#16: COWBOYS & ALIENS
Director: Jon Favreau
Stars: Daniel Craig, Olivia Wilde, Harrison Ford, Sam Rockwell, Noah Ringer, Paul Dano, Ana de la Reguera, Walton Goggins
Release Date: July 29
Why we’re excited: Mixing two genres we love (Westerns and science fiction), Jon Favreau’s adaptation of Platinum Studios’ 2006 graphic novel Cowboys & Aliens has a lot going for it. For starters, you’ve got balls-to-the-wall chaos caused by space baddies and gunslingers, one of whom just happens to be Harrison Ford channeling his true Indiana Jones grit. Secondly, our current crush Olivia Wilde is on board, alongside Eastbound & Down’s ass-tounding Ana de la Reguera. And then there’s that title, which is the best to-the-point moniker since Snakes on a Plane. It practically sells itself.
