Tombstone (1993) Cast: Then and Now ★ 2023 by HollywoodNuts

Kurt Russell and Val Kilmer star in the 1993 American Western film Tombstone, which was directed by George P. Cosmatos and written by Kevin Jarre (who was also the original director but was replaced early in production[4]). Sam Elliott, Bill Paxton, Powers Boothe, Michael Biehn, and Dana Delany also appear in supporting roles, and Robert Mitchum provides the narration.

The Gunfight at the OK Corral and the Earp Vendetta Ride are two fictionalized historical incidents that occurred in Southeast Arizona in the 1880s. It features several Western outlaws and lawmen, including Wyatt Earp, Doc Holliday, Johnny Ringo, and William Brocius. On December 25, 1993, Hollywood Pictures released Tombstone in broad theaters across the country, bringing in $73.2 million globally. The movie did well financially, and it currently holds the 16th spot among Western films in terms of box office take since 1979.

A similar-themed movie with much less commercial success, Wyatt Earp, was released six months later.[5] The acting, directing, and story received high marks from the critics, who generally gave the film excellent reviews. Val Kilmer garnered numerous honors and nominations for his unforgettable portrayal of the hard-partying Doc Holliday; nevertheless, he did not receive an Oscar nomination. Since it was first released, the movie has gained cult status.

“Tombstone” had to compete with Kevin Costner’s “Wyatt Earp,” which debuted six months after “Tombstone” in theaters. Despite having a larger budget ($63 million), “Wyatt Earp” only made $25 million at the box office, failing to find either critical or commercial success. “Now we know what they meant by cowpoke,” Rita Kempley said in her review of the 191-minute movie.
