These days anyone can have an opinion on the use of military intelligence and the way governments use that information in conflict. Social media is awash with conspiracy theories, so it’s refreshing to see a show that takes everyone back to the American War of Indpendence, when the Us was also a political chess board, but when things were supposedly simpler. The emergence of spycraft as a key element of battle in the late eighteenth century forms the backbone of Turn, a dense, frustrating yet ultimately thrilling narrative based on the book Washington »

Gary Collinson on the 2015 superhero box office showdown…

Before we turn our attention to this year’s line-up of superhero movies, we’ll start as always by casting our eye back twelve months to last year’s predictions, as Marvel continued the build to Avengers: Age of Ultron with Captain America: The Winter Soldier as well as launching the cosmic side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Guardians of the Galaxy, Fox brought together its two X-Men timelines for X-Men: Days of Future Past, Sony killed the Spider-Man franchise (again) with The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
Last Year’s Prediction - “As for the biggest earner of the year, I can’t look past The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and I expect the sequel to pull in around $700 million, followed by Captain America: The Winter Soldier and X-Men: Days of Future Past with around $550 – $600 million apiece (if »

The middle of Spring actually means a new selection of summer blockbusters to look forward to, and with a ton of big-budget films slated to come out within the next few months and beyond, the summer of 2015 looks like one to remember.
From the new Mad Max (which is already on our end-of -year top ten list event though we haven’t yet seen it) to Avengers, Poltergeists, male strippers, talking teddy bears, and a reboot of the Jurassic Park franchise, this summer’s trips to the theaters will be jam-packed with sequels and new tales. From May 1st right through to the end of August, some of the movies on our list could wind up on year-end “best of” lists or even receive some Oscar talk by December.
Grab your calendar, because Wamg has a rundown of this summer’s films we’re most excited about, so check them out below! »

Jamie Bell recently took part in an interview with AOL Build when he discussed playing Ben Grimm, aka the Thing, in The Fantastic Four. "I'm hugely excited, it's a huge responsibility" he started. "It's a very kind of a beloved property. It's in the comic book universe, it's right up there with all the rest of them. So, there is a lot of hoop-jumping, and trust. I think people were kind of confused when I was cast, but this is an origin story of these characters. I haven't seen the film yet, but I'm very excited to see it. What I can tell you is, just from making the film and the journey that we've been on with it, is that the film is very much an experience; it really is. It's really fun to be a part of. Simon Kinberg is a great comic book writer; comic book just »

In the space of 24 hours, we’ve gone from having a vague, hazy idea of how Ben Grimm’s altered form would appear in the Fantastic Four to owning definitive proof. Earlier fan snaps of the character, whose transformation in the alternate world sees him dubbed The Thing, weren’t exactly coherent and so, Fox revealed the first proper still yesterday. A clear front-facing image, it’s brought to life the sheer enormity of the character, despite it bearing no resemblance to the actor playing him, Jamie Bell.
If that long-awaited preview wasn’t enough, then fear not. Entertainment Weekly‘s latest summer preview includes another snap of The Thing, moments before crushing something just offscreen. In addition, USA Today unveiled a fresh look at Miles Teller’s Reed Richards poring over a techno-gadget spewing wires and all sort of hi-tech gimmickry. You can check them »

We.ve been thinking of Josh Trank.s upcoming Fantastic Four as a superhero movie. It is, after all, based on a popular Marvel comic and features a heroic team of individuals with superpowers and costumes. Seems to fit the bill. But according to the director, the film may be much creepier than you expect. EW caught up with Trank, who made his name with 2012.s low-budget, superpowered Chronicle, and he talked about focusing on the terrifying nature of the powers acquired by Reed Richards (Miles Teller), Sue Storm (Kate Mara), Johnny Storm (Michael B. Jordan), and Ben Grimm (Jamie Bell). He said: I just kinda jumped to .body horror. in my head. Chronicle is about the evolution and strengthening of unique powers. This movie is really viewing them as a curse. X-Men: Days Of Future Past writer/producer Simon Kinberg handled the script, and he and Trank had two »

20th Century Fox
After months of playing coy, Fox’s marketing teams have finally decided it’s clobbering time. There are now two officially sanctioned images of The Thing doing the rounds, one released to Empire and the other to Entertainment Weekly, and both of them right here, right now, for your consideration.

He’s not as orange as fans might be used to, and his big, cartoony brow has gone, but I get it. I can see the pathos in this design.
It’s also interesting how little he looks like Jamie Bell. Now the images are out there, the next testing point will come when we hear Bell’s voice coming out of this thing, or see it animated with, presumably, some input from his performance capture.

At the risk of sounding unpatriotic, perhaps it’s time to temporarily retire the Revolutionary War as a dramatic TV backdrop. Following “Sons of Liberty,” the miniseries that presented history in the style of a beer commercial, comes the second season of “Turn: Washington’s Spies,” an AMC series that certainly looks handsome and draws on literary material but remains dramatically limp, despite near misses, turning doorknobs and other tricks of the espionage-on-screen trade. George Washington and Benedict Arnold are among this season’s historical supporting players, but barring the occasional flash, it’s not just the teeth that are wooden.
It’s 1777 as the second season begins, with the rebellious colonists under the leadership of Gen. Washington (Ian Kahn) reeling from the loss of Philadelphia to the British. As such, the efforts of spy Abraham Woodhull (Jamie Bell) and his co-conspirators become especially important, as he pretends to »

Earlier this morning, we got our first good look at the transformed The Thing from director Josh Trank’s (Chronicle) comic book adaptation Fantastic Four. Yet another image of Jamie Bell’s CG character from the film has now landed online, along with some interesting tidbits about the film itself. Trank previously told us that he was inspired by David Cronenberg-ian body horror for his take on Fantastic Four, and in a new interview with EW he goes one further to say the tone is a cross between Steven Spielberg and Tim Burton; he dubs it “Dark Amblin.” Indeed, his take on the property is about viewing superpowers as a curse, as the titular team of scientists become physically altered after an inter-dimensional mission goes wrong.

Earlier this morning, we got our first look at The Thing from this August's Fantastic Four remake. Now, EW has another look at Jamie Bell as Ben Grimm rendered in motion capture as The Thing. Here, we get to see the character enacting his favorite catch phrase: "It's clobberin' time!" When we'll actually get to hear Jamie Bell say those words is a question for another time.
EW actually has quite a bit of new information on this Marvel superhero adaptation. They reveal a scene from the Baton Rouge, La set which finds Sue Storm learning how to fly for the first time after a cosmic accident has given her and three close pals inhuman powers. The group has been quarantined in a secret government base, where they try to come to terms with their new way of life. Not only can Sue fly, she can also turn invisible and project force fields. »
Those fearing that the Thing might not be looking his most fantastic in the upcoming reboot of “Fantastic Four” may find solace in the first image of the character, shared via Empire on Thursday.

“Jamie in real life is a tough guy,” Trank told Empire. “He exudes this strength. Ben is Reed’s best friend in the archetypal, spiritual way, and you want that character to have that warmth and that strength.”
Many fans were unsatisfied with the brief glimpse of the Thing offered in the film’s first trailer.
The hubbub continued when an international billboard showing the Thing leaked online, prompting backlash from fans who feared the new »
