New western to the big screen – Appaloosa


Four time Oscar nominee Ed Harris is bringing Robert B. Parker’s western drama Appaloosa to the big screen on September 17, 2008.

Appaloosa is about two friends that have been hired to protect a town from a ruthless rancher. Things get more complicated when a lovely widow arrives in town. Starring opposite Harris will be Viggo Mortenson (Lord of the Rings).

  1. I highly reccomend Robert B. Parker’s book APPALOOSA. I haven’t seen the movie yet but I know, judging from the book and the trailers it will be great. Hopefully everyone will get out and see it and therefore show support for the latest (of few) westerns. Hope it will be successful so Ed Harris turns the followup book, RESOLUTION into a movie.

  2. I’m back to report on the new western movie APPALOOSA. I recently saw it (ok, ok, I saw it twice…) It was all I had hoped for in a GREAT traditional western. City Marshal Virgil Cole and Deputy Everett Hitch are natural buddies and that relationship makes the story a classic. Good gun action, especially with the 8 gauge shotgun Hitch carries..WOW! Folks, try to get out and see this great film. It’s less likely we’ll see more unless we support them when they come around. Oh, and by the way, started reading Parker’s follow-up book RESOLUTION, and OOHHH!! what a movie it would make!
