Ahh, westerns. We love ’em so much here in the third row, they have their own category.
Slow West premiered to positive reviews at Sundance this year and by the looks of the trailer, I can see why. The film, which is directed by John Maclean, stars Michael Fassbender as a gunslinger guiding a young man, played by Kodi Smit-McPhee (The Road), across the west to find his love. It co-stars Ben Mendelsohn (The Dark Knight Rises, Killing Them Softly), Rory McCann (Game of Thrones), and Brooke Williams.
It looks a little less gritty and a little more fun–that’s to say a little less Wild Bunch and a little more Josey Wales.
Slow West drops in select theaters on May 15, 2015.
