A Gala presentation of Jon Favreau's "Cowboys & Aliens" will close the Los Angeles Latino International Film Festival, running July 17-25. The film, starring Daniel Craig, Harrison Ford, Olivia Wilde, Sam Rockwell, Adam Beach, Paul Dano, and more was co-written by Mexican-born Roberto Orci and his writing partner Alex Kurtzman (their work together includes The Island, The Legend of Zorro, Mission: Impossible III and Transformers).
