Last night at CinemaCon 2012, Paramount and DreamWorks Animation showed off footage from their upcoming 2012 movies including director Christopher McQuarrie‘s One Shot (starring Tom Cruise), Sacha Baron Cohen‘s The Dictator, Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted, Rise of the Guardians, and G.I. Joe: Retaliation.
In addition to the footage, if you’re a fan of J.J. Abrams Star Trek and anxiously awaiting the sequel, during a tribute to a retiring Paramount executive, Abrams was interviewed on set wearing a very cool Star Trek 2 crew hat. While he was only on screen for a few seconds, it was clear he was on the deck of the Enterprise, the hat had a number 2 in the front, and I immediately wanted to own one. Hit the jump for more.
Shortly after watching the footage, I recorded a video blog with Peter from Slashfilm which you can watch below. We both agreed the footage of One Shot looked great. During the presentation, Paramount showed three scenes from the film. One featured Cruise saying some nasty stuff to a woman and then kicking the shit out of a few people. Another was an awesome car chase that felt gritty and real. It also featured a classic car getting pummeled. While I didn’t know that much about the Jack Reacher book series, after seeing the footage, I might have to pick up the books.
Anyway, here’s the video blog. Look for a lot more of these all week. If you missed the one we recorded yesterday for G.I. Joe: Retaliation, click here.
