The first trailer we saw for Cowboys & Aliens, the new comic book movie from Iron Man director Jon Favreau, was pretty impressive and had most buzzing with excitement for the flick.
That was just a taste. Universal Pictures has now released the new theatrical trailer for the movie and…wow. There’s a lot of big movies coming out this summer, but you would not be out of line to say that this looks like one of the most fun and exciting titles on the way.
The movie stars Daniel Craig, Harrison Ford, Olivia Wilde, Sam Rockwell, Clancy Brown, and Paul Dano, and it’s written by Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, and Damon Lindelof.
You can read a detailed synopsis and check out the trailer below right now. Cowboys & Aliens will hit theaters on July 29, 2011.
Just the premise of the movie — not to mention its insanely exciting collection of cast, writers, director, and producers — was enough to have most people buzzing with anticipation. Now, with our first real look at the movie here waiting for you (do you hear it? It’s calling your name!), we can really get our child-like giddiness revved up to maximum power.
The movie stars Daniel Craig, Harrison Ford, Olivia Wilde, Sam Rockwell, Adam Beach, and Paul Dano, and is written by Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, and Damon Lindelof.

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.

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.
