Watch: First Trailer Released for The Coen Brothers's Latest, 'The Ballad of Buster Scruggs'

The Coen Brothers' latest sports true grit and old men to spare.

Originally commissioned by Netflix as a six-part TV series, Joel and Ethan Coen's The Ballad of Buster Scruggs became, late in production, a lengthy feature anthology film. Its own form of binge-watching, the anthology film has long been a classic mode of storytelling for a number of adventurous filmmakers, and the latest from the Coens feels like a rather worthy addition to the canon. 

Six tales focused on the wild, wild west, the film is set to open in theaters and stream on Netflix on Friday, November 16th. Given its omnibus nature, it's hard to get too much of a sense of the plot, but quick glimpses of Tim Blake Nelson, Liam Neeson, James Franco, Zoe Kazan, and Brendan Gleeson assure us that its game cast is more than up to the challenge of capturing the Coens' distinctive style and morose quirk.  

The film can be seen next month at the Film Society of Lincoln Center's 56th New York Film Festival (major props if you were able to snag a ticket!) and will then be settling in for an "awards run" later this Fall.
