Exclusive: More Set Pics From 'Ant-Man'

4 hours ago

Lr reader 'Josh' sent us some set pics that his brother 'James' took.  Apparently 'James' is out in San Francisco and lives a block away from where they were setting up to shoot "Ant-Man."  The photos show Pym Particles truck hanging around.  Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly and director Peyton Reed (in the hat) are also on the set, and the house they are shooting at looks gorgeous.

Have a look at the images below.

The film brings one of Marvel comics’ original founding members of The Avengers into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Based on the Marvel comic character first published in 1962, Marvel’s “Ant-Man” continues the lineage of epic big-screen adventures chronicled in Marvel’s “Iron Man,” “The Incredible Hulk,” “Iron Man 2,” “Thor,” “Captain America: The First Avenger,” “Marvel’s The Avengers,” “Iron Man 3,” “Thor: The Dark World,” “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” “Guardians of the Galaxy” and »

The Secret Tying Marvel’s Phase II Together: Love and Its Many Sacrifices

4 hours ago

Phase I of the Marvel Cinematic Universe was, in retrospect, a densely plotted affair, with several story threads all tying together – and paying off to glorious effect – in The Avengers; everything from the Tesseract to Loki himself was properly introduced and fully integrated with the rest of the films’ burgeoning continuity, allowing the first phase’s climax to only worry about telling its particular story instead of pulling the narrative dead weight of exposition.

Phase II (which consists of last year’s Iron Man 3 and Thor: The Dark World and this year’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Guardians of the Galaxy), in contrast, has largely eschewed world-building in favor of smaller, more character-driven tales – Tony Stark’s post-traumatic stress disorder, say, or Thor’s world-weariness and simple desire for love over the needs of either his family or an interstellar monarchy.

Shane Black To Helm 'The Destroyer' For Sony Pictures

10 hours ago

Sony Pictures Entertainment announced today Shane Black will direct the film adaptation of the popular adventure book series The Destroyer by Warren Murphy. Penning the screenplay are Jim Uhls (Fight Club) and James Mullaney; Mullaney co-authored and became the sole writer of The Destroyer until the series’ end in 2008. Charles Roven, Steven Chasman, and Andy Horwitz will produce. Michael De Luca and Lauren Abrahams will oversee for Sony Pictures Entertainment.

The Destroyer is based on the series of paperback novels in which Newark cop Remo Williams is framed, sentenced to death, then resurrected following a botched execution.  The reason?  To serve as enforcement arm for Cure, a top-secret, extra-Constitutional arm of the U.S. government.  Along with a seemingly ageless – and often hilarious – Asian assassin known only as Chiun, Williams sets out to "clean up" and take out those who oppose America’s interests.  The surprisingly-heartfelt stories combine edgy old-school »

'Young Ones' New Trailer

10 hours ago

Screen Media Films has released the trailer for for the upcoming sci-fi, western drama "Young Ones" starring Michael Shannon, Elle Fanning, Nicholas Hoult, and Kodi Smit-McPhee.

The film was written and directed by Jake Paltrow.

"Young Guns" is set in a near future when water has become the most precious and dwindling resource on the planet, one that dictates everything from the macro of political policy to the detailed micro of interpersonal family and romantic relationships.  The land has withered into something wretched. The dust has settled on a lonely, barren planet. The hardened survivors of the loss of Earth’s precious resources scrape and struggle. Ernest Holm (Michael Shannon) lives on this harsh frontier with his children, Jerome (Kodi Smit McPhee)and Mary (Elle Fanning).

David Yates In Talks To Helm 'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them'

13 hours ago

Sources are telling the folks over at Variety that David Yates, who directed a few Harry Potter movies including the final “Deathly Hallows” installments, is in talks to direct the first installment of the Harry Potter spinoff trilogy “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.”

There had been talk that Mexican director Alfonso Cuarón was going to be lured back to the Potter universe, but that didn't pan out, although for me I think "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban" was the best Potter film.

Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling is doing the screenplay.

The project follows the adventures of writer Newt Scamander in New York's secret community of witches and wizards seventy years before Harry Potter reads his book in school. This neither a prequel nor a sequel to the Potter series, but an extension of the wizarding world.

“Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” will hit theaters Nov. »

New Filming Location Confirmed For 'Bond 24'

14 hours ago

We all know how James Bond loves to trek the globe. I reported on a couple of the exotic locales we can expect in the next film, nicknamed Bond 24 for now, and now we've got word from MI6 about another location.

Bond 24 is apparently going to be swinging by the town of Obertilliach in Austria ("Austria! G'day, mate! Let's put another Shrimp on the Bar-b....") to shoot a wintry action sequence or two.

Life for the less-than-a-thousand people who live in this town is sure to get plenty exciting when Bond roles into town in January.

What do you think we're going to see? A good old-fashioned ski-based action scene? A bre knuckle brawl across several snow-covered roofs? Something else entirely? Discuss.

14 hours ago

Warner Bros. Pictures and New Line Cinema have revealed the new full trailer for Annabelle, which is the spin-off of 2013's "The Conjuring" and based on the James Wan film's demonic doll.

She terrified you in “The Conjuring,” but this is where it all began for "Annabelle."

Capable of unspeakable evil, the actual doll exists locked up in an occult museum in Connecticut—visited only by a priest who blesses her twice a month.

The film follows John Form, who has found the perfect gift for his expectant wife, Mia—a beautiful, rare vintage doll in a pure white wedding dress. But Mia’s delight with Annabelle doesn’t last long. 

On one horrific night, their home is invaded by members of a satanic cult, who violently attack the couple. Spilled blood and terror are not all they leave behind. The cultists have conjured an entity so malevolent that nothing »

The film is written and directed by Dan Gilroy.

Gordon-Levitt Talks 'Sin City 2,' 'Sandman,' and More

15 hours ago

Joseph Gordon-Levitt has spent quite a lot of time around comic book movies lately. From The Dark Knight Rises, signing on to  star in and possibly direct Sandman, and his work in Sin City: A Dame To Kill For (which opens tomorrow), he's really getting an education in how to make the genre work on screen. In a chat with Moviefone, the actor-writer-director opened up a bit about his experience on the set of the Robert Rodriguez/Frank Miller film, and what he may have picked up from them as he prepares for Sandman.

While some actors have complained openly about how hard it is to create an organic experience when they're surrounded by nothing but green screens, Gordon-Levitt says he embraced the experience in Sin City. The actor filmed his scenes with nothing more than the actors in his scenes and some basic set pieces. The rest of the »

First Glimpse of Evangeline Lilly's 'Ant-Man' Look & Character Clues

15 hours ago

While we may not yet know much about the role Evangeline Lilly is playing in Marvel's Ant-Man, we at least now have somewhat of an idea what she'll look like.  Known for her long locks, which she has sported in most of her well-known work (projects like Lost and The Hobbit), Lilly revealed her new look on Instagram. She also dropped a major hint about her character (more on that later).

And there's also this shot:

As for the rumors surrounding her role, it's long been thought that she could be playing The Wasp. Well, the actress has now revealed that her character's name is Hope Van Dyne. That's right, very similar to Jane Van Dyne- the original Wasp! Draw your own conclusions, but it's possible she's Jane's daughter who ends up taking the Wasp mantle- just as Paul Rudd will play the new Ant-Man to Michael Douglas's original. »

James Cameron's 'Avatar' Sequels To Address 'State of the World'

23 hours ago

Fox's Jim Gianopulos will have you know that sequels aren't made because of the lack of original ideas in Hollywood, but rather due to the first film's success and appeal. Sequels, like the Avatar ones that James Cameron is working on, have a new story with new characters, and their goal is to "take (a sequel) to a place that restores its freshness and originality." That said, Cameron also had a few words to say about the upcoming Avatar sequels and their subject matter.

Cameron told Variety that there's a lot more story left to tell in the Avatar franchise. He also mentioned that the films will deal with the state of the world and human affairs.

“There’s nothing I need to say as an artist about the state of the world and human affairs that I can’t do through the lens of the ‘Avatar’ universe,” he says. »

Is 'Halloween: The Next Chapter' On The Way?

20 August 2014 8:04 AM, PDT

According to the fellas over at Schmoes Know, a long-gestating new Halloween film is finally gaining enough momentum to make its way to the big screen. What remains to be seen is whether or not it will be a direct sequel to Rob Zombie's reboot of the series, a fresh take altogether, or a reboot-within-a-sequel. That last option seems to be the current mindset.

What is known is that Zombie won't be at the helm, and that this is not the rumored Halloween 3D that was being written by Patrick Lussier and Todd Farmer. That film was been scrapped, according Sk's sources, and the new working title is Halloween: The Next Chapter. The franchise may be looking to its own history as it decides what it wants to be. You may recall that the original franchise, essentially, rebooted itself while remaining within the established continuity. After a failed »

New Clues Regarding McNairy's Role in 'Batman v Superman'

20 August 2014 7:09 AM, PDT

Ever since Scoot McNairy joined the cast of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, rumors have swirled about who he could be playing. We know he had  pivotal role in Ben Affleck's Argo, and so it seemed likely that Affleck and screenwriter Chris Terrio (who also wrote that film) had something interesting in mind for the actor. Right away, people wanted to say he was Nightwing. Others thought he'd perhaps just be some sort of secondary human villain, like a lackey for Lex Luthor. 

But now we can confirm one thing: It's definitely a role that requires CGI effects.

A few spy pics from the Detroit set have revealed McNairy walking around with his suit pants rolled up, exposing the kind of green tights that are used for CGI enhancement/replacement. Some have been quick to say that this means he's playing The Flash. BadAss Digest's sources claim that »
