Comic-Con is well and truly over for this year, but before the thing closes I have some more CON related news, a pic from Jon Favreau‘s upcoming film Cowboys & Aliens which appeared on Saturday on the panels. The pic gives us our first REAL look at the film, and of current Bond Daniel Craig as a gunslinging desperado Jake Lonergan — I don’t know about you but this first pic looks killer with Craig sporting some sort of alien tech pointing at the sky.
For those who haven’t been following developement of Favreau’s film, the movie is based on Grphic Novel’s with the same title that mixes the sci-fi and Western genres that follow the story line “In Silver City, Arizona, Apache Indians and Western settlers must lay their differences aside when an alien spaceship crash lands in their city”. Sounds epic no?
I don’t know about you guys but cowboys mixing with aliens is like a dream come true for me, and with the likes of Iron Man
director Jon Favreau
mixed with combined efforts from Craig and co-stars Harrison Ford
(heaps!!), Olivia Widle
) and Sam Rockwell
) Im sure it’ll go down a treat — cheesy but true.
At the panel on Saturday the panel of Cowboy’s & Aliens
produced one of the biggest cheers out of the whole event, although not big enough to out cheer Marvels Avengers
panel! Harrison Ford
was lead out on stage in handcuffs, flanked by Director Favreau
and star Craig — joking that Ford had to be dragged to the event as he has never attend the event once. Which is odd considering the Star Wars
appearances are usually still pretty big.
All joking aside they then cut to a clip from the film (which I will hopefully find and post!), showing Craig’s character Jake in the deep west nursing a chest wound — which then cuts to a mexican-styled showdown which is then interrupted by the crashing of a alien ship. After that the actors didn’t do much question answering ad sort of let the footage, images and teaser (!!!) trailer do all the talkin’ for them!
Wel thats it, Cowboys & Aliens is due to be released in 2011 and is co-written by Lost‘s Damon Lindelof — so stay tuned for more info as it comes, especially some (hopefully) footage from the panel. Cheers, A
