Sweet (Teaser) Trailer…’Cowboys & Aliens’

Oh man I don’t know how much more trailer awesomeness I can take in one week. Who am I kidding this is AWESOME!! On Monday we had the Cowboys & Aliens teaser poster and now we have the teaser trailer. What a week film fans, what a week! Check out Daniel Craig in the awesome trailer from Yahoo! Movies below:

In Silver City, Arizona, Apache Indians and Western settlers must lay their differences aside when an alien spaceship crash lands in their city.

Wow, that was just what a trailer should be; elusive and mysterious. This adaptation, of a graphic novel of the same name, is directed by Jon Favreau (Iron Man). Daniel Craig plays Jake Lonergan, a man with no memory who, as you saw in the trailer, begins to take up with the town folk against the “Aliens”. Along for the ride (horse humor, get it?) are Olivia Wilde (hotness), Sam Rockwell and Harrison Ford. Consider me stoked and it looks like a concept just crazy enough to work, although it does have the benefit of being backed by Ron Howard, Brian Grazer and Sir Steven Spielberg himself and that can’t hurt the picture now can it?

Cowboys & Aliens will be riding into theaters next year on July 29th, 2011. What do you all think? Will you join the posse?

  1. Wow, there are sooo many trailers this week, Marc, that’s why I’m not doing one this week as everyone else has been posting the latest ones. I’m still trying to wrap my head around Daniel Craig as a cowboy 🙂 It’s Harrison Ford casting that intrigues me though, I might see this once it’s on Netflix.

    • Yeah Ruth I was going to sit back and let trailer-mania subside before I posted something. But there were just so many awesome ones I wanted to post them all:P

      I’m looking forward to this though. I’m sold on the whole cast and really excited to see what Rockwell will do here. I also want to see if Favreau will have another hit on his hands outside the Iron Man universe.

    This trailer looks pretty good. It has a slight Wild Wild West feel which is never a good thing but I think this does a great job of building anticipation for the movie. The CGI looks good unlike The Green Lantern one which came in the morning.

    • I agree the Green Lantern CG needs a few more hours in the render farm (and I’m really puzzled why they would do the entire suite CG) but I still liked it.

      But now Cowboys and Aliens looks great, I’ll agree with you there. Although I thought the bracelet was a little to Iron Man…but then again it is Favreau directing this.

    • “It has a slight Wild Wild West feel which is never a good thing”

      It certainly does…we’ll have to keep an eye out for giant mechanical spiders in upcoming trailers.

      • Agreed Klaus. This could get bad and laughable pretty damn fast and I hope the inferred ominous tone isn’t as overbearing (and thus boring) as War of the Worlds.

        Still it’s Favreau Ford and Craig. Expect “awesome” but still be wary of “Kingdom of the Crystal Skull”:P
