Daniel Craig Leaps Into Action in Second Preview Clip from Cowboys and Aliens
07.14.11 by BJSprecher
The first preview clip from director Jon Favreau's (Iron Man, Iron Man 2) new sci-fi and Western mash-up, Cowboys and Aliens, was released yesterday and it showed that, even though Jake Lonergan (Daniel Craig) can't remember who he is or why he is wearing an alien weapon around his wrist, he still knows how to throw a punch, especially when it is aimed at Colonel Dolarhyde (
Harrison Ford), the big man in the little town of Absolution who wants to put Lonergan in chains. Now, a second preview clip has been released that shows that Longergan remembers more than just fisticuffs as he chases down a fleeing alien spaceship on horseback in order to rescue Ella (Olivia Wilde), one of the few people in Absolution to show him some compassion.
Cowboys and Aliens was written by Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, and Damon Lindelof and is based on Scott Mitchell Rosenberg's Platinum Studios graphic novel of the same name about an alien invasion of the American Southwest in the 1800s. The supporting cast includes Paul Dano as Percy Dolarhyde, Keith Carradine as Sheriff Taggart, Abigail Spencer as Alice, Noah Ringer as Emmett and Sam Rockwell as Doc.
