First Trailer for BONE TOMAHAWK Starring Kurt Russell

Kurt Russell may be having a banner year thanks to playing a new part in Furious 7 that will reportedly expand in the next Fast trilogy as well as being set to lead Quentin Tarantino's latest film this Christmas, but in between those we'll see the legendary actor take on what looks to be a similar role to what he'll be playing in The Hateful Eight. As Sheriff Franklin Hunt, Russell and three other men set out in the Wild West to rescue a group of captives from cannibalistic cave dwellers. Today, we have the first trailer for director S. Craig Zahler's film that premiered at Fantastic Fest this week. While the tone given from the poster and casting of Russell is one of a throwback to the Westerns of the 70's combined with horror films of the same period, the trailer doesn't give away too much in the way of self-awareness. In fact, the trailer doesn't even give an indication that it is cannibals that are involved in this peril. For all we know, the traditional threat of Native Americans is what could be lurking around the corners which only tends to make the film look all the more like a nostalgia-ridden take on the John Wayne starrer, The Searchers. Still, I like what Zahler and his team seem to at least be going for here and I'm anxious to see if it pans out to be something fresh and inventive as far as gore goes (I need it after seeing The Green Inferno) or if it sticks to it's guns by following the pattern of past genre exercises. Bone Tomahawk also stars Richard Jenkins, Patrick Wilson, Matthew Fox, Sean Young, David Arquette, Lili Simmons, Fred Melamed and opens in theaters and will be available on iTunes and VOD on October 23rd.



Synopsis: When a group of cannibal savages kidnaps settlers from the small town of Bright Hope, an unlikely team of gunslingers, led by Sheriff Franklin Hunt, sets out to bring them home. But their enemy is more ruthless than anyone could have imagined, putting their mission – and survival itself – in serious jeopardy. This is a gritty action-packed thriller chronicling a terrifying rescue mission in the Old West.
