Ant Man

We had the first teaser for Ant-Man this week. The Marvel action movie stars Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas, Evangeline Lilly and Hayley Atwell, and centres on a petty criminal who is charged with becoming a shrunk-down, tiny-but-strong superhero. It looks like a lot of fun. Directed by Peyton Reed, the film opens in July. Watch 'Ant-Man' Teaser Trailer.

Meanwhile in Los Angeles, awards season kicked off with the People's Choice Awards, a populist ceremony dominated by kid-friendly winners. Stars on the red carpet included Ellen DeGeneres, Kristin Bell, Adrian Grenier, Kat Dennings, Ariel Winter, Monica Potter, Ellen Pompeo and Michael Willet. Maleficent won the Favourite Movie prize.

Rather more highbrow, the National Board of Review Gala in New York brought out the likes of Clint Eastwood, Julianne Moore, Michael Keaton, Edward Norton, Timothy Spall, Bruce Willis, Chris Rock, Zachary Quinto, J.J. Abrams and Common. Oscar Isaac, Jessica Chastain and David Oyelowo were on-hand to represent A Most Violent Year, which won best film, actor and supporting actress.

The new trailer for The Longest Ride promises another emotive romance based on a Nicholas Sparks novel. This one's a love story between a rodeo rider (Scott Eastwood) and a student (Britt Robertson), as seen in context of a relationship between another couple (Jack Huston and Oona Chaplin) decades earlier. It looks sudsy and swoony, as expected, and opens in April. Watch 'The Longest Ride' Trailer.


And finally, we had the first full trailer for The Peanuts Movie, the Snoopy and Charlie Brown adventure heading to cinemas in November. With bright, colourful 3D animation, the filmmakers have reinvented the classic characters for the modern age, while clearly maintaining their wacky charm. Anticipation is definitely growing for this one. Watch 'Peanuts' Trailer.
