The official schedule for movie panels at the 2013 San Diego Comic-Con on Thursday, July 18 has been unveiled. The much-talked-about thriller from director Sebastian Cordero, "Europa Report", will be the opening panel in Hall H at 1:10 P.M - 2:20 P.M. Cordero and actress Karolina Wydra are confirmed to be in attendance.
Later that day, Hall H will host panels for two highly-anticipated feature adaptations from Summit Entertainment. "Ender's Game" will exclusively debut "all-new" footage during the panel with Asa Butterfield, Harrison Ford, Hailee Steinfeld and Abigail Breslin set to show up as the panelists alongside producer Roberto Orci and director Gavin Hood.
Additionally, Summit will take "Divergent" to the annual convention. Not only does the Neil Burger movie bring "the first footage ever seen," but it also secures Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Miles Teller, Maggie Q, Ansel Elgort, Mekhi Phifer, Ben Lamb, Ben Lloyd-Hughes and Christian Madsen to be on hand for the Q&A session.
Special for movie fans, Voltage Pictures will present an exclusive first look at Terry Gilliam-directed "The Zero Theorem", which introduces Christoph Waltz as an eccentric and reclusive computer genius who works on a mysterious project aimed at discovering the purpose of existence. Producers Zey Foreman and Dean Zanuck will show up for promoting the film.
In addition to the Hall H panels, Comic-Con will hold a "Masters of the Web" gathering at Room 24ABC, with "You're Next" director and writer Adam Wingard and Simon Barrett set to moderate it.
