Warner Bros.’ “The Mule” has amassed a domestic total of $101.4 million against a budget of $50 million. Don't be surprised by that total, it's Clint Eastwood.
That's right, the 88-year-old writer-director-actor-composer is still a major attraction for moviegoers nationwide. Eastwood has built up a considerable fanbase of movie fans over the years. His name is now synonymous and represents many values within that base, they will go to see whatever movie he directs or stars in just purely based on those beliefs (“Gran Torino,” The 15:17 to Paris,” American Sniper,” “Sully”).
Speculation is that he isn't done either, an as-of-yet untitled project from Le Clint is set to be fast-forwarded for production later this year and set for release end of 2019. This would be his 36th film as a director. The man is a beast.
