While we only got a quick look at COWBOYS & ALIENS when the teaser arrived last week, the general consensus seems to be that director Jon Favreau is nailing it with the tone of a straight western injected with sci-fi elements.

MTV coaxed the always personable Favreau out of the editing bay and got him to provide a brief commentary for what we saw in the clip, plus some discussion about the approach to the material and the addition of Harrison Ford.

Check out the commentary vid, and the full original teaser below.

Favreau is cool as shit. He knows how to make a quality, entertaining movie and he also keeps his finger on the pulse of the fanboy community, what with his Twitter and this video here. All-around awesome guy and I can't wait for this movie!

Favreau is a cool guy and it's pretty awesome that he sat down and talked about the trailer. I didn't even notice the wire in that scene. Good eyes for anyone that caught that.

Don't get me wrong ...

This is pretty damn cool, I am just still waiting for an IRON MAN commentary.

Gotta love Favs. And am extremely glad they went for a serious tone with the film. Cant wait.

I trust Favs because of his track record and he's a damn good director. Still, I wonder if the sheer awfulness of "Crystal Skull" gave any of them pause? Harrison Ford in another movie where aliens suddenly appear in a grounded reality strikes a little close to home for those that felt burned by Indy 4. I've been reading that the Harry Potter crowds laughed at this trailer. Not being a Harry Potter midnight kiddie, I don't see it but now am concerned.

Since when is Indiana Jones a grounded reality? Did you see them?

I think we are safe. I'm not sure "Aliens suddenly appear" considering they are in the title of the film.
