    Two years ago who'd have thought that GotG would be being used to prop up anything.

    I just noticed that Ant-Man is on the poster 3 different times. Once full size in the suit, once shrunk down standing on the Marvel logo, and then as Scott Lang wearing a hoodie.

    I've seen the trailer the past couple of nights and it looks good and it'll be a nice compliment to the big action movie Age Of Ultron is.

    That is definitely one of the lamest movie posters I've ever seen. I'm pretty sure I could have whipped that up in about 20 minutes.

    I think those were probably some of the laziest posters ever.

    In general Hollywood has lazy posters for 90% of it's output, regardless of genre.
    The real challenge is to find a studio who on rare occasion puts out one that could pass as art, creative and eye catching as many were mid 20th century. Picking on the action fare films is like shooting fish in a barrel really.

    Agreed. Plenty of substance alluded to in this one compared to AoU. It's almost as if they planned it this way.

    Definitely like that poster a lot more than the last one.

    Oh right. They made an Ant-Man movie. Totally forgot about it.

    Great to hear the overwhelming amount of positive reviews.
    I'm not surprised as it's still a Marvel Studios production. Behind the scenes drama or not.

    After the disappointment that will be Terminator: Genysis people will be hungry for a fun film.

    It doesn't surprise me at all. The Marvel machine rolls on.

    Sorry for the double post, but it looks like Marvel put out a new trailer:

    Two weeks ago the tracking was at $55m.
    It's now at the same point in tracking GotG was. Now I'm not saying it's going to explode in a similar manner but it bodes well for it breaking out. If it just opened in the current projected ballpark that's a huge win. That general audiences don't have the same cynicism about the title character and his name, Ant-Man, as some internet snobs have treated him is telling.

    Critics lit Twitter up after the press screening last weekend with dominantly positive remarks. For those who care about that avenue.

    Odd, off the wall observation. Michael Douglas sounds like Stan Lee in some of the commercials. Especially when he says "Ant-Man"
