Directed by Jon Favreau, the man behind "Iron Man" and "Elf," this is the summer tent-pole to keep on your radar. We don't care that it's not even Christmas, yet.
"Cowboys & Aliens," to say the least, delivers on its titular promise. There are cowboys. There are aliens. And they are raring to pummel and zap the living crap out of one another.
We originally thought the film would benefit the cowboys and cowgirls, played by Harrison Ford, Daniel Craig and Olivia Wilde, with home court advantage --- the aliens being ducks out of water in the Wild West.
Gauging from all the quick cuts of alien action, these creatures are anything but. They fling and fire and capture cowpokes with ease. And yet, Wilde still finds time to disrobe. God bless Hollywood.
We still have plenty of questions. What is that contraption around Daniel Craig's wrist? And, hey, do you think Daniel Craig is an alien? And, like, will this movie officially revive Harrison Ford's career?
We want to know the answers now, but we'll have to wait until July 29, 2011, when the films opens nationwide.
