'Cowboys & Aliens' Image

Coming out of SDCC, this is the first image of Daniel Craig from 'Cowboys & Aliens' directed by Jon Favreau.

Not what I had hoped for. I'm wondering what kind of response this got. Just seems wrong -- in a way that's hard to articulate. I guess Craig just doesn't look that 'cowboyish', and, I'm sorry, but that hat does not fit.

Also, is that really the aspect ratio? Ooph -- should be wider. I suppose Favreau wanted that old-timey westerns look from the 40s and 50s before super-wide ratios were the in thing and a lot of the genre only appeared on TV. But, for a popcorn flick this is too square a frame.

I shouldn't complain -- just assumed I'd be blown away. Still. Should be good. Waiting for more.
