The Ballad of Buster Scruggs Trailer

"I'd appreciate it if you deposit your weapon in the receptacle by the swinging doors." Netflix has debtued a second trailer for the new Coen Brothers film, though it's actually six new Coen Brothers films, as part of their western anthology feature The Ballad of Buster Scruggs. Netflix will be releasing this in select theaters (on November 9th) before it arrives on Netflix for everyone else to watch. This premiered at the Venice Film Festival this year, and also played at NYFF. I saw this in Venice loved it, saying it's "thoroughly amusing and compelling to watch; none of the six stories is any worse than any other, they're all top notch." The huge ensemble cast includes Tyne Daly, James Franco, Brendan Gleeson, Bill Heck, Grainger Hines, Zoe Kazan, Harry Melling, Liam Neeson, Jonjo O'Neill, Chelcie Ross, Saul Rubinek, Tom Waits, Clancy Brown, Jefferson Mays, Stephen Root, and Willie Watson. Along with Tim Blake Nelson playing the titular musician/gunslinger Buster Scruggs. Excited for this to be released soon.

Here's the second trailer (+ poster) for the Coen Brothers' The Ballad of Buster Scruggs, on YouTube:

The Ballad of Buster Scruggs is a six-part Western anthology film, a series of tales about the American frontier told through the unique and incomparable voice of Joel and Ethan Coen. Each chapter tells a distinct story about the American West. The Ballad of Buster Scruggs is both written and directed by iconic American filmmakers Joel Coen and Ethan Coen, of the films Hail, Caesar!, Inside Llewyn Davis, True Grit, A Serious Man, Burn After Reading, No Country for Old Men, O Brother Where Art Thou?, The Big Lebowski, Fargo, Barton Fink and Miller's Crossing previously. The film first premiered at the Venice Film Festival this fall (read our review). Netflix will release the Coens' The Ballad of Buster Scruggs in select US theaters + streaming starting on November 16th later this fall. Looking good? Who's planning to watch?

Looks good as a trailer. But these brothers look like having much more fun while filming and less while spending time thinking of a good end product. We'll see ...

Are you saying their films don't live up to the trailers?

Charles Knowlton on Nov 5, 2018


No, not really. Come on, we both know they have made great films. I would just say that sometimes they really spend more time playing with the idea of film (while making it) instead of making a really good film (which may be the same for them but less for the audience). The result may be, in that case, a bit of confusion. It's just that you can't know that before seeing a film. And I would like this one to be good. ..

Hell yeah. Shooting a gun that close to your head is not advisable.

Could still go either the way of The Ladykillers (not good) or O Brother Where Art Thou (good), but I'll definitely watch it to see for myself.
