Michael Fassbender rides across the frontier in 'Slow West'

Posted on

Slow West, the Michael Fassbender film from director John Maclean that had this year’s Sundance Film Festival buzzing, finally has a trailer. The Western spans the beautiful landscape of Scotland to the rugged terrain of the frontier following a 16-year-old boy’s quest to track down the girl he loves.

The boy, Jay Cavendish (Kodi Smit-McPhee), finds a chaperone in Silas Selleck (Michael Fassbender) and the two set off on a wild adventure filled with guns, horses, and bows and arrows. But, they find themselves racing against a band of bounty hunters who also happen to be searching for the girl and her father who have a huge reward on their heads. 

Slow West premieres on DirecTV April 16 and opens in theaters and becomes available on VOD May 15.
