Cowboys & Aliens To Get World Premiere At San Diego Comic-Con, Fans Welcome

It’s been a long old road for the Cowboys and Aliens, but the rest camp is in sight. The World Premiere of Jon Favreau’s genre blender is just over a month away and, really, what better a venue than at Comic-Con.

This event was actually teased at the Hero Complex Film Festival yesterday, when Favreau mentioned a “serious stunt” planned for the Con to promote the film. Many guessed (Including me! I did!) that this stunt would be a screening for the film.

Now, it’s been officially revealed. Favreau says:

The worldwide premiere of  Cowboys & Aliens will be at Comic-Con. 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.

That’s some sweet karma.

The film will open across the US on July 29th, SDCC runs 21st-24th. I’d count out the extremes, so you’re looking at a lead time of eight or nine days here. Besides, it’s a world premiere no matter when it is. The excitement levels are going to be through the roof.

Now all Rich and I have to do is find out how to get in…

In the meantime, here’s the latest TV spot for the film, as screened during the Spike Awards.
