Premiering at the Spike Guy’s Choice Awards last week, the newly released extended look at Iron Man director Jon Favreau’s upcoming sci-fi/western; Cowboys and Aliens; (which can now be seen below), once again offers much of the same footage we’ve all seen before, while also presenting a few extra effects laden scenes, and some which give the story a bit more depth.

Following an amnesiac cowboy named Jake Lonergan (Daniel Craig, Casino Royale); who wakes up in the desert with a strange device strapped to his wrist; Cowboys and Aliens has been adapted from the graphic novel of the same name, and showcases just what happens when aliens try to invade the small town of Absolution, and kidnap its residents (the cowboys posse up and go on the attack).

Also starring Harrison Ford (The fugitive), Keith Carradine (Dexter), Sam Rockwell (Moon), Olivia Wilde (Tron: Legacy), Walton Goggins (Justified), Abigail Spencer (Angela’s Eyes), and Clancy Brown (Highlander), Cowboys and Aliens is due to be released in the US on July 29th, but won’t receive a UK release date until August 19th.
