If you didn’t go see Cowboys and Aliens in the movie theaters – and considering The Smurfs did better than C&A, there’s a good chance you didn’t see the movie in theaters – Universal Pictures has announced the movie arrives on Blu-ray and DVD in December.
Though the first half of the latest Cowboys & Aliens trailer is content we’ve already seen before, the last half kicks it up a notch, and we see plenty more alien ships attacking the settlers of the West.
Cowboys and aliens. What more do you want in a movie? Okay, how about Harrison Ford and Daniel Craig being directed by Jon Favreau?
1875. New Mexico 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.
Here’s the latest poster for the upcoming Jon Favreau adaptation of Cowboys and Aliens.
Daniel Craig looks pretty awesome in this poster, and it is really clear in how the image was composited that the focus is on the two pieces of technology (gun and alien device), and not so much on the characters. It’s a perfect way to get the concept across without asking the viewer to dwell on the fact that it’s Craig standing there in a classic hero pose.
If you are into Olivia Wilde, and your Google Image Search for naked images of the actress are leaving you frustrated, then you’ll want to see Jon Favreau’s Cowboys and Aliens, where the star strips down.
“We just finished shooting Olivia Wilde naked in front of a bonfire in front of 500 Apache warriors,” Adam Beach said. “That was beautiful. You won’t get to see what I saw, but you’ll get a glimpse.”
Asked about the nude scene, Wilde laughed. “Did Adam Beach talk to you? Adam Beach is the best. Last night, we did a scene where I’m naked in front of a group of couple hundred Apache. Pretty amazing, pretty interesting.”
