Get your first look at Godless, a Netflix series from the director of Ocean’s Eleven and Erin Brockovich
The Wild West hides a sinister mystery in this upcoming drama series.
Netflix has dropped the first teaser for its new Wild West drama Godless today, giving us a sneak peek at what the seven-part series has in store when it launches next month.
The trailer maintains a grim tone as it explores the hardships of life in 1880s America. From steely-eyed, pistol-toting bandits to razed battlefields, the show's tag line of "Welcome to No Man's Land" is keenly accurate in summing up what Godless is going for.
Starring Jeff Daniels (The Newsroom) as the outlaw Frank Griffin, Godless follows Griffin as he hunts down his former partner Roy Goode (Jack O'Connell). In seeking revenge on the turncoat, Griffin finds himself riding into La Belle, New Mexico, a town that strangely seems to consist only of women.
Godless comes by way of Steven Soderbergh, the filmmaker behind such critically-acclaimed works as Erin Brockovich, Ocean's Eleven and Magic Mike, and Scott Frank, the writer of Minority Report, Get Shorty and Marley & Me.
All seven episodes of Godless are set to release on Netflix on 22 November.
