Well some studios are opting to not promote their films at Comic-Con this year, Summit announced this morning that they will be presenting a Breaking Dawn panel at this year’s con.
Though no further details were released, we can assume that the movie’s stars, Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and Taylor Lautner will be in attendance.
They also added a link to a New York Times article which, along with announcing that Twilight would be represented at Comic-Con, examines why the studios may be choosing not to participate in SDCC this year.
The article notes:
Warner’s main studio operation is bringing nothing [to this year’s Comic-Con]. Ditto Disney and DreamWorks. The Weinstein Company, a perennial presence, will also sit this one out. Even Marvel Entertainment, whose panel for “The Avengers” was a highlight of Comic-Con 2010, is on the fence about whether it will mount a major presentation.
But, that doesn’t mean this year’s con won’t feature content from any of the big studios, Universal is bringing Cowboys & Aliens, Paramount will bring footage from The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn, with a possible appearance by its director, Steven Spielberg, Twentieth Century Fox is expected to promote Rise of the Planet of the Apes, and Sony will present a first look at The Amazing Spider-Man.
If you can’t make it to this year’s Comic-Con, be sure to follow our coverage from July 21 to July 24!
