Ant-Man passes $200 million at the global box office

27 July 2015 4:41 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Despite being the second-lowest opening for a Marvel Cinematic Universe movie behind The Incredible Hulk, Ant-Man has managed to pass the $200 million mark in its second week of release.

The movie dropped 56% on its domestic opening weekend, but still topped the Us box office with $24 million, beating out competition from Adam Sandler’s Pixels, Southpaw and Paper Towns. The movie passed the $100 million mark in just ten days domestically, and its global earnings of $120.4 million has pushed the movie past the $200 million milestone.

Ant-Man will face competition against Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation this coming weekend, but experts say that the movie is tracking low. So if it can maintain its current box office trend, it could make it three weeks at the top of the Us box office.

Peyton Reed details the Thomas the Tank engine stipulations for Ant-Man appearance

26 July 2015 9:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

During an interview with Film School Rejects, Ant-Man director Peyton Reed has spoken about the inclusion of Thomas the Tank Engine in the memorable climactic battle of the Marvel superhero blockbuster, discussing how the scene came about, and the conditions that were imposed by rights holder Mattel in order for Thomas to be included.

“I believe in Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish’s original drafts it was a train set,” states Reed. “At some point in the process that predated my involvement it became Thomas. As I came on, they had not secured the rights to Thomas. We had to do this whole thing where we did this presentation for the people who own the rights to Thomas. Thank God they agreed and found it funny, but there were definite stipulations. For example, nobody could be tied to the tracks and run over by Thomas. Thomas couldn’t be doing »

'Captain America: Civil War' Gives Black Widow a Drastic New Look?

24 July 2015 8:06 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Are you ready for Black Widow to get a makeover? Seems Marvel might be! Actress Scarlett Johansson was spotted away from the Captain America: Civil War set sporting a new hairdo that she tried very hard to hide. An actress with a different hair style wouldn't normally be anything new to report, but the shorn hair is still dyed Black Widow red, a color Scarlett Johansson doesn't usually keep when out of character. Is Natasha Romanova getting a drastic new look?

Since her debut on the big screen in 2010's Iron Man 2, Black Widow has altered her appearance in both hair and suit in each following movie, with Scarlett Johansson showing up in 2012's Marvel's The Avengers, 2014's Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and this year's Avengers: Age of Ultron. And her hair has gradually gotten shooter with each new adventure. But the 'pixie' cut, which is buzzed close to the scalp, »

Peyton Reed reveals the original opening scene for Ant-Man

22 July 2015 3:07 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Yesterday we brought you some comments from Peyton Reed as he outlined the original ending for Marvel’s latest superhero blockbuster Ant-Man, and now the director has revealed an oepning scene that was shot, but ultimately discarded during post-production.

“It was basically a standalone sequence where you really did not see it was Hank Pym,” Reed said. “He was retrieving some microfilm from this originally Cuban general and then it because a Panamanian general… It really was designed in those early drafts to be almost like a Bond movie standalone scene in the beginning. It was going to show the powers. You never saw Ant-Man, it almost felt like an Invisible Man sequence, and it’s really, really cool. [It felt] tonally disconnected from the movie we were making and story-wise, [but] we actually talked at one point about releasing [it] like a standalone, Hank Pym as Ant-Man [short]. Who knows if that will still happen. »

Peyton Reed reveals alternate ending for Marvel’s Ant-Man

21 July 2015 2:39 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Warning: Spoilers for Marvel’s Ant-Man follow. You have been warned…

If you’ve seen Marvel’s latest blockbuster (or if you haven’t, but don’t mind spoilers), you’ll know that the film ends with a set-up for Scott Lang’s (Paul Rudd) next appearance in the McU in Captain America: Civil War, with Luis (Michael Pena) informing Scott that an Avenger – Falcon (Anthony Mackie) is on the look out for him.

Well, according to Peyton Reed, that wasn’t the original ending for the film, as the director has revealed to Cinema Blend that the initial plan was to tie up a loose end in Mitchell Carson (Martin Donovan), with Scott confronting the S.H.I.E.L.D. / Hydra agent:

“At the end of the movie [Carson] gets away and has these Cross particles, and there was a sequence where Ant-Man has an encounter with him,” states Reed. »

Why Marvel shouldn't consider Ant-Man a box office failure

21 July 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

With the news this week that Ant-Man marked the lowest opening weekend since Marvel Studios' The Incredible Hulk, it seems to be viewed in some quarters as a failure.

But we would argue that Marvel should be pleased with the performance of its latest film and be prepared for more relatively modest successes further down the line.

The trouble with Ant-Man

It's small wonder that there has been some surprise over Ant-Man's opening weekend Us gross of $57,225,526 (£36,807,903). The Edward Norton-starring, largely forgotten 2008 film Incredible Hulk (which took $55,414,050 / £35,645,019) was Marvel Studios' first official release, and since then their profile and success has been consistently on the rise.

Ant-Man was a challenge for Marvel, and the company didn't make it easy on itself. It wasn't the first release on the more obscure end of its catalogue, but 2014's Guardians of the Galaxy overcame scepticism with what was probably »

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?

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, »

'Ant-Man' Editor Talks About Working With Peyton Reed, Cut "Wish Fulfillment" Sequence

17 July 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

It took some skilled editors to put Ant-Man, the mighty but micro hero on the big screen. For Disney and Marvel’s Ant-Man, which debuts this weekend, the studio brought in veteran Dan Lebental, who edited the studio's Iron Man, Iron Man 2 and Thor: The Dark World. And this time around, he co-edited the film with Colby Parker, Jr., a frequent collaborator with Peter Berg whose credits include Lone Survivor and Hancock. As Ant-Man opens, The Hollywood Reporter talked with Lebental about working in the Marvel universe, the change from Edgar Wright to director Peyton Reed, and a

'Ant-Man' Viral Video Has Tons of Marvel Easter Eggs

16 July 2015 12:55 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Over the past few weeks, Marvel has released a pair of viral videos for their final Phase Two adventure Ant-Man, which brought back Leslie Bibb's character Christine Everhart from Iron Man and Iron Man 2. In those superhero movies, Everhart was a journalist for Forbes, but now she has taken over as a news anchor for Whih News, where she has been covering the impending release of Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) from prison, after serving three years for stealing millions of dollars from his former employer, VistaCorp. Today we have yet another viral video, where Everhart actually interviews Scott Lang on the eve of his release, but the interview doesn't go quite so well, for Scott, at least.

At the beginning of Ant-Man, Scott Lang is released from San Quentin prison after serving three years of a five-year stretch, but this interview takes place today, July 16, the day before his release from prison. »

Marvel’s Kevin Feige discusses Ant-Man’s “surprise” Avenger cameo

15 July 2015 2:46 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Warning. This post contains a spoiler for Ant-Man regarding a cameo from a certain Avenger. If you’ve been watching all the TV spots, then Marvel has already spoiled it for you, and you’re free to proceed. However, if you want to remain surprised, you should turn back now…

So, if you have been keeping up with the TV spots, you’ll know that Anthony Mackie’s Falcon makes an appearance in the new film alongside Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang, and during an interview with Fandango Marvel chief Kevin Feige has spoken aboput how it all came about…

“That came about in a really natural way, and it was actually the idea of Paul Rudd and Adam McKay. Peyton Reed had pointed out that in heist films, there’s usually a preheist. There’s usually a little adventure mission the characters need to go on before the primary heist – to get a tool, »

Is Marvel's 'Ant-Man' the Weakest Installment So Far?

15 July 2015 9:38 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

After struggling through a long gestation period under first director Edgar Wright and then Peyton Reed (who are both capable of directing movies with humor and style), Marvel's "Ant Man" is finally hitting theaters. While reviews are mixed, the movie is tracking to open well, but I wonder if it has the right stuff to keep pulling audiences during the peak of the intense summer season.  I have been favorably surprised by every one of the Kevin Feige Marvel movies except the wildly indulgent "Iron Man 2.' (I never saw "Thor 2.") That makes "Ant Man" my next-to-least favorite of the new Marvel movies. While "Guardians of the Galaxy" introduced us to a brand-new universe with fresh, hugely entertaining characters, and the world of the Avengers is populated by super-heroes we know and love, "Ant Man" is overly familiar at every turn: The maverick inventor (broadly comedic Michael Douglas) who »

Ten Comic-Book Movie Actors In Famous Music Videos

15 July 2015 12:25 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Who knew? Comic-book movie actors have a big thing for being in music videos by well-known artists. We have compiled a list of ten legendary comic book movie actors that have starred, in some way, in a music video in the past few years. Some may even surprise you…

Here are some stats from our list. Eight out of the ten from the list are from Marvel movies, one from a DC film, and one from a, erm, Mirage Studios property.

Let’s kick off our list, starting with perhaps the greatest love song from 2001.

10. Mickey Rourke (Iron Man 2), Hero – Enrique Iglesias

Before he played the role of Whiplash in Marvel’s Iron Man 2, and indeed before that comeback with The Wrestler, Mickey Rourke was messing about starring in Enrique Iglesias videos, beating up teen hearthrobs and upsetting Jennifer Love Hewitt, who could also be on our list »

Will Phase Three End the Marvel Cinematic Universe?

14 July 2015 4:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Ant-man hits theaters on Friday, and with its release marks the kick-off for Phase Three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Depending on how big of a fan you are, this news will come as either exciting, or painfully boring. A surprise appearance by Agent Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) in Iron Man‘s credits enthralled millions of filmgoers and teased a project geeks only dreamed about. Two box-office-record-breaking Avenger films later and the shared universe has proven itself an unparalleled success in terms of commercial filmmaking, but after the long wait to see Tony, Cap, Thor, and Hulk take on Thanos is realized, the streak of Marvel characters met with open arms and another $100 million weekend may be coming to an end.

12 movies in, and Thanos, the big baddie the movies have been building toward, still has no Infinity Stones (it goes without saying he isn’t very good at this »
