Unforgiven Re-Release Trailer

"We all have it coming, kid." Any big fans of this film out there? Clint Eastwood's Best Picture-winning classic western Unforgiven is being re-released with a brand new, restored 4K print. Eastwood was just at the Cannes Film Festival last month, presenting the restored version of film in the Cannes Classics section and talking at a masterclass seminar during the festival. Unforgiven "summarizes everything I feel about the Western,” director/star Clint Eastwood told the LA Times. The film features Eastwood as Bill Munny, with Morgan Freeman, Gene Hackman, Richard Harris, Jaimz Woolvett, Saul Rubinek, Frances Fisher, Anna Levine, David Mucci, and Rob Campbell. It was first released in 1992. Hopefully this 4K version will end up in US theaters after first playing in France this summer. Watch the official trailer below.

Here's the French trailer (+ poster) for the re-release of Clint Eastwood's Unforgiven, from YouTube:

Retired Old West gunslinger William Munny reluctantly takes on one last job, with the help of his old partner and a young man. Unforgiven is a "modern classic" western directed by Clint Eastwood (of The Outlaw Josey Wales, Bronco Billy, Sudden Impact, Pale Rider, Heartbreak Ridge, White Hunter Black Heart, The Rookie), starring Clint Eastwood. It was first released in the late summer of 1992. The film won four Academy Award, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Editing, and Best Actor in a Supporting Role (given to Gene Hackman as Little Bill Daggett). The new 4K restoration first premiered at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival in the Cannes Classics section. It opens in France starting June 21st this summer, but has no US re-release date set yet. Stay tuned for updates. Who wants to go see this classic film in theaters?

  • One of the best "modern" westerns. I think if any movie deserves the "Noir" treatment, it's this one.

      Ah, it's okay, Raw...but let's not go overboard't resist ribbing you here from your favorite enigma. Cheers!
      • LOL! Curious, what's your favorite "modern" western? And I'm thinking 1990 or newer...
        • Bo
          Ah, jeez, Raw. That's a tough question. I can't even think of one off hand. My favorites of all time are Hombre with Paul Newman, Pat Garret and Billy the Kid with Kristofferson and James Coburn directed by Sam Peckinpah, and the Steve McQueen The Magnificent Seven. I also very much liked Brando's One Eyed Jacks. I can't think of any that stand close to any of those. Are modern Westerns after 1990? Name some of them you might like or wonder if I did. Cheers.
          • I've seen all but Pat Garret and Billy The Kid and One Eyed Jacks. Hombre I actually just caught on TCM recently, which was a WAY ahead of it's time regarding its social commentary. The Magnificent Seven is a classic, however, I prefer Kurosawa's version =) I guess modern westerns are everything after 1985 (according to IMDB) so, this would include the following: 3:10 to Yuma Appaloosa (Probably the favorite of this bunch for me) Dances with Wolves, Dead Man Django Unchained The Missing Open Range Quick and the Dead The Revenant Tombstone True Grit Unforgiven to name the ones I've seen. Just curious if any from that list float your boat? I'm gonna anticipate a "No." lol
          • Bo
            Hey Raw! Yea, you probably should take a look at both Peckilnpah's great Billy The Kid film and Brando's One Eyed Jacks. Both Brando and Karl Malden are pretty good in that one. Yea, let me surprise you here as I think four of the films on your list 'floated' my boat: The Missing I really, really liked...a lot..and am still baffled why it didn't do well. No skin off my butt though as today's audiences haven't a clue. I liked Ed Harris' Appalossa a lot too with him and Viggo. I'd read Parker's book and Harris did a great job adapting it into a very good film. Open Range was pretty good...above average for sure. Tombstone I enjoyed. It was funny, but I wouldn't put it up there with the really good Westerns. So there you are. Your assignment, should you agree to it, is to watch Pat Garrett and Billy and Kid and One Eyed Jacks...immediately! It's Peckinpah and Brando for!
          • I found Open Range to be much better than I anticipated as well. Tombstone was just "okay" to me. I liked the performances, but I don't hold it in high regard like a lot of people. And I accept! This won't self-destruct...but it will live on forever on the interwebs....
          • Bo
  ! Let me know if you've seen them and what you thought if it's done within a reasonable amount of time and we're both still
  • shiboleth
    Yeah, very nice piece of cinema ...
    It's a hard knock life for us...
  • tommyturner
    Funny, I've been watching Eastwood films since the 1970's. I remember when Unforgiven came out and I thought Clint looked old. Now I saw this new trailer for the restored version and it's like.....Clint looks so young. Amazing what the years do to us.
