Netflix Drops Second Look for The Ballad of Buster Scruggs

Do you like Westerns? What about obviously stylized films? The Coen brothers? Well, boy howdy, if’n you said yes to all three of those questions then you’re in for a treat. Netflix dropped the second trailer for the Coen brother’s latest piece, The Ballad of Buster Scruggs. Blessed with character actors pulled from every corner of the white acting world, viewers will spot Liam Neeson, Brendan Gleeson, Tim Blake Nelson, James Franco, Tom Waits, and Tyne Daly among others.

Notably absent from this story are any prominent actors of color, and the presence of the displaced Native American tribes save for the hint of an attack.

Still, if a cast so white that the west becomes a winter wonderland doesn’t deter you, look to see the Coen brother’s signature stylings, dialog, and wacky hijinks that seem far more reminiscent of Fargo and The Ladykillers than No Country for Old Men. The Ballad of Buster Scruggs is set as an anthology piece, revolving around six separate but presumably connected stories of white people who lived in the American West.

The Ballad of Buster Scruggs will open in very limited theatrical engagements on November 8 and will drop on Netflix by November 16.
