Did you know that David Ayer's "End Of Watch" was presented at Comic-Con this weekend? No? Well, it was, but unfortunately the gamble by newbie distributors Open Road Films didn't quite pay off. Of the many, many movies lighting up social media this weekend and getting major buzz, this cop drama wasn't one of them.

We love nothing more than a good, gooey monster movie, and from the looks of the new trailer released for Irish horror comedy "Grabbers" (a surprise hit at Sundance this year), we've got one coming our way very, very soon. Written by Kevin Lehane and directed by Jon Wright, with a cast that includes Richard Coyle, Russell Tovey, and Lalor Roddy, it centers on an idyllic seaside fishing village menaced by something altogether unnatural (and very, very squishy).

While set pics from "Knight Of Cups" have been notable for revealing various new additions to the cast including Wes Bentley, Imogen Poots, Freida Pinto and Teresa Palmer, it looks like the latest video and image to be captured reveals the movie may share a musical connection with Malick's other picture he's shooting this year, the formerly titled "Lawless." As you might recall, that movie has already done some kind of shooting at Austin City Limits last fall and SXSW this year, with bands like Arcade Fire, Fleet Foxes, The Cult and Neon Indian all featuring in some way. Now you can add one of the biggest DJs in the world to the mix.

Comic-Con may be over, but that doesn't mean the news of comic adaptations comes to an end. While thousands are stripping out of the cosplay outfits and recovering from nacho hangovers, Hollywood continues to move forward and another interesting bit of news has arrived concerning a property that isn't quite as well known as Superman, Spider-Man or Batman.

At Comic-Con over the weekend it was announced that Passion Pit, the incredibly popular indie electro-pop band that started as a Valentine's Day gift from lead singer Michael Angelakos to his girlfriend, would appear on the soundtrack to "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2" (via Hypable). This is, presumably, a new song, although earlier soundtracks have used previously released tracks. They are the first band announced for the soundtrack.

Word on director Greg Mottola's improv-based film starring Larry David took a leap last month with the addition of Jon Hamm, continuing the “Mad Men” actor's gradual public journey from dramatic mainstay to eventual 20-time “SNL” host, but while Hamm is using the film to further his chops, another actor who began his career in the comedy genre looks to duck back into the fray.
