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.

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, »

‘Ant-Man’ Makes Some Interesting Casting Additions as Production Begins

18 August 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

For months, the mystery of who would take the reigns from Edgar Wright and direct Ant-Man dominated all coverage of the Marvel flick. But ever since the baton was passed to Peyton Reed, focus has been able to switch back to the good ol’ casting frenzy. Today, Marvel sent out a press release announcing that production has officially started in San Francisco on the much-anticipated film. That in itself is exciting enough news, with Reed also tweeting “Let’S. Get. small.” early this morning. He’s a man with a plan, and it’s on a teensy tiny scale. Good things come in small packages, haven’t you heard? But the press release contained something even more amazing: a barrage of cast members to round out the film’s core ensemble. The new additions are Bobby Cannavale (Boardwalk Empire), Judy Greer (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes), Michael Pena (End of Watch), Abby Ryder Fortson (Togetherness »

Filming on 'Ant-Man' has Begun!

18 August 2014 1:04 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

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

That's right, filming on Ant-Man has officially begun! 

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:

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.

Greer, Slattery, T.I. Join Marvel's "Ant-Man"

18 August 2014 11:40 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Following on from director Peyton Reed's social media tweet this morning, Marvel Studios have issued an official press release announcing the start of production on "Ant-Man". There's a new synopsis, but the big news of the release is the supporting cast members.

One bit of news is that "Mad Men" star John Slattery is returning, likely reprising the role of Tony Stark's father Howard Stark which he played in "Iron Man 2". Also of note are the inclusion of "Archer" scene stealer Judy Greer, "Boardwalk Empire" actor Bobby Cannavale, rapper turned actor T.I., and young actress Abby Ryder Fortson who will likely play the young Cassie Lang (daughter of Paul Rudd's Scott Lang character).

Joining them in unspecified roles are the likes of David Dastmalchian ("The Dark Knight," "Prisoners"), Wood Harris ("Remember the Titans," "The Wire") and Gregg Turkington ("The Comedy," "On Cinema").

New synopsis and updated cast list for Marvel’s Ant-Man

18 August 2014 11:05 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A couple of hours ago director Peyton Reed took to Twitter to reveal that filming is underway on Ant-Man, and now Marvel Studios has officially announced the start of production with an updated synopsis and cast list which reveals several new additions, including John Slattery, who played the role of Howard Stark in Iron Man 2.

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. Against seemingly insurmountable obstacles, Pym and Lang must plan and pull off a heist that will save the world.

Set for release in the United States on July 17, 2015, the film is directed by Peyton Reed (“Bring it On,” “The Break-Up”) and stars Paul Rudd (“I Love You Man, »

'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, »

Naomie Harris And Beau Knapp Join Jake Gyllenhaal In Southpaw

11 August 2014 6:41 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Jake Gyllenhaal won’t be going into the ring alone for his upcoming boxing drama Southpaw, as last week, Naomie Harris and Beau Knapp both joined the Antoine Fuqua-directed film, which was penned by Sons of Anarchy writer creator Kurt Sutter.

Southpaw centers on a troubled fighter with dreams of becoming a welterweight champion, whose personal life crumbles even as his career soars. Harris will play Angela, a social worker who works with Gyllenhaal’s character and his daughter. With roles as Moneypenny in Skyfall and Winnie Mandela in Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom under her belt, Harris’ star is rising fast with no signs of slowing down. That Harris has boarded the project likely means that Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o, previously in talks for the same role, has dropped out of talks.

For his part, Knapp, who had a major role in The Signal earlier this year, »

Video of the Day: Roger Deakins and Coen Brothers supercut

5 August 2014 12:56 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Always the bridesmaid and never the bride, cinematographer Roger Deakins is one of the greatest working DPs today, having earned 11 Oscar nominations and never won. He’s like the Susan Lucci of the technical categories.

But he got that way because for years he’s been consistently collaborating with the Coen Brothers on some of their most iconic films, everything from Fargo to O Brother Where Art Thou, The Man Who Wasn’t There, True Grit, The Big Lebowski, Barton Fink and No Country for Old Men. The man is a master, most recently making sinister, wintery chills in last year’s Prisoners.

Thanks to Blag Films, you can now see a short supercut of some of Deakins’ finest shots among his collaboration with the Coens (with the unfortunate exception of The Ladykillers and The Hudsucker Proxy). While only limiting it to Coens films eliminates the chance to see some »

Lily James And Paul Dano Considering BBC’s War And Peace Miniseries

30 July 2014 7:21 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In one of its most ambitious undertakings to date, the BBC is teaming with The Weinstein Company and Look Out Point to bring viewers a sprawling, six-part miniseries adaptation of Leo Tolstoy’s classic tome War and Peace. Now, the pieces are falling into place for the series, with word that Lily James and Paul Dano are circling lead roles in the project.

Offers have been sent out to James, a rising star known best for her role as Lady Rose MacClare on the PBS period drama Downton Abbey, and Dano, who has been quietly building a reputation as a skilled character actor with parts in Little Miss SunshinePrisoners and 12 Years a Slave, among others. Though neither actor has been confirmed yet, James would take on the lead role of Natasha Rostova, who falls in love with Pierre Bezukhov, an awkward and illegitimate son of a wealthy Russian nobleman »

Lily James and Paul Dano in talks for BBC One's War and Peace series

30 July 2014 4:11 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Lily James and Paul Dano are in talks to appear in the BBC adaptation of War and Peace.

According to Deadline, Downton Abbey star James would play Natasha Rostova, a role previously taken by Audrey Hepburn in the 1956 film version of Leo Tolstoy's classic book.

She falls in love with Pierre Bezukhov, who Prisoners star Dano is in talks to play - an illegitimate son who rises in society.

Award-winning writer Andrew Davies - whose recent credits include Mr Selfridge and Little Dorrit - is set to pen the six-episode adaptation.

Davies previously said of the project: "[It is] not just a great novel, it's a wonderful read and it'll make a wonderful serial.

"A thrilling, funny and heartbreaking story of love, war and family life. The characters are so natural and human and easy to identify with, and Natasha Rostova just beats Lizzy Bennet as the most lovable heroine in literature. »

Chappie Finally Revealed on New Comic-Con Teaser and Banner

25 July 2014 | Horror Asylum | See recent Horror Asylum news »

'District 9' and 'Elysium' director Neill Blomkamp's latest robo-based venture into the realm of science fiction is being promoted at this weekend's San Diego Comic-Con. 'Chappie' is the story of an A.I. robot stolen by a couple of criminals intent of using him to help carry out their unlawful ways. Up to now we've had to imagine what dear old 'Chappie' looked like. I've had something between the robot from 'Robot and Frank' and Marvin the paranoid android from 'The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy' in my mind but this new teaser and banner spotted at Comic-Con reveals something quite different and dare I say it very Blomkamp-esque. The movie stars Hugh Jackman ('Prisoners'), Dev Patel ('Slumdog Millionaire'), Ninja and Yolandi Visser of rap-rave band Die Antwoord, Jose Pablo Cantillo, Brandon Auret and the voice of Sharlto Copley ('District 9'). »

First poster and trailer for Nightcrawler starring Jake Gyllenhaal

24 July 2014 12:39 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Fresh from the viral teaser that was released online over the last weekend, the first poster and teaser trailer for Nightcrawler, starring Jake Gyllenhaal (Enemy, Prisoners) have been released online, and we’ve got them right here…

Nightcrawler is the directorial debut of Dan Gilroy, the brother Tony Gilroy (The Bourne Legacy), who has been in amongst Hollywood for many years, most famously contributing to the abandoned Superman movie, Superman Lives, which was famously to star Nicholas Cage (Joe).

The movie is a thriller set in the underground world of crime reporting in Los Angeles. Below is also the official synopsis.

Nightcrawler is a pulse-pounding thriller set in the nocturnal underbelly of contemporary Los Angeles. Jake Gyllenhaal stars as Lou Bloom, a driven young man desperate for work who discovers the high-speed world of L.A. crime journalism.

‘Nightcrawler’ Trailer: Jake Gyllenhaal Explores the Dark Side of L.A.

23 July 2014 3:56 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Jake Gyllenhaal really seems to be spending a lot of time in the dark lately. The actor starred in two films in 2013, and neither of which could remotely be construed as “happy” stories. Prisoners explored the considerable moral perils involved with seeking revenge, while Enemy was a psycho-sexual examination of the age-old fear of losing one’s identity. Gyllenhaal must be enjoying the challenges these type of roles bring, as his next effort, Nightcrawler, takes him straight into the underbelly of what is simultaneously regarded as one of the most glamorous and one of the most dangerous cities in the world: Los Angeles.

Written and directed by Dan Gilroy (The Bourne Legacy), Nightcrawler is a crime thriller centering on one Lou Bloom, an extremely driven man looking for a career he can really sink his teeth into.

Nightcrawler Trailer: Jake Gyllenhaal In Sunglasses Lays On The Smooth Sleaze

23 July 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Dan Gilroy, brother of Tony, took over some of the writing duties on the Bourne franchise from his older sibling, who also directed the Jeremy Renner outing. Gilroy also penned Real Steel and Tarsem's The Fall. Here he makes his directorial debut with Nightcrawler, a film that foolishly escaped my gaze in yesterdays big Tiff announcement. As of this moment, the trailer certainly has my attention.  Jake Gyllenhaal, on fire after his one-two punch with Denis Villeneuve last year (Enemy, Prisoners) plays Lou Bloom, an ambitious, morally dubious crime reporter in Los Angeles who, judging from the images on display, will do anything to climb the ladder at the TV newsroom. In a brilliant pitch, the trailer is narrated as a perky job interview (to a fetching, as...
