The purpose of the new Triangle Arts & Entertainment Free-Film List is to help YOU obtain YOUR OWN free passes — most of them good for TWO people — for upcoming sneak previews of films. It is up to you to contact the outlet(s) listed beneath each film’s title and preview date. In some cases, you may request a pass online; but you must act fast, fast, fast, because the window of opportunity for online signups can slam shut in the blink of an eye. In other cases, you will have to pick the passes up at a location designated by the screening’s sponsor(s). (For more information about advance screenings in the Triangle, click on Getting Information About *Free* Sneak Previews and Sneak-Preview Etiquette.)

Good luck,

SYNOPSIS #1 (from Rotten Tomatoes [not yet rated]: http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/cowboys-and-aliens/)

1875. New Mexico Territory. A stranger (Daniel Craig) with no memory of his past stumbles into the hard desert town of Absolution. 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. Now, the stranger they rejected is their only hope for salvation. As this gunslinger slowly starts to remember who he is and where he’s been, he realizes he holds a secret that could give the town a fighting chance against the alien force. — ©  Official Site

SYNOPSIS #2 (from Fandango.com: http://www.fandango.com/cowboys26aliens_132449/movieoverview)

Based on the graphic novel by Scott Mitchell Rosenberg, Cowboys & Aliens starts in 1800s Arizona, where the local cowboys, headed by gunslinger Zeke Jackson (Daniel Craig), and the indigenous Apache tribe have been feuding fiercely for quite a while. Their skirmish is interrupted, however, by the appearance of a spaceship, commanded by an alien creature that’s bent on enslaving the human race. It’s time for a six-gun shoot-out between these cattle rustlers and space invaders, and there might even be a temporary peace between the cowboys and Indians as they both take aim at these extraterrestrial uninvited guests. Jon Favreau directs from a script by Star Trek scribes Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, with help from “Lost’s” Damon Lindelof. Olivia Wilde, Harrison Ford, and Sam Rockwell fill out the headlining cast. ~ Cammila Albertson, Rovi
