Review: There was no poster immediately available for my review. Should one become available in the future, this section will be updated.

Trailer Rating: C+

Review: This Paul Greengrass western trailer bears all the markings of a traditional western, but without a unifying vision. Is it an anti-western or a traditional western. It’s Greengrass, so it’s probably gritty, but it also doesn’t seem to have what it takes to reach the crossover audience that could make it a hit, even with Tom Hanks in the starring role.

Oscar Prospects:

Paul Greengrass is one of those directors you should consider before making you predictions, but never expect him to pull of a huge Oscar nomination run.
