Marvel Studios Begins Production On Ant-Man

5958C2A9-D6DC-45D4-AF3A-8B2FD4068802

Marvel Studios began principal photography today in San Francisco, California, on its newest Super Hero franchise Marvel’s “Ant-Man.” The film brings one of Marvel comics’ original founding members of The Avengers into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The production also shoots on location in Atlanta, Georgia, which serves as the base for the film’s production.

Set for release in the United States on July 17, 2015, the film is directed by Peyton Reed (“Bring it On,” “The Break-Up”) and stars Paul Rudd (“I Love You Man,” “Role Models”) as Scott Lang aka Ant-Man, and Michael Douglas (“Behind The Candelabra,” “Wall Street”) as his mentor Dr. Hank Pym and Evangeline Lilly (“The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug,” “Lost”) as Hope Van Dyne, daughter of Hank Pym.

The film also includes outstanding additional cast including Corey Stoll (“House of Cards,” “The Bourne Legacy”), Bobby Cannavale (“Danny Collins,” “Annie,” “HBO’s “The Long Play”), Michael Peña (“End of Watch,” “American Hustle”), Abby Ryder Fortson (“Togetherness”), Judy Greer (“13 Going on 30,” “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes”), David Dastmalchian (“The Dark Knight,” “Prisoners”), Wood Harris (“Remember the Titans,” “The Wire”), John Slattery (“Mad Men,” Marvel’s “Iron Man 2”) and Gregg Turkington (“The Comedy,” “On Cinema”) and multi-hyphenate T.I. (“American Gangster,” “Takers”).

Based on the Marvel comic character first published in 1962, Marvel’s “Ant-Man” continues the lineage of epic big-screen adventures chronicled in Marvel’s “Iron Man,” “The Incredible Hulk,” “Iron Man 2,” “Thor,” “Captain America: The First Avenger,” “Marvel’s The Avengers,” “Iron Man 3,” “Thor: The Dark World,” “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” “Guardians of the Galaxy” and the upcoming Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron.”

Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, con-man Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) must embrace his inner-hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), 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.

Marvel’s “Ant-Man” is produced by Marvel Studios’ president, Kevin Feige, with Louis D’Esposito, Alan Fine, Victoria Alonso, Michael Grillo and Stan Lee serving as executive producers.

Director Peyton Reed’s creative team also includes Oscar winning cinematographer Russell Carpenter (“Titanic,” “21”), production designer Sheppard Frankel (“Identity Thief,” “Horrible Bosses”) costume designer Sammy Sheldon Differ (“X-Men: First Class,” “Kick Ass”), visual effects supervisor Jake Morrison (Marvel’s “Thor: The Dark World,” “The Lord of the Rings: Two Towers”), stunt coordinator Jeff Habberstad (Marvel’s “Iron Man 3,” “X-Men: Days of Future Past”) and six-time Oscar® nominee, special effects supervisor Dan Sudik (“Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” “Marvel’s The Avengers”).  The editors include Dan Lebental, ACE (Marvel’s “Thor: The Dark World,” Marvel’s “Iron Man”) and Colby Parker Jr. (“Lone Survivor,” “Hancock”).

The Alamo Drafthouse To Open First Los Angeles, CA Theater In 2015

Attachment-1

The Alamo Drafthouse will open its first Los Angeles, California theater at The Bloc, a 1.8 million square foot mixed use destination at the hub of the city’s retail, entertainment, financial, and sports center. The Alamo Drafthouse Downtown is slated to open in 2015 as The Bloc completes its $180 million renovations and opens its doors as a vibrant, open-air, pedestrian-friendly, urban destination.

Alamo Drafthouse provides a unique combination of theater and restaurant, showing first-run and independent films and special programming events with an extensive menu made from scratch in a state-of-the-art culinary kitchen. The Alamo Drafthouse Downtown will be located in the southwest corner of The Bloc next to Macy’s third floor.

Alamo Drafthouse Downtown will have nine screens and seat approximately 800 people for new release movies, independent, foreign and classic films, as well as an exhaustive slate of the Alamo’s unique signature event programming. Each of the auditoriums will be equipped with state of the art 4K digital projection, big screens and amazing sound.  In addition to providing superior presentation, the Alamo eliminates the traditional front rows to ensure there’s no bad seat in the house. The theater will also be equipped for 3D and archival 35mm projection.

In keeping with the Alamo’s commitment to providing the best in-theater dining experience, the downtown LA destination will feature locally inspired and sourced food and drink. Moviegoers can order food and drinks from their seats while servers silently attend to them throughout the film. The Alamo will also be opening an adjacent craft beer bar featuring an extensive array of Californian beers.

Accessibility and integration with the city at large continues to be a priority for The Bloc and the Alamo Drafthouse. The Alamo Drafthuose Downtown will be conveniently accessed without needing to go above ground via the Blue, Expo, Purple and Red lines at the 7th Avenue Metro stop. Future Metro expansion will connect the Alamo Drafthouse Downtown to Santa Monica, Pasadena and the San Bernandino Valley. The theater will offer four hours of free validated parking as well as free bicycle valet.

By focusing on great film, food and drinks along with exceptional presentation, a no-advertisement policy and a notoriously strict no talking/no texting policy, the Alamo Drafthouse strives to be the movie theater by movie fans for movie fans.
