The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 – a must-see for all, this panel will provide a sneak peek into the powerful final chapter of the epic “The Hunger Games” film franchise. Attendees will be shown never-before-seen footage from “Mockingjay – Part 2” and treated to a Q&A session with the cast and filmmakers, who will reveal details of the big screen finale.
The Last Witch Hunter – Vin Diesel is “The Last Witch Hunter” and he is all that stands between humanity and the combined forces of the most horrifying witches in history. Join the cast as they preview exclusive footage from “The Last Witch Hunter” before its worldwide debut.
We anticipate, that the exclusive footage being shown will not be available online afterwards, as it is designed for attendees only. (Bummer…I know!)
UPDATE: 6/11/15, 7:22 pm: We have confirmed with Lionsgate that the footage shown will “Ultimately” be available online. However there is no timetable for that at this time. So your definition of “Ultimately” is as good as ours. They could mean days, weeks, or even months.
