I’m sorry, but this just doesn’t look cool…
Love the concept, but bad effects.
Is CGI somehow getting worse?
Good spot. Smart to show more of the sci-fi elements and effects – they’ve pack more into these 30 seconds than they did in the entire 2 1/2 minute trailer. That’s what a 30-second spot is all about. Showing off the visuals and the talent. Also, the western/sci-fi hybrid is looking more fresh, original and fun with every new form of advertising.
Heheh, good one
I don’t think I will see this though as this is not my kind of movie, you know
Woooo! Cowboys & Aliens is going to be huge! I’ll be going on opening night with all my girls! Hahah.. freakin’ fantastic, can’t wait! OH YEAH BABY!!!
treated myself to a thai massage today and am still giggling over the female masseuse’s major fascination by my BIG beautiful butt hahha… It’s mesmerising!
That was not a great trailer. In fact, it was pretty so-so.
Gosh… This will bomb so hard. And this all looks so serious. But when you watch it you just burp in laugh. Every time they show Daniel’s stoned face I can’t…. That movie looks idiotic.
I don’t know what emotion Daniel tries to show with that face expression but he just looks ridiculous.
yet, no doubt you’ll be there opening weekend for Michael Bay’s shitfest that is ‘Transformers 3′
yeah, you will..
No story. Since Inception, especially, you need a story.
Inception had a story? Maybe if I could have stayed awake, I would have noticed.
A blockbuster with an original point of difference. Smart work to those who championed this. It’s going to be huge.
I’m willing to give Cowboys & Aliens a chance.
Besides, it’s not in eyeball-frazzling 3D, which is a plus.
This is gonna tank in a special way.
It is Wild Wild West all over again. Big Matrix-y looking vehicles and cowboy hats just don’t go together. It was a bad, crazy idea that never should have been made. Poor taste will beget a huge write-off. This movie is like wearing plaid and paisley or putting ice cream on a pizza. But it was a comic so of course some dummy studio exec decides to greenlight it.
I don’t have a horse in this race, but I’m betting you’re dead wrong.
Wow– so many bitter naysayers– all of whom will be proven wrong. Lighten up– this looks like a really entertaining summer movie. It’s not pretending to be The Sorrow and the Pity.
Jeeez, does anyone criticize your work at McDonalds? The fries seem fine to me. Leave the film making to professionals.
I agree. It is what it is, the natural melding of scifi with its source material, cowboy movies.
this looks just as bad as it sounds
More antiAmerican junk disguised as… more antiAmerican junk!! I not only pass, I SUPERPASS!!
Ribcage alien spaceship??????
Not a good idea to begin with, plus the CGI rendering is terrible! This will definitely be Redbox rental.
I’m more interested in seeing this movie now than I was with the first preview. Basically, Daniel Craig = I’m there unless it’s a total garbagefest. You can’t tell much from this preview which is both good and bad.
where are the Aliens?
and why did the ships look so bad I thought ILM was doing the work and transformers is much harder and looks so much better
The cowboy hats and ray guns pairing is a novelty that will wear off quickly — they’re going to need actual characters and an actual STORY to sustain this thing and so far I’ve seen evidence of neither.
Keeping an open mind on this one, but so far the marketing materials make it look like a one trick pony.
This looks super boring. The CGI looks terrible. NO interest in seeing this.
This looks so STUPID!! Time for Harrison Ford to hang up his coat and ride off into the sunset.
