The theatrical trailer for Jon Favreau’s Cowboys & Aliens is now available online, and boy is it a doozy. I really love how the film has a straight western vibe to it, which strangely doesn’t feel contradictory to the sci-fi elements. We get much more of a sense of the plot through this new trailer, and quite a bit more of Olivia Wilde’s character. The action looks fantastic, and I’m loving the interaction of Ford, Craig and Rockwell’s characters. This marketing campaign keeps knocking it out of the park. Starring Daniel Craig, Harrison Ford, Olivia Wilde, Sam Rockwell, and Paul Dano, Cowboys & Aliens hits theaters on July 29th.

Hit the jump to check the trailer out for yourself.

Here’s the trailer [from Apple]:

Here’s the lengthy official synopsis for Cowboys & Aliens:

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. 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, 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.
