Paul Rudd Stars In Official Trailer For ‘The Catcher Was a Spy’ (VIDEO)

Do you love a good true story? If so, you might be interested in Paul Rudd’s upcoming film, The Catcher Was a Spy. The film, which is being directed by Ben Lewin, stars Rudd as Boston Red Sox catcher turned U.S. spy Moe Berg.

The story follows Berg as he is recruited by the U.S. government for his intimate knowledge of Eastern European language and history during World War II.

Berg was an incredibly intelligent dude. He spoke several languages, had degrees from Princeton and Columbia, and had a successful record in trivia quiz shows.

“As an intelligence operative, he interviewed physicists about the Nazi nuclear program and played an instrumental role in the U.S. effort to defeat Germany, later transferring to the CIA.”

In addition to Rudd, you’ll also find Jeff Daniels, Paul Giamatti and Sienna Miller co-starring in the film.

It’ll hit theaters June 22, 2018. Check out the trailer below…

Watch The Hilarious First Trailer For ‘Ideal Home’ Starring Paul Rudd And Steve Coogan

There have been a lot of gay movies released recently, and some of them have been outstanding. Most recently you had ‘Moonlight‘ and ‘Call Me By Your Name,’ both of those movies were dramas, though. There was very little comedy in them.

And that’s why we’re excited for the upcoming film titled ‘Ideal Home,’ the gay comedy stars Paul Rudd and Steve Coogan as a bickering gay couple whose life is turned inside out “when a ten-year old boy shows up at their door claiming to be Erasmus’ grandson.”

You don’t see many gay comedies because it’s easy to come across as offensive, so it’ll be interesting to see if this film can manage to be funny without offending loads of people.

Ideal Home will be released June 29, 2018. In addition to Rudd and Coogan, you’ll also find Allison Pill, Jake McDorman and Jack Gore.

Watch Paul Rudd, Alexander Skarsgard And Justin Theroux Star In Trailer For Sci-Fi Action Flick ‘Mute’

All you cool kids out there probably remember a little film called ‘Moon,’ which was released back in 2009. The film stars Sam Rockwell as an astronaut whose three-year shift at a lunar mine is finally coming to an end. It was a wonderful film, winning several awards, including the BAFTA for outstanding debut by a British writer, director or producer.

Duncan Jones won that award. He wrote and directed the film, and now he’s back with his next original feature titled Mute. The film, which was purchased by Netflix, is set in a near-future Berlin. Alexander Skarsgard plays a mute barman who is desperate to find his missing girlfriend.

Paul Rudd and Justin Theroux play a pair of “irreverent U.S. army surgeons named Cactus Bill and Duck.” It seems like an odd mix of actors, but it looks like they all worked well together. Theroux is known for his dramatic role in the stunning HBO series The Leftovers, but he’s known for his humor off set, so it makes sense to pair him with someone like Rudd.

Mute will be released on Netflix February 23, 2018. Watch the trailer below to see if you should get excited or not…

Movie Review: Captain America Civil War


So this was probably one of the most anticipated movies of the spring, despite the fact that it was up against some intense competition, with Jungle Book and Mother’s Day being strong performers. However, I was pretty sure this one would take the number one spot, as it’s already set records outside the US. And for once, a big budget blockbuster is pleasing critics and hitting all the right notes with audiences.

And it had a lot of notes to hit.

The film opens in 1991, with a frozen Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan) being thawed out for another in a series of murderous missions. One after another, the code words needed to activate the killer are spoken: “daybreak … furnace … homecoming … freight car …” Flash forward to present-day Lagos, where an Avengers squad made up of Captain America (Chris Evans), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Falcon (Anthony Mackie), and Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) is foiling the theft of a biological weapon. There’s a shit ton of casualties and it all goes downhill for the Avengers from there when they have to submit for government oversight.


There’s a lot going on, but they managed to balance it pretty well. I never got too confused, despite a cast of what feels like millions. They go through ever doggone country in the world and tie in every other franchise that Joss Wheaton ever read a comic on, and they never stop moving. All the actors blended into their characters, and there’s a lot of characters to keep straight.

But for the most part, I still knew what was going on, because the plot’s pretty straight forward. They don’t want to deal with United Nations regulators telling them what to do, despite the wake of destruction they often leave. It doesn’t become a one sided argument, because it argues the point from both sides. I mean, when you see what they leave behind when they’re being heroic, you can kind of see the government’s point.

“Yeah, guys, you got that lady’s purse back from a mugger, but there were 45 civilian casualties and your caused $85 billion worth of damage to the city. Maybe next time, don’t start with the nuclear option?”


It all eventually culminates in one of the best battle scenes I’ve ever seen. It should have been confusing, or too much, but it wasn’t. The direction is subtle but the action is perfectly choreographed, which is why I never felt like it was too much, when this movie should be the definition of too much. There’s a method to this madness, and I didn’t even resent the over the top ads for future movies.

The latest offering of Captain America is a misnomer, because it’s got just about every other character you can think of. But it’s extremely well-done to the point where you can follow it easily. It’s controlled chaos and worth the watch. It’s one of those rare movies that’s critic and audience approved and should not be missed.

Netflix And Amazon Are The Top Buyers At Sundance Film Festival, Find Out Which Film Sold For $10 Million


While most traditional distributors haven’t picked up anything coming out of the 11-day Sundance Film Festival, Netflix and Amazon have been extremely busy. Amazon is leading the way with four films and Netflix is not far behind with three.

And it looks like Amazon might have scored one of the most popular films at the festival. The Casey Affleck-led drama Manchester By the Sea sparked a passionate bidding war after its successful premiere at the festival this past weekend.

According to Deadline, the auction went on all night, and Amazon finally came out on top with a $10 million deal. Why was the streaming service willing to pay so much? Because the film has the potential to win some awards, which is why there are “plans for a traditional theatrical release with an awards season campaign.”

Matt Damon is a producer on the film, and he told USA Today that he cried every single time he read the script.

“Basically, it’s one of the best roles I’ve ever seen. Casey instantly took the role. Because he saw what we all saw. I never made it through this script without crying. … I wish I was in it, but I’m happy to be attached to it.”

Meanwhile, Netflix dropped a cool $7 million for the global streaming rights to “The Fundamentals of Caring,” which stars Paul Rudd, Selena Gomez and Craig Roberts. It’s based on the 2012 novel of the same name by Jonathan Evison.

Gomez promoted the movie heavily on her Instagram while filming was taking place early last year.


Movie Review: Ant-Man – It’s Stupid In The Right Way

Ant-Man-Movie-Image-Gallery-Photos - 29JUL2015

Ant-Man is the newest super hero release with a comedic twist, and it’s pleasing critics and audiences alike. This snarky sci-fi flick, with an unlikely hero, it’s one to watch this summer. Here’s why.

Our hero is Scott, a thief with a master’s in engineering. When he runs into a reclusive scientist with a special suit, he’s more than happy to try it on. With the push of a button, he’s the size of a dime. What follows is an interesting scene involving Scott getting sucked into vacuums and such. Realizing his new power, Scott does the whole becoming a super hero thing and even finds an arch nemesis. He’s a dude that can turn into a yellow jacket.

While it sounds stupid, it’s stupid in the right way. It’s stupid in the way that Shaun of the Dead was stupid. It’s also hilarious, interesting and even kind of visually stunning. Of course, a lot of the visuals are recycled. Take the Ant-Man suit for example. It’s pretty much an Iron Man Suit. They didn’t even change the color scheme that much.

Ant-Man-Movie-Ant-Man-Gets-Stuck - 29JUL2015

However, for a movie that does such a good job on using the standard super hero tropes, with some self-aware tongue in cheek humor, recycled visuals can be ok. Especially with such a unique storyline. Edgar Wight is credited with some of the story line creation, which explains the similar feel to movies like “Shaun of the Dead”.

Paul Rudd was a fantastic choice for the lead. He’s unheroic enough to give the character a certain lack of grace and gritty realness, but he also has awesome comedic timing, which this movie relied on. The great thing about the movie is that the same thing that makes Ant-Man heroic is what makes him vulnerable. The danger of being squashed while in insect form would have been hard to pull off if not for Rudd’s performance.

It’s a fresh take for a summer filled with big budget blockbuster action movies. Not that it isn’t well done. It’s just a bit lower key and a more slapstick and funny than other movies in the sci-fi genre. The movie knows how to laugh at itself, while keeping viewers entertained.

I have to say, I was a bit disappointed with the main female character Hope (Evangeline Lilly). In a way I was kind of expecting her to emerge as some sort of femme fatale, but instead, her character stays pretty flat and sees no growth at all. So in that, I was disappointed. The two father-daughter stories were sweet, but not overtly so, and they managed to put a bit emotion into the script, in a way that doesn’t feel too over the top for this movie.

But all in all, I have to say Ant-Man was pretty well done and very enjoyable. It was a bit long in the run time, nearly 2 hours, but at least they used their time wisely. If you’re looking for a great action movie, with some good humor, then Ant Man could be one to watch this summer.

If you have been following the progress of this movie online, then you’ll know that fans of one of the best superheroes in the Marvel universe were a little nervous about this film after seeing the first teaser trailer.

But now Marvel is bringing those fans back with this latest trailer. This trailer actually has some action in it. We finally have something to get excited about!

Oh, and did we mention the reveal of Yellowjacket? After seeing the latest trailer, Marvel fans should be sleeping well knowing that another great movie is coming their way.

The Full Trailer for ‘Ant-Man’ Has Been Released, Check Out Paul Rudd In Action!


We warned you a few days ago that the first ‘Ant-Man’ trailer would be released during the two-hour premiere of Marvel’s ABC miniseries, Agent Carter. Were you able to catch it? If not, don’t you worry! We have the full trailer for you at the bottom of this page.

As expected, this first trailer is really just another teaser for the film; however, there are a few laughs inside as the original Ant-Man, Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), tries to convince Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) to take over as the new Ant-Man. At one point, Lang asks, “Is it too late to change the name?”

Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas aren’t the only stars in this film. Evangeline Lilly and Corey Stoll both play an important role in the film, but you don’t see much of them in the first trailer. The movie isn’t scheduled to be released until July 17, so you can look forward to a second trailer coming out soon.

Check out the official Ant-Man movie synopsis and trailer down below…

“The next evolution of the Marvel Cinematic Universe brings a founding member of The Avengers to the big screen for the first time with Marvel Studios’ “Ant-Man” when master thief Scott Lang must embrace his inner-hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym, protect the secret behind his spectacular Ant-Man suit from a new generation of towering threats.”

Marvel Releases Human-Sized Teaser For The ‘Ant-Man’ Trailer (VIDEO)


I haven’t been teased this much since gym class in 3rd grade. Marvel decided to get clever the other day by releasing an “ant-sized” teaser for their upcoming Ant-Man trailer. Fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe weren’t exactly pleased with the tease. The comments on the video were mostly negative, but then again most comments on YouTube are negative.

In any event, Marvel decided to apologize to fans around the world by uploading the full-size version of the teaser to their YouTube channel. It’s our first real look at the film. We see our first look at Paul Rudd walking alongside a few police officers, which makes sense because his character (Scott Lang) has been arrested for petty crimes.

The video you see down below is just a teaser for the full trailer. Marvel has announced that the full trailer will be released tomorrow during the premiere of Agent Carter on ABC.

As we mentioned above, Paul Rudd plays the lead role in the film, but he had some impressive coworkers helping him out. Michael Douglas, Evangeline Lilly, Judy Greer and even rapper T.I. all play a role in the film.

Ant-Man is scheduled to hit theaters July 17, 2015.

It certainly hasn’t been an easy road for the creators of Ant-Man, but things are starting to look up. Production on Marvel’s next big hit finally started this week. Filming started in San Francisco, and now that production is back on track, they are wasting no time getting people excited for the film.

Disney and Marvel Studios released the first official still from the movie, which features Paul Rudd looking like he had a long night at the local Waffle House. As we all know, Rudd is playing the role of Scott Lang, the ex-con who eventually goes on to be the second Ant-Man.

Along with the first photo from the shoot, Marvel also announced that Judy Greer, John Slattery and rapper T.I. all joined the cast in undisclosed roles.

Check out the official Ant-Man synopsis:

“Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, con-man Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) must embrace his inner-hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), protect the secret behind his spectacular Ant-Man suit from a new generation of towering threats. Against seemingly insurmountable obstacles, Pym and Lang must plan and pull off a heist that will save the world.”

Look for the movie to hit a theater near you July 17, 2015.
