Wedding Ringer, The | Review

16 January 2015 12:00 PM, PST | SmellsLikeScreenSpirit | See recent SmellsLikeScreenSpirit news »

The pieces are all there with The Wedding Ringer. It stars Kevin Hart, who is currently enjoying a wildly successful standup career, has a popular show on Bet (Real Husbands of Hollywood) and is on a bit of a hot streak at the box office (About Last Night, Think Like a Man, and Ride Along). You'd have to be pretty dense to deny that Kevin Hart is one of the biggest stars working today. The movie also stars Josh Gad, who had a bit of a star turning performance as the comedic snowman Olaf in last year's Frozen. Even the screenwriter (Jeremy Garelick, also directed) has The Break-Up under his belt. So while The Wedding Ringer has at least some of the necessary elements of a good comedy, it doesn't really come together cohesively in any kind of memorable way. The Wedding Ringer has to settle for being a comedy that's intermittently funny, »

'The Wedding Ringer' (2015) Movie Review

15 January 2015 11:20 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Let's clear up a few things about The Wedding Ringer right off the bat. First, it's a Kevin Hart film. If you don't like Kevin Hart (I do) then don't go see the movie, you most likely won't enjoy it at all. Secondly, it's rather misogynistic. This is more a bromantic comedy than a romantic comedy as the men primarily speak as if the ladies aren't in the room. If such comedy offends you, perhaps you too might want to sit this one out. Otherwise, The Wedding Ringer is a mixed bag. I smiled and laughed frequently while I found myself saying, "Okay, get on with it," more than once. It's not a strong brom-com contender, but it should satisfy the right audience in a pinch. There is little out of the stereotypical norm as we meet Doug (Josh Gad), an overweight, nerdy, loner type, who's engage to be married to Gretchen, »

Trailer Trashin’: Meet the Size-Changing Avenger in Ant-Man

14 January 2015 1:57 PM, PST | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

It’s not even halfway through January, dear readers, and we’ve already seen trailers for many of the year’s big movies. Such is the case with this week’s Trailer Trashin’ column, which examines our first look at Marvel’s upcoming July release Ant-Man.

Premise: Petty thief Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) must aid his mentor Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) in safeguarding the mystery of the Ant-Man technology – which allows its user to decrease in size but increase in strength – from various new threats, and plot a heist that will save the world.

My take: It’s been a long, strange journey to the silver screen for Marvel’s size-changing hero Ant-Man. Marvel Studios began developing the project way back in 2006, when they hired English filmmaker Edgar Wright – the man who brought us Shaun of the Dead (2004), Hot Fuzz (2007), Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010), and The World’s »

Kevin Feige comments on Ant-Man “disagreements” with Edgar Wright

9 January 2015 11:45 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With the accompanying press release for the first Ant-Man trailer came the news that original director Edgar Wright and his writing partner Joe Cornish will not receive a screenwriting credit on the twelfth instalment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, despite spending the best part of a decade working on the script. Instead, the duo will receive a “Story By” credit, with star Paul Rudd and Anchorman helmer Adam McKay contributing enough of a rewrite following Wright’s depature to gain sole credit.

We still don’t know the full details concerning Wright’s departure, but Marvel chief Kevin Feige has briefly spoken about the split during a chat with EW, stating that: “It is true that there were disagreements about the direction the script should take. Everything was above board. Everything was done with everybody else’s knowledge. There was a sense of ‘We’re going in this direction, you »

New images, concept art and Yellowjacket details from Marvel’s Ant-Man

8 January 2015 11:49 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Yesterday Marvel released the first trailer for Ant-Man [watch it here], the studio’s second movie of 2015 after Avengers: Age of Ultron, and now we have some new promotional images of Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang both in and out of the Ant-Man suit, as well as some images and ‘Ant’s Eye’ concept art…

Meanwhile, Corey Stoll has revealed some details about his character, the villain Darren Cross, who will be suiting up as Yellowjacket: “[Darren Cross] was this child prodigy that Hank Pym nurtured. He started to become aware of this fabled technology that can shrink people to half an inch. Now he’s discovered his own version of that technology-which has a psychotic effect on people if they use it too much.”

As for Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang, director Peyton Reed states: “He’s not used to being a hero. He’s more like George Clooney in Ocean’s Eleven. He »

Thoughts on the Ant-Man Trailer – Flickering Myth Reaction

8 January 2015 4:41 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Flickering Myth team react…

As with every new trailer for a superhero movie, there are those who like it, and those who don’t. In the case of Ant-Man, the feeling across the Internet has been more or less the same: it’s okay.

See Also – Watch the first trailer for Marvel’s Ant-Man

But what about the writing and editorial staff of Flickering Myth? Did they join the consensus of, “it’s okay”, or did they have other thoughts?

Ozzy Armstrong: While I think the film may be decent, I was a little underwhelmed by this trailer. It had everything I expected – mild humour, sagely wisdom and insect related action, but it fell a little flat. Still, definitely not writing it off yet and will still happily toddle off to the cinema to watch it.

Kris Wall: It looks enjoyable, certainly not the showstopper I’ve come to »

No screenwriting credit for Edgar Wright on Ant-Man, Kevin Feige briefly talks plot details

7 January 2015 11:18 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last night Marvel Studios debuted the first trailer for Ant-Man [watch it here] – Marvel’s second movie of 2014, and one that’s been in development since before the launch of the Cinematic Universe.

Back in 2003, British filmmaker Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead) and writing partner Joe Cornish (Attack the Block) wrote a treatment for the miniature hero and original Avenger, and in 2006 the duo were hired by Marvel Studios to develop the project as part of the McU’s initial slate of films. After working on several drafts of the script, Wright finally started moving towards pre-production late in 2013, before the shock news came last May that the director had parted ways with Marvel due to creative differences.

Following the appointment of Peyton Reed (Down with Love) as Wright’s successor, Adam McKay (Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy) was brought in to contribute to the script with star Paul Rudd. Well, »

“Scott, I’ve been watching you for a while now. You’re different. Now, don’t let anyone tell you that you have nothing to offer.” Ant-Man may feature a superhero who can shrink to microscopic sizes, but that unique ability could expand Marvel’s cinematic universe in a big way. Marvel has released the first trailer for Ant-Man, featuring a lot of screen time for Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas, while also teasing an impressive supporting cast.

Press Release – “Set for release in the United States on July 17, 2015, the film is directed by Peyton Reed (“Bring it On,” “The Break-Up”) and stars Paul Rudd (“I Love You Man,” “Role Models”) as Scott Lang aka Ant-Man, and Michael Douglas (“Behind The Candelabra,” “Wall Street”) as his mentor Dr. Hank Pym and Evangeline Lilly (“The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug,” “Lost”) as Hope Van Dyne, daughter of Hank Pym.

10 Directors to Watch: Comedy Scribe Jeremy Garelick Gets Last Laugh

2 January 2015 4:00 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

When Screen Gems releases “The Wedding Ringer” on Jan. 16, the Kevin Hart comedy marks not only screenwriter Garelick’s directorial debut, but also the end of a very long and winding road for the project.

“I wrote it over 13 years ago with Jay Lavender, when it was called ‘The Golden Tux,’ ” he says. (The team also co-wrote 2006’s unusually realistic relationship comedy “The Break-Up” for Jennifer Aniston and Vince Vaughn.) “I was shooting second unit in Dublin on Joel Schumacher’s ‘Veronica Guerin’ at the time, and Jay was in L.A. We sent stuff back and forth, and we sold it in 2002 to Todd Phillips.” Since then, the project may have languished, but Garelick — a Yale graduate who started at CAA before getting his big break as Schumacher’s assistant — has worked hard to learn everything he could about becoming a director.
