Cowboys & Aliens Trailer to Debut on American Idol

Universal Pictures announced today that the full-length trailer for Cowboys & Aliens will debut during a commercial break of Fox’s "American Idol" on Thursday, April 14. The trailer will come online following the TV premiere.

Jon Favreau (Iron Man) directs Daniel Craig, Harrison Ford, Olivia Wilde, Sam Rockwell, Adam Beach, Paul Dano, Noah Ringer, Keith Carradine, Clancy Brown, Ana de la Reguera and Abigail Spencer in a film that crosses the classic Western with the alien-invasion movie in a blazingly original way.

Joined by an arsenal of top moviemakers — Steven Spielberg, Ron Howard, Brian Grazer, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci — Favreau brings an all-new action-thriller that will take audiences into the Old West, where a lone cowboy leads an uprising against a terror from beyond our world.

Cowboys & Aliens opens in theaters on July 29.
