wind river trailer

Wind River is a brutal and somber neo-Western punctured with sudden bursts of violence, similar to director and screenwriter Talor Sheridan‘s previous films that he penned, Hell or High Water and Sicario. A high-speed action movie it is not, yet that is what the final trailer for Wind River makes it out to be.

The final trailer for Wind River hit the internet a day before the film goes into wide release after premiering at select theaters across the country. The movie, while great, is admittedly hard to market to a summer audience — hence the trailer making it look like a spiritual sequel to Renner’s own Bourne Legacy.

Wind River Trailer

August and September are often (and rightfully) viewed as studio dumping grounds, the place where films that don’t fit the summer and awards season molds get tossed. But sometimes, this is the perfect time to release a smaller movie that could vanish between the cracks elsewhere in the year. It’s even the ideal time to release a serious-minded thriller for adults that was a hit on the festival scene earlier in the year.

Enter Wind River, a mystery about an FBI agent (Elizabeth Olsen) and an experienced tracker (Jeremy Renner) trying to solve a murder on Native American reservation. We dug the movie at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year and the scorching heat of August feels like the right time to watch a movie set entirely in the ice and snow. If you want to know more, a bunch of clips and featurettes have arrived to herald the film’s release today.

Taylor Sheridan knows how to write a taut thriller. The screenwriter behind Hell or High Water and Sicario tells stories that are heavy on mood and character. His plots are remarkably simple, with his characters carrying most of the weight. His first two produced scripts showed an exceptionally strong grasp of character and tension, so of course, we’re excited to see what he can accomplish behind the camera with his directorial debut, Wind River.

James Mangold directing The Wolverine

James Mangold (Logan) will direct a remake of a French-Belgian movie not enough people saw in 2015, Disorder. It’s a very good and very atmospheric and sparse thriller from director Alice Winocour. Last year, screenwriter Taylor Sheridan (Hell or High Water) was tapped to write the American remake for Sony. After the script crossed Mangold’s desk, he signed up immediately to direct the film, which sounds like it’ll take some significant departures from the original.

Wind River Trailer

After writing the acclaimed films Sicario and Hell or High Water, screenwriter Taylor Sheridan has tried his hand at directing a suspenseful thriller of his own.

Wind River follows Jeremy Renner as US Fish & Wildlife agent Cory Lambert working on the Wind River Indian Reservation in Wyoming. When he finds the body of a young woman in the mountains, an FBI agent (Elizabeth Olsen) is brought in to help solve what looks like a homicide. She’s a rookie and this her first big case, which means she’s unprepared to deal with the harsh environment of Wind River in the winter, both literally and figuratively. The two must work together if they’re going to figure out who committed this crime.

sicario sequel

Filming wraps on the Sicario sequel, titled Soldado, in a couple of days in Mexico City. Just the other day, Academy Award-nominated screenwriter Taylor Sheridan (Hell or High Water) gave an update on the project, saying, “If Sicario is a film about the militarization of police and that blending over, this is removing the policing aspect from it.” Soldado deals heavily with immigration, so Sheridan and producer Basil Iwanyk (John Wick: Chapter Two) believe the sequel is relevant in more than a few ways. Iwanyk is also confident the sequel is bigger, has more “bells and whistles,” and digs deeper into the characters. Below, learn more about the Sicario sequel. Read More »

SICARIO sequel

Emily Blunt isn’t returning for the Sicario sequel, titled Soldado (translation: soldier). Kate Macer (Blunt) has an arc which is completed by the end of the film, but some people were still understandably disappointed we won’t see this world any longer through her eyes. With director Stefano Sollima‘s sequel, writer Taylor Sheridan (Hell or High Water) wants to ask: Without a chaperone, how bad do Alejandro (Benicio Del Toro) and Matt (Josh Brolin) get?

Below, the Academy Award-nominated screenwriter discusses the Sicario sequel.

Wind River Review

In the past two years, Taylor Sheridan has delivered acclaimed crime thrillers as the screenwriter behind the 2015 drug trafficking hit Sicario and last year’s award-worthy heist thriller Hell or High Water. Now he’s made his directorial debut at Sundance.

Wind River follows stoic and skilled fish and wildlife service agent Cory Lambert (Jeremy Renner) as he discovers a young woman’s body in the snowy mountains of Wyoming while on assignment to find a pack of mountain lions who have been wreaking havoc on the local livestock of the titular Indian reservation. What follows is a crime thriller that feels like an extended episode of a crime procedural, but takes a shocking, and thrilling turn.

Hell or High Water Trailer

Ben Foster and Chris Pine play incredibly convincing brothers in David Mackenzie‘s knockout drama, Hell or High Water, written by Sicario scribe Taylor Sheridan. Tanner (Foster) and Toby (Pine) have their differences, but they’re definitely from the same family. Their mutual trust, their shorthand, their inside jokes, and how they express themselves — they’re cut from the same cloth. The criminals are far from heroes, but their tight bond makes them surprisingly empathetic in Hell or High Water, which hits home video tomorrow. To celebrate the release, we’ve been premiering a clip from one of the film’s bonus features.

Below, watch a clip from a Hell or High Water featurette.
