Does Marvel Make Ant-Man Cool?

7/17/2015 8:35pm EDT
I had giant sized hopes for ‘Ant-Man,’ but this film was a series of failed expectations. It had everything going for it – everyman hero Paul Rudd as the lead; hilarious comedienne Judy Greer as a co-star; the hilarious screenwriters of ‘Hot Fuzz’ (Joseph Murray Cornish, Edgar Wright) and ‘Anchorman’ (Adam McKay) on staff; the same production team that oversaw previous Marvel hits - ‘Iron Man’ and ‘Guardians of the Galaxy‘; as well as the most imaginative director possible, Peyton Reed (check out his uber-ironic directing style in ‘Down With Love’). I figured that if anyone could make a one...

'Ant-Man' Star Reveals She's Seven Months Pregnant At Movie Premiere

Evangeline Lilly
Evangeline Lilly showed up to Monday night's premiere of her latest movie, Ant-Man, with a surprise for fans -- she's expecting her second child.

The actress wore a black and white Halston Heritage maxi-dress to her first promotional appearance in support of the Marvel Studios film, one that showed off a very large baby bump.

The 35-year-old's due date is sometime in September, and she told E! News during the premiere that she's seven months along.

"This is my second time around, and I find I've been pretty lucky." She said, "It's pretty straightforward, and I just love it. I feel good, ...

Paul Rudd Is Very Small In First Full Ant-Man Trailer (Watch)

Get To Know Paul Rudd As Ant-Man In First Full Trailer (Watch)
Alright, no more foolin' around. No more ant-sized teases. Or man-sized teases (admittedly, that one was a lot less foolish).

The trailer for "Ant-Man" is finally here!

Marvel debuted the trailer during last night's premiere of "Agent Carter," our first full non-ridiculous look at the second of Marvel's two 2015 films (the first, obviously, being "Avengers: Age of Ultron").

As far as trailers go, it's pretty terrific. It's very much a teaser trailer- there's very little actual Ant-Man action (one shrink, and then a few seconds of our hero riding on ant-back, and that's it).

But we do ge...

'Ant-Man' Gets A Teaser You Won't Need A Magnifying Glass To See

Get A Closer Look At Marvel's 'Ant-Man' Teaser, Now 'Human-Sized
Marvel rolled out the first teaser for this summer's "Ant-Man" on Friday, but the video was only ant-sized, and now the studio has released something we humans can see.

Despite the larger format, the film's first teaser doesn't reveal much more than a few quick glimpses at stars Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly, a prison fight, what appears to be a scientist entering a lab, and a pair of feet clad in red and black boots that match the title hero's costume from the movie poster.

The teaser boasts, "This Tuesday Something Big Arrives" (get it?), as the full trailer will debut on January 6 dur...

'Ant-Man' Teaser Is Perfect For Ants

Marvel Debuts Really Tiny 'Ant-Man' Teaser
Marvel's new Ant-Man teaser trailer has arrived, but don't expect to see much because the video is ant-sized.

The studio released the tiny teaser on Friday to announce that the human-sized trailer will debut on January 6 during the two-hour premiere of "Marvel's Agent Carter" on ABC.

Paul Rudd stars in the film as con-man Scott Lang, who steals a supersuit that gives its wearer the ability to shrink down to the size of an ant from scientist Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) before the two ultimately team up to "pull off a heist that will save the world."

"Ant-Man" hits theaters July 17, and the...

The Hobbit star Evangeline Lilly says that she doesn't believe that marriage can last forever, which is why she has no plans of exchanging vows with partner Norman Kali, a former production assistant on her hit ABC series "Lost."

The two began dating in 2010 and have a three-year-old son together and are currently trying to adopt another child, but Lilly says they have no plans to tie the knot because she doesn't believe in "forever promises."

"Every other 16-year-old girl wanted to look at bridal magazines; I could not have been more bored with the notion," she tells Ocean Drive magazine...

Review: 'Real Steel' 'Two Jews On Film' Have Split Decision On This Action Fantasy (Video)

10/6/2011 7:00pm EDT
Real Steel
Two Jews on Film: By Joan Alperin Schwartz - The year is 2020. Things look pretty much the same as they do now... Except in the world of boxing. Humans have evolved to the point where they no longer get excited by watching men and women pummel each other. Score one for us.

What we have instead is 'Robot Boxing' which I have to say is...really, really cool...especially the way it's depicted in this new fantasy, action film, called 'Real Steel' directed by Shawn Levy.

First of all, these 'robot boxers' aren't your everyday garden variety robots. These animatronic, mechanical men are ov...

Real Steel star Evangeline Lilly's new baby boy has had a lot going on during the first five months of his life - in addition to being born outside during a frightening Hawaiian thunderstorm he's already become a world traveler and spent time living outside his grandparents' house in a tent.

Lilly chose to deliver the baby outdoors in his father's home state because there are "too many rules" at the hospital.

Evangeline Lilly 'Very Concerned' Over Her 'Hobbit' Role

9/22/2011 11:13am EDT
Evangeline Lilly
Evangeline Lilly fears "purist" fans will hate her role in The Hobbit because her character didn't feature in the book and was invented solely for the fantasy film adaptation.

The Lost actress' Sylvan elf Tauriel was created especially for director Peter Jackson's upcoming Lord of the Rings prequel, based on J.R.R. Tolkien's classic novel The Hobbit.

However, Lilly admits she is terrified Tolkien devotees won't respond well when the movie epic is released next year.

She says, "The Hobbit didn't include female characters at all. I can see why additional characters were needed to round ...

Lost's Evangeline Lilly has joined The Hobbit.

"Evangeline Lilly will be playing a new character—the Woodland Elf, Tauriel," director Peter Jackson announced on Facebook. "Her name means 'daughter of Mirkwood' and, beyond that, we must leave you guessing! (No, there is no romantic connection to Legolas.) What is not a secret is how talented and compelling an actress Evangeline is; we are thrilled and excited she will be the one to bring our first true Sylvan Elf to life."

Enigmatic Final Scene Of 'LOST' Added By Network - Not Producers

The final scene shown during ABC's Sunday night broadcast of the "LOST" series finale was added to the show by the network - not executive producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse - according to a report on Entertainment

The last images of Oceanic Flight 815 wreckage strewn across the beach with only the soothing sound of crashing waves in the distance quickly became one of the show's biggest mysteries.

This might be the most difficult thing I've ever written, and I can't even figure out how to get started. LOST has changed television, and if you don't believe that, you don't understand what an incredible show it was. Even haters can realize that with its original plotline and encouragement of science fiction in a major network, it opened doors for shows outside of the box to maybe be taken more seriously than they used to. It was a community show, one that encouraged the millions of fans to think and discuss and speculate together in a way that had never been seen. It decided to cancel it...

Honestly, I don't expect them to answer half of the questions they should, because then it would just be three hours of telling the audience exposition. Still, in an episode that is said to have long reaching answers and prove they knew what they were doing from the beginning, there should actuall...

Evangeline Lilly wasn't planning to become a Hollywood actress when she landed her breakthrough role on hit TV series Lost - she was conducting a "psychological experiment" to boost her self-confidence.

Lilly recently left fans stunned after revealing she may quit acting once the desert island drama ends this month because she's "not passionate" about her career.

And she owes the breakthrough role as leading survivor Kate Austen to a friend who gave her advice to be more bold - because she had spent "five years being a wallflower" before the audition.

She explains, "This was my first ...
