It was quite the Hollywood posse — Harrison Ford, Daniel Craig, Steven Spielberg, Jon Favreau, Ron Howard and Olivia Wilde? Comic-Con International has been bringing in movie stars for years now, but the San Diego pop-culture expo has never seen anything like the world premiere of “Cowboys & Aliens” on Saturday.

Favreau, the director of the film and a true savant when it comes to fanboy culture and film promotion, championed the idea of making the premiere a Comic-Con tie-in. It was at Comic-Con that Favreau found his way to the project in the first place (as he explained to Hero Complex when we visited the film’s New Mexico set), and it was at Comic-Con that he introduced the movie to the world last year via a memorable preview panel. If the movie does well when it opens Friday, he might just round up the posse for a sequel that saddles up in San Diego in a year or two.
