Peyton Reed spoiler interview

From Ant-Man to Bring It On to his crowning achievement, Down With Love, there’s a sincere buoyancy to director Peyton Reed‘s work. His deft control of tone is currently on display in Ant-Man and the Wasp, which brings good-hearted laughs to the Marvel Cinematic Universe after Infinity War‘s downer ending. While Reed made Scott Lang’s (Paul Rudd) origin story a heist movie, the sequel is a comedy focused more on banter and character than action – though the action is bigger this time around.

Before making the latest entry in the MCU, Reed watched “the holy trinity of romantic comedies”: Philadelphia Story, His Girl Friday, and It Happened One Night. “The male and female characters are so smart, and there’s this mutual respect between those characters, particularly in His Girl Friday, they respect each other in terms of what they do,” he told us. Reed, who’s also fond of those movies’ “incredible humanism,” also discussed returning to the Quantum Realm, mini Paul Rudd, the end credits tags, the influence of Elmore Leonard, and more. Read our full Peyton Reed spoiler interview below.

Ant-Man and the Wasp Box Office

It should come as no surprise that Ant-Man and the Wasp topped the box office this weekend, and that it’s another sequel that has surpassed its predecessor in the opening weekend.

Ant-Man and the Wasp raked in $76 million at the domestic box office, coming in under the projections that had it making more than Doctor Strange‘s opening weekend of $85 million. It’s also the lowest opening for a Marvel Studios sequel, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing since the original opened to $57.2 million back in 2015.  Read More »

ant-man and the wasp box office tracking

Compared to the previous Marvel film to hit theaters, the Ant-Man and the Wasp box office tracking looks like it has gone through a shrink ray. But the new projections for the Marvel Studios sequel aren’t small potatoes. Ant-Man and the Wasp is eyeing an $80 million opening weekend haul, which is peanuts compared to the behemoth that is Avengers: Infinity War. But it is still significantly higher than the box office debut of the first Ant-Man.

ant-man and the wasp featurette

One of the best and most visually entertaining sequences of Ant-Man was the miniature fight scene that started in Scott Lang’s (Paul Rudd) daughter’s toy set and evolved into a street fight featuring a giant Thomas the Tank Engine. Now Ant-Man and the Wasp will do you one even better: all that, but in a car chase.

The latest Ant-Man and the Wasp featurette promises us a car chase like we’ve never seen before. No, the explosions aren’t bigger and the cars aren’t nastier, but there is a whole lot of shrinking and growing involved.
