Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren battled through the Old West on Sunday when Paramount aired the first trailer for its Yellowstone spin-off series 1923.

The legendary Ford, 80, and the Oscar-winning Mirren, 77, have officially entered the sprawling universe of Yellowstone as they anchor the latest chapter in the Dutton family’s origin story.

The iconic actors play the central pair of Jacob and Cara Dutton, who struggle to keep their ranching empire during the titular year of 1923.

According to an official plot synopsis released by Paramount+, the show is set during ‘the early 20th century when pandemics, historic drought, the end of Prohibition and the Great Depression all plague the mountain west, and the Duttons who call it home.’

‘You have no rights here,’ growls Mirren’s Cara Dutton at the start of the trailer. 

Talk of a ‘range war’ soon takes hold as the Duttons come into conflict with Timothy Dalton’s wealthy new neighbor named Donald Whitfield. 

Decadence, dust, guns and grit abound throughout the 90-second trailer as Harrison and Helen fully inhabit their tough-talking characters. 

‘Men kill quick with a bullet or a noose,’ says Mirren, affecting an Irish purr. ‘But your fight is with me and I kill much slower.’

Not a fedora, but maybe a bullwhip: The iconic Harrison Ford looked right at home in the Old West as he donned a felt hat to inhabit the role of John Dutton

The Western rides again: It all combines to create an exhilarating rush of suspense and adventure as the Old West is thoroughly brought to life once again by Yellowstone mastermind Taylor Sheridan ¿ the creative force who has revived the Western genre, almost singlehandedly

Pistols are drawn and bodies are buried in the first glimpses of 1883. 

Other highlights include sweeping landscapes and a conflict with Native Americans, and an African lion even roars out of a bush in the final few seconds of the trailer. 

‘You are no god Jacob Dutton!’ shouts one angry cowboy at Harrison Ford. 

‘Tell the world what happens when they cross me,’ Ford says at one point in his signature rasp.  

‘Greed will be the thing that kills us all,’ declares Mirren near the end.

Premiering December 18th on Paramount+, 1923 is the second Yellowstone prequel after last year’s 1883. 

That show tracked the Dutton’s as they traveled to Montana and fought to found the family ranch. 

It starred real-life couple Tim McGraw and Faith Hill as the central couple James and Margaret Dutton, with Sam Elliot riding in to play their wagon train’s rugged leader. 

Yellowstone’s fifth season premiered earlier this month, garnering 12.1 million viewers and cementing its place as a pop culture juggernaut. 

The star that started it all remains Kevin Costner, 67, who reportedly anchors Yellowstone for a fee of $1.3 million per episode.   

1923 looks like it will be a surefire hit for the storied pair of stars that have saddled up to tell the tale.

‘You attack my family,’ says Harrison, ‘It’s gonna be the last thing you ever do.’
