"Fantastic Four" - Do The Right 'Thing'

11 December 2014 5:02 PM, PST | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

According to motion capture choreographer Terry Notary ("Warcraft"), previously the 'movement coach' for actor Jamie Bell aka 'The Thing' on director Josh Trank's "Fantastic Four" reboot, 'Ben Grimm' is basically "...a kid trapped in a rock..."

"There’s very, very little expression in the face," said Notary, whose credits also include "Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes" and "Avatar". "Everything has to live through the soul and the eyes. Everything. The subtleties of the physicality when standing there...you’re a rock. You’re made of rock, so you can’t be super subtle but you can be if you sense that emotion coming out through the soul and the eyes.

"We had (Jamie) just holding this neutral expression and just pouring the soul out of his eyes while walking through this space, while obviously being grounded with weight and mass and gravitas that's so important and does take a lot of work. »

Miles Teller responds to criticism of The Fantastic Four reboot

5 December 2014 2:25 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

There’s been a lot said about the upcoming Josh Trank directed reboot The Fantastic Four in recent weeks since Toby Kebbell revealed some plot details about his character Dr. Doom, and most of it has been fairly negative.

Speaking recently to MTV’s Josh Horowitz, Miles Teller – who plays leader of the group Reed Richards – defended the reboot saying “We’re proud of what we did.”

The lack of marketing and unnecessary secrecy from Fox has also been another negative factor for the movie according to the internet and Teller responded by saying “If you want to go on the internet and find out what every person has to say about it, it’s very easy to find that and you can kinda get caught up in the whole thing.”

Teller also spoke about when we might see some footage, “We’re right on schedule…we shot the whole »

Here's the Official Synopsis for the 'Fantastic Four' Reboot

4 December 2014 8:30 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Director Josh Trank's upcoming "Fantastic Four" reboot now has an official synopsis, which is slightly different from its comic origins.

Per Rotten Tomatoes:

The Fantastic Four, a contemporary re-imagining of Marvel's original and longest-running superhero team, 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.

That summary popped up on the review site earlier this week, but was not confirmed as authentic until IGN reached out to Fox. The studio said that that synopsis was indeed accurate, echoing comments made by cast members about the new direction the film was taking versus previous iterations of the characters.

New Human Torch Michael B. Jordan previously told IGN that the flick would be "grounded, »

4 December 2014 8:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Julie Walters is one of those people who really does seem like a national treasure. She's done it all, from comedy to drama, over an amazing career that earned her a BAFTA Fellowship earlier this year.

We were lucky enough to pop along to a Q&A with Julie last night - launching BAFTA's new live strand A Life in Television - and she was funny, interesting and always entertaining. We've collected together just 18 amazing things we learned - from why Educating Rita made her cry to her crush on Hugh Bonneville to why dancing and Julie do not mix. Read on for all that and much more...

1. She cried when she first saw Educating Rita because she thought she was "terrible".

"I'd done Educating Rita on stage, Willy Russell's play, and then Lewis Gilbert came along and said, 'Do you want to be in a film, darling?' »

Fantastic Four reboot's 'contemporary reimagining' synopsis revealed

3 December 2014 11:43 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

A new synopsis of The Fantastic Four has been revealed.

20th Century Fox has confirmed the accuracy of the short breakdown posted on Rotten Tomatoes (via IGN).

"The Fantastic Four, a contemporary re-imagining of Marvel's original and longest-running superhero team, centres on four young outsiders who teleport to an alternate and dangerous universe, which alters their physical form in shocking ways," reads the description.

"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."

The classic origin of the Marvel Comics team was that they received powers due to exposure to cosmic radiation.

Set in the early 1960s, Stan Lee and Jack Kirby's comic saw the team racing to beat the Soviet Union into space in the rocket designed by Mr Fantastic.

Toby Kebbell recently revealed that his character - the villain Doctor »

'Fantastic Four' Exclusive: How Jamie Bell Will Become the Thing

3 December 2014 4:43 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

When it comes to motion-capture performances, the number one name associated with it is Andy Serkis, but there's another everyone should know: Terry Notary. His official job title is often "movement choreographer," but what that really means is that he teaches actors how to shed their human baggage and truly become whatever character they're playing. In recent year's he's not only coached entire teams of actors in these movies, but he's played Rocket in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, the Goblin King in The Hobbit, and the aliens in Attack the Block. However, one of his most recent jobs is one we won't see until next summer: He helped Jamie Bell figure out how to become the Thing in the new Fantastic Four movie. When we spoke to Notary for this...

Jamie Bell's 'Ben Grimm/The Thing' Mocap Coach Talks The Fantastic Four

3 December 2014 10:30 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Alongside motion-capture guru Andy Serkis, Terry Notary has served as a movement choreographer on several high-profile projects, including next year's The Fantastic Four. Speaking recently with Movies.com, Notary discussed his contribution to the Fox/Marvel reboot and work with actor Jamie Bell, who plays Ben Grimm aka the Thing. "I'd worked with Jamie on Tin-tin, so they had me come out and work with him on that character a little bit." When asked how does he find the movement for The Thing, Notary explained, "I was talking to Jamie about it and thought it was just a whiteface character. Everything is pulled out through the soul. There's very, very little expression in the face, if any at all, so everything has to live through the soul and the eyes. Everything.

The Fantastic Four Reboot Official Synopsis Unveiled

3 December 2014 10:02 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

The last time the super-powered quartet known as the Fantastic Four graced the big screen, filmgoers knew Chris Evans as the borderline reckless Johnny Storm, aka the Human Torch, a high contrast to his current turn as the responsible Captain America. The Fantastic Four reboot hits theaters from Fox next summer, but fans can get a taste of what’s to come with the recent reveal of the film’s synopsis.

20th Century Fox confirmed via IGN that the following description that appeared on Rotten Tomatoes is indeed the official synopsis of The Fantastic Four reboot:

The Fantastic Four, a contemporary re-imagining of Marvel’s original and longest-running superhero team, centers on four young outsiders who teleport to an alternate and dangerous universe, which alters their physical form in shocking ways.

3 December 2014 9:04 AM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

It might not hit cinemas until August next year, but 20th Century Fox has been remarkably withholding when it comes to imagery or footage from Josh Trank’s The Fantastic Four. But there is, at least, an official synopsis at last.As released by the studio and reported by Rotten Tomatoes, the film’s basic pitch runs thus (trailer voice on, folks): "The Fantastic Four, a contemporary reimagining of Marvel's original and longest-running superhero team, centres 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."It appears to be a new take on the origin story for the heroes – here in the shape of Miles Teller (Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic), Kate Mara »

The Fantastic Four Plot Details Confirmed

3 December 2014 6:44 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Perhaps no comic-book movie in the works has suffered as much derision from fans ahead of release as Josh Trank’s upcoming Fantastic Four reboot, which the director has promised will be “grounded” and approach the characters in a new light. A few weeks ago, possible plot details for the Fox tentpole leaked online, and many fans were infuriated by what they revealed. Doctor Doom as an “anti-social Eastern European computer programmer and hacktivist?” A mood ring-esque Human Torch?? “Genius convenience store clerk” Reed Richards???

Unfortunately, the nightmare’s not over for those fans angered by the plot details, as IGN has confirmed with Fox that at least the following part of the leaked description is accurate:

Official Plot Synopsis for the Fantastic Four Reboot

2 December 2014 11:16 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Fans just do not seem to be happy with anything they've seen or heard about director Josh Trank's Fantastic Four reboot. There really seems to be a lot of hate building up for it. There have been some things that I like, and other things that I don't regarding what I've heard about the movie. But I am going to keep an open mind. I want the movie to be good. We're just going to have to wait and see how it turns out. 

A couple of weeks ago a possible plot synopsis hit the internet. We still don't know if that is legit or not, but if you want to read it, click here. We now have an official plot synopsis that the studio released on Rotten Tomatoes. This is the first official story information that we've seen so far for the movie.

Marvel blows up new Fantastic Four film cast

1 December 2014 3:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The latest issue of The Punisher sees three of the Fantastic Four reboot film stars apparently fall victim to an explosion.

The Marvel Comics series features an abrupt end for Kate Mara, Miles Teller and Jamie Bell when they cameo in the comic (via Newsarama).

Writer Nathan Edmondson assured readers that the comic is not making a "petty statement" against the upcoming 20th Century Fox film on Twitter.

The characters can be seen talking about the absent Michael B Jordan - who will play the Human Torch in director Josh Trank's film - shortly before meeting their demise.

Mitch Gerads illustrated the scene in The Punisher #12.

Marvel and Fox have denied rumours that there is a rivalry between the two companies over the film, which has been attributed to the decision to end the Fantastic Four comic.

Co-star Toby Kebbell recently revealed that his version of Doctor Doom will »

'The Fantastic Four' Official Synopsis Revealed

28 November 2014 11:21 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The Rotten Tomatoes page for 20th Century Fox's The Fantastic Four reboot has revealed the first official synopsis. An extended and unofficial synopsis released earlier this month revealed that the title characters access another dimension, a plot point which has been confirmed by this synopsis. Take a look at this plot rundown below, then read on for more information.

"The Fantastic Four, a contemporary re-imagining of Marvel's original and longest-running superhero team, 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. (C) Fox"

The "former friend turned enemy" is most likely Toby Kebbell's Doctor Doom, who we reported last week will be named Victor Doomashev, instead of the character's original comic book name Victor Von Doom. »

First official synopsis for The Fantastic Four

We’ve seen absolutely nothing in the way of promotional material from 20th Century Fox’s superhero reboot The Fantastic Four, but we do now have an official synopsis for the Josh Trank-directed film, which has made its way online via Rotten Tomatoes. Of course, this being The Fantastic Four, it’s giving very, very little away…

Marvel Kills Fantastic Four Actors in Punished Comic Book

27 November 2014 9:56 PM, PST | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Marvel would love to get back the film rights to its superheroes, but it may be a while before 20th Century Fox and Sony Pictures let the rights revert back. So, in a way, it helps Marvel if films like "Spider-Man" and "X-Men" fail. It was recently reported that Marvel decided to cancel the "Fantastic Four" comic books, likely to hurt the popularity of the characters and the box office results of Fox's upcoming "Fantastic Four" reboot. And now, we have a look at the new issue of Marvel's "Punisher" comic book, which features characters who look exactly like Miles Teller, Jamie Bell and Kate Mara, the actors in the reboot. They are sitting around, talking about Mike (obviously Michael B. Jordan) being late and that Trang (obviously director Josh Trank) is making a sequel. Suddenly their building explodes, killing all the actors. Check everything out below. Images: (click to »

Whoa! New 'Punisher' Comic Kills Cast of the 'Fantastic Four' Reboot

26 November 2014 2:07 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Earlier in the fall, we reported on the tension between 20th Century Fox and Marvel escalating to the point that the comic book company was ending their run of Fantastic Four comics in an effort to dilute interest in the forthcoming feature film reboot from Chronicle director Josh Trank. Indeed, the comic book has been ended for the time being, but there's no indication that this was done with malicious intent. However, you might raise an eyebrow when you see some frames from Punisher #12, the latest issue written by Nathan Edmondson and drawn by Mitchell Gerads. What unfolds is funny, but pretty messed up. Here's the frames in question from Marvel Comics Punisher #12 (via Comic Book Movie): Did you pick up on that? The name "Trang" is clearly a reference to Josh Trank, director of the forthcoming reboot of Fantastic Four, and the three people seen on the page certainly resemble Miles Teller, »

Let's not forget about Tilda Swinton in 'Snowpiercer' for Best Supporting Actress

26 November 2014 12:14 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It's turning out to be another great year for Tilda Swinton. In February, "The Grand Budapest Hotel" premiered to raves at the Berlin Film Festival and made a ton of money in the months following. Cannes 2013 player "Only Lovers Left Alive" gained more critical traction as it continued to play around the world, eventually earning Swinton a surprise Best Female Lead Independent Spirit Award nomination. She filmed a key role in Judd Apatow's new Amy Schumer comedy "Trainwrecked," set for theaters in 2015, and re-teamed with old buddy George Clooney and the Coen brothers for the comedy "Hail Caesar!," which is currently filming and scheduled to debut in 2016. Perhaps most importantly, her performance in Bong Joon-ho's "Snowpiercer" finally saw the light of day stateside. Following a summer 2013 debut in Bong's native South Korea, the post-apocalyptic thriller was released in most of the world beginning in January and eventually found its »
