JoBlo.com's Top 10 Trailers of 2010: Cowboys & Aliens
Welcome to the 10 Best Trailers of 2010. This is the 10th Annual List dating back to 2001 and my sixth year bringing it exclusively to JoBlo.com. If you visit the Trailers Page frequently, you should know my tastes quite well. Keep coming back for the rest of the year and we'll slowly be rolling out the Top 10 one by one. Sometimes great trailers make great movies and other times they make you see awful movies. Don't hesitate to strike back below if you think I must be completely nuts. (Also, keep in mind that some trailers that you've seen this year were on last year's list.)
This movie had been on my radar for quite some time. Being a Jon Favreau fan from the earliest days (even ZATHURA), I knew that the guy picked this project because there was value to be found. Once the cast was announced I knew that I was in for something special. Boy, did this teaser deliver. Way longer and more fleshed out than a typically teaser, COWBOYS & ALIENS gives plenty of character development and atmosphere without ruining the story. There are plenty of mysteries left to be revealed. The tone of this teaser is beyond perfect. Daniel Craig looks like hes ready to rip out someones spinal cord and Harrison Ford grumbles from underneath his cowboy hat like a man pissed at the world. A premise like this could go wrong so easily (i.e. JONAH HEX); and yet, here I am telling you that Favreau and crew have gotten this one spot on.
