It seems Michael Fassbender was keen to make a Western, as he was attached to Jane Got A Gun, but X-Men scheduling issues forced him to drop out, but now he’s made Slow West (it’s the movie he was shooting when one paparazzi managed to take a sneaky pic of him having an outdoor piss). The trailer for the film has now arrived, which you can watch below.
The movie ‘follows a 16-year-old boy (Kodi Smit-McPhee) on a journey across 19th Century frontier America in search of the woman he loves, while accompanied by mysterious traveler Silas (Fassbender).’
The trailer suggest this is a film that will have plenty of style, something Sundance reviews also attested to, although it’s apparently also pretty gritty.
No UK date is currently set, but in the US it’ll arrive on DirecTV on April 16th, before hitting cinemas and VoD on May 15th.
