My Dad was always the big Western fan myself I never really liked it though things started to change slightly with the recent True Grit remake, I was always the sci-fi fan but now we have COWBOYS & ALIENS coming combining both genres somethings may just change! Universal Pictures have released online a brand new third trailer for Jon Favreau’s mashed up sci-fi western and in this new trailer there is loads of more new footage especially tiny glimpses of where Daniel Craig’s character may have been probed in a flashback which dumps him in the desert where the previous trailers kicked off, we also get a glimpse of the hand of one of the alien attackers as well as its ship! But who is Daniel Craig’s character? Its something we’ll find out on August 19th (USA July 29th) when COWBOYS & ALIENS comes to UK and Ireland. 2011 is certainly the year of the fun movies and comic book ones so are you looking forward too the movie? leave your thoughts below!

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.
