The Rifleman #3 - Alex Toth art

The Rifleman v1 #3, 1960 - After many years away, a young boy's older brother returns with his unscrupulous new friends. Alex Toth's drawings on this short story are loose and somewhat imprecise. His layouts are straightforward, bordering on monotonous. The overall results are less than adequate, but pale in comparison to Toth's other Dell works from the same period. This comic is based on the [Author: Ted F]

‘The Brigands of Rattlecreek’: Park Chan-wook Directing Violent Western for Amazon, Matthew McConaughey Eyed to Star

Years before writer S. Craig Zahler made his directorial debut with his ultra-violent western Bone Tomahawk, he sold a screenplay for a different ultra-violent western called The Brigands of Rattleborge, which had Oldboy director Park Chan-wook lined up to direct way back in 2012. Despite the script being on The Black List in 2006, the project was stuck in development hell for years, but now Amazon has picked it up with a slightly-altered name: The Brigands of Rattlecreek. Park is back in the d...

The “lake effect” has dropped more snow than I’m used to seeing during this time of year. So for me, I’m looking forward to returning home to dry land.

How to Design a Good Sci-Fi Space Helmet: An Interview With the Filmmakers of ‘Prospect’

Prospect is a bold, unique indie film (read /Film editor Jacob Hall’s review of the film from SXSW). It’s a low-budget sci-fi western that relies heavily on practical effects to tell its story. In this day and age, that’s a rarity. It’s particularly impressive because when you use practical props, sets, and effects, you have to deal with a lot of inconveniences on set, like figuring how to work with actors that need to be in helmets and space suits for eight or twelve hours per day. That’s daun...

British Isil fighters surrender to US-backed forces amid Baghuz offensive

British fighters are among hundreds of Islamic State jihadists who surrendered to Western-backed forces in eastern Syria, a senior commander has said.  Some 400-500 people, including Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) fighters left the village of Baghuz on Monday, in the latest sign that fanatical resistance inside the terror group's last village is crumbling.   “There are different nationalities: Iraqi, French, Russian, English. I don’t have the exact number at this moment, but the...

Paul Schrader’s Next Film Is a ‘Neo-Meta Western’; Ethan Hawke No Longer Involved

When last we spoke of Paul Schrader‘s next film, Nine Men from Now, Schrader was hoping that his First Reformed star Ethan Hawke would star alongside Willem Dafoe. Now, Schrader has an update. The film is still happening, but sadly, Hawke is out. But Schrader does have a fun new description of the film: a Western that plays out as if Terrence Malick and David Lynch came in and took a shit on the script. Who wouldn’t want to see that? During a recent Q&A (via IndieWire), Paul Schrader gave a ...

‘Deadwood’ Movie Plot Teased by Ian McShane, Including a Returning Villain

After years of waiting, the Deadwood movie is almost here. I still can’t believe it myself, and I probably won’t fully accept it until I’ve actually sat down to watch it. For now, though, I can take solace in some new plot details from Al Swearengen himself, Ian McShane. McShane reaffirmed some things we’ve heard already: that the movie is all about the passage of time, and how much the surviving characters have changed since we last saw them. Get the Deadwood movie plot details below. Deadw...

HBO’s Long-Awaited ‘Deadwood’ Movie Will Arrive This Spring

Fans have been waiting a long time to see a Deadwood movie bring David Milch‘s western world back to HBO. The series ended in 2006, but chatter about a movie kept emerging on and off over the past few years. Amazingly, production actually began last fall, and fans won’t have to wait very long before they get to see what’s happening 10 years following the events of the series finale in Deadwood, South Dakota.

Paul Greengrass and Tom Hanks Looking to Reunite For Civil War Western ‘News of the World’

Paul Greengrass and Tom Hanks worked together on the harrowing Captain Phillips, and now they’re hoping to get the band back together for News of the World, based on the novel by Paulette Jiles – a Western set in the aftermath of the Civil War. This would be a bit of a departure for Greengrass, who has spent the last few years helming either films based on real-life events and tragedies, or Bourne sequels. Paul Greengrass directing Tom Hanks in a Western? That might be pretty damn cool. Vari...

Netflix’s Midwestern Gothic ‘The Devil All The Time’ Has a Ridiculously Star-Studded Cast

Paul Schrader has never gone away, but his career is encountering a sudden upswing thanks to his acclaimed 2018 film First Reformed. So what’s next for Schrader?

Huawei's Poland Crisis Threatens to Intensify Spying Concerns

Huawei Technologies Co. cut loose a sales director arrested in Poland on suspicion of espionage, moving swiftly to distance itself from a case that may crystallize fears the telecoms giant helps Beijing spy on Western governments. Chinese’s largest technology company fired Wang Weijing, who was responsible for sales to public sector clients, saying the incident has brought Huawei “into disrepute,” without elaborating.

Wild Women, Forty Pricks, and Western Noir

None Film critic Manny Farber, in typical inimitable style, summarized much of Samuel Fuller's film oeuvre through simultaneous praise and critique in the following observation: "What's good about his films is lovable; the daring, uninhibited use of semidocumentary techniques that save the movie from Fuller's mind, an unthinking morass at best" (Negative Space: Manny Farber on the Movies (New York: De Capo Press, 1998, 132).

Britain left in dark over US withdrawal from Afghanistan

Britain was not told of American plans to withdraw up to half its troops from Afghanistan, with officials only hearing of the abrupt shift by its closest military ally from news reports. The decision caused surprise and unease among Western diplomats in Kabul, with one warning it was an early Christmas present to the Taliban. Only hours before reports of the plan, the head of the British armed forces had said he believed Donald Trump would not announce a major troop withdrawal, as he had from Sy...

‘Deadwood’ Movie Photos Prove This is Finally, Really Happening

When it comes to the Deadwood movie, I’ve always maintained a “I’ll believe it when I see it” mentality.

Now I think I can finally start to accept reality, because the first Deadwood movie photos have surfaced, proving that yes, it’s really happening. EW has our first look at official Deadwood mov...
