We’ve started a new, quasi-regular column on the Blog titled “Under The Tents”. The title is symbolic, as it’s representative of the times we all line up under the tents waiting for those big moments to happen inside Hall H or Ballroom 20.
Here’s the stuff you might have missed for today:
- There will be an exclusive trailer for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire at Comic-Con this year, according to this tweet from Film Trailer editor Jake Thomas.
[UPDATE] This tweet was removed, and is believed was a fake. However, it is expected The Hunger Games: Catching Fire will have a Hall H panel this year, possibly on Thursday. Stay tuned for official announcements.
