Cowboys & Aliens Trailer

Yet another movie to look forward to next summer! Universal has debuted the first teaser trailer via Yahoo for Jon Favreau's Cowboys & Aliens, the comic book adaptation starring Daniel Craig as Civil War vet Jake Lonergan. The cast also includes Olivia Wilde, Harrison Ford, Sam Rockwell, Adam Beach, Paul Dano, Noah Ringer and Clancy Brown. The footage I saw at Comic-Con was awesome, and this teaser is plenty of that same stuff, but it's still great to see. Favreau is an expert at building up buzz and this teaser will do just that - it looks great! The aliens have an old school, vintage sci-fi feel and the western stuff look solid. Enjoy!

Craig plays Jake Lonergan, a stranger with no memory of his past who stumbles into the hard desert town of Absolution. But the town is soon invaded by aliens and Jake must pull together a posse comprised of former opponents to combat these extraterrestrials. In addition to Daniel Craig, Cowboys & Aliens also stars Olivia Wilde, Sam Rockwell, Noah Ringer, Clancy Brown and the legendary Harrison Ford as Col. Dolarhyde. Jon Favreau is directing this adaptation from a screenplay co-written by Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci & Damon Lindelof. Universal is bringing Cowboys & Aliens in only 2D to theaters on July 29th, 2011 next summer.

  • Andrew K
    Very excited for this.
  • Tenacious V
    Jon Favreau has yet to let me down. Plus Daniel Craig, Harrison Ford, and the hotness that is Olivia Wilde... I'm in.
  • This looks even more awesome than I thought. Love how it teases you and doesn't show too much, but is still extremely satisfying.
  • All these awesome teaser trailers in one week...I don't know how much more I can take. Just kidding. Keep em coming Alex, MORE PLEASE. Looks like 2011 is going to be SWEEEEET:) I'm excited!
  • NeoSlyfer
    THAT WAS TOTALLY WICKED!!!!!!!!!!!!! Now the let down of green lantern can be forgiven
  • Micah
    hey, Green lantern Trailer maker people. This is how you do a teaser trailer!
  • The Observer
    I thought Craig was playing Lonergan? He isn't refered to as Zeke in the trailer. Is this something in the Graphic Novel? Awesome Trailer..
  • Looks good.
  • #9 Woops your right, that was an old name from an old synopsis, they changed it back to Jake Lonergan before shooting. Corrected it above! :)
  • dex
    Except for the wrist thingy,too iron man.. everything looks great.
  • talli
    damn, no sam rockwell in the trailer??? Looks great, anyway
  • gahga
    Not too impressed. Harrison Ford looked out of place in that trailer and the visual effects and the CGI in the "skyline" alien abductions were again not too impressive. The movie synopis in itself is great, but that trailer was stale.
  • cyn
    Olivia, Sam and Daniel~This looks awesome-I'm SO in!
  • atg2040
    I had no clue this movie was going to be this EPIC!!!!!
  • Jackson
    That's no teaser, that's a full-frontal preview. I'm not impressed. BUT. The director, producers, and exec producers have me thinking it'll surprise me.
  • As I mention on my blog not only is this a great trailer, but it also made me realize that Favreau doesn't get enough respect as a director even after directing a couple great movies. This movie has a true western feel to it and yet again makes you easily buy into his fantastical worlds.
  • yep
    Harrison Ford looks so awesome in this. Overall, this looks spectacular.
  • xaudioprox
    Holy shit! this is gonna rock. #14 stop smoking crack!!!
  • MiKe M?
    Look's Badass
  • Maxx
    Aha looks great 😉 though I got a western Jason Bourne feel in the opening scene aha
  • indyjack
    I just shat my pants, now put captain jack spaarow in this movie and you got yourself a movie!
  • Cracky
    I liked the beginning part with the bandits. Then it got really strained. But that's a good thing. Not much was shown other than the initial confrontation-- which means there will be some wicked scenes later on.
  • ray
    people are coming to conclusions based on a teaser?!? ridiculous, and i'm not talking about the teaser... on topic, what a tease! :)
  • A5J4DX
    when i first heard of this movie i thought it might be crap but this trailer changed my mind xD
  • Xerxex
    did he stab a guy in the dick? awesome teaser I'm in.
  • drcherd
    I dont know I need to see more, right now it looks like its going to disappoint.
  • Wokkiee
    Any movie with Daniel Craig is a good movie
  • AMG
    I TOTALLY AGREE WITH #2 (Kevin) & #5 (Gadder4311)! Pretty impressive!
  • Moon
    If this wasn't a western it would be old and stale. The western elements took an old story and made it into a must see movie next year.
  • bored
  • Happy Camper
    Looks OK, but so does every trailer.
  • Big Hoss
    #14, you're a douchebag, shut up. #32 it looks boring, cause you're a manic depressent loser... and pry homosexual #28 this isnt green lantern #17 who cares if you're not impressed, nobody. #23 Captain Jack Sparrow?!? Are you for real?
  • drcherd
    #34 haha true but I dont know man!!! it didnt look as cool as what I thought it was gonna be like.
  • indyjack
    top three reasons Big Hoss is an ass clown: 1. He calls himself Big Hoss 2. he had nothing funny or intelligent to add, other than glib remarks. 3. He makes lists like this p.s. i was kidding about the Jack sparrow comment Dumb Ass! and what the Hell is "pry Homosexual?"
  • Timmy
    Based on #34, it looks like the studio people are on full damage control. It's easy to manufacture false "i like it" comments with tens of different aliases on this site.
  • Bigger Hoss
    That trailer was terrible. Terrible acting by Ford and sucky alien scenes. (#37 proving a point)
  • Medium Sized Hoss
    But really, the trailer WAS bad.
  • Spider
    Awesome! I am exhilaratingly teased! Just when I thought I couldn't get too excited about a forthcoming flick! The Harrison Ford/ Daniel Craig team up is inspired! Clancy Brown, Sam Rockwell, and Olivia Wilde in this too. Looks like Favreau has another ace in the hole! :)
  • tir na nog
    Looks good,Ford looks cool,back to his best.
  • Jeep-Fu
    Holy crap! That looked bad ass! Based on that one trailer I'll go see this!
  • Raymond
    I had no idea about this movie until yesterday, read a bit about it was pretty excited. Now after seeing that teaser I am making this a day one must see. Craig + Ford = pure win!
  • deltavoyage
    Very, very, very nice.
  • CLAW
    I wish this was the only trailer they would show us until it gets released but you know the next trailer will show us everything and ruin any surprise we may have coming.
  • carlos
    Badass isn't the word I would use to describe this, I hope the actual trailer looks more enticing.
  • Geoff
    total mehfest
  • victor
    craig is awesome for this role, downey would've turned this into shit.
  • jah p
    Looks good, but it seems to have the same vibe as the "Outlander" movie that came out a couple of years ago about the alien visitor from another planet who fights with the vikings against an alien creature, seems to be the same concept.
  • harrison
    'Universal is bringing Cowboys & Aliens in only 2D to theaters on July 29th, 2011 next summer.' has it really gotten to the point where you have to point out that it will not be in 3d? looks good, great cast
    WOW 😀
  • Xerxex
    In 2-D only you say? C&A just took another giant step forward.
  • gonnarentit
  • David Banner
  • Jay
  • andi
    wait..isn't a teaser meant to be a teaser...this looked more like a small trailer to me 😀 as always revealing a bit too much, ain't seeing the full trailer for sure i want to enjoy this in a theatre.
  • Trailer looks good but you can never trust them. Most movies look good in the trailers, but most movies suck.
  • It looks like he has the thing from Ben 10 .... if Jon Favreau directed that, that would be awesome...
  • ConnachtFan
    I laughed at 1:28 mark when you can clearly see the cowboy being yanke din th eair by a guide wire....
  • Jimmy Love
    This looks like a good one to me, not a reboot or a remake, sequel, prequel & not in 3D well thats just about perfect then.
  • Jamie
    I can not wait for the prequel to this movie, I think its called 'Indians & Aliens'.
  • Fisherr
    I liked what has been done to the project, people will start hyping for the movie.Craig looks like he is gonna do a great job with Ford and the rest of the crew. Looking good for a teaser, long one. I will keep my eyes peeled for that projekt.
  • I am…
    just like the comic con footage. nothing new! Anyway, it's another hit for Favreau and More power to him. Have you noticed the effing credits as producers??? Spielberg,Ron Howard and Grazer...Whoa! That's a mega hit then! loll! Can't wait!!
  • I am…
    you're a nut Jamie @ 61, loll!
  • Adrian
  • JustinWhy
    Finally something that didn't put me to sleep 10 seconds into the trailer.
  • McWilly
    Looks F'n Sweet, awesome actors , great feel to it! @ All you manic depressent haters.....unless you get help, the glass will always be half empty in your world!
  • McWilly
    @ 59 I laughed at your grammer!
  • Clarke
    This is an even better version -
  • !5AAK
    Hell to the EF Yeah !
  • John Doe
    And I thought this trailer was going to suck... Feels soooooooo damn good to be wrong right about now.
  • Brian
    Eh, not sold yet. Just looks, okay.
  • McQueen
    Doesn't anyone else feel like Olivia Wilde's addition to this movie is just purely for her looks?...
  • acraig007
    McQueen.... Your point being ? When I first heard about this movie I thought it was going to be more of a comedy but it appears to be of a more serious tone. Still looks interesting though.
  • T
    I am worried about this movie, ppl laughed when they saw the title screen and were confused as to what was going on. I however think it looks awesome
  • Eli
    Doesn't look like it's gonna work.
  • Skmyaz
    needs more pirates.
  • Louie
    Western/Sci-fi? Sounds like a "love it or hate it" film. Pretty cool and really well made FX.
  • fredrick
    I think it is a cooool teaser.. cowboys? OLD.. aliens? so OLD.. cowboys and aliens!? VERY NEW!! i LIKE it though, Olivia wilde looks old here. is she really hot or just fake? she so sexy in tron!!
  • cinemabandit
    me like....ME LIKE!!!!!
