Futura alternatives

Hello all,

I've noticed lately some great applications of Futura-like type:

President's choice packaging (it is replacing the over-used Trajan they previously had on their labels): http://www.presidentschoice.ca/

Sci-fi channel website: http://www.scifi.com/onair/index.php?id=0

I was wondering what fonts are similar to this and have a similar feel. So far I've discovered:

-Futura
-Century Gothic

what else is like those?

It would be great to have an updated opentype version of Futura, with all the alts and osf that Renner originally designed.
In saying that Neutraface-2 is ridiculously useable (more for text than Futura I would say) and although a different beast, it is in similar vein (ish)

Franz:

The Foundry has Renner and Renner Bold in its Architype library. Not sure whether those are OpenType.

Also check out P22’s LTC Twentieth Century.

Moreover, there’s Gert Wiescher’s Futura Classic.
