Universal pictures has released the second trailer for "Cowboys & Aliens," director Jon Favreau's adaptation of the Platinum Studios graphic novel.

The movie stars Daniel Craig as a stranger with no memory of his past who 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 (Harrison 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.

"Cowboys & Aliens," which will be released on July 29, 2011, features Daniel Craig as Jake Lonergan, Harrison Ford as Colonel Dolarhyde, Olivia Wilde as Ella and Sam Rockwell as Doc with a screenplay by Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci and Damon Lindelof.
