A new look at the Coen Brothers’ Netflix movie, “The Ballad of Buster Scruggs,” shows what sort of hijinks to expect come November 8 (in theaters) and November 16 (online).
They say there are two kinds of people in the world. But what are those two kinds?

A second trailer for “The Ballad of Buster Scruggs” proposes three different viewpoints that may be explored further over the course of its six interwoven tales — the lucky and unlucky, the pale and frail, and the upright and sinning. And then there’s the larger, overarching distinction separating the alive and the dead.
Originally a six-part series, “Buster Scruggs” is now a single anthology film; one which, as this second trailer tells us, has enjoyed a good amount of success during its film festival prospecting, winning the Best Screenplay trophy at Venice, where it was also nominated for Best Film.
It’s a different, more comic view of the USA’s early years from siblings Joel and Ethan Coen, who previously wrote and directed thriller “No Country for Old Men” (2007) and then manhunt drama “True Grit” (2010), both of which gathered up an armful of Academy Award nominations, “No Country” winning four.
