ANT MAN is finally at a theater near you and what a cool movie. I just saw it and like it very much. Not too many overblown special efx and just a solid performance by Paul Rudd as the Ant Man and Michael Douglas as his mentor.
According to Wikipedia; Development of Ant-Man began in April 2006, with the hiring of Wright to direct and co-write with Cornish. By April 2011, Wright and Cornish had completed three drafts of the script and Wright shot test footage for the film in July 2012. Pre-production began in October 2013 after being put on hold so that Wright could complete The World's End. Casting began in December 2013, with the hiring of Rudd to play Lang. In May 2014, Wright left the project, citing creative differences, though he still received screenplay and story credits with Cornish, as well as an executive producer credit. The following month, Reed was brought in as Wright's replacement, while McKay was hired to contribute to the script with Rudd. Principal photography took place between August and December 2014 in San Francisco and Metro Atlanta.
Ant-Man held its world premiere in Los Angeles on June 29, 2015, and was released in North America on July 17, 2015, in 3D and IMAX 3D. Upon its release, the film received positive reviews and has grossed over $226 million worldwide. Definitely a good summer movie all around.
If you like Ant Man you’re sure to like the latest installment of the Mission Impossible series starring Tom Cruise. Mission Impossible 5.
With the IMF now disbanded and Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) out in the cold, a new threat called the Syndicate soon emerges. The Syndicate is a network of highly skilled operatives who are dedicated to establishing a new world order via an escalating series of terrorist attacks. Faced with what may be the most impossible mission yet, Ethan gathers his team and joins forces with Ilsa Faust (Rebecca Ferguson), a disavowed British agent who may or may not be a member of this deadly rogue nation.
Tom Cruise reprises his role as Ethan Hunt, and also costars Jeremy Renner, William Brandt, Simon Pegg, Benji, Rebecca Ferguson and Alec Baldwin. A must see for true MI fans. See you this summer At The Movies.
