Jonathan’s Favorites of 2013

30 December 2013 12:52 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

In past years, I’ve gone back and forth on running an end of the year list. There are always movies that are really well made, but I didn’t personally like and is it even fair to run a “Best” list when there’s the odd movie that I didn’t get a chance to see? It’s enough to drive someone insane and so I decided that we’re doing something a bit different on Daily Dead.

This year, we kick off our “Favorites of the Year” lists and the difference here is that we’re not just highlighting movies. Instead, we’re sharing our favorite genre experiences with readers this year, which could be a favorite movie, collectible, event, or even a performance.

*Note: Many “Best of” articles on other sites turn into flame wars in the comments sections with people fighting over the choices. This isn »

"The World's End" Gets Better With Each Viewing

27 December 2013 5:19 AM, PST | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

Since the start of the Cornetto Trilogy back in 2004 with Shaun of the Dead, a romantic comedy with zombies, Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg, and Nick Frost have gone on to give us their take on the buddy cop film with Hot Fuzz, and now their Sci-Fi comedy The World’s End. It’s weird to say it in what is supposed to be a review of the film, but the less you know about The World’s End going in, the more enjoyable it ultimately is. A large part of the comical glee that the film delivers comes from not knowing exactly which classic Sci-Fi tropes the movie is going to borrow from, so when the first big reveal comes suddenly and unexpectedly, an odd combination of astonishment and amusement can cross your face and stay there for the rest of the film.

Top 10 films of 2013: The World's End

26 December 2013 3:29 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Feature Duncan Bowles 26 Dec 2013 - 23:27

At second place in our rundown of our favourite films of 2013? That'd be The World's End...

Over the past few weeks, Den of Geek writers have been voting for their favourite films of the year. The votes were weighted, calculated, and compiled into a list of our favourites of 2013's films. Here, at number 2, is The World's End...

2. The World's End

This feature contains spoilers.

There are very few filmmakers that carry the accolade of having made a great cinematic trilogy. More often than not, one film at least will prove to be a weak link, or as is so often the case in the last decade, a director or star (or both in the case of Indiana Jones And The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull) will return to a once beloved franchise only to ruin the mythology. Yet as fate would have it, »

Paul Rudd is Ant-man

21 December 2013 2:26 PM, PST | kidspickflicks | See recent kidspickflicks news »

Ever notice Paul Rudd has tiny little man hands? He does (okay, I concede his hands look totally normally proportioned in photos, but on film, his hands are teensy). And that makes it all the more perfect that Rudd will join the Marvel cinematic universe as Ant-Man. Ant-Man is a superhero with the capability to shrink himself in height but retain his strength. The Ant-Man movie has been in pre-production for quite sometime with director Edgar Wright (Scott Pilgrim vs The World, Shaun of the Dead), but is slated to release after The Avengers 2. Ant-Man is slated to release on July 31, 2015.

Paul Rudd Suits Up for 'Ant-Man' Movie

19 December 2013 2:50 PM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Paul Rudd will shrink down a few sizes when he suits up for Ant-Man, a new Marvel superhero movie set to hit theaters in July 2015.

Rudd will portray Ant-Man and his alter-ego Henry Pym, a scientist who discovers a formula that allows him to shrink down to the size of an ant, the BBC reports. For those curious about what such a pint-sized hero can achieve, know this: in his first-ever comic appearance, Ant-Man took down several Soviet agents trying to steal his shrinking serum – and triumphed with the help of, »

Ant-man Movie Hero Named

19 December 2013 11:00 AM, PST | ScifiMafia | See recent ScifiMafia news »

Ant-Man is one of my most anticipated movies of 2015 not only because it will surely be another dazzling display from the Marvel universe, but also because I love and adore the work of its director Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead, The World’s End, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World). Now it just gets better with the addition of its named hero.

Deadline is reporting that Marvel has named its Ant-Man hero, and he is to be played by Paul Rudd. Though he maybe new to super hero action, he’s no stranger to comedy and drama and I have no doubt that he will bring those talents to this project.

We’ll be sure and keep you posted on the latest for Ant-Man. »

Paul Rudd to Star in Marvel's Ant-Man

19 December 2013 10:11 AM, PST | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

After years of development, director Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz) will begin shooting Marvel's "Ant-Man" early next year and has already started the process of finding an actor to play the lead role. A few months ago, we heard that Paul Rudd and Joseph Gordon-Levitt were the front-runners to play the superhero. And now comes word that Rudd is officially in negotiations for the role. While Marvel's and Rudd's representatives are refusing to comment, Rudd has become noticeably slimmer during his appearances for the promotion of "Anchorman 2." »

Paul Rudd is 'Ant-Man': 5 reasons he needs an 'Agents of Shield' appearance

19 December 2013 9:30 AM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

An exciting new Avenger has joined the Marvel Cinematic Universe. According to Variety, Paul Rudd is in early negotiations play the titular character in Edgar Wright's upcoming "Ant-Man."

While the news isn't quite confirmed yet, we're going to get ahead of ourselves and say Rudd needs to show up on "Marvel's Agents of Shield" once he's introduced in the McU. Though that might seem a bit backwards since we just said the ABC series doesn't need more Marvel, it could definitely do with a healthy dose of Rudd. Here's why:

He's great on TV. From playing Mike Hannigan on "Friends" to Bobby Newport on "Parks and Recreation," Rudd always brings joy to the television show he's on. He will absolutely bring that best-friend-you-never-had charm to "Agents of Shield" as well, which brings us to ...

He and Clark Gregg would have the best bromance. "Ant-Man" isn't hitting theaters until July »

Paul Rudd in talks to play Marvel superhero Ant-Man

Anchorman 2's Rudd and Joseph Gordon-Levitt said to be frontrunners for lead in the Edgar Wright-directed movie

Paul Rudd: Hollywood's most lovable man

• Read our Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues – first look review

Paul Rudd on Anchorman 2 - video interview

Anchorman 2's Paul Rudd is said to be in early talks to play the superhero Ant-Man for British director Edgar Wright and Marvel Studios, Variety reports.

Rudd, along with Joseph Gordon-Levitt, has been considered one of the frontrunners for the role of the shape-shifting comic-book icon, which is expected in cinemas in 2015. Wright co-wrote the script with his Hot Fuzz actor Joe Cornish.

Earlier this week, Gordon-Levitt was reported to be considering the lead role in the big-screen adaptation of Neil Gaiman's comic book series Sandman. That may suggest that the timing of Rudd's tilt at Ant-Man is more than a coincidence.

Edgar Wright Discusses His Top Films Of 2013

19 December 2013 3:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Edgar Wright is not only the genius director responsible for Shaun Of The Dead, Hot Fuzz and The World’S End but he is also one of the most influential and talented men working in the Film industry today. With this in mind its extremely interesting to hear the director’s opinions on the films that have been released this year in what has undoubtedly been a brilliant year for the industry. Now Wright has compiled a list of his top ten favourite films released in 2013 which is incredibly refreshing and different to what you may expect. However it should be noted that when Wright decided which releases would occupy his top ten list it was only the 26th November, and therefore there are still many films that the director had yet to see at that time. Here are Edgar Wright’ top ten films of 2013 (so far):

Now That Joseph Gordon-Levitt is 'Sandman,' Paul Rudd is 'Ant-Man'

18 December 2013 8:55 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

After hearing this past fall that Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Paul Rudd were the frontrunners to play Ant-Man in Marvels Phase Three title from director Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead), the deliberation is over, and it seems we have our tiny superhero cast. The Wrap has learned that with Joseph Gordon-Levitt heading to the comic book adaptation of Sandman at Warner Bros., the Anchorman and I Love You, Man star is now taking the lead role as Hank Pym, the man who would become Ant-Man. Recent interviewers have noticed Rudd being in better shape than he was previously, but denied any involvement. Read on! Of course, we wouldn't expect anything less of an actor signing up for the big screen comic book universe. The film would see Rudd playing a scientist who invents a substance that allows him to change his size and communicate with insects. The test reel shown »

Is ‘Anchorman’s Paul Rudd Superhero Material? ‘Ant-Man’ In The Offing

18 December 2013 6:52 PM, PST | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

The long-rumored crowning of Paul Rudd as Ant-Man is finally happening. He is Marvel‘s choice to star as the title character in the Edgar Wright-directed film. Rudd has proven himself adept at light drama and he is exceptionally good at  comedy, but I never really thought of him as superhero material. Wright, who wrote the Ant-Man script with Joe Cornish, showed at Comic-Con two years ago a demonstration of the technology developed that displayed a speck-sized Ant-Man running down the barrel of a gun and then re-emerging in actual size to put a hurting on a bad guy. It was pretty cool stuff, but Wright put the whole thing down to make The World’s End first. He did that mainly because the film’s producer, Working Title’s Eric Fellner, was diagnosed with cancer. Wright — who felt that Shaun Of The Dead — the first leg of what »

Video: Why ‘Scott Pilgrim vs. The World’ Is One of the Deepest Comic Book Films Ever

16 December 2013 10:00 AM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

When Edgar Wright’s Scott Pilgrim vs. The World debuted in 2010, I’ll admit it: I didn’t quite know what to make of it. Wright’s Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz were clearly send-ups of their respective genres, but Pilgrim defied my expectations. Part videogame movie, part comic-book movie, and part coming-of-age story, Pilgrim, based on Bryan Lee O’Malley’s award-winning graphic novel series, was a bold, singular […] »
