Director Jon Favreau has released the Cowboys & Aliens Super Bowl Spot a few hours before kickoff.  Featuring a lot of new footage, the spot does a great job selling the stars (Daniel Craig, Harrison Ford and Olivia Wilde) and the action.  While I was already sold on the concept and movie, I think this ad will excite all the people that have never heard of the film.

Featuring a script by Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci & Damon Lindelof, Cowboys & Aliens is one of the big films of summer 2011.  And with a release date a few days after Comic-Con (July 29, 2011), I think everyone attending nerdapalooza next summer is going to get the chance to see it.  But that’s just a guess. I have no inside info.  Hit the jump to watch the spot:

Blockbuster filmmaker Jon Favreau directs Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford in an event film for summer 2011 that crosses the classic Western with the alien-invasion movie in a blazingly original way: Cowboys & Aliens.  Joined by an arsenal of top moviemakers—Steven Spielberg, Ron Howard, Brian Grazer, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci—he brings an all-new action thriller that will take audiences into the Old West, where a lone cowboy leads an uprising against a terror from beyond our world.

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.

  • Kasia Nowakowski

    Heheh, good one :)
    I don’t think I will see this though as this is not my kind of movie, you know :)

  • Jeff T.

    “Wild Wild West” all over again…

    It’ll have a big opening, and then it’s going down big time.

  • Collin V.

    Jon Favreau made Iron Man very successful. I hope he can do it again with this. This looks so damn interesting…

    When the first C&A trailer played before a screening of Harry Potter 7 that I saw, the whole theater burst out into laughter when they saw the title. I’m not sure that bodes well for a movie that takes itself so seriously.

  • J. Jonah Jameson

    CGI looks fake, especially when Craig jumps on the ship. They have a lot of work to do effectswise. Now Battle LA, that I’ll see!

  • Lob Taylor

    Am psyched about this already. AM gonna be there on the line opening day….this hasn’t changed my mind

  • tzaylor

    yeah filmakers need to understand we can accept aliens attacking the wild west and even one dude getting advanced wrist tech. But what we don’t accept is a guy jumping from a horse and landing on a speeding spaceship, and holding on. Cause that’s just dumb.
