Nicolas Cage gets top billing in this colorful samurai western about a criminal who is sprung from jail by a warlord and forced to rescue his runaway granddaughter. If he does not comply or attempts to flee, he’ll meet a terrible fate. We’ve got an Escape from New York meets The Road Warrior vibe going here.
When an outlaw discovers that his enemy is being released from prison, he gets his gang together to get revenge on his nemesis. But things don’t go as expected in this fresh new Western, starring Jonathan Majors, Zazie Beetz, Delroy Lindo, LaKeith Stanfield, Regina King, and Idris Elba. Coming Fall 2021 to theaters and Netflix.
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.
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.
Auteurs Joel and Ethan Coen join the Netflix ranks with their Western anthology film, in which six short tales each reveal a story about the American West. Stars James Franco, Brendan Gleeson, Zoe Kazan, Liam Neeson, Tim Blake Nelson, and Tom Waits. Drops 11/16/18.
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).
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.
