Produced with a budget of around 2.5 million, 'Oblivion' came with the tagline: "On this planet, it's Cowboys and Aliens", which is comical, of course, because in 2011 we actually have a film coming out called 'Cowboys & Aliens'. Based on the trailer (and the time we spent on set), Jon Favreau's 'Cowboys & Aliens' is definitely not as cheesy and comical as this mid-90s version of Cowboys & Aliens, but credit must be given to 'Oblivion' director Sam Irvin, who actually managed to make a sequel called 'Oblivion 2: Backlash'. So far, the same cannot be said for Favreau's 'Cowboys & Aliens', but we have a while until those decisions are made.
Check out both trailers after the jump, and let us know which 'Cowboys & Aliens' movie you'd rather see. Also keep in mind that 'Oblivion' is not to be confused with the ongoing graphic novel adaptation of another 'Oblivion', which is being headed by 'TRON: Legacy's Joseph Kosinski.
'Oblivion' is available to rent on Netflix, and 'Cowboys & Aliens' hits theaters on July 29th.
