Summit Entertainment Details 2011 Comic Con Plans

Summit LogoSummit Entertainment just issued the following press release:

For the fourth year in a row, Summit Entertainment will provide the Comic-Con® International audience with a unique, interactive booth experience featuring films from the studio’s upcoming slate, including an action adventure update of the beloved THE THREE MUSKETEERS, the alien invasion thriller THE DARKEST HOUR with effects from visionary filmmaker Timur Bekmambetov, and the highly anticipated THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN – PART 1.

Those who stop by will be able to speak live via phone with select actors and filmmakers from Summit films, as well as participate in contests and giveaways. The authors of three novels that Summit Entertainment is bringing to life on the big screen will also complete autograph signings at the booth.

§ Erin Morgenstern is the author of NIGHT CIRCUS, a novel about 19th century teenage illusionists.

§ Isaac Marion is the author of WARM BODIES, in which an existentially tormented zombie begins an unlikely romance with the girlfriend of one of his victims. Jonathan Levine is attached to direct, with Nicholas Hoult (X-MEN: FIRST CLASS) and Teresa Palmer (I AM NUMBER FOUR) attached to star.

§ Veronica Roth is the 22-year-old author of DIVERGENT, which launched on the New York Times best-seller list. In the dystopic future of DIVERGENT, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to a particular virtue: honesty, selflessness, bravery, peacefulness, or intelligence.

In addition to Summit’s booth presence at Comic-Con®, the studio will also host one of the first panels of the day in Hall H on Thursday, July 21st dedicated to THE TWILIGHT SAGA franchise. 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.

  6. CullenCoven says:

    I wish I could go but we can barely afford shoes much less a plane ticket from Pennsylvania

  7. Melissa R says:

    Anyone know how this works? I HAVE tix to ComicCon, but I assume I’ll have to wait in line with everyone else to get my badge, so how do I wait in line to get into this panel before I’m allowed in the building? Or are only people with preview tickets allowed to wait?

  8. @Melissa R. I went last year, and here’s how it worked then. Wed. is the first day you can pick up your badges. They will let us know when/where you can get them then. After that you’re right, it’s all about the line..wear comfortable shoes. So Twilight is in Hall H, which seats about 6500 people. Anyone can wait outside of hall H, there’s no preference on Thursday. Usually Twilight is in the afternoon, and they don’t clear the rooms in between panels, so it’s best to get there in the morning, and sit through all the panels, moving up seats each time to get closer until Twilight.
