'COWBOYS & ALIENS' Teaser Poster


Source: Yahoo! Movies

Directed by JON FAVREAU (IRON MAN 1 & 2) and set for release on July 29, 2011, ‘COWBOYS AND ALIENS’ stars; Daniel Craig, Harrison Ford, Olivia Wilde, Sam Rockwell, Adam Beach, Paul Dano and Noah Ringer.

plot synopsis: 1873. Arizona Territory. A stranger (Craig) with no memory of his past stumbles into the hard desert town of Absolution. The only hint to his history is a mysterious shackle that encircles one wrist. What he discovers is that the people of Absolution don’t welcome strangers, and nobody makes a move on its streets unless ordered to do so by the iron-fisted Colonel Dolarhyde (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 (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.

SPIDER-MAN Reboot Update: Villian Revealed – RHYS IFANS To Play THE LIZARD

October 14, 2010

RHYS IFANS


Source: TheWrap.com

Or should we say IFANS – who was just confirmed for the role of the villian a couple days ago – is playing the guy who turns into the Lizard. This wouldn’t be the first time producers involved with the franchise have flirted with having the Lizard as the principle foe in a SPIDER-MAN movie as THRALL WORLD posted late last year just before SONY decided to scrap everything and start over with a new creative team and cast.

No confirmation from SONY just yet but word on the street is that:

Rhys Ifans will play Dr. Curt Connors, better known as The Lizard, in Marc Webb’s “Spider-Man.”
