Comic-Con 2012: Biggest movie panels and stars
The biggest events at Comic-Con nowadays are the star-studded movie panels. As masses of attendees descend upon the annual mega-conference, starting Thursday in San Diego, CA, final preparations are being made for some of the gathering's most buzz-worthy film panels to date. Here are the top movies to look out for from this year's Comic-Con:
'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2'
Who Will Be There: Self-proclaimed "Twi-hards" and LOTS of them. Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner and filmmakers will be answering questions, sharing extra juicy tidbits, and are rumored to have something extra special up their sleeve to commemorate the final "Twilight" installment.
What To Look For: A sneak peek of "Breaking Dawn - Part 2" will be shown along with exclusive footage from the upcoming film.
Panel time: Thursday, 12:45 p.m.

'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey'
Who Will Be There: We hear Elijah Wood, Andy Serkis and director Peter Jackson will be on hand, but the rest remains a bit of a mystery.
What To Look For: Among the most-anticipated panels, with many secrets yet to be revealed, "Hobbit"-watchers thirst for news from Middle Earth should be sufficiently quenched: Wood has hinted at something big for Saturday's event and extended clips are expected to be shown.
Panel time: Saturday, 2:30 p.m.
