Walt Disney Studios and Marvel Studios have provided us with this high-resolution image giving a first look at Paul Rudd as Scott Lang in Marvel’s Ant-Man (July 17, 2015). The film has just begun filming in San Francisco, as indicated by the image sent to us.
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 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.

Set for release in the United States on July 17, 2015, the film is directed by Peyton Reed and stars Paul Rudd as Scott Lang aka Ant-Man; Michael Douglas as his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym; and Evangeline Lilly as Hope Van Dyne, daughter of Hank Pym.
ABC has announced it will air an hour-long special titled ‘The Story of Frozen: Making an Animated Classic’ which will premiere on the ABC television network on September 2, 2014 at 8:00 pm ET/PT. The special promises to share the behind-the-scenes secrets in producing Frozen, the biggest animated film of all time. Viewers will get a rare look inside Walt Disney Animation Studios and unprecedented access to the creative team that brought Frozen to life. Throughout the one-hour special, the audience will hear from Frozen stars Kristen Bell and Idina Menzel, the directors, songwriters, producer and artists and chief creative officer John Lasseter — the team who dreamed of making a cherished Hans Christian Andersen story into a big screen animated musical. Viewers will take a journey to the beautiful Norwegian villages and landscapes that inspired the look of Arendelle — the fictional kingdom — and see images and footage from the research trips to Norway, Quebec and points beyond that helped create the film’s unforgettable look and feel.
From Walt Disney Animation Studios, the team behind Frozen and Wreck-It Ralph, comes Big Hero 6, an action-packed comedy-adventure about the special bond that develops between Baymax (voice of Scott Adsit), a plus-sized inflatable robot,and prodigy Hiro Hamada (voice of Ryan Potter). When a devastating event befalls the city of San Fransokyo and catapults Hiro into the midst of danger, he turns to Baymax and his close friends adrenaline junkie Go Go Tomago (voice of Jamie Chung), neatnik Wasabi (voice of Damon Wayans Jr.), chemistry whiz Honey Lemon (voice of Genesis Rodriguez) and fanboy Fred (voice of T.J. Miller). Determined to uncover the mystery, Hiro transforms his friends into a band of high-tech heroes called Big Hero 6.
Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment has confirmed our earlier report that the ‘Sing-Along’ edition of the smash animated hit Frozen will be released on DVD and digital on November 18, 2014. As we previously announced, Disney Store has begun taking pre-orders. Amazon has also begun listing the title.
The DVD will contain both the standard theatrical cut as well as the special edition sing-along cut that played in theaters earlier this year. Also included will be the Mickey Mouse Get A Horse! short as well as the ‘Breaking the Ice – The Real Making of Frozen’ six minute featurette that was initially promised on the original Blu-ray release but was never delivered.
Ahead of any official announcement, Disney Store has begun taking pre-orders for a DVD format of the Frozen: Sing-Along edition that enjoyed a theatrical run earlier this year. According to Disney Store, the DVD will be available to own on November 18, 2014.
According to the DVD’s description on the item page, it will include the full theatrical sing-along cut as well as a digital copy of the film. Also promised is an unspecified, ‘never-before-seen’ bonus.
Based on prior experiences with Disney Store, the lack of a Blu-ray version on the site does not preclude one from being available through other retailers as Disney Store has been slow to adopt the Blu-ray format.
Amazon has begun taking pre-orders for the third title in the Disney Legacy Collection, Sleeping Beauty, which will be released on October 7, 2014, in honor of the 55th anniversary of the 1959 animated classic.
The two disc set features the original songs and score from the film as well as album versions of tracks, demos and ‘lost chords’ — songs that were written for the film but were ultimately cut in various stages of production before the film made it to the big screen.
The complete track list is as follows:
As we first reported on Twitter last week, ahead of any official announcement, Amazon has begun taking pre-orders for the Blu-ray edition of ‘Mickey’s Once Upon A Christmas‘ with a release date of November 4, 2014. A few days later, Walmart also began listing the title but as a 3-disc Blu-ray/DVD combo bundle of both ‘Mickey’s Once Upon A Christmas’ as well as ‘Mickey’s Twice Upon A Christmas,’ along with the packaging seen here. It is likely that the Amazon listing is for both titles as well but it has not been updated appropriately.
