You Can Stop Squinting Now, There's A Full-Sized "Ant-Man" Teaser Now


Paul Rudd

Attention, we now have a full-sized trailer for Marvel’s Ant-Man. Well, it’s still 17-seconds long, so technically still a teaser, but at least you can sort of tell what’s happening in this one, unlike their April-Fools-come-early stunt from a few days ago. Ant-man shrinks, the trailer was tiny, there you go. Clever, clever Marvel.

Paul Rudd
Paul Rudd in a Marvel flick is just too right. Right?

After the studio dropped an “ant-sized” version of the teaser, many, including this staff writer, complained that nothing could actually be gleamed from the miniscule video. So what have we learned this time around?

"He's the world's nicest human being-and the funniest," executive producer Michael Schurtells told Entertainment Weekly, "We made a list of all the people that we wanted to have back, and he was high on the list, so we managed to snag him."

Paul Rudd Chris Pratt Amy Poehler

He may be about to take on the big screen as Ant-Man, but it seems Paul Rudd has some unfinished business to attend to on the small screen first.

So Here's Why Edgar Wright Pulled Out Of 'Ant-Man'


Edgar Wright Evangeline Lilly Paul Rudd

With Edgar Wright on-board, Ant-Man was easily one of the most anticipated movies in recent years. Paul Rudd in the lead role was an intriguing and creative casting decision and support from Evangeline Lilly and Michael Douglas hinted that Wright and his collaborators were cooking up something special.

Ant ManPaul Rudd as Scott Lang in Ant-Man

However, it became immediately apparent that Wright and Marvel were not meshing and the British filmmaker's vision for Hank Pym's story clearly wasn't in-line with the studio's ingredients for a money-maker.

They Came Together Review


Good

How do you spoof a genre that's already a joke? Filmmakers David Wain and Michael Showalter clearly think the answer is to go for broke with a nonstop barrage of silliness, because some of the jokes are bound to stick. They did the same thing for teen summer-camp comedies more than a decade ago with Wet Hot American Summer, which stars many of the same actors. And while this movie is just as hilarious, it never quite transcends its own jokiness. Because as a rom-com it's never very engaging.

The story plays out as Joel and Molly (Paul Rudd and Amy Poehler) meet up with their friends (Bill Hader and Ellie Kemper) and regale them with the story of their romance. Everything about their courtship is just like in the movies, from the meet-cute to the fact that New York is another character in their story. Molly runs an adorable candy shop, while Joel is a "not too handsome or too Jewish" corporate raider sent to shut her down, but they hit it off, engage in a wildly energetic first sexual encounter, then go through the usual montage sequences on their way to the usual rough patches ("Your dreams don't pay the rent!"), breakups and mad-dash reunions.

Since it's told in flashbacks, the film feels almost like a collection of comedy sketches, most of which are ridiculously funny. The jokes are clever and pointed, with riotous side characters including sassy best friends, inappropriate relatives, idiotic coworkers and clingy ex-lovers. So every scene is a zany mixture of goofy slapstick, surreal visual gags and hysterically overstated emotion. Thankfully, the cast is more than adept at wringing every moment for laughter. Rudd and Poehler have impeccable timing, and they're supported by a terrific cast of seasoned comical actors, including amusing cameos from the likes of Adam Scott, Michael Shannon and Norah Jones.

'Ant-Man' Stands Under The Golden Gate Bridge In First Look Picture


Paul Rudd John Slattery

Marvel’s Ant-Man has had its fair share of setbacks, but production is fully underway now and we have a first look photo to whet our appetites. 

Ant ManPaul Rudd as Ant-Man

The photo sees Paul Rudd as the titular ant hero (not anti-hero) standing under the Golden Gate Bridge next to a beaten up old Ford. We’re guessing he’s got some reason to go incognito, as he’s looking fairly conspicuous – hood up and holding a mystery bag. He’s also been in the wars as evidenced by those butterfly stiches on his brow.

Ant-Man's Yes-Man Is Peyton Reed. He's Directing The Film, Okay?


Peyton Reed Edgar Wright Paul Rudd

After weeks of speculation following Edgar Wright’s high profile Ant-Man departure, a new director has finally been revealed: Peyton Reed will now helm the project starring Paul Rudd and set for release in 2015.

Reed is most notable for Yes-Man, the 2008 comedy starring Jim Carrey, but his most critically acclaimed work is 2000’s Bring It On. His highest grossing film is The Break Up, starring Jennifer Aniston and Vince Vaughn.

Are Nicholas Stoller And Michael Dowse The Frontrunners For The Ant-Man Chair?


Edgar Wright Paul Rudd Michael Dowse

The Internet has definitely sided with Edgar Wright since he and Ant-Man unceremoniously split on May 23. That probably has something to do with Joss Whedon’s Twitter salute to the ex-Ant-Man man, but either way, a running joke has prevailed: no one wants to direct Ant-Man. Did we say Ant-Man enough? Ant-Man.

Nicholas StollerNicholas Stoller Could Get The Job

It’s not exactly a desirably gig; the film already has a ridiculous amount of hype behind it, and whoever gets the job will have to stick to a tight schedule with a script that is still in flux. It’s the kind of situation the phrase ‘deep end’ was first uttered for.

Does Anybody Out There Want To Direct 'Ant-Man'?


Edgar Wright Adam McKay Paul Rudd

Following the departure of Edgar Wright, Anchorman director Adam McKay was being courted to direct Ant-Man for Disney and Marvel though has passed up the opportunity. It seemed a strange direction for the movie to be heading in, though the heavyweight studios are likely to have been attracted to McKay's long history with lead star Paul Rudd

Adam McKayAdam McKay Will Not Direct Ant-Man

Wright, who last directed The World's End, had been attached to the superhero movie since 2006 though resigned last week over creative differences. It left Disney scrambling around for a director late on Friday night and they would have confident in landing McKay before the comedy filmmaker rejected their advances.

With Edgar Wright Out, "Ant-Man" Still Lives, But Who Will Take It?


Paul Rudd

Anchorman director Edgar Wright has pulled out of Marvel’s Ant-Man project an his replacement is currently the subject of speculation. According to The Wrap, Rawson Marshall Thurber is the current frontrunner to take on the movie, due out in 2015. “Multiple individuals familiar with the project” have reportedly confirmed the news, though there is still no official word from Marvel.

Edgar Wright
Wright, who directed cult classics like Shaun of the Dead and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World won't add his original style to the movie.

The studio does insist, however, that Ant-Man will make its planned release date of July 17 next year, despite the unforeseen circumstances. Another name reportedly on the list is that of Zombieland director Ruben Fleischer, however due to recent events in his personal life (Fleischer just had a baby with his wife, publicist Holly Shakoor Fleischer) he might be unable or simply reluctant to take on a massive, time-consuming project like Marvel’s next blockbuster. While Fleischer’s latest, Gangster Squad, was one of the most note-worthy flops of 2013, the helmer has proven that he has both the visual chops and the ability to balance drama and comedy with films like Zombieland.

Is 'Anchorman' Director Adam McKay In Talks To Direct Marvel's 'Ant Man'?


Adam McKay Paul Rudd Evangeline Lilly Michael Douglas Edgar Wright

It's another is he-isn't he situations which will never truly be resolved unless Adam McKay chooses to take the position as Ant Man director, or it'll just remain another unconfirmed rumour. Ant Man has been in a state of development since 2003 and there still seems to be some troubles even with filming about to start this summer. With the film's initial director, Edgar Wright, walking out last week what will the future look like for the upcoming Marvel film?

Adam McKay
Adam McKay is rumoured to be in talks with Marvel.

Edgar Wright, who has been working on the movie's script since 2003, resigned last week over creative differences. Reports suggest Marvel changed Wright's script without his permission. Wright not only penned the screenplay but was also set to direct, leaving the Ant Man team in dire need of a director. As Variety reported, McKay was seemingly in talks with the film's producers and may be stepping in to take over from Wright.

Corey Stoll, the American actor who played Peter Russo in the first season of Netflix's 'House of Cards,' is in talks to join Edgar Wright's Ant-Man movie.

Just days after Lindsay Lohan allegedly released a list of her famous bedroom partners, Seth Rogen has revealed all the Hollywood stars that have joined him for a premium pot-smoking session. Rogen - the star of Knocked Up, Pineapple Express and Neighbors - has made no secret of his penchant for a smoke, and now we know who he's lighting up with.

During an interview with Watch What Happens Live, Rogen said: "This is really depressing for me to say ... I've never smoked weed with James Franco because he doesn't smoke weed. That's why he's such a good actor! It's really sad, actually." The friends starred together in the stoner comedy Pineapple Express.

Why Ant-Man Is The Marvel Movie You Need To Get Excited About


Evangeline Lilly Paul Rudd

With reports that Evangeline Lily is in talk to play the female lead in Ant-Man, the film looks to be taking shape very nicely. With Edgar Wright directing and Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas already on board to star, Marvel’s smallest hero might just end up being their biggest and best outing yet.

Evangeline Lilly could be the latest addition to the Ant-Man castEvangeline Lilly could be the latest addition to the Ant-Man cast

The Antman plot could be very interesting:    
                                                                                             
The story of Ant-Man is pretty complex even for the Marvel universe. The character first appeared as scientist Henry 'Hank' Pym, Pym ended up having a troubled character history and many were unsure how this would play out in the movie. However Edgar Wright has confirmed the Ant-Man movie will focus on Scott Lang as Ant-Man. In the comics, Lang steals the suit in order to help cure his daughter. Wright has kept mum about what the plot to the Ant-Man film will be but we do know it will feature both Hank Pym and Scott Lang. However Wright chooses to tackle the Ant-Man story it's sure to be an interesting one

Evangeline Lilly In Talks With Marvel For 'Ant-Man'


Evangeline Lilly Paul Rudd Michael Pena Michael Douglas

Ant-Man's love interest may be played by Evangeline Lilly. Lilly who has most recently appeared as the elf Tauriel in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, is rumoured to be in early talks with Marvel, according to Variety.

The 34-year-old actress could be, should talks prove successful and media outlets accurate, starring as the daughter of Hank Pym and the love interest of Scott Lang/Ant-Man in the 2015 Marvel film adaptation of their comic-book classic. Paul Rudd, best known for his comedic roles in Friends and Anchorman, is set to star as Ant-Man, a superhero who is able to change his size. Michael Douglas will be involved in the project and Michael Peña (Gangster Squad) is also rumoured to have been cast in the film. 

In comic book lore, there have been three Ant-Men: the first being Hank Pym, a scientist who first discovers how to alter his size using a substance he creates. Pym, in the upcoming adaptation, will be played by Michael Douglas. Although Pym did not have a daughter in the comics (strangely Lang did) this may be director and co-writer Edgar Wright's new different approach to the film.

The Sundance Film Festival is the place to be for young, aspiring filmmakers hoping to crack into the hotly-contested business of the movies. By the end of the film festival, which this year runs from 16-26 January, there are always a selection of film titles that are revived for the following awards season, and this year people are so eager for the celluloid showcase that a number of early contenders for festival glory have been marked before their debut release.

God's Pocket
The dark God's Pocket stars Philip Seymour Hoffman and Eddie Marsan

In thirty years the film has discovered some of the most promising filmmakers out there and continues to deliver, from Roland Joffé’s The Killing Fields in the festival's opening year (1985) to last year's most notable success; Fruitvale Station, the debut feature length from Ryan Coogler. With another 120 films to get through this year it seems more than likely that at least one of the releases will be leaving Park City, Utah, with more than a few skiing lessons and a commemorative t-shirt.

Five Things To Know About Ant-Man Before The Movie Buzz Begins


Paul Rudd James Spader Stan Lee

Since the recent almost announcement that Marvel have cast Paul Rudd in the title role of the Ant-Man movie, the project seems about 1000% more real. It’s actually happening people. And despite Ant-Man sounding ridiculous and generally being one of Marvel’s lesser known heroes, let’s not forget that this is the company that made the guy who fights armed forces with a bow and arrow cool. These people know what they’re doing. So in honor of Ant-Man being a real thing in the movie-verse, we’re going to give you the five facts about him that you really need to know in advance.

Paul Rudd, Anchorman 2 Premiere
In honour of Rudd's tentative casting, here's the rundown on Ant-Man.

1. He can shrink in size and control bugs, hence the name. No, seriously, this man’s superpower is that he can control insects and use them in his crime solving escapades. We’re already picturing a giant CGI wave of bugs flooding the streets and foiling the plans of whichever villain the screenwriters decide to pit against him. And isn’t that an exciting prospect.

The Legend Continues, But Was 'Anchorman 2' Worth The Effort?


Will Ferrell Paul Rudd

It's been nine years since we first met Ron Burgundy, as inhabited by Will Ferrell in 2004's Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy. The film wasn't a massive hit when it opened, but over the years a cult following has steadily grown. So with the increasing popularity it was inevitable that a sequel would arise. (You can read our review of the movie here).

Anchorman 2 The Legend ContinuesPaul Rudd [L] and Will Ferrell [R] Smoke Crack in 'Anchorman 2: The Lgend Continues'

And here we have Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, a comedy pastiche that's likely to only properly please die-hard fans of the original's mixture of broad goofiness and surreally absurd gags. The gang is all back - Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd, Steve Carell, David Koechner, Christina Applegate, plus cameos from Harrison Ford, Vince Vaughn and many more.

Paul Rudd Cast As Ant-Man In New Superhero Movie


Paul Rudd

Paul Rudd has been cast in his first superhero role as he takes the lead in upcoming Marvel action movie, Ant-Man. The Anchorman actor beat off competition from the likes of Joseph Gordon-Levitt to secure the role and will play the genius Dr. Hank Pym who devises a method to shrink himself to the size of an ant.

Rudd, 44, has made his name as a comedy actor, but has reportedly contributed to the Ant-Man screenplay, as he did with offbeat comedies Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World and The World's End. The decision is said to have swung in Rudd's favour due to Gordon-Levitt's prior commitments to DC Comics' The Sandman movie, according to BBC News.

Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues Review


Good

It's been nearly 10 years since we first met Ron Burgundy, and this sequel is just as random and silly as expected. It's also more like a series of referential gags than an actual movie comedy, and as with the original film the best bits are knowing jabs at absurdities of the news media. This time we're in the 1980s, so there's plenty to make fun of here.

Over the past decade, Ron (Ferrell) has married Veronica (Applegate), and they've taken a joint anchor job in New York, where they live with their son (Nelson). But when Veronica lands a coveted network news job, Ron has a meltdown. Drunk and unemployed, he's approached to work on a new station: a 24-hour cable news channel. Even though he's sure this crazy idea will never catch on, Ron re-assembles his old team (swaggering reporter Rudd, dazed weatherman Carell and goofy sports guy Koechner) to beat handsome anchor Jack Lime (Marsden) in the ratings. And Ron's offbeat, populist approach changes the news forever.

This comical exploration of how TV news has shifted from hard reporting to shameless audience pandering gives the film a whiff of depth, which helps make the comical moments a lot funnier. The screenplay is a series of sketch-comedy episodes that don't quite hang together. For example, you could delete an extended sequence in which Ron goes blind, nurses a shark to health and sings a big musical number, and the movie wouldn't change at all. But all of these sequences have an absurd genius behind them that often gets us laughing, sometimes in disbelief.

'Ant-Man' Will Star Paul Rudd In 2015. Should We Be Excited?


Paul Rudd Joseph Gordon-Levitt Robert Downey Jr

Marvel is steadily gearing up for its highly anticipated “phase 3” and it looks like the studio may cast Paul Rudd as Ant Man, a lesser known superhero soon to be brought to the Marvel film universe. Ant-Man is definitely one of the less coveted roles within the Marvel-verse and the decision to bring the character into the films was originally questioned by fans, because of Ant-Man’s mostly comedic role in the comics. Rudd himself is currently promoting his most recent movie, Anchorman 2, where he stars opposite Will Ferrell, Steve Carell and Christina Applegate.

Paul Rudd, Anchorman 2 Premiere
Rudd's casting is yet to be confirmed by Marvel officials.

Then again, there were similar concerns before the introduction of Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man. Originally, the actor was selected for his similar personality to the character of Tony Stark and with Paul Rudd being known mostly for his comedic work, it seems the studio might be using the same casting method.

The legend of San Diego's Channel 4 news team may have long since dissolved over the years, but anchors Ron Burgundy, Brian Fantana, Brick Tamland and Champ Kind are set to return as part of a brand new 24-hour news channel. In a bid to innovate newsreading and once again come out on top over Ron's wife and rival Veronica, they decide that they're going to give viewers the news they want to hear rather than what they need to. As usual, their antics involve the usual scandal and debauchery, putting their careers and tarnished reputations once again in the media's line of fire. No matter though, as these co-workers have each other's backs all the way.

Steve Carell Had Difficulty Filming 'Anchorman 2' Because Will Ferrell Was Too Funny For Him


Steve Carell Will Ferrell Christina Applegate Paul Rudd Olly Murs James Corden David Koechner

Actor Steve Carell had difficulty working on the 'Anchorman' sequel because he found Will Ferrell so funny it was ''almost impossible'' to work with him. The 51-year-old 'Despicable Me' actor apparently had no quarrels with immediately signing on for 'Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues', as the 2004 original was the "best fun" he's ever had. On the flip side, it made his job incredibly difficult, as he was almost unable to film certain scenes as he struggled to keep his composure.

In an interview with 'Bang Showbiz' at 'Anchorman 2''s premiere at The Odeon, Leicester Square, London, the 'Crazy, Stupid, Love.' star explained that: 'There's a scene we did in a lighthouse with Ron and it's probably the scene I laughed the hardest at.

Local News Anchor Dresses Up & Acts Like Ron Burgundy For Live Telecast [Video]


Will Ferrell David Koechner Steve Carell Paul Rudd

Ron Burgundy, Will Ferrell's timeless comic creation and the star of the upcoming Anchorman sequel, Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, has no shortage of fans and imitators. Paul Gerke, the sports reporter for Boise’s KIVI Channel 6 local television station is both a fan and imitator of San Diego's finest newscaster, and on Halloween he saw his opportunity not just to dress up as Burgundy, but give his best impression of him too.

Anchorman 2
The Anchorman sequel will be out in time for Christmas

On Thursday's (31 October) edition of the evening news, Gerke donned a classy suit, a thick moustache and (probably) a glass of scotch under his desk to create a piece of local TV gold. His sportscast was littered with Anchorman references too, with Gerke picking his teeth at the beginning of the segment, commenting that he has just eaten ribs, shamelessly promoting the new Dodge Durango (Burgundy appears in a new line of commercials for the vehicle) and cramming no shortage of quotes from the first film into his 5 minute segment. The video is a must see.

Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues - International Trailer


The news used to be a noble profession before the likes of Ron Burgundy with his set of San Diego anchors Brian Fantana, Brick Tamland and Champ Kind took over. Now it's all about scandal, debauchery and vulgarity and Burgundy and his team are fighting hard to keep it that way. As per usual, they manage to get themselves in all kinds of trouble involving drugs in the studio, completely inappropriate news headlines, accidental racism (not to mention homophobia) and, of course, getting laid, and it's all in a bid to remain on top of the media as Ron fights his own battle to professionally tower over his wife and rival Veronica.

'Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues' is the even more hilarious sequel to 2004's 'Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy'. There's definitely more laughs to be had from everyone's favourite news readers as Judd Apatow ('The 40 Year Old Virgin', 'Knocked Up', 'Forgetting Sarah Marshall') returns to produce it. Director Adam McKay ('Step Brothers', 'The Other Guys', 'Talladega Nights') is also back alongside his co-writer and star Will Ferrell. It is set to feature in cinemas just in time for Christmas, premiering in theatres everywhere on December 20th 2013.

Prince Avalanche Review


Excellent

For this low-key comedy-drama, writer-director David Gordon Green harks back to the quirky charms of his 2003 gem All the Real Girls (rather than the overt silliness of Pineapple Express or The Sitter). This is an astute story about two men who are begrudgingly forced to look at the truth about themselves while isolated from the rest of society. It's a simple idea, beautifully shot and acted.

Set in 1988, the story centres on Alvin (Rudd), who hires his girlfriend's brother Lance (Hirsch) to work with him one summer repairing a rural stretch of Texas highway that was damaged by wildfires. These two guys have nothing in common, but share a tent as they move along the road and work through their private issues. Lance just wants someone to love, and is annoyed that he can't get a girl during weekend trips to town. And Alvin is so devoted to his girlfriend that her break-up letter comes as a deep shock. So now there's nothing really holding these two guys together aside from their pathetic loneliness.

Both Rudd and Hirsch give offhanded, natural performances that play up the comical clashes between them while hinting at much darker issues gurgling beneath the surface. Neither is very good at striking up a conversation, and their awkward interaction is both hilarious and realistically messy. But they don't have many other people to talk to. Although there's a trucker (LeGault) who provides a super-strong homemade hooch, and they have a haunting encounter with a woman (Payne) who lost everything in the fire.
