Ant-Man script dispute resolved: Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish get writing credit

22 April 2015 6:55 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish's bulk of the work on Ant-Man won't go unnoticed after all, as a dispute over writing credit is finally resolved.

Adam McKay and Paul Rudd rewrote the screenplay when Wright withdrew as director for the pint-sized superhero film, but much of his original work was still used.

Peyton Reed, who assumed directing duties, apparently worked off Wright's original storyboards too.

According to The Wrap, Marvel and the four writers have now settled the dispute during arbitration and will share the screenplay credit. Wright and Cornish however, will also receive a 'story by' credit.

Wright decided to step down from the project in May last year, owing to "creative differences".

Rudd stars in Ant-Man as a petty criminal named Scott Lang, who finds himself able to change size and communicate with insects due to technology created by Dr Hank Pym (Michael Douglas).

Joss Whedon says Edgar Wright’s Ant-Man was “the best script Marvel ever had”

22 April 2015 12:50 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

During a promotional interview with Buzzfeed ahead of the release of Avengers: Age of Ultron [read our spoiler free ★★★★★ review here], Joss Whedon got onto the topic of Marvel’s next movie Ant-Man, and more specifically Edgar Wright’s original screenplay for the miniature superhero, which he calls “the best script that Marvel ever had.”

“I don’t get it. I thought the script was not only the best script that Marvel had ever had, but the most Marvel script I’d read. I had no interest in Ant-Man. [Then] I read the script, and was like, Of course! This is so good! It reminded me of the books when I read them. Irreverent and funny and could make what was small large, and vice versa. I don’t know where things went wrong. But I was very sad. Because I thought, This is a no-brainer. This is Marvel getting it exactly right. Whatever dissonance that came, »

Joss Whedon says Edgar Wright's Ant-Man script was Marvel's best ever

22 April 2015 8:23 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Marvel lost the best script they ever had when they decided to part ways with Edgar Wright on Ant-Man - according to Joss Whedon.

The Avengers: Age of Ultron director admitted that he still struggles to understand why Wright and Marvel couldn't put aside their differences and make the film work.

"I thought the script was not only the best script that Marvel had ever had, but the most Marvel script I'd read," he told BuzzFeed.

"I had no interest in Ant-Man. [Then] I read the script and was like, 'Of course! This is so good!' It reminded me of the books when I read them. Irreverent and funny and could make what was small large, and vice versa."

Whedon added that the parting of ways was even more frustrating for him because Wright and co-writer Joe Cornish's script seemed to be a "no-brainer" and an example of "Marvel »

Photos: Marvel Putting Up Tiny Ant-Man Billboards

21 April 2015 3:42 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

"Ant-Man" is set to hit theaters on July 17th and Marvel has already started putting up billboards to promote the film. And sticking with the theme, the billboards are tiny. We have three photos of these banners, which come mostly from Australia and look to be placed randomly around town. There's a good chance this marketing campaign will soon spread to the Us. Check out the photos below. "Ant-Man" stars Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas, Evangeline Lilly, and Corey Stoll. Photos: (click to enlarge) »

'Ant-Man' Gets Ant-Sized Billboards

20 April 2015 3:10 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

In an interesting twist that follows previous promotional efforts, Marvel has decided to target it's latest adventure Ant-Man to insects and other small individual creatures. Yes, that's right! They've launched a series of 'ant-sized' billboards throughout Australia in a viral marketing campaign that is as fun as it is eye-catching. Photos of the billboards began to surface on Reddit, and as you'll see, they are definitely not meant for the average sized superhero.

It is not yet known if Marvel plans to erect these billboards in the states. As you can see in the images, they are pretty firmly attached to their surfaces areas. But that has not stopped some Australian residents from plotting their theft. Maybe this is a professional job for Scott Lang? Anyway, the billboards reveal nothing new about the movie, and only show the already released logo. The idea of Ant-Man is a tough sell, but »

Weekend Box Office: Three new films debut in the top 10 as ‘Furious 7′ holds steady

19 April 2015 6:18 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

James Wan’s Furious 7 continued defending its position this weekend as the year’s first blockbuster as it earned $29.1 million, winning the box office for the third weekend in a row. The feature also widened its lead as the highest grossing film of 2015 to date, earning more than 2014’s fourth place finisher Captain America: The Winter Soldier in the process. 

However, the film was joined by two newcomers in the top 10, as the comedy sequel Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 and the horror feature Unfriended finished in second and third place respectively. Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2, the sequel to the 2009 Kevin James vehicle, took in $24 million, while Unfriended finished with $16 million to round out the top three. The two were joined in the top ten by fellow newcomer Monkey Kingdom, as the Disney documentary took in $4.7 million to finish in seventh place.

Michael Douglas Talks Beyond The Reach and Ant-man

19 April 2015 7:58 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The dramatic cat-and-mouse thriller Beyond the Reach shows what happens when a high-rolling corporate shark named Madec (Michael Douglas) hires a young guide named Ben (Jeremy Irvine) to go hunting in the vast, hostile desert basin of the Reach.

Beyond The Reach Review

17 April 2015 1:03 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

I struggled to start this review because Beyond The Reach divided me in a tonally confusing, strangely endearing kind of way. Director Jean-Baptiste Léonetti calls upon the blistering Mojave Desert heat in his adaptation of Robb White’s novel Deathwatch, but he also calls upon a goofy-as-hell Michael Douglas. Part of the film wants to be this badass “most dangerous game” reimagining, turning Douglas’ character into a comic-booky Bond villain, while another more reserved aspect thrives on exploiting an extremely human struggle between two obviously mismatched classes. It’s about the rich vs. the poor, not just man vs. man, but most importantly, it’s about a raging lunatic who looks like a Cabela’s poster child gone apeshit.

Michael Douglas plays Madec, a millionaire/billionaire businessman who loves hunting big game. Jeremy Irvine plays Ben, a local tracker who is pining over a girlfriend who just left for a more fruitful college life. »

Gary Collinson on the 2015 superhero box office showdown…

Revisiting Last Year’S Predictions

Before we turn our attention to this year’s line-up of superhero movies, we’ll start as always by casting our eye back twelve months to last year’s predictions, as Marvel continued the build to Avengers: Age of Ultron with Captain America: The Winter Soldier as well as launching the cosmic side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Guardians of the Galaxy, Fox brought together its two X-Men timelines for X-Men: Days of Future Past, Sony killed the Spider-Man franchise (again) with The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

Last Year’s Prediction - “As for the biggest earner of the year, I can’t look past The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and I expect the sequel to pull in around $700 million, followed by Captain America: The Winter Soldier and X-Men: Days of Future Past with around $550 – $600 million apiece (if »
