Box Office: Ant-man Stomps On The Competition In The UK With $6.2 Million Haul

21 July 2015 5:44 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Minions has been at the top of the UK box office for three weeks now, but Ant-Man finally dethroned the animated feature this past weekend with $6.2 million. That may not sound like a lot (especially when compared to how the movie fared in North America), but it's a higher debut than both Captain America: The First Avenger ($4.6 million) and The Incredible Hulk ($5.1 million). Inside Out and Southpaw open in the UK this Friday which could pose a problem for Ant-Man, but it's now the school holidays, so parents have had the entire week to take their kids to see the latest Marvel release. It's performing well everywhere, so here's hoping we get news on a sequel in the near future! Be sure to check out my review of the movie by clicking here. Have you seen it? »

Kevin Feige says a character from Ant-Man will play a huge role in Marvel’s Phase Three movies

21 July 2015 3:21 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Warning: Spoilers for Ant-Man below…

A couple of weeks ago, Marvel head honcho Kevin Feige said there are big plans for The Wasp off the back of Ant-Man (read our reviews here and here), but now we could have some new light on what he means.

“It’s going to be certainly a part of our Phase 3; some of the films we’ve announced in Phase 3″ Kevin Feige revealed to Yahoo! “It is going to be a very important moment [in Ant-Man], and — spoiler alert! — we see that suit for the first time, and her father now is finally giving it to her and realizes that he can’t hold her back from what is essentially her destiny. It’s gonna be a very big part of one of our upcoming films.”

Could this be Captain America: Civil War? Or even Avengers: Infinity War?

Rudd Ant Hero Has Worst Marvel Cinematic Universe Domestic Debut to Date

20 July 2015 3:41 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Ant-Man': Paul Rudd as Scott Lang. 'Ant-Man' box office below expectations: Lowest Marvel Cinematic Universe domestic debut Starring Paul Rudd as a bug-like (sizewise) action hero, Ant-Man was expected to open with $60-$65 million from 3,856 U.S. and Canada locations this past weekend, July 17-19, '15. That didn't happen. A mere three days ago, Variety enthused that Ant-Man was "marching to a solid $65 million weekend at the U.S. box office." But instead of a $65 million domestic debut like those of Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger, Ant-Man bowed with a considerably more modest $57.22 million (down from the studio's $58.04 million Sunday estimate), including Thursday evening screenings. This latest Marvel Cinematic Universe entry averaged a highly disappointing – especially for an McU entry with loads of steeper-priced 3D and IMAX / Pfl screenings – $14,841 per location. But really, why "highly disappointing"? Trailing 'The Incredible Hulk' Even taking into account the fact »

Ant-Man: Why the 3 People in That Opening Scene Are Important

20 July 2015 12:00 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Marvel movies are full of little Easter eggs here and there, and Ant-Man starts with a pretty big one: an opening sequence with a young Hank Pym (Michael Douglas, looking exactly like he did circa 1987's Wall Street) and three people. They're in a fight over the particles he's created, and he threatens to walk away from the company. Two out of those three people should look familiar to you, as they've appeared in previous movies. Here's a rundown of who all three are and why they're important in the greater Marvel Cinematic Universe. Peggy Carter Yes, that's Hayley Atwell as Agent Carter all caked in aging makeup. We've seen Peggy as a young woman alongside Captain America and as a 92-year-old woman during an emotional scene in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, so it's interesting to see where she is in between those two instances. She helps found the Strategic Homeland Intervention, »

Box Office: 'Ant-Man' is no. 1 but smallest Marvel debut since 'Incredible Hulk'

19 July 2015 11:43 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

There are a couple of different ways to look at the opening of "Ant-Man."  On the positive side, the Peyton Reed directed superhero flick is the 12th Marvel Studios release to open at no. 1 (they all have, actually).  "Ant-Man" is by far the largest debut for star Paul Rudd and, considering it's title and concept, the film's $58 million opening is sort of remarkable when taken outside the context of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.  That being said, there are some negatives. Like "Avengers: Age of Ultron," "Ant-Man" came under pre-release estimates.  This is the lowest opening for a Marvel Studios release since "Captain America: The First Avenger" in 2011 and it was the only film in the top five this weekend to drop from Friday to Saturday (14.2%).  "Ant-Man" did, however, score an A grade on Cinemascore which indicates strong word of mouth.  It will need it.  This is the first Marvel release »

Box Office: Ant-man Opens With Smaller Amount Than Expected But Passes $100M Worldwide

19 July 2015 10:59 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Ant-Man has been a long time coming, and while analysts predicted an opening of $60 million - $65 million, it now appears as if the movie will finish somewhere around the $58 million mark. That makes it a flop, right? Far from it. While it falls short of the openings of Phase 1 origin story movies like Captain America: The First Avenger ($65.1 million) and Thor ($65.7 million), this figure is miles ahead of many other superhero films and by no means an indication of its ultimate box office success. With an 'A' CinemaScore from moviegoers and postive reviews, Ant-Man is a movie with legs. The problem Ant-Man faces is that Minions has proved to be a bigger threat than expected.    Deadline points out that Disney are happy with this result. It came in at #1 (their twelfth movie to do so) and marks the biggest ever live-action opening at the box office »

Ant-Man tops U.S. box office with second-lowest opening for a Marvel Studios movie, earns $114 million worldwide

19 July 2015 9:11 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Marvel’s latest superhero adventure Ant-Man opened in cinemas worldwide this past Friday, dethroning Minions in the States and continuing Marvel’s perfect streak of number one domestic debuts with $58 million. Internationally, it added a further $56 million from 37 markets, for a global opening weekend of $114 million.

Ant-Man’s domestic debut is the second-lowest for Marvel Studios, beating out the $55 million opening weekend of The Incredible Hulk but falling short of the $65 million posted by Captain America: The First Avenger and Thor. However, it also has the lowest budget of any Marvel Cinematic Universe entry at a reported $130 million.

‘Ant-Man’ Legs It To $56.4M Overseas; Bigger Than ‘Thor’, ‘Cap 1′ – Intl Box Office

19 July 2015 9:04 AM, PDT | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

Refresh for latest… Disney/Marvel’s Ant-Man sprang into action in 37 offshore markets this frame, colonizing $56.4M in the process. That falls pretty much in line with expectations which were in the $55M-$60M range, based on debut performances of other Marvel titles in the same territory batch. Contrary to the Stateside bow, Ant-Man is currently tracking +23% versus Thor and +44% versus Captain America: The First Avenger in the same suite of markets. In Asia, it is well… »

Box Office: 'Ant-Man' #1 With Second Weakest Marvel Cinematic Universe Opening Yet

19 July 2015 8:17 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe have come to be recognized as cinematic juggernauts, but not everything can be a near-$100 million opener. Ant-Man, somewhat of a lesser known Marvel property when it comes to general audiences, ended up with the second smallest opening weekend for any of the twelve McU properties to date, opening with $58 million, just a couple million ahead of 2008's The Incredible Hulk, which hardly seems like an McU movie at this point. That said, the audience still loved it, giving it an opening day "A" CinemaScore and if history of Marvel movies tell us anything, even if the first one opens weak that doesn't mean the second one will. Thor opened with $65.7 million in 2011 and Captain America: The First Avenger opened with $65 million that same year. In 2013, Thor: The Dark World blew that original opening away with $85.7 million while Captain America: The Winter Soldier opened with $95 million just last year. »

Weekend Report: 'Ant-Man' Raids Box Office

18 July 2015 10:18 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

[Update] Ant-Man opened to $57.2M (was $58M) at the domestic box office, slightly under its projected $60-$65M opening, becoming the 12th film in Marvel's Cinematic Universe to open at #1. On 3,856 screens the film's per screen take was $14,840 (was $15,051). It's a good thing that the Paul Rudd superhero film has an "A" CinemaScore as that's the lowest per-screen average of any of the 12 films. Coming in just slightly above Ant-Man is 2008's The Incredible Hulk ($15,810 per) Thor ($16,618) and Captain America: The First Avenger ($17,512). Disney/Marvel's marketing team must be given some kudos though. Even given the strong Marvel brand, the challenges of marketing a character unknown to the public at large, whose power is getting really tiny and controlling ants, was obvious. They wryly dealt with it head-on in their first trailer, where Paul Rudd's character asks if "it's too late to change the name," a scene that, though this »

Poll: How Would You Rate Marvel's Ant-man?

17 July 2015 6:01 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Ant-Man has been on quite the journey. Announced before even Iron Man was released, it was constantly delayed as Edgar Wright worked on his Cornetto Trilogy (keeping the character out of The Avengers as a result). When the filmmaker did finally start putting together the Marvel movie...well, it's fair to say that by this point, we all know how that story turned out! Marvel obviously didn't abandon the movie though, as Yes Man director Peyton Reed took over from Wright while star Paul Rudd and Anchorman's Adam McKay got to work rewriting his and Joe Cornish's screenplay. Now, the movie which brings Phase 2 to a close is finally here.  Considered another "risk" for Marvel, critics have responded well to Ant-Man and it's poised to open with a similar amount to Phase 1 movies like Captain America: The First Avenger and Thor. That's no bad thing!  So, not movie is in theaters, »

Box Office: Ant-man Kicks Off North American Run With Solid $6.4 Million On Thursday

17 July 2015 8:31 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Marvel's Ant-Man earned an impressive $6.4 million during late night showings on Thursday, an impressive - if not amazing - start for the finale to Phase 3. Guardians of the Galaxy (which also introduced relatively obscure characters and had a strong comedic tone) took $11.2 million last year and ended up far exceeding expectations. It doesn't seem like Ant-Man will do the same, but The Hollywood Reporter is confident that it's stil going to end the weekend with between $60 million - $65 million. That's far from bad and similar to the openings of many of the Phase 1 origin stories like Captain America: The First Avenger and Thor.  Others believe the latest Marvel movie could earn less, but it faces a lot of competition thanks to Minions and the R-Rated Trainwreck. Guardians of the Galaxy didn't have that same problem and also had the advantage of having a sequel announced shortly »

Prison Tale ‘In the Sanctuary of Outcasts’ Being Adapted Into Movie (Exclusive)

16 July 2015 2:42 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Neil White’s prison memoir “In the Sanctuary of Outcasts” is being developed as a movie by veteran producer Stratton Leopold, with Dax Phelan writing the adaptation, Variety has learned exclusively.

White was a successful publisher in the early 1990s before being arrested for bank fraud. His book was published in 2010 by Morrow, 15 years after he served 12 months of an 18-month sentence in a minimum security prison in Carville, La. The facility served as a home to quarantined patients of leprosy, also known as Hansen’s Disease.

His account details the convergence of inmates from different cultures, prison guards, leprosy patients, public health workers and an order of nuns. White won the author of the year prize in 2010 from the Southern Library Assn.

“I was captivated by White’s transformation from very successful but image-driven magazine publisher to federal convict to the man he is today and, equally, by the »

Box Office Predictions: 'Ant-Man' Looms Large, but How Large Will the Marvel Movie Loomc

16 July 2015 9:09 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Laremy is a little under the weather so I'm taking over for today's predictions write-up, but the numbers are all his and he's got an interesting call at #1, at least as far as the number is concerned. He's got Ant-Man in the top slot, which isn't too surprising, but the $67 million prediction is an interesting one, but I can see where he's coming from. This is an origin story for a lesser-known Marvel character and looking back in time, in 2011, Captain America: The First Avenger opened with $65 million and earlier that same year Thor opened with $65.7 million. So Laremy has taken a mild bit of inflation in mind and gone just a couple notches higher. Of course, we can't overlook the success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe since 2011 and last year's Guardians of the Galaxy, which was even more of an unknown property and it opened to the tune of $94.7 million. »

Update: Hayley Atwell & Chris Evans Drop The Dubsmash Gauntlet; K.O. Clark Gregg

15 July 2015 4:00 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

If you follow Hayley Atwell (Captain America: The First Avenger) on Twitter, you probably know by now that over the past few weeks, she's more or less become the queen of Dubsmash, a popular new iOS app that allows users to lipsync with popular songs, movie lines, and a variety of other sounds. Over the past weekend at San Diego Comic-Con, Atwell found her Dubsmash skills put to the test as she and Agent Carter co-star James D'Arcy (Let's Be Cops) found themselves locked in a fierce competition with Clark Gregg (The Avengers) and the cast of Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.. In case you missed Cbm's recap on Sunday night, the final entry featured the full Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. cast singing along to Queen's "We Are The Champions" before revealing Gregg decked out in a full Peggy Carter outfit, red hat and all.
