Everybody has different tastes, and unlike some of my writing colleagues I have honestly never been a fan of westerns, although from time to time one comes along that completely makes me forgot about my dislike for the genre. Jane Got a Gun looks like it might just be one of those.
The story goes as follows:
Jane Hammond (Natalie Portman) has built a new life with her husband Bill “Ham” Hammond (Noah Emmerich) after being tormented by the Bishop Boys gang. She finds herself in the gang’s crosshairs once again when Ham stumbles home riddled with bullets after dueling with the Boys and their relentless leader, Colin (Ewan McGregor). With the vengeful crew hot on Ham’s trail, Jane has nowhere to turn but to her former fiancé Dan Frost (Joel Edgerton) for help in defending her family against certain death. Haunted by old memories, Jane’s past meets the present in a heart-stopping battle for survival.
That trailer looks really intense and I must add that Ewan McGregor looks quite menacing. This could just be one of those movies that leave me rethinking everything I ever thought about Westerns.
Jane Got a Gun releases on 29 January 2016.
