Yet another movie trailer that has come out this week, but this one is absolutely spectacular. I cannot wait until this movie comes out to theaters, based on this trailer anyways. Cowboys and Aliens, directed by Jon Favreau (Iron Man, Elf), is a 100-page 2006 graphic novel adaptation created by Scott Mitchell Rosenberg and written by Fred Van Lente and Andrew Foleyand. Favreau has always had a very keen eye for what’s right in a film and great sense of direction. Cowboys and Aliens features Daniel Craig, Harrison Ford, Olivia Wilde, and Sam Rockwell.

Synopsis (via Apple)
1873. Arizona Territory. A stranger (Craig) 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 (Ford). 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 (Olivia Wilde), 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.
