Yesterday we saw the release of the first poster for Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. Today, we get another poster, this time it’s for Cowboys and Aliens, the upcoming film from Iron Man director Jon Favreau. While the poster looks great, what has me even more excited is the first trailer, which will be hitting the internet on Wednesday.
The official synopsis is as follows.
1873. Arizona Territory. A stranger 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. 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 has 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, 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.
Starring Daniel Craig, Harrison Ford and Sam Rockwell, and being penned by Roberto Orci & Alex Kurtzman & Damon Lindelof, this film is just about guaranteed to be awesome. There is simply no way you can go wrong with that squad. Check out the full poster below and check back Wednesday for the trailer.
