Here's a nice selection of stills from Gran Torino which marks Clint's return to the Big screen since Million Dollar Baby in 2004.

Jazz Singer Jamie Cullum features on the Gran Torino soundtrack, singing with Clint no less, on the wonderful title track. Here is a great shot that was taken of Clint backstage at a Cullum show on the 21st September 2008, possibly during the post production stages of Gran Torino? Which begs the question; Was this the first meeting that lead to Cullum becoming involved with the project? A great photo nonetheless, thanks to the original photographer for sharing it on the web.
