Second Trailer for Taylor Sheridan's 'Wind River' with Jeremy Renner
"This isn't the land of backup, Jane, this is the land of 'you're on your own.'" The Weinstein Company has debuted a second trailer for the indie thriller Wind River, the feature directorial debut of screenwriter Taylor Sheridan (of Sicario and Hell or High Water previously). This film is a "snow-noir" thriller about a murder mystery set in the snowy mountains of Wyoming, mostly around an Indian Reservation where the locals clash with the government authorities. Jeremy Renner stars, with Elizabeth Olsen as a FBI agent sent to investigate. The cast includes Jon Bernthal, Martin Sensmeier, Julia Jones, Kelsey Asbille, Graham Greene, and Gil Birmingham. This excellent film has been playing at film festivals all over the world, from Sundance to Cannes to Sydney to Seattle (here's my review). I saw it for a second time at the Karlovy Vary Film Festival, and it's still as good as it was the first time around. Add this to your watch list.
Here's the second trailer (+ new poster) for Taylor Sheridan's Wind River, direct from YouTube:
US Fish & Wildlife Service agent Cory Lambert (Renner) discovers a body in the rugged wilderness of the Wind River Indian Reservation. The FBI sends in rookie agent Jane Banner (Olsen), but she's unprepared for the difficulties created by the oppressive weather and isolation of the Wyoming winter. When she employs Cory as a tracker, the two venture deep into a world ravaged by violence and the elements. Wind River is written and directed by Oscar-nominated American screenwriter/filmmaker Taylor Sheridan, making his feature directorial debut after writing the scripts for Sicario and Hell or High Water previously. This first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival (our review), and also played at the Cannes Film Festival this summer. The Weinstein Company will open Wind River in select theaters starting August 4th. You in?

Beautiful SICARIO vibes. // From the perspective of the Indigenous people, it must feel so, so wrong to still be under the jurisdiction of American law men even when you are treated and legally separate.

This looks like it has all the elements, many of them standard ones, as already said here, to be a good film. Or, at least, a standard one. I expect a decent evening watch at some point. I guess, there's no more to expect in this ...

You'd think Hawkeye would get tired of saving Scarlett Witch... I thought Taylor Sheridan directed another film called "Vile"? Could be wrong. This looks interesting. I'll wait for the reviews.

Good trailer but can we finally put an end all those annoying ass critic quotes in trailers, please?

I'm excited for this. I'm hoping it's along the lines of the comic book series "Scalped" which I highly recommend.

Got to see this recently, really really liked it. It's crazy to think there are thousands of cases like this in the US.
