Showdown in the 1800’s in Arizona between cowboys and aliens.
Based on the book by Scott Mitchell Rosenberg, Cowboys & Aliens is situated in the 1800’s in Arizona, where the tough local cowboys, led by fierce gunslinger Zeke Jackson (Daniel Craig), and the Apache Indian tribe have been feuding for some time. Their fight is interrupted, by the appearance of an alien spaceship, with an alien creature that’s insistent on capturing the human race. It’s time for a six shooter shoot out between these cowboy thugs and alien space invaders, and there might be a temporary peace between the cowboys and Indians as they both take on the extraterrestrial threat. Jon Favreau directs. Script by Star Trek writers Alex Kurtzman & Roberto Orci, with assistance from Damon Lindelof. Olivia Wilde, Harrison Ford, and Sam Rockwell are part of the cast.
