Westworld Modern Trailer

Westworld Modern Trailer

HBO’s hit series Westworld was inspired by Michael Crichton’s 1973’s feature film of the same name. The earlier film isn’t as expansive as the TV show, but it’s definitely as creepy. And now that you can stream the original on HBO Max, they’ve created a modern trailer for the classic version.

Spaghetti Western Mandalorian

Spaghetti Western Mandalorian

The Mandalorian certainly owes alot to western films like A Fistful of Dollars and The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly. But what would it have looked like if it actually were a spaghetti western? Kingkida’s stylized trailer does a great job imagining just that, complete with the proper music, typeface, and film grain.

Far Alamo

Far Alamo

Editor and VFX wiz Fabrice Mathieu’s latest mashup deftly combines classic western films with the bug-filled universe of Paul Verhoeven’s Starship Troopers saga. Watch in awe as hordes of creepy crawlers invade the Alamo and meet their makers at business end of a rifle.

Hostiles (Teaser)

Christian Bale stars as an Army captain who must escort a Cheyenne chief and his family through dangerous territory. The “one last mission before I retire” thing has been done to death, but it seems fresh in this setting. From director Scott Cooper (Black Mass, Crazy Heart).

Before Master Chief, before Superman, there was the cowboy. CineFix presents its picks for the best Western films of all time. You probably won’t agree with the list, but it’s a great reminder of the genre’s timeless relevance and appeal.

The Magnificent Seven (Teaser)

The Magnificent Seven (Teaser)

Another day, another Hollywood reboot. While we’re cynical that the MGM classic should have been remade at all, we have to hand it to the guys who created this trailer for making us want to check out Antoine Fuqua’s (Training Day) fresh spin on John Sturges’ 1960 western.

Dead in Tombstone (Trailer)

Dead in Tombstone (Trailer)

Danny Trejo makes a deal with the devil Mickey Rourke to exact revenge on half-brother Anthony Michael Hall that crossed him. Not as cool as Machete vs Whiplash vs Bill Gates, but it’ll do.
