Lionsgate will bring exclusive video of “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” and “I, Frankenstein” to Comic-Con, the studio announced on Wednesday. Lionsgate is the first film studio to reveal its plans for the fan confab in July; its panel will take place Saturday July 20.
Lionsgate's decision to bring “The Hunger Games” is a no-brainer. The first film was one of the most successful films in recent years, catering to the often underserved but equally rabid female fans who swarm the San Diego Convention Center every summer.
Fans crave new footage and stars at each panel, and they’ll get the new footage. Lionsgate said it would provide an exclusive trailer and never-before-seen footage from "I, Frankenstein,” which stars Aaron Eckhart in an adaptation of Kevin Gevioux’s graphic novel.
Yet it remains unclear whether “Hunger Games” star Jennifer Lawrence will be in attendance, as Wednesday’s announcement merely said “talent from both films will be in attendance.”
A spokesperson for Lionsgate had no comment when TheWrap inquired, and Lawrence's publicist said it had yet to be determined as she is currently filming the latest X-Men movie, "Days of Future Past."
