New Set Photo from Jon Favreau’s COWBOYS & ALIENS Starring Daniel Craig – UPDATED

     August 19, 2010


Actor Noah Ringer (The Last Airbender) has tweeted a photo (not the one above, which is an official still) from the set of Jon Favreau’s upcoming sci-fi action western Cowboys & Aliens.  Along with Ringer, the film stars Daniel Craig, Olivia Wilde, Sam Rockwell, Paul Dano, Clancy Brown, Walton Goggins, and Harrison Ford. [Update: Universal has informed us that the photo is fake so we have taken it down. Also, Universal tells us that the Twitter account is fake.  Why anyone would want to impersonate Noah Ringer is beyond me.]

Cowboys & Aliens is set to open on July 29, 2011.

Here’s the official plot synopsis for Cowboys & Aliens.

1873.  Arizona 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 traveler 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.
