Cowboys and Aliens - film trailer
Jon Favreau directs Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford in a film that crosses the classic Western with the alien-invasion movie in a blazingly original way – Cowboys & Aliens.
A stranger (Craig) with no memory of his past stumbles into the hard desert town of Absolution in Arizona in 1873. 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 all in danger of annihilation.
