‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’ reviews: How does Marvel’s 20th film compare to the 19 that came before?

‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’ reviews: How does Marvel’s 20th film compare to the 19 that came before?
The Marvel Cinematic Universe has officially turned 20 … and it only took 10 years. “Ant-Man and the Wasp,” whose title heroes can shrink to the size of a bug, opens on July 6, and though it doesn’t necessarily represent an epochal moment in the overarching Marvel story, it’s nevertheless a milestone. There aren’t many film franchises that reach their 20th title, and fewer where the vast majority of them earned positive reviews. But how does the McU’s 20th film compare to the last 19?

The reviews are mostly positive thus far. As of this writing “Ant-Man and the Wasp” has a MetaCritic score of 69 based on the input of 41 critics. And on Rotten Tomatoes the film is rated 87% fresh with 126 reviews counted. The Rt consensus says it’s “A lighter, brighter superhero movie powered by the effortless charisma of Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly.”

This “Ant-Man” sequel has even scored better than its 2015 predecessor,

Film Review: ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’

Film Review: ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’
Ant-Man and the Wasp” has a pleasingly breakneck, now-you-see-it-now-you-don’t surreal glee. It’s a cunningly swift and delightful comedy of scale, in which Scott Lang (Paul Rudd), that quipster mensch of a convict-turned-superhero (has there ever been a movie criminal this nice?), shoots around in his miniaturizing metal suit like the world’s tiniest gadfly, only to loom up as large as Godzilla. Either way, he always has time to deliver a line like “Do you really just put the word quantum ahead of everything?” The answer is: Yes. “Ant-Man and the Wasp” is a fantasy of mutating matter in which buildings collapse into Monopoly toys, a Hello Kitty Pez dispenser gets inflated into a freeway battering ram, and the most fearless of the characters is injected into an ocean of psychedelic sub-atomic protoplasm.

Ant-Man And The Wasp Director Wants To Make A Fantastic Four Movie In The McU

When it comes to bringing Marvel’s First Family to the big screen, the Fantastic Four have had a troubled history to say the least, but could Ant-Man helmsman Peyton Reed be the man to set things right?

Back when the filmmaker was known mainly as the guy who directed Bring It On, Reed was attached to get behind the camera for the 2005 take on the superhero team. Though things obviously didn’t work out as planned – with Tim Story eventually taking over the project – Reed’s maintained an interest in the characters ever since, even offering his own theory on why Josh Trank’s 2015 Fantastic Four missed the mark so badly.

Now, with a Disney-Fox merger on the cards, the director may be able to give the property another try. When asked about the possibility at the Ant-Man and the Wasp press day, Reed offered up a

‘Breaking In’ Signals the Rise of Gabrielle Union as a Box Office Star

‘Breaking In’ Signals the Rise of Gabrielle Union as a Box Office Star
While “Avengers: Infinity War” left box office beancounters’ jaws on the floor with its huge Chinese launch last weekend, Gabrielle Union was quietly making her first steps on her path to becoming the next big box office star with her latest film, “Breaking In.”

Made on a thrifty $6 million budget, “Breaking In” stars Union as a mother forced to break out the shotguns after thieves invade her late father’s mansion and hold her children hostage in an attempt to access the house’s vault.

Though critics panned it, the film made $17.5 million from 2,537 screens this past weekend. By comparison, this past weekend’s other new release, Melissa McCarthy’s “Life of the Party,” needed over 1,100 more screens to open to $17.8 million, giving “Breaking In” the higher per screen average at just under $7,000 per screen.

Kirsten Dunst Gives Birth, Welcomes First Child With Jesse Plemons
Kirsten Dunst is a mom! The Bring It On actress has given birth to a baby boy, a source confirms to E! News. This is the first child for the actress and her fiancé Jesse Plemons.

The actress' pregnancy confirmation came exactly a year after her romance with Plemons was revealed. E! News confirmed back in January 2017 that the former Fargo co-stars were engaged.

Eliza Dushku’s 15-Year Journey To Make ‘Mapplethorpe’ – Tribeca Studio

  • Deadline
Eliza Dushku’s 15-Year Journey To Make ‘Mapplethorpe’ – Tribeca Studio
For the last 15 years, Bring It On and Dollhouse actress Eliza Dushku and her brother Nate Dushku have been trying to mount a biopic about controversial photographer Robert Mapplethorpe.

“It’s not the easiest thing to get an art film financed, we’re not a Marvel comic,” she told Deadline at our Tribeca studio.

In 2002, Eliza and Nate were introduced to the original script for Mapplethorpe by writer, Bruce Goodrich. In 2006, Goodrich optioned his screenplay to documentary filmmaker Ondi Timoner. The parties approached the Mapplethorpe Foundation in 2008 seeking backing and support for a film. A match was made marrying director Timoner and the Dushku siblings who funded the option from the Foundation for the right to tell the artist’s life story and reproduce his artwork for the film. In 2009, scribe Mikko Alanne joined the project to work on the script.

After her doc We Live in Public, Timoner was

Ant-Man Is Marvel's Fun Little Success Story: Journey to Infinity War Part 12

Ant-Man Is Marvel's Fun Little Success Story: Journey to Infinity War Part 12
Ant-Man is a strange movie in so many ways. It had a long, bizarre and complicated road to getting made and, beyond that, the fact that this particular Marvel character ever became the subject of a live-action movie in the first place speaks volumes about the trust people have in Marvel Studios. Even by modern comic book movie standards, Ant-Man is a bizarre and kind of goofy character. But even if it isn't the most miraculously fantastic and bombastically successful Marvel Cinematic Universe movie ever, it's still an interesting and mostly fun success story within the McU.

In this series, we've been looking back at all of the McU movies leading up to Infinity War, which is just around the corner. So far, we've looked at all of the groundbreaking flicks in Phase 1, which concluded with The Avengers. That paved the way for the uneven Phase 2, which contains some of Marvel's unquestioned best,

The 7 Best Movies New to Netflix in January 2018

Does a new year mean a new Netflix? Probably not, as their slate for the first month of 2018 is still troublingly light on movies that would be old enough to have their own Netflix accounts. Nevertheless, the streaming giant has plugged a few of the biggest gaps in their library of classic films, adding “The Godfather” trilogy, “Breakfast at Tiffany’s,” and the entire “Bring it On” series in one fell swoop.

Here are the seven best films to stream on Netflix in January 2018 (and click here for a list of everything that’s been added to the service this month).

7. “Definitely, Maybe” (2008)

Remember romantic comedies? They were nice. Sure, many of them were patently insane, and almost all of them reinforced some pernicious gender norms, but they could also be sweet and sincere reminders that we’re all just out there looking for love. “Definitely, Maybe” is one of the genre’s better examples,
