Watch the Best Trailer Yet for Cowboys & Aliens


Leader image for Watch the Best Trailer Yet for Cowboys & Aliens

When Jon Favreau said that the summer of 2011 was going to be like Omaha Beach, it’s unlikely he thought his own blockbuster would be one of the casualties. Yet despite mountains of advanced hype, lately the buzz seems a bit quiet on the Cowboys & Aliens front. Does that have to do with the film still being seven weeks from release, or with the somewhat still-born trailers? Whichever the case, Universal is ready to make a push: The studio debuted a new trailer for the genre mash-up during the Guy’s Choice Awards on Friday night, and — well, the results speak for themselves. Click through to watch the best Cowboys & Aliens trailer yet.

More explosions! More Sam Rockwell! More Some Paul Dano! Daniel Craig saying complete sentences! (Sorta.) This isn’t as good as the mind-numbingly perfect trailers for Transformers: Dark of the Moon or Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II, but it’s certainly better than anything Rise of the Planet of the Apes is selling.

Cowboys & Aliens shoots into theaters on July 29.
