A week after Clint Eastwood's appearance at the Republican National Convention, mocking continues about the Hollywood veteran's peculiar, rambling conversation with an imaginary President Obama in an empty chair, raising the question: Will his latest film also be playing to empty seats when it debuts this month?
Despite the continued roasting of Mr. Eastwood's RNC shenanigans online, Mr. Young said, moviegoers often are forgiving of such bizarre, broadcast-for-the-masses moments.
"If people go to see 'Trouble With the Curve,' it's probably not because they side or don't side with Clint's political beliefs," said Mr. Young. "They're going to go to be entertained, whether they like movies about baseball or just the stuff that Mr. Eastwood has done in the past."
