Yet another trailer for Jon Favreau’s Cowboys & Aliens movie has hit the Intardwebz, featuring more goodness than before.
There’s a new trailer for Cowboys & Aliens available for you to peer at with a keen eye.
When this movie was first announced, I had very little interest in seeing it, but now, a couple of trailers later, I’m getting psyched to see it when it arrives July 29, 2011.
A new trailer for the Jon Favreau Cowboys & Aliens adaptation has arrived.
I can not wait to see this.
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.
Cowboys and Aliens arrives in July.
It doesn’t matter if you are a fan of Platinum Studios or not… the poster looks F’ing cool!
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.”
I’m sure someone is worked up over this…
With the casting of Cowboys and Aliens wrapping up and shooting about to get underway, the first image emerges from director Jon Favreau. It’s not much, a silhouette of “someone” dressed up in cowboy duds. The camera test at least lets us know the Platinum Studios adaptation is really happening, and not a bunch of hype.
Looks pretty good to me.Â Watch all the way to the end to see a kick-ass costume change.
Can’t wait to see this on release day.
I was too stunned by the announcement last week of the casting of Stretch Armstrong and forgot to post news that the Battleship movie has been bumped up to May 25, 2012 from the originally scheduled July 29th date.Â Now, word from Universal has Jon Favreau’s Cowboys & Aliens filling the spot.Â The only other movie currently scheduled for that date is the 3D Smurfs movie that could be a real hit overseas.
The Los Angeles Times (yes, it is still around) has news that isn’t good for the Platinum Studios Cowboys and. Aliens movie.Â Robert Downey Jr. won’t be putting on a cowboy hat and fighting it out with visitors from beyond.Â Instead, speculators believe Downey is gearing up for a new Sherlock Holmes film.Â While Jon Favreau appears to still be on board, for now the Iron Man team of director/actor won’t be using their six shooters to stop and alien invasion.
While a sequel to Sherlock Holmes would be welcome, with the coming release of Iron Man 2, I can’t help but wonder if Downey isn’t saving himself for a third Iron Man film, or better yet, the Avengers flick.Â If Sherlock Holmes 2: Gaslight Boogaloo is greenlit, it would go into production in June.
While the second installment of the Iron Man series is in post production, word out of H’wood is that Robert Downey Jr. and Jon Favreau are set to team again in another movie.Â This isn’t news about a third Iron Man (although I wouldn’t write that one off), but rather Platinum Studios Cowboys and Aliens movie adaptation.Â Downey has been signed to star in the movie for a while, but now with Favreau on board as director, expect this movie to start moving through the Hollywood Machine pretty quickly.
The sci-fi Western explores what would happen if the traditional Old West enemies — cowboys and Native Americans — found the prairie attacked by aliens in mid-1800s Arizona.
And even though there is a pretty bad taste in everyone’s mouths about Platinum Studios (go check the archives) the company has been able to bring some pretty big names on board the project, including Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, who wrote the relaunched Star Trek franchise movie, and that Transformers movie as well.
