In a Valley of Violence

“Keep your finger on the trigger.”

Are Westerns making a comeback? Is Boothill about to be repopulated?
Recent trends – The Revenant, The Magnificent Seven (2016) – and now In a Valley of Violence receiving some good reviews – seem to say so.
Plus some top line actors – Leonardo DiCaprio, Denzel Washington,
Ethan Hawke … taking part.
We can hope there will be an upswing in interest and involvement. in-the-valley-of-violence-pistol-barin-the-valley-of-violence-poster-1in-the-valley-of-violence-poster-2in-the-valley-of-violence-pistol-bar

94%“?, “95%” Really!? REALLY?? What is this? Ben Hur?

Anyway … yeah. It’s probably OK.

The Bill

Billing will always remain an eternal mystery to me. John Travolta, the major villain in the movie, and judging from the Trailer and the Second Poster, obviously has a large and important role – he is a major draw for the film. So you’d expect him to be Billed almost equal to Ethan Hawke. YET, he’s Billed 5th!!! on the Screen Credits above and on one of the 2 posters – behind Taissa Farmiga (whom I could not even find a decent image of), James Ransone (who?), and Karen Gillan (hardly and household name). Has Travolta become box office poison or something? I wouldn’t say so … *shrug*.

Oh, I notice on the second poster they’ve bumped John up. Good.
