Harrison Ford got a standing ovation from thousands of fans when he made a surprise appearance at Comic-Con.
The Star Wars actor seemed to be moved by the warm welcome from sci-fi and comic book fans after two security guards playfully brought him out in handcuffs.
"I just wanted to make a living as an actor," he said. "I didn't know about this."
The star was on hand to help present his new film, Cowboys And Aliens, at the event in San Diego, joining a panel that included co-stars Daniel Craig, Sam Rockwell, Olivia Wilde and director Jon Favreau.
The film looks like an old-fashioned Western when suddenly a spaceship arrives.
Favreau said he aimed to balance the two genres without relying on too many computer-generated effects.
"The take was make a by-the-book Western right down the middle ... and mix it with the type of sci-fi movie I grew up with, before they had CG when it was verging on horror," he said. "Then just use GCI to do what they couldn't do back then."
Cowboys And Aliens is set for release next summer.
