There were so many panels in Hall H last week that we had to break them up into smaller articles to bring them all to you.  In this batch, you can check out the panels for The World’s End, Kick-Ass 2, The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, and Riddick.  The footage we were shown from Kick-Ass 2 and Riddick was immediately released by Universal following the panel, so you can check that out, and basically recreate the panel experience without the waiting-in-line-for-six-hours part.  If I had been waiting in line that long solely for those two panels, I would be so pissed.  For everyone else, enjoy!  As a side note, the most entertaining of these panels is The World’s End especially when Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg, and Nick Frost encounter “Button Lady”.

Hit the jump to check out the panels for The World’s End, Kick-Ass 2, The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, and Riddick, and click on the corresponding links for our recaps, which includes our thoughts on the footage we were shown.  Click here to see all of the TV panels, and click here to see the panels for X-Men: Days of Future Past, RoboCop, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, and Godzilla.

The World’s End (Opens August 23rd)

Here’s the official synopsis:

20 years after attempting an epic pub crawl, five childhood friends reunite when one of them becomes hellbent on trying the drinking marathon again.  They are convinced to stage an encore by mate Gary King, a 40-year old man trapped at the cigarette end of his teens, who drags his reluctant pals to their hometown and once again attempts to reach the fabled pub – The World’s End.  As they attempt to reconcile the past and present, they realize the real struggle is for the future, not just theirs but humankind’s.  Reaching The World’s End is the least of their worries.

Kick-Ass 2 (Opens August 16th)

Here’s the official synopsis:

Kick-Ass, Hit Girl and Red Mist return for the follow-up to 2010’s irreverent global hit: Kick-Ass 2. After Kick-Ass’ (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) insane bravery inspires a new wave of self-made masked crusaders, led by the badass Colonel Stars and Stripes (Jim Carrey), our hero joins them on patrol. When these amateur superheroes are hunted down by Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse)—reborn as The Mother F%&*^r—only the blade-wielding Hit Girl (Chloë Grace Moretz) can prevent their annihilation. With graduation looming and uncertain what to do, Dave decides to start the world’s first superhero team with Mindy. Unfortunately, when Mindy is busted for sneaking out as Hit Girl, she’s forced to retire. With no one left to turn to, Dave joins forces with Justice Forever, run by a born-again ex-mobster named Colonel Stars and Stripes.

The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones (Opens August 23rd):

Here’s the official synopsis:

Set in contemporary New York City, a seemingly ordinary teenager, Clary Fray (Lily Collins), discovers she is the descendant of a line of Shadowhunters, a secret cadre of young half-angel warriors locked in an ancient battle to protect our world from demons. After the disappearance of her mother (Lena Headey), Clary must join forces with a group of Shadowhunters, who introduce her to a dangerous alternate New York called Downworld, filled with demons, warlocks, vampires, werewolves and other deadly creatures. Based on the worldwide best-selling book series.

Riddick (Opens September 6th)

Here’s the official synopsis:

Riddick, the latest chapter of the groundbreaking saga that began with 2000’s hit sci-fi film Pitch Black and 2004’s The Chronicles of Riddick reunites writer/director David Twohy (A Perfect Getaway, The Fugitive) and star Vin Diesel (the Fast and Furious franchise, xXx). Diesel reprises his role as the antihero Riddick, a dangerous, escaped convict wanted by every bounty hunter in the known galaxy.

      Riddick is a character, perhaps THE character, I will always want to see more of. Wolverine is a close 2nd, but Riddick is just too much fun to watch.

  • Roy Batty

    how bout a panel we actually want to watch?

    Poor baby. I guess being in the presence of celebrities, surrounded by your peers, witnessing some fantastic moments, live, isn’t enough. You’ve gotta have it all to yourself.

      Yeah, Mr. Goldberg has a terrible attitude. I wish someone else from Collider would cover the topics I care about.
