Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Paul Rudd for ‘Ant-Man’
Well, if a place can be found for Vin Diesel in the Marvel-verse then anything is possible. That said, the two names emerging as front-runners for "Ant-Man" are surprising, but not exactly unpleasant.

Director Phil Morrison hasn't made a film since his exceptional debut indie, "Junebug," which launched Amy Adams in 2005. Brimming with life, even without the Oscar-nominated and very-worthy firecracker Adams performance, the movie is flush with an idiosyncratic humanity and especially complex and uniquely written characters. However, his long belated follow-up, "All Is Bright,” arriving some eight years after his auspicious beginning, possesses little traces of the spark that made "Junebug" so special.

Paul Rudd,Paul Giamatti, Almost Christmas
It's been eight years waiting for a follow-up from Phil Morrison, director of the wry Oscar-nominated drama “Junebug,” and now that the occasion's finally arrived, he's unfortunately faced with being the second Paul Rudd two-hander this year. “All Is Bright,” which premiered in April at Tribeca (under the awful title “Almost Christmas”), sees Rudd paired with Paul Giamatti and selling Christmas trees to resistant passers-by. Hilarious, right? Well, a new trailer has dropped, suggesting that the tone for the film is more “Bad Santa” than “Prince Avalanche.” So that's something.

It was bound to happen: Ron Burgundy, the egotistical news anchor played by Will Ferrell in 2004's"Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy" and this winter's "Anchorman: The Legend Continues," will have his own leather-bound book (undoubtedly smelling of rich mahogany). According to Rolling Stone, a new book supposedly authored by Burgundy will be out on November 19th. But that's not all: the new issue of Entertainment Weekly, which features Burgundy and his fellow newscasters on the cover, also offers some insight into the film's plot as well as revealing what would have been had the film come to fruition in its original form: as a lavish Broadway musical.

Prince Avalanche
It's the summer of 1988 and a violent wildfire has swept through Texas, destroying 43,000 acres and some 16,000 homes. In the wake of this horrific devastation -- a freak of nature that no experts can explain -- two highway road crew workers spend the season in isolation, painting and repairing the roads that lie alongside these ravaged forests. Disciplined to a fault, Alvin (Paul Rudd) is perhaps too tightly wound for his own good and has a myopic idea of what a man should be. The boss of this operation, he loves the solitude the job affords him, and being away from the nearby (unnamed) big city. His girlfriend however, isn't entirely sold on the idea. Lance (Emile Hirsch), his partner and polar opposite, is a hopeless, emotionally immature dumbass. He lives for the weekend, getting wasted and getting laid. In fact, the only reason he has this job is because he's the brother of Madison, Alvin's girlfriend.

Prince Avalanche
The bickering buddies format is so familiar, it's hard to believe that it can still be used and seem fresh, funny and vibrant, but sometimes you just need the right mix of talent. David Gordon Green, Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch are just that in "Prince Avalanche," and a brand new, charming trailer is here to convince you to get out of the house this summer, hit your local arthouse and settle in for a real treat. (It's on our list of Best Films Of The Year...So Far for a reason).

Anchorman: The Legend Continues banner (skip)
And yes, "Anchorman: The Legend Of Ron Burgundy" is still the balls, an unrelentingly quotable and flat out hilarious comedy that pretty much launched Will Ferrell and the rest of the Channel 4 News team. But nearly a full decade has passed, and much has changed, and as one bartender once said, possibly in Spanish: "Ladies can do stuff now and you're going to learn how to deal with it." And well, we'll just learn along with Ron and the gang as their back.

While technically speaking, David Gordon Green's indie "Prince Avalanche" is a remake of the Icelandic film "Either Way," to box it into that category alone is to miss the point. Shot pretty much in secret last year, and unveiled to great acclaim at Sundance, the filmmaker's latest is yet another sharp turn in a career that remains both exciting and unpredictable. And for those of you who couldn't make it to park city, the first trailer has arrived.
