    A new comedy promotion ad campaign is halted featuring Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Jonah Hill and Billy Crudup menacing a suburban neighborhood in light of the Trayvon Martin incident.

    In one scene the four actors drive through a neighborhood and pretend they are shooting at a group of teenagers.



    FOX has pulled promotional posters for the campaign and has stopped playing the trailer in theaters.

    The studio hopes the Martin case will have died down by the film’s July 27 release date.
