Gunless Teaser Trailer

Now here's a fun teaser trailer for a Canadian film called Gunless. I first heard about this last year at the Toronto Film Festival. It had been described as a western without guns, but it's not exactly that. It's a western, that's for sure, but the twist is that the Canadian town this American gunslinger ends up is gunless, while our hero - The Montana Kid - is not gunless. It's kind of a fish-out-of-water film, but it's also a play on westerns that makes fun of Americans. It stars Canadian actor Paul Gross, who was on "Due South" and "Eastwick", and also Sienna Guillory. It's a very short teaser, but I've got to admit, it does look quite fun.

Watch the early teaser trailer for William Phillips' Gunless:

For more information, visit the official website for the film:

A hardened American gunslinger is thwarted in his attempts to mount a showdown in a friendly town up in Canada where no one seems to understand or appreciate the brutal code of the American Wild West.

Gunless is written and directed by Canadian filmmaker William Phillips, of the feature films Treed Murray and Foolproof previously. This was shot last year in and around British Columbia. Alliance Films is bringing it to Canadian theaters in March, but it doesn't have a US distributor yet, so we're not exactly sure when it'll makes it way down to the US. I suppose the more important question is: does anyone even wants to see this?

I'd have to see more first before I decide to see it. Those Canadians always seem to be making fun of us Americans. Honestly though, we kinda deserve it.

Shut up #1 - America is awesome

Jay on Jan 11, 2010


Shut up #7, we're awsome but there's more than America in the world.

What #5 said. Also I'd like to add a WTF? to that.

It's not a trailer, it's a teaser. It's not supposed to tell you all about the film, it's supposed to spark your interest and that's all. I presume a full trailer will follow nearer to the release date. As far as I'm concerned, I thought that was a quite funny video, and I'll look forward to learning more about it.

Holy crap, that PASSCHENDAELE trailer does look awesome! Could it be: TWO good Paul Gross movies this year?

Scotty97 on Jan 11, 2010


edit to above ^^ Apparently, no, it can't be TWO good Paul Gross movies this year. I just looked it up and PASSCHENDAELE came out in 2008 and is on DVD and torrent sites already. Can't wait!

Scotty97 on Jan 11, 2010


yea, scotty - you're right. but, i checked netflix a little while ago and it isn't available yet. i did put it on my save queue. PASSCHENDAELE looks outstanding and i'm looking forward to seeing it!

beavis on Jan 11, 2010


Hey Alex! Nice job finding and posting that! I am impressed. And do check out Passchendaele.

Jim Dorey on Jan 11, 2010


PASSCHENDAELE has been released to DVD. Excellent movie. Highly recommend it.

this guy seems a pretty cool head...nice to se something adult oriented....really tired of movies for pre-teens...

America is fat and gay. Canada rules the world, at least above the Canadian border. Canada had The Tea Party, though now those guys live in Australia and Ireland. Canada is the new Australia. Australia is still Australia but at least Stargate Atlantis and Stargate Universe is not made there, yet. Those shows are ours! Hands off, Aussies.
