‘Godless’ Trailer: Jeff Daniels Heads Out West For Netflix

- Advertisement -

Netflix has a new limited Western series, Godless, on the horizon. This is reason to rejoice inane of itself. Throw Jeff Daniels into the mix and, well, you have my full, unadulterated attention.

Here is a quick trailer for Godless, which starts off slowly and builds to a few thrilling shots at the end. Oh, and there’s a truly unnerving moment with a baby in here, all in the span of a minute! Check it out:

Notorious criminal Frank Griffin (Jeff Daniels) and his gang of outlaws are on a mission of revenge against Roy Goode (Jack O’Connell), a son-like protégé who betrayed the brotherhood. While on the run, Roy seeks refuge with hardened widower Alice Fletcher (Michelle Dockery), an outcast herself, in a worn-down, isolated mining town of La Belle, NM — governed mainly by women. When word reaches La Belle that Griffin is headed their way, the town bands together to defend against the murderous gang in a lawless western frontier.

Yeah so that scene with the baby and the rattlesnake had me leaning back from my computer.

Aside from Daniels, Godless has a fantastic supporting cast that includes the aforementioned JackO’Connell and Michelle Dockery the underrated Scoot McNairy, Sam Waterston, and Kim Coates. Oh, and did we mention Steven Soderberghis executive producer? Well, it is, and it’s written and directed by Logan scribe Scott Frank.

It’s Netflix’s first limited series and will drop on November 22, so plan accordingly Western fans.
