Cowboys & Aliens
DVD ($29.98)

Who better to square off against space invaders in the Old West than James Bond and Indiana Jones? Well, not exactly, but the actors who portrayed those two action-movie icons, Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford, join forces in this cross-genre dust-up based on a sci-fi comic romp about close encounters of the cowboy kind. And for anyone whose eyes might need a little respite from all the middle-age grizzle, Olivia Wilde displays ample charms as a mysterious frontier lovely hiding a whopping space-age secret. A bonus documentary goes behind the scenes of the story and reveals the combination of special effects and real stunts required to being the action-adventure to on-screen life.
