Here's the new red band trailer for Michael Matthews' Five Fingers for Marseilles, from YouTube:
Apartheid South Africa: The community of Railway, attached to the remote town of Marseilles, are the victims of brutal police oppression and only the young "Five Fingers" are willing to stand up to them. Their battle is heartfelt but innocent, until hot-headed Tau kills two policemen in an act of passion. He flees, leaving his brothers and friends behind, but his action has triggered a conflict that will leave both Marseilles and the Five Fingers changed. Twenty years later, Tau is released from prison, now a feared and brutal outlaw, "The Lion of Marseilles." But scarred and empty, he renounces violence and returns home desiring only to reconnect with those he left behind. Five Fingers for Marseilles is directed by South African filmmaker Michael Matthews, making his feature directorial debut after a couple of short films previously. The screenplay is written by Sean Drummond. This first premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last year. Uncork'd will finally release Five Fingers for Marseilles in US theaters starting September 7th.

Wow. This looks very strong. But that little Uncorked flash in the beginning was awful and made the whole production feel cheaper.

Speaking of westerns Bo, have you checked out "Hostiles" on Netflix?

The first 5 minutes was a punch in the gut to me. But overall I thought it was pretty decent. It's well acted and I felt it was somewhat unpredictable (which is nice). It's got some nice cinematography as well. I'd recommend giving it a watch if you can. Curious to know your thoughts.

This looks pretty gritty, but I'm interested. 100% on RT is pretty impressive though.
