Posted on July 26, 2011 by PopFunkThis post is brought to you by The Batman Dark Knight T-shirt Collection by Popfunk.com and MovieWeb. Cowboys and Aliens, or The Smurfs? Which movie will rank supreme? With summer in full swing, what better way to escape the heat than kickin’ back and watching a movie this weekend? There are some big new releases we have been waiting for since their previews graced the big screen early this year. Here is what we think. The Weekend's Big Winner: Cowboys and Aliens. 1873. Arizona Territory. A stranger (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 fear it can scarcely comprehend as the desolate city is attacked by marauders from the sky, that even batman couldn't stop. Now, the stranger they rejected is their only hope for salvation. United against a common enemy, they will prepare for an epic showdown for survival. The Weekend's Best Bet: The Smurfs make their first 3D trip to the big screen in Columbia Pictures'/Sony Pictures Animation's hybrid live-action and animated family comedy. When the evil wizard Gargamel chases the Smurfs out of their village, they're forced through a portal, out of their world and into ours, landing in the middle of New York's Central Park. Just three apples high and stuck in the Big Apple, the Smurfs must find a way to get back to their village before Gargamel tracks them down. (Both movies will be released this Friday July 29th!) So, which movie are you gonna see? Feel like escaping reality for a while, watching a sci-fi western comic book turned movie, with an incredible cast and great special effects? Or are you going to take the nostalgic route, remembering the years of watching the little blue guys on the boob tube during your Saturday morning cartoon line-up.
