Thursday at Comic Con Delivers with Trolls, Teen Wolf and Dark Matter

Thursday is the real first day of Comic Con, and the best way to kick off a con is in Hall H. If you're going to do Hall H and you don't want to deal with the lines, Thursday is a great day to do it. Dreamworks Animation Theatrical kicked off Hall H this year. Trolls was the first feature presented. Chris Hardwick was on hand to moderate, and stars Anna Kendrick, Justin Timberlake, and Christopher Mintz-Plasse, along with director Mike Mitchell, co-director Walt Dohrn, and producer Gina Shay were all on hand to chat about the film. Music is going to be a huge part of the movie, and it looks cute to boot. Luckily it seems that Anna Kendrick and Justin Timberlake have better screen presence, because their chemistry was off and lacking in person. Maybe the pair were having an off day. The surprise of the morning came with Boss Baby where Alec Baldwin made his Comic Con debut.

Other highlights from thursday included running into Maze Runner author James Dashner and Teen Wolf's Tyler Posey walking about. When Teen Wolf took the stage, they broke a lot of hearts, and not just because our favorite Dylan was absent. Sorry Dylan Sprayberry, Dylan O'Brien will always be our #1. Tyler Posey, Holland Roden, Dylan Sprayberry, Khylin Rhambo, Cody Christian, JR Bourne, and Ian Bohen joined series creator Jeff Davis as he announced that season 6 would be the final season. The good news is that season 6 will be a two parter. But the panel wasn't all dreary, nothing is dreary when Tyler Posey is onstage, as he recreated the water scene from flash dance, and singing Hungry Like A Wolf. Can we get one more Teen Wolf panel next year? I'm just not ready to say goodbye yet.

If you're at comic con this weekend, and find yourself on the convention floor, the Vikings Interactive Experience is one to well, experience. Last season we saw the Vikings take on Paris, and fail to capture the City. Ragnar's legendary life is nearing its end, and if you've read any of the history books, you'll know that he loses his life in a viper's pit. Between the rustling scales, and that distinct smell of snake, it really captures the feel of being in a real snake pit, thankfully without the feel of them wrapping around your feet. To get the full effect of the experience, shorts are a must. Fellow writer Jenevia joined me in the snake pit, but she didn't feel a thing because of her pants. I on the other hand got the full effect and earned my red drinking horn.

No day at Comic Con would be complete without a handful of signings. Like always, we'll be giving a few of them away, so be sure to check back. We visited the WB booth for the Teen Titans Go! Signing with Aaron Horvath, Pete Michail, Greg Cripes, Scott Menville, Khary Payton and Tara Strong. If you have kids with you, all the voice actors like to show off their talents, and its great to see their faces light up.

MTV brought Shannara for a signing, but only writer Terry Brooks and Austin Butler.

       Over at Lionsgate, Nerve did a signing Emma Roberts and Dave Franco.

Dark Horse brought the whole cast of Dark Matter for a signing. They're probably one of the most fun cast, teasing each other the entire time, and being at Dark Horse Comics you're able to take those sought after selfies. Melissa O'Neil, Anthony Lemke, Alex Mallari Jr., Jodelle Ferland, Melanie Liburd were all on hand to chat about season 2.

And that wraps Day one for us! See you here tomorrow for Day Two's recap!
