Full Cowboys & Aliens Trailer Arrives

As promised by Director Jon Favreau, the new trailer for Western-meets-sci-fi adventure Cowboys & Aliens has now showed up online.

In case you’ve missed the previous trailers, teasers and clips, Cowboys finds Daniel Craig as a man with a serious case of amnesia drifting into the dusty desert town of Absolution. It’s a place ruled by the unflinching iron grip of Colonel Dolarhyde (Harrison Ford).

But that’s nothing compared to the chaos on the way as alien ships storm from the skies to abduct townsfolk and tear the place up with powerful beam weapons. The only person who seems to know what to do is Craig’s nameless wanderer, and he realises that the key to his identity lies with the invading extraterrestrials. Everyone – including the smart and beautiful traveller Ella (Olivia Wilde) and the wisecracking Doc (Sam Rockwell) – will have to band together to fight off the menace from the skies.

This latest promo adds starts off looking like a greatest hits compilation of what has gone before, but then rockets off to pastures new, with plenty of fresh footage and a peek at some of the wild set pieces we’re being promised. Oh, and Wilde wandering around sans clothes (but no naughty bits are on display, so it's SFW).
