In this exclusive behind the scenes clip from Cowboys & Aliens, watch John Wayne's grandson cower before the very difficult task of being thrown into the sky off a horse! Thank goodness Olivia Wilde was there.
Hollywood has been pumping out a prodigious amount of movies about aliens in recent years, and the public has been eating them up. But just why is it that we can't get enough of extraterrestrial life?
Summer science fiction movies are about spectacle. Gods channel lightning; robots deconstruct themselves in gleaming slivers of computer-generated light. All most of us really want when we plunk down our money for these blockbusters is to see something giant and fantastic that we've never seen before.
Long ago, Cowboys & Aliens director Jon Favreau was slated to direct his own John Carter of Mars movie adaptation. Alas, the project was damned to development purgatory.
Daniel Craig is just like us, in some ways. He can't sit next to Harrison Ford with a blaster without making Star Wars jokes.
Play this trailer for Shark Night 3-D on top volume. At about 0:57, put your ear next to your PC speaker for about a minute. Congratulations! You are now deaf in one ear! (Note: Don't really do that.)
We've got a giant heaping of Cowboys & Aliens stills for you fine cowpoke. Watch as "Cantankerous Land Owner" Harrison Ford steely-eyes the shit out of "The Man With The Black Hat," Daniel Craig.

It happens almost every year: a movie comes out with a big budget and hot talent attached to it... and it fizzles horribly. Case in point: Speed Racer had a reported $120 million budget and made only $44 million domestically.
Every summer, there's at least one movie underdog that takes audiences by storm. A movie that doesn't belong to an established series or feature a fan-favorite character, but still wins us over. A hit original amongst sequels and reboots.
Could this be the biggest movie summer of all time? It's sure looking like it. Almost every weekend features at least one, and maybe two or three, movies with a science fiction, fantasy or comics pedigree.
Reach for the alien-infested sky! Jon Favreau has released a brand new Cowboys & Aliens trailer showcasing a healthy amount of dialogue from the cast, including Sam Rockwell! Can this genre mash-up movie really be all things to all people?
Earlier this week we saw the aliens from Cowboys & Aliens first hand at WonderCon. The one thing that stuck out wasn't the spoilery alien reveal, but the religious banter between the cowboys. How much of Jon Favreau's film is going to challenge people's faith?
Jon Favreau and Roberto Orci were on hand to debut about nine minutes of brand new Cowboys and Aliens footage, including the big alien money shot. So what did they look like, read our description now!

Earlier this year, we spent one hot summer day at New Mexico's infamous Plaza Blanca landscape watching Jon Favreau, Harrison Ford, and Daniel Craig make their alien abduction Western mash-up. Here's what we learned. Plus two new behind-the-scenes images!
