Watch: First US Trailer for Tommy Lee Jones' 'The Homesman' Drama
Before the film debuted at Cannes earlier this year, Tommy Lee Jones' latest directorial effort The Homesman was teased with a trailer. Now the film is poised for release in theaters this fall, and the first official US trailer has arrived, showcasing some seemingly impressive performances from both Jones himself and Hilary Swank. In addition, there's a slew of other recognizable faces who pop up in the film like Hailee Steinfeld, Meryl Streep, James Spader, John Lithgow, Tim Blake Nelson and more. It's a western drama, so it seems like a slow burn, but with an epic journey and a lot of characters. Watch!
Here's the US trailer for Tommy Lee Jones' The Homesman, originally from Yahoo:
The Homesman is written, directed and produced by Tommy Lee Jones, who also leads the film as a claim-jumping rascal of a man saved from a hanging by a pioneer woman (Hilary Swank) who has a unique request in return. The man must usher three insane women on an odyssey from Nebraska to Iowa, braving the elements and avoiding thieves, dangerous Indians and more along the way. The film also features Miranda Otto, Jesse Plemmons, Hailee Steinfeld, Tim Blake Nelson & Meryl Streep with an expected premiere at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival and Roadside Attractions releases it November 14th this fall.

Yea, now his is what I'm talkin' about! Tommy Lee Jones making a film about authentic people in authentic situations suffering authentic human feelings. No cape crusaders, super-duper heroes in silly costumes, or large robots and monsters threatening to destroy the whole planet. Ahhhh...at last something decent and real and seemingly heartfelt and intelligent. 'Tis a good day, indeed!...lol..and I doubt it'll make a nickel...but I'll be there none-the-less.

Tommy Lee Jones and the 1800s go together like peanut butter and jelly. This looks very good. Jones looks like he is having a ball playing this role.

This is going to be great. How do I know? Tommy Lee Jones can direct the heck out of a movie. You must check out this: The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada

I would like Tommy Lee Jones make more westerns or period films. It's about time we get some good quality drama back in the movies again.

Yes! Tommy Lee looks mint! I love this time period. My biggest wish is that some daring director would make Cormac McCarthys "blood meridian".
