Cowboys and Aliens trailer beams down from above

Nov. 17, 2010by: Paul Tassi

Big week for trailers so far with GREEN LANTERN dropping yesterday (I don't care what you say, that CGI suit looks awful), the awesome trailer for YOUR HIGHNESS appearing shortly after and now Jon Favreau's next non-IRON MAN project, COWBOYS & ALIENS with its debut spot today.

Daniel Craig, Harrison Ford and Olivia Wilde star as citizens of the Old West who encounters some "sky demons" beyond their comprehension. Lots of battling ensues, and fortunately Craig finds himself strapped with the only weapon that can take out the invaders.

It looks pretty cool I have to say, and my biggest complaint is that Daniel Craig's cowboy hat is weird. Check it out below or see it in HD at Yahoo!

Bonus: A bunch of new stills have hit from the film too. Check a few out below and click through for the rest.

Extra Tidbit: Is this or the "Cowboys vs. Ninjas" movie THE WARRIOR'S WAY the cooler ridiculous concept. Or "Vikings vs. Aliens" in OUTLANDER?

Holy shit. This trailer (and most likely the movie) does not deserve such an awful title. Seriously...we can do better. Call it fucking "Showdown" or something!

I'm sorry

I know I'm going to come back and have a -12 rating, but this just looks goofy. To be totally fair, I'm not sure how they would pull this off. If it was jokey, it would be bad too. But this just takes itself way too seriously. Especially with it's "Snakes on a Plane" style of literal titles. I hope this movie brings joy to many of you, but the trailer just made me blush.

Awesome trailer

I love the tone and feel, the set design is awesome. HBO should buy the set when it's finished, and make some adjustments and finally give us a Deadwood movie/finale.

Cool! Just inspired me to see it!

I thought the premise sounded kinda stupid, but the trailer has changed that. I'll definitely check this out.

It would be hard not to laugh at that title shot if the names involved weren't. Craig and Ford look badass though and frankly I'll take a so-so trailer over one that gives away the whole thing. Green Lantern needs to work harder to sell me, this one I'm counting on.

Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford! I'm there!

This looks really BA! I'm surprised no one has tried to do this before. It's cool to see Harrison Ford in a western. He seems tailor made for them, just like Clint Eastwood. Did I see Sam Rockwell's name in the credits? This movie is definitely on my radar!

Title

In my mind I thought the film was called "Cowboys Vs. Aliens." A quick internet search showed me I'm not the only one who thought that. Cowboys & Aliens is still a great title. Rolls off the tongue.

This is the kind of role Harrison Ford needs more of. Daniel Craig is the kind of actor I always look forward to seeing. Olivia Wilde is hot, but not too trampy looking, which is nice for a change.

Love the eery tone of the teaser. If anything, as a western fan, it's the aliens that feel off. But not really, because what we see of them looks as good as anything else there. It's just out-of-place, which, of course, is the point.

Wow. As a western, it looks fantastic. As an Alien invasion movie, it looks entertaining as hell. I can't wait!

Also, anyone who compares this to the Wild Wild West & Jonah Hex films are just trying too hard to be a troll. It's just such a ridiculous statement to make.

That trailer just moved C&A up to my "Most Anticipated Film of 2011".

What an amazing week for trailers; Battle for L.A., Your Highness, Green Lantern, and now this!

2011 is shaping up to be quite an interesting year; I'm definitely going to have to take on a second job to make up for all of the money I'm going to be shelling out on movie tickets.

Jon Favreau. Daniel Craig. Harrison Ford. It looks incredible. Steven Spielberg and Ron Howard are producing it. It's based off of great source material about an intriguing concept. They're taking it seriously. It doesn't have Megan Fox in it.

Need I go on?

Doesn't seem like they're following the comic too closely which is a good thing because the original comic wasn't exactly great. I agree with Tassi though. That hat is weird. I do have to say this though, when you're movie is titled Cowboys and Aliens, you should probably have at least a little bit of comedy. As much as I like Craig and it's great seeing him back in a blockbuster, I agree with people below saying RDJ would have been a better choice. His dry wit and occasional comic relief

His dry wit and occasional comic relief worked wonders in Sherlock and it would have worked here. Still looks good though and I'll definitely be there first day but with slightly lower expectations.
