A new trailer has been released for David and Nathan Zellner’s upcoming Western comedy Damsel, starring Robert Pattinson, Mia Wasikowska, Robert Forster, David Zellner, Nathan Zellner, and Joseph Biligiere. The film features Pattinson as a love-lorn pioneer heading off on an adventure to save the woman he loves- but things take a turn. This dry comedy takes the Western tropes and flips them on their head, making for a ridiculous and very entertaining experience.
Damsel opens in theaters June 22nd.
Samuel Alabaster (Robert Pattinson), an affluent pioneer, ventures across the American Frontier to marry the love of his life, Penelope (Mia Wasikowska). As Samuel traverses the Wild West with a drunkard named Parson Henry (David Zellner) and a miniature horse called Butterscotch, their once-simple journey grows treacherous, blurring the lines between hero, villain and damsel.
A loving reinvention of the western genre from the Zellner brothers (Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter), DAMSEL showcases their trademark unpredictability, off-kilter sense of humor, and unique brand of humanism.
