"I'm already doing a commentary track on a movie that I'm in the middle of the director's cut," laughed Jon Favreau. One of the most popular trailers of last week was easily Cowboys & Aliens, the badass new comic book movie starring Daniel Craig, Harrison Ford and Olivia Wilde, among others. MTV asked director Jon Favreau to record a commentary track for the trailer, talking about certain scenes and what it shows, what it doesn't show, and so much more to get you hyped up for this awesome action western next summer. In additional videos on MTV, Favreau also talks about casting and much more. Definitely can't wait for this!
Craig plays Jake Lonergan, a stranger with no memory of his past who stumbles into the hard desert town of Absolution. But the town is soon invaded by aliens and Jake must pull together a posse comprised of former opponents to combat these extraterrestrials. In addition to Daniel Craig, Cowboys & Aliens also stars Olivia Wilde, Sam Rockwell, Noah Ringer, Clancy Brown and the legendary Harrison Ford as Col. Dolarhyde. Jon Favreau is directing this adaptation from a screenplay co-written by Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci & Damon Lindelof. Universal is bringing Cowboys & Aliens in only 2D to theaters on July 29th, 2011 next summer.
