After not starring in any Westerns during his long career Nic Cage is making up for lost time. Earlier this year the acclaimed actor starred in The Old Way which was your typical Western Revenge film, with a few wrinkles. Now, the actor is back in the Old West, this time as a buffalo hunter in Butchers Crossing. Much like The Old Way, the premise may seem standard Western fare. But based on the trailer, audiences will be in for something a little more. The film is based on the 1960 novel of the same name by John Edward Williams. Butchers Crossing premiered at the Toronto Film Festival earlier in September and will make its way to theatres on October 20. Keep reading to check out the new trailer and also some first-look images from the upcoming Western.



Based on the seminal novel by John Edward Williams, Gabe Polsky’s epic frontier adventure, Butcher’s Crossing, is a riveting commentary on human nature, ambition, masculinity, and man’s relationship to his natural environment. Academy Award™ winner Nicolas Cage (1996, Best Actor, Leaving Las Vegas) stars in a gritty story about buffalo hunters in the Old West. Will Andrews (Fred Hechinger) has left Harvard to find adventure. He teams up with Miller (Cage), a mysterious frontiersman offering an unprecedented number of buffalo pelts in a secluded valley. Their crew must survive an arduous journey where the harsh elements will test everyone’s resolve, leaving their sanity on a knife’s edge.
