Say What You Will About the Academy - But Some Cool International Names Among 2015 New Member Invitees

11 hours ago | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Academy invitee Eddie Redmayne in 'The Theory of Everything.' Academy invites 322 new members: 'More diverse and inclusive list of filmmakers and artists than ever before' The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has invited 322 individuals "who have distinguished themselves by their contributions to theatrical motion pictures." The press release adds that "those who accept the invitations will be the only additions to the Academy's membership in 2015."

Ant-Man’s First Adventure Is A Total Wash In New Clip

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

Marvel has taken a lot of crap over the years about its incredibly shrinking superhero (“so he just gets really small?”), but the studio is setting the record straight on just how cool the comic-book character’s miniaturizing technology can be. In the first clip from Ant-Man, Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) tests out his new suit for seemingly the first time, only to get the surprise of his life when merely standing in a bathtub turns into a hair-raising fight to stay alive.

That we hear Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) dryly communicating with Scott over some sort of suit-contained radio suggests that this scene takes place after Scott steals the Ant-Man armor but before Hank recruits him to actual don the costume and fight for good.

With Ant-Man hitting theaters next month, I’m going to do my best to stay away from the rest of the promo material. »

Sony Slates 'I Saw the Light' for Awards Slot, Tom Hiddleston Looking for First Nom

29 June 2015 3:38 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Sony Pictures Classics has dated Marc Abraham's I Saw the Light for a Nov. 27 release, which all but guarantees an Oscar push for the film and most likely a big push for Tom Hiddleston who stars in the feature as legendary country western singer Hank Williams. The pic is now slotted alongside fellow Oscar hopeful The Danish Girl, though both films will probably be looking to make a big splash on the Fall film festival circuit, already establishing an awards season narrative before the general public lays their eyes on either of them. The pic, which also stars Elizabeth Olsen, Bradley Whitford, David Krumholtz and Cherry Jones, chronicles Williams' meteoric rise to fame and its ultimately tragic effect on his health and personal life. Hiddleston is probably best known to most as Loki from The Avengers film franchise, but 2015 is looking to be a year where he makes a »

Marvel Says the New Spider-Man Will Be a ‘John Hughes Movie,’ So We Imagined Just What That Would Look Like

29 June 2015 10:38 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

If The Avengers was a sports movie, and The Winter Soldier was a '70s conspiracy film, then what will the new Spider-Man be? According to Marvel's Kevin Feige, the answer is: a John Hughes movie. "It’s the soap opera in high school, and those supporting characters that are interesting," Feige told reporters at the Ant-Man junket this weekend. "We haven’t seen a John Hughes[–style] movie in a long time ... we’re inspired by him, and merging that with the superhero genre in a way we haven’t done before excites us." But what would a John Hughes superhero movie look like? Let us present Pretty in Red and Blue, the story of a young kid from the wrong side of the 7-train tracks who longs to fit in with the cool kids. His efforts seem hopeless, until a chance encounter with a radioactive spider helps him learn to believe in himself. »

Kevin Feige says Marvel has “big plans” for The Wasp

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?

'Doctor Strange' Will Have New Origins and Mind Bending Weirdness

29 June 2015 8:05 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While next year's Captain America: Civil War will be Marvel's big draw in line with Marvel's The Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron, with nearly every established character in the McU making an appearance, it's Doctor Strange that will bring in and establish yet another new character to this sprawling cinematic universe. Some have wondered how Marvel will tackle the character, since a lot has changed in our own modern culture since the introduction of Doctor Strange in the comics. One thing is very much true. It will be a head trip. And stay firmly embedded it ins traditional weird roots.

Spoiler! Ant-Man ends with a very trippy scene that is compared to the ending of 2001: A Space Odyssey. And it may surprise some audiences with just how weird it gets. But according to Kevin Feige, who spoke with Bmd this weekend, we haven't seen anything yet in terms »

What's Ahead For The Wasp In The McU, According To Kevin Feige

28 June 2015 9:25 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

While the McU.s version of The Avengers probably contains the most famous members ever to be on the team, it.s not in fact the first members the group ever saw. Ant-Man and The Wasp have been missing since day one. Potential Spoiler Warning for Marvel.s Ant-Man. With the upcoming Ant-Man movie we.ll get introduced to both characters for the first time.

Comicbook.com has the quote from Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige coming from an Ant-Man press event. In it he was very clear that The Wasp will return and that the upcoming film doesn.t bother just hinting about it.

Kevin Feige Confirms Plans For 'The Wasp' In The Marvel Cinematic Universe's Future

28 June 2015 6:53 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

The Wasp was originally expected to appear in The Avengers (she even appeared in some early storyboards), but Marvel decided to give Edgar Wright a little more time to make Ant-Man, stopping both characters from being founding members of that team as they are in the comics. It's a great shame that they've both been absent from the Marvel Cinematic Universe for so long, but that is obviously going to change next month when "Phase 2" comes to a close with Ant-Man. Talking at a press event for Ant-Man yesterday, Kevin Feige had this to say about what's next for The Wasp (Warning: Possible Spoiler Ahead). "We have plans for her in the future, and we see that not-so-subtly in this film [Ant-Man]." That confirms that Hope may end up suiting up by the time the credits roll then, but where could we see her next? Ant-Man 2 hasn't been confirmed, so perhaps »

Marvel's Feige Talks "Spider-Man" Future

28 June 2015 1:39 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

With "Ant-Man" slated to hit cinemas soon, Marvel's Kevin Feige has taken some time out to talk "Spider-Man" and has shared some further details regarding how their deal with Sony Pictures works.

SuperHeroHype spoke with Feige who only had good things to say about the partnership:

"We're producing that movie for Sony and in partnership with Amy Pascal, so it's been going through the same process of any other Marvel film would, and it's been great. Tom Rothman at Sony has been very supportive in the decisions and obviously the two big ones we announced this week."

Would any of the previous Spider-Man films inspire the upcoming one?

"We're going to have it be its own thing but some of those Spider-Man films… I think Spider-Man 2 is one of the best superhero movies ever, so that's a lot to live up to."

'Jurassic' Holds Off Challengers

27 June 2015 8:28 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Jurassic World took the #1 weekend box-office spot for the third week in a row with $54.2M off a -49% week-over-week drop, just allowing it to fend off Disney's Inside Out, which made $52.1M on a -42.4% decline. With $32.9M in 3,442 theaters Ted 2, however, didn't really make a run at the spot, making less than even the most pessimistic pundits had placed it. Universal's own estimates had the film at $45M - $50M making Ted 2 the second Seth MacFarlane film to under-perform for them. A Million Ways to Die in the West opened in 3,158 venues on May 30 of last year to a still-surprisingly low $16.8M weekend. Ted 2 has a B+ CinemaScore.Included in the Universal report is another Jurassic World record. The film also crossed the $500M mark domestically, the fastest any film has done that, crossing the milestone in 17 days (6/12/2015 - 6/28/2015). The previous record holder, Marvel's The Avengers, »

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.

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 »

Mixed Reactions For Marvel's 'Ant-Man' After First Press Screening Plus New Promos And Pics

26 June 2015 6:22 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Marvel has a couple of hurdles to overcome with "Ant-Man." There's the ever present shadow of Edgar Wright and what-could-have-been looming over the movie, and there's convincing mainstream audiences that the character and movie is just as exciting as anything "The Avengers" have served up. And there's making a movie that's on-par or better than the source material, which the film's co-star Evangeline Lilly says she wasn't impressed with. "I am still trying to figure out how to get my hands on original ‘Ant-Man’ comics. I’ve been given a couple recent ‘Ant-Man’ comics. No offense Marvel, but they are total crap," she told Collider. "I really want to read the original ones, because I got through two and I was like, dude, you can’t force-feed me another one of these magazines. It was terrible. But Janet’s not in them, and neither is Hank and neither is Scott. »

Ant-Man Movie Will See Evangeline Lilly Kick Butt as The Wasp

25 June 2015 3:54 PM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

Marvel Studios recently dropped the embargo on the Ant-Man movie press studio visit pieces a couple days ago during which Marvel chief Kevin Feige was drilled by fellow media members about Evangeline Lilly's role in the upcoming final feature film in Marvel's Cinematic Universe Phase 2.

In the film Lilly plays Hope van Dyne, daughter to Michael Douglas' Hank Pym character and probably Janet van Dyne, though Feige won't outright confirm that. She's seen training Paul Rudd's Scott Lang character as he becomes the new Ant-Man in the trailers, but we never see her in action as The Wasp, the superhero and founding member of The Avengers that Janet van Dyne becomes in the comics.

When pressed for a scoop on how director Peyton Reed utilized Hope van Dyne in the film, Feige was somewhat forthcoming and potentially hinted that she will become The Wasp by the closing credits. »
