Behold a new Featurette for COWBOYS & ALIENS directed by Iron Man director Jon Favreau and in this short but sweet featurette we have Favreau along with producers Ron Howard, Steven Spielberg as well as writers Robert Orci & Alex Kurtzman (Star Trek) talk about the idea behind the film. The comic book the movie is based on came out during an era in mid-late 1990’s when comic book writing quality was very poor and made it extremely hard for good ideas to develop but its the graphic novel version of 2006 that caught the film studio’s eye. COWBOYS AND ALIENS so far looks its going to be one hell of a movie which could prove with the right team behind it you can make a poor selling comic and make it potentially into a successful blockbuster movie.
Check out the new poster from the movie as well and when can we see this? August 19th for all us here in UK & Ireland but if your American you can catch the movie a little earlier on July 29th. 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.
