Brand New ‘Cowboys And Aliens’ Trailer!

A brand spanking new trailer for Jon Favreau’s Cowboys And Aliens has been released revealing more of the story and it’s alien antagonists.  It’s safe to say ILM have once again done an incredible job with the effects which look photo real and wonderfully imaginative.

The film is set in 1873 Arizona and follows Jake Lonergan (Daniel Craig) who finds himself in the desert with no memory of his past and a strange shackle on his wrist. He enters the town of Absolution which lives in fear under the control of iron fisted Colonel Dolarhyde (Harrison Ford). Aliens arrive and all hell breaks loose as the people are abducted and the town destroyed. The shackle of Lonergan’s wrist acts as an Iron Man-esque flip up weapon and suddenly Lonergan is the hero the town needs. Lonergan, Dolarhyde and a traveller named Ella (Olivia Wilde) form a posse to fight the alien invaders.

The action shown in the trailer has certainly been ramped up as it should be with a film which stars James Bond and Indiana Jones. It promises a stunning blend of classic western and sci-fi. Writers Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman who have become reliable names in Hollywood due to their impressive list of writing credits that include Star Trek, Transformers, Mission: Impossible III and Tv’s Alias, have compared the script to Unforgiven if aliens had turned up. The film, executive produced by Steven Spielberg is based on a graphic novel of the same name written by Scott Mitchell Rosenburg which was published in 2006 after numerous attempts at adapting it for the screen fell through.

Here is the trailer in all it’s glory. Enjoy it and yes, you are allowed to punch the air with your fist with excitement!
