The screening will take place on July 23 at the San Diego Civic Theatre. Tickets will be available to 2,000 fans, but there is no word yet on how they will be distributed. Favreau was quoted as saying, "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... That's where it all started, and I want to give back. They should have the opportunity to see it first."
The film is based on the graphic novel by Scott Mitchell Rosenberg. The cast includes Harrison Ford, Daniel Craig, Olivia Wilde and Sam Rockwell. It is slated for a nationwide release on July 29.
