TRAILER: Marvel’s Georgia-shot ‘Ant-Man’

by Jordan McGuire on January 8, 2015

Chris Pratt just nailed his part as Star-Lord in Marvel’s incredibly popular Guardians of the Galaxy, and he did it with a mix of humor and heroics. It’s a formula that Marvel is looking to repeat, especially because of the box office’s response to GuardiansAnt-Man will star Paul Rudd in a superhero movie that will hopefully make you laugh, and, given his comedy pedigree, I have high hopes that Paul Rudd will nail it too.

Ant-Man was filmed in Georgia and was written by Step Brothers, Anchorman and Talladega Nights penman Adam McKay and also the star himself, Paul Rudd. This unconventional Marvel film also stars Hobbit alum Evangeline Lilly, Michael Douglas, Boardwalk Empire alum Bobby Cannavale and the courageously funny Judy Greer.

With the release date only six months away, the Marvel marketing machine is gearing up, giving us this first teaser, along with a slew of photos and new information about the long-in-development project that swapped director Edgar Wright for direct Peyton Reed.

The film is set to be released July 17, 2015. Although the long, tumultuous development process may have some fans hesitating and Marvel’s newest offering, it should be a fantastic summer blockbuster that features the can’t-miss actor, Paul Rudd.
