Summary: When she could, Irene stroked the walls, the posts, murmuring “Shhh, shhh, it's okay” to the wood like it was a baby. Feeling a little foolish, because why would the house believe her words, when she was as torn up inside as anybody?

Amazon.de will be offering an exclusive tin box blu-ray edition of the movie complete with graphic novel (presumably in German) and lighter (so you'll always be able to safely blow up alien lairs). It's released on January 13.

It certainly looks pretty.

I know we're (mostly) fans of the film here, but this statement from Universal Pictures' President Ron Meyer is quite interesting, if only for its bald-faced negativity:

"Cowboys & Aliens wasn’t good enough. Forget all the smart people involved in it, it wasn’t good enough. All those little creatures bouncing around were crappy. I think it was a mediocre movie, and we all did a mediocre job with it... Cowboys & Aliens didn’t deserve better... Cowboys & Aliens was a big loss... We misfired. We were wrong. We did it badly, and I think we’re all guilty of it. I have to take first responsibility because I’m part of it, but we all did a mediocre job and we paid the price for it. It happens. They’re talented people. Certainly you couldn’t have more talented people involved in Cowboys & Aliens, but it took, you know, ten smart and talented people to come up with a mediocre movie. It just happens.”

Clearly C&A had some problems, and did not make a killing at the box office (it has made more than its budget, but that may not take into account promotional costs, and of course a lot of that money goes to individual theaters). However with the DVD coming out in a few weeks, and the film still at theaters worldwide it is a tad strange for someone with a financial stake in the movie to be so negative about it.

...uh, although he was possibly even more negative about Land of the Lost and The Wolfman. Poor Benicio del Toro.

I just found out about these...



Medicom will be producing 12-inch action figures of Jake Lonergan (Daniel Craig) and Woodrow Dolarhyde (Harrison Ford) from Cowboys & Aliens. The figures are due out in March 2012, and are likely to be quite pricey, but they do look fantastic. Click the link for more detailed pictures.

After 83 days, Cowboys & Aliens has finally crossed the $100 million mark at the US box office, making it one of only seven westerns to ever achieve that feat. It's currently made more than $167 million worldwide.

Cowboys & Aliens will be released on DVD and Blu-Ray on December 6 in the USA.

"Universal Studios Home Entertainment is including a new extended cut of the film exclusively on the Cowboys & Aliens Blu-ray and DVD combo pack release. The cut, which runs 2 hours and 16 minutes versus the 1 hour 59 minutes theatrical cut (also included), will not be on the standalone DVD release."

A bunch of special features, including Favreau's commentary track, are only on the Blu-Ray too. Woe.

Hear ye, hear ye... the voting for the Scream Awards is now open (no registration necessary).

Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford are both nominated for Best Science Fiction Actor, so get voting!

Incidentally, Olivia Wilde is up for Best Science Fiction Actress, but for TRON: Legacy, not C&A.
