James Franco Stars As A Cowboy In The New Cohen Brothers Movie Trailer


Few things in the movie industry top a good Western, a genre as old as cinema itself and the springboard for blockbuster actors like Clint Eastwood. 

Well now we’ve got a brand new cowboy flick to look forward to, and damn, does it look pretty special.

With the Cohen brothers at the helm of production, it’s pretty much guaranteed to be a success, so we’ve got astronomically high hopes for The Ballad of Buster Scruggs.

It’s been described as a six part anthology movie, discussing different aspects of the old west and will see James Franco take on a leading role.

You can watch the trailer below.

Judging by the trailer, Franco is going to be his usual smart-mouthed character. Also seems that he’s going to have his head in a noose pretty regularly.

The actual cinematography looks pretty mind-blowing too.

The movie will drop on Netflix November 16, and will also appear in selected theatres.

Netflix has recently faced backlash over its new movie, Sierra Burgess is a Loser, with a petition being launched asking the streaming service to remove the film.

Some people are claiming that the flick, which basically tells the story of a Catfish, should be removed due to its “offensive jokes, slut-shaming and non-consensual kissing”.
