If you’re one of those kids who enjoy your twittering and what such, and you also happen to think movies are rad cool, then following big-time director Jon Favreau is definitely a must. Hell, it’s a lot more entertaining and informative than, say, following Ashton-friggin’-Kutcher or 16-year old girl prattling on about her nails. Though admittedly, there are some pros to the latter, but let’s not get into that now, the cops may be reading this.
For example, here’s Jon Favreau tweeting a pic from the set of “Cowboys and Aliens”. The caption calls the image below a “camera test”. And yes, it certainly looks very camera testy.
“Cowboys and Aliens”, based on a comic book of the same name, is set in the American Wild West and finds a small town called Absolution under the iron heel of Harrison Ford, here playing a meanie. Our hero is Daniel Craig, playing a stranger with amnesia, who shows up in town just in time to romance Olivia Wilde when aliens from outer space attack. Yes, aliens from outer space. The cowboys must team up with the local Indian population to fight back, and much fun is had by all.
Well, except for the ones that get vaporized, of course. Sucks to be them.
Also co-starring Sam Rockwell, Paul Dano, Keith Carradine, Clancy Brown and Noah Ringer.
