Marvel’s Ant-Man isn’t out until July 27, but given how main character Scott Lang’s story is tied to the relationship he has with his young daughter, the teaser dropped this weekend is an appropriate bit of Father’s Day marketing. Here’s the spot, courtesy of the official Ant-Man Twitter.

The new spot emphasizes Lang (Paul Rudd) and his daughter, with some instances clearly unseen moments from scenes in previous trailers. For instance, Cory Stoll’s Yellowjacket appears to be holding her hostage at one point, almost certainly preceding the hilarious Thomas the Tank Engine gag we saw in spring.
Directed by Peyton Reed from a script cowritten by Edgar Wright, Joe Cornish, Adam McKay, and Paul Rudd, Ant-Man is produced by Kevin Feige. The film stars Rudd as Scott Lang/Ant-Man, Michael Douglas as Ant-Man suit creator Hank Pym, Evangeline Lilly as Pym’s daughter, and Corey Stoll as the villain Yellowjacket. Its official Los Angeles premier is June 29, with wide release beginning July 17.
