New Poster and Trailer for Cowboys and Aliens!


The first poster for Cowboys and Aliens has been released and I gotta say...WOW! I was just reading a snippet of interview with Harrison Ford (where he quickly mentioned this movie) and he was saying that the film starts off very much a strong Western, then suddenly has a strange new element added too it, and then goes back to being a very strong Western again, except with this new element in the mix (the very definition of "Weird West" if you ask me). This poster feels very much like that. You have the dynamic cowboy pose, a gorgeous desert landscape, and a wristband made from alien technology. The poster says it all, and it looks great!.......but lets just hope the film is just a dynamic. This film is one of the strongest hopes for the Weird Western genre to come along since Wild Wild West (which, coincidentally, there is also some new news about that I'll report on later this week)

Its possible too that, with the release of the first poster, there might be a teaser trailer coming very soon. Ill keep you guys posted on the details!

Also, if you click on the above picture, you can check out the details in a larger format!

EDIT: So, quite unexpectedly (sort of), the new teaser trailer for the film was released today. Wow! It starts off with a bang and gets better throughout. Everyone looks great! AND We get our first look at Harrison Ford as Woodrow Dolerhyde (and Keith Carradine is in this?! Awesome!). I think the trailer will make a big splash, it looks great.

They've opened up the official movie site and there are pages to Twitter sites, Facebook, and Blogs....basically anywhere that people are talking about the movie and everyone seems to love it. Also there are pages with new images, videos and downloadable stuff. Keep it bookmarked, I'm pretty sure they will be updating quite frequently until the film is released next July.

Until then check out the trailer!

The poster has me excited once more. I think Favre will do a decent job with it at the least. HOPEFULLY he'll handle it like he did Iron Man and it'll blow everyone away.

If the poster doesn't, the new teaser will, It did me. I was afraid that it would be another Jonah Hex where all the promotional material look good but the movie was silly. Fortunately, that isn't the case! :D

The trailer was brilliant! I love the way it built up, starting as a standard western...but not. I'm so excited! And at least Olivia Wilde can do more than just be eye candy.

I'm not sure that Harrison Ford won't be chewing scenery, but I'm still excited for this.

I got a kick out of reading the Twits... Tweets... whatever... on the official site. The downside of auto-feeding social media is when every single one on the frontpage is bashing the film ^_^

Looks pretty cool. Solid cast always helps.

Before I watched the trailer, I feared this would be an Animated 3D venture with slapstick comedy up the wazoo. But, after watching the trailer, I was floored. It starts out as a hardboiled western with a MIB style storyline. I'm excited to see how it all plays out. I also like the fact that is has some big star power attached. Kudos Jon F.
