‘Ant-Man’ actors are massive fans of the Marvel Universe
‘The Chi’ star Jason Mitchell: ‘I’m a 17-layer cake’
LOS ANGELES Morgan Freemans lifetime achievement tribute from the Screen Actors Guild last month was all the more remarkable when you consider the 80-year-old legends big-screen breakthrough didnt come until he played an intimidating pimp in Street Smart at age 50.
Only real super heroes can weaponize a Hello Kitty PEZ dispenser.
That lesson — and others — is learned in the first trailer for Marvel's "Ant-Man and the Wasp," which landed on YouTube on Tuesday morning.
Paul Rudd is back shrinking it up as the mini hero, this time with Evangeline Lilly at his side as the Wasp (aka Hope van Dyne). Michael Douglas returns as Dr. Hank Pym.
We find Rudd's Scott Lang kinda ticked that the Wasp was given wings. And blasters.

Carell, Fishburne remember ‘The Last Detail’
Review: Strong cast, strong views raise ‘Last Flag’
Steve Carell, Bryan Cranston and Laurence Fishburne are solid as Vietnam vets on a mission in Richard Linklater's latest
A road trip becomes a soul-baring journey for three Vietnam veterans in Richard Linklater's timely, telling comic-drama "Last Flag Flying."
'Last Flag Flying' at half-staff (review)
CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Production notes for "Last Flag Flying" say that it is a sequel to the 1973 film "The Last Detail," directed by Hal Ashby and starring Jack Nicholson and Randy Quaid. Both were based on novels by Darryl Ponicsan, who co-wrote the "Last Flag" script with director Richard Linklater.
Does it matter that a film is a sequel to a movie that is 44 years old and most audiences won't remember anyway? Not really. It hardly bears mentioning.
Richard Linklater has long had an interest in the travails of young suburban men lurching through life's changes.
From "Slacker" to "Dazed and Confused," "Boyhood" to "Everybody Wants Some," he has been their chronicler, if not their cheerleader.
In “Last Flag Flying,” Steve Carell, Bryan Cranston and Laurence Fishburne play old friends who come together in the face of tragedy.
When Larry “Doc” Shepherd (Carell) learns his son was killed while serving overseas, he enlists the help of his estranged Vietnam friends to help him retrieve his son’s body and take it back to his home for burial.
“I think the honesty of the storytelling is what first drew me to it,” Cranston told CNN.

Tickets are now on sale for the 26th Philadelphia Film Festival, taking place Oct. 18-29 on four theater screens in Center City.

Do you know difference between “real” Black Republicans and sellouts?
One of my favorite movies of all-time is “Deep Cover,” starring Laurence Fishburne. The movie debuted in 1992. Fishburne plays Russell Stevens Jr., an undercover Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) agent. During his initial interview with the DEA, Fishburne’s character was asked: “So, Officer Stevens, tell me, do you know the difference between a Black man and a n–ger?”
Fishburne’s reply was epic: “The n–ger’s the one that would even answer that question.”

The 41-year-old actress, who is to star in 'Public Schooled', has just signed up to reprise her role of Maggie Lang in the Marvel and Disney sequel.
