Ahead of its release on these shores next month, a new UK trailer has debuted for the cannibal western Bone Tomahawk which stars Kurt Russell, Matthew Fox, Lili Simmons, David Arquette, Richard Jenkins and Patrick Wilson. Take a look below after the official synopsis…
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 is set for release on February 19th in the UK.
