Jon Favreau’s “Cowboys & Aliens” hog-ties a teaser poster
By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Earlier this morning, we brought you the first teaser poster for the fourth “Pirates of the Caribbean” film, titled, “At World’s End.”
But that’s not the only poster going up at area multiplexes.
You’re also bound to see this teaser poster for Jon Favreau’s anticipated “Cowboys & Aliens,” which Yahoo Movies debut this morning. We’ve posted it below.
It’s tough to beat the cover of Scott Mitchell Rosenberg’s 2006 graphic novel, which had a cowboy riding a horse and looking up at a spaceship. Those two things just don’t go together, and the dichotomy forced you to pick up the book and read.
This poster, too, tries to blend the Old West with modern technology. I like it. It reminds me of Clint Eastwood’s “Unforgiven” poster, with a touch if “Iron Man” (which, of course, Favreau directed).
