The first UK (Internaional) poster for Jon Favreau’s COWBOYS& ALIENS has landed on the internet thanks to Universal Pictures via Yahoo UK. Especially when its a movie thats character driven the posters maybe fantastic pieces of work but they do suffer for the same generic things (different characters standing in front of some photoshoped background with the same slogan), so it’s a little refreshing that for this movie our movies 3 main charcaters are now standing in front of one of the invading alien ships! The background does look fantastic but does our heros know one of the nasty aliens there shooting at is sneeking up behind them probably to zap them to smithereens? Silent Alien ship… nice!
COWBOYS & ALIENS stars Harrison Ford, Olivia Wilde, Sam Rockwell, Adam Beach, Paul Dano, Noah Ringer, Ana de la Reguera, Clancy Brown. The movie is due out in UK &Ireland on August 19th (USA July 29th).
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.
