    James Mangold, director of Walk the Line is remaking a classic western. And in following the tradition of fall movies being more interesting than summer films, please take a look at the trailer (and the cast):

    3:10 to Yuma

    With this, There Will be Blood, No Country for Old Men, Sunshine, and American Gangster, the fall is looking strong. Very strong. Again [​IMG]

    Edit: whoops!

    Looks pretty good. But I don't like how Christian Bale's teenage son is in on it as well. Just seems so unnecessary.

    Nice to see a classic Western coming to theaters again, even if it's a remake — and even if Russell Crowe is no Glenn Ford. There are some really beautiful shots in that trailer.

    This could be the first Mangold film I'd enjoy, though the man has a tendency to boil the flavor out of his films. Anyone else find that the trailer was lacking the very tension that should be the films selling point? Too much gunfire might be the cause. Although I really shouldnt complain, anything western is of interest in my book. I'm just a little disappointed that such a mediocre director has been given the potential to revive the genre. The first 3:10 to Yuma clocked in at a crisp 92 minutes, if this new one comes in at under 100 minutes i'll be impressed.

    Chuck, I noticed that you have Sunshine with those fall releases, but I think it's actually coming out July 20th now. That's what IMDB has, anyway.

    As for 3:10 to Yuma, it has Christian Bale and Crowe is usually great, so I'll see this. I'm not familiar with the original at all, though.

    You got that right. I actually preferred the original casting rumors with Tom Cruise playing Ben Wade and Eric Bana playing the rancher trying to take him to prison.

    I love Russell Crowe - and I'm always more intrigued by him when he plays a slightly bad/or at least ethically gray character than a romantic lead.

    Westerns aren't necessarily something I'm usually chomping at the bit to see, but this actually looks quite good.

    Saw the sneak of this last night with my wife, who was reluctant going in. Afterwards, we both agreed - this is one of the best movies we've seen this year. The acting is very well done and the look of the film just captured us. Highly recommended, and hopefully it is not forgotten in the award season.

    I just watched the original today in preparation for seeing this remake tomorrow. I don't think I'll be disappointed.

    Just got back from this and thought it was fantastic! Action, humor and Alan Tudyk. Didn't even know he was in it.

    Saw this today and I must say I think it is one of the best westerns I've seen in a long time. The look is really authentic, the acting is excellent and Crowe puts in an Oscar worthy performance as a bad guy with lots and lots of layers. And when you add in some really great music I found myself at times getting the same feeling I get when I watch an old spaghetti western. I cannot wait for the DVD.

    Overall, I'd say it's a great movie. I didn't like the ending though. It just feels so unnecessary.

    I didn't like the ending either and thought it ruin the film a little bit for me.
