I'm not terribly surprised. Westerns aren't a safe bet any more and this particular project's been in development hell for years (or so is my understanding).

Honestly though, I have to wonder whether it's fair to draw the implied inferences from Cowboys and Aliens's box office. Is it a failure because it's a Western, or a failure because it's a Western with aliens? Western genre hybrids do tend to be really bad flops (see Jonah Hex, The Warrior's Way) and with True Grit fresh in the memory (and Tarantino working on a Western) there's a chance it could have at least ridden on momentum.

New trailer:

More Leone references in this one!
I don't think it's going to be great, but it could be more Rango than Pirates...

The trailers actually don't look bad. Of course it's easy enough to make a decent trailer.

If memory serves, you're the fellow who gave The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor a 9/10. Bah yourself.

That was very entertaining kiddie stuff,  though I remember next to nothing about it. It's like going to Disneyland and being entertained by the gimmicks: they rate probably 10\10 but they're still kiddie stuff. Tarantino's Django I rated less than The Mummy, but it is not kiddie stuff. And I will probably remember more about it than the one I rated more.
