SATURDAY 23RD JULY 2016

A sneak peek at upcoming releases.

September 8, 2016 marks the 50th anniversary of Star Trek’s first broadcast. What began as a TV show became a window into the future and a reflection of our greatest hopes and dreams. By envisioning a world where technology and science improve the human condition, and where peace and unity transcend conflict and separation, Star Trek has inspired children, parents, engineers, scientists, entrepreneurs, and viewers around the world. It’s also spurred countless real-world innovations and “firsts,” giving name to a Space Shuttle (the Enterprise), launching one of the first and most passionate worldwide fandoms, and featuring the first interracial kiss on American network television. Join William Shatner, Scott Bakula, Michael Dorn, Jeri Ryan, and Brent Spiner for a conversation moderated by Bryan Fuller, executive producer of the new Star Trek television series coming to CBS All Access, following its network premiere in 2017.

Writer/director James Cameron (Avatar) and producer Gale Anne Hurd (The Walking Dead) join cast members Sigourney Weaver (Avatar), Bill Paxton (True Lies), Lance Henriksen (Millennium), Michael Biehn (The Terminator), and Paul Reiser (Red Oaks) for a look back at the iconic science fiction classic in honor of the film’s 30th anniversary.

A discussion among fierce, fearless actresses Morena Baccarin (Gotham), Melissa Benoist (Supergirl), Lucy Lawless (Ash vs Evil Dead), Tatiana Maslany (Orphan Black) and Connie Nielsen (Wonder Woman), who open up about the power and privilege of playing women that redefine the rules and refuse to yield.

Marvel Studios president and producer Kevin Feige and special guests provide an inside look at the ever expanding Marvel Cinematic Universe.

What if you had a panel and the audience didn’t show up? Kevin Smith can tell you what it’s like: Last year, the clown prince of Comic-Con saw thousands of people abandon his annual Hall H talk for a once-in-a-lifetime outdoor Star Wars concert. But the plucky, portly director and podcaster is back to tell silly stories and talk about his new movie Yoga Hosers, his AMC Network shows Comic Book Men and Geeking Out, directing an episode of The Flash for The CW, his forthcoming Buckaroo Banzai adaptation, and the Mallrats sequel that’s gonna be a TV series! You can’t miss this perennial Hall H highlight (unless there’s something way better going on at the same time, like a Star Wars concert).
