19 Best 'Ant Man' Trailer Moments, Because It's Still Blowing Everyone's Minds — VIDEO
If you aren't already on the edge of your seat about all the awesome movies coming out this summer, I honestly don't know what to do with you. For myself, my appetite got whetted with Furious 7, The Avengers: Age of Ultron is close enough to taste, and Trainwreck starring Amy Schumer is my new favorite thing. And, on top of that level of excitement, the new trailer for Ant Man just dropped, and I'm officially in a frenzy. Paul Rudd? As a wry, adorable, off-brand superhero? I'm pretty sure I've been waiting for this moment my entire life.
Ant Man is the story of Scott Lang, a man who's done time as a thief and then is recruited by an inventor named Hank Pym (played by Michael Douglas) to take up the mantel of a superhero whose suit allows him to shrink down to ant-like size and gain ant-like strength to fight crime and criminals. Like Corey Stoll as Yellowjacket! And presumably other social injustices. Either way, the part I'm the most excited about is Rudd getting to flex that humor muscle alongside his very prodigious other muscles that he quite clearly bulked up for this film. It's a process I'm now calling Pulling A Chris Pratt, and I'm as psyched as could be to see it in action.
The movie comes out on Jul. 17, so until then, please join me in poring over the 19 best moments in this trailer. BECAUSE IT LOOKS SO GOOD.

Also a pretty big sucker for lightbulbs exploding in slow motion. Please don't judge.
