Last night The Oscars happened. Some people watched, a lot of other people didn’t. Hey, The Walking Dead was on, do you expect me to wait around for the 11:00pm replay? Eff that. If you, like I, missed out on Academy Awards we recapped the good bits over here.
But something even more important happened last nigh. Jimmy Kimmel debuted the trailer for his secret movie project, and it’s a trailer for the greatest movie ever (that will never be made). Why? Once you watch it you’ll think of thousands of obvious reasons, but I think most likely it is simply too awesomely, amazingly incredible to exist.
It’s a movie about everything starring basically everyone, Movie: The Movie.
Give me a film like that and I’ll not only go to a theatre and pay to watch it, but I’ll watch every, useless award show it’s featured on.
For everyone out there who has always wanted to see a showdown between John Wayne and a Predator, Gary Cooper kicking alien ass on the fourth of July, or even Howdy Doody smacking E.T. around, your movie has come. Cowboys & Aliens is here to fill that hole in our nerdy soul.
In this short behind-the-scenes featurette the cast and crew, including Jon Favreau, Ron Howard, Olivia Wilde, Daniel Craig, Clancey Brown, Paul Dano and Harrison Ford, discuss what a beautiful awesome thing this crazy mash-up of genre movie is. For years kids have been creating such incredible battles in they backyards and bedrooms and now we can experience one on the big screen with a great director, awesome cast and top notch special effects. Who else is super excited about this summer movie?
In what might be the best blend since Mr. Reese’s was like, “Aw snap, this peanut butter and chocolate confection is bitchin’!”; Cowboys & Aliens looks like the perfect smashing of genres. Bringing all the intense and high-octane adventure of an alien invasion together with the heart and soul of struggling to survive the old west.
Watch the featurette below and let us know how amped you are for a Cowboys & Aliens‘ smackdown on July 29th?
