Marvel fans: Get excited.
People got to check out Ant-Man and the Wasp for the first time on Friday night, and while reviews will have to wait until next week, the inevitable tweeting has begun. And if the initial reaction from critics is any indication, Marvel fans are in a delightful sequel to the 2015 film.
Of note: Much of the initial reactions suggest viewers should stick around until the very end. Per critic Ben Davis, the film “has two post-credit scenes you can’t afford to miss.”

Another word that’s appeared multiple times in reference to the film: “Fun,” with critics lauding its comedic sensibilities.
…Don’t go in expecting to get answers to questions from Infinity War. The movie is mostly a stand alone film, even more so than the first one. That said, you’re stupid if you don’t stay in your seat for the credits, more so than a lot of Marvel films.

Here’s what other critics had to say:
#AntManAndTheWasp has everything Marvel fans are hoping for. Amazing tech, hilarious quips, Ant-Man enters the Quantum Realm and eats Bucky’s ass, and some twists and turns that’ll leave those left heartbroken by the events of INFINITY WAR with something to look forward to.

Ant-Man: A bit more charm than the first and more character work. Everyone seemed to love it. I liked it, but not as much as the first one. Pena is awesome again. Must stay for post credits!

Ant-Man and the Wasp is superfun AND has the most Morrissey content of any superhero movie. recommended for both reasons

ANT-MAN AND THE WASP is probably the closest Marvel will ever get to #nicecore. there’s no villain! just… mild impediments. And teamwork! I love teamwork.
everyone says “quantum” a lot, and then they joke *about* how everyone says “quantum” a lot. fun, funny, and forgettable.

ANT-MAN AND THE WASP is for sure an upgrade from the first film (I didn’t love the first Ant-Man). Lilly’s Wasp has at least the same, or probably more, action scenes than Rudd’s Ant-Man.
Also: Michael Peña has a scene halfway through that brings the house down.

‘Breaking Bad’ two-hour movie reportedly in the works
“The Walking Dead‘s Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) is officially done with the show, but he’s poised now to leap into a spin-off trilogy of movies. It looks like there may be similar plans in the works for another AMC series: Breaking Bad.
Creator Vince Gilligan is reportedly working on a two-hour movie set inside the Breaking Bad universe. Don’t get too excited yet, as the news comes from unnamed sources speaking to The Hollywood Reporter.
It’s not clear if the movie is intended for television or theatrical release, though Lincoln’s spin-off trilogy is notably bound for AMC. The network could have designs on turning more of its top series into made-for-TV movies.
It’s also not yet known if Breaking Bad stars Bryan Cranston or Aaron Paul will participate in any way. There are certain limitations on continuing their stories from the show, as anyone who watched Breaking Bad no doubt realizes. A prequel featuring the duo seems similarly unlikely, given how the series opens and introduces them……………………………………………………”
Tom Hanks as Mister Rogers will brighten your day
Tom Hanks will be playing Mister Rogers in an upcoming biopic.
“The first image of Tom Hanks as Mister Rogers is here and it will brighten your day.
Tom Hanks will be playing Mister Rogers in an upcoming untitled biopic, and seeing him in that iconic red cardigan and blue sneakers is heartwarming. Take a look:
The Mister Rogers biopic, which is slated to come out in October 2019, is inspired by the life of Fred Rogers, the inspirational and inimitable host of the children’s TV show Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood. Specifically, the biopic will look at Rogers’ relationship with journalist Tom Junod, who wrote a profile of Rogers for Esquire in 1998.
Rogers created the show Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood which for years taught children and adults alike how to be more kind to each other and take care of themselves. The show impacted so many people in the decades that it aired, delivering innumerable tidbits of wisdom until its final episode in 2001.
Rogers passed away in 2003, leaving behind an unmarred legacy of promoting happiness, self-care, and empathy to the world.
The biopic is being directed by Diary of a Teenage Girl director Marielle Heller and was slated to start production this fall.
UPDATE: Sept. 27, 2018, 4:02 p.m. EDT This article originally reported that this film was titled You Are My Friend. The film was originally titled You Are My Friend when it was first announced, but now the project is currently untitled……………..”
A Star Is Born’s First Song is Transcendent
If this song doesn’t give you chills, I feel bad for you.
“Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper give an unbelievable performance in the song “Shallow” for A Star Is Born, creating a heartfelt, moving track that deserves an award. No, all the awards. Cooper’s voice is great. Lady Gaga is transcendent.
And yes, this the song with the famous Lady Gaga vocal.
“Shallow” is the first song released from the upcoming A Star Is Born movie, which dives into theaters Oct. 5. Now please release the rest of the songs.”
