Keith Carradine as Sheriff Taggart. Sam Rockwell as Doc. Daniel Craig as Jake Lonergan. Reviews Where the deer and the bug-eyed monsters play. Roger Ebert July 27, Now streaming on:. Powered by JustWatch. Note: Oh, blessed joy! The movie is in glorious 2-D.
After the graphic novel was published in , development on the film was begun again, and Favreau signed on as director in September Despite studio pressure to release the film in 3-D, Favreau chose to film traditionally and in anamorphic format widescreen picture on standard 35 mm film to further a "classic movie feel".
Measures were taken to maintain a serious Western element despite the film's "inherently comic" title and premise. The film's aliens were designed to be "cool and captivating", with some details, such as a fungus that grows on their wounds, created to depict the creatures as frontiersmen facing adversity in an unfamiliar place.

When approached with the idea by DreamWorks, Favreau was not interested, stating that Westerns should be shot only on film as opposed to being shot digitally, which is required for modern 3D technology ,  and didn't want it to be converted after filming.
A scene in which Craig's character rides a horse alongside a ravine and jumps down it onto a spacecraft emulated many scenes in American Western films where cowboys rode along a moving train and jumped on it. Favreau said the scene referenced the one in the film Raiders of the Lost Ark where Indiana Jones chases a truck and noted that a similar scene existed in the film Stagecoach , saying "We're constantly referencing back to our roots.
Scott Chambliss was hired as the production designer based on his work on Star Trek , produced by Orci and Kurtzman. Under the supervision of Shane Mahan,  Legacy Effects created practical puppet aliens and full scale alien speeders. New Deal Studios constructed a miniature of the paddle steamer that is seen upturned in the film.
Kerner Optical built a miniature of the alien ship and bluescreen stand-ins. And it was a real unveiling of the creature, little by little, and using lighting and camera work and music to make it a very subjective experience. And so we tried to preserve that here. The trick was to make [the aliens] interesting through their behavior and what happens to them, and that was something that District 9 did very well.
You were drawn into their world a bit and their idiosyncrasies had an immediate impact: they ate cat food. But those details overwhelm certain design aspects, so I was striving to find some behavior that fit in well with the Western genre, where you have people in very arduous conditions fighting the elements.
And I thought that the irony of all this was that the aliens turn up and it could be more exaggerated for them. They're frontiersmen in a way: traveling to another place and having to deal with all the adversities of the climate.
And in our case, we played up the fact that they weren't comfortable in our world. There are flies all around them; they don't like the light; and when they were wounded and exposed, a strange fungus grows around them. The use of anamorphic widescreen rather than shooting full-frame "flat" and cropping later gave ILM no extra room to re-frame shots; it was a challenge to show both nine-foot-tall aliens and smaller humans in the same space. Instead, Guyett said, they shot more areas in case portions of the shots were lost.
In filming the gun battle between the cowboys and aliens, in which the aliens move at twice the speed of the humans, actors were required to ride through the scene on horseback and shoot at men in gray suits and three-foot-tall hats; they aimed at faces drawn by Jon Favreau on the top of the hats.
A big challenge for ILM's texture artists was to show the aliens in both a dark cave environment and harsh sunlight. The creatures were rendered in high resolution for close-ups; dirt and wounds were added to the aliens to emphasize the injuries they sustained in battle. After Favreau requested that the aliens experience a very unpleasant biological reaction to being wounded on Earth, the texture team created a yellow fungus-like look on the scars of the aliens. To design the fungus, texture supervisor Martin Murphy searched the Internet for real pictures of mold and growth on trees and eventually designed a "fried egg pattern".
It's almost like glass or ice or gelatiny surface that blends into a dryer area. The [ sic ] there's pieces of him that are more like a soft-shell crab or shiny and wet. In addition to the aliens, other visual effects were required for the speeders, the alien spaceship, its interior, environment re-creations, and the head-up display for Jake's arm gauntlet.
For the invasion of the town of Absolution, both practical laser lighting and fire effects were utilized, along with practical ships and effects enhancements.
For a scene in which Jake and Ella ride on a speeder, the actors were filming on a practical mock-up against bluescreen; they were digitally replaced in wider shots. He said, "It was very well laid out, well planned, and there were a lot of discussions with a lot of actors who called me to task on things that seemed too convenient, so we made sure we earned each step.
If you do it right, it honors both, and it becomes interesting and clever and a reinvention of two things that people understand the conventions of, instead of just a retread or remake or sequel or reboot of a film you've seen before.
In the Americas, Native American nations were severely damaged by European settlers, specifically because of the Europeans' advanced military technology. Favreau compared the film to the historical confrontation "in the frustration of not having the technology to allow you to prevail. It's always the low-tech culture that feels powerless when faced with an enemy that has technology on their side. Favreau also said of the premise, "It allows the cowboys and Native Americans to come together, which would be impossible had there not been a greater common enemy.
