Evangeline Lilly said she “held off” from joining Marvel’s Ant-Man after Edgar Wright’s departure

22 November 2014 1:41 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Evangeline Lilly is set to reprise the role of Tauriel next month for Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, after which she’ll be joining another blockbuster franchise as she makes her Marvel Cinematic Debut as Hope Van Dyne in July’s Ant-Man. Speaking to InnerSpace (via Cbm), Lily has revealed that she held off on committing to the film following the departure of Edgar Wright, but was ultimately swayed by replacement director Peyton Reed’s take on the project…

“I was [bummed out] when Edgar and Marvel decided to part ways. I was nervous, and I kind of held off from signing my contract because I actually wanted to wait and see what would happen. I met Peyton [Reed] and we spoke, and I was convinced that I was going to do the project. He has such impeccable taste, he’s so collaborative, so much fun, and »

The Rise, Fall and Rise of Jennifer Aniston

21 November 2014 4:38 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

During the 1990s, Jennifer Aniston was one of the most popular actresses in the world. She may not have been blowing up the box office like Julia Roberts, Meg Ryan or Sandra Bullock, she was instead the star of the hit comedy show Friends – which had turned her into a household name. So popular was Aniston during this period that he hair even became known as “The Rachel”, a much-requested style for hairdressers during the 90s. The show was watched by millions around the world and has become one of the most celebrated Us sitcoms of all-time, launching Aniston and her co-stars into hot property. Particularly as the show couldn’t last forever and the cast would look to transition to the big screen.

Aniston was no stranger to cinema. She got her first break in the horror comedy Leprechaun in 1993, but would take a break during her first few years on Friends. »

The Wedding Ringer Red Band Trailer Not Nearly as Funny as The Wedding Ringer Green Band Trailer

20 November 2014 2:52 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

I actually like raunchy R-rated comedies quite a bit, so please don't take this criticism as coming from someone who's offended.  I'm not.  I'm just not laughing.  I'd still go see The Wedding Ringer when it comes out in January, but it won't be based off this trailer that's for sure.  When I started this post, I hadn't actually seen anything from the film yet (including the earlier trailer) and this red band trailer on its own had me almost ready to write the whole thing off.  But then I went back and watched the green band trailer and actually laughed.  There, I saw a movie that had some jokes and a sense of character.  Here, all I see is every possible use of "fuck" at the marketing team's disposal, dumped into a trailer with little or no context. So I'm almost posting this as an experiment.  I'm including the »

Watch: New Nsfw Red Band Trailer For 'The Wedding Ringer' Lets The F Bombs Fly

20 November 2014 9:56 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Watch out, it’s another wedding hijinx and hilarity movie. And of course this one is about a groom (Josh Gad) who needs a best man for his wedding because he basically has no bffs. So he goes to Kevin Hart, who just happens to be in the fake best man business. Perfect. While it’s “strictly a business relationship,” you know these two are gonna be bromantic besties by the end of the film. Directed by Jeremy Garelick, the filmmaker behind Vince Vaughn’s underrated dramedy "The Break-Up," maybe there’s mild hope for this one to be more than just January comedy filler. The movie also stars Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting, Ken Howard, Cloris Leachman, Jenifer Lewis, Mimi Rogers, and Olivia Thirlby. Here’s the official synopsis: Doug Harris (Josh Gad) is a loveable but socially awkward groom-to-be with a problem: he has no best man. With less than two »

There has been a lot of hype around the Marvel Cinematic Universe over the past few weeks due to the announcement of Phase Three, but before then we have Avengers: Age of Ultron, followed by Ant-Man.

Last week we got our first look at Michael Douglas’ Hank Pym on the set of Marvel’s Phase Three-launching Ant-Man, and now The Daily Mail has given us another set photo which shows Hank alongside his daughter Hope Van Dyne, played by Evangeline Lilly

Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, con-man Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) must embrace his inner-hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), protect the secret behind his spectacular Ant-Man suit from a new generation of towering threats. Against seemingly insurmountable obstacles, Pym and Lang must plan and pull off a heist that will save the world.

Adam McKay on rewriting Edgar Wright’s Ant-Man script

18 October 2014 3:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

After the shock departure of Edgar Wright following years of development on Ant-Man, Marvel Studios brought in Peyton Reed (The Break-Up) as his replacement in the director’s chair, while Adam McKay (Anchorman) also signed on to rework the script by Wright and his writing partner Joe Cornish (Attack the Block). Filming on the Phase Three movie is now of course well underway, and Collider has caught up with McKay, who has spoken about his work on the film, as well as how much of Wright’s original script has made it through to the final product. Here’s what he had to say:

“[Paul Rudd] called me when Edgar Wright stepped away from the project and told me what was going on. I went and met with Marvel, and I was a little dubious just because I’m friends with Edgar and I didn’t know what the story was, and »

Filming is currently underway for Ant-Man in Atlanta, Georgia, and after the Pym Technologies logo was spotted last week we are now getting a look at the man himself Hank Pym, as portrayed by Michael Douglas.

Martin Donovan joins Marvel’s Ant-Man in a “pivotal” role

6 October 2014 1:59 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Despite the fact that principal photography has been underway for a couple of months, Marvel’s Ant-Man has added a new name to its cast, with The Hollywood Reporter revealing that Martin Donovan (Insomnia) has joined the Phase Three superhero movie in a secret role which is apparently pivotal to the plot.

Martin Donovan Joins Marvel’s Ant-Man

6 October 2014 1:51 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

While there’s always something stirring about one Marvel project or another, there’s one property that’s been suspiciously quiet as of late. It’s been a good six weeks since we’ve had any news on their troubled title, Ant-Man. Even then, it was a straw-clutching report about Evangeline Lilly’s haircut.

Now, however, we have something a bit more exciting, as THR reports that Weeds star Martin Donovan has joined the cast. As secrecy surrounding the pic is paramount, there’s very little they can reveal about who it is he’ll be playing. In fact, this is all they would offer:

Donovan’s role is being kept under wraps, but sources say it is pivotal to the story.

A key character in Ant-Man’s story is a rather broad description. As comic book adaptations go, there’s always the tendency to borrow characters from different storylines »

Dwayne Johnson Attached to 'Baywatch' Movie at Paramount Pictures

2 October 2014 8:53 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

We've been hearing about a potential film adaptation of the cheesy lifeguard TV series Baywatch since as far back as 2009. The first iteration had The Break-Up director Jeremy Garelick writing and getting behind the camera while more recent efforts pegged Robert Ben Garant, one-half of the writing duo behind Night at the Museum, to direct the film with Bill Hader briefly rumored for a lead role. Now the film seems to have life again as THR reports Dwayne Johnson is loosely attached to lead what will be a comedic take on the material with We're the Millers writing duo Sean Anders & John Morris set to direct now. More below! Johnson's name has been floated around the project before, but with no solid links. This still seems a little shaky, but an action comedy in the same vein as the 21 Jump Street franchise would be great with Johnson on board. As for the script, »

Dwayne Johnson Will Lead The Baywatch Movie

2 October 2014 3:20 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Dwayne Johnson’s pulling power is most definitely not in question. As soon as his involvement in a floundering franchise is announced, it’s as if he gives them a new lease of life. It’s not hard to see why he’s like audience catnip for series like Fast & Furious and G.I. Joe. He’s an immensely amiable guy, who’s real-life positivity spills over into his characters. The Rock’s got charisma, and Hollywood wants in. Now, we’ve learned from THR where we’ll fall in love with him next – on the beach. Paramount are moving forward on the long-awaited big screen version of Baywatch with Johnson now attached to star.

The good news (aw come on, this is Great news) doesn’t end there. The comedic writing duo behind We’re The Millers, Sean Anders and John Morris, are also “loosely attached” to direct. If their involvement becomes official, »

Josh Gad & Kevin Hart Plot Matrimony Lies 'Wedding Ringer' Trailer

25 September 2014 11:13 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Though awards season is just around the corner, with plenty of hopeful quality movie like Interstellar, Foxcatcher and Gone Girl hitting theaters, the dumping ground of January and February is coming, which means we're getting trailers for those movies too. The Wedding Ringer doesn't really look abysmal, but it certainly doesn't look all that funny in this new trailer. As someone who loves Josh Gad, but doesn't enjoy Kevin Hart, the two stars cancel each other out for me. But I will concede that the joke about the fake groomsmen and The Goonies actually made me laugh out loud, so maybe there's hope for this one. Watch? Here's the new trailer for Jeremy Garelick's The Wedding Ringer from Sony Pictures: The Wedding Ringer is directed by Jeremy Garelick (co-writer of The Break-Up), who co-wrote the script with Jay Lavender.

The Vaughnaissance starts here! HBO has finally confirmed the news that everyone already knew - Vince Vaughn will star in the second season of True Detective.

Michael Douglas says Paul Rudd is too “ripped” for his Ant-Man suit

8 September 2014 11:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

In an interview with MTV, actor Michael Douglas revealed that Paul Rudd is “too ripped” for his Ant-Man costume in the upcoming Marvel Studios movie of the same name.

Douglas stated that, “Paul Rudd is ripped, he’s been training and working out for this picture for a long time. He was so cut, that they had to soften his costume up, with all the built-in six-packs and all of that.”

Rudd plays the character of Scott Lang, who in the comics becomes Ant-Man after stealing the suit from Hank Pym, the original Ant-Man. Douglas plays Pym, although he has stated that he won’t be donning the suit himself: “My costume will be hung up, and Paul will be wearing it in good form”

With the inclusion of John Slattery – who played Howard Stark in Iron Man 2  – there is a chance that we’ll see Hank Pym working with S. »

The Marvel Directors Club – Their Best Films

2 September 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Marvel are continuing to attract plaudits for looking beyond the conventional and predictable when selecting directors for their films. Whether recruiting directors from a predominantly small screen background, or those with prestigious Shakespearean adaptations on their CV, or those with left-field cult work in their recent past, it continues to work to great effect. As much of a shame as it is to see Edgar Wright move on from Ant-Man, he has been replaced with just as interesting a director in Peyton Reed, who has Yes Man, The Break-Up and TV’s The Weird Al Show on his resume.

What Marvel seem to appreciate is that a track record as a really good director is worth a lot more than a track record with big budgets, special effects or comic brook properties. Indeed, some really smart thinking seems to be going into tracing a thread from some of the thematic »
