The Let’s Be Cops gang swarmed Comic-Con to promote their mistaken-identity comedy. Damon Wayans Jr., Rob Riggle, and Keegan Michael Key came to represent their film while co-star Jake Johnson was busy filming a little movie you might have heard of, Jurassic World.
Nina Dobrev, who joked that this is “a boy’s movie,” joined the trio of funny men at the Comic-Con panel after the boys wrapped their Nerd HQ “Conversations for a Cause” fan event where donations to charity get fans an up-close-and-personal Q&A session with the stars.
In the comedy, pair of buddies (Johnson & Wayans Jr.) decides to dress up as cops for a costume party, only to be mistaken for real police officers. Taking advantage of the situation, they find themselves involved in a few hilarious situations and come face-to-face with a not-so-fake drug kingpin (Key).
Here’s the 5 things we learned about Let »

Laughs definitely weren't left off the table yesterday, when 20th Century Fox brought its slate of movies to Hall H for Comic-Con 2014. In tow was the upcoming comedy Let's Be Cops, which follows Jake Johnson and Damon Wayans Jr. as two loser friends who decide to impersonate police officers. Jake Johnson wasn't able to make it, as he was away shooting Jurassic World, which he teased in a special message to the crowd. But his on-screen partner, and New Girl co-star, was there... And we have an interview with Damon Wayans Jr. direct from the convention center floor.
It's the ultimate buddy cop movie except for one thing: they're not cops. When two struggling pals dress as police officers for a costume party, they become neighborhood sensations. But when these newly-minted "heroes" get tangled in a real life web of mobsters and dirty detectives, they must put their fake badges on the line. »
Once again, we have the fantastic, the indomitable, the flying-fingered Jeri Jacqui! on the transcripts!
Some good stuff from yesterday. Since I was on the Maze Runner set (report here), I've read the book and have been itching to see what Wes Ball made of it. They showed it to some fans earlier in the week and it got some good twitter buzz.
Let's check out what Fox offered yesterday at Sdcc!
Wes Ball (director)
James Dashner (author)
Will Poulter - Gally
Kaya Scodelario - Teresa
Dylan O’Brien - Thomas
Ralph Garman (Mod): Please welcome director Wes Ball, author James Dashner, Will Poulter, Kaya Scodelario and Dylan O’Brien. Dylan, as Thomas, an actor tends to want to use his environment etc. and you have none of those advantages with this character.
Dylan: Yes, there isn’t that much to go off of. Taking it in »
I had steered clear of Let’s Be Cops partially because I wasn’t that interested in the premise—a couple of guys impersonate cops and get into comic hijinks—but I was interested enough to where I didn’t want to spoil the jokes. It was part of a 20th Century Fox’s Comic-Con presentation, so I couldn’t avoid it any longer, but now they’ve piqued my interest. Hit the jump for my Let’s Be Cops Comic-Con panel recap. The moderator brought on actors Rob Riggle, Keegan Michael Key, Nina Dobrev, and Damon Wayans Jr. Jake Johnson is the co-lead with Wayans, but he couldn’t be here because he’s in New Orleans shooting Jurassic World. However, we did get an amusing video message where we see him lounging in a hotel room and strongly implying he just paid for kinky sex. We’re told »

The new red band clip for 20th Century Fox's highly anticipated action-comedy, Let's Be Cops, is here. Check out this hilarious scene, starring Damon Wayans Jr. and Jake Johnson as two buddies who decide to impersonate the police. A new squad car and a couple of freshly printed stickers from Kinkos help pull this off quite convincingly, as they take a tour through their neighborhood, where one of the neighbors can't believe what he is seeing. "Isn't that the guy who took a..."

The full five-day schedule for this year's Comic-Con has now been announced, and over here at Digital Spy we're getting pretty damn excited to fly out to San Diego next week.
While there are a few surprising omissions from the movies programme - no Hunger Games, no Jurassic World, seemingly no Star Wars - there's still plenty here to get excited about. Below is the full schedule of movie panels.
Wednesday, July 23
Into the Storm screening (10pm, Gaslamp Theater)
The Hobbit's Richard Armitage and The Walking Dead's Sarah Wayne Callies star in Warner Bros' disaster thriller, which follows a group of high school students who document a devastating tornado strike.

Benedict Cumberbatch will make his Comic-Con debut to promote upcoming Madagascar spinoff Penguins of Madagascar, in which he plays a debonair wolf named Classified. He'll be joined by co-stars John Malkovich and Tom McGrath, »
One of Comic-Con's worst-kept secrets was confirmed by Comic-Con International today. Daniel Radcliffe, who never made it to San Diego during his "Harry Potter" years, will finally visit the pop culture fest in conjunction with a panel for the new indie comedy "Horns." That's big news in and of itself, but besides a massive two-hour presentation from 20th Century Fox, Friday is going to be pretty weak on the movie side. Most of the excitement Friday will actually come from the "Game of Thrones" and "Walking Dead" panels that are part of the Hall H mix. That being said, here's a rundown of Comic-Con's Friday offerings. "Horns" and "Everly" When: 3:00-4:00 Pm Where: Hall H Who: Radcliffe, Hayek Lowdown: Radius-twc will bring "Horns" with Radcliffe, Juno Temple, director Alexandre Aja and novelist Joe Hill. In an intriguing surprise, Salma Hayek will also preview the new thriller "Everly." [Incorrectly noted it was an animated film when first published.] 20th »

Last night a rumour emerged that 20th Century Fox would be bringing the cast of The Fantastic Four to San Diego for Comic-Con, but the studio has now released details of its Hall H panel for Sdcc on Friday, July 25th and Marvel’s First Family are nowhere to be seen:
20th Century Fox Comic-Con Presentation
4:20Pm – 6:20Pm in Hall H
Let’S Be Cops
Release: August 13, 2014
It’s the ultimate buddy cop movie except for one thing: they’re not cops. When two struggling pals dress as police officers for a costume party, they become neighborhood sensations. But when these newly-minted “heroes” get tangled in a real life web of mobsters and dirty detectives, they must put their fake badges on the line.

When the full Thursday schedule for Comic-Con 2014 was announced today, several studios such as Paramount and DreamWorks Animation did not reveal which movies they are presenting in San Diego. 20th Century Fox is trying a more direct approach, announcing that they will present Let's Be Cops, The Maze Runner, The Book of Life, Kingsman: The Secret Service and Hitman: Agent 47 during their Hall H panel on Friday, July 25, although the studio's highly-anticipated superhero reboot The Fantastic Four was not included.
The superhero reboot was rumored earlier today to be a part of 20th Century Fox's panel. Of course, it's still possible that cast members Michael B. Jordan (Johnny Storm - The Human Torch), Miles Teller (Reed Richards - Mr. Fantastic), Kate Mara (Sue Storm - The Invisible Woman), Jamie Bell (Ben Grimm - The Thing) and Toby Kebbell (Victor von Doom - Doctor Doom) may surprise the Hall H crowd by showing up unscheduled, »

Not long ago, Dave Franco was just an A-list actor's D-list little brother, being bullied in a 2008 Funny or Die video called "Acting With James Franco." Dave wanted to act, too, but he was stuck in the big, weird shadow of James, who was balancing high-profile roles with poetry, nudity and crazy art films. Onscreen, Dave's good looks got him typecast as a clean-cut prick. He played "Greg the Soccer Player" in 2007's Superbad and a couple of forgettable bit parts on TV's Greek and Privileged.

The voting body that makes up the Academy of Motion Picture Arts in Sciences announced the newest slate of members it has invited to join the prestigious group, who, among other things, are the people responsible for determining Academy Award nominees and winners.
Each year, the Academy gets its share of flack around awards season when the hip, indie flicks get shut out of traditional categories with many lamenting the so-called “boys club” and “old white men” that make up the majority of the membership body. The Academy certainly looks to be freshening up its image with the latest crop of member inductees who are younger and more diverse than seemingly ever.
New Academy members cover a multitude of categories including actors, directors, editors, musicians and composers, casting directors, producers, documentarians, and more groups that cover all branches of the awards categories.
Making the cut this year are recent nominees and winners Lupita Nyong’o, »

The Academy has announced the new class of invited members for 2014 and, as is typical, many of which are among last year's nominees, which includes Barkhad Abdi, Michael Fassbender, Sally Hawkins, Mads Mikkelsen, Lupita Nyong'o and June Squibb in the Actors branch not to mention curious additions such as Josh Hutcherson, Rob Riggle and Jason Statham, but, okay. The Directors branch adds Jay and Mark Duplass along with Jean-Marc Vallee, Denis Villeneuve and Thomas Vinterberg. I didn't do an immediate tally of male to female additions or other demographics, but at first glance it seems to be a wide spread batch of new additions on all fronts. The Academy is also clearly attempting to aggressively bump up the demographics as this is the second year in a row where they have added a large number of new members, well over the average of 133 new members from 2004 to 2012. As far as »

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has announced its list of actors, filmmakers, and others involved in the moviemaking industry that have been invited to join the Academy’s membership. 271 artists made the cut this year, ranging from recent winners and nominees like Lupita Nyong’o and Michael Fassbender to more eclectic choices like Rob Riggle, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Josh Hutcherson, and even Jason Statham. Chris Rock also finally gets a ballot years after hosting the ceremony, and Clark Gregg will bring some Marvel pedigree into the fold. On the filmmaking side, brothers Mark and Jay Duplass, David Gordon Green, Denis Villeneuve, and Gina Prince-Bythewood (The Secret Life of Bees) join the directors branch, while Dp Sean Bobbitt (12 Years a Slave) has been added to the cinematographers group. Eddie Vedder and Pharrell Williams (sans hat) are also now Academy members should they accept their invitations. The full list is still disappointingly short on females, »

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is extending invitations to join the organization to 271 artists and executives who have distinguished themselves by their contributions to theatrical motion pictures.
Those who accept the invitations will be the only additions to the Academy’s membership in 2014.
“This year’s class of invitees represents some of the most talented, creative and passionate filmmakers working in our industry today,” said Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs. “Their contributions to film have entertained audiences around the world, and we are proud to welcome them to the Academy.”
The 2014 invitees are:

Michael Fassbender and Lupita Nyong’o of 12 Years a Slave were two of the 271 artists and industry leaders invited to become members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, which determines nominations and winners at the annual Oscars. The entire list of Academy membership—which numbers about 6,000—isn’t public information so the annual invitation list is often the best indication of the artists involved in the prestigious awards process. It’s worth noting that invitations need to be accepted in order for artists to become members; some artists, like two-time Best Actor winner Sean Penn, have declined membership over the years. »

Pop quiz: What do Chris Rock, Claire Denis, Eddie Vedder and Josh Hutcherson all have in common? Answer: They could all be Oscar voters very soon. The annual Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences invitation list always makes for interesting reading, shedding light on just how large and far-reaching the group's membership is -- or could be, depending on who accepts their invitations. This year, 271 individuals have been asked to join AMPAS, meaning every one of them could contribute to next year's Academy Awards balloting -- and it's as diverse a list as they've ever assembled. Think the Academy consists entirely of fusty retired white dudes? Not if recent Best Original Song nominee Pharrell Williams takes them up on their offer. Think it's all just a Hollywood insiders' game? Not if French arthouse titans Chantal Akerman and Olivier Assayas join the party. It's a list that subverts expectation at every turn. »
