Westerns have been a staple of the American audiences since the early 20th century till even today. With the story set primarily in the late 19th century, the movies focused on the arid, desolate landscape of deserts and mountains and the frequent bouts of clashes between the Sheriff and the outlaws, ranchers protecting their family ranch from rustlers, the American Cavalry fighting the Native American and the countless other stories. From Clint Eastwood’s “The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly” to the modern-day “Django Unchained,” the western genre has come a long way and still seems to be going strong. At this point, the question that might be circling your mind is what are the new westerns coming out this year? Well, the good news is that we have a clear answer to that question. Here’s the list of upcoming westerns scheduled to release in 2019 and 2020. We can only hope that the latest westerns would be as good as some of the older and the recent ones.
