31 March 2015 3:09 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Marvel Studios has teamed up with Audi for a new extended TV commercial that promotes not only Avengers: Age of Ultron, but also their Audi Tts. If that wasn't enough, the end of this latest promo brings an Ant-Man teaser. Don't get too excited, though!

Avengers: Age of Ultron&#160is the epic follow-up to the biggest Super Hero movie of all time. When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth's Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance.

Revisiting Clear And Present Danger: the best Jack Ryan film

30 March 2015 7:48 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

An intelligent, dense political thriller in the middle of summer? We visit Harrison Ford in Tom Clancy's Clear And Present Danger...

This article contains spoilers for, er, Clear And Present Danger.

How many times have you walked out of seeing a big summer blockbuster movie, and felt like you'd been treated like a grown-up? Christopher Nolan movies, whether you like them or not, treat you with that level of respect. But when it comes to major thrillers, there's generally something about them where you feel you've been shortchanged.

It's why it puzzles me that Clear And Present Danger doesn't get a lot more love. From the day I saw it for the first time back in 1994, and on every viewing since, I've really loved this film. I love that it isn't afraid of a dense plot, isn't afraid of putting a big movie star on the poster yet finds time for supporting characters, »

The Barber Is a Tawdry, Stylish Serial-Killer Flick

24 March 2015 9:00 PM, PDT | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

Veteran character actor Scott Glenn relishes the opportunity to sink his teeth into a rare lead role in this tawdry, if stylishly shot, serial-killer flick. Looking grizzled and emaciated, Glenn is compelling as small-town barber Gene Van Wingerdt, a buttoned-down blend of Billy Bob Thornton's saturnine snipper in The Man Who Wasn't There and Michael Douglas's simmering white-collar workhorse in Falling Down. Like countless other movie psychos, Gene marries a strict puritanical bent — he doesn't like it when his young Hispanic employee Luis (Max Arciniega) curses, for example — with an extremely dark past. Two decades prior, he was arrested for murdering several women, but released due to insufficient evidence. The outcome drove the c »

Ant-Man: feels more like Guardians Of The Galaxy than Thor

22 March 2015 11:45 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Bobby Cannavale reveals that Marvel's Ant-Man movie "felt more like Guardians Of The Galaxy"...

Right now, the focus of attention regarding upcoming Marvel Studios movies is on the imminent Avengers: Age Of Ultron. Joss Whedon's sequel arrives in UK cinemas next month, as it begins its global rollout. Our hopes for the film are not low.

There is, though, a second Marvel feature arriving this summer, and that's Ant-Man. You more than likely know the story so far on this one, that Edgar Wright developed the film over the best part of a decade, before parting ways with the project on the eve of production. Peyton Reed stepped in to direct, after Anchorman's Adam McKay had some rewrite work with Paul Rudd, and things are now set for an end of July release.

One of the members of the cast is Bobby Cannavale, and he's been chatting to »

Marvel's 'Ant-Man' Shoot Was Baffling Says Bobby Cannavale

21 March 2015 4:23 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Bobby Cannavale is set to play a character named Paxton in Marvel's upcoming summer adventure Ant-Man. He is the husband of Scott Lang's (Paul Rudd) ex-wife Maggie, played by Judy Greer. Bobby Cannavale went into great detail about his experiences shooting the film, and even teases that his character may get shrunk down at some point in the story.

Talking with ComicBookResources, Bobby Cannavale actually called the Ant-Man shoot baffling. He riffs on the process of shooting all blue-screen and questions some of the methods utilizes to bring this new superhero to life. He says:

"It was a trip!. I've never been in anything like that before. There's a ton of people on this crew. it was just huge! And there's blue screen everywhere. I remember one time we were shooting at nights for three weeks. I hadn't seen anything behind me that wasn't a blue screen for three nights in a row. »

16 March 2015 5:21 AM, PDT | Us Weekly | See recent Us Weekly news »

Michael Douglas is using his celebrity to speak out about an issue that hits very close to home for his family. As he revealed in a powerful op-ed for the Los Angeles Times on Saturday, March 14, his son Dylan was recently the victim of an anti-Semitic tirade in Southern Europe. The Behind the Candelabra actor, 70, was on vacation with his family last summer when Dylan, now 14, went swimming at the hotel pool. "A short time later he came running back to the room, upset," [...] »

Wright Was Earliest Surviving Best Supporting Actress Oscar Winner

15 March 2015 12:05 AM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Teresa Wright: Later years (See preceding post: "Teresa Wright: From Marlon Brando to Matt Damon.") Teresa Wright and Robert Anderson were divorced in 1978. They would remain friends in the ensuing years.[1] Wright spent most of the last decade of her life in Connecticut, making only sporadic public appearances. In 1998, she could be seen with her grandson, film producer Jonah Smith, at New York's Yankee Stadium, where she threw the ceremonial first pitch.[2] Wright also became involved in the Greater New York chapter of the Als Association. (The Pride of the Yankees subject, Lou Gehrig, died of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis in 1941.) The week she turned 82 in October 2000, Wright attended the 20th anniversary celebration of Somewhere in Time, where she posed for pictures with Christopher Reeve and Jane Seymour. In March 2003, she was a guest at the 75th Academy Awards, in the segment showcasing Oscar-winning actors of the past. Two years later, »

Michael Douglas Opens Up About His Son Experiencing Anti-Semitism: It's Time to Speak Up Against This Hate

14 March 2015 6:43 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Michael Douglas isn't one to make waves in and out of Hollywood. But when his son was faced with a situation he described as "anti-Semitism," the Hollywood actor decided to speak out in hopes that this "hate" will end sooner rather than later. "Last summer our family went to Southern Europe on holiday. During our stay at a hotel, our son Dylan went to the swimming pool," he wrote in an op-ed piece published Saturday in the Los Angeles Times. "A short time later he came running back to the room, upset. A man at the pool had started hurling insults at him." Douglas later recalled finding the man at the pool where they had "not a pleasant discussion." The unnamed »

10 Most Outlandish Ant-Man Rumours

13 March 2015 3:45 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Just like Guardians Of The Galaxy before it, Ant-Man is considered Marvel’s riskiest movie to date by some. Whether it proves everyone wrong by being a hit critically and commercially remains to be seen, but it’s a safe bet to say it will based on past experience.

Edgar Wright may no longer be in the director’s chair (he’s been replaced by Yes Man’s Peyton Reed), but his script remains, albeit with a pretty significant sounding overhaul from star Paul Rudd and Anchorman scribe Adam McKay. That alone sounds promising, and when you throw in the fact that the cast also includes Michael Douglas, Evangeline Lilly, and Corey Stoll, there’s no reason to think Marvel don’t have yet another hit on their hands.

Despite the fact that Ant-Man doesn’t have the same level of hype around it as Avengers: Age Of Ultron, it »

Oscar Winner Went All the Way from Wyler to Coppola in Film Career Spanning Half a Century

11 March 2015 2:18 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Teresa Wright and Matt Damon in 'The Rainmaker' Teresa Wright: From Marlon Brando to Matt Damon (See preceding post: "Teresa Wright vs. Samuel Goldwyn: Nasty Falling Out.") "I'd rather have luck than brains!" Teresa Wright was quoted as saying in the early 1950s. That's understandable, considering her post-Samuel Goldwyn choice of movie roles, some of which may have seemed promising on paper.[1] Wright was Marlon Brando's first Hollywood leading lady, but that didn't help her to bounce back following the very public spat with her former boss. After all, The Men was released before Elia Kazan's film version of A Streetcar Named Desire turned Brando into a major international star. Chances are that good film offers were scarce. After Wright's brief 1950 comeback, for the third time in less than a decade she would be gone from the big screen for more than a year. »

Marvel's 'Ant-Man' Has an Indie Movie Sensibility

2 March 2015 7:20 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Phase Two of the Marvel Cinematic Universee comes to a close this year with a pair of massive adventures, the highly-anticipated sequel Avengers: Age of Ultron and our introduction into the world of Ant-Man. Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas lead an all-star cast as Scott Lang and Hank Pym, but one of the characters we haven't heard much about is Bobby Cannavale's Paxton. During a new interview with Collider, the actor revealed that Paxton is a brand new character who does not originate in the Marvel comic books.

"He's a new character. I mean the whole story is pretty new because the origin story of Dr. Hank Pym who's the original Ant-Man, that's Michael Douglas' character, and so Paul's character is sort of a protege. The whole story is really new so he's a new character."

Last month, one of Bobby Cannavale's co-stars Judy Greer said there »

Bobby Cannavale compares Ant-Man to Guardians of the Galaxy, “it’s pretty funny”

2 March 2015 4:02 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It was assumed based on the cast and crew of Marvel’s Ant-Man that it would be quite comedic in tone, but a darker trailer than people were expecting quashed some of those thoughts. However, we have been promised by Judy Greer that there was “lots of improvised comedy”, which have come to know from the likes of Paul Rudd. Now, Bobby Cannavale, who is set to play Paxton in the movie, also backs up this idea.

“It’s pretty funny,” he told Nuke The Fridge. “I think so. I haven’t seen anything but it felt funny. It’s Paul, so I think they’re not hiring Paul Rudd to be The Winter Soldier. It’s going to have a sense of levity to it, like Guardians of the Galaxy. Guardians is a blue chips superhero movie but it’s a pretty funny film. They just got the right people. »

Atwell had been widely rumoured to be making a cameo as Peggy Carter, while the poster also confirms that Asgardian warrior Heimdall (Elba) and the Falcon (Mackie) will appear.

Writer-director Joss Whedon's sequel gathers the Marvel Universe's top heroes to battle the malevolent artificial intelligence Ultron (James Spader).
