CinemaCon 2011: Paramount, Marvel And Dreamworks Screenings

Time for some updates! I saw screenings for Paramount's and Marvel's big comic book adaptations and WOW, did they deliver.

You all know the trepidation I have as many of you do for 3D conversions. Worry not my friends! THOR and CAPTAIN AMERICA are quality products. They ooze quality. Mind you we did not see the 3D conversions in action at CinemaCon, but I have seen scenes before and they are spectacular. The extended clips I just saw further underscore this.

The stories themselves are works of art! Character development is well done and the acting - well you get what you pay for. These are not cheap productions and you can easily see that you will be getting your money's worth.

Yes, Hawkeye played by Jeremy Renner is confirmed in THOR. I saw him IN ACTION. Very nice scene. He is in a more classic military outfit and not the purple suit that you may be accustomed to in the comic. This is a GOOD thing. Brings the reality of the movie home.

Chris Hemsworth himself introduced the THOR clip.

As I have mentioned on facebook and twitter, the Dreamwork's Animation clips were stunning too, especially PUSS IN BOOTS. Mark my words, PIB is going to clean up at the box office. KUNG FU PANDA 2 looks good too, but the character development and storyline for PIB will bring masses upon masses of people to the theater. Katzenberg helped intro the clips along with Jack Black and the director for KFP2.

One last thing, Paramount is obviously very proud of the work they have been doing on these Marvel and Dreamworks Animation films. Congratulations on this year's slate guys! Well done.
