I have been trying to figure out if The Host is going to be at the San Diego Comic Con (SDCC) for a while now. I have contacted the PR group representing Open Road Films and have never gotten anything back that is definitive other than “We will let you know.” The PR group representing Open Road Films at SDCC sent out a letter to the press two days ago saying that Hit and Run and End of Watch are going to be there. Nothing was in the letter about The Host.
So at this point, the answer is no. This does not mean that there will not be any promotional materials floating around for the film at SDCC, but I don’t think there will be a panel or teaser footage (cue the sad faces). There are eleven days until the preview night of SDCC begins, and a lot of the schedule has already been set in stone. Some of you may be thinking that they should just piggyback The Host on the Twilight panel and footage, but that would not be good business for Lionsgate/Summit.
If anything changes, I will let you know.
If anyone is going and spots anything related to The Host, please feel free to share. I am still on the press list for SDCC, but it is doubtful that I will be able to make it this year.
