Cowboys and Aliens a film about well, Cowboys and aliens is being brought to us by Jon Favreau is an epic tale set in the wild west (think The Good, The Bad and The Ugly with an alien invasion thrown in). This movie seems pretty sweet and the cast is unbelievable; There’s everyone from Harrison Ford to Daniel Craig and Olivia Wilde. In addition to having an incredible action and comic book movie director like Favreau on board Ron Howard and Steven Spielberg are also in hte mix and producers. The plot details reveal,
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 trailer just came our way today and is compiled mainly of footage shown at Comic Con. Now while there isn’t a lot to the movie which follows closely to the comic, it just seems… fun! And with a Summer 2011 release date it should definitely be a great blockbuster to check out.
