Steven Spielberg is set to thrill film fans after announcing he will make his debut appearance at the legendary Comic-Con event in California later this month (Jul11).
The revered moviemaker has been behind some of cinema's most successful films but has never participated in the renowned San Diego-based comic book and movie convention, which has been held annually since 1970.
He has now confirmed he will be part of a panel at the upcoming event on 22 July (11) to discuss his new project The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn in front of 6,000 attendees.
The Jaws legend will also be the recipient of the convention's Inkpot Award, which is given out annually to professionals in the field of pop culture.
