It’s always interesting to see what the Honest Trailer for a good movie chooses to poke fun at, and in the case of Marvel Studios isolated superhero heist movie Ant-Man, that’s exactly what we get to see. As the Ant-Man Honest Trailer points out, against all odds, this movie actually kinda works. But that doesn’t change the fact that it’s basically the exact same plot of Iron Man, but just with a different kind of suit. Read More »

This year audiences embraced a hero named Ant-Man. I imagine some folks at Marvel were worried if moviegoers would accept a miniature crime fighter with such a refreshingly uncool name — and the bizarre power of commanding ants — but the film was a critical and commercial hit, especially overseas. After the success of the movie, director Peyton Reed can take even more chances with the Ant-Man sequel, and he plans on doing just that.
After the jump, learn what Reed has in store for Ant-Man and the Wasp.

Marvel Studios superhero heist film Ant-Man will hit home video on December 8th, and it should make for a good Christmas gift for the Marvel fan in your life. But if you can’t wait until then, a couple key scenes from the movie have been officially released online for you to watch over and over again.

Marvel was smart enough to bring director Peyton Reed back for the sequel to Ant-Man, Ant-Man and the Wasp. Reed was in an awkward spot, taking over the first Ant-Man after all the negative buzz following Edgar Wright‘s departure, but he came in and knocked the Marvel film out of the park. A lot of people deserve credit for how well Ant-Man turned out, including Adam McKay, who collaborated on the script with actor Paul Rudd. McKay brought a lot of ideas to the table that really paid off.
As for whether he’ll return for the sequel, McKay sounds open to it. Read what he had to say after the jump.

Director Duncan Jones has been talking about this science fiction film noir dream project Mute for years. Like so many passion projects, it always seemed to be just out of reach for the Moon and Source Code filmmaker, who has spent the past few years bringing Warcraft to life. With his big-budget fantasy epic nearing the homestretch, Jones can actually make Mute happen instead of just wistfully talking about it to anyone who will listen. After all, we’ve been using the same piece of concept art for every story about this movie for over five years. We need something new!
And now, we’re getting something new. Alexander Skarsgard and Paul Rudd have joined the cast, which is the first proper, actual evidence we’ve had in years that this movie could become a reality. More importantly, Jones has all but confirmed what he’s long teased: Mute will take place in the same universe as Moon.

It’s not surprising people like Ant-Man. It’s a funny, cool, and clever superhero pic that relies more on the conventions of a heist movie than a superhero movie. Director Peyton Reed (Down with Love) also made a Marvel movie that doesn’t feature a massive third act with extras running around and the hero fighting a bunch of CG, faceless bots. For a variety of reasons, Ant-Man is a breath of fresh air, so it isn’t surprising when somebody likes the film. But it is surprising when that somebody is director Terry Gilliam (12 Monkeys, Time Bandits).
Gilliam discusses Ant-Man after the jump.

David Gordon Green‘s career really isn’t that odd. He began his journey as an indie darling, directing intimate dramas with a slightly off-kilter tone. When Pineapple Express came out in 2008, his career took a turn, not a detour. But the director’s two major studio comedies that followed the success of his stoner action-comedy divided his fans. With perhaps one exception, whatever the final result, at least he’s always experimenting behind-the-camera.
After the jump, check out a ranking of David Gordon Green’s films.

Marvel Studios had some trouble hanging on to an Ant-Man director the first time around, as you probably recall, but it’s having no such issues now. Peyton Reed, who took over the first Ant-Man when Edgar Wright departed, is reportedly in talks to return for the recently announced sequel Ant-Man and the Wasp. More about the Peyton Reed Ant-Man and the Wasp news after the jump. Read More »
Just last week, Marvel Studios officially announced a sequel to this past summer’s Phase Two title Ant-Man. The follow-up will be called Ant-Man and The Wasp, following up the Ant-Man credits teaser revealing Hope Van Dyne (daughter of Hank Pym, played by Evangeline Lilly) would get her own superhero suit to join Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) on his Ant-Man adventures.
But if for some reason you weren’t satisfied with the more isolated, low-key superhero flick, you might find some playful jabs at the movie from the folks at How It Should Have Ended to be right up your alley. They point out some amusing details and shortcomings that the film kind of glosses over, but if you get lost in the film and ignore those elements, then it’s all good, right? Read More »
