Mads Mikkelsen (Pusher, Casino Royale) gets his six shooter wailing in the new UK trailer for bloody revenge tale The Salvation, which opens in the UK on April 17 and is now playing on VOD and a limited theatrical run in New York from IFC Films.
Paying tribute to the classic western with inspiration from the Nordic sagas, the film takes place in 1870s America. When settler John kills his family’s murderer, he unleashes the fury of notorious gang leader Delarue. Betrayed by his corrupt and cowardly community, the peaceful pioneer must turn vengeful hunter, slay the outlaws, and cleanse the town’s black heart. The Salvation is an epic tale of revenge, lost love and greed.
Directed by Kristian Levring (Fear Me Not), the movie co-stars Eva Green, Jonathan Pryce, Douglas Henshall, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Michael Raymond-James, Mikael Persbrandt and Eric Cantona.
