Ant-Man
"The way technology has advanced just in the last few years, picturing this world, what they can do with this kind of storyline and character, I thought this could be something that could be very strange and hasn't been seen before," Paul Rudd told USA Today about taking on Marvel's "Ant-Man." "I was really excited about being a part of something like that."

The elephant in the room was not largely addressed during Marvel’s Comic-Con “Ant-Man” panel. Onstage, there was little talk of the older iteration of “Ant-Man” that was going to be directed by a filmmaker you might have heard of named Edgar Wright (though there was a guy loyally standing outside of the convention center all day with a sign that said “Edgar Wright was right”). If the “Ant-Man” snafu in May was a PR disaster for the studio, all was forgotten by the Comic-Com faithful once the celebrity glad-handing began and teaser footage unspooled (ahh, those fickle fans, who initially insisted they’d no longer pay to see this film…)

Anchorman: The Legend Of Ron Burgundy
Ten years ago today, Will Ferrell presented the world with what is still one of his greatest creations, "Anchorman: The Legend Of Ron Burgundy." As you already know from still quoting the movie a decade later, it became a cult hit, and spawned a sequel that was not as good (have you ever quoted anything from "Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues"?). But the original remains untouchable, and so it's time to blow out the birthday candles.

They Came Together
A parody that loves, knows and understands what it’s mocking, David Wain’s “They Came Together” (co-written with Michael Showalter) lovingly nuzzles up to the plots, clichés and tropes of the modern big-studio rom-com specifically, only to then slash at the jugular to spill their anemic, overly sweet blood. It knows how to mock cliché big things, like jokes about set-dressing and music video montages; it’s also wise about small matters, right down to the font and the framing device. Molly (Amy Poehler) is a lovable klutz who owns a small candy shop in New York; Joel (Paul Rudd) is a good, non-threateningly handsome man who happens to work for the candy mega-corporation that’s about to knock Molly’s tiny shop out of business.

The drama around Marvel’s “Ant-Man” has finally settled. Edgar Wright has moved on, Peyton Reed is the new director and “Anchorman” filmmaker Adam McKay is going to pen the rewrite (though c’mon people, no one’s going to leak Wright and Joe Cornish’s draft? That’s something everyone wants to read). What’s left other than to see the film next summer? Well, more details obviously since the Internets can’t resist revealing everything about a movie. Some spoilers below obviously.

Is this week’s “Ant-Man”/Marvel drama finally drawing to a close? It’s been such a whirlwind of emojis I don’t even know what to think anymore. Yet who to believe? Earlier today, three men emerged as the finalists to fill the director’s chair on “Ant-Man” recently vacated by filmmaker Edgar Wright after eight years of development and what sounds like a last minute losing of nerve from Marvel in favor of something more safe and familiar.

Sausage Party, Rogen, Rudd, McBride
For all the “brave” or “risky” movie projects Annapurna Pictures backs, this one might be their biggest dare so far. When was the last time there was an R-rated animated film in wide-release theaters for adults? Aside from the Ralph Bakshi films from the 1970s, the “Heavy Metal" movie in the 1980s and after 1999's "South Park: Bigger Longer & Uncut," the pickins are pretty slim (and we're talking theatrical, not DVD releases). Animated films are mostly the domain of kids movies, but Annapurna does have quite the project in Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s “Sausage Party.”

“We threw in every element: the opposites-attract story line, the Jewish-but-not-too-Jewish funny leading man, the klutzy woman whom you kind of love, the sassy best friend, the black best friend, the wise old grandmother,” writer/director David Wain told EW about his new purposefully cliché rom-com. ”Anything we could think of, we found a place for it in there.” Titled “They Came Together,” the comedy stars Paul Rudd and Amy Poehler and basically acts to send-up and spoof all meet cute romantic comedies.
