It's the Old West, circa the early 1870s. So what are spaceships full of aliens doing in the Arizona territory?
They're after gold. But with Harrison Ford and Daniel Craig leading the woefully outgunned cowboys, you know those aliens are going to get more than they bargained for. And it's more likely to be measured in caliber than karats.

Too often investors think they can strike it rich with one good investment, says Jill Gianola, CFP and author of "The Young Couple's Guide to Growing Rich Together." There are two main problems with the get-rich-with-one-investment approach.
