Now that's what I'd call a bad poster. What the hell's wrong with Smit-McPhee's face??

I like Westerns and I liked Mendelsohn in Starred Up. After seeing his performance in that film I've always looked forward to seeing more of him. He's an excellent actor. I'm sure he'll be a bad, bad man in this film...lol...So...Western...and Mendelsohn makes it worth the trek to the theatre for me. Thanks for the heads-up, Ethan.

Western got a bit awry. Or, at least, it looks that way ...

I don't particularly like Westerns, but I'd watch anything with Fassbender.
