In 1978 John Carpenter and Debra Hill gave us one of the greatest indie movies of all time in Halloween. It has become a true classic, the theme music iconically representing the season, and the blank stare of the mask now synonymous with evil.
The story goes that on Halloween night, when he was only six, little Michael Myers killed his sister Judith with a butcher knife. He then spent the next 15 years institutionalized, and his parents died in a car crash, leaving behind his baby sister named Cynthia. At the age of 21, Michael escapes the hospital and returns home to murder the last remaining member of his family. The guy is thorough.

We haven’t heard too much film news from Marvel Studios lately besides constant rumors and discussions revolving around Captain America: Civil War. So when they announced even more movies to their upcoming slate of films it came with a feeling of “about damn time.”
They opened thier wave of announcements by first confirming we will be seeing an Ant-Man sequel in 2018. With the success of what most were predicting to be Marvel’s first flop, there was no doubt we would eventually see a sequel, but the announced title for the sequel is very interesting.

ABC put on a pretty awesome (yet albeit rushed and a bit too short for our tastes) Marvel Comics special. It gave newer fans of the comics/films/TV juggernaut a sixty-minute look into the humble beginnings and current-day run of Marvel. If you happened to stay until the very end of this quick documentary piece, you were lucky enough to see some exclusive scenes from two upcoming blockbuster films – 2015’s Ant-Man and Avengers: Age of Ultron. Take a peek at the video below to see some B-Roll footage from Marvel Studios’ next Hollywood projects.
Oh and if you’re pretty clueless on the whole plot line behind Ant-Man, check out the official synopsis below (Ant-Man is hitting theaters on July 17, 2015):
The next evolution of the Marvel Cinematic Universe brings a founding member of The Avengers to the big screen for the first time Marvel Studios’ Ant-Man. Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, 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. Against seemingly insurmountable obstacles, Pym and Lang must plan and pull off a heist that will save the world.
Besides the short scenes from those two upcoming films, Marvel and ABC made sure to give Agent Carter fans a special sneak peek at the show. Pay close attention to some of the other faces that show up. You’ll get your first look at Dominic Cooper as Howard Stark in TV and Jarvis himself.
And with our last bit of Marvel news, we’re going to revert to Netflix’s Daredevil web series. Executive producer Steven DeKnight took to his Twitter page to have a quick Q&A session with his followers. And of course, everyone inquired about Marvel’s blind superhero. Well we know one thing, folks – Bullseye won’t be showing up on the show…

It is no secret that I am a huge Tina Fey fan. If I had a patronus, it would be either Julie Andrews or Tina Fey without a doubt. I like to keep up with most former SNL cast members (Rob Schneider being the exception, sorry Rob), but Tina is at the top of my list.

Judd Apatow is one of those strange curiosities in the filmmaking industry. He made his name blending bro-humor, stoner comedy and genuine emotional earnestness with the 1-2 knockout punch of 40 Year Old Virgin and Knocked Up, and has since put himself on the map as the go to guy for a successful mainstream comedy. Then as his career continued, he started putting in more of the earnest emotional stuff back into his work, which isn’t anything new for him at all. Longtime Apatow fans will be familiar with his TV projects, Freaks And Geeks being the most notable for being a perfect encapsulation of a generation’s awkward teen years, that had a timeless relatability to it despite being set in the 80’s.

After literally almost 10 years of waiting, and an almost monthly debacle between Ferrell/McKay and studios, Anchorman 2 has released its first teaser trailer. With a simple set-up and hilarious banter between the Channel 4 News Team, Anchorman 2 has already solidified its status as one of the funniest films of 2013. In this teaser, our favorite group of the bumbling idiots that give San Diego its news basically just talk about how awesome it’s going to be once Anchorman 2 comes out.
