SDCC 2011: "Twilight"

Was it worth the wait?
Fans were camped in line since Monday in order to get seats for Thursday's Twilight Panel in Hall H. Apparently, the three main leads of the new movie were going to appear in person. However, I wanted to see the panel for Prometheus but in order to get a seat I would have to suffer through Twilight: Breaking Dawn. When I got in line for Hall H about 2 hours before the doors were to open, I was expecting to see the line stretching behind the convention center. Instead, I found it to be quite short, about 500 people in line, and by Comic-Con measurements, that's nothing. When the doors opened and we were allowed inside the cavernous Hall H (which can seat 6,500 people), the room only filled to less than half its capacity. All the girls who stood in line since Monday had occupied the seats in the entire front section. Much of the back section was empty. It wasn't until after the panel that the room began to fill.
