Wind River Trailer: From the Writer of Sicario

windriver

After making a name for himself as the screenwriter of both Sicario and Hell or High Water, Taylor Sheridan is now stepping behind the camera for a movie called Wind River. It’s not actually his directorial debut (he previously directed a horror movie called Vile in 2011) but this is much more in line with his recent scripts in that it is a tense thriller with a western vibe. The movie takes place in Wyoming where a US Fish and Wildlife Service agent (Jeremy Renner) discovers a body and must team up with a rookie FBI agent (Elizabeth Olsen) to track down the killer. It received strong reviews at Sundance earlier this year and now The Weinsteins seem to be positioning it as a potential awards contender. Wind River hits select theatres on Aug. 4th; check out the trailer after the jump and let us know what you think.
