Hobbit to be featured in Hall H at Comic Con?

If you’re in the San Diego area for Comic Con this year and you have a great affinity for Middle Earth, you might want to mark your calendars down for Saturday, July 20. As sdccblog.com reports, The Hobbit is expected to be featured in the Warner Bros. Pictures panel.

Here are the details:

That’s right – a Warner Bros. Pictures rep has just confirmed for us that its Hall H panel will again be on the Saturday of Comic-Con this year.

We can only imagine the films which will be included in its presentation. Just looking at our Movies of SDCC 2013 preview, we list The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, Alfonso Cuarón’s Gravity starring George Clooney, and the first real footage of Godzilla. Not to mention all the news about the DC cinematic universe. And those are just some of the things we’re expecting to hear – we imagine WB will slip in a few surprises as well. Continue…

A key thing to watch out for is the crowd’s reaction to the frames-per-second ratio. Last year, the reactions were mixed to the 48 frames per second presentation of The Hobbit, but viewers may have grown more used to it now. Also, you have to figure Peter Jackson and co. will hone their technique, making the visuals more palatable for dissenting types. The response should be very exciting!

The Hobbit Official Production Video 8

The cool thing about this video is I was one of the 6500 people that got to see The Hobbit panel at Comic-Con this year.  I’m glad you get to see what we saw and you get to feel the excitement of it all.

The Hobbit Panel At Comic-Con

The Hobbit will be coming to San Diego for the International Comic-Con!  There will be a Warner Bros panel that will most definitely include The Hobbit.  As is usually the case, however, they have not announced yet (and may not do so at all) who is going to appear on the panel.

Warner Bros and Legendary Entertainment have announced plans to bring three of their highly anticipated projects to San Diego Comic-Con International’s Hall H on Saturday, July 14th.

Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel, Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim will make up that panel that is expected to occupy a three to four hour block on Saturday morning, July 14th. There’s no word yet which cast or crew members will be in attendance.

It’s no surprise that The Hobbit will be a major part of Comic-Con this year, and it will probably make a reappearance again next year, considering that Peter Jackson does love us at the Con.  Updates and pictures of the panel will be posted that weekend, so follow us via Twitter for when that happens.  The panel is sure to have a big, big crowd.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey will be released in theaters on December 14, 2012. The second film, titled The Hobbit: There and Back Again, is slated for release the following year on December 13, 2013. Both movies are directed by Peter Jackson (Lord of the Rings Trilogy) and star Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins, Ian McKellen as Gandalf, Cate Blanchett as Galadriel, Andy Serkis as Gollum, Elijah Wood as Frodo, plus Ian Holm, Christopher Lee, Hugo Weaving, Evangeline Lilly, Richard Armitage, Orlando Bloom, Stephen Hunter, Benedict Cumberbatch, Bret McKenzie, James Nesbitt, Luke Evans and others.
