Nice to know the wire we see taking someone isn't a movie prop but an alien device.

Favreau is a man I've enjoyed in (and behind) movies for a long time.

When I first saw the trailer I didn't see the wire, but the second time I did a double take having seen the wire. Thought it was just missed cause they might be rushing the trailer. Glad to know it's intentional, kind of like a grappling hook I suppose.

I wasn't a huge fan of Iron Man 2, but agree this one could be fun. I love Favreau's conversational style ala Dinner for Five.

I saw the trailer today. I'm not sure I'll be able to take the movie as seriously as they intend, but it does look like fun. Enough fun to add to my Netflix queue, not necessarily to see in the theater.

I'm kind of worried. The movie seems to be taking a serious approach akin to "War of the Worlds" but the general audience might assume from the title it will be a funny action adventure movie.

From some comments on other boards people who saw the trailer attached to Harry Potter in the audience called it "stupid" or laughed
I noticed this when I saw the trailer in the theater yesterday - when the aliens shoot onto the screen and then when the title popped up, people were laughing quite a bit.

Re: Cowboys & Aliens, the first trailer is here.

^That's too bad. I know the premise is silly (although it shouldn't be any more silly than aliens attacking Washington DC like they usually do) but the trailer looks pretty intriguing to me. Also, Harrison Ford looks so natural in a western setting, it makes me surprised he hasn't been cast in westerns more often.

Re: Cowboys & Aliens, the first trailer is here.

There is a new poster courtesy of Empire.
It looks like director Jon Favreau's had AC/DC's Back In Black playing on a loop again, because the new international poster for Cowboys And Aliens is heavy on the dark stuff. But happily for all those of us who are getting more and more excited about it, it's also bloomin' cool and gives us a taste of what we're in for: old-fashioned gunslingers, and alien technology. Win!

Re: Cowboys & Aliens, the first trailer is here.

Cowboys and Aliens will be upping it's awareness factor during the SuperBowl this year.

The spot is confirmed.
Director Jon Favreau and Universal Studios announced today you'll be seeing a Super Bowl spot for Cowboys & Aliens, starring Daniel Craig, Harrison Ford, Olivia Wilde, Sam Rockwell, Adam Beach, Paul Dano, Noah Ringer, Keith Carradine, Clancy Brown, Ana de la Reguera and Abigail Spencer.

Favreau tweeted that they are cutting the trailer right now for the film, opening in theaters on July 29, 2011.
The fact that they are "cutting the trailer right now" is an optimistic sign to me that this SuperBowl trailer is going to have new footage from the one released back in late November. Can't wait!!

Re: Cowboys & Aliens, the first trailer is here.

Newest spot since the SuperBowl to air this Thursday, 4/14, during American Idol for Cowboys & Aliens.

Universal Pictures announced today that the full-length trailer for Cowboys & Aliens will debut during a commercial break of Fox's "American Idol" on Thursday, April 14. The trailer will come online following the TV premiere.
I don't watch AI so I'll be checking online to see what the new trailer looks like.

Everything up to this point looks like it'll be a fun movie!

You'd think they would've aired the trailer last night during Oliva Wilde's return to House.
