Teaser trailer for Jon Favreau's COWBOYS & ALIENS oozes John Ford and early Spielberg!

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. With the release of the teaser trailer for Jon Favreau's Summer 2011 tentpole entry COWBOYS AND ALIENS, I figured now would be a good time to talk a tiny bit about something fun that happened a week or two ago. But let's look at the trailer first, shall we? Yahoo has it in much better form than their exclusives yesterday.

Pretty damn good, right? It's a real teaser. You don't see the aliens, you don't know the whole damn story in advance and you don't get all the money shots 8 months out from release. I was in LA recently for a quick in and out trip (that's a hit and run trip, 36 hours in the city, not that I was just there for In-N-Out Burger... although I did that, too) and while I was there a visit to the edit bay of Cowboys and Aliens dropped into my lap, an offer you can't refuse no matter how busy your schedule is. Understandably Favreau doesn't want me to detail every single bit of the nearly 45 minutes I watched reported until a little later, but I will tell you that the talk I was hearing on the set about going for a John Ford aesthetic wasn't placating the movie geek. This is a western first, down to the casting of all involved, from the Steve McQueen-in-Magnificent-Seven-looking Daniel Craig to Keith Carradine as the kind but tough Sheriff (which felt a little like an extension of his Wild Bill Hickock performance in Deadwood) to Olivia Wilde who has never been more exotic and gorgeous onscreen to Paul Dano's pampered rich kid slimebag to Sam Rockwell as the barkeep to Clancy Brown as the preacher with a shotgun. Favreau wasn't going for a John Ford feel in this crazy sci-fi action film, he wanted it to be a John Ford movie before the aliens show up. And they don't show up for a little while, letting us get to know the characters a bit before the shit hits the town. In the first 40 minutes of the movie we are introduced to our characters, every single one gets a moment to make an impression (especially the introduction of Harrison Ford's Col. Dolarhyde, the most feared man in the West until the aliens show up... seriously, nobody has treated Ford like this much of a badass since that shot of the mine-cart light illuminating the pissed off Dr. Jones in Temple of Doom) and then they quickly have to band together in order to save their loved ones. There was a bit of Hitchcock tease in the opening, only glimpsing aliens as lights in the sky or, when one of the fighters is downed by Craig, as a silhouette in a window. Matty Libatique's lighting is top notch as always (between this and Aronofsky's Black Swan I'm tempted to write him a love letter, all my i's dotted with hearts and glitter sprinkled in the envelope). The first two reels I watched from beginning to end and we only made one time jump so that I could get a glimpse at Legacy (nee Stan Winston Studios) Effects' animatronic alien. The set was spectacular (more on that later) and the moment I saw, involving young Noah Ringer giving a surprisingly good performance that makes me hate how badly M. Night fucked up The Last Airbender even more, was tense, creepy and more importantly really there. There was a menace to the alien that I wasn't expecting. Cowboys and Aliens isn't goofy, something that could have easily been the instant knee-jerk for the filmmakers considering the subject matter and the reason I'm personally excited (and happy to see that excitement spreading via this new trailer) is that we're seeing one of our better big budget filmmakers taking genre seriously... two genres in this case and if what I've seen is any indication we could have that rare summer blockbuster that is exciting, thrilling, entertaining, but also doesn't treat us like we're ADHD children that just want something shiny dangled before us every 2 minutes. That's it from me. What'd you think of the trailer? -Quint quint@aintitcool.com Follow Me On Twitter

    Could just be a very well cut trailer, but I love the cast and the atmosphere. And Ford looked all kinds of awesome. I'm hyped.

  • Nov. 17, 2010, 1:01 p.m. CST

    I liked it.

    by phifty2

    At the end I thought Ford was going to say "I got to get me one of those." and ruin the whole thing. <p> And Craig better be prepping for the next Bond film. And news on that now that it seems like all obsticles are out of the way?

  • Nov. 17, 2010, 1:01 p.m. CST

    Looks Great!

    by Ivan_Mtl

    The trailer really looks great. I am a big fan of both the science fiction and western genres, and I'm surprised that nobody has thought to combine them before (okay, there is West World, but that was a theme park gone wild). We are all so used to aliens attacking earth in present day, but you have to think that they probably had the same technology100 - 150 years ago as well (and earth was certainly much more vunerable to attack back then). Why not the medeival period as well? Knights slaying what would become the basis for dragons in mythology. If this is a hit, I'm sure somebody will do it.

    ...looks pretty serious for a film titled 'Cowboys and Aliens'. Also looks like it could be a return of the Harrison Ford we all know and love! Can't believe i'm actually excited about this...

    Favreau is fast becoming one of my favorite directors

    by Acappellaman

    He knows how to use humor in movies, and he directs kick-ass action sequences. Bay could learn a lot from him!

  • Nov. 17, 2010, 1:09 p.m. CST

    Oh, and excellent casting!

    by Ivan_Mtl

    I would go see this movie if it was just an ordinary western with the talent that is assembled both on, and off screen.

  • Nov. 17, 2010, 1:10 p.m. CST

    Looking very good.

    by jimmy rabbitte

    This looks like the Harrison Ford we haven't seen, since 'The Fugitive'; and it's, also, looking like a nice return to form for Favreau, after he got handcuffed, by Marvel when he was making Iron Man 2. That trailer made me want to go see this.

    by thot

    ...and it looks very promising. Craig was good casting for this. He pulls off the bad-ass cowboy thing quite well. Here's hoping Harrison Ford shows some of the ol' spark. He seems so bored and uninspired in his films as of late.

  • Nov. 17, 2010, 1:19 p.m. CST

    Han Solo

    by WillKeane

    I for one am really excited to see Harrison Ford start a new career path. No more carrying a movie by himself but taking the older Sean Connery approach and playing second fiddle. Hell, most of the roles are the best anyways. Hopefully this is the start of a second wind for Ford. Growing up watching him as Solo and Jones, I for one am very excited to see him reestablish himself.

    Wild Wild West, Back to the Future III, Brisco County Jr, much of the steampunk genre. But yeah, I do like period sci-fi/horror.

  • Nov. 17, 2010, 1:21 p.m. CST

    Craig even puts on the hat like a nod to Indy.

    by phifty2

    And it's nice to see him wake up from an alien abduction(I assume that's what happened)with a cool wrist gun instead of a sore asshole.

  • Nov. 17, 2010, 1:22 p.m. CST

    Trailer is great, Ron Howard sucks...

    by deathblow64

    but the movie still looks like the best of 2011 crop so far. Too bad Howard is attached to it.

    Scifi and Western have been combined many times before.the ones i know: Starcraft,BraveStarr,Saber Rider and the Star Sheriffs,WestWorld,Firefly,there is an Outer Limits episode with Aliens in the Wild West,there is the Weird West comic series and if you check Wikipedia there is a list with many b-movies and tv episodes set in the Wild West with Aliens.<br /> <p>Besides this movie is based on a comic,in other words it is not as original as you think it is.

    by Bruce of all Trades

    Would've meant another 2 hours of him stroking his own cock at the thought of how awesome he is, being uber-cocky and a know-it-all (despite having amnesia, from the look of it). Plus it's beginning to feel a bit redundant seeing him in fucking everything nowadays.

    My faith in genre cinema has been RAISED TODAY.

    by The Reluctant Austinite

    I'll be honest, the last two Summers have severely shaken my enthusiasm as a genre film fan and I thought I had either out-aged the imaginative film genre or I'd become imaginatively obsolete in regards to what people want in genre films today. Then all in one day I see THIS, which has me as excited as a schoolboy who just discovered Famous Monsters, and I see the "Green Lantern" trailer which looks much better than I expected after the bad feeling I got from the tone projected in the terrible Entertainment Tonight footage which seem to edit together the worst possible moments in order to make the film look as dumb as possible. I think about upcoming stuff I'm actually excited about again like "Tron: Legacy," "Don't be Afraid of the Dark" and "The Hobbit," and suddenly things don't seem as dark. For weeks I was just cruising the site seeing piece after piece about "Transformers 3," which is exactly the kind of film that has ultimately made me feel alienated by modern genre cinmema. Harry's description of modern genre film makers treaing " us like we're ADHD children that just want something shiny dangled before us every 2 minutes" is absolutely on target and something I wish more critics and fans would rally against instead of allowing those movies to make $300 million "cause it's got good effects so just turn off your brain and have fun." Don't write good reviews of something shinny that will be forgotten in three months. Think before you write! Anyway, what I'm saying is that I'm hearing good things and seeing hopeful signs for the furture of imaginative cinema. It feels good to hopeful again.

    by blackwood

    I expected goofy from the title alone, although I was a bit suspicious of myself when the teaser poster dropped. I'm really impressed. Fantastic trailer. I didn't think it was possible for me to love Daniel Craig more, but I do.<p>More than anyone who has tried/announced that they intend to try in recent times Favreau really seems to get the eighties Amblin vibe. Starting with ZATHURA.

  • Nov. 17, 2010, 1:36 p.m. CST

    does Craig speak?

    by zom-bot.com

    i need to watch it again- does he say ANYthing? if not, i'm guessing it's more than amnesia. i'm guessing he's either a shape-shifting or corpse-hopping alien himself.

    by templesweeper

    Dang, I was kinda hoping it would be cool, but man...that looks freaking great. It could ultimately disappoint, but it wasn't like I had high expectations to begin with. Love the cast, love the look...and that is always a great place to start. I don't even know that I WANT to see any more than what I just saw. I'd rather be surprised. This trailer did what trailers are supposed to do. Thank you, Mr. Trailer Editor Person.

    Quint, also (as Bradzhul) said - how does this trailer ooze John Ford?<p> Have you even seen a John Ford movie dude?<p> This film looks more in line with recent 'actiony' westerns like TOMBSTONE and QUICK AND THE DEAD. No bad thing. But not John Ford.

    The only thing 'Ford' about this so far that I see...

    by carlotta_valdes

    ...besides Harrison, would be all the great character actors that are inserted in this. Keith Carradine, Clancy Brown, Sam Rockwell, Walter Goggins, Paul Dano along with Ford and Craig?...that's one kick-ass contemporary John Ford cast right there. If what Quint says is true...that they're actually taking a 'Stagecoach'like approach to the story arch, and taking the time to introduce and establish this great cast of characters before lead and lasers start flying, this could be great.

    and if this is a 'teaser'-

    by zom-bot.com

    then i don't want to see any more either. this seemed the length of a standard trailer but hooked me, and showed me enough to hook me without giving away the entire movie. that's what trailers USED to do. i guess that is called a teaser now. so if this is a teaser, what do you call that shitty SUPER 8 'teaser' thing they filmed before the movie has even begun production, shows us nothing, and arouses no wonder or interest?

    It does look surprisingly good, however...

    by MandrakeRoot

    ...am I the only one who thinks even that was too much for a so-called teaser? When I think of teaser I think of 1 minute trailer with maybe one scene or something like TDK with the Joker teaser. This was more like a trailer...almost three minutes long, and one too many money shots. I know by modern standards it does seem like they held back a lot which is good, but I still think that was way more than a tease. But besides the moronic title, it looks pretty badass, particularly Daniel Craig.

    by Rocco Curioso

    Good to see the old boy so lively. Here's hoping it spans the entire movie.<P>Yes, as teaser trailers go... that one hints at a potentially winning movie. But I no longer trust good trailers. A *mediocre* trailer usually indicates a movie of similar quality; cat's outta the bag/move along, nothing to see here. "The Phantom Menace" seemed to usher in a new era of truly impressive trailers that ultimately yielded piss-poor movies. Not always the case, but far too frequently.<P>If George Lucas left one significant imprint on American cinema with the SW Prequels, it was how to cut a trailer that fools the shit out of almost everyone.

    by THX1968

    I fucking hated Iron Man 2, but that doesn't mean that Favreau can't rock it out. I don't think you'll be seeing a sloppy piece of shit in Cowboys & Aliens, not with Craig, Ford and Spielberg hanging around. Won't get too loose as Iron Man 2 did. Then we have Super 8 and Green Lantern to look forward to. I guess it all can't be worse than last summer.

    This is the western version of "Outlander" instead of Vikings they've got cowboys. It even starts the same way with the hero not waking up not knowing where he is.

    It's worth it just to see the end credits when Mike and the Bots skewer Leonard Maltin for giving Laserblast 2-1/2 stars. They then proceed to list all these great movies that Maltin gave similar scores....the obvious joke being that Maltin evidently considers Laserblast to be as good as, or superior to such films as:<p> Being There<p> Taxi Driver<p> Animal House<p> The Name of the Rose<p> A Fish Called Wanda<p> Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom<p> Amadeus<p> Marathon Man<p> Outlaw Josey Wales<p> Unforgiven<p> Monty Python and the Holy Grail<p> A Bridge to Far<p> ...and I will just finish this off with...<p>BLADE RUNNER (2 stars)<p>That's right, Leonard Maltin thinks Laserblast is better then Bladerunner !!

    But wont redefine any genres. It'll be like peter Jackson's "Lovely Bones" in a sense that he enjoyed the source material and just probably needed to get out of his system. He really needs a fresh vision for Iron Man 3 cause 2 was a teeny weeny little stale.

    Elf and Zarathustra Were Great

    by kevinwillis.net

    Both very good movies, but very well directed. Perhaps, in some cases, better than their source material. Or, in the case, directed better than acted by Will Farrell, playing a--get this!--over the top man-child!<br><br> I really thought Zarathustra was very well directed. Not the highest quality source material, but if you watch it for pacing, framing, editing, the performances . . . it's a really good film.<br><br>Sort of like Steven Spielberg's Always is not the greatest script (or the best actor choices--Richard Dreyfuss as a hotshot forest fire fighting pilot?). But if you just watch it for how it was directed, it's beautiful. Why Spielberg seems incapable of capturing that effortlessly cinematic beauty in any of his recent films, I got no idea. But I digress.<br><br> Iron Man was awesome. The lowest quality film he's directed so far is Iron Man 2. Which was still pretty good. So, I'm expecting this will be a very rewarding film to watch.

    What the hell are you talking about? That was a $50 million dollar film that was released for 2 weeks, despite fairly good reviews and business.

    Harrison will always be legendary. It's a shame that things kinda changed after the 80's. I don't know who to blame-- us, or the media (mostly the media). But I have yet to see the Harrison of today. The best scene from Blade Runner was when he broke Rachel's heart in his apartment without even flinching by telling her she was a replicant. And yes, he was also Han in the SW originals borrowing lines from Kurosawa's black and whites (ESB). Kids these days will never know. That's something I've come to terms with. I'm with you, man.

    ...I don't think anyone's hating on Harrison Ford, I think it's because he's such an icon that when he does a crappy movie we're all so disappointed. I do agree with the TBer that said he should do more character roles (although the whole - 'I want that man...' thing was a bit much for me. Channeling Hackman in 'Unforgiven?). I loved 'Outlander', a film that got no studio support. Everyone I've recommended it to liked it: it's not 'Star Wars', just a cool twist on the genre. I don't see Craig as one-dimensional at all. Watch 'Layer Cake' - he's awesome in it. And even though the film itself is 8 months away, the trailer still looks better than Green Lantern's, wires and all. I know - right?

    by zinc_chameleon

    What impressed me is how every detail I saw on the screen was so well thought through. Craig's character wakes up, and doesn't have time to figure out who put the fancy shackle on his wrist. When Olivia asks him 'Are they demons?" he could have taken the classic hero posture, and calmed her; instead he stays in bad-ass character. And Harrison Ford in the half-light (you're right about the lighting) looking ugly and old and mean and serious really does work. Remember when he was the bad guy on Kung Fu? He always made a better heavy than a hero, if you ask me.

I also appreciate their and ZOMBOT's suggestions for movies and shows that I should check out - especially Burrowers, as I am a big Clancy Brown (Kurgan/Luthor/Carnival) fan. I would definitely add HIGH PLAINS DRIFTER to any list of mixed genres movies, as it one of my favorites. Also, Michael Mann's THE KEEP, with all its flaws (mostly editing) is a movie that I always revisit. It is just about the most wonderfully strange movie I have ever seen.

    the cowboy stuff was pretty solid- the creatures were pretty cool looking (watch the making of feature to see how they are made!) their feeding gimmick was kind of just that...gimmicky for creepy's sake, not really a scientific or plausible thing....i think it had a typical 'bet you forgot about _____, didn't ya?' ending though.

    So Harry Gregson-Williams is doing the score?

    by The_Genteel_Gentile

    Well, Harry Gregson-Williams (Seraphim Falls, Shrek, Kingdom Of Heaven, Spy Game) isn't a bad choice but I'd prefer Alan Silvestri (BTTF, Young Guns II, The Mexican, Quick & The Dead) or Bruce Broughton (Silverado, Tombstone, Monster Squad). <p>James Newton Howard (Wyatt Earp, Waterworld, Hidalgo, Signs) would be all kinds of awesome for this too but I guess he already has a pretty full plate. <p>And what happened to John Debney being Favreau's go-to-guy? C'mon Favreau where's your loyalty at man? Must be because Debney mentioned how Favreau and company tied his hands from doing the really great thematic score for Iron Man 2 that he had intended on. That's bad on you Favreau! But just like that trusted old bottle of Febreze, Cowboys & Aliens looks like it should erase much of the foul stench left in IM2's wake. So that's good on you Favreau!

    I don't care about anyone's track record when it comes to a TV show or movie. I judge the current product on its perceived merits. Everything great and wonderful that Spielberg has directed and produced in the past didn't change the suckage of the TRANSFORMERS movies one iota for me. And whatever crap that Orci and Kurtzman may have written in the past doesn't change their current work either.

    John Ford? Spielberg? WTF?

    by Krinkle

    Just because a movie is a Western, that certainly doesn't mean it's anything approaching John Ford. Have you actually seen a John Frod film? Ford was one of the great filmmakers of all time, truly, and to watch sixty seconds of pop-western footage and describe it as "oozing John Ford" is an insult to Ford. And I'm not even gonna bring up the face that the only thing that resembles "early Spielberg" are the lights in the sky. All this oozes is money. Jon Favreau is a true, true hack - and he will disappoint you again and again. He has not an ounce of vision, chops, or anything. I mean, I'm sure he's a nice guy... I do love Harrison Ford, though. How did he get mixed up with this bunch?

    by justmyluck

    ...then I saw the Orci and Kurtzman credit. Their primary production asset may to be turning out pages rapidly; since its not for converting "Snakes on a Plane" into "E.T.s on the Ranch". Depressing to see Craig and Ford in this but there's always hope Favreau can elevate the "concept".

    by catlettuce4

    It's nice to see a fantasy concept treated as something other than a goofy joke. This is like the opposite of the Green Lantern trailer... Silly concept? Perhaps, but not when treated seriously. The tone makes all the difference. And seeing Ford in a potentially cool genre picture that is NOT Indiana Jones is kind of amazing. I'm looking forward to this based just on the teaser.

    Picking on Iron Man 2....

    by catlettuce4

    Guys... you followed the development of that movie right? You know Favreau stated he wanted an extra year to work on the story and make sure it was as good as it could be, and Marvel said no, right? The man did what he could with the time he had available. He probably saved it from being worse that it was, which, in the end, was an entertaining but somewhat flawed film. You are movie buffs, you must know how things work in this business by now, right? Oh, and it wasn't all Raimi's fault that Spidey 3 had problems either, but that's for a different Talkback.

    Well, to give the devil his due, Harry Gregson-Williams's score for SERAPHIM FALLS is really bvery good. I was suprised. KINGDOM OF HEAVEN has half a great score, the other half is irritating beyond description. And he seems to restrain himself quite a lot for the two Ben Affleck directed movies, which is a good thing. Otherwise, his scores are fucking pudrid shit, the equivalent of a movie score what Bob Orci and fucking Jar Jar Abrams are respectively to screenwriting and directing. He could get his METAL GEAR SOLID score and shove it up his fucking ass. Fuck, does that score irritates the shit out of me!

    by D_T

    I didn't know anything about the source material (the GN), or really anything about the movie other than a few of the stars, directors, the poster that was in another TB. <p> So the tone totally threw me off, in a good way! I guess I was expecting something more like Men in Black + Wild Wild West, and we're getting 3:10 to Yuma + [Cameron] Aliens. <p> Some outstanding H. Ford in the trailer, and Craig is fantastically badass (I'm a huge fan of his Bond, even if the 2nd movie was so-so). I guess some of the crew has some questionable work, but overall the trailer and caliber of the actors gives me really high hopes!

Just because he's had a few turds, like Crystal Skull, doesn't mean hacks like BAY are taking anything away from him. And yes, I love War of the Worlds. It has some of the most incredible scenes in a Sci-Fi/action film ever. The first time the Tripod is revealed? Incredible.
