Hey gang! The first teaser trailer for Jon Favreau's Cowboys & Aliens has been released and it looks pretty damn incredible! I love that it has this real gritty western look to it. It feels like a western movie like Unforgiven, only there's aliens involved!
I'm a huge fan of both western and sci-fi films so this it a perfect mixture of Awesomeness! I'm definitely more excited about this then I am the Green Lantern. As much as I liked the Green Lantern trailer, This looks like it's going to be a much better film.
It looks like Favreau and his team of talent went out and made a really cool movie!
The film has a great cast of actors which 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. It was written by Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci and Damon Lindelof.
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.
The sci-fi action thriller is set to come out on July 29th 2011, and I can't wait! Check out the trailer below and tell us what you think!
