TRAILER: Oblivion (1994) – Cowboys and Aliens Before it was Cool

If you think Daniel Craig’s and Harrison Ford’s upcoming Cowboys and Aliens is an original, think again. Back in 1994, Oblivion prominently featured cowboys and aliens. It featured Richard Joseph Paul, Meg Foster, Isaac Hayes, Julie Newmar,

And is that George Takei with the line, “Jim, beam me up” while holding a Jim Beam bottle? How did I ever miss this one? Oh…right…

This is the part where I’d normally include a synopsis, but really…does it matter?

  1. George Takei AND Isaac Hayes? Just went on my wish list.

     

  2. What a winner! Srsly, I’m not going to be able to sleep until I’ve seen this.

  3. I actually saw this way back when.

    I remember it fondly.  It wasn’t good, but it was bad in an entertaining way… and it definitely didn’t take itself seriously.

    There are worse ways to spend an evening than watching this.

  4. Not only is it not an original, but it’s not even theirs. Go to Facebook and search for “Cowboys and Aliens Screenplay” to find the original 1989 script.
