Randall Park - Ant-Man and the Wasp Cast

Though production on Ant-Man and the Wasp is slated to begin soon, we don’t know much about the sequel so far. Paul Rudd is returning as the Ant-Man himself, Scott Lang, and he’ll be joined by Evangeline Lilly suited up as The Wasp on the big screen for the first time. Plus, Michael Douglas is returning as The Wasp’s father, former Ant-Man and scientist Hank Pym, and Michael Peña is returning as Scott’s criminal buddy Luis. Now a new cast member has entered the mix, and the character he’s playing raises some questions.

Randall Park, who can currently be seen on the ABC sitcom Fresh Off the Boat, has been cast as SHIELD agent Jimmy Woo, a character who has been part of Marvel Comics since the 1950s, getting involved with various superheroes and villains over the years. But wasn’t SHIELD completely disbanded after Captain America: The Winter Soldier? Read More »

Edgar Wright Won't Watch Ant-Man

Even though Ant-Man turned out to be pretty good when it arrived in theaters back in 2015, there was a time when the project was a point of concern at Marvel Studios. After developing and writing the project for eight years, writer/director Edgar Wright departed the film over creative differences. Recently, the filmmaker said diplomatically to Variety, “I wanted to make a Marvel movie but I don’t think they really wanted to make an Edgar Wright movie.”

In a new interview, Edgar Wright was asked if he took the time to see how Ant-Man turned out after he left and it was handed it off to director Peyton Reed. The answer is no, and Wright can’t even bring himself to watch the trailer. Read More »

Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later Trailer

Netflix brought back Wet Hot American Summer for a series revival back in 2015 after development of a sequel to the 2001 Sundance comedy hit was happening for years. Instead of making good upon the promise of a 10-year reunion teased at the end of the movie, the series went back to the first day at Camp Firewood, which was all the more ridiculous simply because it had a cast of actors and actress in their 30s and 40s playing teenagers. But now the reunion we’ve all been waiting for is finally coming.

Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later is a new eight episode continuation of the goofy camp comedy that brings back (almost) all of the original cast members again as we flash forward to their lives in 1991. It looks just as insane as the prequel series was, and it even has some new cast members joining the fun.

Dinner with Don Trailer - Don Rickles

Sad news came yesterday when we heard that legendary comedian Don Rickles had passed away. In recent years, Rickles had become known as the voice of Mr. Potato Head in pretty much every piece of Toy Story multimedia. But his true legacy lies in stand-up comedy as one of the most gifted insult comics to ever take the stage. Rickles was so good that audiences were never really sure if he was only joking, often turned off by his brash sense of humor, which kept him from becoming a huge star of film and TV.

Don Rickles once had a short-lived NBC program that only lasted a season, but that didn’t stop AARP Studios from giving him his own show called Dinner with Don, where he sat down for a meal with some of today’s biggest names in film and television. In honor of the late comedian, AARP wanted to showcase the charm and endless wit of Don Rickles by teasing the TV series.

mute first look

We first heard about Duncan JonesMute back in 2009, shortly after he had finished blowing us all away with his stunning science fiction debut, Moon. Since then, Jones has helmed two other movies, the very good Source Code and the noble misfire Warcraft, but his Berlin-set sci-fi noir has always hovered in the margins of every news post. When was he finally going to get around to making this one?

Then things started to come together. Alexander Skarsgård, Paul Rudd, and Justin Theroux joined the film. Moon composer Clint Mansell hopped on board. And then shooting started, with Netflix signing on to release the film straight to their streaming service at some point in 2017. Now, the first images from the film have arrived as the final piece of evidence: yes, Mute is actually happening. Finally and for real.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

Andrew Kevin Walker interview

Tonight, for one night only, Nerdland is playing in theaters across the United States courtesy of Fathom Events. The wacky, wild, and bizarrely sweet animated film tells the story of two 30-year-old friends, John (Paul Rudd) and Elliot (Patton Oswalt), on the hunt for infamy. Sick of waiting around for fame to drop on their laps, the actor who doesn’t act and the screenwriter who barely writes decide to do whatever necessary to grab headlines.

Director Chris Prynoski‘s (Metalocapylpse) buddy picture sprang from the mind of screenwriter Andrew Kevin Walker many years ago. Walker, best known for Se7en, spent plenty of time and money trying to make Nerdland. It was originally planned as a live-action film that David Fincher was going to direct, but after years of hearing “no,” Walker’s story finally got told as an R-rated animated feature, thanks to the fine people at Titmouse Inc., the animation production company behind The Venture Bros., Superjail!, and Metalocalypse.

Walker recently spoke with us about his love letter to Los Angeles, the Jonah Hill draft of Nerdland, working with David Fincher, and far more. Below, read our Andrew Kevin Walker interview.

nerdland trailer

Nerdland comes from the mind of Andrew Kevin Walker, the writer behind Se7en, Wong Kar-wai’s killer BMW short film “The Follow,” and a supposedly great script that Joel Schumacher butchered and rewrote into 8mm. Not since the 2010 remake of The Wolfman has Walker had a feature film credit, but we’ll soon see an original, R-rated animated movie with his name on it.

Director Duncan Jones Starts Shooting ‘Mute’ Next Week

mute filming

Mute has been a longtime passion project for Duncan Jones. The director wanted to make the Berlin-set sci-fi film, which he co-wrote with Michael Robert Johnson, his directorial debut, but it got put on hold for Moon. Still struggling to get Mute financed, Jones then made Source Code his sophomore effort. Then he went on to direct Warcraft. But before his video game adaptation opened in theaters, it was announced Alexander Skarsgård and Paul Rudd would star in Mute. The two actors will enter Berlin circa 2046 soon because Duncan Jones’ film finally begins shooting next week.

Sausage Party Trailer

Let’s get this out of the way right now. If you’re already on board for the raunchy, R-rated animated comedy Sausage Party from Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg, then you probably shouldn’t watch the new red band trailer that was just released. However, if you’re the kind of person that likes to watch all the trailers, then we can’t stop you from watching this latest tease that reveals much more about what happens after Frank the hot dog (voiced by Seth Rogen) learns what happens to food after it goes to the “great beyond” outside of the grocery store.

Fundamentals of Caring Review

Note: With The Fundamentals of Caring out this weekend, we’re re-running our review from the Sundance Film Festival.

Often times at Sundance you see the same stories played out with different characters. This year alone, for example, there are two movies about an estranged New York man returning home when his mother comes down with a debilitating ailment. Familiar indie stories don’t always work on the festival circuit, but sometimes when the right cast comes together, a decent amount of magic happens. Such is the case with The Fundamentals of Caring, a road trip comedy with heart based on Jonathan Evison‘s bestselling novel of nearly the same name and starring British sensation Craig Roberts (Submarine) and the always reliable Paul Rudd.
