The con is like 4 weeks away and still no program schedule? Come on people, we need to plan out the weekend

It usually comes out just a few weeks ahead of the con, right? I'd expect it to drop in the next week most likely. I am getting a little antsy too, though...

I hear that it happens Thursday morning, so we don't have to deal with them the rest of the con.

That's actually kind of how I feel. Out of all of the years I've attended SDCC, I've only gone to 1 set of panels. The only thing that got me to wait in the gigantic Hall H line was Hayao Miyazaki being in attendance to introduce Ponyo. I figured that might be the only time I ever have a chance to see him, so I had to do it. I stayed for District 9 and some other panels after. It was worth the wait, but that's the only time I've done it. I probably won't go to any this year, but I always like to look at the schedule just in case something fantastic is happening.

That actually makes sense, so I doubt it's true :D

Most likely it will be at the end of the day Saturday with nothing but comic book panels before it, so the Twilight folks can camp in there all day watching things they don't care about until they finally get to see Edward & Jacob.

I never go near hall h, except maybe to take photo's of cosplayers in the line ups. There's already a large number of really good panels dedicated to comic books that I'd rather go to.

For me I appreciate the cool movie stuff that other cons don't offer. I did a full Hall H day last year for the Tron panel and saw the Expendables, Scott Pilgrim and some other good ones. I'm up for that again this year.

With the movie studios staying away this year, I suspect Hall H will be a little bit more manageable. At least you won't have media people claiming your space.

SOME movie studios are staying away. Not all of them.

And there are still A LOT of hugely popular movies and tv shows already announcing they'll be in attendance. I don't think the handful that are bowing out this year is going to make a huge difference. But I guess we'll see...

The only thing I had on me for Kane to sign last year at Wrestlemania was a baseball. He kind of reacted weird to it. I'd like to bring it back and have him sign it again.

I had G4's Olivia Munn, Kevin Pereira, and Blair Butler sign a baseball at SDCC a few years back. They all kind of looked at me like I was crazy and I think Kevin said something like "You know we're nerds, right...I've never signed a baseball before!" It made them chuckle and it is a cool souvenir...I like it! I've been thinking about bringing one (or a football) this year and just having everyone I meet sign it...that could be a fun thing to display.

‘Cowboys & Aliens’ world premiere will be at Comic-Con International [updated]
June 13, 2011 | 9:25 a.m.
EXCLUSIVE
"Cowboys & Aliens" (Universal Pictures)
It looks like “Cowboys & Aliens” will saddle up in San Diego.
Filmmaker Jon Favreau had just walked off stage Sunday night after a sparkling “Iron Man” reunion at the Hero Complex Film Festival, but his thoughts were already on a far-bigger spotlight moment this summer — Comic-Con International in San Diego.
“The worldwide premiere of ‘Cowboys & Aliens’ will be at
Comic-Con,” the director said of his hard-edged sci-fi western that
stars Daniel Craig, Harrison Ford, Olivia Wilde and Sam Rockwell “And not only are we going to premiere it there, we’re going to find a
way to include as many of the fans as possible. I feel like they’ve come out for me, they’ve supported me.”
The movie goes into wide release on July 29 with its tale of an alien invasion in six-shooter days of 1873 Arizona. To some ears, the title
might suggest a bit of camp, but the absolute opposite is the case — the nine minutes of footage that Favreau brought as a surprise to the
Sunday night festival audience showed intense Old West action and men
with gun-metal eyes making hard choices in an unforgiving terrain. The
audience gave a robust ovation for the footage, suggesting that Favreau
might be poised to deliver his third big hit following the “Iron Man”
films in 2008 and 2010 that combined for a billion-dollar success. This
new film puts him at the point-position of a behind-the-camera team that includes producers Ron Howard, Brian Grazer, Damon Lindelof, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci and executive producer Steven Spielberg
Favreau said details are being put in place for the premiere, and
that he would have more to say very soon. San Diego has been especially
kind to the filmmaker, and he had shown a flair for showmanship and fan connection that (along with his acting career) has earned him more than a million followers on Twitter. There will be serious logistical challenges ahead — it won’t be easy
to carve out a spot for a world premiere amid the madness and din of
Comic-Con week — but Favreau knows the San Diego rodeo better than
anyone in Hollywood.
“That’s where it all started, and I want to give back,” he said. “They should have the opportunity to see it first.”

Attention, "Twilight" fans: Summit Entertainment announced Tuesday (June 14) via the "Twilight" Facebook page that "Breaking Dawn - Part 1" will play a significant role in the studio's presentation at San Diego Comic-Con this year.
"The studio will host one of the first panels of the day in Hall H on Thursday, July 21st dedicated to 'The Twilight Saga' franchise,"
Summit's statement reads. "Fans interested in the story's final chapters will be shown exclusive footage from 'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1' and be treated to a filmmaker and cast Q&A session
providing details on the first half of the epic two part finale, in
theatres November 18, 2011."
We don't know which castmembers will be in attendance yet, but
because July 21 is still a ways away, we imagine Summit will release a
few more details as the epic comic and pop-culture convention
approaches.
For those who have been following "Twilight" since the beginning, you will likely remember that Comic-Con 2008 was the first time the cast appeared together in public, creating a
frenzy so big and shocking that other media outlets in addition to MTV
News finally realized how serious the fans were about the soon-to-be
blockbuster and its stars.
In 2009, the stars were back for more, and their popularity had
grown considerably, leading to mile-long lines outside Hall H, where
their panels were to take place. The three lead actors — Robert
Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner — admitted that the convention was still an intimidating place. The rest of the massive cast was also on hand for a series of appearances around San Diego, along with unveiling a slew of "New Moon" and "Twilight"-specific merchandise.
Last year, Comic-Con was without any major "Twilight" action
since "Eclipse" had been released already and production on "Breaking
Dawn" had yet to begin.

- The Wrestling Observer reports that former WWE star Tajiri's SMASH
promotion in Japan had a match on June 9th with two women wrestlers,
Kana and Lin Byron, where the loser would have to show the crowd their
bare breasts. Byron lost the match but when she took her top off, kept
her bra on and would not flash the crowd. The stipulation did help as
they drew 100-200 more fans than usual.

Marvel had a huge presence at last year’s Comic Con — the studio basically owned the cavernous Hall H thanks to presentations that showed off footage from Thor and Captain America, and a stunt that confirmed Joss Whedon as director of The Avengers while bringing the film’s topline cast together on the big stage.

So how does Marvel follow that? Easy: it doesn’t. We more or less knew that Marvel was likely to skip Hall H this year and now the studio has confirmed that it will not bring a big panel to the Con.

This doesn’t mean that Marvel won’t be at the Con at all, of course. Its Comic Con, and Marvel will have a big booth on the floor, where it will probably unveil a prop or two from The Avengers, and the LA Times reports that there could be a big off-site event — likely something related to Captain America, as that film opens during the Con. And Marvel characters will still be present thanks to Sony’s planned The Amazing Spider-Man presentation. I’d be surprised if we didn’t see the Ghost Rider sequel as well.

This makes sense, and could suggest two things. One, that the company isn’t ready to unveil projects that are planned beyond Iron Man 3. The other could be that new Marvel parent company Disney wants to hold the big Marvel announcements for its own event, the D23 Expo, which is planned for an August 19 kick-off. (A move similar to the way Nintendo used to avoid the Tokyo Game Show in favor of its own Nintendo World show.) That D23 Expo will also see the unveiling of John Carter and The Lone Ranger.
