Movie Preview: The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford

I first told you about this movie in my Fall Movie Preview that focused on the Westerns that are coming out this fall, and gave you all a glimpse of the ever-handsome Brad Pitt playing Jesse James. The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford has Brad Pitt and Casey Affleck costarring as Jesse James and Robert Ford. From the title, you can kind of tell what happens, so I was intrigued to watch the trailer to find out exactly what else this movie entailed.

The trailer is slow-moving and ominous, with Affleck convincingly portraying Robert Ford — a member of Jesse James' group who becomes resentful of James and vows to get rid of him —as someone with a lot of sketchy stuff simmering just beneath the surface. I'm looking forward to watching these two play off each other (along with the other cast members, like Mary-Louise Parker and Zooey Deschanel) when Assassination opens September 21. To see the preview,

People will watch this just to see Brad. I would even if I didn't like the old west.

I really want to see this. It looks really good to me. I don't particularly like westerners, but I'm from the Midwest original and some of the stories intrigue me because of the history and this is one of them. Can't wait. Casey Affleck is very impressive in the trailer too.

It looks pretty good. I like Casey Affleck, and although I am not Brad's biggest fan, I do think he was great in Fight Club and Se7en. :)

that is one very long movie title, not a fan of western flicks so this is a pass for me.

Do I spy a Casey Affleck? This is suddenly a must-see, although it doesn't look nearly as fun as 3:10 to Yuma.

Pretentious title, i think i'm the only one who really thinks this movie will not only suck but will be a box office dud too.
