First Trailer For WB/Clint Eastwood’s “Jersey Boys”

First Trailer For WB/Clint Eastwood's "Jersey Boys"

Wait, before you say it, I am in complete agreement that Dirty Harry seems an odd choice to direct Warner Brothers’ film adaptation of “Jersey Boys”.  But much to his and WB’s credit, they have brought with them the Broadway cast to reprise their roles on screen, and this first trailer for the film looks interesting.  Film adaptations of Broadway musicals are about as reliable as having your college roommate watch your fish while you’re away for the weekend.  There have been the good (“Chicago”, “Mamma Mia”), the bad (“Nine”, “The Producers”) and then there was “Rock of Ages”.  But hey, it’s Clint and John Lloyd Young is superb as Frankie Valli.  The film opens June 6th against “The Fault In Our Stars”.
