How Fans are Reacting?

” 90 year old Clint is THE MAN”– Jorge Aquilla
As i watched this, i thought to myself: Clint is always had been and always will be THE MAN… The only 90 year old who would willingly get into a fist fight and still come out ahead. #respect #crymacho #clinteastwood

“Clint is American icon”– Bruno Cunha
Clint has three generation of love from my family- my grandfather, my father and Me.
It feels sad Clint is 91. He is a US personification, a legendary actor.

Awesome trailer, and looks fantastic to be worth watching. What about releasing in Asia?
