Cinematical has received a few new photos from the upcoming Appaloosa, and some additional production photos surfaced over at CanMag. While this film is playing at Toronto next month, it doesn't seem to be attracting the buzz that The Road is getting, which is a downright shame. It has a stellar cast (can a combination of Viggo Mortensen, Ed Harris, and Jeremy Irons go wrong?) and it looks like a good, hard Western in the style of Unforgiven. Now, I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with Westerns -- I live on the coyote infested prairie of Colorado, and have grown up around the history and myth of the Wild Wild West my entire life. The genre can be pretty yawn inducing for me, unless it's done right. But this one is keeping my interest. I loved the trailer, and I can't wait to see Mortensen and Harris work together again -- and under Harris' direction, no less.

Appaloosa opens October 3rd, 2008.
