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

Monday saw the release of the all new domestic poster for Cowboys & Aliens.



Today, Tuesday, they unveiled the new international poster for the film.



I don't get it, do they not think the North American market would like a pretty lady on the poster?!

Still slated to open July 29th

Indeed, Olivia Wilde on a poster=gold. But I do like the look of the NA poster more, but sheesh what's with the lens flares these days?

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

I know this is done a lot with movie posters, but I'm going to ask it anyway: why aren't the actor's names lined up with the appropriate actor on the international poster? EG, why is Daniel Craig's name next to Olivia Wilde, Harrison Ford's name with Daniel Craig, and Olivia Wilde's name with Harrison Ford?

While there's no such thing as too much Olivia Wilde, I prefer the look of the North American poster, too.

The order in which names appear are a matter of which actor has top billing. The folks who put together the posters have nothing to do with that sort of stuff. It's more likely that the art people slap the poster together, and then the marketing people put the title, tagline, cast list, release date, etc., over the artwork.

I figured it was something like that. Still looks silly.

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

LatinoReview has posted the new theatrical trailer, #3.

Only a few new scenes but largely 95% just a recut of the last trailer from what I can tell.

Here is the movie synopsis again for any who might not yet know.
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.

This is a pretty common thing with movie posters that I see all of the time and it's bugged me since grade school.

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

Sorry to drag up a month old thread, but this was the latest (& longest) one that I found on this.

I haven't read through the entire thread, but I did search it and didn't find what I was looking for. I know that this movie is based on the graphic novel by the same name. But does anyone know if the novel was in turn inspired by this Far Side cartoon?


I don't know exactly what year that cartoon was created, but it was included in "The Last Chapter and Worse", which was published in September 1996. My father-in-law has that book, and I just happened to see that comic recently when I was flipping through it. From what I've read, the concept for a movie was first pitched in 1997 (long before the graphic novel came about), so with that time frame it's possible that the idea was implanted with the Far Side cartoon. But is that the case?

I'm sure even before the Far Side cartoon, it wasn't really a new idea.

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

Wow, reviews on this are really divided so far. Some seem to think the western/scifi mashup works really well and the movie's a lot of fun... and some don't really think it works at ALL.

Guess it was probably to be expected though. An odd concept like this just isn't going to work for everybody.
