I Love This First Trailer For The Coen Bros.' THE BALLAD OF BUSTER SCRUGGS!
“Things have a way of escalatin’ out here in the west.”
Netflix has released the first trailer for Joel and Ethan Coen’s The Ballad of Buster Scruggs and it it looks absolutely fantastic! The trailer is filled with beautiful cinematography and hilarious humor that had me busting up laughing several times throughout the trailer.
The Coen Bros. certainly have style with the films they make. I love that style, and this western anthology film, which implements that style, looks so freakin’ entertaining! These guys have a wonderful way with words. The movie also comes along with a great cast that includes Tim Blake Nelson, James Franco, Liam Neeson, Clancy Brown, Brendan Gleeson, Zoe Kazan, Tom Waits, Stephen Root and many more.
I love what I’m seeing in this trailer and I’m super excited about watching the movie! The Ballad of Buster Scruggs is slated for a theatrical release on November 16th. Watch the trailer for yourself and tell us what you think! I’ve also included information on the six segments that make up the movie below the trailer.
