Quantcast

After some festival appearances and a limited theatrical run last year, NERDLAND, the feature-length animated adult comedy from Titmouse, Inc., creators of the hit animated series Metalocalypse, comes to Blu-ray and DVD February 7, 2017 (out now on Digital HD), from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment and Samuel Goldwyn Films. The film features Paul Rudd (Sausage PartyAnt-Man) and Patton Oswalt (Ratatouille, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) leading an all-star comic voice cast in a tale of two showbiz nobodies (Rudd and Oswalt) determined to become famous at any cost. Check out the trailer (not for kids!) and details below...

MARVEL's ANT-MAN was not only one of my favorite movies of the year (review here), but a film I was fortunate to be able to cover first-hand as a guest of Disney/Marvel earlier this summer. While interviews with the cast and filmmakers was certainly a huge highlight, back at home the wide array of cool toys and collectibles spawned from the 12th entry into the MARVEL Cinematic Universe made sure to keep our whole family busy with a ton of unique adventures. During my ANT-MAN journey, I'd taken pictures with my MARVEL Infinite Legends ANT-MAN figure by Hasbro, doing a little "Toyography" here and there to have some fun. Little did I know that my ant-sized toys would eventually have their own to-scale copy of this week's Blu-ray release to call their own.

Back in June, I took some of the then-just-released ANT-MAN toys from my personal collection to the press junket for MARVEL's ANT-MAN in Los Angeles. It was there that many of the cast members (including Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Corey StollMichael Douglas, T.I., Michael Pena and David Dastmalchian) got their first look at they toys from their debut entry into the MARVEL Cinematic Universe. One of the biggest hits was my Funko Pop! Vinyl Yellowjacket, which put a huge smile on Corey Stoll's face before the interviews got started. What I didn't find until after the junket was a Pop! Vinyl Ant-Man, and now the little guy is back with one of the film's most unexpectedly-popular co-stars... ANT-THONY. This December, Funko will release an ANT-MAN and ANT-THONY Pop! RIDES 2-Pack, available for pre-order now via my friends at Entertainment Earth.

This past weekend, the 12th film in the MARVEL Cinematic Universe (MCU) arrived in theaters, keeping the perfect record intact by securing a 12th consecutive #1 spot at the box office. While MARVEL's ANT-MAN came in just shy of its projected $60M mark in the U.S., scoring the top spot was no easy feat for a film based on an obscure character that was even more "out there" than last year's GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY. Now, as Phase Two of the MCU comes to a close and Phase 3 begins, I'm sharing some words from a conversation with ANT-MAN Director Peyton Reed and MARVEL Studios head Kevin Feige - a conversation about the future of the MCU, women in that universe, and the genesis of ANT-MAN. If you haven't seen ANT-MAN and wish to remain spoiler-free, now's your chance to stop reading because I'm about to sting you in the next paragraph. Here we go...

Last month, prior to spending some time with the cast and filmmakers behind MARVEL's ANT-MAN at Walt Disney Studios, I had the opportunity to attend the very first press screening of the film at an AMC in Burbank. It's always best to see the finished product before delving into interview territory for those involved, but that can be a tricky situation - depending on the film itself. Fortunately, I exited ANT-MAN with a smile on my face, and a ton of thoughts racing through my head as I worked to digest the multi-layered approach to a comic book character that most mainstream audiences are likely unfamiliar with. MARVEL's ANT-MAN scores big by "going small" - the first true "family" film in the MARVEL Cinematic Universe (MCU).
