The event marks the first time that the world's largest entertainment convention has allowed a movie premiere of this size and scope during the weekend's festivities.
"I owe the fans at Comic-Con so much," said Favreau, "and it is only right that they are the first people who will get to see 'Cowboys & Aliens'. By bringing the world premiere of the movie to San Diego, it's my small way of thanking them."
The world premiere event will be held at the San Diego Civic Theatre, Saturday, July 23, 2011. The red carpet events begin at 7:00 PM, and the film starts at 8:00.
