Watch Trailer for Gunslinger Western ‘Hickok’

Gunslinger Western Movie

“Every man’s got his demons.” I can’t say this one brings anything new to the genre, but Cinedigm has released the first official trailer for yet another western movie called Hickok (aka Abilene).

Directed by Timothy Woodward Jr., the film stars Luke Hemsworth as the titular “Wild” Bill Hickok, alongside Trace Adkins, Kris Kristofferson and Bruce Dern. It actually seems like a gritty western straight out of the 90s as bullets aplenty are fired and lawlessness threatens the small town of Abilene, Kansas. The script was written by Michael Lanahan.

Hickok is set to open theatrically on July 7th in ten markets including Los Angeles, Chicago, Kansas City and Dallas, and On Demand and Digital HD the same day. Watch the trailer below.

Attempts to protect the town are soon challenged when a band of outlaws threaten Wild Bill and the laws he administered. Among the outlaws are powerful saloon owner Phil Poe (Trace Adkins), whose relationship with Bill’s ex-lover (Cameron Richardson) stirs tension. Poe puts a bounty on Wild Bill’s head but with the help of lawman Hardin aka Little Arkansas, Wild Bill sets out to fight the villainous bandits and save Abilene from danger.
