The first **Ant-Man** is a good film. Immediately following **Avengers: Age of Ultron** is was light, funny, full of great performances, and had refreshingly small, personal stakes. **Ant-Man & The Wasp** continues these traditions: it’s a light, funny movie with some great performances, smaller, more personal stakes, and it immediately followed **Avengers: Infinity War** which had literal end-of-the-entire-universe stakes. Is this new entry in the Marvel experiment good though? Yes, yes it is! Is it better than the last one? Well… maybe?
There’s a shiny new full trailer for _Ant-Man_ and it looks really good!
Fair warning, this trailer feels like it gives away from plot details. That being said so do most Marvel trailers and they’ve basically all been pretty misleading about what the real story is. You call. Don’t say I never warned you.
Good news everyone! Marvel’s _Ant-Man_ is officially in production and they’ve announced a bunch of people to the cast!
So the Marvel Cinematic Universe is basically the US Harry Potter, in which everyone who is an actor will have a part.
This is not a complaint as they’ve just added Michael Douglas to the mix.
What do you get when you put four amazing, ageing actors in a movie where they play best friends reuniting for a part in Last Vegas? You get a movie that offer few surprises but more than a few big laughs.
Last Vegas is a movie that has kind of passed me by so far. It looks like it’s basically The Hangover but for people my dad’s age. That’s kind of ok though. Here’s a trailer and a poster.
It’s a little strange to me that Behind the Candelabra came out on HBO rather than in theatres. It’s a little strange to me that none of the studios in North America have picked the movie up for distribution. It’s a little strange to me that after all the progress we’ve made in the world the story of Liberace is still too gay for America, even though there’s nothing much there that you haven’t already seen in Brokeback Mountain and others.
It’s a shame too because Behind the Candelabra is a great movie, and this way you might not get a chance to see it.
