Ain't much, but here's your very first look at Favreau's Cowboys and Aliens
Alright, so it's not a whole lot to look at per se, but it's something.
Jon Favreau tweeted this picture yesterday, and he says it's from early camera tests for the film, so presumably that’s not Daniel Craig under that hat. The film stars Craig, Olivia Wilde(!), Sam Rockwell(!!) and Harrison Ford(!!!).
As you can tell from my exclamation points, I’m pretty excited about it, as all of those actors fighting aliens while dressed as cowboys, under the direction of Jon Favreau sounds pretty damn awesome. The official plot synopsis is under the picture 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.
