WHEN Harrison Ford began reading the script for his latest movie Cowboys & Aliens, it’s fair to say he wasn’t too impressed.
Rumour has it that after the first 30 pages he threw the script across the room at his agent, saying: “There’s nothing in this for me!”

(Space.com) Hollywood seems to have caught alien fever.
In the past few months, a slew of big-budget alien movies has hit theaters, from kiddie flicks (“Mars Needs Moms”) to comedies (“Paul”) to high-octane action films (“Battle: Los Angeles,” “Green Lantern” and the just-released “Cowboys & Aliens,” among others). And many more such movies are on the way, both this year and next.
Cowboys & Aliens has beat out The Smurfs for box-office supremacy with a take of $36.4 million. The Smurfs came in second place with a gross of $35.6 million. Captain America came in third place with a gross of $25.5 million.

The Wild West just got a little wilder … and creepier. “Cowboys & Aliens” is a genre-bending western-sci-fi-horror flick that takes the classic world of dusty, dirty gunslingers and saloon fights to a new level. Director Jon Favreau has taken a traditional man-with-no-name western and bolted on the thrills and chills of a deep-space monster movie.

Jon Favreau is trying to reinvent the publicity machine. He’s seen how it’s been done in the past and is clearly trying to come up with new ways to market his movies to fans. With Cowboys & Aliens, it looks like he’s getting some leeway to control that publicity. At WonderCon, he pledged that only the folks in the room would get a sneak peek at the aliens and further images of the creatures wouldn’t be spoiled in the trailers, TV spots, and other press materials. He’s also planning to hold the film’s world premiere at this year’s Comic-Con.
