Robert Pattinson is looking to reunite with his bride-to-be (Mia Wasikowska) in the newly-released trailer for the quirky western movie "Damsel," which hails from the Zellner brothers, the filmmakers behind the cult Fargo-related mystery film "Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter."

Here, the former "Twilight" and "Good Time" star plays an oddball pioneer named Samuel Alabaster. With a miniature horse by his side, Samuel strolls into an Old West town to search for the woman he loves and wants desperately to marry, named Penelope (played here by "Alice in Wonderland" star Mia Wasikowska).

But soon after he partners up with a down-on-his-luck clergyman (played by David Zellner, who also co-directed and co-wrote the film with his brother Nathan Zellner), Samuel discovers Penelope doesn't quite have the same affectionate feelings for him as he does for her. Which completely wrecks Samuel's plans for the future.

Co-starring Robert Forster, "Damsel," which premiered to mostly positive reviews at Sundance this year, is now getting a theatrical release on June 22nd. Watch the trailer, above.

It's the age of The Wild West, circa 1870. An affluent pioneer, Samuel Alabaster (Robert Pattinson) ventures deep into the American wilderness to reunite with and marry the love of his life, Penelope (Mia Wasikowska). For his journey he brings Butterscotch, a miniature horse intended as a wedding present for his bride, and enlists drunkard Parson Henry (David Zellner) to conduct the ceremony. As they traverse the lawless frontier their once simple journey grows treacherous, and the lines between hero, villain, and damsel are blurred.

A loving reinvention of the western genre from the Zellner brothers (Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter), DAMSEL showcases their trademark unpredictability, off-kilter sense of humor, and unique brand of humanism.
