New "3:10 to Yuma" trailer...

So this pretty much solidifies the James Mangold remake as genre fun rather than likely for awards recognition. At the end of the day "3:10 to Yuma" should bolster the peripheral performance opportunities from Russell Crowe ("American Gangster") and Christian Bale ("Rescue Dawn").

Personally, I'm excited as hell at the mini-resurgence of the western, what with "Deadwood" and "Open Range" having come and gone and films like this and "The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford" inching their way to the screen. It's a hell of a genre and one Hollywood should roll the dice on more often than "they" do.



Why is that exactly? Can't a movie be both fun and awards bait? I'd say wait and see the film before passing judgment on what is a very excellent trailer.

I second that. BTW, people were saying the same things about The Departed trailer...

Funny, I thought the same thing. Hopefully, this will show that Westerns can still be profitable AND good. BTW, although I have not read the book yet, I'm anxious to see what Ridley Scott does with Blood Meridian.

True enough about The Departed trailer. But I can't quite see this punching through. The first was a classic after all and in the western era it couldn't manage any awards traction whatsoever.
