International poster for COWBOYS & ALIENS is shrouded in mystery…literally

Most posters for big blockbuster action films put the star front a center, bust or head floating in a blue or red green glow with a bunch of actiony, blockbustery icons in the background. And then 20 more posters almost exactly like it come out once a week until the film's release. Exhibit A being the multitude of posters for Jon Favreau's IRON MAN 2. But it looks like the design team behind the posters for Favreau's new film, COWBOYS & ALIENS, went with quite the opposite style.

Star Daniel Craig stands ominous, bathed in shadows, six shooter in one hand and Nintendo Powerglove on steroids in the other. But it wouldn't be a modern day movie poster without the warmth of the bluish, greenish glow.

Check out the international poster for the film after the break!

I couldn't help but think about Indiana Jones when seeing Craig's silhouette, fedora-shaped cowboy hat and all, right underneath Harrison Ford's name on the poster.
