the role, along with Vincent Piazza (Boardwalk Empire), and Christopher Walken as a mob boss. If you were concerned about how Hollywood's foremost rugged octogenarian would fare with his first foray into musical theater, fear not: It appears that Eastwood is sticking pretty nicely to the musical's key elements, with plenty of direct-address monologues in thick New Jersey accents followed by high-pitched song and dance numbers. Sort of like Goodfellas, if it was a crowd-pleasing jukebox musical directed by Dirty Harry. Count us in. »
