Do I even have to say anything other than Mads Mikkelsen and Eva Green made a western called “The Salvation“? That alone should be more than enough to get you to put this on your movie watching list, but should you need an extra push, a new U.S. trailer has arrived, along with a handful of new images.
Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Jonathan Pryce, Eric Cantona, and Mikael Persbrandt round out the ensemble in the film directed by Kristian Levring, which takes audiences to the 1870s, where a mild-mannered settler in America gets armed for vengeance after a ruthless gang leader murders his family. A familiar premise, sure, but this got a midnight slot at Cannes of all places, and while Jessica called it a “slavish devotion to great films that have gone before” and “little more than an extremely affectionate fake,” I’m still very curious to check it out.
“The Salvation” hits VOD and opens in limited release on February 27th. Watch below.
