Couldn't make it to San Diego this year? No worries - that's why we're here.
The experience at Comic-Con is different for everyone -- even every reporter -- so instead of just running through the straightforward movie-related highlights, we thought we'd give you a little more color and share some of our favorite moments.
Andrew Garfield starting an answering service? Check! Kristen Stewart talking about Taylor Lautner's booty shakin'? Double check! Seeing unexpected parts of Colin Farrell and Jason Momoa? Oh, yeah, it happened.
The Honeymoon in 'Breaking Dawn' Looks Hawt
Seeing Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner trading quips was indeed a treat, but it was the lengthy clip from Bella and Edward's honeymoon in "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1" that really had the fans squealing. From Edward carrying his bride over the threshold and awkward looks exchanged bedside to the newlyweds individually stripping down, hearts throughout San Diego were racing. Read our full description here.
Conan the Barbarian Gives Us a Striptease
During a roundtable interview with "Conan the Barbarian" stars Rachel Nichols and Jason Momoa, we dared to ask Nichols what should bring the ladies to the theater to see this film. "Jason's abs," she said, quite plainly, before going into a deeper answer. Thankfully, Jason interrupted her. "I have four reasons for you: one, two, three," he said, unbuttoning the three of the four buttons on his already half-open shirt. We're not sure why he stopped, but, yes, we're still a little salty about it. He also shared Arnold Schwarzenegger's reaction to his movie, but that wasn't nearly as revealing.
Nicolas Cage Explains the Undead
"In 'Drive Angry,' I was playing a living dead man and this is a living man who turns into a demon," Cage said during a press conference for "Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance." "It's totally different. A living dead man has to be a little bit more dead, whereas a living man who turns into a ghost is still very alive when he's living." Okay. Thanks for clearing that up, Nic.
Dominic Monaghan Is a Close-Talker
We spoke to "Millionaire Tour" star Monaghan -- you may remember him from such epic blockbusters as the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy and a little TV show called "Lost" -- and talked about his exclusion from "The Hobbit," his ex-girlfriend Evangeline Lilly's inclusion in "The Hobbit," and what he'd do if he were President Obama. All from a close, close distance. Really close.
'Cowboys & Aliens' Take Over
Saturday night saw the biggest movie premiere in Comic-Con history, with the gang from "Cowboys and Aliens" staging their big event at the San Diego Civic Theater. Before the red carpet was rolled out for the likes of Daniel Craig, Olivia Wilde, Harrison Ford and Jon Favreau, fans had the chance to win tickets by finding golden bricks throughout the city and the Convention Center floor. And those big winners – as well as team NextMovie – weren't disappointed. The party following the movie was as big as the stars of the movie and the corn pudding with the trio of sauces was epic.
Sign Us Up For the Andrew Garfield Answering Service
In today's technology age, some reporters use their iPhones to record interviews and the like. During the press conference for "The Amazing Spider-Man," one of those phones rang… and Andrew Garfield answered it. "Hello. Hey, this isn't Rob. It's Andrew, Andrew Garfield. This is a press conference for 'The Amazing Spider-Man' at Comic-Con. No problem. Bye," he said and hung up. "Rob, a Rob – someone called. A 323 number." Oh, how we wish we'd been on the other line of that call. Andrew also shared what former Spidey Tobey Maguire thought of his casting.
Taylor Lautner Can Really Shake His Booty
During the "Breaking Dawn" press conference, one reporter asks the Vampire, the Wolf and the girl who loves them to expose a backstage secret. Robert Pattinson comes out of the experience unscathed, but admits that Stewart is a Cooking Channel addict, while Stewart saucily announces that Lautner has secret sweet dance moves: "He can move his hips better than I could ever dream."
We Sorta Wish 'Tintin' Were Live-Action
During "The Adventures of Tintin" panel, Steven Spielberg exhibited an early test reel of "Tintin" created by Peter Jackson's company Weta, starring Jackson himself alongside a CGI version of Tintin's dog snowy. We understand the point was to underscore the seamlessness of creating a whole digital world rather than inserting one animated creature into a live scene... but it looked REALLY cool. And take it from us, there is nothing funnier than a drunk digital dog.
'Snow White and the Huntsman' Looks AWESOME
The stars and director of Universal's "Snow White" retelling debuted a rough trailer and the first official images from the movie -- and it looks more badass than we could ever have hoped. Charlize Theron makes a beautiful wicked queen, Sam Claflin has dimples we could drown in and Kristen Stewart looks battle-ready as Snow White herself. Also, the bantering between K.Stew and Theron had us pumped for months of fun media appearances together.
Stan Lee Lays the Smackdown on Batman
During a presentation for Activision's new "Spider-Man" and "X-Men" videogames, the comic book icon declared, "Eat your heart out, Batman!"
We Wish We Could Drive to 'Drive' Right Now
Holy, wow. The trailer and a set of clips from the Ryan Gosling and Carey Mulligan flick made their debut in Hall H and we haven't stopped thinking about them. One two-minute clip featured one of the hottest on-camera smooches we've seen in ages and one of the bloodiest kill scenes. Our adrenaline is pumping just thinking about it – watch the new trailer and see for yourself.
Colin Farrell Stops Panel For an Autograph, Shows Some Skin
One gutsy fan halted the "Fright Night" panel by shouting out a request for Farrell's nameplate, and was rewarded by Farrell leaving his seat, calling her up to the edge of the stage, bending down to sign it and showing a little "plumber's crack" in the process. Big win for everyone.
Hall H Sings Happy Birthday to Patrick Stewart
It seems impossible, but "Star Trek: Next Generation" and "X-Men" star Patrick Stewart had never been to San Diego Comic-Con. His first visit was for the "Dorothy of Oz" panel, and he was well-rewarded for the effort. Co-star Megan Hilty led thousands of fans seated in Hall H in a rousing rendition of Happy Birthday for Stewart, who celebrated his anniversaire just two days earlier.
Nathan Fillion, Man of Many Faces
Last year, we spotted the "Serenity" and "Castle" star going incognito throughout San Diego with a fake moustache. This year's laughable disguise? A red bandana tied around his face, just below his eyes. What a thug, that guy.
Aziz Ansari Stops the Collective Heart of Hall H
"30 Minutes or Less" star Aziz Ansari answers a fan question about the "Amazing Spider-man" trailer by suggesting that he liked it, but not as much as the 15 minutes of advance "The Dark Knight Rises" footage that screened at the Con that morning. The whole hall gasps in unison, Ansari deadpans that he also loved the "Inception 2" panel, and everyone finally gets the joke. Amazing.
Stars Tweet Their Comic-Con Pics Too
While eating dinner Thursday night, we were lucky enough to be sitting across from "Castle" and "Quantum of Solace" star, Stana Katic. As we were marveling at how gorgeous she is (really, it's ridiculous), she got up and introduced herself to the other table next to us and asked if she could take her picture with the man with cheetah hair. "Thinking of a new Beckett hairdo while hangin out here @ sdcc," she tweeted alongside the pic.
Move Over, James Cameron. Ridley Scott May Be the New King of 3-D
Fans went wild for the small taste of "Prometheus" shown during the Fox presentation in Hall H, and not just for the brief second of Charlize Theron's naked push-ups. Director Ridley Scott was beamed into the theater via video conference, where he explained that the film has "the DNA of the original 'Alien,' but that's as far as it goes." He also confessed to falling in love… with 3-D. "I'll never work without 3-D again," he said. "Even for small dialogue scenes."
Chris Evans Brings His All-Americanness to 'Captain America'
Thursday morning's special screening of "Captain America: The First Avenger" was made all the more special as it was introduced by the good Captain himself! In true Steve Rogers fashion, Evans was humble and excited as he got everyone pumped for the first-ever public screening of Marvel's latest marvel. "I really love this movie, and I can't say that about every movie I've done," he said with a sly grin.
Spielberg Meets His Super-fan
During the "Adventures of Tintin" panel, a fan asked a question of director Steven Spielberg and producer Peter Jackson... while wearing a t-shirt that read "If possible I would love to meet Steven Spielberg just to shake his hand and say thank you very much." Naturally, Spielberg invited the gentleman onstage for a handshake and a picture -- taken by Jackson. It pays to dream big with your wardrobe. (And if that weren't enough, Spielberg also dropped hints about his upcoming "Jurassic Park" sequel. The gifts just kept coming.)
We Geeked Out Too
We steel ourselves for the movie stars, so, sometimes, when we interact with our favorite TV stars, we're just like any other fan. At the Summit party, our own Brooke Tarnoff kept circling the bar to get another glimpse at "Game of Thrones"'s little lothario, Peter Dinklage, and couldn't help but giggle as she introduced herself to "True Blood" hottie Alexander Skarsgard. Breanne L. Heldman nearly started crying while talking about "Friday Night Lights" with Jason Street himself, Scott Porter, and surprised "Smallville" and "V" star Laura Vandervoort when confessing to her freaky fandom over the blonde beauty's first project, Canadian show "Instant Star."
