Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, con-man Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) must embrace his inner-hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), protect the secret behind his spectacular Ant-Man suit from a new generation of towering threats. Against seemingly insurmountable obstacles, Pym and Lang must plan and pull off a heist that will save the world.

Along with Rudd and Douglas, Marvel’s ‘Ant-Man’ also stars Evangeline Lilly (‘The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug’), Corey Stoll (‘The Strain’), Bobby Cannavale (‘Annie’), Michael Peña (‘American Hustle’), Abby Ryder Fortson (‘Togetherness’), Judy Greer (‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’), David Dastmalchian (‘Prisoners’), Wood Harris (‘Remember the Titans’), John Slattery (‘Iron Man 2’), Gregg Turkington (‘The Comedy’) and T.I. (‘American Gangster’).

‘Ant-Man’ arrives in Irish cinemas next summer.
