BONE TOMAHAWK: What Is Everyone Staring At In These Character Posters?
S. Craig Zahler's western Bone Tomahawk hits cinemas, VOD and iTunes on October 23rd. We have been sent a handful of character posters from the flick. I just want to know what everyone is looking at. I find myself more interested in what is on the ground the more I look at them. What's in the dirt, Sheriff Russell?
When a group of cannibal savages kidnaps settlers from the small town of Bright Hope, an unlikely team of gunslingers, led by Sheriff Franklin Hunt (Kurt Russell), sets out to bring them home. But their enemy is more ruthless than anyone could have imagined, putting their mission - and survival itself - in serious jeopardy. Kurt Russell (The Hateful Eight, Tombstone) leads an all-star cast, including Patrick Wilson (Insidious), Matthew Fox ("Lost") and Richard Jenkins (The Cabin in the Woods) in this gritty, action-packed thriller chronicling a terrifying rescue mission in the Old West.
Bone Tomahawk was the closing film of Fantastic Fest last month. ScreenAnarchy lord and master Todd Brown said in his review of the film,
While Zahler keeps the audience waiting for the violence to arrive when it does it is astoundingly frank and unvarnished. When bad things happen, they are very very bad, indeed, and delivered on screen with a blunt, matter of fact approach that makes them all the more stomach churning. This aint no John Wayne western, that's for damn sure, this is a world in which the inhabitants are little more than meat and are treated as such. It appears that the current plans are for the film to be released unrated but were this to go to the MPAA it would be a sure fire NC-17. There's no question at all about that.
Keen an eye out for Bone Tomahawk on October 23rd.
