Hickok Trailer

"We gunna have to do something about that young marshall of yours…" Cinedigm has released the first official trailer for a new western called Hickok, also known as Abilene (which is the name of the town in Kansas that this takes place in). The film stars Luke Hemsworth (the other brother of Liam and Chris) as a legendary lawman and gunslinger known as "Wild Bill" Hickok who moves to Abilene and is given the task of taming the wildest cow-town in the west. Also starring Trace Adkins, Kris Kristofferson, Cameron Richardson, Kaiwi Lyman-Mersereau, Hunter Fischer, Robert Catrini, and Bruce Dern. This actually seems like a gritty western straight out of the 90s, without much to offer other than big gunfights.

Here's the first official trailer for Timothy Woodward Jr.'s Hickok, direct from YouTube:

Hickok Poster

Infamous gunslinger and outlaw "Wild Bill" Hickok (Luke Hemsworth) attempts to escape his past by settling in the small town of Abilene, Kansas. The mayor (Kris Kristofferson), captivated by Wild Bill’s unparalleled gun skills, offers him a job as the town marshal. Attempts to protect the town are soon challenged when a band of outlaws threaten Wild Bill and the laws he administered. Hickok is directed by American indie filmmaker Timothy Woodward Jr., of the films Throwdown, 7 Faces of Jack the Ripper, SWAT: Unit 887, Checkmate, Decomissioned, 4Got10, Weaponized, and Traded previously. The screenplay is written by Michael Lanahan. This has not premiered at any film festivals or anywhere else. Woodward's Hickok will open in select theaters + on VOD starting July 7th this summer.

    I don't mind some cheese now and again but crikey was almost every line in that copied directly from the A to Z of clichéd loners lines? If they were prepared to show someone trying to fill the mandate of 'wild bill' it might be interesting but this just looked like a lame made for TV western. Okay, I could be completely wrong as I'm only going on a trailer but this doesn't look like it's in the same league as Bone Tomahawk, which IMO is one of the best westerns that I've recently seen.
    • Bone Tomahawk was INTENSE. I had to fast forward some of it because I couldn't handle the slow burn.

        Man oh sure was...way too much for got into the splatter porn trip in my opinion...especially in the cave at the end and splitting that guy in's just not necessary and crosses the line into sickness from my perspective. Too bad as it could have been a really good, hard hitting movie. Cheers, Raw.

    Man, I think I just fell asleep watching this ... thing

      Seconded. We just watched the boring cliff notes of the movie.
  • grimjob
    Bruce Dern and Kris Kristofferson sell it for me. Guess I'll have to tolerate the Daniel Baldwin of the Hemsworth family.
    • Hahaha! I thought to myself, ANOTHER Hemsworth?!?
  • shiboleth
    This will be forgettable, of course, but some nice woman and, as already said, Bruce Dern and Kris Kristofferson might make me someday to watch this. Other than that, this is only cheap idea for some pocket money in Hollywood. I guess they have enough people to watch this ...
    Looks rather dreadful, but it's a Western so I'll probably end up seeing it anyway.
  • Holy cowboy boots that was horrendous. looks like it was filmed on a handy-cam.

    So sick of the Aussie-washing in American westerns! Seriously...Trace Adkins looks more like Wild Bill in this flick than Hemsworth does. Is the casting choice an attempt to get women to see this? That boy sure got a purdy mouth. I always though "Wild Bill" was an underrated western and I thought Jeff Bridges did a great job portraying Hickok.
  • It's a by-the-book western. Not bad. Not good either. Déjà vu.
    • Bo
      I agree. I like Westerns though and also liked Kristofferson's line about the demons and facing them. That was pretty good, but other than that I didn't see much substance in the trailer or the younger brother lead guy. It sure isn't going to be anything like my favorite western Pat Garrett and Billy The Kid by Peckinpah with Kristofferson and James Coburn. Excellent film with great music by Dylan.
      • I like western too. But westerns with lot of dirt, mud and toothless outlaws, and without John Wayne. ;D Unforgiven, any Sergio Leone western, Tombstone and Silverado are my favorites. Yeah. This Hemsworth is too pretty to be a true cowboy.
        • Bo
          We're on the same page here, tarek. Ditto on sans John Wayne! When I was young I was appalled, appalled I tell you, when Wayne won the Oscar for True Grit instead of Dustin Hoffman for Midnight Cowboy. That was an early lesson in the ways of Hollywood and the politics and how it was all BS. Sure, Once Upon In The West...great Western...loved Tombstone and Val Kilmer. Gotta pass on was a bit too clean, silly and goofy for my taste. Agree on this young bro being too pretty... plus he didn't seem to have a very strong inner life going in his performance. Later gator.
  • This looks like a made for TV movie. If it's going for a theatrical release 7-7-17, it's going to plummet straight to the bottom of the barrel. Sad to see such great actors reduced to these roles. If it were another movie, without the name "Hickok" attached to it, it might have a slight chance of success.
