Universal Picture is going to premiere the brand new full-length trailer for Jon Favreau’s Cowboys & Aliens on Thursday, April 14th during... American Idol? Really? Is this the films target market? I wouldn’t think so, since this it's the same audience that is laughing at the trailer in the movie theater.
I don’t watch American Idol, and I’ll probably just wait until the trailer pops up online before I watch it, because I will not subject myself to the torture of American Idol just to watch the Cowboys & Aliens trailer, even if it is one of my most anticipated films of the year.
The film has an awesome cast of actors that includes Daniel Craig, Harrison Ford, Olivia Wilde, Sam Rockwell, Adam Beach, Paul Dano, Noah Ringer, Keith Carradine, Clancy Brown, Ana de la Reguera and Abigail Spencer.
The sci-fi action thriller is set to come out on July 29th 2011, and I can't wait! Will you be watching American Idol to see the new trailer?
Here's the Film's Synopsis:
1873. Arizona Territory. A stranger with no memory of his past stumbles into the hard desert town of Absolution. The only hint to his history is a mysterious shackle that encircles one wrist. What he discovers is that the people of Absolution don't welcome strangers, and nobody makes a move on its streets unless ordered to do so by the iron-fisted Colonel Dolarhyde. It's a town that lives in fear.
But Absolution is about to experience fear it can scarcely comprehend as the desolate city is attacked by marauders from the sky. Screaming down with breathtaking velocity and blinding lights to abduct the helpless one by one, these monsters challenge everything the residents have ever known.
Now, the stranger they rejected is their only hope for salvation. As this gunslinger slowly starts to remember who he is and where heÂ¿s been, he realizes he holds a secret that could give the town a fighting chance against the alien force. With the help of the elusive traveler Ella, he pulls together a posse comprised of former opponents - townsfolk, Dolarhyde and his boys, outlaws and Apache warriors - all in danger of annihilation. United against a common enemy, they will prepare for an epic showdown for survival.
