    Thursday schedule now up; all panels in Hall H, all times Pacific Daylight:

    Europa Report panel/Q&A with include director Sebastian Cordero, composer Bear McCreary, producer Ben Browning, actress Karolina Wydra and Jet Propulsion Laboratory scientists Steve Vance and Kevin Hand. At the movies, it seems there’s so much

    Report seeks to change that. The film depicts a near-future crewed
    mission to Jupiter’s moon Europa, seeking evidence for life in an
    ocean beneath the moon’s icy surface. The movie uses current science
    to tell a story of discovery and danger. This panel features the
    film’s crew and cast, alongside scientists involved with a NASA
    concept for a real robotic spacecraft, the Europa Clipper, designed
    to investigate the mysteries of Europa, including whether it has the
    elements to support life.  1:10-2:20pm

    Voltage Pictures Presents: The Zero Theorum
    Directed by Terry Gilliam, an eccentric and reclusive computer
    genius plagued with existential angst works on a mysterious project

    thereof­ once and for all. However, it is only once he
    experiences the power of love and desire that he is able to
    understand his very reason for being. Appearing on stage to introduce

    food, and it worked, but it also unleashed a dangerously delicious
    tsunami of food weather and Flint was forced to destroy it. Or so he

    fun continue when Flint discovers that his old invention is still

    ancient battle to protect our world from demons. After the
    disappearance of her mother (Lena Headey), Clary must join forces
    with a group of Shadowhunters, who introduce her to a dangerous
    alternate New York called Downworld, filled with demons, warlocks,
    vampires, werewolves and other deadly creatures. Based on the
    worldwide best-selling book series.

    and multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the center of robot
    technology. Overseas, their drones have been used by the military for
    years – and it’s meant billions for OmniCorp’s bottom line. Now
    OmniCorp wants to bring their controversial technology to the home
    front, and they see a golden opportunity to do it. When Alex Murphy
    (Kinnaman) – a loving husband, father and good cop doing his
    best to stem the tide of crime and corruption in Detroit – is
    critically injured in the line of duty, OmniCorp sees their chance
    for a part-man, part-robot police officer. OmniCorp envisions a
    RoboCop in every city and even more billions for their shareholders,
    but they never counted on one thing: there is still a man inside the
    machine pursuing justice.

    Super Saturday lineup announced, and it lives up to the name:

    Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary
    Pictures Presents Panels/Q&A/Previews:

    Legendary Pictures: Godzilla — An epic
    rebirth to Toho’s iconic Godzilla, this spectacular adventure pits
    the world’s most famous monster against malevolent creatures who,
    bolstered by humanity’s scientific arrogance, threaten our very
    existence. Gareth Edwards directs Godzilla, which stars Aaron
    Taylor-Johnson, Ken Watanabe, Elizabeth Olsen, and Juliette Binoche,
    with David Strathairn and Bryan Cranston. The screenplay is by Max
    Borenstein, Frank Darabont, and Dave Callaham. Thomas Tull and Jon
    Jashni are producing with Mary Parent and Brian Rogers. Alex Garcia
    and Patricia Whitcher are the executive producers, alongside
    Yoshimitsu Banno and Kenji Okuhira.

    Legendary Pictures: Seventh Son — The
    fantasy action adventure Seventh Son takes audiences to a time long
    past, where evil is about to be unleashed. Jeff Bridges stars as
    Master Gregory, a Falcon Knight who imprisoned the malevolently
    powerful witch Mother Malkin (Julianne Moore) years ago. Now escaped,
    she seeks vengeance, and Gregory has only until the next blood moon
    to train a new apprentice (Ben Barnes), the seventh son of a seventh
    son, to fight a dark magic unlike any other. Oscar nominee Sergei
    Bodrov directs an international cast that includes Alicia Vikander,
    Kit Harington, Olivia Williams, Antje Traue, and Djimon Hounsou.

    Warner Bros. Pictures: 300: Rise of an
    Empire — From producer Zack Snyder, Warner Bros. Pictures and
    Legendary Pictures present a new chapter in this epic saga, based on
    Frank Miller’s graphic novel Xerxes and told in the same breathtaking
    visual style as the blockbuster 300. Directed by Noam Murro, 300:
    Rise of an Empire takes the action to a fresh battlefield-on the
    sea-with a cast of both new and returning stars, led by Sullivan
    Stapleton, Eva Green, Lena Headey, Hans Matheson, David Wenham, and
    Rodrigo Santoro. Gianni Nunnari, Mark Canton, Zack Snyder, Deborah
    Snyder, and Bernie Goldmann produce, with Zack Snyder and Kurt
    Johnstad again collaborating on the screenplay.

    Warner Bros. Pictures: Gravity — From
    director Alfonso Cuarón comes the sci-fi Thriller Gravity, starring
    Sandra Bullock and George Clooney. Dr. Ryan Stone (Bullock) is a
    brilliant medical engineer on her first shuttle mission, alongside
    veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky (Clooney). On a seemingly routine
    spacewalk, disaster strikes, leaving them completely alone-tethered
    to nothing but each other and spiraling out into the blackness. The
    deafening silence tells them they have lost any link to Earth…and
    any chance for rescue. As fear turns to panic, every gulp of air eats
    away at what little oxygen is left. But the only way home may be to
    go further into the terrifying expanse of space.

    Warner Bros. Pictures: The LEGO Movie
    — From directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller of 21 Jump Street
    comes the first ever full-length theatrical LEGO adventure, The LEGO
    Movie, about a perfectly average LEGO minifigure named Emmet who is
    mistakenly identified as the most extraordinary person and the key to
    saving the world. He is drafted into a fellowship of strangers on an
    epic quest to stop an evil tyrant, a journey for which he is
    hopelessly and hilariously underprepared. The original 3D computer
    animated story stars Chris Pratt, Will Ferrell, Elizabeth Banks, Will
    Arnett, Nick Offerman, and Alison Brie, with Liam Neeson and Morgan
    Freeman. 10:45am-1:15pm

    I, Frankenstein panel with stars Aaron

    The footage for Divergent could make or break the film as it seems the film has very little awareness right now considering the relative popularity of the books. The Catching Fire panel will undoubtedly be the big attraction of the convention. The two marvel properties could possibly underwhelm given how the first Thor was awful and the first Captain America was mediocre instead of spectacular. Both films are obviously trading and relying on the success of TGhe Avengers to propel them.

    Also being rumored is that at the Marvel panel the entire cast of Avengers 2 will be introduced much like they did for the first film.

    ^I think it’ll definitely be tricky to successfully pull off. And with Zach Snyder supposedly back at the helm, I dunno….

    And there it is.

    No annoucement about Flash or Justice League though. Guess we’ll just have to keep on waiting.

    As I thought, the less than expected results from Man of Steel made DC Comics and Warners realized they needed to reboot somewhat further.

    MoS now looks like it will fall a bit short of $300 million in the US/C, with Despicable Me 2 the likely #2 film of 2013, at least until the Hunger Games sequel comes along.

    It’s not a reboot though. It’s the MOS sequel that has Batman in it.

    Oh great. It wasn’t enough to turn Superman in a hollow, darker character in the film, now it has to compete screentime with freaking Batman. Urgh.

    Not an official reboot, but a sign that DC and Warners know that MoS wasn’t strong enough on its own to justify spending another $400 million + on production and marketing

    Curious they didn’t announce resigning Snyder (unless that was already done?) and Cavill (ditto?)
