    Just watched the trailer for this, not knowing anything about it - but I think I've found a film I NEED to see next year:



    Mysterious stranger with weird bracelet?
    Flying Saucers, Grizzled Lawmen & Outlaws ?
    Six Guns vs Death Rays?
    James Bond, Indiana Jones & Thirteen?

    Where do I sign? :D

    I think this is one of those films that if you read a transcript of the trailer you would think it was the biggest pile of dog poo and you would be wondering what the suits had been sniffing during the pitch when they gave it a greenlight. However, watching the trailer makes me very curious so I think I'll go and see this one.

    Kind of reminds me of Outlander in premise, which I enjoyed - mind you that might be because I won the Blu Ray in a competition.

    This pretty much sums it up for me!

    The premise is very, very daft. On the other hand, it's got Daniel Craig in and he's no small fish - could be worth a watch.

    Cowboys AND Aliens, I think you're getting confused with Monsters Vs Aliens (also fun).

    This looks like it could be good, could probably make a fairly good game shame they'd probably muck it up.

    Looks utterly utterly ****. A mishmash of bollocks. Not nonsense. Nonsense would be entertaining.

    It's like someone with a fetish for Bond, Indi and Firefly threw it all into a pot then mixed and forgot to stop.

    I think everyone else needs to open their eyes, this looks ****ing ****! Even Olivia Wilde can't save this one.

    Looks like a film that will be watched once, or not have to wait and see.

    Olivia Wilde. I don't need any other reason to spend my money on this.

    I think someone needs a change of glasses! :p

    Why are people getting so excited over it? I just don't understand. It doesn't seem to have anything positive going for it.

    Looks genuinely awful. I suppose the premise is a good idea - alien encounter set in the past - but to make it some kind of independence day with cowboys is a really really bad execution.

    :hehe: I'm with Fod on this one, it looks rubbish but it could easily be quite entertaining.
