Yee-Haw. New Batch of Cowboys and Aliens Images

I’m not really feeling Jon Favreau’s “Cowboys and Aliens”, which is set to open in two weeks on July 29th. It’s got everything you could want in a summer movie — a proven director, a great cast, an intriguing concept … and yet, and yet … I don’t know, if it ends up being really good, I’ll be really surprised. Right now, I’m just expecting something entertainment, but not mind-blowing. I hope Favreau proves me wrong. Until then, the studio has released a new batch of images from the sci-fi/Western. Please to enjoy.

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.

Starring Sam Rockwell, Olivia Wilde, Harrison Ford, Daniel Craig, Noah Ringer, Clancy Brown, Paul Dano, Keith Carradine and directed by Jon Favreau.
