Universal has released the theatrical trailer for the highly anticipated Cowboys & Aliens. The sci-fi western, based on the graphic novel, deals with an alien invasion that forces the opposing sides to come together in an effort to fight them off. The movie stars Daniel Craig, Harrison Ford, Olivia Wilde, and Sam Rockwell and is directed by Jon Favreau (Iron Man). Cowboys & Aliens is slated to release on July 29th.

Cowboys & Aliens starts in 1800s Arizona, where the local cowboys, headed by gunslinger Zeke Jackson (Daniel Craig), and the indigenous Apache tribe have been feuding fiercely for quite a while. Their skirmish is interrupted, however, by the appearance of a spaceship, commanded by an alien creature that’s bent on enslaving the human race. It’s time for a six-gun shoot-out between these cattle rustlers and space invaders, and there might even be a temporary peace between the cowboys and Indians as they both take aim at these extraterrestrial uninvited guests.
