First poster for Cowboys and aliens blends past and future tech

Nov. 15, 2010by: Paul Tassi

We've only been subjected to horrible bootlegs so far, but now we have our first ACTUAL poster for Jon Favreau's COWBOYS AND ALIENS.

It features a cowboy with his face in shadow, though presumably it's lead Daniel Craig, and he's clutching a rifle and has some sort of alien tech strapped to his arm. Not much else to go on, but if you really want to learn some plot details feel free to investigate the comic source material.

In addition to Craig, Olivia Wilde and Harrison Ford are also starring, both of whom get me excited for very different reasons, and I'm sure in the tradition of a million IRON MAN character posters, each will get their own one sheets eventually as well.

Not a bad Advanced poster,though I would have used a more appropriate font for each word- "Cowboys" and "Aliens" something more fitting =Old West and futuristic looking lettering.

anyone else thinking...

Now i'm not knocking Danny Craig...I think the guy is a complete Bad-Ass. (i.e. Layer Cake, OO7)

But anyone else thinking "Captain Tightpants" in the poster above could have went to Nathan Fillion also?

as if you were expecting anything else: LONG LIVE SERENITY!

This is gonna be a great movie, because is based in such a crazy original idea that if it isn't a success, then next year's box office can kiss my ass

Nothing special, but still cool.

Kind of generic, but works as a teaser. This seems like a movie that deserves a hand drawn "Indiana Jones" / Drew Struzan style poster. That'd be sweet. Definitely looking forward to this though.

Cool poster, but I'm not sure I needed to see that much Daniel Craig ass crack.

The poster is pretty badass, too bad this movie is probably going to get killed at the box-office.

The poster itself is very cool. But there's something about the title design I don't like; it's like you have the crazy juxtaposition of two VERY different genres, and the title design just completely takes away from that. Overall, pretty BA, though.

Cool poster. Movie is going to own and should be a fun ride. The concept is awesome and can't wait to see the cast interact with one another with this premise.

Hopefully, Sam Rockwell gets a poster since he didn't get a chance to be on a single one when Iron Man 2 came out.

Iím very excited for this movie, because the concept is awesome. But Iím even more excited to see Harrison Ford in a bad ass role again, and not in some lame romantic comedy or boring drama. Kudos to Favreau and team for getting Ford to sign on to this.

Indiana Jones and the Curse of the A-List Career

Here's hoping that, 5-10 years down the line, Harrison Ford doesn't look back & call Cowboys & Aliens some piece of **** sci-fi movie that "ruined his life".

like you said the megan fox thing, and this doesnt show any of his face like the jonah hex did, and here there is a piece of alien technology on his wrist, and the color scheme is different, and here he holds a rifle where hex held a revolver
