Avengers: Age of Ultron is unquestionably Marvel’s big event next summer but they are also releasing a film that has been a long time in the making: Ant-Man. Originally directed by Edgar Wright, Ant-Man has been the subject of controversy since Wright departed the project and Peyton Reed assumed the director’s mantle. Nonetheless, Marvel has moved with the production of the film and now, it has released an official synopsis. Read it below:
“The next evolution of the Marvel Cinematic Universe brings a founding member of The Avengers to the big screen for the first time with Marvel Studios’ “Ant-Man.” Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, master thief Scott Lang must embrace his inner-hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym, protect the secret behind his spectacular Ant-Man suit from a new generation of towering threats.

With principal photography on Marvel’s Ant-Man coming to an end this week, the post-production work begins. The mammoth task of compiling live-action footage together with the CGI components is but one element of that process. Perhaps the biggest matter for the studio to contend with is audience awareness. Ant-Man is arguably one of their zanier properties, that doesn’t yet carry the same household name weight as The Avengers or Iron Man. To ensure the moviegoing public know exactly who this little guy is come next summer, the marketing machine has fired out the first official synopsis.
Running down the events we can expect to see in the comic book caper, it confirms a slew of cast members who were previously only rumoured to be involved. The most interesting part is the writing credit; which currently says Tbd. After original writer-director Edgar Wright left the project, the script was »

Warner Bros. has released a new international trailer for In the Heart of the Sea, the upcoming nautical survival tale which reunites Rush director Ron Howard with star Chris Hemsworth. Check it out below…
n the winter of 1820, the New England whaling ship Essex was assaulted by something no one could believe: a whale of mammoth size and will, and an almost human sense of vengeance. The real-life maritime disaster would inspire Herman Melville’s Moby-Dick. But that told only half the story. “Heart of the Sea” reveals the encounter’s harrowing aftermath, as the ship’s surviving crew is pushed to their limits and forced to do the unthinkable to stay alive. Braving storms, starvation, panic and despair, the men will call into question their deepest beliefs, from the value of their lives to the morality of their trade, as their captain searches for direction on the open sea »

I never pictured Ron Howard as much of a Roland Emmerich guy, but that's the unexpected spirit exploding off the trailer for his latest film, "In the Heart of the Sea." The film tells the true story the American whaleship "Essex" and its ill-fated run-in with a mighty sperm whale in November 1820. The story became the basis for Herman Melville's contemplative novel "Moby Dick." Howard's version of the story looks more like that time the Kraken ate Jack Sparrow, a beefed up, seafaring 'Apollo 13.' That's not bad thing. Staring Chris Hemsworth as First Mate Owen Chase, the film recounts the crew's experience surviving the Jaws-on-steroids high seas encounter. Benjamin Walker, Cillian Murphy, Ben Whishaw, Jordi Molla are all aboard as costars, with Tom Holland and Brendan Gleeson playing young and old versions of the narrator. Charles Leavitt ("Blood Diamond," upcoming "Warcraft") wrote the original draft of the script, »

Warner Bros. has released the first trailer for director Ron Howard's thrilling new epic adventure movie In the Heart of the Sea. The incredible-looking movie is is based on a book by Nathaniel Philbrick that tells the disastrous, true story that inspired the classic tale of Moby Dick. The movie follows a Nantucket whaling ship called the Essex, which was stalked and destroyed by a sperm whale in 1820. The crew was stranded thousands of miles from home, and they did whatever they could to survive during the 90 days that they were lost.
Howard in one of my favorite directors. The guy knows how to tell a great story on film. This first trailer is insanely awesome, and I can't wait to see this film! It also boasts an impressive cast that includes Chris Hemsworth, Benjamin Walker, Cillian Murphy, Ben Whishaw, Tom Holland, Brendan Gleeson, and Jordi Molla. Here's the »

Have you ever read Nathaniel Philbrick's book, In the Heart of the Sea: The Tragedy of the Whaleship Essex? It's a riveting tale of survival that goes to some wildly dark, disturbing places that you won't soon forget and this first trailer for Ron Howard's big screen rendition certainly reflects that. Back in 1820 the whaleship Essex was rammed by an angry whale in the South Pacific. Those who survived the attack drifted for more than 90 days in three small whaleboats during which many fell victim to disease, hunger and cannibalism. Not only does this new promo for the film boast some stunning cinematography with a striking and tonally appropriate color palette, but it also functions as a particularly effective tease of the narrative. It does reveal a good deal of action and destruction, but rather than sensationalize the tale to build interest, it keeps the characters in the forefront, »

A new trailer for a whale of a tale has just been released by Warner Bros and Village Roadshow Pictures for In The Heart Of The Sea, the Ron Howard-directed adaptation of the Nathaniel Philbrick book. It’s the harrowing true survival story of the whaling ship Essex that inspired Melville to write Moby Dick. The film stars Chris Hemsworth, Benjamin Walker, George Pollard, Cillian Murphy, Tom Holland, Brendan Gleeson, Jordi Molla and Ben Whishaw as Melville.
In the winter of 1820, during the boom in the whaling business, Essex set out from New England and was torn apart by a mammoth whale. The boat went down, and that is really where this tale begins. It’s the story of cruel survival that involved leadership, cowardice, bad decisions, and cannibalism. I have been writing about the various attempts to adapt this book since it was first published and won the »

Warner Bros. has released the first In the Heart of the Sea images from director Ron Howard’s upcoming drama. Based on Nathaniel Philbrick’s excellent book of the same name, the film tells the story of the whaling ship Essex, which in 1819 was rammed by an angry whale in the South Pacific. The surviving crew drifted for 90 days in three tiny whaleboats and encountered disease, hunger, and eventually cannibalism. It’s a heartwrenching true story, and it served as the basis for Herman Melville’s Moby Dick. Howard’s fantastic cast is led by Chris Hemsworth as the ship’s first mate, Tom Holland as a young cabin boy who eventually tells his tale to Melville once he’s an adult, and Benjamin Walker as Captain George Pollard Jr. All of the actors lost a significant amount of weight for the film. Philbrick’s book is positively enthralling, and after Howard’s swell Rush, »

• It looks like Mike Epps may finally get the chance to play legendary stand-up comedian Richard Pryor after all. The comic has emerged as the front-runner to play the part in a biopic for The Weinstein Company directed by Lee Daniels (The Butler).
