Clint Eastwood's Duo

Coming this October and December, would be Clint Eastwood's two epic World War II films which based on the event of the Battle of Iwo Jima. The first film, which was scheduled to release on October 20th, was Flag of Our Fathers and the second film, was Red Sun, Black Sand. While both films told the event of Iwo Jima, Flag would be told from American POV (see picture), and Red Sun would be told from Japanese POV.

The trailer has been online (but sorry, couldn't find the decent URL), and from what i've seen, it was a film worth to wait. The tone, which was almost black-and-white, the mood, all sets for a majestic, epic, and sorrow instead of... mmm... crash-boom-bang?. The battle of Iwo Jima itself was said as a American's superiority Japanese crucial loss in World War II. And if i could be bold enough, Clint Eastwood will be another serious contender for this year's Academy Awards.
