‘Wind River’ Trailer: Taylor Sheridan’s Directorial Debut Looks Excellent

In the past two years, two of the best crime dramas to come out of Hollywood were Sicario and Hell or High Water, both written by Taylor Sheridan. Now, Sheridan has his directorial debut, Wind River, and this first trailer is simply magnificent.

Check it out:


An FBI agent teams with the town’s veteran game tracker to investigate a murder that occurred on a Native American reservation.

There are echoes of a dozen movies in here. I see a little Thunderheart, Shoot to Kill, Fargo… the list goes on and on. But it’s written and directed by Taylor Sheridan, which adds another element of anticipation.

Wind River stars Jeremy Runner and Elizabeth Olsen, the great Graham Greene, and the great Jon Bernthal. The reunion of Hawkeye and Scarlet Witch is intriguing, and the setting makes for plenty of tension. Looks cold AF there…

Wind River is currently at Cannes, and will hit theaters stateside August 4. About the same time Hell or High Water released.
