Pop Quiz: Which of These Movie Trailers Looks Great?

The Daniel Craig vehicle Cowboys and Aliens and the Twilight wannabe Red Riding Hood both released trailers today. Guess which one looks awesome?

Good news first: Cowboys and Aliens, the new film from Iron Man director Jon Favreau, released its first trailer today. While the title may seem exceptionally ridiculous, the trailer released today promises a pretty kickass movie-going experience. Now the bad news: Red Riding Hood also released a trailer. The film is the newest from Cathrine Hardwicke, director of the first Twilight movie. Note that she was actually fired from the first Twilight movie, presumably for good reason.

Cowboys was scripted by Damen Lindelof (Lost), Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci (both of the recent Star Trek reboot), and will feature Daniel Craig (James Bond in his recent incarnation), Harrison Ford, and Olivia Wilde (Tron: Legacy). The title appears to be pretty descriptive, but the amnesiac-based mystery hinted at in the trailer looks promising.

Less promising is Red Riding Hood, which appears to have lifted its filming locations, casting archetypes, and score right from its more famous vampiric predecessor. The film will feature Gary Oldman (The Dark Knight, Harry Potter, The Fifth Element) and Virginia Madsen (Dune, Sideways, A Prairie Home Companion), who are apparently both strapped for cash.

Cowboys and Aliens comes out July 29, 2011, and Red Riding Hood will hit theatres a few months earlier, on March 11. (I know y’all want to be first in line for that midnight showing.)
