  • Korean War vet and retired autoworker Walt Kowalski doesn’t much like how his life or his neighbourhood has turned out. He especially doesn’t like the people next door, Hmong immigrants from Southeast Asia. But events force Walt to defend those neighbours against a local gang that feeds on violence and fear. 

    For the first time since Million Dollar Baby, Clint Eastwood works on both sides of the camera, winning the National Board of Review Award as Best Actor for his bone-deep playing of Kowalski, burnished with experience, grace and gravitas into a “prime vintage Eastwood performance” (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone).

  • Screen icons Clint Eastwood, Tommy Lee Jones, Donald Sutherland and James Garner are Team Daedalus.

    They were the bravest, boldest and fastest test pilots, ready to serve their country as the first Americans in space when they were cruelly pushed aside and a chimpanzee got the honour. The team returned, but the dream of going into space never died. Now, over four decades later, Team Daedalus is back in action and the dream is alive. When an ageing Russian satellite suffers a systems failure that could be catastrophic, there is only one team who can save the day. Space Cowboys is a tale of grit, guts and glory, as the maverick astronauts finally get the chance to go into space. 

  • Boozer, skirt chaser, careless father. You could create your own list of reporter Steve Everett’s faults but there’s no time. A San Quentin death row prisoner is slated to die at midnight – a man Everett has suddenly realised is innocent. 

    Clint Eastwood memorably plays Everett in True Crime, a savvy beat-the-clock thriller. Isaiah Washington, Denis Leary, Lisa Gay Hamilton, James Woods, Diane Venora and others populate this suspense tale that tightens to nerve-frying intensity intercutting the parallel stories of the inmate and Everett’s scramble to save him…and perhaps lift his own life out of the trash heap along the way. Everett is harried, determined and trying not to self-destruct. And the clock is ticking.

  • He was where he shouldn’t have been and saw what he shouldn’t have seen. Now, who will believe the word of a career thief and ex-con? Who will trust Luther Whitney when he says he saw a woman killed — and that the man responsible for her death is the President of the United States?

    Clint Eastwood portrays Whitney and directs this crisp, finely acted thriller based on David Baldacci’s best-selling novel. The stellar cast, which includes Gene Hackman and Ed Harris, creates well-rounded characters that intensify a constantly spiralling game of cat and mouse between Whitney, local police and the highest levels of White House power. Eastwood is a master at steadily raising the stakes in thrillers. Here his mastery is absolute.

  • World-travelling National Geographic photographer Robert Kincaid and Iowa housewife Francesca Johnson aren’t looking to turn their lives upside down. 

    Each is at a point in life where expectations are behind them. Yet four days after meeting, they won’t want to lose the love they’ve found.

  • Academy Award® winners Kevin Costner and Clint Eastwood confront each other from opposite sides of the law in A Perfect World, an acclaimed, multi-layered manhunt saga (directed by Eastwood) that rumbles down Texas backroads towards a harrowing collision with fate.

    Costner plays Butch Haynes, a hardened prison escapee on the run with a young hostage (T.J. Lowther in a remarkable debut) who sees in Butch the father figure he never had. Eastwood is wily Texas Ranger Red Garnett, leading deputies and a criminologist (Laura Dern) on a state wide pursuit. Red knows every road and pothole in the Panhandle. What’s more, he knows the elusive Haynes – because their paths have crossed before.

  • Clint Eastwood’s film Unforgiven is an exciting modern classic that rode off with four 1992 Academy Awards®, including Best Picture and Director. "The movie summarized everything I feel about the Western," Eastwood told the Los Angeles Times. "The moral is the concern with gunplay."

    Eastwood and Morgan Freeman play retired, down-on-their-luck outlaws who pick up their guns one last time to collect a bounty offered by the vengeful prostitutes of the remote Wyoming town of Big Whiskey. Richard Harris is an ill-fated interloper, a colourful killer-for-hire called English Bob, and Best Supporting Actor Oscar® winner Gene Hackman is the sly and brutal local sheriff whose brand of law enforcement ranges from unconventional to ruthless. Big trouble is coming to Big Whiskey. And Unforgiven is "a Western for the ages" (Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times).
