'Terra Nova' debut hatches at Comic-Con

Comic-Con attendees took the first bite out of "Terra Nova."

During a panel Saturday, the cast and crew of the upcoming Fox dinosaur drama unveiled the first half of the two-hour premiere, which is scheduled to debut Sept. 26.

The footage featured the Shannon family traveling from an overpopulated 2149 to a pre-historic past where they encountered a giant centipede, band of renegades, plant-eating Brachiosaurus and one hungry T-Rex.

Stephan Lang, who stars as the leader of the Terra Nova settlement, flew from Australia, where the show is currently being filmed, to appear at the pop-culture convention. After the crowd of more than 4,000 roared when one human was devoured by a dinosaur, Lang joked there might be "a mandate from the network there will be one eating per week."
