We’re still hashing out the details of the SDCC 2013 schedule, but we’re aiming to kick things off with some sort of mysterious “Godzilla” event and a steady stream of photos from the action during Preview Night.
We’ll spend the majority of Thursday with Summit Entertainment, which has big plans for two highly anticipated properties – the book-to-film adaptations of “Ender’s Game” and “Divergent.” Later that afternoon, we’re chatting with Karolina Wydra of “Europa Report” after which we’ll take you inside the “Insidious 2” Fan Experience.
We’ve got high hopes for squeezing in some TV on Friday, as we’re aiming to cover “Nikita’s” final SDCC appearance and “Orphan Black’s” first. On the film front, Friday belongs entirely to Sony Pictures. We’ll be covering the studio’s trio of press conferences including “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2,” “RoboCop,” and “The Amazing Spider-Man 2.” Once all of the action at the Hilton Bayfront wraps up, it’s off to get down and dirty, trying to keep myself from getting infected, and hopefully avoid tripping and falling, at The Walking Dead Escape.
The goal is to make it into Hall H on Saturday so we can catch the debut of the “Hunger Games: Catching Fire” trailer alongside the presentation for “I, Frankenstein.” After that, there’s Entertainment Weekly’s Women Who Kick Ass panel, featuring Michelle Rodriguez, Tatiana Maslany, Danai Gurira, and more. From there we’ll likely go back into press conference mode to cover the Warner Bros. line-up, which includes “Gravity,” “The LEGO Movie,” “Godzilla,” “300: Rise of an Empire,” and “Seventh Son,” and then 20th Century Fox’s films, “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes,” “The Wolverine,” and whatever that surprise entry may be!
Rather than head home early Sunday, this year I’m catching a redeye back to New York, giving me the opportunity to squeeze in some Sunday coverage, the highlight of which is bound to be the “Breaking Bad” panel.
The crazy thing is, this only scratches the surface of what we could get to in the next five days. Things are bound to get shuffled around, swapped, and added, so keep an eye on the ShockYa homepage, our SDCC summary piece which goes live on Wednesday upon arrival, and my own personal Twitter feed to get all the latest as it comes in.
