Cowboys and Aliens Poster Lacks Aliens, But Shows Badass Cowboy

Universal Pictures has unveiled the teaser poster for Cowboys and Aliens, a film that’s going to be directed by Iron Man director, Jon Favreau. The movie is coming out on July 29, 2011, and will star Daniel Craig, Harrison Ford, Olivia Wilde, Sam Rockwell, Adam Beach, Paul Dano and Noah Ringer.

The story of Cowboys and Aliens follows a stranger (Daniel Craig) in 1873 in Arizona Territory. Using the plot device of a man with no memory, the stranger enters a town called Absolution, run by Colonel Dolarhyde (Harrison Ford). The town lives in constant fear, but they’ll soon realize that their fear will not prepare them for… Aliens.

Now only one man can save the townsfolk, and it’s the stranger. Well, how can he save the town from aliens? You see, as his memory starts to come back, he finds out that he can help give the town a fighting chance. With the help from Ella (Olivia Wilde), the stranger teams up with his former rivals to unite against a common enemy.

Can you believe the last cowboy movie we had was Brokeback Mountain? Nothing against that movie, but it’s time we see Cowboys as they’re meant to be, kicking alien ass!

Stay tuned on Wednesday for the teaser trailer!
