Well, the time has finally come. A year ago we first learned about the film Cowboys and Aliens at the 2010 San Diego Comic Con. Tomorrow it’s going to premiere.
I’m fully braced for this film to completely suck, given Hollywood’s predisposition for making atrocious Steampunk movies. But glimmers of hope still do peak through… Harrison Ford very rarely makes a bad movie, and, perhaps they’ve learned their lesson after the considerable success of the recent Sherlock Holmes film with Robert Downey Jr. In case you’ve been living under a rock (or don’t have a TV like myself) here’s the trailer for Cowboys and Aliens.
For better or for worse, I’m planning to see this sometime over the weekend. If I can wrap my brain around the idea, I may post a review. I sincerely do hope that it’s going to be good, however. Last year’s summer Steampunk film, Jonah Hex, was just terrible.
