Box Office: Early Tracking Indicates That Ant-man Will Be Yet Another Hit For Marvel

22 hours ago | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ant-Man is tracking to open with as much as $65 million at the North American box office on July 17th. That would be a big win for the movie, especially as tracking two weeks ago was nearer the $55 million - $60 million range. As you can see from the Tweet below, it could potentially go even higher than that depending on the reviews and early word of mouth. Guardians of the Galaxy far exceeded expectations in 2014, so there's really no reason why Ant-Man can't and won't do the same. We'll just have to wait and see how thing go.  These numbers are comparable to both Captain America: The First Avenger and Thor, but as the movie is apparently considered more family friendly than those, it could easily overperform. Ant-Man's budget is said to be around the $130 million mark, so it being a hit won't »

Could Ant-Man 2 Be A Hank Pym Prequel?

1 July 2015 7:20 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Ant-Man has yet to hit theaters, but – as we’ve come to expect from any Marvel Studios project – there’s already been plenty of talk about a sequel. The tiny Avenger’s big screen debut is tracking well and gaining positive reviews from fans and Marvel directors alike, so as long as it’s not a shocking disappointment, Ant-Man 2 is almost inevitable.

Peyton Reed has already stated that he’d love to direct another film centering on the goofily named hero, and now he’s expressed his desire to shed some of the spotlight on the old Ant-Man, Hank Pym.

More News From The Web

Pym, who’s played by Michael Douglas, is the original Ant-Man who passes the mantle to Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang. His history with S.H.I.E.L.D. and heroics will be teased in the movie, but Reed has revealed that there’s »

Which Future Marvel Movie Could Be Set In The Past?

29 June 2015 1:37 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Ever since Iron Man came out in 2008, most of Marvel.s movies have followed each other chronologically. Excluding flashbacks, the only exception so far has been 2011.s Captain America: The First Avenger, and even that caught up to the present when Steve Rogers awoke from suspended animation. ABC.s Agent Carter provided Marvel fans with another period piece, but so far there haven.t been any other movies that have taken place in the past. However, according to Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige, that may be subject to change at some point in the future. During an interview with io9, Feige admitted that it.s possible that one of their future big screen projects could take place in the past. Feige said:  Certainly we could [set another one in the past]. There are no rules. I think the majority of them will be chronological, but not all of them necessarily. »

29 June 2015 8:33 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Those who have been clamouring to have a big screen solo adventure for Black Widow might just have to wait a little bit longer, because according to Kevin Fiege, The Wasp could be a major part of the McU.

Speaking at a press event for Ant-Man, Feige talked about The Wasp and her place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

“We have plans for her in the future,” he said. “And we see that not-so-subtly in this film [Ant-Man].”

Evangeline Lilly’s Hope Van Dyne has not been confirmed for the next up coming ensemble movie Captain America: Civil War, but could a special cameo be in play?

Why You Shouldn’t Trust Box Office Predictions

28 June 2015 7:25 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This week in The Callow Way, Neil Calloway looks at projected box office takings…

I saw the headline and was momentarily confused “Marvel’s Ant-Man tracking $55-$60 million domestic opening weekend”. “Hold on,” I thought, “The movie hasn’t been released yet.” Then I realised it referred to its predicted, rather than actual opening box office. As Flickering Myth reported, that would make it one of Marvel’s lowest grossing films, down at the bottom of the list with The Incredible Hulk from 2008 and some way behind the next lowest grossing films from the Marvel stable, Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger, who both had a $65 million dollar opening weekend in 2011.

As FM pointed out, while box office is still king, Us domestic box office is becoming an increasingly smaller factor in whether a film is a success, however, I did wonder whether tracking predictions of a movie’s »

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced this week that the Los Angeles City Council, in a unanimous vote, approved plans for the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures. Construction will begin this summer, and ceremonial groundbreaking festivities will occur this fall.

“I am thrilled that Los Angeles is gaining another architectural and cultural icon,” said Mayor Eric Garcetti. “My office of economic development has worked directly with the museum’s development team to ensure that the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures will create jobs, support tourism, and pay homage to the industry that helped define our identity as the creative capital of the world.”

Marvel’s Ant-Man tracking $55-$60 million domestic opening weekend, two more TV spots released

26 June 2015 1:55 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With three weeks to go until the release of Marvel Studios’ final Phase Two offering, it’s being reported that Ant-Man is tracking a domestic opening weekend of $55-$60 million.

While that’s certainly a solid opening for a new franchise, the bottom end of that range would put it on par with Marvel’s lowest-grossing film to date, 2008’s The Incredible Hulk, which pulled in an opening weekend of $55.4 million on its way to a domestic total of $134.8 million and worldwide gross of $263.4 million. Marvel’s next two lowest earners, Captain America: The First Avenger and Thor, both opened with $65 million in 2011.

Of course, the international box office has come a long way since 2008, as has awareness of the Marvel brand, so you’d have to expect Ant-Man to exceed its domestic opening weekend overseas, and comfortably overtake »

Benedict Cumberbatch, Kevin Hart, Emma Stone and 319 others invited to vote for Oscar

26 June 2015 11:50 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Strangely dropping a press release on a historic day where the nation's attention is elsewhere, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences revealed their annual list of new member invitees this morning.  For those who criticize the makeup of the Academy there was some good news and the stark realization the organization still has a long way to go. The Academy has spent the last eight to 10 years attempting to diversify its membership and this year's class mostly reflects that. There are significantly more invitees of Asian and African-American descent, but the male to female disparity is still depressing.  Out of the 25 potential new members of the Actor's Branch only seven are women.  And, no, there isn't really an acceptable way for the Academy to spin that sad fact. Additionally, It's important to realize the 322 people noted in the release have only been invited to join Hollywood's most exclusive club. »

Academy Invites Record 322 New Members in Push for More Oscar Diversity

26 June 2015 10:59 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences continues to push for diversity, sending membership invitations to 322 individuals, including a healthy number of people who can help change the org’s demos.

Among the invitees are David Oyelowo, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Felicity Jones, Emma Stone, Rosamund Pike, Bong Joon-ho, Justin Lin and Francois Ozon. The Academy has been reaching out to women, foreign-born artists and people of various races, ethnic backgrounds and ages.

Accusations of Academy bigotry surfaced yet again in January when the list of Oscar nominees included Caucasians in all 20 acting categories, and few women or racial minorities among the other categories. Director Ava DuVernay and actor David Oyelowo of “Selma” had seemed like strong contenders, giving many people hopes of breakthroughs. After initial anger at the Acad, activists began to shift their protests to industry hiring practices. For example, 323 films were eligible for 2014 awards — which means AMPAS should theoretically »
