“Cowboys & Aliens’ World Premiere Will be at Comic-Con

After walking off stage at the Hero Complex Film Festival, director Jon Favreau said, “The worldwide premiere of  Cowboys & Aliens will be at Comic-Con.”

The hard-edged sci-fi western that stars Daniel Craig, Harrison Ford, Olivia Wilde and Sam Rockwell “And not only are we going to premiere it there, we’re going to find a way to include as many of the fans as possible. I feel like they’ve come out for me, they’ve supported me.”

The movie goes into wide release on July 29 with its tale of an alien invasion in six-shooter days of 1873 Arizona. To some ears, the title might suggest a bit of camp, but the absolute opposite is the case — the nine minutes of footage that Favreau brought as a surprise to the Sunday night festival audience showed intense Old West action and men with gun-metal eyes making hard choices in an unforgiving terrain. The audience gave a robust ovation for the footage, suggesting that Favreau might be poised to deliver his third big hit following the “Iron Man” films in 2008 and 2010 that combined for a billion-dollar success. This new film puts him at the point-position of a behind-the-camera team that includes producers Ron Howard, Brian Grazer, Damon Lindelof, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci and executive producer Steven Spielberg

Favreau said details are being put in place for the premiere, and that he would have more to say very soon.
