Venom, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, Glass and Halloween are coming to Comic-Con

While the likes of Marvel Studios, Game of Thrones and Westworld are going to be absent from next month’s San Diego Comic-Con, there’s still going to be plenty of excitement for fans lucky enough to make it into Hall H this year.

Warner Bros. has already announced a big DC Films panel, with the first trailer for Aquaman confirmed, and footage from Shazam! and Wonder Woman 1984 rumoured, as well as the potential unveiling of a DC Extended Universe “rebranding”.

Now we can add a few more projects to that list, with Sony reportedly set to showcase two of its own Marvel projects in the live-action Venom spinoff starring Tom Hardy, along with the animated Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse movie.

Other projects which Sony is reportedly mulling over include Holmes and Watson, Searching, Alpha, Slender Man and Goosebumps: Haunted Halloween.

Meanwhile, Deadline is reporting that there will also be

Marvel’s Ant-Man and the Wasp running time revealed

With the North American release of Ant-Man and the Wasp fast approaching, Heroic Hollywood is reporting that the official running time for the Marvel sequel has been set at 118 minutes – one minute longer than the 2015 original.

Assuming this is accurate, Ant-Man and the Wasp will become the first sub-two hour Marvel release since 2016’s Doctor Strange, and the sixth shortest McU movie to date after The Incredible Hulk (112 minutes), Thor: The Dark World (112 minutes), Thor (114 minutes), Doctor Strange (115 minutes) and Ant-Man (117 minutes).

The Halloween Sequel Will Anchor Universal’s Sdcc Showcase

Aquaman, Shazam! and, er, Iron Fist season 2 – three of the geek-friendly properties we expect to lay eyes on during San Diego Comic-Con next month.

Although according to io9, there’s another IP that’s now booked its place on the official guest list – Halloween. Yes, Universal and Blumhouse’s long-in-development horror sequel will seemingly enjoy a big showcase at next month’s event, as the studio is expected to clear its slate and double down on Halloween – presumably at the expense of Mortal Engines, Glass and How to Train Your Dragon 3.

There’s still a good chance that either one (or all three!) of those films will be ushered into the spotlight, but after generating a metric ton of buzz with its incredible first teaser trailer, it’s fair to say that Halloween has earned its place at the tip-top of Universal’s calling card. Because after 40 long years – sequels

Paul Rudd reveals who he believes is a better hero between Ant-Man and the Wasp

Paul Rudd has given his opinion on whether Wasp or Ant-Man is a better hero.

Superhero partnerships are always an interesting dynamic, with their differing abilities, personalities, and egos providing certain challenges and obstacles to overcome in order to save the day.

We will get to see how Paul Rudd’s Ant-Man and Evangeline Lilly’s Wasp fair in the upcoming Ant-Man and the Wasp but who is actually the better superhero?

Well, according to Paul Rudd, it’s probably not Ant-Man. Speaking to ComicBook.com, the actor said: “I feel like she’s born into it and made for it more than I am,” Rudd explained. “She has the focus and the drive and I think the desire to do it maybe more than me, at least at first.”

Putting to one side who’s the better hero, are the two actually a good team? Speaking about how the

Evangeline Lilly says Ant-Man and the Wasp is “a cross between Moonlighting and Batman and Robin”

With Marvel’s Ant-Man and the Wasp less than three weeks away, Evangline Lilly has been chatting to the Toronto Sun about the sequel, describing it as “a cross between Moonlighting and Batman and Robin.”

Fortunately, she’s referring to the Dynamic Duo themselves, rather than Joel Schumacher’s 1997 travesty Batman & Robin!

“Initially, people were so excited that it was the first female titled character in a Marvel movie,” said Lilly, who reprises her Ant-Man role as Hope Van Dyne. “I was honoured to do that, but I also felt like maybe it should have been Scarlett Johansson because she’s earned it. But the thing I’m really the most excited about now is that it’s a duo. I just think that there’s a cross between Moonlighting and Batman and Robin. Everyone liked watching Batman and Robin fighting together because that dynamic is more interesting than one person fighting alone.

Jamie Lee Curtis Says She’s The New Loomis In Halloween

Blumhouse’s upcoming Halloween rebootquel sees Jamie Lee Curtis return to the franchise as protagonist Laurie Strode for the first time in 16 years. As fans are well aware by now, the new movie will cast aside every single sequel released thus far and follow on from John Carpenter’s 1978 original alone, picking up 40 years after Michael Myers first attacked Haddonfield, Illinois, with Laurie ready and waiting for him.

With that in mind, Curtis believes that her character is now filling the role cultivated by Dr. Loomis in the first movie. In the original, Donald Pleasance played Loomis, Myers’ psychiatrist who realizes how dangerous he is and desperately searches to find and stop him when his patient escapes on Halloween night. Pleasance went on to reprise the part for four more films and up until Curtis’ return here, he was the most prolific star of the series.

Jamie Lee Curtis Explains How Laurie Strode is Like Dr. Loomis in The New Halloween Film

After that first trailer for Halloween was released, the excitement for David Gordon Green and Danny McBride's film shot up. For the most part, fans liked what they saw and they want to see more.

As you already know, the movie is a direct sequel to the original 1978 film, and as you might expect, after 40 years, Dr. Loomis will not be around. He was previously played by Donald Pleasence and there's no doubt his presence will be felt in the film. There was a quick shot of a court drawing of him in the trailer. Pleasence's last appearance as the character was in the sixth film, Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers.

There is also going to be another character that will be taking up a similar mantle as Dr. Loomis and that character is Laurie Strode. Jamie Lee Curtis recently talked about how she will be like Dr.

Evangeline Lilly is “pissed off” about Ant-Man and the Wasp’s UK release date

Here in the UK we’ve become accustomed to getting Marvel movies one or two weeks earlier than our friends across the Pond, but that isn’t going to be the case this summer with the studio’s latest superhero blockbuster Ant-Man and the Wasp.

While the sequel is set to open in North America on July 6th, the UK has to wait almost an entire month, with Disney and Marvel opting to open the film on August 3rd owing to this summer’s World Cup (which has its final on July 15th). As you’d expect, UK fans are disappointed by the decision, and so too are stars Evangeline Lilly and Paul Rudd.

“They always do that,” Lilly told Empire (via Cbm). “Then what happens is people just pirate the movie and they see it in the worst way possible, like some shitty version online, instead of going to a theater.

Danny McBride wanted to shoot two Halloween movies back-to-back

Michael Myers returns to Haddonfield this October some forty years after his original killing spree to face Jamie Lee Curtis’ Laurie Strode for a final time in the new Halloween movie from director David Gordon Green and co-writer Danny McBride.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly following the release of the first trailer, McBride has revealed that the original plan was to shoot two movies back-to-back, and the prospect of a sequel remains on the table should this movie go down well with audiences.

“We were going to shoot two of them back-to-back… Then we were like, Well, let’s not get ahead of ourselves. This could come out, and everyone could hate us, and we’d never work again. So, let’s not have to sit around for a year while we wait for another movie to come out that we know people aren’t going to like. So,

Halloween Star Explains How The Film Will Handle An Aged Michael Myers

40 years have passed since Michael Myers first terrorized Jamie Lee Curtis’ Laurie Strode in the original iconic slasher flick, Halloween. But now that he’s coming home again, how will the age’ing 60-something-year-old be able to stalk his prey without having to have a little sit down in the process?

Easy. Actor and stuntman Nick Castle, the man mountain who portrayed the original Myers, has since returned to the role to bring a sense of authenticity and connection to the original, though he’ll still share the part with fellow actor and stuntman, James Jude Courtney.

Somewhat wisely ignoring all but the first film in the franchise, the sequel finds Michael incarcerated in a mental institution for the crimes he committed long ago on that fateful night. But, perhaps unsurprisingly, he breaks out with only one thing one his mind: revenge.

Instead of being a decrepit old man though as you’d expect,

Marvel’s Ant-Man and the Wasp tracking $80 million domestic opening weekend

Here in the UK we’ve still got the best part of two months to wait, but Marvel Studios is set to unleash its third superhero movie of the year in the States in just three weeks, and it looks like Ant-Man and the Wasp is going to deliver another solid hit for the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

According to THR, the sequel – which reunites director Peyton Reed with stars Paul Rudd (Scott Lang/Ant-Man) and Evangeline Lilly (Hope Van Dyne/The Wasp) – is tracking a domestic opening weekend of between $70 and $80 million.

This is of course well below the $200 million plus debuts of Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War, but it’s still a solid opening for the sequel and, assuming it reaches those numbers, it would put it well ahead of the $57.2 million opening weekend of 2015’s Ant-Man, which went on to gross $519.3 million worldwide.

Judy Greer Says Halloween’s A Multi-Generational, Female Empowered Movie

There’s a moment in the Halloween trailer, not long after we visit Michael Myers in Haddonfield’s maximum security mental asylum, when Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) admits that, for 40 years, she’s been praying for him to escape.

Why, you ask? So she can kill him, and bring an end to his reign of terror that began with John Carpenter’s original classic back in 1978. But whereas the first Halloween left Michael’s fate on a cliffhanger, David Gordon Green and co-writer Danny McBride have dreamed up a retcon of their own so that The Shape winds up in police custody after killing three innocent teenagers on Halloween night four decades ago. And that’s where Blumhouse’s sequel begins.

But of course, it won’t only be Michael that Laurie needs to contend with, as the film will also see a tense relationship between Curtis’ character and her daughter,

Michael Myers's Gruesome Reign of Terror Continues in the Horrifying Halloween Trailer

Are you ready to have the scariest October in recent memory? Because Halloween is coming. A few days after Blumhouse and Universal shared a very brief teaser trailer for the David Gordon Green-directed reboot, the full (and absolutely horrifying) trailer dropped, and it's safe to say we'll be having nightmares for Weeks.

The updated take on the terrifying story sees Jamie Lee Curtis reprising her role as Laurie Strode from the 1978 original. Now older (but perhaps not altogether wiser), Laurie has spent years praying that her attempted murderer, Michael Myers, would escape from his psychiatric ward so that she can get revenge for the trauma he put her through by killing him herself. Well, thanks to a bus crash, she gets her wish, and the unstoppable homicidal maniac is let loose on the world once again.

The script, cowritten by Danny McBride and Jeff Fradley, also introduces new characters,

Jamie Lee Curtis on how Laurie Strode has been preparing for the return of Michael Myers

Last week we got our first look at the new Halloween film, which is set to deliver a direct sequel to the 1978 classic, ignoring subsequent instalments, as Jamie Lee Curtis’ Laurie Strode finds herself face to face with Michael Myers once again some 40 years after those fateful events in Haddonfield, Illinois.

During an interview with Dread Central, Curtis has been discussing what Laurie Strode has been up to these past forty years, as she prepares herself and her family for the night he came home… again.

“I think for Laurie Strode, society has not been kind to her,” said Curtis. “She lives alone, she has tried to live in society but society has not been welcoming. There were not a lot of mental health professionals helping this young woman, she banged her way into her life, she slammed into people, institutions, law enforcement, and they hate her because she calls the police every day,

Ant-Man and the Wasp Projected for $75 Million Box Office Debut

In just under a month, Marvel will release its third and final movie of the year, Ant-Man and the Wasp, and today we have the first box office tracking data, indicating a much more modest result than Black Panther or Avengers: Infinity War. Early tracking data suggests that Ant-Man and the Wasp will pull in $75 million in its opening weekend, a solid jump over the $57.2 million earned by 2015's Ant-Man in its debut. Ant-Man and the Wasp won't have too much competition either, with only Universal's The First Purge opening on July 4, two days ahead of its July 6 opening.

While this debut would certainly be a welcomed one for Marvel, it still pales in comparison to the massive numbers put up by Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War. Regardless, no one was expecting Ant-Man and the Wasp to break the bank at the box office, but it may also do better than expected,

‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’ on Track for ‘Avengers’-Boosted $75 Million Box Office Debut

‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’ on Track for ‘Avengers’-Boosted $75 Million Box Office Debut
With their fans still buzzing about the ending of “Avengers: Infinity War,” Marvel Studios is looking to cap off a wildly successful 2018 with “Ant-Man and the Wasp,” the sequel to a film that was one of the studio’s lowest-grossing releases. But box office trackers are expecting an improvement with a $75 million opening, roughly 30 percent higher than the $57 million made by the first “Ant-Man” in 2015.

While this result would make “Wasp” the first Marvel Studios release since “Doctor Strange” to post an opening below $100 million, the film still has the chance to post a higher figure, especially if Marvel fans get word that it contains clues to how Ant-Man will factor into next year’s “Avengers 4.”
