First Look: Daniel Craig in Jon Favreau's 'Cowboys and Aliens'
Only four weeks into production, the film made an impressive debut at Comic-Con
Daniel Craig may not have a James Bond film hitting theaters anytime soon, but he's still going to be a gunslinger next year. Craig is starring alongside Harrison Ford and Olivia Wilde in Jon Favreau's "Cowboys and Aliens" which made a big impression at an end of day panel at Comic-Con 2010 today in San Diego.
Only four weeks into production, Favreau stunned the crowd by showing an extended sequence from the film that showed the tone of a realistic Old Western mixed with the contrast of a surprise alien attack flick. Proving this genre mix wouldn't be going down the disappointing road of Will Smith's "Wild Wild West," Universal and DreamWorks Studios released the first official still from the picture and it's also from the same scene previewed to the fans in attendance.
As for currently "on hold" Bond, Craig told the packed Comic-Con Hall H audience, "All I can say is that I just want to get going on it as quickly as possible."
"Cowboys and Aliens" opens nationwide on July 29, 2011.
Look for more commentary on "Cowboys and Aliens" from HitFix's Drew McWeeny later on HitFix.
