Jon Favreau's Cowboys and Aliens gets a poster.

Obviously, this is as much of a tease as the Pirates of the Caribbean 4 poster. We can assume that the mysterious gunslinger is Daniel Craig. Apparently directing Iron Man is enough to get you a credit on the poster, but not enough to have your name on said poster. The big question marks for this one are A) how will one of the biggest 2D-only films fare in summer 2011 amidst a flurry of 3D and IMAX blockbusters, B) can Jon Favreau prove that Iron Man 2 was more Marvel's fault that his own, and C) how will Harrison Ford fare in basically playing the 'Kris Kristofferson role'. The last one is of most interest to me. Colorful supporting turns like this is exactly how Ford should be spending the last act of his fabled career. And, most amazingly, I'm pretty sure this is his first western since The Frisco Kid with Gene Wilder back in 1979. We'll apparently see a teaser trailer on Wednesday. I'm guessing that in the run-up to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part I, we will likely be a deluge of geek-friendly trailers (Green Lantern, Cowboys and Aliens, etc).
