New Cowboys & Aliens Trailer Hits Net

“We have one advantage; they underestimate you.”

Jon Favreau’s latest epic, Cowboys & Aliens, has a new ‘sneak peek’ trailer up on youtube. The Iron Man director has combined the writing talent behind 2009’s Star Trek (Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci) with a star studded cast including Olivia Wilde, Sam Rockwell and Harrison Ford.

Daniel Craig plays Jake Lonergan, a mysterious drifter who stumbles into the small desert town of Absolution. Lonergan has no recollection of the events which led to his arrival in the brutal town, save for a strange alien looking device attached to his wrist. Absolution doesn’t take kindly to strangers, and he is quickly thrown in jail by the town’s leader, the fearsome Colonel Dolarhyde (Harrson Ford). But when mysterious ships swoop in from the sky and begin picking off the defenceless, the man they initially rejected becomes their only hope for survival. Cowboys & Aliens opens on August 19.
