PLEASE tell me you all are going to do the exact same thing as last year, as in have that live broadcast thing where we can ask yall questions and what not... That was so RAD! And Hopefully they show some, if ANY(if they have filmed a bit) of Super-8... I have NO idea why no one asked JJ Abrams when he was interviewing Wright... Unless of course i missed something but everyone seemed to be thinking of Star Trek 2 at the time... Thanks Joblo!

Hell Yeah!

I must agree, the only thing that sounds interesting enough to see is the TRON panel. I also think the Entertainment Weekly discussion with JJ Abrams and Joss Whedon sounds cool... from a filmmaking stand point
