Daniel Craig, Harrison Ford and Olivia Wilde step back in time into 1873 in the latest Hollywood Blockbuster, Cowboys & Aliens. Directed by Jon Favreau, of Iron Man and Iron Man 2 fame, this sci-fi journey into the Wild West is sure to be a big hit, with Daniel Craig swapping his James Bond gadgets for slightly more tradition weaponry as a cowboy.
In Cowboys & Aliens, Jake Lonergan (Daniel Craig) finds himself in Arizona Territory, with no memory of his past. However, he soon finds out that he’s a wanted man, with Colonel Dolarhyde (Harrison Ford) attempting to catch this wanted criminal. Jake also has a shackle around his wrist, but things are set to get a whole lot worse, as the city of Absolution is attacked by alien spaceships.
Now the tables have turned, Jake is no longer just a stranger and is now the city’s only hope for salvation. Jake and Colonel Dolarhyde must ally together with fellow past enemies to protect the city from the aliens. What’s more, Jake’s shackle holds the key to survival and with the help of traveller Ella (Olivia Wilde), the gunslinger starts to remember his past and unites with Apache warriors and outlaws in an epic showdown against the alien force.
Cowboys & Aliens is released in UK cinemas and IMAX® everywhere on Wednesday August 17. Watch the trailer below for a sneak peek…
