‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’ Interview: Evangeline Lilly’s Wasp is Ready to Fly

Just a few steps from the set of Marvel Studios’ Ant-Man and the Wasp, a few other writers and I caught up with actress Evangeline Lilly, who has graduated from Scott Lang’s begrudging trainer/love interest in the original Ant-Man to a full-fledged superhero in her own right in this sequel. During a break from filming, […]

MoviePass Claims They Accounted for 40% of Ticket Sales To The Critically Savaged ‘Gotti’

MoviePass‘s business strategy continues to confound all of us. The ticket-buying service’s sustainability has always been in question since it dropped its prices to the popular $10 a month, but MoviePass was not content to simply disrupt the moviegoing industry. It had to get behind the scenes as well. Cue the perplexing venture into distribution, […]

‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’ Interview: Paul Rudd Talks About The “Weird” Sequel

On a nice September day at Pinewood Studios outside of Atlanta, a handful of journalists and I spoke with one of Marvel’s smallest superheroes on the set of Ant-Man and the Wasp. The effervescent Paul Rudd, who often radiates boundless energy on screen, seemed, well, a little exhausted. It’s hard to blame him – at the […]

Steven Spielberg is Responsible For ‘Bumblebee’s Female Lead Character

The Transformers film franchise doesn’t have a great track record with its female characters. But Bumblebee, the upcoming live-action Transformers spin-off movie, might be the first step toward changing that – and fans have Steven Spielberg to thank for it. Learn about the significant Steven Spielberg Bumblebee contribution below. Speaking with Entertainment Weekly, producer Lorenzo di […]

‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’ Interview: Director Peyton Reed Tells Us About The Film’s Ticking Clock Element

Last fall, I visited the Atlanta set of Marvel Studios’ Ant-Man and the Wasp with a batch of other online reporters. During any set visit for a major film, having a chance to actually speak with the director is far from a guarantee: they’re often just a tiny bit busy as they carry the weight […]

Warner Bros. Decides The Best Business Plan For DC’s Future Is To Make Good Movies

The DCEU has had a bumpy few years, with only Wonder Woman truly standing out as a genuinely enjoyable film. Now, with Aquaman poised to splash into theaters, Warner Bros. film chairman Toby Emmerich has an innovative new plan for the future of the DCEU: make good movies. What a crazy idea! I think even the most ardent […]

Is Another Major ‘Star Wars’ Character Returning for ‘Star Wars: Episode 9’?

After Yoda’s surprise appearance in writer/director Rian Johnson’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi, fans might be seeing another legacy character pop up in writer/director J.J. Abrams‘ upcoming sequel Star Wars: Episode 9. A new rumor indicates that a familiar face will be brought into the fold for the final film in the new trilogy, and it’s reportedly […]

A ‘Justice League’ Artist Confirms The Existence of a “Snyder Cut,” Now People Are Heckling AT&T For Its Release

The Snyder Cut exists! Kind of. A storyboard artist who worked for the embattled Warner Bros. comic book movie recently confirmed a very rudimentary version of Zack Snyder‘s “vision” for Justice League exists. This is by no means the Justice League Snyder cut that fans of the director have been passionately demanding for months now, but it’s […]

How is ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’ Connected With ‘Avengers: Infinity War’?

Ant-Man and the Wasp is about as far from the emotional and physical devastation of Avengers: Infinity War as you could get. There’s no mention of Thanos, destruction, or doom in the film’s trailers — but there is an ant playing the drums. So how does Ant-Man and the Wasp take the events of Infinity War into account? […]

‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’ Set Visit: Everything We Learned About Marvel’s Upcoming Sequel

I’m standing inside Hank Pym’s new high tech laboratory. Pym’s secure room under his house in the first Ant-Man was pretty slick, but this two-story complex puts that place to shame. Banks of computers – some brand new, some decades old – flash as they work side by side. The place has a mixture of […]
