Viggo Mortensen seemed a bit sleepy in his appearance on the CBS Early Show on Wednesday, Sept. 10. I really enjoyed his comments about carrying around the 8 gauge shotgun.
The first day I said to Ed, "Look, I know it's in the book; it's an important part of the character. But it's a big gun, and it's going to be a long couple of months if I've got to do this every day." But by the second day I kinda liked it. And I said I want to have it everywhere. I want to have it when I'm in bed, when I'm having dinner, when I'm walking down the street. And it is kind of intimidating. It was like my scary friend, you know. It had a psychological effect. It's like that thing that you fight sometimes—the obstacle becomes your friend. So it was all right.

Entertainment Weekly (EW) has a one-page "First Look" at Appaloosa in their August 15th issue and another short in their special Fall Preview Issue, on the newsstands now. Visit the Viggo-Works forum for a scan of the 8/15 page and then scroll down five posts for a scan of the second. Thanks, Viggo-Works! And visit EW to rate the Appaloosa trailer.
Look for an article about Appaloosa in the September issue of Cowboys & Indians magazine. Joe Leydon writes:
I viewed a rough cut of Appaloosa about a month ago, prior to interviewing Viggo Mortensen and Ed Harris for our next issue (on sale -- hint, hint! - Sept. 2 at fine newsstands everywhere). The Warners publicists asked me not to comment on the film itself until closer to its world premiere next month at the Toronto Film Festival, so I can't tell you how good it is, and how terrific Mortensen and Harris (and Renee Zellweger and Jeremy Irons) are in the lead roles, and how it's an even better Western than last year's 3:10 to Yuma remake.
We are so ready!! Post a comment to let us know if you find more Appaloosa articles out there!

The publicity for Appaloosa, starring Viggo Mortensen and Ed Harris, is building fast. According to Rope of Silicon, "Warner Bros. just sent in their preview kit for their Fall/Holiday 2008 season and it includes new pics and information for seven of their upcoming films including Appaloosa." The same article gives the release dates as "In theatres on September 17 (NY/LA/Toronto) and October 3 (wide)," which is earlier than previous reports.
We've added several new stills to our Appaloosa photo gallery, along with links to more.

Appaloosa, starring Viggo Mortensen, Ed Harris, Jeremy Irons and Reneé Zellweger, is coming soon! This western is based on the novel by Robert B. Parker. The trailer was released earlier this week. You can watch the YouTube version below, or go to our Appaloosa page to find a link to trailer downloads and lots more information on the film. We've gathered photographs, screencapped two dozen scenes from the high definition (1080p) trailer, and dug up links to the best resources we can find.
Appaloosa is scheduled to premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival this September, with the theater release starting October 3rd.
Sounds terrific to me! What do you think? Is Appaloosa going to get you to the theaters?
