Daniel Craig has nothing but praise for his "Cowboys & Aliens" co-star, Indiana Jones himself, Harrison Ford.
"I'm a huge fan of his and have been and I remain so," Craig, 43, told OnTheRedCarpet.com host Rachel Smith at the Comic-Con International 2011. "He's a lovely man, very funny and is sort of bigger-than-life than he is really on screen."
Harrison Ford was reunited with his "Star Wars" co-star Chewbacca during his appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" on Wednesday, however the meeting was not as harmonious as the on-screen friendship between their two characters once was.

Olivia Wilde says potential viewers of her new film "Cowboys & Aliens" can expect "something really original and unpredictable."

Jon Favreau plans to debut "Cowboys & Aliens" at Comic-Con next week and to promote the sci-fi western, the director did a series of hilariously candid interviews with his star-studded cast.

Harrison Ford and Daniel Craig take the focus back from Olivia Wilde in the new trailer for the Universal Studios science fiction western, "Cowboys & Aliens," which was released on Friday.
The trailer still features a nude Wilde, but Ford and Craig demonstrate their star power in the third trailer for the film, which is slated for a July 29 release. Executive producer Steven Spielberg recently told OnTheRedCarpet.com that science fiction has replaced westerns as the "new identity of Hollywood," but the action flick appears to successfully combine the two genres.

In the film, Jake Lonergan (Daniel Craig) wakes up with no memory of his past and a shackle around his wrist.

Alcon Entertainment, the production company behind "The Blind Side" and "The Book of Eli" are in final negations to purchase the rights to make a movie based on the 1982 film "Blade Runner."
The statement released by the company appears to imply that sequels and prequels to the sci-fi film could be developed by the company in the near future, rather than an outright remake.
Harrison Ford has denied a recent online rumor that said he wants his famed Indiana Jones character to be killed off in the next sequel.
The 68-year-old actor has, however, said in the past that he thinks his "Star Wars" character, Han Solo, should have died in the final film of the first trilogy, "Return of the Jedi".
