It's time to load those pistols, saddle up your fastest horse and get ready for action Way Out West as the dream film-making trio of Jon Favreau, Steven Spielberg and Ron Howard gather their imaginations and predilections for all things cool in concepts and movies and team up with the equally iconic on-screen pairing of youth and experience-Daniel Craig (swapping his James Bond using Walther PPK for the most futuristic and alien tech device yet!) and Box Office Champ and film legend Harrison Ford (who keeps a similar character defining hat to the likes he wore for INDIANA JONES, but changes his bull-whip for a rifle instead)- for the ultimate tale of heroism against the unfamiliar. The "unfamiliar" being a hidden agenda carrying horde of alien menaces from beyond our planet, whose bio-technological ships and advanced weaponry hurtle through the western frontier of Arizona in search of Human prey in the epic motion picture COWBOYS & ALIENS, based on the acclaimed graphic novel written by Scott Mitchell Rosenberg, and hitting the big screens of the US from 29th July and in the UK from 19th August.

With a terrific ensemble cast who look tailor made for the cross-genre dramatic and physical conflicts, including the lovely Olivia Wilde (enjoying the crest of the wave of acting success with her super performance in TRON: LEGACY, as well as regular popular appearances in the hit NBC UNIVERSAL series HOUSE) as the mysterious Ella, who may also have a past connection with love interest Craig (playing the amnesiac fugitive soon on a quest of re-discovery, Jake Lonergan), plus the always consistently excellent Keith Carradine as Sheriff Taggart, the deep voiced, perfect for gritty westerns face of Clancy Brown as Meacham, and the always quirky Sam Rockwell as Ford's associate, Doc, this is one tale of alien invasion and excitement that's guaranteed to deliver all the hotly anticipated thrills, spills and blockbuster entertainment you can hope for, against a realistic and uncliched 19th century western back drop that keep its own highly successful dramatic and visual ingredient, plus its all-important integrity- intact amongst the spectacular fireworks!
