Due for release August 19th is Jon Favreau’s Cowboys and Aliens. Plenty has already been said on this site about this superb looking sci-fi western, but I just had to share this brand new poster with you. Heavily featuring the two biggest stars, Harrison Ford and Daniel Craig, the poster is nicely polished and well presented and has a real quality about it.
Its not long to wait for this movie now, and along with Super 8 and Apollo 18 just around the corner, this is turning out to be a great year for sci-fi. I have included the already posted trailer for you to enjoy, and the synopsis follows:
The Old West.. where a lone cowboy leads an uprising against a terror from beyond our world. 1873. Arizona Territory. A stranger 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…
