Is this the plot for Josh Trank’s The Fantastic Four?

18 November 2014 10:33 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The mysterious Fantastic Four is still shrouded in mystery with no production photos, no trailers and not even official synopsis released ahead of its release next August. But, it seems there is a possible leak in 20th Century Fox and the plot is finally arrived on 4Chan (via Cbm)

Or is it?

“Reed is a genius convenience store clerk with Ben. Reed’s parents don’t care about him, and Ben’s dad is abusive. They’re good friends and have each other’s backs. Reed writes a paper for community college on teleportation that attracts the attention of Dr. Franklin Storm, CEO of the Baxter Building research center.

Storm has a son, Johnny, and an adoptive daughter, Sue, whose father, Storm’s old partner, died in an experiment gone wrong. Johnny and Sue are party kids, and Sue is particularly disdainful of science. Reed and Sue don’t get along at first. »

Full 'Fantastic Four' Reboot Story Details Revealed?

17 November 2014 4:20 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With its release less than nine months away, there is still very little official information out there regarding 20th Century Fox's The Fantastic Four reboot. Last week, we learned that the villainous Doctor Doom (Toby Kebbell) will not be known as Victor Von Doom, as seen in the original comics, but instead Victor Domashev, an anti-social programmer who is known as "Doom" on blogging sites. Today, a detailed plot rundown offers what could be the entire story for director Josh Trank's remake, which shows how Reed Richards and Ben Grimm first meet the Storm siblings.

There will be spoilers below, so read on at your own risk!

Naturally, this hasn't been confirmed by 20th Century Fox at this time, but this extended synopsis started making the rounds on Reddit and 4Chan over the weekend. Since we have no official plot details to compare it to, we're not sure if »

Closing-night Films at AFI Fest Often Score Oscar Noms

13 November 2014 10:07 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor 

Since opening Nov. 6 with the world premiere of J.C. Chandor’s A Most Violent Year, AFI Fest has hosted the world premieres of Ava DuVernay’s Selma, Rupert Wyatt’s The Gambler and Clint Eastwood’s American Sniper, but it’s also hosted a variety of festival favorites, including Bennett Miller’s Foxcatcher, which closes the festival tonight. Miller, a two-time Oscar nominee, received the best director award at the Cannes Film Festival following the film’s premiere. This biographical film is based on the true story of brothers and wrestling gold medalists Mark (Channing Tatum) and Dave Schultz (Mark Ruffalo) and their relationship with John du Pont (Steve Carell), which ultimately results in Dave’s murder. The film opens in theaters tomorrow. Twelve of the past 14 films to close AFI Fest have received Oscar nominations, two for best picture. Closing-night films at AFI Fest »

First Look: Benedict Arnold joins the fight in 'Turn'

12 November 2014 7:00 AM, PST | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

If the title of AMC's Revolutionary War drama didn't initially seem to encompass the events that unfolded in season one, it will be extremely self-evident in season two when Benedict Arnold, the most infamous traitor in American history, enters the fray. After whispers of Arnold's battlefield heroics popped up last season, British actor Owain Yeoman (The Mentalist) joins the cast as the notorious turncoat who conspired to betray the patriot cause and hand over the American stronghold at West Point in 1780. Combined with last year's mid-season debut of General George Washington (Ian Kahn), Arnold's introduction is oozing with dramatic possibility. »

What on Earth is going on with the Fantastic Four reboot?

11 November 2014 7:26 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

In the wake of the Doctor Doom news, we look at what we know about the Fantastic Four reboot so far...

This article contains mild spoilers for 2015's Fantastic Four movie.

Over the past day or so, news surfaced about Doctor Doom, the villain in the forthcoming Fantastic Four reboot. Actor Toby Kebbell, who plays him, revealed that his Doom would be very different from the one in the Marvel comics; the character is, he said, an “anti-social programmer” and blogger whose internet handle happens to be - you’ve guessed it - Doom.

Needless to say, this latest sliver of news hasn’t gone down especially well in some quarters, and comments sections on websites all over the world are full of jokes like “Fantastic 4Chan”. For Fox, this seems to be the latest in a string of poorly-received news stories, and all from a project which - on »

Fantastic Four reboot's Doctor Doom is an "anti-social programmer"

11 November 2014 3:03 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The Fantastic Four reboot film will reimagine Doctor Doom as an "anti-social programmer".

Actor Toby Kebbell - who will portray the villain in the film - revealed director Josh Trank's vision for the classic villain in an interview with Collider.

The character will no longer be known as Victor Von Doom in the 20th Century Fox movie.

"He's Victor Domashev, not Victor Von Doom in our story," said Kebbell. "And I'm sure I'll be sent to jail for telling you that.

"The Doom in ours - I'm a programmer. Very anti-social programmer. And on blogging sites I'm 'Doom'."

The actor also commented on Trank's "ultra-real" approach to the classic Marvel Comics property.

"Yeah, it was cool, man," he said. "Josh, the whole deal, the lo-fi way he did it, the ultra-real.

"It was just nice to do that. It was nice to be feeling like we had to come »

Tony Kebbell calls new Doctor Doom a “very anti-social programmer”, reveals he is not Victor Von Doom

10 November 2014 11:18 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The new Fantastic Four reboot has been clouded in mystery. Very few details have leaked and there seems to be a lot of curiosity around this new, younger skewing version of the team. Changes from director Josh Trank should surprise no one. Michael B. Jordan’s casting as Johnny Storm a.k.a. The Human Torch set off a maelstrom of debate, and now we have some details around the new Doctor Doom courtesy of the man himself, Toby Kebbell (via Collider)

“He’s Victor Domashev, not Victor Von Doom in our story,” states Kebbell. “And I’m sure I’ll be sent to jail for telling you that. The Doom in ours—I’m a programmer. Very anti-social programmer. And on blogging sites I’m ‘Doom'”.

So instead of the master scientist, dark arts dabbling, Lord of Latveria, we’re getting Doctor 4Chan? The more I hear about the new Fantastic Four, »

Fantastic Four: Toby Kebbell drops surprising villain details

10 November 2014 11:00 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Doctor Doom in Josh Trank's new Fantastic Four film will be a little different than you may expect...

Fox's reboot of the Fantastic Four movies, which is being helmed by Chronicle director Josh Trank, arrives in cinemas next August, with a cast that includes Kate Mara, Michael B Jordan, Jamie Bell, Ben Grimm and Miles Teller.

And then there's Toby Kebbell, who was part of a big hit Fox movie this year with Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes. He's signed up to play Doctor Doom in the new Fantastic Four film, and he's given an interview to Collider where he's revealed a key deviation that the film will be taking from the original source material.

Talking about the new origins of Doctor Doom, Kebbell said that "he’s Victor Domashev, not Victor Von Doom in our story. And I’m sure I’ll be sent to jail »

'Fantastic Four' Reboot Gives Doctor Doom a New Name and Origin

10 November 2014 6:27 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When The Fantastic Four reboot hits theaters next year, fans will be getting a much younger team of superheroes, with a cast led by Miles Teller, Michael B. Jordan, Kate Mara and Jamie Bell, and a very different super villain than we've seen before. While promoting Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' Blu-ray and DVD release next month, star Toby Kebbell, who plays the new Doctor Doom, revealed some surprising details about his character.

When asked what it was like to play this iconic villain, Toby Kebbell revealed that the character is drastically changed from the comics, including his original birth name and origin story.

"I'm excited to see it too, and my nerves really... The only thing I can tease you about is what I worked on most was the voice because nobody-even in the cartoons, when I was watching them I was like, 'So where's he from? »

Snowpiercer Blu-Ray Review

8 November 2014 9:32 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Audiences will likely be divided on Bong Joon-ho’s Snowpiercer, a brutal, bold and beautiful film that flies by, even at a hefty 126 minutes – so long as you’re willing to climb on board with its somewhat ludicrous premise. There are those who will struggle to swallow the basic set-up – that a failed climate change experiment plunged the world into another ice age, the only survivors of which had managed to clambor onto a fortified train that uses a perpetual motion engine to endlessly travel the globe. To those people, I say this: do your best to suspend your disbelief, because where Bong goes from there is truly spectacular.

In big-budget moviemaking today, there are Big Dumb Fun popcorn spectacles, slick and intelligent blockbusters and then, much more rarely, productions like Snowpiercer, which seem to operate in a different realm entirely. You see, Snowpiercer isn’t just a smart film. »

42 upcoming comic book movies - and when to expect them

5 November 2014 9:30 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

When’s that comic book movie coming out, with the ant-sized man? This and all similar questions answered in our comic book movie calendar.

Comic book fans of the world - were you planning on spending your spare cash on anything other than cinema visits and DVD box-sets for the next six years? Well tough, because Hollywood has other ideas.

Ever since Bryan Singer’s X-Men movie jump-started the comic book movie trend in 2000 (building on the stellar work of Richard Donner and Tim Burton in the decades prior), Fox, Sony, Warner Bros., Disney and Marvel Studios have all been repeatedly cashing-in on the resurgent popularity of capes, cowls and anything ending in ‘Man’.

Now, the sheer size of the comic book movie-making world has reached a critical mass. There are now seven such films (at least) slated for every year between 2016 and 2019. There’s also a few confirmed for 2020 already, »

New on DVD/Blu-ray: 'Snowpiercer,' 'Sex Tape,' 'The Purge: Anarchy' and More

Snowpiercer - Radius TWC/Anchor Bay - Blu-ray and DVD Director: Bong Joon-ho Cast: Chris Evans, Song Kang-ho, Jamie BellJohn Hurt,Tilda Swinton. Full cast + crew 2014 has been a banner year for science fiction, and yet there's one movie that still stands apart from the crowd: Bong Joon-ho's Snowpiercer, about a revolt on a train full of the last people on Earth that continually circles the globe lest it freeze to death and the human race dies. It's precisely the kind of weird, subversive, high-concept sci-fi that's so hard to find these days, because it takes a somewhat wacky premise and commits to it without over explaining itself or waiting for the audience to catch up. Chris Evans is just fantastic, turning his Captain America...

Why We Haven't Seen Anything from the Fantastic Four Movie

21 October 2014 7:31 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Josh Trank's Fantastic Four reboot finished shooting awhile back, but we have barely seen anything from the film. This is incredibly surprising, especially when we see stuff from Batman v Superman and Star Wars: Episode VII leaking almost every day. Fox must actually threaten to kill people if they leak anything. I got banned from Facebook for three days because of a set photo of Thing that I posted. I'm really curious to see what Trank and the studio have done with this classic Marvel superhero team.

In a recent interview with producer Simon Kinberg, we learn the reason why we haven't seen anything official yet. This is what he said to ComicBook.com:

"We’re putting it together now, and one of the important things, because this Fantastic Four is a reboot, and is such a different tonality and vibe from those other films, we want to make »

Simon Kinberg on when we might expect to see footage from The Fantastic Four reboot

21 October 2014 2:49 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Writer-producer Simon Kinberg has spoken about the upcoming reboot The Fantastic Four whilst promoting the home entertainment release of X-Men: Days of Future Past, specifically when we might expect to see the first footage from the film…

“We’re putting it together now, and one of the important things, because this Fantastic Four is a reboot, and is such a different tonality and vibe from those other films, we want to make sure that the first thing we put out really expresses the voice of the movie, and isn’t compromised by not having visual effects ready, or anything like that. I don’t actually know when [a trailer is] coming out, but I’ve seen all the footage from the movie. I was there for pretty much the whole shoot. It is a very different film from the others, and one that I think is very different from other superhero movies. It’s a very emotional, »

'Fantastic Four' Producer Reveals Why We Haven't Seen Anything

20 October 2014 6:34 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Writer-producer Simon Kinberg is currently in post-production on the 20th Century Fox superhero adventure The Fantastic Four, and everything we've heard about the reboot thus far makes it clear that this is vastly different than any other incarnation of these superheroes that have come before it. With the release less than a year away, many fans have been wondering when the first footage will debut. When asked that very question in a recent interview, Simon Kinberg reveals that he doesn't known when the first trailer will arrive. But he has a good reason why we haven't seen anything yet.

The team behind The Fantastic Four reboot want to make sure the "voice" of the movie is fully intact when it is introduced to the public. Simon Kinberg explains:
