The Little Prince Trailer


A Little Girl's Mother has high expectations of her daughter, given her own career success, and thus takes it upon herself to plan out her entire life, complete with a rigorous study and exercise schedule. The Little Girl agrees to knuckle down at first, but soon finds herself distracted by her peculiar elderly neighbour, The Aviator, who wishes to tell her the story of his encounter with The Little Prince - an other worldly being who lived on an astronaut before landing in the middle of a desert on Earth. The Little Girl is fascinated by the tale, and starts to understand what the most important things are in life, such as friendship. She starts to lament the idea of growing up and the idea of forgetting the significant things she understands as a child; that only the heart can give her a true vision in life.

Ant-Man Trailer


When you need someone to break into a place and steal something, a career cat burglar is your best bet. Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) is in jail, which isn't the best start, but when Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) needs a thief, Lang is still his man. Pym was once a miniature superhero known as Ant-Man, yet when Darren Cross (Corey Stoll) takes over his company and tries to mass-market the powerful Ant-Man suits, Pym hires Lang to break in and steal the suit back. From there, he must become the Ant-Man - no matter how much he hates the name.

Marvel Releases 'Ant-Man' Teaser! [Trailer + Pictures]


Paul Rudd Michael Douglas

Marvel Studios has released the first full trailer for Ant-Man, giving fans their first real look at Paul Rudd as the shrinking man himself. The internet pretty much imploded when this one hit last night and where better to gauge the critical reaction than on the hallowed pages of Reddit?

Ant ManPaul Rudd as Scott Lang in Ant-Man

But first: a little background. Ant-Man is a weird one. It doesn't carry the same anticipation as The Avengers: Age of Ultron, Captain America 3 or even Doctor Strange, though it's an intriguing movie with an intriguing cast.

Now, with the ability to shrink his down to a minuscule size while increasing his strength, Ant-Man is born.
