The answer, if you’re confused, is no — but that doesn’t make the first official poster for “Cowboys & Aliens” any less awesome.
Yahoo Movies has posted the very first poster from “Cowboys & Aliens,” depicting an old Western hero (Craig) with his back turned to us, a rifle in one hand and a mysterious glowing wrist-mounted weapon on his other arm. In short, it’s a perfect picture of Wild West badassery.
Craig stars in “Cowboys & Aliens” as an amnesiac stranger who comes to the desert town of Absolution without a single memory of his past intact. What he lacks in history he more than makes up for with a mysterious shackle attached to his left wrist. The men and women of Absolution don’t exactly take kindly to the stranger’s presence, largely due to the fearful lifestyle that’s been instilled on them from the totalitarian Colonel Dolarhyde (Ford).
The stranger’s reputation takes a sharp turn upwards when monsters from the sky begin attacking the folks of Absolution, rendering the mysterious man as the town’s only hope. Forced to fight alongside each other or die alone, the stranger assembles all of the gunslingers, warriors and able-bodied individuals he can in order to defend Absolution from utter destruction.
