Mads Mikkelsen & Eva Green in Cannes Western 'The Salvation' Trailer
"You have my respect." Zentropa has debuted the first official trailer for Kristian Levring's The Salvation, a brand new western set in the 1870s starring talented actors Mads Mikkelsen and Eva Green, as well as Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Mikael Persbrandt, Michael Raymond-James and Jonathan Pryce. The film, about a settler who hunts down his family's murderer, is premiering at the Cannes Film Festival this month in the Midnight section next to the other gritty sorta-western The Rover. It's a solid trailer for a film that is now at the top of my list of films to catch during the fest. The cast looks exceptional, the story looks interesting, the cinematography is gorgeous, can't help but say I'm curious to check this one out. Fire it up.
Here's the first trailer for Kristian Levring's The Salvation, from YouTube via The Playlist:
Synopsis: In 1870s America, a peaceful American settler kills his family's murderer which unleashes the fury of a notorious gang leader. His cowardly fellow townspeople then betray him, forcing him to hunt down the outlaws alone. The Salvation is directed by Danish filmmaker Kristian Levring (of Fear Me Not and The Intended previously), from a screenplay co-written by Levring & Anders Thomas Jensen. The film will premiere at the Cannes Film Festival in the Midnight Screenings section later in this month, before opening in Denmark this October. We still don't have exact details on the US release or any plans, but we'll keep you updated. For more info from the production, visit the film's official Facebook page. Look good?

total castgasm. i will categorically watch anything with either Mads Mikkelsen or Eva Green in it, two exceptional actors, and here we get them both! plus Jonathan Pryce, Jeffrey Dean Morgan and i see Douglas Henshall's in this too. while the trailer went on too long and was somewhat choppy (and i've no idea what Cantona's doing in this) i'm so in.

So much true! The trailer is a bit over the top Hollywoodish but man, Mikkelsen vs. Morgan, that's über-badass!

Been a while since I got executed about a western movie lately, this is one of them!

"Executed"... is it illegal to watch westerns wherever you're from? Anyway, the cast sounds more than promising. Unfortunately the trailer is really bad. Not only an over-the-top tone like it's been made in the early 2000s, but with really shoddy editing and music sounding like from a historical video game. Let's just hope the guys who did the trailer weren't the same who made the movie itself.

Solid Cast, but I don't know about this movie as a whole. The cinematography seems a little extreme, and unrealistic. But I guess as long as the script is great maybe this could surprise me. Just have to wait and see!
