Even though alot of the movie/tv awards television programmes the winners are a little predictable one great thing about the American ones (not the British sadly) is they have a habit of showing of some new trailers or tv spots. The recently aired Spike TV Awards previewed a new trailer for Jon Favreau’s COWBOYS & ALIENS and at first glance there may not look much on new footage but what new footage there is we can agree it looks mighty tasty! The new trailer gives us a little glimpse of the Alien’s ship as well as a big hello to Paul Dano in his first appearance in the movies preview footage.
Still 2 months to go before this movie appears in UK &Ireland opening on August 19th (July 29th USA), here’s hoping the film studio doesn’t take the same marketing route as in recent Comic Book movies by revealing virtually everything!
COWBOYS & ALIENS stars Harrison Ford, Olivia Wilde, Sam Rockwell, Adam Beach, Paul Dano, Noah Ringer, Ana de la Reguera, Clancy Brown.
1873. Arizona Territory. A stranger (Craig) 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 (Ford). 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 he’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 (Olivia Wilde), 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.
