Deadwood: The Movie

While a great deal of chatter about HBO/Sky Atlantic shows is naturally about the debut of the 500,000lb dragon that is Game Of Thrones' final season (which just released its latest poster). But there are those of us who are also excited by the even-longer-awaited return of Deadwood to our screens. A new trailer for the two-hour TV film has pulled into the web station.

With creator David Milch providing the typically verbal and profanity-laden script and veteran Deadwood director Daniel Minahan marshalling the violent, chatty milieu, the film will see characters from the frontier town reunited after ten years to celebrate South Dakota’s statehood. Former rivalries are reignited, alliances are tested and old wounds are reopened, as all are left to navigate the inevitable changes that modernity and time have wrought.

Principle players Ian McShane, Timothy Olyphant, Molly Parker, Paula Malcomson, John Hawkes, Anna Gunn, Dayton Callie, Brad Dourif, Robin Weigert, W. Earl Brown, William Sanderson, Kim Dickens and Gerald McRaney are all back, with new cast member Jade Pettyjohn joining as a character named Caroline.

We finally know when the film will arrive too, as HBO has announced a 31 May air date. Expect it to be shown either simulcast or soon after here in the UK.
