The Historically Accurate New Trailer For ‘Cowboys & Aliens’

Pirates vs. Ninjas is old news. Monsters got to take on Aliens, so now it’s Cowboys‘ turn. Next in line is Leprechaun Clowns. I think Leprechaun Clowns vs. Aliens is looking for a director right now, actually.

Above is the new trailer for Jon Favreau‘s Cowboys & Aliens, starring Daniel Craig, Olivia Wilde and Harrison Ford. I like this new trailer. It’s got thrills, chills, cowpokes, alien folks. It gives you just enough to understand the complex, gun-based relationship between cattle rustlers and space invaders.

Based on a graphic novel – because of course it was – by Scott Mitchell Rosenberg, the film takes place in 1873, in the desert town of Absolution. Those old west towns have the friendliest names. A criminal with no memory of his past (Craig) must team up with the town sheriff (Ford) to stop aliens from destroying everyone. Olivia Wilde plays a girl character. It has a couple producers you probably haven’t heard of, like Brian GrazerRon Howard and Steven Spielberg.

The shoot-out comes to theaters July 29, 2011.
