In celebration of the Cowboys & Aliens movie premiere 7-Eleven gives away film-themed freebies in select stores and Slurpees at comic book convention.
7-Eleven plans to give its fans an insider’s look at Comic-Con International, the largest comic book and popular arts convention in the world, as seen through eyes of on-site roving reporter Art Baltazar.
Baltazar, an award-winning comic artist and writer, will spend five fun-filled days at Comic-Con from July 20-24, bringing 7-Eleven fans and Comic-Con enthusiasts across the country exclusive content and previews for the upcoming movie Cowboys & Aliens, in theaters July 29. Fans can follow Baltazar’s adventures through 7-Eleven’s, Slurpee’s and Baltazar’s Twitter and Facebook pages.
In Cowboys & Aliens, blockbuster filmmaker Jon Favreau directs Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford in an event film for summer 2011 that crosses the classic Western with the alien-invasion movie in a blazingly original way. Joined by an arsenal of top moviemakers — Steven Spielberg, Ron Howard, Brian Grazer, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci — Favreau brings an all-new action thriller that will take audiences into the Old West, where a lone cowboy leads an uprising against a terror from beyond our world. 7-Eleven’s man-about-town reporter will be stationed at the Cowboys & Aliens world premiere on Saturday, July 23, to give fans an up-close and personal look at all the red carpet action.
In addition to keeping the masses updated on all things Cowboys & Aliens and Comic-Con, 7-Eleven will provide fans with free Slurpee drinks to beat the California heat at its Slurpee trailer, which will be located in the PETCO Park parking lot during Comic-Con. The Slurpee trailer will be cooling off the crowds from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. July 21-23.
Eleven San Diego downtown-area 7-Eleven stores will offer film-themed freebies daily from July 21-23, while supplies last. Those stores are located at: 525 C Street; 1670 Kettner Boulevard; 1223 Market Street; 600 West Grape; 1150 Broadway; 555 West C Street; 417 9th Avenue; 1010 Second Avenue; 1007 5th Avenue; 1469 State Street; 1631 6th Avenue.
