Hollywood's Query: Cowboys, Aliens, Smurfs, or Apes?

Weekends on All Things Considered just wrapped a week of production in LA. And we found out it's hard to spend much time here without movies on the mind.

At the box office, this month so far has been one weird creature flick after another battling for the top spot. Cowboys and Aliens just about tied The Smurfs last weekend. But this weekend's Rise of the Planet of the Apes smashed them both.
