Check out the first poster for next summer's fantasy western COWBOYS AND ALIENS
. Starring Harrison Ford
, Daniel Craig
, Sam Rockwell
, Olivia Wilde
, Jon Favreau
and Keith Carradine
, the film follows a stranger (David Craig
) who stumbles into a desert town called Absolution which doesn't welcome strangers, and nobody makes a move on
its streets unless ordered to do so by the iron-fisted Colonel Dolarhyde (Harrison Ford
). It's a town that lives in fear. But Absolution is about to experience fear it can scarcely comprehend as the desolate city is attacked by marauders from the sky. Screaming down with breathtaking velocity and blinding lights to abduct the helpless one by one, these monsters challenge everything the residents have ever known. Now, the stranger they rejected is their only hope for salvation. As this gunslinger slowly starts to remember who he is and where he's been, he realizes he holds a secret that could give the town a fighting chance against the alien force.
With the help of the elusive traveler Ella (Olivia Wilde
), he pulls together a posse comprised of former opponents-townsfolk, Dolarhyde and his boys, outlaws and Apache warriors-all in danger of annihilation. United against a common enemy, they will prepare for an epic showdown for survival.
And since we've mentioned Daniel Craig
, it's interesting that he might not be in a new JAMES BOND
film. Due to his busy schedule already filled with new projects, MGM is currently considering a replacement since they want to start production next year. The latest one to actively and loudly pursue the lead role is no one else but David Haye
, a famous boxer and a world heavyweight champion, who wants to become the first black JAMES BOND
. According to "MovieWeb" this is a similar situation with the one from this summer when Donald Glover
wanted to become the first black SPIDERMAN
, but he lost the role to Andrew Garfield
. I'm not sure about you, but somehow I think Haye as Bond would announce the total downfall of the whole franchise. No elegance, no acting skills, no dashing charms - he's just nowhere near 007.
Cowboys and Aliens does sound intriguing. Hard to remember Harrison is getting older and someone else has to be the hero. :(ReplyDelete
Thoughts in Progress
Cowboys and Aliens sounds cool with an awesome cast!ReplyDelete
So just keep Craig in Bond character then or find a more reliable new actor for the role.ReplyDelete
I think we have an agreement on that Cowboys Aliens poster ;)
oh, who knows, maybe Harrison will steal the show from Daniel :)
glad you like it, Kelly
oh, I could give you a whole list of actors who could be better Bond than Craig and this boxer together :)
ah Craig is perfect as Bond, just keep him! We don't need any cute actor who can only sell their face or body but no strong character at all. I even thought why not let Sir Sean Connery back to the series since it will be so much unique and fresh watching Bond's action in his old days :))ReplyDelete
the plot of cowboys and aliens sounds very cool, and the images are very cool, but the name leaves something to be desired.ReplyDelete
i'm not a bond fan at all, but i understand that bond is a big deal. you'd think they'd want a proven actor for such a big role. ethnicity shouldn't matter, but acting skills should.
A black James Bond doesn't bother me but I want whoever they chose to be a good actor and above all sigh-worthy.ReplyDelete
okay cowboys vs. aliens, you got my attention.ReplyDelete
Donald Glover is Peter Parker.
wow, supercool stuff! Cowboys & aliens... hmmm. And a black 007? Would he still be 007 or would he be like 008 or 9? Just curious~ReplyDelete
This looks more like it's from the director of Iron Man 2.ReplyDelete
Cowboys and Aliens sounds ridiculous in a fun and interesting way.ReplyDelete
A black James Bond is just plain ridiculous. Why not just create a new black secret agent franchise? James Bond has a long and revered history. Do we need to change history?
Tossing It Out
i'm with you. If we can't have Daniel Craig play James Bond, let's at least find someone with some class and, you know, acting skillsReplyDelete
Well, here's my opinion: David Haye looks like a boxer.ReplyDelete
Any questions about what James Bond should look like, please see the movies and also read the books.
As a lifelong Bond fan, I say a black 007 might be worth trying, as long as he's English....ReplyDelete
I dunno. It could work.
That could give you an excuse for another poll, Dez...which black actor would make the best JB?ReplyDelete
I'm more curious about Harrison Ford's involvement in this. It'd be great if he plays the alien :DReplyDelete
Cowboys and Aliens sounds cool. I'm not sure about Haye. I could see a black Bond, but I'll have to reserve judgment for now.ReplyDelete
oh, I like the idea of Connery returning to Bond! :)
I must admit I agree with you on the bit weak tittle of the movie.
that's exactly my point as well :)
glad I got your attention ;)
not sure which number he's gonna get :)
I'm kinda with you on this, Lee. I don't see the need to change the history.
ah, yes, I might do a poll on possible James Bonds :) with class and acting skills.
just tell them girl :)
it could work only if he is a good actor :)
yep, I might do a poll on 007 but on possible actors, not just the black ones :)
I reckon his wify Calista should play an alien she looks like one /chucklesnaughtily/
yep, we need a talented guy no matter what the colour of his skin is.
Cowboys and Aliens sounds cool. I hope they inject a little bit of humour into it as well.ReplyDelete
well, Lyndylove, with an already ridiculous plot, I'm guessing it must be humorous as well :PReplyDelete
At a point in time, Diddy expressed interest about being James Bond! Can you imagine?!! haha! In comparison, David Haye isn't a bad choice at all. A black 007 isn't ridiculous at all. As long as, to Clarisa's point, they choose a good actor for the part. Michael Clarke Duncan as Kingpin worked very well.ReplyDelete
Have wonders about the movie....
You had me at Daniel Craig! I'd watch him grout tile.ReplyDelete
Is it just me or the poster for cowboys and aliens looks just like the one for Brokeback Mountain?ReplyDelete
Wow, Aliens n' Cowboys, not that is thinking outside the box. Funny, I saw a movie tonight cowboys n' zombies, lol~ReplyDelete
Bond must be Scottish, British or Irish and be charming, that is all I ask. His color, height, doesn't matter to me. He has to have charisma!
I'm thinking...who can fill those shoes~
Daniel Craig. He's the best Bond ever. IMHO.ReplyDelete
ah, Diddy is sometimes full of weird, and one might say self-centred ideas :) Although, Diddy Bond doesn't sound all that bad :) He does know how to wear a suit, but maybe the naughty Kanye West would fit the role better :)
yes, Avalon, there will be NATIVE AMERICANS in the film :))
oh, glad Craig got you excited, Liz ;P
well, the brokeback guys didn't have a sf bracelet around their arm :)
and who won, zombies or cowboys? :))And there will be a poll this year in HOLLYWOOD SPY on possible Bond actors :)
hey, Sam, welcome to HOLLYWOOD SPY. Hope we will be seeing you here often :)
richard armitage for bondReplyDelete
no need to be anonymous when you're sharing the love for Armitage :)ReplyDelete
You naughty boy you... but she really should eat some Big Macs once in a while :)ReplyDelete
:))) well, I'm just telling the obvious truth :)ReplyDelete
JAMES BOND YES! SHOULD HE BE BLACK? NO. WHY NOT MAKE A MARTIN LUTHER KING MOVIE AND HAVE A WHITE MAN PLAY HIM? NO. LEAVE THINGS THE WHY ARE. IF SOMEONE MADE A BLACK PANTHER MOVIE (MARVELS CAT PRINCE) HE SHOULDN'T BE WHITE, HOLLYWOOD IS SO $ THEY CANT THINK STRAIGHT ABOUT WHAT IS BEST FOR THE STORY LINE. IM SICK OF ALL HOLLYWOOD AND ITS HEADING SOUTH IN A HAND BASKET.ReplyDelete
