After premiering to enthusiastic fanfare at Fantastic Fest in Austin, Texas last night,  S. Craig Zahler’s “Bone Tomahawk” has an official trailer that teases some seriously violent encounters.

Kurt Russell stars as Sheriff Franklin Hunt, the leader of an unlikely team of gunslingers who set out on a mission to find and return townspeople who have been kidnapped by a group of cannibal savages. One of the missing includes the wife of Patrick Wilson’s character, making the mission all the more personal for his wounded husband. Matthew Fox also stars. 

Heavy on the Western and saving its cannibal shock for the last second, the new trailer plays the film’s genre-bending plot very straight, and it shows off some gorgeous cinematography to boot. “Bone Tomahawk” hits theaters, iTunes and On Demand on October 23. Watch the trailer below, courtesy of Entertainment Weekly.
