There's no doubt that this year's Comic-Con has TV on the brain, but movie fans have nothing to worry about—because there's plenty of big screen scoop that will be coming out of San Diego.

Here, we're breaking down the big movie panels happening in Hall H.

Thursday, July 9

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2: We knew it was coming—it's the last time we'll be seeing Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson take the Comic-Con stage together to promote the blockbuster franchise. Not only will the studio be showing never-before-seen footage from the last Hunger Games flick, but Conan O'Brien will be moderating the Q&A with the cast and director. Here's hoping Lawrence brings along a pair of chopsticks.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens: What's there to say except that we have a feeling the Convention Center may implode when J.J. Abrams' new movie makes its debut in Hall H? Details about the panel are being kept under wraps (sadly, there will be no new trailer, according to Entertainment Weekly), but we better see hotter-than-hot Oscar Issac walk onto that stage. Will Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill be among the cast at Comic-Con? We think not because we imagine LucasFilms and Disney don't want them overshadowing their new stars.

Saturday July 11

Warner Bros. Presentation: This is going to be one big crazy superhero smashup with Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill joining director Zack Snyder on stage for a sneak peek at Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. They won't be alone. Also coming along are Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons, Holly Hunter and Gal Gadot.

Buzz is Warner Bros. does have plans to also promote Suicide Squad. (If they don't, we may have to send them a rat!)

Cavill will be doing double-duty with Warner Bros. He'll be on stage with Armie Hammer to promote The Man from U.N.C.L.E., Guy Ritchie's big screen adaptation of the 1960s spy series also starring Alicia Vikander and Elizabeth Debicki.

Hugh Jackman will make a return to Comic-Con for Pan with Garrett Hedlund, Levi Miller and director Joe Wright.

The Hateful Eight: Quentin Tarantino and most of the stars of his Civil War era Western will be on hand, including Kurt Russell, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Tim Roth, Walter Goggins, Michael Madsen, Bruce Dern and Demian Bichir.

Twentieth Century Fox

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Jane Austen meets The Walking Dead! This is too much—of a good thing, that is. Lily James and Hunger Games' Sam Riley are coming to San Diego for the Screen Gems flick. Also expected are Bella Heathcote, Douglas Booth, Jack Huston and Matt Smith.

Legendary Pictures Presentation: This will be Jessica Chastain's first time at Comic-Con. We can't wait to see her take a seat at the dais with her Crimson Peak co-star Tom Hiddleston and their director Guillermo Del Toro. Also on tap for Legendary will be Krampus and Warcraft, the adaptation of the popular video game franchise.

20th Century Fox Presentation: No official word on who will be showing up, but Fox's lineup will likely include X-Men: Apocalypse, Fantastic Four, Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials, The Martian, Hitman: Agent 47, Victor Frankenstein and Deadpool (hello, Ryan Reynolds!)
