As far as the "baseball philosophy" of the respective films goes, Trouble with the Curve seems to be the exact opposite of Moneyball. Trouble with the Curve celebrates the old-school focus on intuition and observation, while Moneyball is all about the stats. And while I tend to favor the Moneyball side of things, as a baseball nerd, the fact that I'm even talking about the "baseball philosophy" of a movie makes me giddy.
Check out the new trailer for Trouble with the Curve, starring Clint Eastwood.
Eastwood plays an aging scout with diminishing eyesight who takes his daughter, played by Amy Adams with him on one final assignment. Justin Timberlake, John Goodman, Matthew Lillard, and Scott Eastwood also star.
Adams' filmography features an array of lighter comedies and deep dramas, with this film seeming to fall somewhere in between. She will also play Lois Lane in the upcoming Superman movie Man of Steel. Goodman is featured in the upcoming film Argo, premiering at the Toronto International Film Festival.
Trouble with the Curve is directed by Robert Lorenz, and comes out September 21.
