"Cowboys & Aliens" Wins Trailer of the Week Amid a Heavy Field



    Color us giddy. The first clip from "Cowboys & Aliens" is here and we couldn't be much happier.

    Daniel Craig awakens in the desert with some weird "Space Ghost"-esque weapon strapped to his wrist. Olivia Wilde is the insanely hot chick in the saloon. Harrison Ford chews scenery as a nasty old sheriff. And spaceships shooting lasers come swooping out of the sky! Give us another 120 minutes of that -- stat.

    "The Mechanic"

    Jason Statham takes on a role made famous by Charles Bronson in this remake of the 1972 actioner about an elite hitman who takes his dead mentor's son, played by Ben Foster, under his wing. We smell betrayal brewing. "The Mechanic" opens for business May 20, 2011.

    Directed by Jon Favreau, produced by Ron Howard, Brain Grazer and Steven Spielberg and with a script by Damon Lindelof, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, and you've got pedigree for days on this adaptation of the beloved 2006 comic book.

    There's been a pantload of new trailers out over the past 48 hours -- "Green Lantern," "Red Riding Hood," "The Mechanic," "Cars 2" and "Winnie the Pooh," among others -- and none has us more stoked than "C&A." And not because it's a Universal picture, we swear.

    "Cowboys & Aliens" arrives July 29, 2011.

    "Green Lantern"

    [NATL] "Green Lantern"
