THE HIT VIDEO GAME COMES TO LIFE ON "RED DEAD REDEMPTION"
SATURDAY, MAY 29, ON FOX
The year is 1910. The West is dying. The American frontier is undergoing a violent transition from the ways of old to modern times, and Mexico has entered a prolonged period of bloody civil war. Reformed outlaw John Marston is on his way to capture former running buddy Bill Williamson when he comes upon a half dead snake oil merchant named West Dickens. Marston travels under a bleak and unforgiving sun, teaming up with a violent sheriff and a colorful mentally deranged grave robber and together they discover a bloody massacre of homesteaders left in the wake of Williamson. They hatch a plan to break into an abandoned fort where the Williamson Gang is holed up � and a dark, surprising twist ensues. Director John Hillcoat, craftsman of the savage western "The Proposition" and the recent film adaptation of Cormac McCarthy's "The Road" uses the world of Red Dead Redemption to make a short film that is a compelling cinematic triumph. Catch the epic battle for survival in "Red Dead Redemption," an animated special airing Saturday, May 29 (Midnight-12:30 AM ET/PT) on FOX. (SP-1041) (TV-14 L, V)
