Wait, what?  This isn’t based on the Aerosmith song? It’s about a homesteading wife whose husband is filled with bullets so she seeks out a sharp-shooter to help her finish off the band of bad guys before they return to finish the job?  And the bad guy is Ewan McGregor?

YOU MEAN THIS MOVIE IS ABOUT PADME TRYING TO KILL OBI-WAN?!?!

Oh hell yes.
