John Hillcoat of The Road and The Proposition is further cultivating his Western sensibilities with an upcoming 30-minute animated trailer for Red Dead Redemption.
The Futon Critic notes that FOX will air the Red Dead Redemption special at 12:00 PM / 11:00 PM central on Saturday, May 15, with director Hillcoat at the helm. The short film is machinima-based, which means that it was created entirely within the Rockstar Games gaming engine. Nifty!
Red Dead Redemption follows John Marston, a former outlaw bringing the rule of law to bear across the American frontier after his family is threatened by federal agents. You can watch the trailer for the Red Dead Redemption video game, slated for release in May, below.
