Hall H will witness panels for Summit's 'Twilight Saga's Breaking Dawn Part I' and FilmDistrict's 'Don't Be Afraid of the Dark' before 20th Century Fox takes over the place later on the noon.
Two weeks away from the kick-off of San Diego Comic Con 2011, the official panel line-up of the first day has been released. As it was reported before, Summit will present a panel for "The Twilight Saga's Breaking Dawn Part I" in Hall H on Thursday, July 21 at 11:15 A.M. There is still no confirmation, however, on whether or not the "Twilight" trio will come.
Also in Hall H, FilmDistrict Studio will hold a panel for its upcoming releases, "Don't Be Afraid of the Dark" and "Drive", at 2:00 P.M. 20th Century Fox will later use the place to present first-looks at some of its most-anticipated pictures, but the projects meant are yet to be known. Similarly, Robert Rodriguez will make use of the event to present a sneak peek to his upcoming films.
While Warner Bros. Pictures is not scheduled to hold a panel for "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" and "The Hobbit: There and Back Again", latest updates from the two films can be obtained during "TheOneRing.net: Hobbit Talk" which will take place at 10:00 A.M.
