Awesomely Fun Trailer for Ethan Hawke’s Western IN THE VALLEY OF VIOLENCE
"Those men left me with nothing, I'm going to leave them with less."
The first trailer has been released for director Ti West’s new film In The Valley of Violence. The movie looks awesomely entertaining, and it has a great cast that includes Ethan Hawke, Karen Gillan, and John Travolta.
In the Valley of Violence tells a revenge story that follows a drifter and his dog as they are trying to make their way through the desert and into Mexico. Along the way the stumble upon a small town named Denton where they find some trouble. The movie looks like a good old-fashioned western packed with violence and some witty and amusing dialogue.
West is best known for the hour films that he’s made such as The Innkeepers and The House of the Devil. His latest project is outside of the horror genre, and it looks like he had fun with it and did a great job telling the story. I’m looking forward to checking it out! Here’s the synopsis:
A mysterious drifter named Paul (Ethan Hawke) and his dog Abbie (Jumpy) make their way towards Mexico through the barren desert of the old west. In an attempt to shorten their journey they cut through the center of a large valley – landing themselves in the forgotten town of Denton – a place now dubbed by locals as a “valley of violence.” The once popular mining town is nearly abandoned, and controlled by a brash group of misfits and nitwits – chief among them, the seemingly untouchable, Gilly (James Ransone) who is the troublemaking son of the town’s unforgiving Marshal (John Travolta).
As tensions rise between Paul and Gilly, Denton’s remaining residents bear witness to an inevitable act of violence that starts a disastrous chain reaction, infecting the petty lives of all involved and quickly drags the whole town into the bloody crosshairs of revenge. Mary-Anne (Taissa Farmiga) and Ellen (Karen Gillan), two bickering sisters who run the town’s only hotel, try to find the good in both men, while desperately searching for their own salvation. Only the world-weary Marshal struggles to stop the violent hysteria, but after a gruesome discovery about Paul’s past…there is no stopping the escalation.
The movie will be released on VOD and limited theaters on October 21st.
