Ant-Man may not be the most famous Marvel superhero. In fact, Evangeline Lilly had never even heard of the character when she was approached to appear in the Ant-Man film, which arrives in cinemas July 17. “As the Hobbit actress reveals in the new issue of Entertainment Weekly, “They said, ‘We’re interested in you for a role in Ant-Man and I actually laughed.'”

It’s never an easy walk in Jurassic Park. In fact, guests typically end up running like hell. The fourth installment of Universal’s biggest franchise is no exception. Opening in theaters June 12, World is set 22 years after the original film. The dino-themed amusement park on Isla Nubla has been thriving for years, yielding four-star restaurants (hello, Nobu!) and beautiful resorts.
But in an effort to create new buzz and boost attendance, a hybrid dino is hatched—and that’s when the island’s human population, including dino researcher Owen (Chris Pratt), park operations manager Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard), and her two young nephews (Nick Robinson and Ty Sympkins), are sent sprinting in terror. “There are dinosaurs and there’s the other—there’s this thing that is not one of them, that is not of them,” teases director Colin Trevvorow (Safety Not Guranteed), who was specifically picked by Park director (and World executive producer) Steven Spielberg. Trevorrow adds, “There’s a lot of bold new ideas in the movie and I’m pushing it as far forward as I can. I know Steven didn’t want me to make a carbon copy of the earlier films. So we’re going for it.” READ FULL STORY
EW’s latest cover is an all-access, exclusive peek behind the scenes of next summer’s highly anticipated musical comedy Pitch Perfect 2. The movie takes place 3 years after the first film, with the Barden Bellas ruling the collegiate a cappella world. But then something happens. “They are prohibited—and I won’t say why—from competing at the collegiate level,” says director Elizabeth Banks, who produced the original and appears again as judge Gail. “So they are sort of forced to enter a professional world competition in order to be reinstated.” Here’s what else you need to know about PP2.

The Dowdle brothers talk about shooting their horror-thriller 'As Above So Below' in the Paris catacombs
Ah, Paris. City of love, romance—and a terrifying network of skull-filled catacombs where filmmaking brothers Drew and John Erick Dowdle shot their new horror-thriller As Above So Below. “It is an extremely creepy place,” says director John Erick (Quarantine, Devil). “It really tweaks at the mind. You go down there and your pulse slows. It’s really weird.”

As everyone knows who stuck around to watch the Guardians of the Galaxy post-credit sequence, the film concludes with a scene featuring Benicio Del Toro’s Collector and Howard the Duck. But, according to Guardians director James Gunn, one person who may still be unaware of this is Del Toro himself.
Comic-Con may be one of the biggest movie-related shindigs on the face of the planet, but it still makes space for some of life’s smaller—not to mention Irish-er—things. That’s in reference, of course, to Leprechaun: Origins, the horror reboot starring WWE wrestler Dylan “Hornswoggle” Postl as the titular Emerald Isle monster.
John Carpenter was once among Hollywood’s most prolific filmmakers. But the man who brought us such genre classics as Halloween, The Thing, Escape From New York, and Assault on Precinct 13 has only made one movie in the past 13 years—2010’s psychological thriller The Ward—and hasn’t troubled the box office in a big way since 1998’s James Woods-starring Vampires. (And Carpenter, 66, doesn’t sound like he’s in any rush to get back behind the camera: “I worked really hard for more years than I’d like to count, but now I can pick and choose things,” says the director, who most recently co-penned a comic book follow-up to his 1986 kung fu-fantasy film Big Trouble in Little China. “I was doing too much—music and writing and all this shit. I had to take a break. I’m developing a couple of things. But we’ll see. There’s no urgency.”)
Filmmaking debuts don’t get much more fascinating, or promising, than the horror-tinged sci-fi tale Coherence, the first feature from writer-director James Ward Byrkit, which begins its theatrical run this Friday. The film stars Emily Foxler, Maury Sterling, Elizabeth Gracen, Alex Manugian, Lauren Maher, Hugo Armstrong, Lorene Scafaria, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer vet Nicholas Brendon as a group of friends who gather together for a meal the night a comet is passing overhead and discover there is an identical dinner party, featuring eight doppelgangers, happening down the street.
