Today we have the first trailer for the upcoming "Jane Got a Gun" action Western, starring Natalie Portman, Noah Emmerich, Ewan McGregor, and Joel Edgerton. Check it out below.
Plot: After her outlaw husband returns home shot with eight bullets and barely alive, Jane reluctantly reaches out to an ex-lover who she hasn't seen in over ten years to help her defend her farm when the time comes that her husband's gang eventually tracks him down to finish the job.
The new movie is directed by Gavin O'Connor (Warrior, Pride and Glory) and is set to hit theaters in February of 2016.

This film has been riddled with problems. I can't believe it ever got completed. I believe three or four actors dropped out of it during production. That probably explains why the trailer looks like a bunch of crap.

I'm even surprised you even know that song because it was out before you were born. Anyways, good taste man!
Yep, the trailer is so f*cked up that production must have been halted and resumed for God knows what. Portman or not this is crap and I'll confirm it when it'll be out pretty soon.
Speaking of crap, "Hitman: Agent 47" is really, really bad. Rupert Friend can do much better than this. Oh well, better luck next time I guess.

Hitman Agent 47 looks so sh*t that I don't even want to dl it for free.

Yeah, you can't possibly be wrong about that one. The trailer was so f*cking presumptuous!!
Fooled me once...never f*cking mind!

Bitches are whining about the f*cking updates. Where the f*ck are you now, wankers???
Your point is well taken. Westerns are the only movie genre derived from the United States and the really good one - despite all the black and white savages on the frontier or shady calvary man/sheriff/etc. - came from other influences. It's interesting that you mention Tarantino, since Kurosawa's Yojimbo and Sanjuro influenced Sergio Leone (*as well as Walter Hill's Last Man Standing, which displayed 1930's stylistic action, but with a western feel) ... A lot of westerns have died out because that genre had very slim window of time in the cinema landscape ...even with Tarantino's reinterpretation of it.
What gets me about this one is the fact that the widow didn't learn anything from her "outlaw" husband and has to go to her ex-lover (smh) to get assistance to defend her plot of land. I hadn't seen a film yet, where the heroine wasn't as strong, if not stronger, in defending the place than her husband.

Appaloosa, True Grit remake, and Slow West are good recent Westerns.

Although it might have been bad I always feel Kurt Russell was most at home in Westerns. He basically spearheaded production of "Tombstone" and the fact Tarantino thought of him for "Hateful Eight" shows it too. I think that, if Westerns hadn't of died out, he could have done well in that genre.
Have't seen Slow West but I agree with the others. Appaloosa was a little hard for me to swallow at first because of the love triangle bit but the fine performances and Mortensen's epic final stand against Jeremy Irons won me over.
The problem with Westerns is they are slow. LOL They require a love of tedious detail and character moments. I remember watching High Plains Drifter. Great film but it was a beautifully slow build of a story. Westerns require a patience most people nowadays don't have. Attention spans are too low!!! LOL But that's why I love them. I love that patience and that precision in filmmaking. It's what makes Clint Eastwood such a good director I think. Working in Westerns most of his life he had to watch a story that relied only on characters and well-timed story moments. Westerns are the purest form of cinema in my opinion...which is why they aren't popular anymore. Cinema has kind of gone down hill. LOL

@Max Rockatansky Junior
Love how you basically poked a huge hole in this film's plot without even seeing the movie. LOL I suppose we could just assume the outlaw husband is a bad shot or he never taught her. Whatever. It sounds a lot like that movie "Sweetwater" or whatever it was called that January Jones did a couple years ago.

All 3 are slower paced and very watchable.

I'll check out "Slow West" soon. Thanks.
