Cowboys & Aliens rustles up a third full trailer.

It’s starting to feel like we’ll soon be done with all of the Summer movies and we’re still a couple of days from July.  But with the summer movies effectively kicking off with Fast Five it’s already been two months. So in about 4 weeks time the world will start to get some Cowboys & Aliens fun, as that film attempts to see of Captain America and his alien tech using bad guys, with Daniel Craig’s alien tech wielding good guy (or bad guy, he can’t remember)

You should be pretty familiar with this by now, but here we get a bit more of Jake Lonergan’s (Daniel Craig) memory loss, a bit more of Woodrow Dolarhyde’s (Harrison Ford) leadership. The Dreamworks' synopsis follows:-

1875.  New Mexico Territory.  A stranger (Craig) with no memory of his past stumbles into the hard desert town of Absolution.  The only hint to his history is a mysterious shackle that encircles one wrist.  What he discovers is that the people of Absolution don’t welcome strangers, and nobody makes a move on its streets unless ordered to do so by the iron-fisted Colonel Dolarhyde (Ford).  It’s a town that lives in fear.
But Absolution is about to experience fear it can scarcely comprehend as the desolate city is attacked by marauders from the sky.  Screaming down with breathtaking velocity and blinding lights to abduct the helpless one by one, these monsters challenge everything the residents have ever known.
Now, the stranger they rejected is their only hope for salvation.  As this gunslinger slowly starts to remember who he is and where he’s been, he realizes he holds a secret that could give the town a fighting chance against the alien force.  With the help of the elusive traveller Ella (Olivia Wilde), he pulls together a posse comprised of former opponents—townsfolk, Dolarhyde and his boys, outlaws and Apache warriors—all in danger of annihilation.  United against a common enemy, they will prepare for an epic showdown for survival.

As well as being directed by John Favreau (Iron Man I & II, Elf) and staring the current Bond and Indiana Jones, the film also stars one of my favourite actors of the past 12 years or so, Sam Rockwell (Moon, Galaxy Quest, Iron Man 2). It also has a role for one Noah Ringer, doubtless hoping to wash the stench of The Last Airbender out of his fledgling career. (How you can make a film that bad out of a story that good still escapes me, not that much blame goes to young master Ringer).

Yeee Hawww it’s alien lynching time!
