The Hey U Guys Instant Watching Guide – July 28th 2014

4 hours ago | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

The Killing was an American remake from AMC based on the nordic noir show popularised over here by showings on BBC 4. The Us version moved things to Seattle where it rained constantly and revolved around the murder of Rosie Larson. Unfairly compared to Twin Peaks when it debuted, it was nonetheless something of a hit on Channel 4 for at least two seasons. I lost track of it around the mid-point of season two, not because I didn’t like it, I enjoyed it lots despite its grimness but it became impossible to keep up with the weekly scheduled showings and 4Od was, and still is not very good. From what I hear season two wrapped up the murder of Larson and season three moved on to a new mystery which was just as gripping.

The reason I mention this anyway is that like Arrested Development, Netflix has picked up »

9 Biggest Surprises of Comic-Con 2014

18 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Some are still buzzing with energy, while others are a little sad that it's all over for another year. There are even those dour sourpusses who feel this year was nothing but lackluster. Even if that's the case, Comic-Con 2014 wasn't without its surprises. Maybe there weren't as many as in years past. And the fact that neither Marvel nor DC announced any of its upcoming titles still stings. But, dang that footage! Both studios are clearly on the path to releasing two of the biggest movies of all time! It's clear that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Avengers: Age of Ultron will be vying to knock Avatar off its perch as the top grossing movie of all time. But seeing the latest and first footage from these superhero behemoths wasn't the only fun studios had with their fans and ever-expanding audience. There were a couple of curveballs thrown »

First look at The Thing from Fantastic Four reboot

27 July 2014 10:40 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The reference model for the new The Thing in Josh Trank's Fantastic Four movie has landed online...

Josh Trank and his team are currently hard at work on the big screen reboot of the Fantastic Four, which is set to arrive in cinemas next June. Thus far though, there's been very little from the production itself, once the dust had settled over the fan-splitting casting for the movie.

However, this is worth a look: it's a photo of The Thing from the new Fantastic Four movie. More to the point, it's the reference model for the character that's being used on the shoot.

Jamie Bell is playing The Thing/Ben Grimm in the new movie, incidentally.

The image came to light on the Twitter feed of Justified Films, although it's now been deleted. It has appeared pretty much everywhere else, though...

The Fantastic Four Skips out on Comic-Con But Offers a Glimpse at The Thing

26 July 2014 4:30 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

  Apparently Fox decided not to bring any marketing for The Fantastic Four to Comic-Con this weekend, even though the Josh Trank-directed picture is currently shooting in Louisiana and will debut before next year's convention.  However, a very unofficial image has leaked out into the interwebs that shows what is apparently the film's new version of The Thing.  Jamie Bell is playing the rocky humanoid hero, aka Ben Grimm, and thankfully it looks like he'll be doing so through motion capture.  It looks pretty good, but the bar was previously set laughably low by poor Michael Chiklis' rock suit in the last effort.  Hit the jump to check it out. Also starring Michael B. Jordan as Human Torch, Kate Mara as Invisible Girl, Miles Teller as Mr. Fantastic, and Toby Kebbell as Dr. Doom, The Fantastic Four is set to open June 19, 2015.   Here's a look at the (top half, »

Is This Our First Look At The Thing From Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four?

26 July 2014 9:21 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Fox has aroused our curiosity at its Comic-Con panel last night by opting not to include anything for Josh Trank’s upcoming Fantastic Four reboot, which finds Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell stepping into the key roles of Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic, Sue Storm/The Invisible Woman, Johnny Storm/The Human Torch and Ben Grimm/The Thing (respectively). However, we may get a few scoops out of the tentpole yet.

A new image (above) has hit the web, depicting what looks to be the the reference CGI bust of the Thing being used on Trank’s film. A mysterious Twitter account called @justifiedfilms, which has since been deleted, tweeted out the pic, which of course has been immortalized on the web. For those who don’t know, a reference bust is essentially a placeholder marker intended for the computer animators, who use it to then »

First Look? Alleged Photo Of The Thing From ‘The Fantastic Four’ Surfaces

26 July 2014 8:38 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

If you were paying attention to the online chatter about Comic-Con last night—and we don’t blame you if you weren’t—you probably noticed a lot of griping. The consensus seemed to be that 20th Century Fox's presentation was underwhelming. Fans were asking where the promotion for “The Fantastic Four” could have been (for that matter, Paramount did not produce any “Terminator: Genesis” promotion). “How hard is it," the thinking went, "for Paramount or 20th Century Fox to make a poster, a teaser trailer or unveil some costumes?" Well before this weekend, the studio confirmed that director Josh Trank and his cast—currently shooting in Louisiana—would not appear at Comic-Con. But it looks like someone tried to slightly counter or address the mounting complaints. A mystery Twitter account @justifiedfilms (which has since been deleted) tweeted out a picture of what looks like to be the reference CGI bust of the Thing, »

First look at The Thing in The Fantastic Four?

26 July 2014 2:18 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As promised by writer-producer Simon Kinberg, The Fantastic Four was absent from 20th Century Fox’s Hall H presentation at Comic-Con yesterday. However, fans wanting to get a glimpse of Marvel’s First Family may be interested in an image that has arrived online through Justified Films on Twitter, which claims to show how Jamie Bell’s Ben Grimm will appear as The Thing in the Josh Trank-directed reboot. Take a look via Cbm…

The Fantastic Four is set for release on June 19th 2015, with a cast that includes Miles Teller (Divergent) as Mr. Fantastic, Kate Mara (American Horror Story) as the Invisible Woman, Michael B. Jordan (Chronicle) as the Human Torch, Jamie Bell (Nymphomaniac) as The Thing, Toby Kebbell (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes) as Doctor Doom, Reg E. Cathey (The Wire) as Dr. Storm, and Tim Blake Nelson (The Incredible Hulk) as Harvey Elder.

Leaked Photo of the Thing in 'Fantastic Four' Reboot?!

25 July 2014 11:33 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Director Josh Trank was rumored to be bringing The Fantastic Four reboot cast to Hall H today as a surprise during the Fox panel. That didn't happen. But we may have a special treat for fans anyway. It seems a disgruntled crewmember has taken a spy pic of The Thing, sharing it on Twitter. Take a look:

Is this what Jamie Bell will look like when he transforms into The Thing? We're not sure, but it's a pretty good fake if that's what it is. The above picture appears to be a set sculpt of Ben Grimm after he transforms into his mighty alter ego. It will be used for lighting reference while shooting against green screen, and »

Is This The Thing From Josh Trank's Fantastic Four Reboot?

25 July 2014 7:18 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Justified Films have posted an image that appears our first look at The Thing, Ben Grimm's rock-like transformed state, from Josh Trank's Fantastic Four reboot. This looks to be a on set sculpt that visual effects crews use for lighting references when they go back and insert the character digitally. Earlier today, 20th Century Fox surprisingly chose not to include any material from Trank's Fantastic Four at their Comic-Con panel, but instead we have this to chew on. And for me, this is probably better than anything they could've officially released.

Movie News - New Fantastic Four (With Kate Mara) Is Different from Previous Superhero Movies

23 July 2014 10:06 AM, PDT | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Movie News - The new 'Fantastic Four' will be ''different from other comic book films''. Scriptwriter Simon Kinberg has promised the ambitious reboot of the superhero franchise will be unlike anything fans have seen in previous movies in the genre, such as 'The Avengers' and the 'X-Men' films. He told Latino-Review.com: ''We are hopefully going to be refining the way the people see the 'Fantastic Four' movies. There are so many things we are doing different from the previous film and so many things different from other comic books films.'' The Josh Trank-directed movie will be a stark departure from the critically mauled 2005 and 2007 'Fantastic Four' films which starred Jessica Alba and Chris Evans. The new take will star Kate Mara as Sue Storm/The Invisible Woman, Miles Teller as Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic, Michael B. Jordan as Johnny Storm/The Human Torch and »

Simon Kinberg on The Fantastic Four, X-Men: Apocalypse and Gambit

23 July 2014 2:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

If you were hoping to get a first look at Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell as the Fantastic Four at Comic-Con this weekend, then I’m afraid you’re out of luck. The Josh Trank-directed reboot was absent from 20th Century Fox’s schedule for its Hall H presentation on Friday, and now writer / producer Simon Kinberg has stated categorically that Fox has no Fantastic Four surprise in store.

“I can definitively officially tell you that there will not be anything from The Fantastic Four at this year’s Comic Con,” Kinberg tells Latino-Review. “We are still very much in the middle of shooting and we don’t want to show anything until it’s ready and it’s not ready yet. We want the first stuff that we show from the film to really blow people away, and it will but we »

Watch: 10-Minute Video Essay About Bong Joon-ho's 'Snowpiercer'

22 July 2014 8:26 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

The low key release of Snowpiercer is finding a pretty decent size audience after getting a release in limited theaters two weeks later, followed by a wide release and availability on nearly all VOD platforms last weekend. It's turned out to be a pretty big hit with Thompson on Hollywood learning from Harvey Weinstein, who battled with Bong Joon-ho over the final cut, that the film has pulled in $2 million in just one week from VOD releases. That's the kind of stuff that keeps changing the face of distribution. Now to explore the film and see what everyone is talking about, here's a video essay analyzing the film very well. Here's the 10-minute video essay on Snowpiercer from Press Play (via The Film Stage): The cast for Joon-ho Bong's Snowpiercer includes Chris Evans with Ed Harris, Jamie Bell, Alison Pill, John Hurt, Oscar winners Tilda Swinton & Octavia Spencer, »

The HeyUGuys Interview: Director David Gordon Green on his latest production, Joe

22 July 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

 

While David Gordon Green may be more at home in brutal and outrageous comedies such as Pineapple Express, it’s clear that this indie director has no issue with experimenting in his career. After another outing at the Edinburgh International Film Festival, his latest film Joe marks an interesting change in pace with a rejuvenated Nicolas Cage starring in the title role. We chat with the man from Little Rock on working with Cage and more.

Your latest film, Joe, played at the Edinburgh Film Festival as did your first film [George Washington] with both receiving very positive responses. So would you say Eiff has been somewhat of a lucky charm for you?

Yeah, I’ve always had a great experience there. I was trying to get there this year but I wasn’t able to because of my schedule. I remember being at the festival a few years ago when I »

'Batman V Superman,' 'The Avengers: Age of Ultron' And 'Fantastic Four' To Make Surprise Appearances At Comic-Con

21 July 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Marvel and DC will go head-to-head at Comic-Con 2014, causing some to theorize that DC and Warner Bros. will unveil a possible Justice League cast lineup.

Batman V Superman Footage

DC’s Justice League movie will be their first shared superhero film, coming out of the recent Superman reboot in Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel and the upcoming sequel, Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. Last year, Snyder announced the Batman V Superman sequel at the Warner Brothers Comic-Con panel, and fans are anxious to see whether or not Snyder will surprise Comic-Con with another revelation on the Man of Steel sequel.

Rumors, of course, are already running wild about what potential Warner Bros. and DC surprises could be in store for San Diego this week, with many citing footage of Ben Affleck’s Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman and Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, at the top of their list. »

"Turn" Is Revolutionary

21 July 2014 9:03 AM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Sneak Peek footage from AMC's Revolutionary War 'turncoat' period drama series "Turn", based on author Alexander Rose’s 2007 book "Washington's Spies: The Story of America's First Spy Ring", returning August 2, 2014, starring Jamie Bell, Seth Numrich, Daniel Henshall, Heather Lind, Meegan Warner, Kevin R. McNally, Burn Gorman, Angus Macfadyen, Samuel Roukin and Jj Feild.

What is most interesting to Canadian viewers of the series, is the portrayal of British officer 'John Graves Simcoe' (Samuel Roukin), as a central villain, according to most historical accounts. But the real Simcoe also passed the 'Act Against Slavery' in 1793, leading to the abolition of slavery in Upper Canada (Ontario) by 1810 and founded the city of York, now known as Toronto:

"...in 1776 and 1777, a New York farmer and his childhood friends form an unlikely group of spies, called the 'Culper Ring', who eventually help turn the tide during the 'American Revolutionary War'.

Kate Mara clarifies that Fantastic Four film will be 'drawn from canon'

21 July 2014 1:54 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Kate Mara has clarified her comments about the source material for Fantastic Four.

20th Century Fox's reboot film will "draw from the entire canon" of the classic Marvel Comics property, a spokesperson for the actress told EW.

The actress had been quoted in the Spanish-language Esquire México that the film "won't be based on any history of anything already published".

She added that she was not a comics fan and had been advised by director Josh Trank not to read any.

Mara will play Susan Storm/The Invisible Woman in Fantastic Four.

Michael B Jordan, Jamie Bell and Miles Teller will also star in Trank's film, which is said to have a 'found-footage feel'.

The Fantastic Four will open in UK cinemas on June 18, 2015 and in the Us on June 19. »

Michael B. Jordan Talks The New Fantastic Four

20 July 2014 10:31 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

While there has been a lot of talk about 20th Century Fox’s new version of The Fantastic Four, particularly while it was still in development, very little information has come directly from those involved in it. Now, talking to MTV, Michael B. Jordan – Aka Johnny Storm / The Human Torch – has opened up about the tone and more of the new superhero venture.With his Chronicle director Josh Trank calling the shots and Miles Teller, Kate Mara and Jamie Bell around him as Mr. Fantastic, Invisible Girl and The Thing respectively, Jordan commented on how the film has been perceived to be in trouble, with various script drafts and rumours that it would be shut down before it even began.“The script is evolving, you make on set decisions on the fly, things are always constantly changing,” he says. “Me personally, I block out that extra noise and I focus »

‘Fantastic Four’: Michael B. Jordan Talks Filming & Family Themes

18 July 2014 12:17 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Josh Trank’s upcoming comic book movie reboot The Fantastic Four has caused a frankly impressive amount of hubbub already, considering we haven’t yet seen so much as an official set photo. From the backlash over casting choices like Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell to rumors that Dr. Doom was going to be played by a woman (he’s not), this is one movie that just doesn’t seem capable of doing anything right in the eyes of some Marvel fans.

Admittedly Twentieth Century Fox’s Fantastic Four movies don’t have the best track record so far, but based on the talent behind the camera this reboot promises to be very different from what’s gone before. Director Josh Trank, ...
