Trailers from Hell Takes on Clint Eastwood in 'Sudden Impact'

31 March 2014 8:49 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Bruce Surtees, Eastwood's longtime cinematographer, once again brings his distinctly hardboiled visual style to Harry Callahan's unforgiving universe. »
