But for those who didn't have the time to wade through a sea of virgins and scumbag Hollywood types, the movie posters are now available online. The film features Aaron Eckhart as a Marine waging a guerrilla-style resistance movement after invaders "turn the streets of Los Angeles into a war zone," just like Laker fans do after their team wins a championship. But hopefully the aliens won't wear all that tacky purple and gold clothing while they trash the place. (Empire Online) See all the posters after the jump...

Allison Brie looked into my eyes. I also attended the jam-packed panel before the roundtables, but Vince at FilmDrunk took notes with such diligence that you should go to his write-up for those specifics. The entire cast was completely humbled and moved by how many people stood in a long-ass line to squeeze into a hotel ballroom to see them. One little tidbit I snagged is a video of Donald Glover and Danny Pudi singing "Somewhere Out There" from An American Tail live.

After the panel, a few members of the press (I guess that includes me?) sat down and shot off questions to the cast and writers round-robin-style. I asked you guys to tweet me some of your inquiries and I think I got most of them answered. Check out the highlights from the interviews below.

Big News:

They are working on a zombie themed episode for Halloween.

They’re doing a story where Shirley wants to make a movie about Jesus for her church and she enlists Abed’s help and it becomes Cyber Jesus. That’s the new Kick Puncher they’re been talking about: Cyber Jesus.

Fuckyeahjeffannie.com is a “Community” fan fiction site that exists.

Alison Brie, Joel McHale, Neil Goldman

Will we ever be seeing you guys in a tag together?

AB: The girls at first were like, “We want to be in one!” then after awhile we saw the popularity and it’s like oh no, I don’t want to be in the one tag where everyone’s like, “Booooo, bring the guys back!”

What’s it like juggling all your projects?

AB: I think Joel does a bit more juggling than me. My “Man Men” schedule doesn’t usually overlap. Joel’s doing a weekly gig. He’ll work on our show everyday and then on Thursdays he runs out for a few hours, does “The Soup,” comes back and continues shooting “Community.”

JM: And then I’m like, I should book some stand-up gigs to fill up some time.

When can we expect your 6 a.m. radio show, since you’re gunning for Seacrest?

AB: You could do a 4 a.m. radio show.

JM: That’s not a bad idea. I do have a paper route, and that kills me. What am I thinking? It doesn’t even pay that well. 

Did you guys see anything weird at Comic-Con?

JM: Master Chief from Halo asked, “Can I get a picture?” I said, “Yes, Master Chief.”

AB: I was surprised. I thought I’d see more costumes.

Donald Glover, Chevy Chase, Garrett Donovan

How is it being in front of the camera now as opposed to behind it?

DG: Everything is way easier. Writing is the fucking hardest job in the world.  On “30 Rock,” we were writing for like 25 hours sometimes.

CC: I started on “The Smother Brothers,” I started on “SNL” as their first head writer. I wrote for 12 years. Writing is a bitch. 

Do your improv skills ever take over on set?

CC: We clown around here and there between takes, but for the most part we stay with the script.

DG: My favorite thing to hear is, “Go crazy, Donald,” because then I can do whatever I want.

GD: Then we discover things these guys can do and I think that’s how we discovered your [Donald’s] crying.

DG: Someone was pointing that out to me today. They tweeted, “Man, is there something funnier than Donald crying?” I was like, you sound like my dad.

Have you seen anything off-putting at Comic-Con this year?

DG: Girls are not afraid around here. They’re like walking through a lion’s den covered in steaks.

CC: I had never seen anything like it. And I don’t understand it still. But God bless ‘em, they show up.

Yvette Nicole Brown, Danny Pudi, Russ Krasnoff

Were you thinking of walking around the Comic-Con floor in costume?

YNB: I’d love to come as Yoda. I love Yoda. 

DP: I’d like to be The Flash. Then I could just run around the floor. Just sprinting around the floor.

Favorite episodes?

RK: The pilot because that’s where all of this was created and these characters developed. I think back at that very fondly.

YNB: My favorite episode is Modern Warfare but my favorite Shirley episode is Christmas. You really see how high her freak flag flies. You get to see she’s crazy and judgmental and she’s guilty.

Gillian Jacobs

How will Britta act this next season to Jeff and Annie getting together?

GJ: It’s probably going to be a bumpy road, I would think. No only did she get rejected after she told Jeff she loved him in front of everyone, but then he went outside and kissed Annie. I think that it’s going to be hard for her ego to take. It’s always unclear where their hearts are at because both Jeff and Britta are egotistical people.

Who would you have dressed up as at Comic-Con?

GJ: Martian Manhunter. He’s from the Justice League.  He lives in the Tower of Justice. He’s a green alien. He looks like he has one head and he can pull it off. He actually has another pointy head underneath. His power is mind control.

He's the first recipient, so I'm not sure how prestigious it is. Guess it all depends on who receives it next year. If it's Luke Wilson for his work in Blue Streak then I'll know it's legit.

In 3D, you could smell the rum. Right after the Tron Legacy panel at Comic-Con, Disney screened a teaser trailer for Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. It basically features Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow letting everyone know that the movie is a thing and they can see it next summer. It was in 3D only so Capt. Jack could awkwardly shove a bottle of rum into the mostly underage audience. I took an imaginary swig, but imagine all those tween alcoholics in attendence. The 3D must have been torture for them.

You can also check out the awesome new trailer here. All of the actors were in attendence (for a third year in a row), including Garret Hedlund, Olivia Wilde, Michael Sheen, and Jeff Bridges, as well as director Joseph Kosinski. They enlighten us on the process of making the film, the flashy difference between Tron Legacy and Tron proper, and how Olivia kicked-ass in high heels. You really shouldn't need much more convincing to see the film when it opens on December 17, 2010.

"Hawaii 5-0" had theirs first. We got good seats by the water cooler and the footage I had already seen looked pretty rockin', so I was moderatly excited to see the new Danno and McGarrett. The crew and cast came out and there was no sign of Danno (Scott Caan) or McGarrett (Alex O'Loughlin). How are you going to have a Hawaii 5-0 panel with just Chin Ho and Kona?

Thursday at Comic-Con is in the history books, except for the videos I still need to post. Friday started off with Noah from the Break Horror Channel wanting to touch the hot Green Hornet Girls.

Nice half thumbs-up, Noah.

Then it was off to "The Walking Dead" panel. But wait… "Hawaii 5-0" had theirs first. We got good seats by the water cooler and the footage I had already seen looked pretty rockin’, so I was moderatly excited to see the new Danno and McGarrett. The crew and cast came out and there was no sign of Danno (Scott Caan) or McGarrett (Alex O’Loughlin). How are you going to have a Hawaii 5-0 panel with just Chin Ho and Kona?

Jin from "Lost" and Boomer from "Battlestar" pretend like the show’s leads aren’t there.

Whatever. Grace Park is hot and Daniel Dae Kim seemed like a genuinely gracious and standup guy. The show’s producers, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci ("Lost," "Fringe," Star Trek) were also there to tell everyone the show is delving deep into the characters and that they didn’t f*ck with the iconic theme song. They even brought back the original orchestral musicians to rerecord it.

Book ‘em, Roberto.

They showed a few clips, which I have to admit brought my meter back over to the cold side. The action and setting pulled me in, but then the stilted dialogue made me feel like I was watching a CBS procedurial, which I was, but still, let’s not always cater to 70 year-olds drifting off in their recliners, The Eye.

Finally we got to what I was most anticipating: zombies!!! I’m onto "The Walking Dead" panel now, by the way. Zombies with leis didn’t shuffle out during "Hawaii 5-0," which would have been amazing.

Frank Darabont, Gale Anne Hurd, and Robert Kirkman get everyone pumped about a zombie TV show.

The teaser for AMC’s upcoming "The Walking Dead" series was fantastic. Everything you’d expect from the director and writer of The Shawshank Redemption and the producer of Aliens. I’ve never read the comics, but I think everyone else in the crowd had and could probably smell the phoniness wafting from my person. They loved the footage, I loved the footage, we all got boners equally. I don’t want to ruin it by describing every frame I saw, but hopefully AMC will release it soon. Okay, I’ll give you words: zombies, tanks, spike strip, sniper, headshot. Sounds just like the comic, right? By the way, the chick who plays Lori Grimes is hot.

I’m Netflixing ‘Prison Break’ right after I type this.

At the end of the panel, people dressed as zombies, or actual real zombies, shuffled their way to the front of the crowd. I’d show you a picture, but Noah couldn’t manage to snap a clear one. Snorting coffee creamer makes his hands shakey. Overall, you must seriously, definitely, totally not miss "The Walking Dead" this October on AMC. It’s going to be a six episode season of pure delight and killshots. 

Lunch time! I had Mahi Mahi fish tacos. There could have been more sauce on them but I wasn’t drunk enough to get belligerent about. Plus, the waitress had a nice smile. Unless you’re my girlfriend reading this. Then she was a trashy whore. (My girlfriend made me say it, Waitress). 

After lunch, we walked right into Hall H. How there was no line, I have no idea. I guess no one was excited to see the "Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark" panel with producer Guillermo del Toro and director Troy Nixey.

You can’t see it, but del Toro’s surrounded by Hershey’s Kisses. Seriously.

They showed some creepy footage from the film and I pooped my pants a little. Figuratively speaking. Maybe. I’m a huge fan of the del Toro-produced The Orphanage and I think Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark will bring the goods as well. Actually, I know it will because del Toro said, "Horror has to have balls. And they have to be sweaty and wrinkled." So there’s that. Also, the guy said "motherf*cker" more than the bum I passed who was yelling at CVS’s brick wall. How cool is that? There could have been kids present, you guys!

And then my digital camera died. And my phone was on it’s last legs. So I have no pics from the Sony Priest, The Other Guys and Green Hornet panels. I don’t even really want to go into Priest because the footage didn’t excite me in the least bit and I’m too tired to be negative in a creative way. Although Maggie Q was lookin’ fiiiiiiiiine. I might have to catch that "Nikita" panel tomorrow just to get within shouting distance. I’m sure she’d appreciate my cat calls.

The Other Guys panel was hilarious, and it wasn’t just Will Ferrell who did all the heavy lifting. Adam McKay, Eva Mendes, and Marky Mark also brought the laughs. The funniest part was when a 16 year-old kid, who looked 10, came up and shyly sputtered out that he thought Eva was hot. She made some earnest remark about wanting to have sex with him (or maybe it was more like she thought he was also cute) and the guys went crazy with it. They kept giving her sh*t, but she didn’t back down. Eva played right along with the whole pedophile-persona. Like most of the Comic-Con happenings I have described and will describe in the future, you kinda had to be there.

Here’s how the Green Hornet panel went down: Moderator Ralph Garman introduced Seth Rogen, who came out and introduced the trailer. They played the trailer. Half the crowd in Hall H left. No effing joke. As the rest of the cast and crew came out, people walk-ran to the exits. Damn nerds, at least wait until Michel Gondry starts speaking broken english. Then I could understand you’ve had enough. No one has time to decipher dropped consonants after going eight hours on only nachos.  

I ended the night with a red velvet cupcake. Don’t be jealous.

Unfortunately, anyone holding out hope for the sequel is probably going to be disappointed. While Willis wants the movie to be made, director M. Night Shyamalan isn't so hot on the idea. "I think we'd have to hip-check M. Night (Shyamalan) into doing it," Willis said. I'm not sure why M. Night would be against making the sequel. He's had a lot of bombs lately, and a sequel of a popular film might be just the slump buster he needs. After all, Kevin Smith wasn't doing so well, and then he won an Oscar for Clerks 2. Now he's on top of the world. (The Playlist)

I didn't know what to expect except madness, and madness is what I got. And David Hasselhoff singing on a bus surrounded by half-naked women, but we'll get to that later. Thursday proved to be a test of the mind, feet, and senses. I saw some terrific panels, cruised the main floor, and even attended a party where Sly Stallone was given an award that looked like a bomb. It was supposed to signify his contribution to the action movie genre, but made him look like an Italian who was at his wits end with the Hard Rock Hotel. I started the day bright and early waiting in line for the Tron Legacy panel. Sally from A Nightmare Before Christmas was also there.

And David Hasselhoff singing on a bus surrounded by half-naked women, but we’ll get to that later. Thursday proved to be a test of the mind, feet, and senses. I saw some terrific panels, cruised the main floor, and even attended a party where Sly Stallone was given an award that looked like a bomb. It was supposed to signify his contribution to the action movie genre, but made him look like an Italian who was at his wits end with the Hard Rock Hotel.

I started the day bright and early waiting in line for the Tron Legacy panel. Sally from A Nightmare Before Christmas was also there. 

Once in the Tron panel, Patton Oswalt, returning as moderator from last year, came out and introduced the cast and crew. Jeff Bridges, Olivia Wilde, Garrett Hedlund, Michael Sheen, Bruce Boxleitner, Director Joseph Kosinski, among others were there. I’ll have the video up for you tomorrow, but here are some blurry pics in the meantime.

Like most panels at Comic-Con, the Tron panel wasn’t much more than the cast and crew telling you to see the movie, how awesome it’s going to be, and how everyone loved working with everyone else. The reason to go see these panels is because of the exclusive footage. The very footage that attendees aren’t allowed to record and share. I was privy to a five minute scene that showed Sam Flynn abducted and then placed int the Master Control Program. It looked fairly awesome and I know the finished product will look even better. Unfortunately it ended right when Sam was about to kick some ass in the arena. We then got to check out the new trailer, which you can see here.

After the Tron panel ended, they played a video with Johnny Depp dressed as Jack Sparrow that basically reminded everyone that Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides is coming out next summer.

Then came a big announcement. Guillermo de Toro wobbled out and told the crowd that he’s remaking Disney’s Haunted Mansion sans Eddie Murphy. It’s going to be scary, not family-friendly, unfunny bullsh*t. Little kids might crap their tighty-whities. Check out the announcement:

After a delicious lunch (I had the turkey club) with Noah from the Break Horror Channel and Vince from FilmDrunk (check out Vince’s first day HERE), we were all walking back to the convention center when David Hasselhoff appeared out of nowhere singing "Hooked on a Feeling" atop a double-decker bus. Only at Comic-Con, right?! He was surrounded by hot chicks in tight, red outfits. Threats must have been made in Deutsch to get such a display sanctioned. I wasn’t quick enough with the FlipCam because I was getting money from the ATM, but luckily Vince can always sense when The Hoff is approaching and had his camera at the ready.

After The Hoff puttered back to whatever bottle he emerged from, we perused the convention floor. It’s massive a space with more booths set up than any human would care to or would be able to visit in one go-around. Some are too hokey, some are too nerdy, and the weird, sexual stuff is stationed in the back corner. Here are some of the highlights:

 

Tron lightcycle. I want to go to there.

The Walking Dead display. Bloody. Creepy. Perfect.

Hot chicks play with Vince’s entrails.

Mousepad with boob wrist support. Say "no" to carpal tunnel.

Fleshlights. And they thought they could hide them from me…

I’m bured alive! But really just standing upright in a closet.

Stan Lee signs autographs at the Thor display. Meh. He always eats at a deli by my office.

Shopped!

Next up was the "Dexter" panel.

We saw a short teaser that gave away nothing, followed by a panel with Manny Coto, Sara Colleton, Chip Johannessen, John Goldwyn, James Remar, Jennifer Carpenter, and Michael C. Hall, who all gave away nothing. They obviously wouldn’t divulge who killed Rita, and literally wouldn’t let anything slip regarding ho Dexter will balance raising three kids and continuing to murder people. The biggest news that I took away from the panel is that John Lithgow has a kids album called "Singing in the Bathtub." The writers say it’s a coincidence, but I’m certain that Lithgow, through the use of mind control, influenced their arrival at last season’s climax.

Finally, the night ended at a party for The Expendables at The Hard Rock Hotel hosted by IGN. The booze was free and the foods was hand passed. It doesn’t take much more than that for me to show up somewhere. The DJ spun while Noah and I enjoyed pastries stuffed with mushroom stuff on a nearby sofa. Then it was award time. Dolph Lundgren, Terry Crews, Randy Couture, and Steve Austin presented an inert bomb to Sylvester Stallone for his action moviestar achievements. I’ll put a video up tomorrow, but here’s a barely visable pic for now.

It was cool to watch all those guys on stage together, but uncool that a fight didn’ break out. I wanted to see the San Diego Hard Rock Hotel go down in infamy tonight for awesomeness. I suppose I could have instigated it, but I was sleepy.

‘Captain America’ and ‘Thor’ Comic-Con Teaser Posters http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/captain-america-and-thor-comic-con-teaser-posters/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/captain-america-and-thor-comic-con-teaser-posters/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 So basically the Comic-Con teaser posters for Captain America and Thor are awesome. If the films are half as awesome as these gritty, realistic conceptual depictions by artist Ryan Meinerding we're in for an awesome treat. Look at Captain America up there, deflecting those bullets with his massive patriotic shield. He looks furious and hungry enough to eat a Nazi's face for lunch. Please Joe Johnston, dangle this poster in front of your face for inspiration as you direct the film. If Joel Schumacher would have done such a thing, the bat suit never would have been altered with nipples. Check out larger versions of the posters after the jump...

The Weinsteins Say ‘F You’ to Comic-Con with Off-Site ‘Piranha 3D’ Exhibit http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/the-weinsteins-say-f-you-to-comic-con-with-off-site-piranha-3d-exhibit/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/the-weinsteins-say-f-you-to-comic-con-with-off-site-piranha-3d-exhibit/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 When Comic-Con told the The Weinstein Company that their Piranha 3D footage was too graphic for the "family friendly" event, they pulled out of the planned panel. But now comes word that the company is taking it one step further, saying f*** you to Comic-Con by hosting an off-site, nighttime event of their own featuring the rejected footage. TWC and director Alexandre Aja originally planned to show off a sequence where a wet T-shirt contest turns into a total massacre as prehistoric fish chomp waterlogged fun-seekers into meat. It’s the sequence that has been teased in the trailers and pre-release images, and one that sounds like one of the film’s planned showstopper setpieces. I guess it should come as no surprise that the Weinstein Brothers, two of the most powerful men in Hollywood, found a way to outflank the organizers of a comic-book convention. Frankly, I wouldn't be surprised if some Teamsters showed up, blocked the exits, and burnt the place down, cosplay girls and all. (/Film)

Two desks over and one back, sit Detectives Allen Gamble (Will Ferrell) and Terry Hoitz (Mark Wahlberg). You’ve seen them in the background of photos of Danson and Highsmith, out of focus and eyes closed. They’re not heroes — they’re "the Other Guys." But every cop has his day and soon Gamble and Hoitz stumble into a seemingly innocuous case no other detective wants to touch that could turn into New York City’s biggest crime. It’s the opportunity of their lives, but do these guys have the right stuff? Will Ferrell, Mark Wahlberg, Eva Mendes, and co-writer/director Adam McKay will be appearing in person.

The Green Hornet–Director Michel Gondry, who makes movies with a special, personal signature, is taking on The Green Hornet—and he’s doing it in 3D. Comic-Con audiences, prepare yourselves. In The Green Hornet, Britt Reid (Seth Rogen) is the son of L.A.’s most prominent and respected media magnate and perfectly happy to maintain a directionless existence on the party scene—until his father (Tom Wilkinson) mysteriously dies, leaving Britt his vast media empire. Striking an unlikely friendship with one of his father’s more industrious and inventive employees, Kato (Jay Chou), they see their chance to do something meaningful for the first time in their lives: fight crime. To get close to the criminals, they come up with the perfect cover: they’ll pose as criminals themselves. Protecting the law by breaking it, Britt becomes the vigilante The Green Hornet as he and Kato hit the streets. Confirmed to appear in person to unveil this early look at The Green Hornet in 3D are the Hornet himself, Seth Rogen,  director Michel Gondry, writer Evan Goldberg, producer Neal Moritz, and actor Christoph Waltz.

Comic-Con descends upon San Diego in two weeks, and Screen Junkies will be there every step of the way getting stepped on by costumed freaks in pursuit of footage. Luckily, Summit isn’t showcasing a Twilight panel this year, so we won’t have to worry about Twihards ripping off our genitals in an effort to bum rush Hall H. Make sure you continually reload SJ’s homepage July 21-25 for the latest Comic-Con updates. My fingers are crossed I can pick up a wireless signal in the Convention Center, or else I’ll have to start eliminating bloggers, thus boosting bandwith.
