Trailer, poster and exclusive images from Western Religion

Western Religion is set in 1879. Gunfighters from the far reaches of the globe have descended on the mining town of Religion, Arizona to compete in a legendary poker tournament in which their very souls are on the line.

“Having done a run and gun road movie, I wanted to dive into something bigger, something with historic appeal.
