Ballad of Buster Scruggs


Things have a way of escalating in the Wild Wild West — and in Joel and Ethan Coen's films.

Netflix released a new trailer for "The Ballad of Buster Scruggs," the six-part Western anthology movie from the acclaimed directors. Originally conceived of as a series, the film knits together six stories featuring different cast members but connected by the setting and themes.

Tim Blake Nelson stars as the titular character, a sharp-shooting a songster. The other parts focus on a wannabe bank robber, two weary traveling performers, a gold prospector, a woman who finds love on a wagon train, and the passengers of a doomed carriage ride.

As with most Coen brothers' projects, this one boasts an incredible cast including Tyne Daly, James Franco, Brendan GleesonZoe KazanLiam NeesonClancy BrownStephen Root, and Willie Watson.

"The Ballad of Buster Scruggs" is also getting an exclusive theater run (contrary to Netflix's normal process) starting November 8. It begins streaming on the service November 16.
