Next up is Fox on Friday, July 25th from 4:20pm to 6:20pm in Hall H.
Unlike Dreamworks, Fox’s panel has quite a bit going on, with a few very notable genre pictures – including Agent 47 (the semi-reboot/sequel to the video game adaptation Hitman), Kingsman: The Secret Service (the second Mark Millar comic book adaptation to be directed by Matthew Vaughn), and The Maze Runner (the next big YA movie, perhaps?).
The other two movies that have panels are the buddy “cop” comedy Let’s Be Cops – starring Damon Wayans Jr. (Happy Endings), Jake Johnson (The New Girl), and Keegan Michael-Key (Key and Peele) – and The Book of Life, a really cool-looking animated film from producer Guillermo del Toro that sort of resembles the classic adventure game Grim Fandango.
Quite a few prominent actors, directors, et cetera, will be in attendance, including Damon Wayans Jr. and Keegan Michael-Kay (Let’s Be Cops); Dylan O’Brien (The Maze Runner); Channing Tatum, Ron Perlman, Christina Applegate, and Guillermo del Toro (Book of Life); Colin Firth, Samuel L. Jackson, Mark Millar, and David Gibbons (Secret Service); and Zachary Quinto (Agent 47).

‘Let’s Be Cops’ withDamon Wayans Jr, Rob Riggle and Keegan Michael-Key
Synopsis: 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.

‘The Maze Runner’ with Dylan O’Brien, Kaya Scodelario, Will Poulter, Writer James Dashner and Director Wes Ball
Synopsis: When Thomas wakes up trapped in a massive maze with a group of other boys, he has no memory of the outside world other than strange dreams about a mysterious organization known as W.C.K.D. Only by piecing together fragments of his past with clues he discovers in the maze can Thomas hope to uncover his true purpose and a way to escape. Based upon the best-selling novel by James Dashner.
‘The Book of Life’ with Channing Tatum, Ron Perlman, Christina Applegate, Writer/Director Jorge Gutierrez and Producer Guillermo del Toro

Synopsis: Based upon the acclaimed comic book and directed by Matthew Vaughn (Kick Ass, X-Men First Class), ‘Kingsman: The Secret Service’ tells the story of a super-secret spy organization that recruits an unrefined but promising street kid into the agency’s ultra-competitive training program just as a global threat emerges from a twisted tech genius.
‘Agent 47’ with Zachary Quinto and Hannah Ware
Synopsis: Based on the top-selling, award-winning videogame franchise, ‘Agent 47’ is an all-new motion picture about an elite and genetically engineered assassin, known only by the last two digits – 47 – of a barcode tattooed on the back of his neck. His latest target is a young woman on the run from powerful and clandestine forces. The mission brings startling revelations about the lethal agent and his prey, hurtling them on a collision course with their pasts. And this time, his number may be up.
