Like David Bowie joining Bing Crosby for a medley of Christmas carols, “Ricki and the Flash” combines a number of promising elements that don’t seem to have any business being anywhere near each other, though the disconnect exerts a strange appeal all its own. Offering half an acerbic family dramedy (from screenwriter Diablo Cody, in “Young Adult” mode), and half a Jonathan Demme-directed concert pic that just happens to feature Meryl Streep as the frontwoman, this is a shaggy, easily distractible film that consistently defies expectations to both charming and baffling effect. Whether audiences will know what to make of it is an open question — if the actual film is a collision of several clashing tones, its trailer introduces a different one entirely — though acolytes of the Cult of Meryl could rally some support at the box office.
Streep bravely courts, and often achieves, ridiculousness in the lead role as Ricki Rendazzo (a. »

Following the release of Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron and Ant-Man, the studio's Phase Two is now complete, and fans are starting to eagerly await Phase Three. This nine-movie phase gets kicked off next summer with Captain America: Civil War, which will showcase the new Black Panther, Chadwick Boseman, for the first time. Black Panther is also getting his own stand alone Phase Three movie, set for release on July 6, 2018, which doesn't have a director in place quite yet. While promoting the upcoming N.W.A. biopic Straight Outta Compton, filmmaker F. Gary Gray was asked about rumors that he is being considered to direct Black Panther. Here's what the filmmaker had to say.
"I would love to direct a superhero movie. We'll see what happens, man. If it's right, I'm there."
It isn't known if F. Gary Gray has even met with anyone at Marvel yet, but if he has, this »

Creating a band for a movie is no easy feat. Music has to be written, the actors have to be trained to (pretend to) play their instruments, a name and background have to be established… not a simple undertaking.
This week, we see another movie band brought to life with Ricki and the Flash. Starring Meryl Streep as a rocker who tries to make amends with her family, the film is sure to feature some wicked jams courtesy of everyone’s favourite 19-time Oscar nominee. Mamie Gummer, Sebastian Stan, and Kevin Kline also star.
Some fake movie bands leave a lot to be desired, but some have been so good that we would buy their album in a heartbeat if it were real. Who can forget the iconic rock jams of Stillwater and Spinal Tap, or the theremin-heavy experimental vibes of the Soronprfbs?
If you think you know your fake movie bands, »

The pair discuss the possibility of contacting Tony Stark, but Falcon suggests another person to get in touch with instead.
Speaking to BuzzFeed, Stan said that Bucky is unlikely to trap himself.
"I think [what Bucky was caught in was] more of a vice," he explained. "But it would never happen at his own hand, by his own doing.
"In terms of that scene in Ant-Man, I've seen some of the ideas people have about it, and I would just say that whatever you're seeing on the surface, it's not as obvious as that.

While discussing their latest movie Vacation, Spider-Man screenwriters Jonthan Goldstein and John Francis Daley have said that they will be screened his scenes this coming weekend. “We hear good things,” Goldstein told Vulture. “We might even get to look at the Spidey suit, which is exciting.”

Seeing Matt Damon in an astronaut suit may evoke bad memories for Interstellar fans, but forget Dr. Mann, for in Ridley Scott’s Oscar-tipped space oddity The Martian, the actor is playing an intrepid explorer cast astray on the Red Planet.
With no option but to “science the shit” out of his surrounding supplies, Damon’s lone astronaut is forced to carry out a mini-terraforming mission, growing food on a hostile environment that is designed for anything but. First off, his Mark Watney will be forced to send out an Sos signal from the sun-scorched planet, before hunkering down for a gruelling 4 years as the Ares 3 crew return for the man they left behind.
Lifted from the pages of Andy Weir’s eponymous best-seller, there’s already tremendous amount of buzz surrounding The Martian following its spine-chilling first trailer. With a cast that includes Jessica Chastain, »

Ever since Captain America: Civil War was announced back in October, during Marvel's now-legendary press event, fans have wondered which superheroes will be siding with Captain America and which will align themselves with Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.). Production is still happening in Atlanta, where Jeremy Renner was spotted wearing a hat which teases the side his character Hawkeye may be on. The hat features an embroidered logo that reads "Team Captain America," seemingly revealing where Hawkeye's allegiance truly lies.
Captain America: Civil War takes place after the events of Avengers: Age of Ultron, as Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) leads the new team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. After another international incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to enlist the services of the team. The new status quo »
With enough post-credits stings and cameo appearances to sink a helicarrier, the Marvel Cinematic Universe is synonymous with fan service, as studios and directors string the shared story along with each passing installment. As the latest addition to the pack, Peyton Reed’s Ant-Man was no different, packing both a mid-credits and post-credits sting as the company’s grand universe shifts toward Joe and Anthony Russo’s momentous Captain America: Civil War.
Due for a release in May of next year, there’s still an awful lot we don’t know about the threequel beyond its cast members and the underlying superhero legislation that thrusts a wedge between Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. Boasting a near-unrivalled ensemble cast, there are certainly a lot of spinning plates in Civil War, though during the press rounds for Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, Jeremy Renner hinted that his Hawkeye character will have a “big, physical »

If you haven’t seen Ant-Man yet, we won’t spoil the fun credits scenes in this opening paragraph if you just haven’t had time to make it to the theater and want to go in blind. But just beware that some new chatter from Sebastian Stan has surfaced about the second credits scene that ties into […]

It’s the sneaky Marvel/DC crossover no-one expected! Yes, with the presence of The Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan) and someone playing The Flash the stakes couldn’t be…. Sorry, we’re now being told that this is actually the latest trailer for Meryl Streep’s new family drama/comedy Ricki And The Flash. No superheroes required, unless you count The Streepster herself. Which we do. Jonathan Demme is behind the camera for this one, directing a Diablo Cody script about a rocker who essentially gave up everything for her chance at musical stardom. She’s used to being on tour, but when her long-suffering ex-husband Pete (Kevin Kline) calls to say their daughter Julie (Streep’s real-life spawn Mamie Gummer) has been jilted by her husband-to-be, she’s forced to confront the realities of the family she left behind. Naturally, there’s a little rebonding to be done, especially »
During a promotional interview with Screen Rant to promote this week’s release of his latest film Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, Jeremy Renner has spoken briefly about Hawkeye’s role in the next Marvel movie Captain America: Civil War, as well as sharing a few thoughts on how the studio might proceed after Avengers: Infinity War closes out Phase Three.
“[Captain America: Civil War] is more active, a lot of fun stuff happening in that one,” said Renner. “I can’t speak too much for it. They’re still filming that sucker right now. But yeah, there’s a lot of stuff happening in that one physically for me anyway. Then who knows in the future? I don’t know what’s going to happen.”
The topic of conversation then shifted to Phase Four, and whether Marvel will stick with »

For those who haven't seen Ant-Man in theaters quite yet, there will be Spoilers for one of the post-credits scenes below, so read on at your own risk. There are actually two post credit scenes, one which features Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) and his daughter Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly), and another that helps set up Captain America: Civil War, which is currently filming in Atlanta. This is your last chance to avoid any spoilers, so proceed at your own risk.
The second post-credit scene features Captain America (Chris Evans) and The Falcon (Anthony Mackie) as they have finally caught up with The Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan). The Winter Soldier's robotic arm is caught in some sort of device, as both Cap and Falcon try to figure out how to get him loose. Falcon says that he "knows a guy," as the scene ends, inferring that he will bring Scott Lang »
Spoiler Warning: The following article contains spoilers for Peyton Reed.s Ant-Man. If you haven.t seen the film yet, we recommend clicking away to another one of our wonderful articles. The majority of Ant-Man may have followed the adventures of Scott Lang as the tiny titular superhero, but it was the post-credits scene that looked ahead to Captain America: Civil War. In that scene, Falcon (who fought Scott earlier in the film) brought Captain America to a mysterious location where Bucky Barnes was being held. The former Winter Soldier.s metal arm appeared to be trapped, and while there was no explanation for how he got there, it was evidently something that required calling Ant-Man in to help. Now the actor playing Bucky, Sebastian Stan, has given a little more information on his character he ended up this way. During an interview with Buzzfeed, Stan hinted that Bucky.s »
As many of you have probably seen by now, the post-credits scene for Marvel Studios' latest hit, Ant-Man, teases what's to come in next year's Captain America: Civil War. More specifically, the scene shows Captain America (Chris Evans) and the Falcon (Anthony Mackie) finding a captured Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan) and later discussing what their next move will be. Well BuzzFeed spoke recently with Stan and pressed him for details on how the clip plays into his "Phase 3" movie. “I think [what Bucky was caught in was] more of a vise,” revealed Sebastian Stan. “But it would never happen at his own hand, by his own doing. In terms of that scene in Ant-Man, I’ve seen some of the ideas people have about it and I would just say that whatever you’re seeing on the surface, it’s not as obvious as that.” He continued, “There might be a whole lot more to »
Nate and Chuck are still BFFs! Former "Gossip Girl" stars Chace Crawford and Ed Westwick were spotted in West Hollywood on Saturday night, as Chace celebrated his 30th birthday with a dinner and roast at The London Hotel. The event -- which was presented by Freixenet Spanish Cava and River Virtual Reality -- reunited the on and off-screen buddies for what we're told was a night of "food, cocktails, laughter and dancing." Westwick, brother-in-law Tony Romo and good friend Ashley Fink all roasted the actor during the dinner, all cracking jokes about the birthday boy. Other celeb attendees at the bash included Jc Chasez, "Orange Is the New Black" star Matt McGorry, fellow "Gg" alum Jessica Szohr, Zelda Williams, Caroline Wozniacki, Kevin Zegers, Lucas Grabeel and "Gossip Girl" creators Stephanie Savage and Josh Schwartz. A video message was also shown during the evening, with messages sent in from Taylor Kitsch »

Spoilers Ahead For "Ant-man" Post-credits Scene
The scene in question seems to be in some kind of warehouse/workshop where Captain America (Chris Evans) and the Falcon (Anthony Mackie) find a captured Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan) and try to figure out their next move.
Buzzfeed spoke with Stan the other day and asked for details as to how the clip fits into the larger 'Civil War' movie:
"I think [what Bucky was caught in was] more of a vise. But it would never happen at his own hand, by his own doing. In terms of that scene in Ant-Man, I've seen some of the ideas people have about it and I would just say that whatever you're seeing on the surface, it's not as obvious as that. There might be »

Now that Peyton Reed’s Ant-Man is out in theaters, much like any Marvel movie before it, moviegoers have been pouring over every square inch of celluloid available to discern any potential secrets of easter eggs. From the references to Wasp to news of a sequel, one needn’t look too far to find a forum filled with speculation.
Beyond that, the minuscule hero is due to return for Joe and Anthony Russo’s Captain America Civil War, and over the weekend the director hinted that Scott Lang’s second appearance will be much bigger – literally – than his debut.
“Listen, I think with Hank Pym and Scott Lang, and with that technology, I think it’s safe to say at some point somewhere you’re going to see some real growth…,” said Reed, pausing to look at the camera before continuing, “…for that character. I hedge my bet there, because »
