All those production delays meant Ant-Man didn’t go in front of cameras early enough for Marvel to show us Paul Rudd or Michael Douglas in action at Comic-Con. But it wouldn’t be like Marvel to show up to Hall H completely empty-handed, and so they “filmed a little something to show you guys,” as Kevin Feige put it.
We were treated to a brief bit of Ant-Man footage, really an FX test with voiceover. Hit the jump to get our Ant-Man footage recap and reaction.

The recent casting of Michael Douglas in Edgar Wright‘s Ant-Man came as a big surprise for a couple reasons. One was that, up until Douglas was announced, there had been no confirmation that the film would feature two different Ant-Men. Another was that, well, this is Douglas we’re talking about. Comic book movies haven’t really been his thing, historically speaking.
But based on Douglas’ latest comments, it sounds like the shock factor was what attracted him to the role in the first place. “Sometimes — like (when) they didn’t see you for Liberace — you’ve got to shake them up a little bit and have some fun,” he said. Hit the jump to find out some of the other reasons he decided to sign on.

Word has just hit that Michael Douglas, fresh from his Golden Globe win for Behind the Candelabra, will be in Edgar Wright‘s Ant-Man. He’ll be the first Ant-Man, Henry “Hank” Pym. That pegs Paul Rudd as Scott Lang, who becomes Ant-Man after stealing Pym’s tech.
Marvel confirms those details. (Variety, in a story that has since been changed, said Douglas is the villain in the film, without naming his character. That’s an interesting clash of info, but likely just an error on the trade’s part.)
We have more details below. Read More »

What do you do when you manage to get four iconic Academy Award winners (Michael Douglas, Robert De Niro, Morgan Freeman, and Kevin Kline) together at the same time? If you’re director Jon Turtletaub, you get them to recreate The Hangover for the senior citizen set.
To clarify, Last Vegas isn’t actually a Hangover remake or sequel, it just kinda looks like one. The quartet play a group of lifelong friends who descend upon Las Vegas for a booze-fueled bacchanal when one of their number (Douglas) finally decides to tie the knot. Watch the first full-length trailer after the jump.

The Hangover films have been gigantic successes, but they might be a little more raunchy than some audiences want. For your family members who maybe want to stick to movies like Meet the Parents, here’s Last Vegas. The movie is set in Vegas, with Michael Douglas, Robert De Niro, Morgan Freeman and Kevin Kline as four life-long friends who trek to the city for a bachelor party.
National Treasure captain Jon Turtletaub directs, and the first teaser makes it look as lightweight as the concept sounds. Sure, there’s something to be said for watching a couple of these actors break out of their usual patterns. It’s cute to watch Morgan Freeman play a guy who gets wasted on vodka/Red Bull, for example, and I won’t begrudge Michael Douglas having fun on screen at this point in his life and career. Whether that will make you want to watch the actual film is another question.
