Mads Mikkelsen and Eva Green Go West in 'The Salvation' Trailer
Since there wasn't much to do in the Old West, it seems like there's always a tale of revenge to be told. And that's just what we get with The Salvation, a story that follows a Danish ex-soldier (Mads Mikkelsen) who takes down the men who killed his wife and son. But then the revenge table is turned when one of the dead men's brother (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) wants his own vengeance. And just in case seeing Mikkelsen in the west isn't enough to tickle your fancy, Eva Green is also in the film, who seems to be the wife of Morgan's deceased brother. This doesn't look like uncharted territory, but it doesn't look bad either. Watch!

The Salvation is directed by Danish filmmaker Kristian Levring who co-wrote the script with Anders Thomas Jensen, both making their English-language feature film debut. In 1870s America, a peaceful American settler and former Danish soldier (Mads Mikkelsen of Casino Royale) kills his family's murderer which unleashes the fury of a notorious gang leader (Jeffrey Dean Morgan of Watchmen), hellbent on hunting him down for the death of his brother. Eva Green (300: Rise of an Empire) also stars in the film which premiered at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival and hits VOD and limited theaters on February 27th.
