Vice Starring Christian Bale As Dick Cheney

Christian Bale has done a few things to get into character. He lost enough weight to become nothing but skin and bone in The Machinist. He bulked up for The Dark Knight trilogy. Now he will do something that is opposite all of that and become almost unrecognizable. Gain weight to become Vice President Dick Cheney.

A new trailer for Adam McKay‘s Vice has just been released by Annapurna Pictures, and it gives us a glimpse at another possible awards contender. Check out the trailer below.

Toni Erdmann (2016) Header Image

Back in May a German-Austrian dramedy titled Toni Erdmann premiered at the Cannes Film Festival. There, Sony Pictures Classics acquired the U.S. and Latin America rights. The movie went on to play numerous festivals, garnering much critical praise along the way, all leading up to it being nominated for an Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film this year.

One of the film’s many fans, as it turns out, is none other than Jack Nicholson. So much so, in fact, that Nicholson himself—who hasn’t appeared in a feature film role since 2010’s How Do You Know—reached out to Paramount Pictures chairman and CEO Brad Grey about the project. Grey immediately took the necessary steps to acquire the remake rights to Toni Erdmann, and now it’s been made official. Nicholson is set to star in his first title in seven years, with Kristen Wiig locked in to star as well.

Peyton Reed Confirms ‘Ant-Man and The Wasp’ Won’t Be A Heist Film

Ant-Man and the Wasp Won't Have Heist

Yesterday, Marvel’s Ant-Man was released on Blu-ray and DVD. The film was a sleeper hit, and its success led to a confirmation of a sequel, with director Peyton Reed returning to direct. Part of that fun was because Ant-Man was a heist film rooted in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Now it should be interesting to see where Scott Lang (Paul Rudd), Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly), and Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), and the rest of his crew will do in Ant-Man and the Wasp.

However, it appears that the team will not be pulling off another heist any time soon, as Reed as confirmed that the sequel will not be a heist film. Writers who worked on the original will also be returning for the sequel. More on the stories below.

Marvel's Ant-Man

Marvel’s Ant-Man
Blu-ray | 3D Blu-ray | DVD
DIRECTOR: Peyton Reed
WRITERS: Edgar Wright, Joe Cornish, Adam McKay, Paul Rudd
CAST: Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Corey Stoll, Michael Douglas, Michael Peña, Judy Greer, Tip “T.I.” Harris, David Dastmalchian, Bobby Cannavale
Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment
RELEASE DATE: December 8, 2015

Marvel’s Ant-Man takes a comedic page from its Marvel Cinematic Universe counterpart Guardians Of The Galaxy, and delivers a superhero story that’s appealing to all audiences, even those not interested in capes and cowls.

Paul Rudd stars as Scott Lang, a master thief who’s just finished a three-year stint in San Quentin prison. While his crime was more of the Robin Hood variety, his criminal record is making it very difficult for him to keep a job and make ends meet on the straight and narrow path. Motivated by his desire to be there for his young daughter’s life, Scott joins forces with former prison buddy Luis (Michael Peña) and his crew (Tip “T.I.” Harris, David Dastmalchian) for a sure-thing burglary job. Unbeknownst to Scott, the safe he’s cracking belongs to Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), the S.H.I.E.L.D. scientist who developed the shrinking technology that powers the Ant-Man suit.

Brad Pitt in The Big Short

Adam McKay (Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy) is no real stranger to taking on some serious social issues. His buddy cop comedy The Other Guys was just released after the financial crisis of the late 2000s. The film’s closing credits included animated infographics on the consequences of Ponzi schemes, financial fraud, and wealth inequality. But his new film, The Big Short, takes on the financial crisis in a very serious way.

Paramount Pictures has released a new trailer for The Big Short, starring Christian Bale, Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling, and Brad Pitt, just a few weeks before its limited theatrical release. Watch the trailer here below.

‘Marvel’s Ant-Man’: The Complete Geeks Of Doom Timeline

Ant-Man Header Image

What a long, strange trip it has been for Ant-Man, Marvel Studios’ latest entry in their constantly expanding cinematic universe. It had been in development for a decade before it went before the cameras, and by then the director who had been with the project since its inception had long departed due to the dreaded “creative differences.” This has probably been the most difficult baby for Marvel to birth since The Avengers, and when Ant-Man brings Marvel’s Phase Two line-up to a rousing conclusion this weekend, we’ll finally find out if the movie has proven to be worth the wait.

I decided to trace Ant-Man‘s obstacle-fraught journey from the pages of Marvel Comics to the big screen beginning when the visionary British filmmaker Edgar Wright first signed on to develop a live-action feature based on the character. From 2010 onward, the development will be recounted as it was covered by several writers here at Geeks of Doom over the years, myself included.
