Every year, Comic-Con descends on San Diego like some kind of swirling, overly crowded, superhero-infested tropical storm. Whether you've nabbed a pass or you're following it from the comfort of your home and/or cubicle, you'll drive yourself crazy trying to keep track of all of the news coming out of convention. And the sensory overload that accompanies the amazing sights and sounds in and around the convention center (especially in Hall H) is enough to fry your brain -- even after the fact.
So stop the insanity! Thanks to the miracle of Twitter, we've compiled a timeline of our most intriguing, important, jaw-dropping, and just plain cool movie-related moments from San Diego Comic-Con 2013.
It's kind of like a timeline of our descent into madness.
It begins... costumes... characters... touchy-feely celebrities... hard-to-read "Star Wars" icons.
At a press conference on Thursday, "Divergent" director Neil Burger left his mark.
Harrison Ford laughed in my face while I was interviewing him this morning. Not sure if it was "with" or "at" me, but, I will take it- Alex Suskind (@AlexJSuskind) July 18, 2013
"Divergent" stars Shailene Woodley and Theo James posed for us. "Ender's Game" had its time, and star Harrison Ford addressed the author's anti-gay marriage stance.
"Not everyone on this panel lives, so that's a loaded question. I'm excited." -Miles Teller on being psyched for the sequel. #DivergentSDCC- moviefone (@moviefone) July 18, 2013
And there was the awkward moment when...
Harrison Ford recalled reading that [Orson Scott Card] admitted defeat in his fight against gay marriage. Ford believes humanity won. #SDCC- moviefone (@moviefone) July 18, 2013
