Exclusive: First Ant-Man set photos and scene description

10 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Yesterday Marvel Studios announced that filming was underway on the first Phase Three offering of the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the Peyton Reed-directed Ant-Man, before the first official image of Paul Rudd as Scott Lang was released today. And now, thanks to Flickering Myth reader Jordan Steinmetz and his sister Riley Steinmetz, we’ve got a brief description of today’s filming, as well as a few set photos from San Francisco. They’re petty unrevealing, but we do have a glimpse of Peyton Reed directing the action. Here’s what was going down…

“The scene being filmed today was filmed at an intersection, and included fake rain and a woman walking a dog.They were filming under the name “Bigfoot”, and some old-school delivery trucks were spotted, so possibly a scene set in the past.”

Riley also mentioned that she didn’t notice any of the leads on set, »

First official image of Paul Rudd as Scott Lang in Marvel’s Ant-Man

13 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Filming officially went underway on Marvel’s Ant-Man only yesterday, but the studio has already released the first official image of star Paul Rudd as Scott Lang

The pic shows Rudd in a hoodie standing beneath the Golden Gate bridge. We know that his character starts out as a con-man before he dons the Ant-Man suit (given to him by Michael Douglas’ Hank Pym), and he looks appropriately un-heroic here (the bandaged eyebrow is a nice touch).

With Ant-Man now officially in production (and Marvel in need desperate need of some good press), we should expect to see more images like this one in the coming weeks.

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. »

First Look at Paul Rudd in Ant-man

14 hours ago | Destroy the Brain | See recent Destroy the Brain news »

Yesterday marked the first day of principal photography for Ant-Man. If I’m to be honest, I’m still a bit bummed that Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish have left the project. I think their take on the Marvel Universe could have been one akin to James Gunn’s approach to Guardians of the Galaxy. Alas, we are still getting an Ant-Man film and the casting is pretty great. We also have a look at Paul Rudd as Scott Lang Aka Ant-Man.

From the Press Release

San Francisco, California (August, 18, 2014) – Marvel Studios began principal photography today in San Francisco, California, on its newest Super Hero franchise Marvel’s Ant-Man. The film brings one of Marvel comics’ original founding members of The Avengers into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The production also shoots on location in Atlanta, Georgia, which serves as the base for the film’s production.

Tiff 2014 Adds St. Vincent, Winter Sleep Ans More To The Lineup

15 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Toronto International Film Festival (Tiff) is coming up fast, but organizers are still putting final touches on the festival’s impressive lineup. Highlights of today’s newly announced titles include the world premiere of the anticipated Bill Murray starrer St. Vincent, for which the actor is tipped to garner awards buzz, and Palme D’Or winner Winter Sleep‘s North American debut.

Check out all the announcements below…

Mavericks Conversation With… Denzel Washington and Antoine Fuqua

Denzel Washington is one of the film world’s most prominent leading men, known best for his galvanizing portrayals of both real-life figures (Malcolm X, The Hurricane, American Gangster) and fictional characters (Philadelphia, Devil in a Blue Dress, Flight). Washington returns to the Festival starring in The Equalizer, an intense thriller that reunites him with director Antoine Fuqua (Brooklyn’s Finest, Shooter, Olympus Has Fallen) for the first time since their Oscar-winning collaboration on Training Day. »

First Official Image Of Paul Rudd As Scott Lang In Marvel’s Ant-Man

15 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Marvel’s Ant-Man has only been in production for a mere 24 hours, but the studio has already released the first official image of Paul Rudd as conman-turned-superhero Scott Lang.

Rudd looks appropriately un-heroic here, sporting a dark hoodie, black gloves and an eyebrow bandage. We know that Lang was quite the troublemaker before running into former Ant-Man Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) though (who gives him the Ant-Man tech and trains him to be a superhero in order to pull of a dangerous heist), so he definitely looks the part in this first photo.

This new image follows yesterday’s casting announcement that saw Judy Greer, Bobby Cannavale, T.I., and John Slattery join the oft-troubled superhero project. It’s announcements and reveals like these that will win back some of the disgruntled and skeptical audiences that turned away from the film following Edgar Wright’s departure back in June, and with production now underway, »

Director Peyton Reed (Yes Man, The Break-Up, Bring it On) tweeted the following message today:

Alright, gang. Today is the day. Let's. Get. small. #AntMan

Peyton Reed (@MrPeytonReed) August 18, 2014

There's been a lot of Ant-Man trashing since fanboy favorite Edgar Wright left the project and the script went through several revisions, but I'm still very hopeful for this film. Marvel know what they're doing and I have full faith in them, Reed and the cast to pull this off.

Here's the official press release from Marvel:

'Ant-Man' Underway, John Slattery Back, T.I. and Judy Greer Join Cast

18 August 2014 10:43 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Disney and Marvel announced the start of production on Ant-Man today following all the turmoil involving Edgar Wright dropping out of directing the project and Peyton Reed (Yes Man) stepping into his shoes along with the script getting a bit of an overhaul thanks to Adam McKay and others. All that would seem to be in the past, but the film will never shake the fact fans wanted to see a Wright-directed Marvel feature, but here's to hoping things get sorted out. Along with the announcement that production is underway, the studio also revealed the complete cast, which, as we already knew, includes Paul Rudd as Scott Lang aka Ant-Man, Michael Douglas as his mentor Dr. Hank Pym, Evangeline Lilly as Hope Van Dyne, daughter of Hank Pym, Corey Stoll and Michael Pena, but we also learn today Bobby Cannavale, Abby Ryder Fortson ("Togetherness"), Judy Greer, David Dastmalchian (The Dark Knight, »

Factory 25 Springs For ‘Hellaware'; DigiNext Takes ‘Pass The Light’ & ‘Construction'; Cinedigm Inks Wiesenthal Docu Deal

14 August 2014 7:59 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Brooklyn-based distributor Factory 25 has acquired North American rights to Hellaware, writer-director Michael M. Bilandic’s indie satire about a wannabe photographer caught in the lowbrow-highbrow collision between the NYC art gallery scene and the grimy rapcore world of Juggalo culture. Keith Poulson stars as Nate, whose coked-up YouTube search leads him to a music video by Insane Clown Posse knockoff the Young Torture Killers. The fictional band drew free publicity for the film when online viewers took a controversial music video from the movie for the real thing. Factory 25 will open the film in NYC on September 26 and digitally on September 23.

DigiNext has pacted directly with indie shingle Vision Vehicle Productions for worldwide rights to two features from the label co-founded by actor Malcolm Goodwin (American Gangster, Leatherheads, Breakout Kings, iZombie). Faith-inspired flick Pass The Light stars Cameron Palatas as a 17-year-old high school student who runs for Congress to »

Q&A: ‘Let’s Be Cops’ Director Luke Greenfield on Impersonating a Cop

14 August 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As the director of 2004’s “The Girl Next Door” and a producer on “Role Models” four years later, Luke Greenfield has shown a talent for finding heart in his comedy. His latest film, “Let’s Be Cops,” pairs Jake Johnson and Damon Wayans Jr. as roommates who find that impersonating police officers has its benefits — and dangers. Jake and Damon both star on “New Girl”; did that have anything to do with their casting? Not at all; we shot this movie a year ago and I was deep in postproduction before I even found out about the connection. Now people say, ‘Oh, you’re doing ‘The New Girl’ Movie!” Jake came in and just blew me away. Then I met Damon and had no idea they even knew each other. But they have such an amazing chemistry, onscreen and off. Is it true this film is written from personal experience »

Huge Westworld Casting Update Includes James Marsden, Eddie Rouse, and a Half Dozen Others

9 August 2014 11:05 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

HBO is casting a pretty wide net when it comes to filling roles in its upcoming adaptation of "Westworld," as evidenced by this latest word that X-Men franchise star James Marsden plus seven other notable actors have just signed on.

Per THR's The Live Feed, Marsden will play Teddy Flood, a mysterious new arrival to a small frontier town. He quickly proves both his charm - and his talent with a revolver. His pursuit of a local beauty launches him on a dark journey.

Inspired by Michael Crichton's 1973 film of the same name, the project, which hails from Jj Abrams' Bad Robot Productions, Jerry Weintraub Productions, and Kilter Films, is billed as "a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the future of sin."

Eddie Rouse (Pandorum, American Gangster) has been cast as "Kissy" (short for "Kisecawchuck"), a laconic American-Indian card - and contraband - dealer from the town saloon, »

‘Frozen’ Director Jennifer Lee to Adapt ‘A Wrinkle in Time’ for Disney (Exclusive)

5 August 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jennifer Lee, who wrote, and co-directed “Frozen” with Chris Buck, has chosen her next project: “A Wrinkle in Time.”

Lee will write the bigscreen adaptation of Madeleine L'Engle’s book for Disney in which children travel through time and visit strange worlds in order to find their missing scientist father.

Published in 1962, “Wrinkle in Time” was one of Lee’s favorite novels as a child, and she impressed Disney executives with her take on the project, which emphasizes a strong female-driven narrative and creatively approaches the science fiction and world-building elements of the book.

While Lee adapts “A Wrinkle in Time,” she will continue in her role as part of Walt Disney Animation’s story trust and remain active in projects in development at the division that scored with “Frozen” — its biggest hit ever at the box office with nearly $1.3 billion — and has “Big Hero 6,” based on a Marvel property, »

Robert De Niro's 10 best performances: Deer Hunter, Raging Bull

2 August 2014 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

In 1995 and 1997, Robert Anthony De Niro Jr. had Heat and Jackie Brown released into cinemas. Not his best films or his best performances, perhaps, but mesmerising work in excellent pictures directed by master filmmakers: the former saw him convince for Michael Mann as the cool, meticulous leader of a gang of career criminals; the latter had Quentin Tarantino give viewers a dim crim whose uncontrollable anger contributes to the unravelling of a heist.

For a whole generation of moviegoers who have grown up since, however, the adulation that's universally showered upon De Niro must be perplexing. Occasionally he summons up a portion of his old intensity – his turns in What Just Happened, Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle are the (slim) picks of the last 15 years – but for anyone who got into movies from the late '90s on, he's the funny guy in Analyze This and Meet The Parents, »
