GUN-TOTING cowboys are locked in a battle with an enemy from the skies in the latest film to be shown in Clevedon.

Cowboys and Aliens (12A) is based in 1875, New Mexico territory, when a stranger (Daniel 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 do not welcome strangers and nobody makes a move on its streets unless ordered to do so by the iron-fisted Colonel Dolarhyde (Harrison Ford). It is 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 with breathtaking velocity and blinding lights to abduct helpless one by one, these monsters challenge everything the residents have ever known.

Now, the stranger they rejected is their only hope of salvation.

As this gun-slinger slowly starts to remember who he is and where he has been, he realises he holds a secret that could give the town a fighting chance against the alien force.

With the help of the elusive traveller Ella (Olivia Wilde), he pulls together a posse comprised of former opponents - town folk, 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 and Aliens will be shown at The Curzon Community Cinema in Old Church Road from Friday until September 8.
