Fresh off the record-breaking opening weekend of Avengers: Infinity War, Marvel Studios has released a brand new trailer for the upcoming next chapter in the Marvel Cinematic Universe which, confusingly enough, takes place in the aftermath of Captain America: Civil War but before the events of Infinity War.
Indeed, our latest look at Ant-Man and The Wasp has finally arrived and teases what’s next for Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) as he grapples with the consequences of his choices as both a superhero and a father. But when he’s confronted by Hope van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) and Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) with an urgent new mission, Scott must once again put on the suit and learn to fight alongside The Wasp as they work together to uncover secrets from their past.
Over the course of this trailer’s two-minute and sixteen-second runtime, it manages to squeeze in a lot of excellent footage, including some pint-sized action-packed sequences and a shot of an insanely large ant playing what appears to be an electronic drum kit. Oh, and we also get to see some hilarious banter between Rudd and Laurence Fishburne’s characters, which reminds me that it’s nice to see Fishburne having fun in a decent cinematic universe for a change (sorry, DC fans).
If you’re still reeling from Infinity War‘s rather heart-breaking ending, have no fear as the lightheartedness of Ant-Man and The Wasp will be here in just two months time on July 6. You can check out the newly released trailer for the film in the embedded player above.
Disney’s ‘Jungle Cruise’ movie will now set sail 9 months later than expected in July 2020
Hoping to mirror the same success the Pirates of the Caribbean movies has seen all these years, Disney is hoping to launch yet another ride-based movie franchise with Jungle Cruise, one of the studio’s next live-action adventures starring Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt.
While the film was originally set to be released one year from now on October 19, 2019, Johnson took to Twitter today to announce that the film has now been moved to July 24, 2020, which is a significantly big delay. So what’s the holdup?
IT’S OFFICIAL – JULY 24th, 2020.
Ladies and gentlemen and children of all ages.
My partner in crime, Emily Blunt and I, lovingly invite you to join us for THE ADVENTURE OF A LIFETIME.
All aboard…😈@DisneyStudios JUNGLE CRUISE

Well, at this point, we’re really not sure, but methinks this has to do with Disney vacating its previously announced July 31, 2020 release date for the Untitled Marvel Movie, which was probably either Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 or Black Panther 2.
I mean, a Jungle Cruise movie opening in a fall slot? It works. But you know what works even better? A summer slot. And with the Untitled Marvel Movie out of the way, that leaves plenty of room for Jungle Cruise to shine at the box office.
However, that’s just pure speculation on my part and the delay could have to do with something completely different, like Dwayne Johnson’s massively overbooked schedule or director Jaume Collet-Serra just needing more time in the editing room. Who knows at this point!
Tom Holland swings by ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ to show off new Spidey suit from ‘Far From Home’
Jimmy Kimmel has been taping his show in Brooklyn all week, so it would only make sense that our friendly neighborhood Spider-Man would swing on over from Queens for a quick visit to retrieve his mask from Kimmel sidekick Guillermo Rodriguez and show off his fancy new Spidey suit from Spider-Man: Far From Home.
Indeed, Tom Holland appeared on the show last night (not breaking character or accent for even a second) to reveal our best look yet at his costume in the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel, which is due out next summer, and it looks pretty damn good!
Frankly, I think it looks a lot like the one we saw in Avengers: Infinity War, just a little sleeker and obviously darker around parts of the upper and lower body, but it looks great nonetheless! The interaction between Guillermo and Tom, ahem, I mean Peter Parker, is really what makes this whole clip, though.
Towards the end of the clip, Kimmel asks if Far From Home takes place before the events of Infinity War because, well, we all know what happens at the end of that movie. But, not wanting to reveal any spoilers, Spidey insists he has to leave to stop Thanos from robbing a bank somewhere because “Thanos is poor.”
Spider-Man: Far From Home will hit theaters on July 5, 2018. You can check out the clip from Jimmy Kimmel Live below.
‘First Reformed’ and ‘The Favourite’ lead the nominations for the 2018 IFP Gotham Awards
The Independent Filmmaker Project announced today their nominees for the 28th annual IFP Gotham Awards, which are selected by a small group of film critics, journalists, festival programmers, and film curators each year, with writer-director Paul Schrader’s First Reformed unsurprisingly leading the pack with the most nominations.
In addition to a Best Feature nomination, the bleak religious drama also landed Schrader a Best Screenplay nod and star Ethan Hawke a Best Actor nod. Yorgos Lanthimos’ The Favourite also scored several nominations, including a Special Jury Award for Emma Stone, Rachel Weisz, and Olivia Colman for their ensemble performance in the period dramedy.
Ari Aster’s Hereditary was another favorite, picking up a Bingham Ray Breakthrough Director Award for Aster and a Best Actress nomination for Toni Collette and her magnificently unhinged performance. Similarly, Bo Burnham’s Eighth Grade also got a directing nod, while Elsie Fisher picked up a Breakthrough Actor nomination.
The 2018 Gotham Awards ceremony will be held on Monday, November 26 at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City. You can check out the complete list of nominations below.
