Cowboys & Aliens (2011) – Trailer

The first trailer for Jon Favreau’s new film Cowboys & Aliens—which I am in the habit of calling Cowboys & Indians, though I assure you it is anything but—was released just yesterday. Based on a graphic novel of the same name, Cowboys & Aliens sees Daniel Craig, Harrison Ford, Olivia Wilde, Sam Rockwell, and Paul Dano in a western against, well, aliens. The trailer, after the jump, displays what looks to be a near campy film with riotous though, limited, fun.

I must admit I do enjoy Craig, Ford, Rockwell, Dano and even Wilde (House), so perhaps it is the concept I am not yet sold on. That being said I do believe the film does have a few things going for it. Robert Downey Jr. was cast to play the lead of Jake Lonergan, a lone cowboy of sorts, but do to scheduling conflicts Daniel Craig soon replaced him for what is no doubt of the better. RDJ is a tremendous actor, one whom I see among the best, but this role will certainly fair better with Craig as its lead. Another point of notoriety is that Stephen Spielberg is attached to the film as one of its producers.
