Ant-Man (Teaser) and Demonic Trailers
As Marvel Studios continues its conquest of the entertainment world, we're given another intriguing superhero to latch on to. Paul Rudd stars as a con artist who accepts the responsibility of being Ant-Man, a hero armed with the unique ability to shrink in size, but increase in strength, in order to protect the world. Ant-Man boasts a particularly unusual team with comedy star Paul Rudd taking center stage and director Peyton Reed (Bring It On and Yes Man) at the helm. But after last year's surprise blockbuster hit, Guardians of the Galaxy, I'm open to giving a fair chance to anything that Marvel produces, Ant-Man is slated to reach theaters on July 17th, 2015.
Horror enthusiasts have latched onto their beloved niche director, James Wan (Saw and The Conjuring), who crafts another promising tale with Demonic. Although Wan's story has been carefully placed in the hands of director Will Canon, who helmed the clever 2010 indie film Brotherhood, anything with Wan's name attached is sure to attract an audience. Demonic follows a police office (The Purge: Anarchy's Frank Grillo) and psychologist (Prisoners' Maria Bello) who investigate the mysterious deaths of five people who were attempting to summon spirits. If this film is even half as good as The Conjuring, we're in for a real treat.
