If you’re anything like we are at FILMCLUB, then you’ll often lay awake at night wondering just who would win in a fight between a town full of cowboys and an alien invasion fleet. Well wonder no more, because Cowboys & Aliens mashes two classic genres together in order to answer that age-old question! A nameless bandit (Daniel Craig) wakes up in the desert with a strange, glowing gauntlet on his wrist and no recollection of how he got there. Recognising him as a wanted criminal, the locals, led by Colonel Dolarhyde (Harrison Ford), arrest him, but it soon becomes clear that this outlaw and his bracelet maybe the only ones capable of saving the Old West from a very new menace…
