trailer break: ‘Appaloosa’

Take a break from work: watch a movie trailer…

It’s Unforgiven meets Shanghai Noon… without the laughs!

This is the second movie from Ed Harris as a director (after 2000’s Pollack), and — kidding aside — it looks like my kind of movie, full of action and emotion and, well, Viggo Mortensen. I have to admit, though, that the first thing that brought this flick onto my radar was seeing this poster in the multiplex recently:

And my first thought was, Who the hell is that cadaver on the left? And it turns out it’s Viggo. He doesn’t look that pallid in the trailer, so I’m guessing someone decided that a corpselike Mortensen would somehow sell the film better, and they did a bit of Photoshopping on him. Still: that’s weird, isn’t it?

Appaloosa opens September 19 in New York, Los Angeles, and Toronto, everywhere October 3.
