Today is the one-two punch of trailers for the worst films I saw at Sundance this year. Earlier, we got the trailer for The Lifeguard, and now we have Sweetwater (which will be called “Sweet Vengeance” in some territories). The western stars January Jones as a frontier woman who hunts down a religious fanatic Prophet Josiah (Jason Isaacs) when he murders her husband over a land dispute. Ed Harris co-stars as a crafty lawman who’s hunting down Josiah for different reasons. The trailer desperately tries to give off a Django Unchained vibe by highlighting the violence, but there are plenty of violent westerns. Sweetwater is one of the really shitty ones.
Hit the jump to check out some new images along with the trailer to see what I mean. Sweetwater currently has no domestic release date, although I wouldn’t be surprised if it were dumped directly to video.
