Spoiler Talk: Cowboys & Aliens

Daniel Craig in Cowboys & Aliens

“Pockets on Shrek, Rockets on deck
Tell me what’s next, alien sex
I’ma disrobe you, than I’mma probe you
See I abducted you, so I tell ya what to do
I tell ya what to do, what to do, what to do”

-Those Kanye West “rhymes” from ET

Despite the geektastic union of James Bond and Indiana Jones sharing the same 40 feet of screen for the very first time, Cowboys & Aliens remains, after a distractedly puzzling 2 hours, a study of ‘Oh, what could/should have been’. You leave as the credits roll not necessarily dissatisfied, but with the niggling feeling that, considering the pedigree of those involved in front of and behind the camera, this movie should be a lot better than it is.

In terms of Steven Spielberg-produced alien invasion flicks, C&A is leagues better than June’s 80’s nostalgia theme restaurant Super 8. It appears that 1880s evil aliens have a lot more going for it than 1980s weepy bitch aliens.

However, if the thought of seeing Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford together is just too enticing, then by all means go. Just make sure your expectations are roped nicely in check, for though the names Spielberg, producer Ron Howard, Lost’s Damon Lindelof contributing to the screenplay, and Iron Man director Jon Favreau may lead you to expect genre transcendence, you may just have to be satisfied by the very averageness of the production.

Time for some SPOILER TALK! Below are SPOILERS for Cowboys & Aliens. Free free to add your thoughts in the Comments section.

Movie Review: Cowboys & Aliens

BAADASSSSS!   |

Cowboys and AliensCowboys & Aliens
Directed by Jon Favreau
Starring Daniel Craig, Harrison Ford, Olivia Wilde, Sam Rockwell, Adam Beach, Clancy Brown
Release Date: July 29, 2011

The two genres of film I love the most are science-fiction and westerns. They both speak to my soul and provide fuel for my imagination. When I dream of fantastic adventures, it either involves me traveling through space to magnificent distant worlds or exploring the frontier of a new nation being forged right here on Earth. Combining the two genres into one glorious and entertaining package is like presenting me with the cinematic equivalent of a Reese’s peanut butter cup. It would definitely explain why I love Firefly and its big screen sequel Serenity so dearly. But I love it when a movie crossbreeds genres like that. Among my favorite directors of all time are John Carpenter and Walter Hill, two great filmmakers who made their careers playing around with the archetypes and stylistic flourishes of western storytelling in modern settings. Hill, unlike Carpenter, actually got to make a few honest-to-God westerns in his life. Both the science-fiction and western genres are inhabited with intriguing, larger-than-life characters populating worlds filled with mystery, chaos, and wonder, another great reason why the two distinct genres complement each other so well as long as neither side overwhelms the other over the course of the story. Jon Favreau, no stranger to making films with elements of the fantastic (Elf, Zathura, the Iron Man movies), understands this perfectly and it is that understanding that accounts for a huge part of the success of his latest feature, Cowboys & Aliens.

A brand new poster for Jon Favreau‘s upcoming graphic novel adaptation, Cowboys & Aliens, has been released online via Yahoo! Movies.

The poster is simple but exciting enough for those of us itching to see the movie. The poster also serves a double-purpose: to keep us excited for the movie, which will be released next summer on July 29, 2011, and to set up the countdown to the movie’s first trailer, which is just a couple of days away now!

The movie stars Daniel Craig, Harrison Ford, Olivia Wilde, Sam Rockwell, Adam Beach, and Paul Dano, and tells the story of an alien invasion in late 1800s Arizona, forcing rival cowboys and Indians to join forces and take on the intergalactic threat before it’s too late.

You can click on over to the other side right now to see the new poster, read the full synopsis, and also check out the countdown to the new trailer, which you’ll be able to see right here when the digits hit all zeroes (err…somewhere in that general area, anyway).

Cowboys & Aliens

The casting for Jon Favreau‘s comic book adaptation of Cowboys & Aliens has been nothing short of phenomenal so far, and they just keep adding to it.

According to Deadline, three new actors in Paul Dano, Clancy Brown, and Keith Carradine have been cast in the film. Dano is best known for his work in movies like Little Miss Sunshine and There Will Be Blood, and will be one of the many cowboys that will be battle alien invaders. Clancy Brown, known for his work as a prison guard in The Shawshank Redemption or a drill instructor in Starship Troopers, will be a cowboy as well. Carradine has appeared on the hit Showtime series Dexter and is no stranger to the western genre having appeared in plenty of movies of the genre and HBO’s Deadwood. He’ll be playing the town sheriff.

Chase your own aliens over to the other side to read a brand new official synopsis, which is much longer and much more detailed than what we’ve known about the film so far!
