This could be the year that Clint Eastwood finally wins the Best Actor Oscar. Despite behind nominated twice in the category (UNFORGIVEN and MILLION DOLLAR BABY), he’s only won Oscars for Best Director and Best Picture. We might see THE MULE get him that Best Actor Oscar that many would see appropriate for honoring his entire body of work as an actor. Based on the trailer, though, it looks like this could be one of his best performances yet.
The title is a little hard to read/pronounce right off the bat... but the logline is extremely exciting since the studio finally seems ready to step away from nostalgia-driven content and instead focus on a truly original concept that takes place within the STAR WARS universe. Don’t forget that Favreau basically created the aesthetic of the MCU with IRON MAN... so everything about this is exciting.. maybe the title will change.. or we’ll just get used to it.
