'Cowboys & Aliens' has to be one of the better movie titles to come down the pike in quite a while, hearkening back to a past era of genre exploitation ('Earth vs. the Flying Saucers') and mixed-genre mashups ('Jesse James Meets Frankenstein's Daughter' and 'Billy the Kid vs. Dracula').
But titles alone don't make the movie. That's up to the directors and stars, something 'Cowboy's & Aliens' has in spades: There's hip director Jon Favreau and an all-star cast including Olivia Wilde, Harrison Ford, Daniel Craig, Sam Rockwell, Paul Dano, Walton Goggins, Keith Carradine and Adam Beach.
The film -- about aliens invading the Earth in 1873, with only ragtag cowboys and Apaches standing in their way -- has been getting a lot of buzz, to say the least and, now that its release date of July 29 is fast-approaching, DreamWorks/Universal has released a new trailer. Let's just hope the movie is as good as it's title.
Check out the trailer after the jump.
