Ant-Man Hits Theaters Friday

Ant-Man

Ant-Man PosterAnt-Man, Marvels latest superhero movie, will be released this Friday, July 17th. The highly anticipated movie has been in the works since 2006. Ant-Man is based on the Marvel Comics character and distributed by Walt Disney.

The film is directed by Peyton Reed and stars Paul Rudd as Ant-Man. Rudd also helped write the screenplay. Michael Douglas, Corey Stroll, Evangeline Lilly and Michael Pena star in the film as well. The movie takes places months after the events that took place in the latest Avengers movie. Thief Scott Lang must help his mentor and former hero Dr Pym by safeguarding the mystery of the technology of Ant-man. The technology allows its user to shrink in size, but grow in strength.

The idea of this new movie is based on the comics and was announced back at the San Diego Comic Con is 2006. The film is finally being released this coming weekend, but the cast and fans everywhere have been gearing up for the movie all summer. It is supposed to be a summer blockbuster, but I don’t think it is going to be as big as expected.

Even though the film is projected to make $65 million on its opening weekend, I don’t think it is going to be a hit. Rudd is hilarious in a lot of comedy movies, but not too sure about him as a superhero. I think it is going to get a lot of viewers the first weekend so everyone can see what it is about. But I think the film is going to disappoint. I don’t want to see any Marvel films fail, but something about this one just doesn’t seem as appealing as the others.
