On Tuesday, January 17, the world premiere of the Western Gunfight at Rio Bravo was held in Tucson, Arizona at the Loft Theater. Attendees included star/producer/WorldFilmGeek Hall of Famer Alexander Nevsky, director Joe Cornet, and co-stars Natalie Denise Sperl and Kerry Goodwin.
Nevsky said, “When we were making Gunfight at Rio Bravo in 2021, I fell in love with Arizona, and we made another one (Taken from Rio Bravo) in 2022, so we made two already. This is the first one, and I’m very happy to present it.”
Cornet said, “I love shooting in Arizona. We filmed at a marvelous place called Gammon’s Gulch (close to the legendary Tombstone) and I love shooting there,” said film director Joe Cornet. “The people are so wonderful. We have a bunch of Arizona locals that we use both in crew, actors, backgrounds, extras. This is marvelous, and I’m glad to be back for the premiere.”
When mysterious Russian gunslinger Ivan Turchin (Nevsky) rides into a small Texas town, he runs afoul of a bloodthirsty outlaw gang known as The Hellhounds. Outmanned and outgunned, the town must put their trust in Turchin to protect them from annihilation at the hands of the bandits. The gunslinger finds allies in the form of Marshal Austin Carter (Olivier Gruner) and Sheriff Vernon Kelly (Cornet), and together the three must make a desperate stand against impossible and violent odds.
The film is now out in select theaters, DVD, On Demand, and Digital from Shout! Studios.
Special Thanks to Alexander Nevsky for providing these wonderful news.
