Cowboy & Aliens Movie Review By: CubicleMike

Cowboy & Aliens Movie Review By: CubicleMike I want to welcome CubicleMike to the mix over here at SandwichJohnFilms. The Cube will be doing reviews from time to time for the site.  Here's his first review for the site and let me tell you there are SPOILERS ! You have been Warned! The title holds so much promise; “ Cowboys and Aliens ”. Who in their right mind, if you are male, didn’t play Cowboys and Indians when they were a kid or imagined stopping an invading hoard of aliens? Let me start by saying the main character (Jake Lonergan) in this film was supposed to be played by Robert Downey Jr .; but he had to drop out due to scheduling conflicts, I guess we will never know what may have been. The film starts out panning across what seems like the Arizona or New Mexico wilderness where our hero has been dumped or fell to exhaustion. Amnesiac Daniel Craig (Jake Lonergan) wakes up with no shoes, blood on his shirt with no food, water or even a horse. I think Daniel Cr

Could Leonardo DiCaprio Star in "The Creed of Violence"

Westerns are continuing to have their moment in Hollywood, with this weekend's " Cowboys & Aliens " looking to pick up where last winter's breakout " True Grit " left off. Now another project is gathering heat. " The Creed of Violence , a western-flavored script based on the 2010 novel from cult author Boston Teran, has attracted the attention of Leonardo DiCaprio , who's eager to play one of the lead roles, according to a person who was briefed on the actor's plans but could not talk about it publicly because he was not authorized to speak for DiCaprio. DiCaprio has been offered a lead part but has not decided whether he will accept it yet, a source said. " Creed " tells the 1910-era story of a criminal named Rawbone who tries to take a cache of weapons into Mexico as part of the country's revolution but is caught and then accompanied by a government agent who, it turns out, shares a secret past with him. The movie has

Cowboys & Aliens Barely Top The Smurfs At The Box Office.

UPDATED: ' Cowboys ' grosses $36.4 million, while ' Smurfs ' earns $35.6 million. I'm sure  Favreau is re relieved  to hear this news. A race that riveted Hollywood into the early hours of Monday, Cowboy & Aliens has pulled ahead of dark horse The Smurfs to win the weekend box office race. On Sunday, Sony put Smurfs’ projected weekend at gross at $36.2 million—identical to the estimated gross of DreamWorks and Universal’s Cowboys. Both films dropped roughly 23% on Sunday, making the race impossible to call Sunday evening. Rival studios showed both films grossing roughly $35.6 million. But by midday Monday, Universal put Cowboys' opening at $36.4 million, compared to $35.6 million for Smurfs. Box office insiders said there was a problem with reporting for some AMC theaters, explaining why Cowboys' number can in higher than expected. While that’s a win for Jon Favreau’s Cowboys, Smurfs is still the big victor of the weekend. Heading into the

Cowboys & Aliens Will Premiere At Comic-Con 2011

It looks like “ Cowboys & Aliens ” To take over Comic-Con 2011. Filmmaker Jon Favreau had just walked off stage Sunday night after a sparkling “ Iron Man ” reunion at the Hero Complex Film Festival, but his thoughts were already on a far-bigger spotlight moment this summer — Comic-Con International in San Diego. “The worldwide premiere of ‘ Cowboys & Aliens ’ will be at Comic-Con,” the director said of his hard-edged sci-fi western that stars Daniel Craig, Harrison Ford, Olivia Wilde and Sam Rockwell “And not only are we going to premiere it there, we’re going to find a way to include as many of the fans as possible. I feel like they’ve come out for me, they’ve supported me.” UPDATE: Universal now says the premiere will be at the 2,967-seat San Diego Civic Theatre on July 23. The red carpet events begin at 7 p.m. with the film to follow an hour later. Ticket info will follow at the “ Cowboys & Aliens ” outlets on Facebook and Twitter The movie goes into wide

Olivia Wilde Joins Bradley Cooper In "The Words"

Tron Legacy’s Olivia Wilde might have gone back to her day job on US medical drama House recently, but she isn’t finished filling her schedule with film roles. She’s just joined the cast of plagiarism thriller The Words. Allegedly fluent French speaker Bradley Cooper is already attached to star in the story of a man who discovers that nicking another man’s work carries a higher price than he anticipated. And no, there’s no word on what that price might be, though we have yet to rule out killer robots from beyond the rim of the galaxy. Narnia’s Prince/King Caspian Ben Barnes has also signed on to the film alongside John Hannah and the ever-awesome JK Simmons . The cast already included the likes of J eremy Irons, Zoe Saldana and Dennis Quaid. Wilde, who’ll be seen this year in Cowboys & Aliens, The Change-Up and (assuming it comes out over here in 2011) Andrew Niccol’s sci-fi thriller In Time , already had an in with the film’s co-writer/directors, as Brian Klugman and L

New Cowboys & Aliens Trailer. WOW

This is one of the most anticipated film that will be coming out this Summer Cowboys & Aliens . Today Jon Favreau delivered the second trailer for the film.

Watch the trailer after the Jump... The Year is 1873. Arizona Territory. A stranger named Jake Lonergan (Daniel Craig) with no memory of his past stumbles into the hard desert town of Absolution. The only hint to his history is a mysterious shackle that encircles one wrist. What he discovers is that the people of Absolution don't welcome strangers, and nobody makes a move on its streets unless ordered to do so by the iron-fisted Colonel Dolarhyde (Harrison Ford). It's a town that lives in fear. But Absolution is about to experience

BOND 23 Set For 11/9/2012

Bond Is Back MGM is announcing that " BOND 23 " is set to go into production in late 2011 and today announced that the 23rd James Bond film will have a worldwide release on November 9, 2012 .  Daniel Craig will be returning as the legendary British secret agent, with Sam Mendes directing a screenplay written by Neal Purvis, Robert Wade and John Logan. That script is being kept under wraps but the story begins after Quantum Of Solace leaves off. The reason for the 007 delay is this: Broccoli and Wilson had been in pre-production on Bond #23 for release in 2011 but then it took almost a year for MGM's future to sort itself out what with the failed auction sale of the studio, then the pre-packaged bankruptcy getting approval, and eventually Spyglass taking over studio filmmaking. Meanwhile star Daniel Craig filled in the time with various film commitments which he had to finish. The actor began work on the Hollywood remake of the Swedish original The Girl With The Drag

Star Trek Screenwriters Talk About The Sequel

Sequel To Follow The lines Of “The Empire Strikes Back The 2009 reboot of “ Star Trek ” was a shining moment for fans of sci-fi and spectacle films and the sequel, due in 2012, may well follow the box-office trajectory of the Christopher Nolan Gotham City films — “Batman Begins” earned the credibility with fans old and new and then “The Dark Knight” delivered the billion-dollar payoff. “ Star Trek ” writers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci , the tandem that also penned “ Transformers ” and next summer’s “ Cowboys & Aliens ” and also created the Fox sci-fi series “ Fringe ,” are back to script the sequel. The LATimes caught up with the screenwriters, who talked about the challenges ahead and also shared a playful aspiration — an on-screen showdown between Captain Kirk and Darth Vader . LT: It’s early days on the “Star Trek” sequel, but is there anything you can tell us about the story direction, tone or even the types of challenges you’re anticipating with this next-step projec

Jon Favreau to Direct Magic Kingdom For Disney

Jon Favreau Got His Mickey Ears On Jon Favreau is in talks to direct Magic Kingdom , the Disney film with the premise that the attractions at the venerable theme park come to life. The studio set the project up nearly two years ago and got a draft by Battlestar Galactica's Ron Moore, but a new writer will be set and work on a new draft under Favreau.  Favreau will be signing a development deal, because the project will percolate while he works on other big scale studio films. He just completed Cowboys & Aliens , the DreamWorks/Universal co-production that stars Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford . Favreau will finish that film for release on July 29, 2011, and he is expected to re-team with Robert Downey Jr . for a third Iron Man . Magic Kingdom is being produced by Strike Entertainment partners Marc Abraham and Eric Newman, and while the studio has previously tapped theme park attractions for films like Pirates of the Caribbean , this is the first time it has created a movie

Jon Favreau Calls 2011 Box Office A Blood Bath

Jon Favreau Calls 2011 Box Office A Blood Bath Jon Favreau has seen Hollywood’s future — at least as far as summer 2011 – and it looks a lot like “Saving Private Ryan.” “It’s Omaha Beach, it’s going to be a bloodbath,” the filmmaker said of next year’s crush of big special-effects films, remakes and sequels. “There’s never been a summer like this next summer. It’s going to be bloody [for filmmakers and the studios]. As we were sticking thumb tacks in a calendar we realized that this is going to be looked back upon as Omaha Beach.” Favreau, the director of the “Iron Man“ films, is well known to moviegoers as an on-screen funny guy in movies like “ Couples Retreat ” or the sublime “ Swingers “ (which he also wrote), but he wasn’t joking a bit when he said Hollywood is going to be in “a pit fight” next summer because of a glut of high-profile releases that will translate to some big-name disappointments just because of the numbers game. Favreau has a sci-fi horse in the race, of c

Olivia Wilde To Star Opposite Reynolds & Bateman

Olivia Wilde To Star Opposite Reynolds & Bateman In between rounds as House doctor, Olivia Wilde is spending more and more time on the big screen. She has signed to join Ryan Reynolds and Jason Bateman in The Change Up , the David Dobkin-directed Universal Pictures comedy. Bateman plays a married man who switches bodies with slacker best friend ( Reynolds ). Wilde will play the married guy's law firm co-worker, who's an impetus for the body switch. The comedy, written by The Hangover scribes Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, films this fall. Neal Moritz is producer. Wilde will next be seen in the Paul Haggis-directed The Next Three Days opposite Russell Crowe , the Hugh Jackman - Jennifer Garner comedy Butter , and she plays a digital warrior trapped in a computer world in the Joseph Kosinski-directed Tron: Legacy . She just shot Cowboys and Aliens , the Jon Favreau-directed DreamWorks/Universal film that stars Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford for next summer release. P

Daniel Craig The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo

Daniel Craig To Star In The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo Daniel Craig has closed his deal to play journalist Mikael Blomkvist in The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo , a deal which factors in options for two sequels based on The Girl Who Played With Fire, and The Girl Who Kicked The Hornets' Nest. The novels comprise the bestselling trilogy by late Stieg Larsson. Deadline told you first about the Craig talks, which back in June were hardly a certainty, because there were so many hurdles to jump. I'm told that with a whole lot of juggling between three studios, Craig will be able to make the movies. Essentially, he will begin work on the first film in Sweden, as soon as he removes his cowboy hat from shooting Cowboys and Aliens in the early fall. Scheduling was coordinated between Dragon Tattoo-maker Sony Pictures Entertainment, DreamWorks partners Stacey Snider and Steven Spielberg--who were flexible on the Cowboys and Aliens schedule--and James Bond rights holders Barbara Brocc

Who Is The Man In The Shadow From Cowboys & Aliens?

Who Is The Man In The Shadow From Cowboys & Aliens? Director Jon Favreau who’s about to film the adaptation Cowboys & Aliens, recently tweeted this image, which didn’t show much. Part of camera tests, showing a sihouette of some dude standing, with a very bright backlight, he’s obviously in costume but no one knows who that was. Jon talked to Collider at a recent screening of Empire Strikes Back that in deed it was film star Daniel Craig. Favreau: I know, if you look at him, we just did our camera tests. That’s him. On the Twitter pic? That’s him. We couldn’t really show too much because he didn’t want to reveal any images on Twitter but I wanted to kind of get a sense of the feel of it. He’s also somebody who plays an iconic figure that has a long tradition. So to have him playing a cowboy, I feel very good now having shot him and worked with him and hearing his thoughts. And the whole cast is great. With each person we add, the enthusiasm grows, with Rockwell and

Sam Rockwell Joins Cast Of "Cowboys and Aliens"

Sam Rockwell Joins Cast Of  "Cowboys and Aliens" Sam Rockwell is reteaming with Jon Favreau for another comic book adaptation, DreamWorks' "Cowboys and Aliens." Rockwell, who portrays arms manufacturer Justin Hammer in the Favreau-directed "Iron Man 2," has joined the cast of "Cowboys," the alien invasion-meets-the Wild West project that Favreau begins shooting in June. Daniel Craig, Olivia Wilde and Harrison Ford are already cast in the tale, based on a Platinum Studios graphic novel, of cowboys and Indians rising up against aliens. Rockwell will play a bar owner named Doc who joins in the pursuit of the aliens. Once Favreau and the writers -- Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci and Damon Lindelof -- learned that Rockwell was interested in the movie, they reconceived and expanded the role, which initially called for a heavy-set man.

Harrison Ford To Join Cowboys & Aliens?

Harrison Ford Joining Cowboys & Aliens? Latino Review claims that Harrison Ford maybe joining the cast of the upcoming Jon Favreau's Cowboys & Aliens. Jon Favreau himself posted the following on Twitter this evening... "Some very cool Cowboys & Aliens casting news coming soon..." If true, the sci-fi spaghetti Western would be Ford's first foray into comic-book movies. Based on Scott Mitchell Rosenberg's graphic novel, Cowboys & Aliens is set in a Wild West made even 200% wilder by the presence of extra-terrestrials who enslave humans and slug it out with a united force of cowboys and Apache warriors. Hypothetically, of course, Ford would be joining up with Daniel Craig, who stepped into the role of gunslinger Zeke Jackson when Robert Downey Jr. pulled out. It's a grizzled-faced pairing to scare the hell out of any alien with a pulse. Late last week before the holiday break I got a tip from a source that Harrison Ford was about to jo
