Universal have released the second full trailer for Jon Favreau’s Cowboys & Aliens. It’s a lot like the previous trailer, just with more plot details, more of Olivia Wilde, and more footage of the aliens attacking (we don’t actually see the aliens, that’ll probably be something they save for the movie itself).
You can watch the trailer below: (Is that an alien hand we see at 1:58?)
From the trailer it looks like Favreau has delivered another fun movie, but it’ll be interesting to see how general audiences respond to this. It’s not a well known property, but has a strong cast. It could go either way.
In the movie cowboy Jake Lonergan (Daniel Craig) has no memory of his past, and stumbles into the desert town of Absolution in 1800s Arizona with a mysterious shackle that encircles one wrist. As the 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 an invading alien force.
Cowboys & Aliens stars Olivia Wilde as elusive traveller Ella and Harrison Ford as Colonel Dolarhyde, and will be released July 29th 2011
