New trailers: Cowboys, aliens, cars and more

Some major league talent is involved in "Cowboys & Aliens." Not only is it based on a 2006 graphic novel whose title alone is begging for a film adaptation, it's directed by "Iron Man's" Jon Favreau and produced by Ron Howard and Steven Spielberg. And if that's not enough, it stars Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford.

The first half of the trailer, released earlier this week, plays like a Western, but then - you guessed it - the aliens arrive, mostly confusing and frightening everyone, except for Craig, who seems to be able to communicate with them, or even fight them off with a device on his wrist. Whether this is the next "Men in Black" or "Wild Wild West" is anyone's guess. The movie comes out July 29, 2011.

If that's not enough aliens for you, there's also the trailer for "Battle: Los Angeles," out in March. Similar to the recent release "Skyline" (with a bigger budget), this one plays more like an urban war movie. Comparisons will almost certainly be made to "Starship Troopers" as well, though this one is set in the present day. It stars "The Dark Knight's" Aaron Eckhart and "Avatar's" Michelle Rodriguez.

Finally, after the blockbuster success of "Toy Story 3," you just knew there were other Pixar sequels on the horizon, and the next is "Cars 2." This time, Owen Wilson and Larry the Cable Guy's automotive altar egos are off on an adventure filled with international intrigue. If any movie mentioned in this blog post is destined to be a smash hit, this is it. It arrives on June 24, 2011.

    I do consider all the ideas you have introduced to your post. They are very convincing and will certainly work. Nonetheless, the posts are very short for starters. May you please lengthen them a bit from next time? Thank you for the post.

    Seriously- a cell phone add? I saw the trailer and thought that this movie looks amazing. Daniel Craig is a fantastic actor and paired with Harrison Ford and the directing of Favreau this film is sure to be a blockbuster. My prediction is that it does very well at the box office, as well as being a definitive film for it's genre.

    I saw the trailer for Cowboys & Aliens last night – I thought it was one of those joke movies they set up to scold the audience about cell phone usage...
