COMIC-CON Saturday Programming 

Saturday is a day of big movies in Hall H. It starts with the Warner Brothers panel. This one is always one of the best of the day. They usually pull out some extra side screens for an experience that really surrounds you. I think it’s safe to say we should expect a lot of DC footage.

This will be followed by the PRIDE AND PREJUDICE AND ZOMBIES panel. I’m sure all of the ladies in the room will be swooning over Matt Smith the whole time. Then we’ll get to finally see some footage from the long awaited Tarantino film, THE HATEFUL EIGHT. I’m sure Tarantino will bring some of his usual co-stars for the Q & A.

Legendary will come on after that. And finally it lists Chris Hardwick moderating. Who doesn’t love a Hardwick panel? They’ll be bringing a little bit more footage from WARCRAFT and CRIMSON PEAK. Legendary will also be introducing GREAT WALL and KRAMPUS.

Dark Horse will be bringing the Nerd President out, Mr. Joss Whedon himself. No idea what this one will be about. And the last huge thing in Hall H for the day will be 20th Century Fox. This one is usually fun with a side of freebies.

Ballroom 20 will be another day full of TV goods, starting the day with ONCE UPON A TIME and some sneak peaks to the new season. The next panel is listed as a ‘must-see’ with a bunch of random TV stars including David Anders, Yvette Nicole Brown, Wendi Mclendon-Covey, Norman Reedus, Eliza Taylor, Ming-Na Wen, and the adorable Maisie Williams.

The next two panels in Ballroom 20 are filled with animation. First will be 45 minutes of THE SIMPSONS followed by an hour and 45 min of Seth MacFarlene creations including FAMILY GUY and AMERICAN DAD.

GRIMM is next in Ballroom 20 guaranteeing an exclusive sneak peek at Season 5. After that, Ronald D. Moore is bringing OUTLANDER to the Ballroom. The last panel of the day will be for the mourning ‘Fannibals.’ Bryan Fuller is bringing Hugh Dancy to talk all things HANNIBAL.

For those Non Hall H-ers and Ballroom 20 folks, LAST MAN ON EARTH will be in the Indigo Ballroom at 10am. The new AMC series INTO THE BADLANDS will be in Room 5AB at 10:30am vs. Marvel Animation in Room 6BCF at 10:30am. The new NBC series BLINDSPOT will screen their pilot in Room 6A at 11:15am with a Q & A to follow. ‘Enjoy Your Burrito’ with Nerdist Industries at their panel in the Indigo Ballroom at 1pm. For those of you who remember INVADER ZIM, Jhonen Vasquez will be in Room 29AB talking about the revival of the series at 2pm. The LEGO video game series will be bringing MARVEL’S AVENGERS to a console near you this winter, and some of the guys behind the game will be in Room 6A at 4:15pm to show some live game-play demos. The annual Comic Con Masquerade will close out the night on Saturday in Ballroom 20 starting at 8:30pm.
