Watch the trailer for Sundance hit ‘Slow West’, starring Michael Fassbender


The winner of this year’s Grand Jury Prize for World Cinema Dramatic films at Sundance, the first trailer has been released for Slow West, the revisionist Western from first time filmmaker John Maclean, and it’s anything but slow.

The young Kodi Smit-McPhee (The Road, Let Me In) plays a traveler from Scotland on a quest across the West to save his love from a “Dead or Alive” bounty placed on her life. Michael Fassbender is Silas Selleck, a mysterious drifter who accompanies him and teaches him about survival in this region. Slow West also stars Ben Mendelsohn and Rory McCann. Here’s the full plot description via IMDb:

‘Slow West’ follows a 16-year-old boy on a journey across 19th Century frontier America in search of the woman he loves, while accompanied by mysterious traveler Silas.

Two of our initial reviews out of Sundance, one from Dylan Griffin and another from Lane Scarberry, compare the film to other contemporary Westerns such as The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, The Proposition, and Red Hill, as well as highlight the film’s striking cinematography that pays homage to John Ford classics. But perhaps most striking is Director John Maclean’s pedigree, having first played in several bands for nearly a decade before directing a music video that starred Fassbender. Slow West is Maclean’s first feature.

Slow West will be released in theaters and on iTunes on May 15. Watch the trailer below:
