Worth Watching - Aug 6: Ed Harris' Appaloosa Trailer
The first trailer for Ed Harris' western Appaloosa has been released. Last year when both 3:10 to Yuma and Assassination of Jesse James hit theaters, I predicted that the western genre might be attempting a return. While I would hardly call one extra film a return, this has an impressive cast and looks fantastic, so I yet again might ask whether westerns are indeed trying to make a comeback? Viggo Mortensen and Ed Harris star together as hired sheriffs in a small western town. They're joined by Jeremy Irons and Renée Zellweger. This trailer for Appaloosa looks fantastic and definitely has potential, but I'm wondering if this will be another forgettable western or something more. Take a look below and decide for yourself.

Appaloosa is co-written and directed by actor Ed Harris, who only previously directed the 2000 biopic Pollock. The script was written by Harris and fellow actor Robert Knott and is based on the novel of the same name written by Robert B. Parker. The film will be premiering at the Toronto Film Festival this September before being release domestically later this fall. New Line Cinema, under operation by Warner Brothers, is releasing Appaloosa in limited theaters starting on October 3rd.
