Nicolas Cage heads to Butcher’s Crossing in the trailer for the new Western

Academy Award winner Nicolas Cage 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.

Directed by Gabe Polsky, the film is based on John Edward Williams’  1960 novel of the same name. I love the book and saw the film earlier this year at the Manchester Film Festival. While it is a solid adaptation, I did feel it was hampered by a low budget. You can read my full review here.

The film stars Nicolas Cage, Fred Hechinger, Xander Berkeley, Rachel Keller, Jeremy Bobb, and Paul Raci.

Butcher’s Crossing opens in select US cinemas on 20th October 2023.
