The summer movie combing the good old western with the iconic sci-fi alien attack, "Cowboys & Aliens," is due in theatres on July 29. And while we'll be seeing several new movie promos during Sunday's (Feb. 6) Super Bowl game, the producers are hoping their 30-second promo will rope in viewers.

"You're going to see from the Super Bowl spots, this summer there are going to be a lot of superhero movies, a lot of sequels, many of which I want to see, but this is going to be one of the few truly original franchises out there," Writer/producer Roberto Orci tells MTV. "We couldn't believe the people we got in front of the camera and behind. We've got Ron Howard, Brian Grazer, Steven Spielberg producing, we've got Jon Favreau directing the thing, and even outside of Harrison Ford, it's Paul Dano, it's Sam Rockwell."

He adds, "You don't even see them all in 30 seconds -- we don't have enough time -- so hopefully it will leave you wanting more."
