Today Magnolia Pictures released the first trailer from their upcoming western-style comedy Damsel. Make sure you check it out below and let us know your thoughts.
In recent years, the modern approach to westerns has taken a more serious route. Being able to see a western comedy not riddled with the humor of Seth MacFarlane gives me cause to hope. Also, seeing Robert Pattinson with a tiny pony is literally an image I never thought I needed until now.
The official synopsis for the film is below:
Samuel Alabaster (Robert Pattinson), an affluent pioneer, ventures across the American Frontier to marry the love of his life, Penelope (Mia Wasikowska). As Samuel traverses the Wild West with a drunkard named Parson Henry (David Zellner) and a miniature horse called Butterscotch, their once-simple journey grows treacherous, blurring the lines between hero, villain, and damsel.
The film was written and directed by Nathan Zellner and David Zellner. The film stars Robert Pattinson, Mia Wasikowska, David Zellner, Robert Forster, Nathan Zellner, and Joseph Biligiere.
Damsel arrives in theaters on June 22, 2018.
