It's a good week to be Michael Douglas.

The actor earned a Golden Globe last night for his role in HBO's Behind the Candleabra, and he's signed on for an even bigger movie role.

Marvel insiders confirm that the veteran actor will star opposite Paul Rudd as Ant-Man in the big screen adaption of this comic. He will play the villainous Hank Pym.

Michael Douglas Wins!

“With Hank Pym’s rich history in the Marvel Universe, we knew we needed an actor capable of bringing the weight and stature to the role that the character deserves,” said Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige in a statement.

The Midwest and East Coast weren't the only things that froze this weekend.

Disney's animated smash Frozen continued to burn all competition at the box office, racking up $20.7 million more and once again finishing with the most money made at the movies.

It has now earned $297.8 million domestically and an astounding $639.9 million worldwide.

The Wolf of Wall Street is f-cking awesome.

Because it received a 74% on Rotten Tomatoes? Not exactly, no.

Because it has set a record for most uses of the F bomb over the course of a single movie. Yes, someone out there really keeps track of this stuff.

According to the tally, the word "f-ck" is used 506 times through Martin Scorsese's drama, which stars Leonardi DiCaprio and which is based on a true story of greed and excess in 1980s New York.

Paul Rudd has something to be happy about this week aside from mostly positive Anchorman 2 reviews.

The beloved actor has been cast by Marvel as Ant-Man!

The superhero-based blockbuster will be released on July 31, 2015 and directed by Edgar Wright. It will focus on a character's discovery of a size-altering formula and his subsequent ability to control insects.

“When Edgar Wright came to us with the idea of Paul Rudd, we felt a huge sense of relief because the first step in creating any Marvel Studios film is finding the right star,” Marvel studio head Kevin Feige said in a statement.

It's not often that a movie poster generates controversy, but it's not often that a best-selling novel about cancer-stricken teens get adapted for the big screen either.

A new piece of promotional art for The Fault in Our Stars was unveiled on Buzzfeed yesterday, with many fans doing a double take over the tagline below stars Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort.

ONE SICK LOVE STORY, it reads, prompting many to wonder if - based on the aforementioned delicate subject matter - this is some kind of twisted joke.

But John Green, the author of the novel, took to Tumblr and defended the studio's decision.

Nobody gave me a sh-t about the Jump Street reboot but you got lucky. So now this department has invested a lot of money to make sure Jump Street keeps going.

So says Nick Offerman's Deputy Chief Hardy in an especially meta quote from the first trailer for 22 Jump Street, a sequel no one could have predicated when the original comedy hit screens last year.

The preview sends Channing Tatum's Greg Jenko and Jonah Hill's Morton Schmidt to college, where they must track down a university drug dealer.

Expect some frat parties. Some cursing. And a whole lot of drinking to go down as Rob Riggle returns as Dr. Walters and Dave Franco comes back as Eric.

Watch the red band trailer now and prepare for a June 13 release.
