Last week the first official plot details for Clint Eastwood’s last acting project, “Gran Torino”, were released along with the movie poster. Now we’ve got the trailer for “Gran Torino” and it looks awesome.

Armed with his M-1 rifle, Eastwood becomes an unlikely neighborhood hero when he takes on a local gang. No wonder there were rumors this could be a long delayed sequel in the Dirty Harry franchise.

“Gran Torino” plot:

Walt Kowalski is a widower, grumpy, tough-minded, borderline-hateful, unhappy old man who can’t get along with either his kids or his neighbors, a Korean War veteran whose prize possession is a 1973 Gran Torino he keeps in cherry condition. When his neighbor Tao, a young Hmong teenager, tries to steal his Gran Torino, Kowalski sets out to reform the youth. Drawn against his will into the life of Tao’s family, Kowalski is soon taking steps to protect them form the gangs that foul their neighborhood.
