A24 has just released, via iTunes Movie Trailers, the trailer for their upcoming western comedy thriller Slow West, starring Michael Fassbender (Frank, X-Men: Days of Future Past), Kodi Smit-McPhee (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, The Road), Ben Mendelsohn (Killing Them Softly, The Dark Knight Rises) and Caren Pistorius (“Offspring,” The Most Fun You Can Have Dying). Check it out in the player below!
Set in late 19th Century Colorado and centering on a young man’s epic search for the love of his life, Slow West follows Fassbender as Silas Selleck, a mysterious and inscrutable stranger acting as the paid protector to sixteen-year-old Scottish aristocrat Jay Cavendish (Smit-McPhee), who is on a reckless journey through the American Wild West. Mendelsohn crosses their paths as Payne, the leader of an intimidating posse of outlaws on their journey to find Rose Ross (Pistorius), the humble farmer’s daughter who fled from Jay’s life.
Written and directed by John Maclean, Slow West was the recipient of the World Cinema Dramatic Grand Jury Prize following its Sundance debut earlier this year. It will premiere on DirecTV April 16th and will be in theaters and available on VOD May 15th.
