That cool Cowboys and Aliens pic, Actor revealed!

So I gotta say, I like this picture a lot. Like all good cowboy pictures should, it has great silhouette. The picture was released last week by Jon Favreau on his Twitter. Its a picture of one of the actors in the movie and at the time, Favreau was very hush hush as to the actors identity (not wanting to reveal such big news on Twitter). Personally I thought it was Sam Rockwell, since it looks a little thin and not beefy (ie Manly) enough to be Harrison Ford. Well it turns out that its Daniel Craig! It looks great....I just hope his costume design gets more interesting as they progress.

Also, speaking of Harrison Ford, I still can't believe how cool it is that hes in this. From an official synopsis that released last week, it sounds like he is going to be, if not a villain, at least an antagonist. An antagonist who has to team up with Daniel Craig and Co to fight a common long as he has a substantial part and doesn't die in the first five minutes I'm on board!

Who am I fooling, I'm on-board anyway...I cant wait to see what they do, its starting to look better all the time!

Heres the Official Synopsis that was released last week:

1873. Arizona Territory. A stranger (Craig) 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 (Ford). 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 (Olivia Wilde), 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.

Yowza it sounds like fun! :Fingers crossed:

I'm still not sure how I feel about this movie. I haven't read the source material but even still, it seems like no one knows how to handle weird westerns in film format. Except Clint Eastwood but that was probably cause of the low levels of weird. Just enough to register.

its true, there have been a lot of garbage but have you seen the Burrowers? Its REALLY good and probably one of the best Weird Western films out there right now.
