Twilight Will Be Sitting Out This Year's San Diego Comic Con image
Summit Entertainment has sent along their official schedule for panels at this year's San Diego Comic Con, and there's a huge surprise in there: Twilight is sitting out this year. With Breaking Dawn not set to start shooting until fall and Eclipse dominating theaters, perhaps the studio figured it wasn't worth the expense and headache of flying the cast out there and wrangling 5,000 screaming teenage girls in black "Team Edward" T-shirts. Or maybe they figured they'd give the rest of us and our eardrums a year off. Either way, the hardcore nerds are going to have to find something else to complain about this year, since Edward and Bella and Jacob are staying home.

Instead, Summit will be showing off two new projects that are much more in the male-centric wheelhouse. Up first on Thursday afternoon is a Hall H panel for Red, the graphic novel adaptation starring Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman and Helen Mirren. You may also remember it from the trailer as "the movie where Helen Mirren shoots a bunch of huge guns." Yeah, you know you're excited. The second panel comes Friday morning for Drive Angry 3D, the movie in which Nic Cage drives a car and kills a bunch of people to track down his daughter.

Check out the full panel information below, and stay tuned-- a lot of Comic Con announcements are set to go out today. This is just the beginning!

Thursday, July 22, 2010 – 2:15pm – 3:15pm – Hall H:
RED – Stars Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren, Karl Urban, and Mary Louise Parker join director Robert Schwentke and Red’s graphic novel writer Warren Ellis as they debut the final trailer exclusively to Comic-Con 2010, before it’s ever in theaters, and answer questions about bringing this well known D.C. Comics graphic novel to the big screen. Based on the graphic novel by Ellis, Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman, John Malkovich and Helen Mirren star in this explosive action-comedy in which former CIA top agents become the Agency’s top targets because of the secrets they know.

Friday, July 23, 2010 – 10:30am – 11:00am – Hall H:
DRIVE ANGRY 3D – In a Comic-Con exclusive, stars of the film including Nicolas Cage, and Amber Heard as well as director Patrick Lussier will debut footage from the high-octane, blood-spattered road trip through hell. In this newest action horror shot in 3D, a vengeful father hunts down the people who brutally killed his daughter and kidnapped her baby.

In addition to the exciting panels, Summit Entertainment will once again have a booth set up in the Grand Hall at Comic-Con where the studio will showcase titles from its upcoming slate. Those who stop by will be able to answer a call at the Summit phone booth to speak live with Summit filmmakers and talent or customize a t-shirt at the live t-shirt press. In addition, the prize wheel never stops spinning with thousands of promotional giveaways and exclusive prizes to win throughout the convention!
