I can honestly say that I think I’ve only seen one thing for the upcoming summer blockbuster movie Cowboys & Aliens until now. This new trailer makes it two times. The first trailer that I saw for this made it look alright and now this second trailer makes it look pretty awesome. Let’s hope for Jon Favreau‘s sake that he knows what he is doing with the advertising on this film. Favreau has kept pretty quiet on the marketing front for this movie, which can only spell one thing. Doom. How can you expect to be a big summer blockbuster movie if nobody knows about it?
Cowboys & Aliens stars Daniel Craig, Harrison Ford, Olivia Wilde, Sam Rockwell and Paul Dano. It will be hitting theaters on July 29th, 2011 so make sure to check it out if you find yourself liking either of the trailers. Thanks to We Got This Covered you can check out the trailer and the synopsis below.
1873. Arizona Territory. A stranger with no memory of his past stumbles into the hard desert town of Absolution. The only hint to his history is a mysterious shackle that encircles one wrist. What he discovers is that the people of Absolution don’t welcome strangers, and nobody makes a move on its streets unless ordered to do so by the iron-fisted Colonel Dolarhyde. It’s a town that lives in fear.
But Absolution is about to experience fear it can scarcely comprehend as the desolate city is attacked by marauders from the sky. Screaming down with breathtaking velocity and blinding lights to abduct the helpless one by one, these monsters challenge everything the residents have ever known.
Now, the stranger they rejected is their only hope for salvation. As this gunslinger slowly starts to remember who he is and where he’s been, he realizes he holds a secret that could give the town a fighting chance against the alien force. With the help of the elusive traveler Ella, he pulls together a posse comprised of former opponents – townsfolk, Dolarhyde and his boys, outlaws and Apache warriors – all in danger of annihilation. United against a common enemy, they will prepare for an epic showdown for survival.
