COWBOYS & ALIENS is a movie I really want to get excited about and see in motion. It comes from Director John Favreau (IRON MAN, ELF) who has recently been placed on Hollywood’s hot list of directors due to his work with Marvel on the Iron Man movies. The movie stars Daniel Craig (CASINO ROYALE, LARA CROFT: TOMB RAIDER) as a lone cowboy who lost his memory and Harrison Ford (STAR WARS, HOLLYWOOD HOMICIDE) as a disgruntled colonel who does not take kindly to strangers. The idea of a movie where Cowboys and Indians are fighting and then must put their differences aside to ward of a alien threat sounds fantastic to me. Blending the old west style with alien technology should prove pretty awesome on screen and I am thirsting for a trailer for this bad boy since I missed the footage at Comicon San Diego this year. Thanks to Yahoo Movies for the picture below.
