It’s one of those exciting times to be alive if you’re a big fan of anything involving the old west.
Just this week we saw a teaser for an upcoming Netflix limited series titled Godless. Before that was a trailer for the Christian Bale western Hostiles, and the announcement of a Netflix anthology series from none other than the Coen brothers titled The Ballad Of Buster Scruggs. And of course, how could anyone forget the long-awaited video game sequel to Red Dead Redemption coming soon.
Now you can add one more to that list, The Ballad of Lefty Brown. A24 has released a new trailer for the movie, which follows Bill Pullman as a man who witnesses the murder of his longtime partner and sets off on a quest to avenge him. You can read more about The Ballad of Lefty Brown and watch the trailer below.
When cowboy Lefty Brown (Bill Pullman) witnesses the murder of his longtime partner — the newly-elected Senator Edward Johnson (Peter Fonda) — he strikes out to find the killers and avenge his friend’s gruesome death. Tracking the outlaws across the vast and desolate Montana plains, Lefty recruits a young gunslinger, Jeremiah (Diego Josef), and an old friend, a hard-drinking U.S. Marshall (Tommy Flanagan), to help deliver the men to justice.
After a gunfight with the outlaws leaves Jeremiah wounded, Lefty returns home with the names of Johnson’s killers only to find that he is being accused of his friend’s murder. With the tables turned, and with his friend in the governor’s mansion (Jim Caviezel) refusing to help, Lefty must evade the law and prove his innocence by exposing the powerful men ultimately responsible for Johnson’s death. A thrilling and action-packed Western, The Ballad of Lefty Brown is a story about loyalty, friendship, and the relentless pursuit of justice.
The Ballad of Lefty Brown is written and directed by Jared Moshe (Dead Man’s Burden).
The movie will be released in theaters on December 15th.
