Cowboys & Aliens new trailer
This new trailer for Cowboys & Aliens looks like the one I saw before Super 8 in Canada just last week. It delivers more of the story, more of the action, and more of the stars, but most of all it does a damn good job of making a bizarre idea seem like great fun.
My wife came out after the film and was somewhat taken aback by the trailer, definitely very confused about what the idea, and I think that's going to be a common problem the film will face. After all we're not all comic book fans.
That crowd do have other things to draw them in though, Daniel Craig, Harrison Ford, Olivia Wilde, Sam Rockwell, Clancy Brown, Walton Goggins and more recognisable names, not to mention the fact that it's written by Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman (and a few more names on the way), and directed by Jon Favreau. Now if you think the idea sounds daft there's bound to be something in there to grab your attention, especially if the trailers haven't yet.
So the new trailer delivers more of everything and it continues to make Cowboys & Aliens look like a great action adventure film, no matter how daft it sounds.
Here's the trailer.
