I dont see much difference between the two. Both skew towards an older audience and I cant see that older demographic getting excited about either one.

Personnally everytime I see the TV ads for Cowboys where they shoot at an alien spaceship with a six shooter I roll on the floor laughing in stupified amazement.

I just dont know who they thought the audiece for either of these pictures was going to be. I dont think either one will break 100 million nationally.

I think it's a toss up also. The industry expects Capt'n America to do more business, personally I'd rather see Cowboy's vs Aliens, but what do I know I'm off 4000 admits from the same period last year.

During the showing of a packed screening of Transformers the trailers came on for Captain America and Cowboys Vs. Aliens. The audience fidgeted and got up and went to get concessions yet when Captain America came on The crowd was cheering and talking about that one.
It was a audience of very different age groups but they all seemed to want to see Captain America and seemed to have no interest in Cowboys.
That was not the first time that reaction was seen but every time the trailer comes on for Cowboys it is the same reaction!

Cowboys to me me will have the Super 8 problem. Will play well in certain locations/markets and not well smaller towns (hit or miss). Captain America should have broad based support in most markets.

Captain America has had higher pre-buzz among my customers besides Harry Potter. So that would be my choice UNLESS, you have 3d near you. Then it really becomes a coin flip.

Captain America total estimated B.O. is $150ish million while Cowboys & Aliens is $90 million.

If you go Cowboys, which terms do you take:

Scaled Aggregate
< $50 49.0%

$50 < $60 50.0%

$60 < $70 51.0%

$70 < $85 52.0%

$85 < $100 53.0%

$100 < $125 54.0%

$125 < $150 55.0%

$150 < $175 56.0%

$175 < $200 57.0%

$200 < $250 58.0%

$250 < $300 59.0%

Greater than $300m 60.0%

or

Aggregate 57.0%

Boxoffice.com is expecting a $90 m cume. I guessed wrong on Fast Five.

Rufus,
I would go with scaled aggregate. It has to double the expectations to cost you even money. I take those odds any day. I do however think C&A will surprise a lot of people.
