Despite not bringing The Dark Knight Rises, which opens the week after, Warner Bros. has obviously made this year’s San Diego Comic-Con a priority. Their movie panel will take up 2.5 hours of time in Hall H Saturday promoting The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, Pacific Rim and Man of Steel. Their TV shows such as The Big Bang Theory and Fringe will also be in Hall H and new shows like Arrow, The Following, Cult, Revolution and 666 Park Avenue will all have a presence and some screenings.
But wait, there’s more. Warner Bros. will present a massive outdoor entertainment festival called Extra at Comic-Con on the lawn behind the convention center and in front of the San Diego Hilton Bayfront. Screenings, interviews, video game demonstrations, Batmobiles and much more will be in the spotlight there throughout the weekend. Read more about it below. Read More »
Buried in the incredibly busy Saturday schedule for San Diego Comic-Con 2012 is a panel concerning M. Night Shyamalan‘s latest film, After Earth. The sci-fi film, which stars Will and Jaden Smith, seems like a natural fit for Comic-Con, but neither the director or its two leads will be in attendance.
Instead, the panel will be in a medium sized room. It will feature the screenwriter and director of photography, and focus more on the comic books designed to accompany the film than it will on the movie itself. Seems like an odd approach but, in this reveal, we do get the first official plot synopsis of the movie. Most of the information has been rumored before but now it’s official. Check it out below.

After the jump, check out a few of Sunday’s highlights including Doctor Who, Sons of Anarchy and the documentary Drew: The Man Behind the Poster. Read More »
One word can be used to described the Saturday schedule of San Diego Comic-Con 2012: “Wow.” Whereas Thursday and Friday are merely peppered with highlights, Saturday is jam-packed full of presentations sure to make your heat spin. We’d heard Warner Bros. would be bringing The Hobbit and Pacific Rim to the Con, but they’re also bringing Man of Steel. We’d heard Quentin Tarantino was coming to Con with Django Unchained, and that’s now confirmed. Details from M. Night Shyamalan‘s Will Smith movie, After Earth, will be revealed. Kevin Smith will have Hall H to himself for two hours to talk about whatever he wants. Oh, and Marvel has an hour to talk Iron Man 3 and whatever else they want. Guess what? That’s not even close to a full list of events.

Friday is the second ‘official’ day of each San Diego Comic Con, and it’s the day where things start to kick into gear. The SDCC organization and various film studios announced their Friday plans today, and there are some great things happening.
The best are at Sony’s panel in Hall H, where the studio will show off Rian Johnson‘s Looper (with Johnson, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Emily Blunt in attendance) and debut the first footage from Neill Blomkamp‘s Elysium (with Blomkamp, producer Simon Kinberg, Matt Damon and Jodie Foster showing up). Comic Con could be said to be Blomkamp’s first home, as that’s where his debut feature District 9 first got loads of attention, back in 2008.
This schedule also shows that television is taking a pole position this year, as Hall H has big presentations for The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones, and there are big events for Firefly, Community, Breaking Bad, and many more shows.
There’s a lot more going on during the day, but hit the jump to get some highlights. Read More »
