Vintage Trailer of the Week 33

As B-List genre auteurs go, Peter Hyams is the Man. Busting, Capricorn One and 2010 are all quality entertainment, and he made some decent movies in the 80s (Running Scared, Narrow Margin) before being claimed by the bloat of the 90s Action Superstar in stuff like Timecop and End of Days.
But in the 70s and early 80s he wrote his own stuff, and Outland is probably his best film, a gritty sci-fi retelling of High Noon with Sean Connery in beautiful middle age in the Gary Cooper role, Peter Boyle as the bad guy and an awesome Jerry Goldsmith score. Cool trailer, too:
