The first trailer for cannibal western Bone Tomahawk has arrived online, and we have it for you below…
Directed by S. Craig Zahler, Bone Tomahawk stars Kurt Russell (The Hateful Eight), Patrick Wilson (Watchmen), Matthew Fox (Lost), David Arquette (Scream) and Richard Jenkins (Killing Them Softly) and tells the story of a local sheriff who rallies some locals to take on cave-dwelling cannibals.
A stranger (David Arquette) rolls into the tiny Western town of Bright Hope, immediately drawing the suspicions of the backup deputy Chicory (Richard Jenkins). He alerts the town’s sheriff, Franklin Hunt (Kurt Russell) and in an ensuing scuffle, the stranger is wounded and put in jail. Summoned to tend to the wounded man is the beautiful Samantha O’Dwyer (Lili Simmons), whose successful working-class husband Arthur (Patrick Wilson) is laid out at home with a broken leg.
Sometime in the night, a local stable boy is torn to pieces, horses are stolen and Samantha and the stranger disappear. The only clue left behind is a rather peculiar looking arrow, a weapon their local Indian expert identifies as belonging to tribe of cannibalistic troglodytes. Having no alternative but to face these cave-dwelling abominations, Sheriff Hunt, Chicory, Arthur O’Dwyer and the dashing, highly educated gentleman John Brooder (Matthew Fox) head out on a rescue mission.
Bone Tomahawk debuts on limited release and on iTunes and VOD on October 23rd, while the film is part of this month’s London Film Festival.
