The trailers for Cowboys & Aliens (catch them here if you’re off the pace) look like a splendid blend of serious western growling and sure-footed sci-fi action. These latest posters are aiming for a similar mash-up, though the now-typical-but-still-massively-annoying photo-shopping robs them of some of their impact. Daniel Craig seems to have a bit of that “early scenes of Captain America my body isn’t as big as it should be” thing going on and Harrison Ford looks like one side of his face has been grafted on from someone else entirely.
Hey ho. To be frank, I am so very excited about this film, a little bit of a mishandling of a poster isn’t going to do anything to blunt my enthusiasm. Whether we’ll need to enforce the Trade Descriptions Act over the seeming size of that ship overhead, or whether it’s a forced-perspective thing, who can say? It may all be a little po-faced, but it’s still got me pretty excited. Hope you feel the same.
