Sebastian Stan Talks About Ant-Man Post-Credit Scene And Civil War

Spoiler Alert: We're going to talk about the post credit scene in Marvel's Ant-Man, so if you haven't seen it yet, you still have time to look away.


            One of the most anticipated films of 2016 is Marvel's start of their Phase 3 of films, which starts with Captain America: Civil War. Now if you've seen the post-credits scene from Ant-Man, you'll know that there has been some introduction to what we might expect to see in the 2016 movie. The Civil Warstory is based on the comics written by Mark Millar and Steve McNiven. In it we see Tony Stark/Iron Man and Steve Rogers/Captain America on opposite side as the U.S. government plans to have a registration for heroes, and those who don't will be captured and taken to prison.


            This isn't just the story that's getting to be touched upon in Civil War, since there's still the fact that Captain America is looking for the brainwashed Bucky. We don't know what Bucky's storyline will lead to in the overall plot of the film, but the post credits scene gives us a peek at what we should expect.

            In the post credits, we see the Winter Soldier, aka Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan), in a warehouse with his arm trapped in some kind of vise. Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) and Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie) discuss their next move, stating that they can't call Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) because of the "Accords" (which we still don't know of). With no other choice, Sam Wilson tells Steve "I know a guy", referring to Ant-Man (Paul Rudd), and then we cut to  “Ant-Man will return.”


            There's lots of theories online on what was really going on in the scene. Some think Cap and Falcon has finally found Bucky and trapped him in. Well Sebastian Stan might have a clue as to what happened, as while away from the filming location he told Buzzfeed recently :


I think [what Bucky was caught in was] more of a vise. But it would never happen at his own hand, by his own doing. In terms of that scene in Ant-Man, I’ve seen some of the ideas people have about it and I would just say that whatever you’re seeing on the surface, it’s not as obvious as that. There might be a whole lot more to the scene. I would say someone would probably want to put him in a vise.


            Apparently Bucky didn't intentionally trap himself in the vise. But the question is, who would want to trap Bucky in there? Is it by an active Hydra member still alive? Are they trying to reactivate him?


            As for Ant-Man's involvement in the case, it seems like they will make use of his shrinking powers to free Bucky from the huge device. It looks like Ant-Man is yet to be involved in the Civil War going on, so we got that to look forward to.


            Which ever the case may be, it looks like The Winter Soldier will be playing a huge part in the Civil War. The Russo brothers are currently shooting the film, with Atlanta, Georgia serving as the filming location. We'll just have to wait and see what comes out of it when Captain America: Civil War opens to theaters on May 6th, 2016.

A Stoner Turns to Sleeper Agent in the Movie “American Ultra”


What if one day, you thought you’re just a simple guy with a mediocre job as a clerk store in a small town? Then in the blink of an eye you will be a super skilled sleeper agent.

This became a conflict with Adrian Yates, played by Topher Grace, who seems the head of the sleeper agent program. Now, Mike and his girlfriend need to save their lives from being wasted.


After six years Eisenberg and Stewart starred “Adventure land” they are again team up in action-comedy with love story in their new movie “American Ultra”. In one of the interview with Stewart she said about: the movie, “glorified stoner movie, it is like your best stoner buddy turns to CIA agent or somebody who could do some incredible thing… that stoner buddy, I mean Jesse, can conquer the world.”; about Jesse, “I feel very comfortable with him that I can make a million mistakes… he’s so hilarious and so smart… He is awesome to work with.” and to the Director, “Lima is an incredibly detailed oriented specific director, do a lot of takes, little things matters to him, I love that… He approaches every single scene… I could rely on him no matter what.


The movie is directed by successful movie behind the “Project X”, Nima Nourizadeh and written by Max Landis. Starring Jesse Eisenberg, Kristen Stewart, Topher Grace, Connie Britton, Walton Goggins, John Leguizamo, Bill Pullman and Tony Hale. Filming was located at New Orleans area.

'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' Crew on Harrison Ford’s Return As Han Solo


Harrison Ford has been known through the years to have a different view towards his role as the iconic Han Solo. He once called the character “dumb as a stump” in a 2008 interview. Even before the first trilogy's ending, it was thought that he didn't want to return for another sequel. But now things seem to have turned around, as Harrison Ford is finally set to reprise his role as the fan-favorite smuggler for the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens. And based from the reaction of the fans for the trailer, his appearance will be a moment that everyone will never forget.

                Entertainment Weekly spoke with The Force Awakens crew members about Ford's return to Pinewood studios, the filming location of the first trilogy, and talked about what finally convinced the actor to sign on for the project:

I think what really got him excited was when he read the first draft, and he saw where we were going and what we were doing. He was immediately on board, and then he sat down and had a great conversation with J.J. and went through, in detail, what we were thinking about doing. And then, you know, Harrison — and I’ve always found this over the years with the Indiana Jones films we’ve all done together — he’s incredibly collaborative when it comes to story and developing his character, and really engaged in the process. And he was every bit that on this film.”

                This should be exciting news to fans, knowing that their beloved Star Wars franchise is in good hands. J.J. Abrams has shown even way before he was on Star Trek that he is a big fan of the Star Wars franchise so it's not a surprise that he would want to handle it with as much care as possible. Having convinced Harrison Ford to return is a good sign that Abrams is deeply involved in the project and is willing to do the movie justice.

                 Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy also told EW about Ford's first day on the set, stating that it was a special moment for everyone in the crew that day:

The minute Harrison and Chewie walked on board the Millennium Falcon — that was incredible. Every single person on the set was stunned. I remember turning around, and there must have been 200 people gathered behind me — completely quiet. I didn’t even know they were there. The whole crew had stopped working, staring at the monitor, because it was so iconic.

                For a while, Harrison Ford had to take a break due to an accident on the filming location that left Ford with a broken leg. Even so, this didn't stop him from giving it his all. Abrams and screenwriter Lawrence Kasdan initially thought that they had to rewrite some of Ford's scenes, but soon realized that it wouldn't be necessary.

It wasn’t something that we knew for a little while. When it became clear that he was going to be just fine, we realized we didn’t need to change [the script] at all. In fact, there are some places where he’s more active than he was prior to the accident. As you’ll see in the movie, he is running and doing more physical activity in this movie than I think anyone who knows he was injured would expect. Nothing was adjusted or lessened because of that accident. Even for Harrison, who is famously resilient and strong, he blew everyone’s minds.


                From what we've heard with the crew, it looks like the man who was cynical about being in Star Wars is now dedicated to give the audiences a great film and an exciting new trilogy to look forward to. Unfortunately, we'll have to wait a few more months before the first film premieres.

                Star Wars: The Force Awakens includes Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, AnthonyDaniels, Peter Mayhew and more. The movie is set to debut in theaters on December 18th 2015.

Zach Galifianakis Will Voice The Joker In 'Lego Batman'


After the success of last year's The Lego movie (earning $468 million worldwide), of course Warner Bros. would want to develop a sequel as soon as possible. But before The Lego Movie 2 comes out to theaters in 2018, the studio is planning to expand their own cinematic universe involving the Lego characters seen in the film. While we wait for the sequel and the Lego Ninjago set for a 2017 release, audiences will be introduced with the first Lego spinoff, 'Lego Batman'. And what's a Batman movie without his archenemy - the Joker?

                The Hollywood Reporter tells us that Zach Galifianakis is in final negotiations to voice the Joker in Lego Batman, written by author-screenwriter SethGrahame-Smith (Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter) and directed by Chris McKay. Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, the directors of The Lego Movie, will be producing the spinoff while they continue work on the sequel.


                Galifianakis just came from the filming location of Fox's comedy movie 'Keeping Up With The Joneses' starring Jon Hamm and Gal Gadot. He is also set to appear next year in FX's TV show 'Baskets'. The actor also starred in Relativity's ensemble comedy 'Masterminds' that was supposed to be released this fall, but it was recently postponed after the production company filed for bankruptcy. Despite starring in live-action films, the actor is no stranger to animation voice work, having voiced characters in DreamWorks Animation's 'Puss in Boots', 'The Simpsons', and 'Bob's Burgers'. Galifianakis also appeared in a supporting role in the Oscar-winning film, 'Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)'.


                He will be joined by comedian WIll Arnett for the Lego Movie spinoff, who is reprising his role as Batman. Michael Cera is also joining the cast to voice Batman's sidekick, Robin. Although the Joker seems to be the main villain of the film, Warner Bros. is expected to reveal the rest of the cast and villains of the movie the closer we get to its release date.
                The Lego Batman video games has had different voice actors to play the Joker, with each giving their own portrayal of the Clown Prince of Crime. It's interesting to see what Galifianakis will bring to the table, and considering its a comedy, expect to see a more comedic take on the Joker compared to the ones we see in the live-action films.


                Speaking of live-action, another Joker is set to appear in the big-screen. Jared Leto is taking on the role of Joker in David Ayer's Suicide Squad, which we will see before Lego Batman opens to theaters. Production for the film continues in the Toronto filming location.


                Lego Batman debuts to theaters on February 10th, 2017, followed by Lego Ninjago in September 22nd and The Lego Movie 2 on May 18th, 2017.

Captain America: Civil War' Set Photos Reveal Black Panther's Costume


                The Phase 3 of Marvel's Cinematic Universe is set to start next year, and leading the next phase is Anthony and Joe Russo's follow up to the Captain America: Winter Soldier storyline. Their upcoming film Captain America: Civil War will put Steven Rogers/Captain America (Chris Evans) and Tony Stark/Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) on the opposite sides of the law. But despite the much awaited face-off between the two heroes, fans are also eager to see the introduction of Tom Holland as Peter Parker/Spider-Man and Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa/Black Panther in the MCU.
                While on the Berlin, Germanyfilming location, we finally get to see Black Panther in action wearing his own costume. Chadwick Boseman was previously seen on set, but these photos by Comic Book Movie (link to marks the first appearance of the Black Panther costume. In the photos posted, we see Black Panther in the filming location (played by a stunt double) together with a stunt double for the Winter Soldier.

                The photos themselves don't provide more info about that particular scene. We don't know yet if they are fighting or chasing each other at this moment. However, we have heard from Kevin Feige that T’Challa will not be a part of the Civil War, but instead going after Bucky for some reason. This might be the reason why we see Black Panther and Winter Soldier together in this scene. In the images, it's also revealed that Captain America is on their tail, with a stunt double racing along a ledge of a building.

                Some fans might find the suit a little unappealing for now, but it should be noted that this is just a photo from the set and it will look far better during post-production. And from the looks of it, the suit does fare quite a resemblance with the concept art previously released by Marvel which was well received by a lot of fans.




Black Panther is the king of the fictional country of Wakanda, which was recently mentioned in Avengers: Age of Ultron as the home of vibranium. That metal was featured heavily when Ultron used it to form the Vision's body. Knowing that Black Panther comes from Wakanda, it wouldn't be much of a stretch to say that vibranium will be a part of his suit. Whether it's a vibranium armor to protect him from bullets or vibranium claws that can cut through anything, the highly valuable metal is sure to play a role in the film.




                With all this characters in play during the film, some are wondering how the Russo brothers will handle the load. But knowing their track record with superhero films, expect this one to be full of action and thrilling one-on-one combat. The only thing to wonder about right now is the story and how all these characters will come together. We'll just have to wait and see next year when Captain America: Civil War opens to theaters on May 6th, 2016.

5 Short Films By Famous Directors That Will Inspire You To Make Your Own

It's often hard to get started in filmmaking when there's plenty of short films found in the internet right now, especially since the dawn of video streaming sites. How can someone get noticed when there are thousands of short films online? This reasoning leads some to give up on their dream of being a filmmaker and decide to pursue other work.

Although it truly is hard to get into the spotlight, you should never stop making short films for yourself and your friends. Making films as short as 3 minutes might seem like a small task, but this gives you more practice and experience in filmmaking rather than just sitting in your butt watching films. Well known filmmakers didn't just start making full length feature films immediately and got famous. They started with short films that might be considered bad by some, but sometimes these works get noticed by the right people and it kick-starts their career. Here are some of the short films by famous directors that might inspire you to make your own.

Neill Blomkamp, 'Alive in Joburg' (2004) 



Blomkamp started out as a visual effects artist in South Africa with a history in TV advertisements and music videos. In 2005, he made a short named Alive in Joburg. Peter Jackson came upon his work and decided to bring him to work for the visual effects company that Jackson runs in New Zealand. And when Blomkamp's work on the Halo film version fell through, Jackson suggested that Blomkamp develop his short into a feature film. The film's title was changed to District 9 and used the same filming location as the short film. It went on to gross more than $200 million while also earning four Academy Award nominations.

John Lasseter, 'Luxo Jr.' (1986) 



Back in 1986, Steve Jobs bought Lucasfilm Computer Graphic Group from George Lucas and renamed the company Pixar. After the purchase, he set one of his animator, John Lasseter, to work on an animated short film to showcase their company's talents. Luxo Jr., a playful little lamp, was the product of their work. The short became the first 3D film to benominated for an Oscar, and made the lamp Pixar's corporate 'mascot'. Lasseter later went on to direct animated films such as Toy Story, A Bug' Life, and Cars among others, eventually rising to the top as Pixar's chief creative officer.

Tim Burton, 'Frankenweenie' (1984) 



Before the animated film Frankenweenie came out to theaters in 2012, it was originally a short film by director Tim Burton created in 1984. The short film was supposed to precede the premiere of the 1984 Pinocchio in theaters, but Disney thought it had a dark tone that wasn't fit for a family friendly film so the studio fired him. As luck would have it, Stephen King had seen Burton's short and recommended him to Paul Reubens, who was at that time searching for a director for his film idea. Reubens and Burton met shortly after and offered him his first debut as the director of 'Pee-Wee's Big Adventure'.

George Lucas, 'Electronic Labyrinth THX 1138 4EB' (1967) 



This short was made by George Lucas back when he was a film student at the University of Southern California in 1967. It tells a story of a group of people living in a dystopic world underground. The film won first prize in the dramatic films category at the 3rd National Student Film Festival. Because of the praise that the short received, Lucas' friend and classmate Francis Ford Coppola decided to fund the feature film version when he founded his production company American Zoetrope in 1971. The feature version unfortunately bombed at the box office, but it was well received by the critics that Lucas was set to direct his next films titled 'American Graffiti' and 'Star Wars'.

Wes Anderson, 'Bottle Rocket' (1994) 




Bottle Rocket is one of the short films that showcased Wes Anderson's skill as a director. In 1992, Anderson met Owen Wilson in a playwriting class. The two wrote a script together, turned it to a film starring Wilson as one of the would-be criminals and shot it in a local filming location. It didn't fare well in the 1994 Sundance Film Festival, but Bottle Rocket gained the attention of producer James Brooks, who funded the duo's feature film debut based on the short. The film quickly gained cult status among critics and movie-goers, with Martin Scorsese naming the film one of his 10 favorite movies of the decade.

'Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice' Wonder Woman Fights Doomsday?


Before she gets her own movie in 2017, Wonder Woman will first make her debut on the big screen with Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. In the movie, we will finally see the long awaited battle between two of the most iconic heroes of our time. But besides the face-off of the titular heroes, fans are also excited for the introduction of the DC Extended Universe and to see everyone's favorite superheroine Wonder Woman suiting up in her Amazonian armor to fight . . .Doomsday?


After the comic-con trailer was released, the internet has been full of rumors as to why she was  wearing her armor and wielding a sword to battle. Some say she was going to be some sort of referee between Superman and Batman who we also see in the trailer duking it out. While it is highly unlikely for that to happen, another rumor seems to be the most possible explanation as of now.

Heroic Hollywood has been constantly reporting everything related to the DC movie, and according to them Wonder Woman will have a one-on-one showdown with Superman's strongest enemy - Doomsday. Now this is all rumor for now, but if you don't want to be spoiled any further, you might want to turn back now.

Here is the detailed fight between Wonder Woman and Doomsday, as described by El Mayimbe of HH:

            “During the fight with Doomsday, Wonder Woman draws that awesome sword of hers, swings it at Doomsday and manages to chop off the hand of the beast! Kind of reminds me when I was a kid and saw Perseus cut off Calibos’ hand in Clash of The Titans. Wonder Woman is badass and got skills but don’t count Doomsday out! He is still in the fight! Complications ensue because a BONE BLADE grows back where Doomsday’s hand used to be! In screenwriting that’s called a reversal. Now Doomsday got a blade of his own.What happens next? Find out when Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice drops in theaters



Even before they started shooting at the filming location, it was rumored that Doomsday will appear in some manner during the film. This also ties into Man of Steel villain, General Zod (Michael Shannon), whose body is seen in the Dawn of Justice trailer. Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) will apparently experiment with Zod's corpse to create a monster that's as powerful as Superman. Whether it's Doomsday or not, we'll have to wait and see. Zack Snyder has been keeping production under wraps with barely a photo from the various filming locations being released. Now that filming has finished, everything is up for speculation.

Hansel And Gretel: Witch Hunters 2 Gets Award Winning Director

         


          When Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters starring Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton came out in 2013, everyone thought it would be just a usual fairy-tail movie featuring the siblings with an adult twist that would barely make a mark in the cinemas. But everyone was surprised when it opened to theaters in March and became a blockbuster hit, more than tripling its $50 million budget and earning $220 million worldwide.


            Because of the success that it gained with a such a low budget (for blockbuster standards), of course Hollywood won't pass up the opportunity to make another one. Two months after the first film's release, there were news of a sequel being on development. Tommy Wirkola wrote the script for the previous film and was set to return, with a script apparently completed in November, but he eventually left the project stating that "it's up to them now" (referring to Paramount). Everyone thought that was it for the sequel, until now.

            Deadline reports that the studio finally has a director attached for Hansel and Gretel sequel. The Award winning commercial director Bruno Aveillan will be helming the movie which will be his first ever feature film debut. But whether they will use Tommy Wirkla's screenplay or do something else remains to be seen.


            Bruno Aveillan is a world renowned director, having worked on experimental short films and numerous commercials and short stories for big companies like Coca-Cola, Samsung, Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Nike and more. He is known to bring a certain experimental and artistic aesthetic for these brands. One of his short films even won 40 awards.

            With this kind of background directing the film, expect the sequel to have extremely stunning visuals and an artistic use of visual effects for what is ultimately an adult fairy-tale inspired action movie. if you're not convinced, you can check out Aveillan's Vimeo page (https://vimeo.com/album/2147769) to get a feel of his visual style.


            We don't know if Jeremy Renner or Gemma Arterton will be returning on the filming location, but Deadline does say that “Aveillan will continue the adventures of the witch-hunting siblings played by Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton,” so this means the two leads will probably be back. But still, it remains to be seen until Paramount studios confirm that the actors have officially signed on for the sequel. With the star power of Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton's background, we doubt Paramount would choose to recast the roles unless they want to make the film in a lower budget than the first.

            On top of that, there is also no update about the production date for neither the film nor where the filminglocation will be. What we do know however is that Will Ferrell, Adam McKay and Kevin Messick will produce via Gary Sanchez Productions with Beau Flynn returning for FlynnPictureCo. 

Jim Parrack Will Play Johnny Frost In DC's Suicide Squad



      David Ayer's Suicide Squad features a star studded cast, starring Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Cara Delevingne, Viola Davis, Jai Courtney, Joel Kinnaman, Jay Fernandez, Karen Fukuhara, Adwale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, and of course the Joker himself Jared Leto. Although most of the cast's roles were revealed during subsequent photos from the filming location and ones that David Ayer himself released, there was one actor whose role remained under wraps for most of the time during production.


True Blood star Jim Parrack was one of the actors revealed during the first photos of the cast, but his role wasn't announced together with the others. There were rumors early on that he would play DeathStroke, a well known Batman villain who has since faced off with the entire Justice League in the comics. Now those rumors are put to rest after a recent photo was released by one of his co-stars.

            End of Watch actress CorinaCalderon, who has a small role in Suicide Squad, while on her way to the filming location posted a photo in Instagram that has since been deleted (but screen-capped by Heroic Hollywood). It reveals that her co-star Parrack is playing Johnny Frost, one of Joker's most prominent henchman. The post's caption says: “All #HappyCamper on my way to set again, going earlier than my #CallTime just to be there and watch my boy Jim Parrack playing #JonnyFrost do his Thang #SuicideSquad

Now this doesn't fully confirm that he is indeed Johnny Frost, but considering it was posted by one of the actors from the film and the photo was deleted afterwards, it does seem to be quite true. This does correlate with the rumors a month ago from The Wrap reporter Jeff Sneider that according to his sources, Jim Parrack is indeed playing Johnny Frost.

            In the comics, Johnny Frost is a low-level street criminal who turned into Joker's henchman after the clown prince of crime noticed his skills. He appeared in the 2006 graphic novel by Brian Azzarello and Lee Bermejo simply titled "Joker", which sounds like one of the influences for David Ayer's film. The comic featured a darker take on the famous villain, so it's not a surprise if Ayer would want to take some inspiration from the novel.

            It's exciting to see what Parrack' character will bring to the table, with a big ensemble already filling the screen, it's still a wonder if Johnny Frost will be a big part in the film or simply appear in several scenes. We'll find out soon when Suicide Squad arrives to theaters on August 5th, 2016.
