Captain America, Cowboys and Aliens launch CineEurope

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: With weeks to go before American audiences get a good look at either “Captain America: First Avenger” or Jon Favreau’s “Cowboys & Aliens,” Paramount took exclusive footage from both movies across the pond to screen at CineEurope in Amsterdam.

The studio helped launch the 20th edition of the exhibitors conference by showing clips from the anticipated summer blockbusters, as well as a very early sneak peek at the animated Thanksgiving comedy “Puss in Boots,” THR reports.

Of note is the fact that Favreau reportedly allowed the CineEurope audiences to get their first look at the aliens from his upcoming blockbuster, which have been kept out of marketing materials to date (and wisely, I might add). In a video message attached to the “Cowboys & Aliens” footage, Favreau reportedly said his picture, which stars Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford as cowboys fending off extraterrestrials, will deliver “everything an audience is looking for in a summer blockbuster.”

As for “Puss,” Dreamworks co-founder Jeffrey Katzenberg reportedly screened 15 minutes of 3D footage before joining voice star Antonio Banderas for a Q-and-A session.

Other footage screened at CineEurope includes Martin Scorsese’s “Hugo Cabret” and Sacha Baron Cohen’s “The Dictator,” of which the comedian said his fictional country is now a major player in the film industry “thanks to our $2 billion film fund and to kidnapping James Cameron and his two children. We have already started production on several new movies including ‘You’ve got Mail Bomb’ and ‘Non-Consensual Sex In The City’.”
