20th Century Fox has released a new Let’s Be Cops red-band trailer for director Luke Greenfield’s (The Girl Next Door) upcoming comedy.  The film stars Jake Johnson and Damon Wayans Jr. as two friends who impersonate police officers using rented uniforms and a car purchased on eBay, but in the midst of all their fun they run into trouble with a dangerous Russian mobster.  I still haven’t really seen anything from the pic that makes it stand out as anything other than a pretty standard buddy cop comedy, but Johnson and Wayans Jr. are very funny guys who have terrific chemistry on New Girl, so hopefully that charisma makes the full feature worthwhile.

20th Century Fox has released a new Let’s Be Cops trailer.  Directed by Luke Greenfield’s (The Girl Next Door), the film stars Jake Johnson and Damon Wayans Jr. as two friends who impersonate police officers using rented uniforms and a car purchased on eBay, but in the midst of all their fun they run into trouble with a dangerous Russian mobster.  The film also stars Nina Dobrev, Rob Riggle, James D’Arcy, and Keegan-Michael Key.

Like I said in the intro to my CinemaCon video interview with Johnson and Wayans Jr., while Let’s Be Cops wasn’t on my radar when the movie was filming, everything I’ve seen so far makes me think we might have the sleeper comedy of the summer.  The movie looks really funny and I’m very happy it’s going to be a hard R comedy.  Johnson and Wayans Jr. told me the film is like an 80s movies with crazy comedy, nudity, and a 3rd act filled with action.  Check out the Let’s Be Cops trailer and let me know what you think.  Let’s Be Cops opens August 13th.

20th Century Fox has released the first trailer for director Luke Greenfield’s (The Girl Next Door) comedy Let’s Be Cops.  The film stars Jake Johnson and Damon Wayans Jr. as two friends who impersonate police officers using rented uniforms and a car purchased on eBay, but in the midst of all their fun they run into trouble with a dangerous Russian mobster.  This debut red-band trailer does a nice job of selling the comedy and chemistry of Johnson and Wayans Jr., who have shined on TV with standout roles in New Girl and Happy Endings, respectively (and now both are on New Girl).  The plot is mostly in the background and it remains to be seen whether it’s strong enough to carry the story to feature length, but for now the movie looks to be quite funny.

TOP 5: Fantastic Fest 2012 Coverage, LOOPER, THE AVENGERS Blu-ray, THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER, HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA

For the first time, I’m writing from the comfort of my newly remodeled “mancave” or, as my wife likes to lovingly refer to it, the “nerdcave”. For a space that used to be an attached garage/dungeon, I have to say that the end result is pretty cozy. I guess there really are no living quarters that a substantial amount of time, money, and framed movie prints can’t fix. Now, if only I could find a way to fit and/or afford a mini-fridge, classic stand-up arcade games (i.e. The Simpsons, and X-Men), theater-style seating, and a projection screen that comes down from the ceiling via hand-clap command, I may finally be able to fulfill my dream of never leaving home again.

All praises of my new space aside, this week’s incarnation of the Top 5 brings a look back at our Fantastic Fest 2012 coverage, Looper interviews with writer/director Rian Johnson, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Emily Blunt, The Avengers Blu-ray interviews with members of the pic’s visual effects team, The Perks of Being a Wallflower interviews with Emma Watson, writer/director Stephen Chbosky and more, and Hotel Transylvania interviews with Andy Samberg and Selena Gomez just to name a few. As you might expect, a brief recap and link to each is holding down the fort after the jump.

Nina Dobrev Talks THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER and THE VAMPIRE DIARIES Season 4

Nina-Dobrev-Perks-of-Being-a-Wallflower-interview-slice

Now playing in limited release and expanding into more theaters tomorrow is Stephen Chbosky’s fantastic movie The Perks of Being a Wallflower (watch the trailer here).  Chbosky wrote the adaptation of his own novel and also directed the feature.  In the film, Logan Lerman plays an introverted high school freshman who finds acceptance in two senior students, played by Emma Watson and Ezra Miller.  The film also stars Mae Whitman, Kate Walsh, Dylan McDermott, Nina Dobrev, and Paul Rudd.  Over the past few years I’ve seen a number of coming of age movies.  Usually they play out the same way and touch on the same themes.  What makes Perks so special is that it tackles serious issues with honestly and believability.  In addition, all the actors are great and it’s Lerman’s best work to date.  I strongly recommend checking it out.

At the Toronto International Film Festival Perks premiered to glowing reviews.  Shortly before the premiere I spoke to Nina Dobrev.  We talked about her reaction to reading the script, how she got cast, her preparation process, how similar she is to her character, and what fans can look forward to in The Vampire Diaries season 4.  Hit the jump to watch.

The Vampire Diaries, the CW’s answer to HBO’s vampires and more show, begins its fourth season this October.  While nowhere near as graphic as True Blood, the show does feature plenty of fun for fans of the genre.   In three seasons so far, fans have witnessed some supernatural shenanigans, multiple make out sessions, and lots of brooding.  At this year’s Comic-Con, fans and press got a chance to ask the cast questions during a panel in Ballroom 20 and via one on one and roundtable interviews.

Collider got to speak one on one with cast members Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley, Ian Somerhalder, Michael Trevino, and Zach Roerig.  While all remained tight lipped about potential spoilers for the season, they did speak freely about where their characters were headed, what else they were working on, and what would happen if they met up with the cast of True Blood in an alley.  Check out all five video interviews after the jump.

vampire-diaries-season-3-slice

On the last episode of The CW drama series The Vampire Diaries, called “Dangerous Liaisons,” viewers learned that the mother of the Original vampires is not quite as loving of her children as she appears. With her nefarious plan set in motion, thanks in part to Elena Gilbert (Nina Dobrev) and the blood of the doppleganger, things are sure to get more intense, leading up to the Season 3 finale.

During a recent interview to hint at what’s to come, executive producer/writer Julie Plec talked about the Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Damon (Ian Somerhalder) love triangle that Elena is stuck in, exploring Klaus’ (Joseph Morgan) humanity, whether or not any of the Originals will survive what’s been set in motion, where the Klaus and Caroline (Candice Accola) relationship could be headed and where that leaves Tyler (Michael Trevino), the unique position that Matt (Zach Roerig) is in as one of the only humans left in Mystic Falls,  what’s in store for Bonnie (Kat Graham) and her mother, how Alaric’s (Matthew Davis) ring failing is going to be causing some problems, that Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) will return before the end of the season, and that viewers cannot be certain about the fate of anyone. Check out what she had to say after the jump.
