3:10 to Yuma Synopsis


3:10 TO YUMA stars Russell Crowe, Christian Bale, Ben Foster, Gretchen Mol and Peter Fonda in a modern take on the classic western by Elmore Leonard from producing/writing/ directing team Cathy Konrad and James Mangold (WALK THE LINE).

In Arizona in the late 1800's, infamous outlaw Ben Wade (Crowe) and his vicious gang of thieves and murderers have plagued the Southern Railroad. When Wade is captured, Civil War veteran Dan Evans (Christian Bale), struggling to survive on his drought-plagued ranch, volunteers to deliver him alive to the "3:10 to Yuma", a train that will take the killer to trial. On the trail, Evans and Wade, each from very different worlds, begin to earn each other’s respect. But with Wade’s outfit on their trail – and dangers at every turn – the mission soon becomes a violent, impossible journey toward each man's destiny.



It’s a remake, but one with talent behind it. Directed by James Mangold coming off a Walk the Line high and starring the likes of Russell Crowe, Christian Bale, Peter Fonda, Alan Tudyk, and Gretchen Mol, 3:10 to Yuma is a must-see.

The question is will anyone see it? Westerns are well and truly dead baby, even though we’ve had some great entries in the genre over the past couple of years. Well okay, we’ve had one great entry: Kevin Costner and Robert Duvall’s kickass cattle wrangling movie Open Range. A Western that good should have re-invigorated the genre, except sadly few bothered to buy a ticket. Open Range is already all but forgotten, and so is the niche saddlesore movies used to have at the theater.

With a loaded cast stacked with more relevant stars 3:10 to Yuma is sure to get more attention than Open Range did, I just hope it’s good enough to justify it. Russell Crowe’s track record when it comes to resurrecting dead genres isn’t exactly a stellar one. Master and Commander may have been the best sea battle movie ever filmed, but unless you count those godawful Pirates sequels you don’t see a rush from Hollywood to start churning out sword and sail movies again.

The material is there, the talent is there; will audiences be there, or is the world simply well and truly done with Westerns?
