Fantastic Four will arrive in UK cinemas on August 6 and in the Us on August 7.
We've got a whole new take on Marvel's First Family
In case it wasn't clear from the fresh faces of the cast (and the uniformly bad memories of the 2005 and 2007 films), this movie will reboot the franchise based on Marvel Comics' very first comic book series.
Miles Teller and Kate Mara have blasted the ''unwarranted hate'' the new 'Fantastic Four' cast received. The two actors have revealed that they got a lot of ''negative'' criticism when they - along with Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell - were announced as the stars taking over from the roles made famous by Jessica Alba, Chris Evans, Ioan Gruffudd and Michael Chiklis. Kate said: ''I was very surprised at first, before any trailers were out, how negative people were without seeing anything.'' Miles added: ''That is true. A lot of just unwarranted hate...'' However, the stars added that the public perception switched once the trailer for the film coming out this month was released. Speaking to MTV, Kate said: ''Then that very quickly changed, when we actually showed some footage. So that was a nice thing.'' Michael also revealed why he and the rest of the »
Before we even jump into the details, it’s necessary to point out that this is a serious rumor. In fact, it comes from IMDb user acrazey57 (via Bloody Disgusting) who has a thing for sharing “alternative” and “dream" casts. Now that you know what we’re getting into, acrazey57 shared an American Horror Story: Hotel character breakdown and while it probably isn't the real deal, it is interesting. At this point, we know that Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, Lady Gaga, Chloë Sevigny, Wes Bentley, Matt Bomer and Cheyenne Jackson are all on board, but this list also brings back Ahs vets Kathy Bates, Finn Wittrock, Lily Rabe, Angela Bassett, Denis O’Hare, Frances Conroy, Grace Gummer, Michael Chiklis and Christine Estabrook as well as possible newcomers Michelle Pfeiffer, Alexander Skarsgård, Tammy Blanchard and Steven Weber. That’s a big list right there. Sure, Ahs is know for its epic ensembles, »

After a long, long build-up, TV’s Golden Age is having its Mel Rodriguez moment; within the past few months, the distinctively cuddly-sized actor has occupied critical roles in not one but three acclaimed series. First, he was seen as Patsy de le Cerda, the hapless head nurse on HBO’s hospital comedy, Getting On. Then he popped up again as the short con accomplice of young Saul Goodman on AMC’s Breaking Bad prequel, “Better Call Saul.” And finally, he made a surprise entrance as Todd, the incarnation of the “Last Man on Earth”s nightmare. We caught up with him by phone as he took a break from “doody duties,” tending to his three month old daughter, Stella. Hitfix: Suddenly, all my favorite shows are centered around Mel Rodriguez. How did this happen? I don’t know man, I really don’t. I’m the luckiest guy in the world. »

It's offical. The Thing got an upgrade for the reboot of the Fantastic Four franchise, and he’s (thankfully) a lot less orange this time around.
Jamie Bell (Billy Elliot, The Adventures of Tintin) takes over the role of Ben Grimm – a.k.a. The Thing – from “The Shield”’s Michael Chiklis for August’s larger-than-life, universe-jumping retelling of the Fantastic Four. Joining Bell are Whiplash’s Miles Teller as Mister Fantastic, Kate Mara ("House of Cards") as Invisible Woman, and Michael B. Jordan (Fruitvale Station) as the Human Torch.
After the 2005’s Fantastic Four and 2007’s Rise of the Silver Surfer failed to win over its core audience, fans were skeptical of another big screen adaptation of their beloved Stan Lee-penned comic book.

The first trailer for 20th Century Fox’s new “Fantastic Four” only gave a quick glimpse of Jamie Bell as The Thing, but now fans of the Marvel character can stare at the latest design in all of its rocky glory. On Thursday, the studio released three new stills from director Josh Trank‘s reboot of the franchise, and a close-up of the mutant previously played by Michael Chiklis (“The Shield”) was one of them. Miles Teller plays Mister Fantastic, Michael B. Jordan stars up as the Human Torch and Kate Mara is the Invisible Woman, while Toby Kebbell plays villain Dr. »

20th Century Fox has taken an odd approach to officially unveiling the new Thing from their Fantastic Four remake. And perhaps its because they're not too proud of it? We got our first look courtesy of a leaked photo that exposed one of The Thing stand-in puppets being used on set. Next, The Thing appeared in a giant wall-sized movie poster spotted in the U.K. Now, U.K. publication Empire magazine has released the first studio sanctioned look at the rock monstrosity...And it's not that impressive?
The story in this new take on the classic Marvel comic book centers on four young outsiders who teleport to an alternate and dangerous universe, which alters their physical form in shocking ways. Their lives irrevocably upended, the team must learn to harness their daunting new abilities and work together to save Earth from a former friend turned enemy. In the three new photos, »
20th Century Fox has finally released the first official picture of The Thing from the upcoming Fantastic Four reboot and unlike the previous two films based on the Marvel comic book series the actor is not inside a rubber suit as they have gone full blown CGI this time around. Personally I didn't think the rubber suit Michael Chiklis wore in the last couple was all that bad, but the motion-capture CGI used to turn Jamie Bell into this new iteration will likely be an improvement thanks to the advancements in technology. The pictures come courtesy of Empire magazine with two more included just below, but obviously the first look at The Thing is the major draw. I have to assume this means a new trailer for the upcoming Aug. 7 release is around the corner as Fantastic Four will attempt to play the end of the summer season, hoping to »

Just last month, we got our first good look at the front of The Thing in an international banner for Josh Trank's comic book reboot of Fantastic Four. But the photo wasn't very good quality, so we're happy to point your way to three new photos from the late summer release, one that gives us a much better glimpse at Jamie Bell as the rocky hero. Honestly, he doesn't look too far removed from the version Michael Chiklis played in Fox's old Fantastic Four franchise, though he looks more jagged and less rubbery. In addition, there's a new photo of the team as astronauts, and Miles Teller as Reed Richards getting stretched a bit. Here's the new photos from Josh Trank's Fantastic Four from Empire: You can also watch the first teaser trailer for Trank's Fantastic Four right here.

So far, in the build-up to Josh Trank’s reboot of the Fantastic Four, we've had a teaser trailer, a poster, another poster, and some character featurettes. Now, here's the first look at Jamie Bell as The Thing, as well as two other stills from the new superhero reboot.We’ve had detailed looks at Miles Teller as Reed Richards, Aka the stretchy Mr. Fantastic, Kate Mara as Sue Storm/the Invisible Woman, and Michael B. Jordan as the hot-headed Johnny Storm/The Human Torch. And we’ve even seen Jamie Bell as Ben Grimm, the fourth member of the quartet who are imbued with superpowers after travelling to an alternate dimension.But we haven’t had a good look at Grimm post-trip and post-transformation… until, as Trailer Voice Man is wont to say, now. Ladies and gentlemen, behold… the ever-lovin’ blue-eyed Thing.It’s a world away from the »
Are you ready to meet The Thing? The hulking Ben Grimm in Josh Trank's Fantastic Four reboot has remarkably kept himself in the shadows. It's difficult to keep something like a giant rock monster away from the public spotlight. But now 20th Century Fox has unleashed the beast in a brand new photo from the movie. Jamie Bell, are you in there? It's hard to think of someone as slim and trim as the star of Turn voicing a superhero of this magnitude, but here he is, nonetheless. At least he looks far better than Michael Chiklis' run, right? Empire magazine was the first to reveal this image, which does not look like like a rubberized suit. We've only seen bits and pieces of the new Thing in the trailers -- we saw him break forth from his stone coccoon and we got a good look at his »
In an era where Jared Leto cutting his hair to play The Joker in "Suicide Squad" warrants coverage, it feels a bit old school to be writing about an actual film still that has something new in it. But then again, Josh Trank isn't playing by any rules but his own when it comes to "Fantastic Four." Empire has a handful of new stills today, but the one to pay attention to is the first look at Jamie Bell as The Thing. And yes, it's an improvement from the Michael Chiklis iteration of the character in the previous movies, but that's due to the leaps and bounds made in technology, with the VFX team using mo-cap this time around. So check it out, along with a couple other new snaps, and see you on August 7th. »

"It is true that everything slows down to a standstill and you can't really feel your extremities," Michael Chiklis tells Gold Derby's Tom O'Neil about his historic Emmy win as Best Drama Actor for "The Shield" (2002). (Watch their webcam chat below.) "It's really an out-of-body experience, particularly if you're not ready for it, if you really aren't prepared. And I was not." Chiklis' shocking victory turned out to be an Emmy breakthrough -- the first time that a non-pay cable channel won one of the top Emmy categories. Now Chiklis is once again in the Emmy spotlight, this time as Best Movie/Mini Supporting Actor for his role on "American Horror Story: Freak Show." Have you made your Emmy predictions yet?

Following yesterday's new poster for Fantastic Four, which showed a vague display of powers from the quartet of Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell, we have a new look at the team, but this one reveals a bit more. While the teaser trailer and even yesterday's poster have obscured our look at The Thing from any angle other than behind is naked stone body, an international banner has gone up that gives us our first good lock at the clobbering hero from the front. And he looks...exactly like you'd expect him to look. Hopefully he's less of a punchline than the one Michael Chiklis played before. Look! Here's the international banner for Fantastic Four from Instagram (via Superhero Hype): You can also watch the first teaser trailer for Trank's Fantastic Four right here. Fantastic Four is directed by Josh Trank (Chronicle) and written by »

There's a reason studios should stop trying to hide elements of their films from the online audience, and it's because the first look fans get at something you've been trying to hide should not be in the form of a washed out Instagram picture (via albertoheineken26), but that's the case when it comes to The Thing from Josh Trank's upcoming The Fantastic Four reboot as you can see below. What you can't tell is the human form of the giant rock man is played by Jamie Bell in the movie. Unlike the version played by Michael Chiklis in the previous attempts to bring the superhero family to life, this will be an all-cg creation and, I assume, more akin to the Hulk from The Avengers than the foam rubber character Chiklis played. I have to assume 20th Century Fox will try and release an official picture soon enough, but »

And throughout his mild-mannered opening monologue, the British comic repeatedly referenced his surprise at being chosen to succeed Craig Ferguson in CBS’ 12:37/11:37c weeknight slot and his belief that most Americans have no idea who he is.

PhotosAnna Friel Is on a Life-and-Death Odyssey in New NBC Drama
Premiering Sunday, April 5 at 10/9c, the Traffic-like thriller stars Anna Friel (Pushing Daisies) as Sergeant Odelle Ballard, an American soldier who, in the midst of a Seal Team Six-like takedown of an Al Qaeda leader, stumbles across enormously volatile intel. Soon afterwards, private military contractors arrive to take out Odelle’s entire unit, though she miraculously, secretly survives.

Following a ruling last month that the Television Academy would only consider half hour shows eligible for the comedy category at the Emmys, a panel of nine analysts have now begun handing down the rulings for exemptions in the selection process. The panel, which was set up to determine the category assignment of hour-long shows that appealed their placement in drama, has now ruled, as per Variety, that the Fox show Glee, the Showtime series Shameless, and the CW series Jane The Virgin can compete as comedies at the upcoming primetime Emmys. The decision will apply to all categories, from Acting to Directing, and so on.
One show that notably wasn’t granted a waiver, however, is the Netflix serial Orange Is The New Black. The series, which revolves around the inhabitants of a women’s prison, was categorised as a comedy at last year’s Primetime Emmys, where it picked up three wins. »
