Picture from Cowboys and Aliens


It appears visitors from other worlds have been abducting humans for longer than we might have thought. Set in 1873, Cowboys and Aliens chronicles the close encounters of a Wild West rancher (Harrison Ford) and a cowboy who can't remember the past (Daniel Craig). (Olivia Wilde plays the love interest.) Hey-- Don't laugh! This script takes itself very seriously.

MPAA Rating PG-13 for intense sequences of western and sci-fi action and violence, some partial nudity and a brief crude reference.
