Its been almost four years since New Line Cinema announced they would be developing a big budget movie based on the Midway classic video game Rampage, but it seems like the film is finally ready for cameras.

Peyton Reed Ant-Man interview

A couple weeks ago I got a chance to sit down with director Peyton Reed and talk about his new film Ant-Man. I’ve been a fan of Reed for a while now, from his fun 2000 comedy Bring It On (which was basically Pitch Perfect with Cheerleading) to his work within the Back to the Future franchise (he was involved in the Universal Studios ride, the animated series, and even directed the behind the scenes documentaries for the sequels). Here are some of the things I talked to Peyton Reed about:

  • His first attempt trying to direct a Marvel film in 2003 with a Fantastic Four adaptation that never happened
  • Ant-Man looks like it has the most VFX shots out of any of the Marvel films, But it does’t
  • How they made the microscopic scenes so photorealistic
  • What he believes he brought to the movie that wasn’t in Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish‘s draft
  • Why other Marvel characters were added to the story (possible spoiler warning, although its shown in tv commercials and trailers)
  • How Peyton ended up doing voice work on episodes of Beavis and Butthead
  • Will he be involved in any of the Back to the Future 30th Anniversary festivities
  • How Did Marty McFly influence Ant-Man

You can read about all of that and much more in my Peyton Reed Ant-Man interview, after the jump.

Batman v Superman trailer

At San Diego Comic Con International 2015, Zack Snyder revealed a second full-length trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. As you probably know, Zack Snyder has a long history with Comic Con, and has always brought the goods to the convention.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has been on the stage in San Diego for three years now: In 2013, Snyder invited Harry Lennix on stage to read a passage from the story which inspired Snyder’s next Superman film. The passage was from Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns and elicited one of loudest crowd reactions in Hall H history. Last year Snyder returned with a reveal of Wonder Woman and a brief clip of Batman in his armored suit looking up in the rain at Superman floating above him which captured the buzz of last year’s convention.

Both of those were included on my list of the greatest moments in Comic Con history. So did Snyder top the two previous appearances on the Hall H stage? Watch the new Comic Con Batman v Superman trailer after the jump, and check out a new poster as well.

JK Simmons Terminator Genisys sequel?

Terminator Genisys is now in theaters, which means I can now share with you an interview I conducted with JK Simmons last week while covering the Genisys premiere in Berlin. I’m posting this after the release because Simmons’ character O’Brien is a second-half reveal, and so I don’t have to dance around that fact I talked to him about the film in full-on spoiler mode. (So you may not want to watch the video until you’ve seen the film.)

In addition to talking to Simmons about his role in this film, I also chatted with the Whiplash star about possible future Terminator sequels. Does his character survive Terminator Genisys? Could he appear in the planned sequels? Is he signed on for Terminator 6 and Terminator 7? If they were to make more sequels, how would his character fit into the future plans? Find out all this and more, after the jump.

The Walk IMAX release date

Sony is releasing Robert ZemeckisThe Walk early on September 20th 2015 in select IMAX theaters, a couple weeks before the film’s scheduled October 9th 2015 release date. I’ve seen the trailer for this film in IMAX 3D and this definitely seems like one of those rare films that has been envisioned for not only 3D but also IMAX. So releasing the film in IMAX a couple weeks early makes sense.
