Marvel Studios began principal photography today in San Francisco, California, on its newest Super Hero franchise Marvel's "Ant-Man." The film brings one of Marvel comics' original founding members of The Avengers into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The production also shoots on location in Atlanta, Georgia, which serves as the base for the film's production.

Okay so for today's edition of To The Right, I'm gonna have to call out one Phil Mickelson, who if any of you are like me and don't watch golf at all don't know is a big name in the golf world. Of course because I'm a sports nut I know who he is purely by accident despite the fact that golf is the best sleep aid for me since Sominex. But I digress. Phil, or as they call him, Lefty, is in a peck of trouble being investigated for what is known as "insider trading". Don't know what that is? Watch Wall Street, and not the Wolf of Wall Street, I'm talking the Michael Douglas classic from back in the day. And may I say this doesn't surprise me in the slightest? I mean let's see, Phil hasn't won jack or squat lately on the tour, so maybe he finally found something he's good at, bilking people out of money. Then again, he's been doing it to the PGA for how long now?

Michael Douglas reveals son Dylan's acting demands WITH A family tree of acting greats it shouldn’t come as a big surprise that Michael Douglas’s son Dylan wants to follow in his father’s footsteps. Michael, 69, whose father Kirk started acting in the Forties, explained that despite Dylan being only 13 he has his eyes firmly on the prize and no longer thinks he needs to go to school. “Dylan doesn’t see any reason to do anything else because he wants to act,” Michael, who won Best Actor for his role in Wall Street in 1987, tells US TV host Jay Leno. “He doesn’t want to go to school or anything, he wants to be an actor. “He was at me the other day. He said, ‘Look dad, I’ve been president of my sixth grade, my seventh grade, I’m in eighth grade now and I’m president of the school.’ "I said, ‘Dylan, I know, I’m so proud of you.’ "He said, ‘Dad I’ve been on the honour roll for two years straight.

right on Michael Douglas is sick... Wall Street is one of my favorite movies ever
"THE WOLF OF Wall StREET".I will tell you straight out that I consider this film to be one of the top two films of 2013. This simply might be the movie of the year. Martin Scorsese has directed a human amusement park ride with dazzling cinematography containing mesmerizingly artful colors, editing that defies gravity, an outstanding soundtrack, a script that takes you to the Land of OZ and back and supreme performances by nearly everyone in the cast. I laughed out loud for most of the movie. *** just think Animal House (the John Belushi classic) meets Wall Street (the original Michael Douglas, Charlie Sheen masterpiece) meets Goodfellas. And the wildest thing of all? This is based on the true story of one of the greatest overachievers (or greatest hustler, if you will) in the history of bigtime Wall Street finance. Leonardo DiCaprio portrays real life Wall Street carnival barker Jordan Belfort. I had thought DiCaprio gave an excellent performance as Jay Gatsby earlier in the year and couldn't top that ...
My review of "Wolf of Wall Street". I was so excited to see another Leo DiCaprio film after The Great Gatsby. Unfortunately, I left the theatre wondering "hmmm, why didn't I like that?--it got great reviews?". Just my opinion but Leo is terrific at capturing this self-absorbed, money-drug-success addict's character and the acting is all-around terrific. Matthew Mcconaughey is brilliant in his just 10 minutes on camera and so is Jonah Hill. So acting wasn't the problem. I think the writing was shallow and the story-telling felt sophomoric. It was like a college-kid telling a tale of a great frat party.. You just can't take that much of it. Additionally, the nudity and profanity was way over-the-top . Just a warning ...The f-word was said 506 times in 3 hours which breaks a record for saying it in a non-documentary film. So overall, I expect much more intelligence from a Scorcese-Dicaprio film. I found myself missing Michael Douglas and the fabulous writing-"greed is good"-in 1987's Wall Street.
The pains and the pleasure of Wall Street life * Scorsese's latest film about the cocky young broker who makes millions is no morality tale, but that does not make it any less entertaining There is no nobility in poverty", a young and ambitious Bud Fox, played by Charlie Sheen, tells Gordon Gekko, the symbolic 'evil' Wall Street trader so memorably essayed by Michael Douglas in the 1987 Oliver Stone film, Wall Street. If "greed is good" was the line immortalised by Gekko, this may well have been the Fox dialogue that endured. Three decades on, that line is now repeated by Jordan Belfort, the aggressive young stockbroker who becomes a millionaire in his 20s and is the protagonist of The Wolf of Wall Street, Martin Scorsese's much-anticipated latest film starring Leonardo DiCaprio. The films do share similarities. The milieu is the same, after all - the high-adrenaline, fist-pumping, foul-mouthed trading floors of broking houses and the protagonists in both are hungry young men eager to get rich quick and e ...
In "Wall Street" in 1987, stockbroker wizard Michael Douglas is able to convince young stockbroker Martin Sheen to join his team and become rich as the pair rides in a Douglas' richly appointed limousine.
Disappointed by Wolf of Wall Street. Not as awful as Shutter Island. It should have been Cut by an hour and half and more Jonah Hill and other traders would have made it better. DiCaprio does three one man monologues, not one can hold a Candle to Michael Douglas's in Wall Street or Alec Baldwin's in Glen Gary Glen Ross. It's an OK flick at best, all this movie has to offer is glorified drug use, breasts, and dirty jokes. When will Scorsese make another personal film like Raging Bull, Goodfellas, Casino, and Bringing out the Dead instead of these lame brain Hollywood movies for hire.
Michael Douglas was in Wall Street when he was 43. Leonardo DiCaprio is the Wolf of Wall Street at 39. Whoa.
Michael Douglas is ''very hopeful'' he and his wife Catherine Zeta-Jones can work through their marital problems. The 'Wall Street' actor and the 'Rock of Ages' star announced in August they were taking a ''break'' from each other after
I'm suggesting "Gordon Gekko", after Michael Douglas' character in Wall Street.
What if was the star of Wall Street instead of Michael Douglas?
Wall StREET: GREED IS GOOD It is just not possible that I write about the markets and about the movies that I like and never make a mention of the 1987 movie Wall Street. I thought it was an incredible movie when I saw it back in 90s and I think it is an incredible movie even now. There were several terrific things going for the movie but none better than the casting of Michael Douglas in the iconic role of Gordon Gekko. Now, when you think of the character of Gekko it is impossible to think of any other actor who could have played that role as well. Michael Douglas, the actor and Gordon Gekko, the character he played, are inseparable. There are several great lines too in the movie. For example “Lunch is for wimps” or “If you need a friend, get a dog” But by far the most quoted dialogue from the movie is the speech that Gekko gives to the shareholders of Teldar papers and I quote Gordon Gekko: “Well, I appreciate the opportunity you're giving me Mr. Cromwell as the single largest shareholder in ...

In 1987, the world was a different place. There was no Google yet. Or Yahoo. Or Youtube, for that matter. In 1987, the year of your birth, the top selling movie was Fatal Attraction. People buying the popcorn in the cinema lobby had glazing eyes when looking at the poster. Remember, that was before there were DVDs. People were indeed watching movies in the cinema, and not downloading them online. Imagine the packed seats, the laughter, the excitement, the novelty. And mostly all of that without 3D computer effects. Do you know who won the Oscars that year? The Academy Award for the best movie went to The Last Emperor. The Oscar for best foreign movie that year went to Babette's Feast. The top actor was Michael Douglas for his role as Gordon Gekko in Wall Street. The top actress was Cher for her role as Loretta Castorini in Moonstruck. The best director? Bernardo Bertolucci for The Last Emperor. In the year 1987, the time when you arrived on this planet, books were still popularly read on paper, not on dig ...

Boy does time fly. 1988 was a very interesting year. Ronald Reagan was the President. Cher was the "Best Actress" for "Moonstruck." Michael Douglas won "Best Actor" for "Wall Street." Best movie was "The Last Emperor." Bush beats Dukakis for President. The Soviet Union started pulling out of their Afghanistan War. Bobby McFerrin's "Don't Worry be Happy" was the Top Song. U2 released "Rattle & Hum." But the most important date of 1988 was July 5th. Faye Tompkins Barron's first day at the University of Utah! Twenty-five years ago today and still counting...Happy 25th Anniversary Faye! You are the "Amazing" and thanks for being the "Best" thing that ever happened to me...(sorry Tommy)

Katie Hudson - daughter of Goldie Hawn - looks very wishy washy . Liev Shreiber (Wolverine's brother in X Men ) as Bobby - American journalist / CIA . Enjoyable.

Directed by Oliver Stone. With Michael Douglas, Carey Mulligan, Shia Labeouf, Josh Brolin. Now out of prison but still disgraced by his peers, Gordon Gekko works his future son-in-law, an idealistic stock broker, when he sees an opportunity to take down a Wall Street enemy and rebuild his empire.
Instead of reading tonite, I watched for the second or third time, "Wall Street,Money Never Sleeps". Don't understand most of the financial workings that caused the collapse of 2008, but I love Michael Douglas and I love to say Shia Labeouf. Great fun!
It was 23 years between the original and this sequel so audiences weren't exactly screaming for a return, but we get it anyways! Michael Douglas returns as Gordon Gekko, fresh out of jail and looking to start up a new empire. Stock broker Shia Labeouf is dating his estranged daughter (Carrie Mulligan) and trying to get them back together. Timely with the 2008 economic crash, but's missing some energy. Douglas is a highlight, Josh Brolin solid as the baddie, and Wall Street original Charlie Sheen even makes an appearance.
I'll have what Jane Fonda is having. Unless it's Michael Douglas...eww.

In 'Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps,' director Oliver Stone delivers an updated look at our country's economic crisis and follows up to his Regan-era fairy tale, 'Wall Street.' Through the eyes of Michael Douglas ' iconic villain, Gordon Gekko, this new crisis looks a lot like the old one - an opportunity to get rich, again. However, Gekko has been humbled since we last saw him after he served an eight year prison sentence on the account of testimonies and evidence provided by his former protégé, Bud Fox (Charlie Sheen ) and eccentric billionaire rival Bretton James (Josh Brolin ). Now that he is out, the blocks have tumbled for everyone and no one knows which way is up - especially young hot-shot Wall Street player Jake Moore (Shia LaBouf ), who is coincidentally engaged to Gekko's estranged daughter Winnie (Carey Mulligan ). While Jake hardly becomes Gekko's new protégé, he seems eager to help the former tycoon in any way he can...and so the Gekko stand-off begins.
Yeah, "Greed is Good" Michael Douglas as Gordon Gekko in "Wall Street" ...and to be continued. :(
Money itself isn't lost or made, it's simply transferred – from one perception to another. Like magic…The illusion has become real, and the more real it becomes, the more desperately they want it. Capitalism at its finest. - Gordon Gekko (played by Michael Douglas), Wall Street (1987)
I've been watching a lot of Michael Douglas movies on DVD for the last couple of weeks: Basic Instinct (I watching Sharon Stone, too, in this one), Fatal Attraction, Wall Street, Black Rain, Disclosure, The Game, The Ghost and the Darkness, Perfect Murder, Romancing the Stone, The War of the Roses, and Solitary Man. This actor clearly deserves a second Academy Award. Now, he needs to play Dr. Dwight McIntyre, professor of physics, bestselling author of Physics and Parallel Univereses, and American's most infamous serial killer--A Step in the Shadows.
Michael Douglas's career in theatre, film and television has exemplified excellence for over forty years.

An excellent alternative to non-stop election coverage: on Movie Central, Wall Street, possibly Michael Douglas's best films, with Charlie Sheen.
I know that you have all made up your minds on who you are voting for tomorrow but I have to say my piece. I told you all in 2004 that if you re-elected Bush gas would go from the then $1.50-$2 a Gal to $3. Little did I know how much worse it would be. Bush destroyed this country and you gave him 4 more years. If you had put Ron Paul on the ballot, I’d be voting for him. But there is no way I can vote for a guy who is the Gordon Gekko of politics. If you have never seen Wall Street with Michael Douglas, that character said “Greed is Good”. It has been said that the real Wall St. has now been built on this motto.
"This is not about the haves vs the have nots; its about the have it all vs the rest of America." Hollywood saw it coming 25 years ago!

And if you’ve already seen it, take another look and remind yourself as you prepare to enter the voting booth of how we’ve been maneuvered by Wall Street and Beltway insiders, politically engineered into a state of inequality and the disproportionate power of a very few." In its premiere episode, Moyers & Company dives into one of the most important and controversial issues of our time: How Washington and Big Business colluded to make the super-rich richer and turn their backs on the rest of us.

Todays movie picks are from the 1980's. My first pick is Wall Street from 1987. It stars Michael Douglas as Gordon Gekko, a veteran stockbroker who bends the rules to their fullest extent. He recruits a young stockbroker (Charlie Sheen), to do his biding. The film ends with Gekko going to prison for insider trading. Michael Douglas won the 1988 Oscar for Best Actor for his performance, the films only award. My next pick is from 1989, Do the Right Thing. The film, directed by and starring Spike Lee, follows numerous characters on the hottest day of the year in the Bedford-Stuyvesant area of Brooklyn. Some memorable characters include Bug Eyes, Radio Raheem and The Mayor. This is my favorite film of the 1980s. Until next time
“What’s worth doing is worth doing for money.” Michael Douglas as Gordon Gekko - Wall Street
I was watching a program the other evening and the moderator had this gentlemen on who has done extensive work looking into Romney's financial background. It sounded like Richard Gere's role in Pretty Woman and Michael Douglas's role in Wall Street. There was also a woman on his panel of guests whose mother worked for a hotel. Her mother had benefits and a savings plan through the company. Romney bought out the hotel. One of the first things he did was to cancel the employee's health benefits. He ended up destroying everything. The employees lost everything. He's made comments about not caring about the Middle Class. HERE WE GO AGAIN. I DON'T CARE FOR EITHER CANDIDATE. I WISH MICKEY MOUSE WERE A CANDIDATE, I'D BE TEMPTED TO VOTE FOR HIM.

Just watched "Wall Street: The Money Never Sleeps" and it was so good! It is Oliver Stone's sequel to his 1987 film and it stars Shia Labeouf (who surprised me with his maturity as the lead) Josh Brolin (top notch banker-villain) and of course Michael Douglas as the legendary Gordon Gekko!! Seriously check this movie out. It's got an engaging story that mirrors the reality of the '08 financial bailouts, tons of one-liners and anecdotes, and the whole soundtrack by David Byrne & ENO-- *** YEA. Bravo Mr. Stone and crew

after finishing the Tea Party and Wall Street favorite 1,070 page novel of Ayn Rand ATLAS SHRUGGED, now I understand why this deceased female author and her ideas are dangerous. The novel is basically a longer version of Gordon Gecko (Michael Douglas) in the film Wall Street saying "Greed is good." This novel (and her other one The Fountainhead) are directly responsible for the past housing market crisis in the U.S. considering that former Chairman Alan Greenspan was an acolyte of the high priestess Ayn Rand.

In 1987 Michael Douglas made a movie called Wall Street. One of the lines in the move is "Greed is good." If we want to keep our country good, we need to get rid of the people who are so greedy they will do, say or spend anything to get a man like Mitt Romney elected. Make no mistake about it, Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan, the Koch Brothers, Sheldon Adelson, and the rest of the Republican Party elite do not care about Americans, they care about their money and how to make more of it. And they have demonstrated that on a daily basis during this election. If you think things are bad now, go ahead an vote for them, because I promise you they are going to get worse.
I got done watching "The Rundown" starring THE ROCK and The original classic "Wall Street" starring Michael Douglas and Charlie Sheen. Up next is "The Expendables.. :).
You mean two time Academy Award winner Michael Douglas star of Fatal Attraction and Wall Street!? What's he doing at work?
Wall Street with Charlie Sheen and Michael Douglas. Golden oldie of note!
You could have replaced Michael Douglas with Pat Riley in the movie, "Wall Street" and people wouldn't have noticed much.
This is the scene in Boiler Room where Vin Diesel, Ben Affleck, Nicky Katt and Scott Caan watch and quote the movie Wall Street with Michael Douglas and Char...
Michael Douglas' best performance is a toss up between Wall Street (he was made for the part) or Fatal Attraction.
Nothing like a Game 6 that makes me question why I continue to support a league of thugs and wannabe actors. Pacers getting the bad p/r yet the team is far more respectable then the Heat. There is a reason why Pat Riley looks like Michael Douglas in Wall Street.
Dear Editor It's unbelievable how star struck the American Press is with the superich. Andrea Mitchell has her own noon news program and she doesn't know what Bain Capital did! It isn't really practiced anymore because it became so distasteful or they cleared all the carrion I'm not sure which. Corporations were bought at bargain rates, all the assets were mortgaged to the hip, the loans were used to pay "management fees" to Bain and all the cash was sucked out and the company was allowed to fall. Some were bought specifically to rob the pensions of the workers. Buy the company, tell the employees if they want to even keep their pensions they had to take a 50% cut, Bain scooped that money and bought a elevator for their cars. They made a movie about it called "Wall Street," staring Michael Douglas and Charlie Sheen before he started "winning." Now strangely none of that at the time was ilegal and like I said Bain moved away from it in some part because the movie brought to the American conscience the Gala ...

Sometimes you have to go back to the classics to learn something new. Watching "Wall Street" with Michael Douglas and Charlie Sheen...The technology might have changed,but the story is still the same. Somebody's gonna find out. LOL!
As a co-founder of Bain Capital, Romney played the Richard Gere role in Pretty Woman, or if you like your metaphor more diabolical, the Michael Douglas role in Wall Street. That of the slick corporate raider, who somehow manages to build nothing, destroy everything and get filthy rich in the
Why did Michael Douglas win an Emmy for Wall Street? It should have been Charlie Sheen, he did most of the acting.
Investors, take heart: one of the all-time Bad Boys of Wall Street, mean and greedy Gordon Gekko, has turned over a new leaf. We all remember Gordon Gekko, the conniving trader from the terrific Oliver Stone movie “Wall Street.” Set in the booming 1980s, the film’s most memorable line is delivered [...
