Trailer park: The Assassination of Jesse James


The above trailer for The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford has been available on line for several weeks. But now there's a new trailer on the Internet -- and, to my mind, it's even more encouraging. Can't wait to see this Western when it opens in limited release Sept. 21. Literally: I can't wait. That's why I hope to catch it early next month at the Toronto Film Festival.

I agree Joe, the new trailer is beautiful - the comparisons to Days of Heaven that some people are making are not far off the mark. But I'm afraid ( and I hope that I'm proven wrong ) that young Mr. Affleck may be in way over his head.

But maybe that will work in his favor. After all, isn't Robert Ford supposed to be in way over his head? (Cue the Elton John song...)
