OFFICIAL COWBOYS AND ALIENS SYNOPSIS

Image

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 (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.

An Eddie Murphy film that actually sounds promisnig:

A Thousand Words

synopsis: A blasé guy learns that he has only 1,000 words left to speak before he will die.

OK, yeah he'll probably f*ck it up, but it is intriging

I'm with you there -- a lot of possibilities for humor, and could make a great statement or two about gender roles (given that women are more often accused of being motor-mouthed); your conclusion, however, is sound. Hard to get anything worthwhile out of Eddie Murphy these days.

Good over under bet: How many times will they go to well with: Stub your toe and shout "Ow!", then catch yourself and say, "Oh Shit!", then catch that and say, "eeep!".... "God Damn it!"... etc etc.
I'd set it at 1.... but again... it's Eddie Murphy now, not then.

I assume that another reboot starring Garfield's replacement will be out by January 2012.

I seem to have missed that one. Fire my secretary.
(on a more serious note, I'm pleased to see Marvel Studios taking a more active role now that Sony is out of the loop. Maybe there's hope yet.)

:lol: It's a "relaunch" or a "reboot" of the movie and is 1) Whedonless and 2) will not follow any series continuity.

Whedon wrote the script for the first movie. The reboot won't have any of the characters from the series either.
