On a completely superficial level, this movie makes me think of Firefly and Serenity, which did an amazing job with the sci-fi western genre.
Universal Pictures has released an extended sneak peek of the upcoming movie, Cowboys & Aliens, out in theaters on July 29, 2011. The film has strong leads and this extended trailer is definitely eye-catching. It all comes down to how well director Jon Favreau executes this move and sticks his landing.
It won’t be another Firefly, but here’s hoping it’s a worthy addition to this nerdtastic genre!
