Making its way to DVD and Blu-ray shelves today, COWBOYS AND ALIENS is a genre-bending thriller that combines old school western adventure with high-tech space-age action. Based on a 2006 graphic novel by MEN IN BLACK creator SCOTT MITCHELL ROSENBERG, the story centers on the reactions of the residents of an 1875 Arizona town to an intergalactic attack. Produced by RON HOWARD and STEVEN SPIELBERG, directed by JON FAVREAU, the cast includes DANIEL CRAIG, HARRISON FORD, OLIVIA WILDE, PAUL DANO, ABIGAIL SPENCER, ADAM BEACH and SAM ROCKWELL.
Reportedly coaxed into taking the role by his old pal SPIELBERG, FORD is no stranger to larger-than-life action and appears to have a good time with it here. During an interview we did with the actor for the film’s original release, he talked about taking the job despite his original misgivings. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)
