FEARnet's Joe McCabe saddles up for the world premiere of Cowboys & Aliens at Comic-Con 2011 in San Diego, and chats with star Keith Carradine, writer Roberto Orci, visual effects supervisor Marc Chu, and creator Scott Mitchell Rosenberg. In theaters on July 29, 2011.1873. 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.
