    Michael Douglas was all set to be a part of his first big comic book movie with Ant-Man. Sure, he’s still a part of the production. But he is clearly upset over the Edgar Wright exit from the project.

    Michael Douglas Picture 1

    “He’s a wonderful talent. It was very disappointing, yeah. It was a big disappointment and more so for him because he had a lot of years invested and he was really the one initially who got them to even consider it, you know, the screenplay that he wrote,” Douglas said in a round table while talking about his movie And So It Goes.

    “I’m not the producer on it and I’m an actor for hire, and Marvel certainly has a pretty amazing track record, rightly or wrongly. So I think it just was that kind of combination where although they like the idea of the individual and somebody with Edgar’s individual spirit and everything, maybe it just collided with an operation. I think they’re all on relatively decent terms.”

    And then he gave us some great news: looks like Ant-Man will be joining Mark Ruffalo and Avengers: Age of Ultron at Comic-Con for Marvel. 

    “Yeah! I’m going to Comic-Con,” Douglas proudly stated. He’s even bringing his son!

    “I promised I’m taking him out of camp. But we gotta be back here. I’ve gotta give a cancer speech on Sunday morning. Marvel’s on Saturday night. So we’re gonna fly all night back and drop him at camp like at 5:30, 6 in the morning in the Adirondacks, and come down and talk to 2,000 head and neck surgeons.”

    But, then the next month, he’ll be busy with Ant-Man. “August, yeah. Yeah, I’m gonna go do Ant-Man in August in Atlanta.”

    Bad Robot, J.J. Abrams’ production company, took to its Twitter account and posted the below photo of an IMAX camera panning the Abu Dhabi desert, which of course we know will double as Tatooine in Star Wars: Episode VII! The only comment posted was... @bestformatever, of course referring to IMAX.

    It’s our first glance at Tatooine, which fans know is the home of Luke Skywalker (and also his father Anakin). For George Lucas, it was Morocco that doubled as the home planet, but Abrams found the Abu Dhabi filming locations more suitable. And with the shoot utilizing IMAX cameras, we have a feeling it will look spectacular.

    Filming is underway for Star Wars: Episode VII as the production now heads to London. And yes, there will be a two week break soon while Harrison Ford recovers from a broken leg.

    This picture comes just days after the announcement of two new actors joining the series, Crystal Clarke and Pip Anderson.

    Look for Star Wars: Episode VII in theaters December 18, 2015. And is it us, or is this the most anticipated movie in, like, thirty years?!

    Ethan Hawke has had some incredible experiences with writer-director Richard Linklater over the years, most recently with the Oscar-nominated Before Midnight. But none of that could compare with the incredible cinematic journey he took with Linklater making Boyhood. “It’s just so fun to tell a real story about a real family,” Hawke told Movie Fanatic.

    Boyhood Stars Ellar Coltrane Ethan Hawke

    As teased in the Boyhoodtrailer, the film is a story about a boy, played by Ellar Coltrane, and his life from eight to 18. And he’s played by Coltrane through the whole journey which means, yes, Linklater and his cast filmed this movie over an astonishing 12 years.

    “I mean, so much of the problem with most movies is they create a false narrative. It has a beginning, middle and end that all takes place over six months. But our lives never feel like that.”

    Hawke says that the beauty of life is that there is so much more to it than what can be captured in that type of narrative. And Boyhood allowed Linklater and his cast to explore the nuances of life that other film projects would miss. “We have moments of grace or moments when we feel something deeply but it is because of 90 million other things that happen before it, not just that moment,” Hawke said.

    “I found it’s so enjoyable to tell a story without any lies in it like that. Time is so much a part of what makes you close to people. So we got to do that with each other, and we got to do that with the audience. The audience starts to believe these characters because they are watching them experience time with each other.”

    The thing about Boyhood too is that at any point in the 12-year process, the film could have been derailed. Yet, the opposite happened. “It gained momentum the more we were in it,” Hawke admitted.

    “Knowing Rick, I didn’t have any fear we wouldn’t finish it. It could become more problematic. Jonathan Sehring at IFC really believed in this project and was there supporting. He could have gotten fired! That happens to these executives.”

    We all know that actors can be vein, but what was it like for Hawke to see himself literally age over 12 years while watching the finished product of Boyhood? “When the movie started I had this feeling of like, man, I still look good,” Hawke said and laughed. “And then I’m like oohhh (makes downward spiral sound).”

    For this movie star, age is about experience and living life and it's nothing to shy away from.

    “It’s fun. Everybody acts like (age) is just some kind of evil thing. Everybody keeps talking about it as if it’s not happening all the time to everyone. We had freaked out about it, but it’s just the reality and it always is," Hawke said.

    "The second you buy a car it’s a used car. That’s the way we are, man. This machine is in action. I tried to be really proud of it. I don’t know why we support this idea that the best time of your life is when your skin is great because it is one time of your life!”

    Overall, Hawke knows that a production like this is once in a lifetime. “We got so lucky,” he said. And a large portion of that had to do with the casting of Ellar and Linklater’s daughter to play his sister Lorelei. “We could have never predicted that they would contribute on the level that they both did.”

    The first trailer for the Ridley Scott directed biblical epic Exodus: Gods and Kings has landed and between its haunting music and story of Moses that we all think we know, this thing could serious rock when it lands in theaters December 12.

    Christian Bale is Moses, a man who was adopted into upper society of Egypt and became great friends and almost brothers with Ramses (Joel Edgerton).

    Upon learning his true fate (he's Jewish) and seeing how the Egyptians have made Jews slaves, Moses has a change of heart and with God on his side, launches a series of plagues on Egypt that paralyze the nation and brings them to their knees. 

    We've seen The Ten Commandments and knowing the budget, technology and acting talent (Aaron Paul and Sigourney Weaver also star), we're wondering if Exodus: Gods and Kings could replace it as the Moses story. Now, is that sacrilege?  

    Check out Scott's most recent work and watch Prometheus online.

    Disney has hired writer Ehren Kruger (Transformers: Age of Extinction) to write a screenplay for a planned live action remake of Dumbo.

    Dumbo Photo

    After the success of Maleficent and its bringing the Sleeping Beauty villain story to life, the Mouse House is busy looking at bringing other beloved characters to the big screen and make them live and breathe.

    We recently reported that Bill Condon had been hired to direct a live action Beauty and the Beast, and the news of the Dumbo live action flick is hardly a surprise in terms of a Disney movie getting the real life treatment.

    But, in many ways, we are a little shocked at the choice. Of all the Disney films to bring to live action (check out our suggestions in the slideshow below), Dumbo seems like quite a challenge.

    I mean, it’s a flying elephant! Sure CG has come a long way, but this will be one enormous challenge to capture that aspect along with the emotional power that the original had when it arrived in 1941.

    Stay tuned for more and enjoy our suggestions for which other Disney movies need the live action treatment!

    With its sweeping and epic scope and inspirational story for little girls (and boys) everywhere, Mulan is custom fit for a live action leap.

    Yesterday we reported on the arrival of a new short Harry Potter story penned by J.K. Rowling that updates the world on what Harry and his friends are up to since the close of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

    Daniel Radcliffe What If

    The man himself, Daniel Radcliffe, was at the Television Critics Association's semi-annual event talking about his work on A Young Doctor’s Notebook and Other Stories yesterday and there was no way the press would let the man who was the Boy Who Lived go, without asking him about the Rowling short tale.

    The question came up whether Radcliffe would ever consider reprising his role. Given the framework that Rowling has given us in the short story, we can see a future for Potter. Can Radcliffe?

    “I don’t know. My inclination is to say no,” Radcliffe said.

    “It’s not even a hypothetical, at the moment, really. What she’s written, I haven’t read it yet. I am going to read it. But it is, as I understand, a very, very short piece that I’m not sure is, of itself, worthy of an adaptation to film. I don’t know. He’s at least 12 years older than I am now, so I don’t think I’ll have to worry about that for a long time, I’m hoping.”

    Check out how it all began and watch Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone online and it's easy to see why we're all so gaga about Harry.

    The Hundred-Foot Journey stars Helen Mirren as the head of a famous French bistro in the South of France that is doing fantastically. Then, the Kadam family moves to the area from their native India and opens up an Indian restaurant across the street.

    The Maison Mumbai challenges Mirren’s Le Saule Pleureur, even with its Michelin-starred pedigree, and its head is none too happy, as teased in The Hundred-Foot Journey trailer.  

    The film is based on the book by Richard C. Morais and arrives from an esteemed filmmaking team to say the least. Lasse Hallstrom is your director, and Steven Spielberg and Oprah Winfrey are your producers. The trio participated in a video featurette that takes us further into The Hundred-Foot Journey and delves deeper into a movie that is about love of food and so much more.

    We’re thrilled to see them part of the team, and we have to admit that Mel Gibson looks pretty bad-ass as our villain, Conrad Stonebanks, the man who co-founded the Expendables with Sylvester Stallone’s Barney.

    As you get ready to head into theaters this weekend to witness Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, we found 11 fun facts about the first film in this prequel series to the legendary franchise that should make the experience all the more fascinating.

    As we stated in our theatrical Rise of the Planet of the Apes review, the James Franco-starring film truly got it right in imagining a world before the Planet of the Apes movies that began in the '60s starring Charlton Heston.

    But, there is so much that went on behind the scenes and elements to Rise of the Planet of the Apes that you might not have known that not only show how brilliant filmmakers were in creating that instant classic, but also the reverence and knowledge they had about the franchise that came before.

    Watch Rise of the Planet of the Apes online and get ready for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, and then click through and discover 11 fun facts about Rise of the Planet of the Apes that are sure to enlighten and entertain.

    Apes' First Word
    The first word spoken by an ape in Rise of the Planet of the Apes is "no." This is a nod to the past films where it is used in Escape from the Planet of the Apes (1971), Conquest of the Planet of the Apes (1972) and Battle for the Planet of the Apes (1973).

    The first clip from the thriller Lucy has arrived and it features Scarlett Johansson kicking some serious butt. In fact, if you watch the Lucy trailer, Johansson is just beginning her amped up journey in the below clip.

    Luc Besson wrote and directed the film and we could not be more excited to see the next great work from the man who gave us La Femme Nikita, The Professional and The Fifth Element.

    Johansson stars as a reluctant drug mule that is kidnapped and has drugs surgically implanted inside her. When she gets kicked, the drugs are released and she begins to use an ever-increasing percentage of her brain.

    And as you can see from the above clip, that is not so good for people who get in her way. 

    Lucy hits theaters July 25 and until then, watch The Fifth Element online and let it serve as a reminder of the brilliance of Besson.

    We just premiered the Exodus: Gods and Kings trailer and it has been almost universally hailed in its biblical telling of the Moses story. Christian Bale is Moses in Ridley Scott’s epic, and if you are teased from the trailer, that is a good thing, according to Scott in an interview with Empire.

    Exodus Christian Bale

    Those plagues that are iconic from the Moses story… we’re only getting the beginning in the trailer.

    “I’ve held back a bit -- wait till you see the movie. You must never oversell yourself. You’ve got to wait till you’re three weeks out, then you go for it. This is a big movie. 1300 effects shots is a lot. Not compared to something like Star Wars, sure, but we’re not ‘effecty’ in that sense of the word,” Scott said.

    “One of the things that has come off really well is the reality of the characters. You wouldn’t call it an effects film even though in many ways a lot of what was needed is extraordinary. There were things I couldn’t build. But in today’s world the effects are so good that it looks real, effectively.”

    One thing is for sure, although one of the last classic directors to embrace the digital format, he is clearly enjoying his newfound joy in the format.

    “I went digital really late in the day, maybe even later than Steven [Spielberg]. I was one of the diehards who said they couldn’t possibly go to push-button technology without really realizing that it actually works like a son of a bitch,” Scott added.

    “It gets you what you want and you can control it. Outside of digital the whole thing depends on so many other factors. How many prints have been run off it and so forth. On this, when you press a button it’s the same.”

    Scott had told a source of Movie Fanatic's at Fox that Exodus: Gods and Kings was one of the films in his career he was most proud of, which is clear from his feelings looking at the close-to-finished product.

    “Well, in terms of the metaphorical aspects, yes [this is the biggest project I’ve done]. Even budgetarily it’s probably the biggest. But I didn’t approach it as my biggest. I never do that,” Scott said.

    “I always approach it from the point of view of the characters, of the story. I never realized Gladiator was going to be quite as large in terms of its scope and yet it was a very small, personal story -- a revenge. A simple revenge into which we had jig-sawed some characters.”

    The first trailer for the next directorial feature for Angelina Jolie, Unbroken, has premiered. The stunning teaser gives us just a glimpse into the powerful life of real-life hero Louis “Louie” Zamperini (Jack O’Connell).

    Zamperini struggled as he grew up fighting his own internal battle between good and bad. When he found track and field, he had found his voice and his purpose. He would go on to become a gold medal-winning Olympian and become the hero of a nation.

    When World War II arrived, he signed up and became an airman who would be shot down in the Pacific. He and his fellow crew would spend 47 days in a raft and somehow miraculously survive. They would be rescued, but by the Japanese. He would then spend years in a Japanese prison camp.

    This story is beyond powerful and frankly it’s hard to believe it hasn’t been brought to life before now. But, judging by the above trailer, we are beyond thrilled that it is Jolie that is telling his story as this thing has Oscar written all over it.

    Unbroken lands in theaters December 25. Sadly, Zamperini passed away at 97 just last week. 

    And Jolie, boy, is she on a roll of late. Her Maleficent became her highest grossing movie in her career!

    Ian McKellen took to his Twitter account and posted our first look at him as the legendary Sherlock Holmes in Mr. Holmes. “Over 70 actors have previously played Sherlock Holmes. Now he’s 93 years old and it’s my turn,” he stated with the below photo.

    Mr. Holmes Ian McKellen

    McKellen, as he said, is set to play the iconic sleuth as an old man who is haunted by a 50-year-old case he could not solve.

    Mr. Holmes is based on the novel by Mitch Cullin, which takes place in 1947 and finds McKellen as Holmes living in Sussex village with his housekeeper and her son, who also dreams of being a detective. Perhaps the son will help him solve the case that got away? We’re thinking yes.

    Laura Linney also stars in the film that is being directed by Bill Condon (Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 1 and 2, Dreamgirls).

    McKellen is truly hitting his stride in the last half of his life. I mean, the guy has played Gandalf, Magneto and now Sherlock Holmes?!

    Check out another guy as Sherlock Holmes and watch Sherlock Holmes online with Robert Downey Jr. killing it in the role.

    Fast and Furious 7 is in the can! Director James Wan has shot his last scene of Fast and Furious 7, a production that has seen extreme difficulty with the tragic death of Paul Walker. The filming halted for months while they re-wrote the story and brought in Walker’s brothers to finish the shooting months after his passing.

    The “Fast and Furious family” released a statement announcing the end of production and it is both touching and hopeful. The film hits theaters April 3, 2015, and to celebrate the conclusion of principal photography, they also released a still of star Vin Diesel in character, looking quite somber we might add.

    “Today we completed the last shot in the production of Fast and Furious 7. We wanted to take this moment to express how thankful we are for your support. We felt the love and strength from our fans throughout this journey, and it’s because of you that we got here,” the statement read.  

    “There was a time when we didn’t know how we could go on, or even if we should. But we listened to you, and you inspired us not only to keep going but to try and make the best Fast and Furious movie yet.”

    The statement went on to talk about how the family of Fast and Furious has grown tighter over the years. “Our Fast family has been together for almost fifteen years now and has grown a lot in that time. From the start, Vin has been our leader who feels what’s right for Fast in his gut and in his heart. When we had to stop production last year, Vin gathered us back together and moved us forward when we needed it most. He led us to this day,” the statement continued.

    “Some of us have been here from the very beginning. Vin, Michelle, Jordana and our producer Neal all go back to that first little movie we shot on the streets of LA. We came back to LA in Fast 7, and it was an especially emotional homecoming for those who’ve grown up with each other since that first shoot.”

    It went on to thank more of those who have recently joined the world. “There are those we count as brothers who we gathered along the way and are with us again: Dwayne, Tyrese, Luda, Lucas and our writer, Chris. We’ve got some new additions this time in Jason, Kurt, Djimon, Nathalie and our director, James. Caleb and Cody joined us to honor their brother and help complete his work,” filmmakers said.

    Then, they addressed the loss. “Our family is big and strong but it won’t ever quite be whole again without Paul. All of us -- those who’ve been here from the start and those whose first Fast film is 7 -- wanted to create a special film for him and for you. We believe we have. Thank you for being there for us. You are the biggest part of our family, and we couldn’t have gotten here without you. The countdown to April 3 begins.”
