Snowpiercer - Radius TWC/Anchor Bay - Blu-ray and DVD Director: Bong Joon-ho Cast: Chris Evans, Song Kang-ho, Jamie Bell, John 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...

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 »

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, »

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.
"We're putting it together now, and one of the important things, because this Fantastic Four is a reboot, and is such a »
At this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, studios strutted their upcoming projects across the stage of Hall H, and began building marketing momentum. It’s a key date in the movie calendar that the entire year hinges upon, prompting fans to ponder many film-related questions. Will we see footage from a new Marvel flick? Are we likely to hear some insane casting news? Or failing that, will be granted a look at a murky, pixellated behind-the-scenes photo? So, bearing in mind the importance of the event, there was one noticeable absence from this year’s proceedings – Fox’s The Fantastic Four reboot.
There’s been a number of speculative reasons put forth for the movie’s absence, but none have stuck. The lack of anything promo-related is rather baffling, especially when you look at the pile of promotional teases other studios have stacked in their favour. Marvel will usually drop »

As we laid out recently, there are a lot of superhero movies coming up; the year 2016 will bring us seven such films alone. One of the biggest question marks in the near future, however, is The Fantastic Four reboot. It’s not so much that there’s doubt about director Josh Trank (Chronicle) rebooting the material, or that fans are unsure about the casting—Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan, Jamie Bell, and Tobey Kebbell is a really solid lineup. It’s that we haven’t seen a single thing from this movie yet. Granted, it isn’t set to hit theaters until next August, but by this point we’ve usually seen something from a property of this scale. Marvel released the first Ant-Man image and poster the week that filming began. Warner Bros. has been rolling out a number of promo images for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, »

After no shortage of buzz, and concerns about the edit released in North America (we got the version director Bong Joon-ho intended, fyi), "Snowpiercer" finally made its ways to cinemas and VOD earlier this year, where it was a solid success. But if you missed it playing where you live, or you didn't get a chance to order it up, we've got a great package for those eager to see the film or ready to watch it all over again. To recap, the star-studded movie features Chris Evans, Tilda Swinton, Jamie Bell, Alison Pill, Octavia Spencer, Ewen Bremner, John Hurt, and many more in an apocalyptic tale of the last survivors of humanity whirling through an Earth ravaged by cold on the titular train. But all is not kosher on board, and a revolution brews with the lower classes at the back of the train who look to right the »

Hold me. Thrill me. Kiss me. Kill me. The films of David Mackenzie envision life as a never-ending whirlwind of experience, a cyclone of emotion constantly spinning out of control. These feelings are heightened and externalized through melodrama, yet they can also simmer under the surface like hidden secrets waiting to explode. While his exhausted characters never fit into one social class – pop stars, artisan chefs and thuggish bruisers all take center stage – each sees the world in a similarly warped way. They are confused by inadequacy, defined by repression, purposefully solitary, and bordering on self-destruction. But most importantly they are also eager to transcend this unhappiness, especially after finding inspiration in another equally tormented individual. One must simply desire the opportunity to grow, to live, to survive.
Mackenzie’s key battleground is the romantic relationship. Incited by knowing eye contact and waged through a sensual collision of skin, »

New couple alert! Evan Rachel Wood is dating Ray Donovan actress Katherine Moennig, a source confirms to Us Weekly. And it all started after a couple of flirty tweets! "Just saw @katemoennig at a flea market. I turned to mush and ran. Love her!!" Wood, who was married to Jamie Bell for two years, tweeted back in February 2013. "@evanrachelwood you should have said hi :)," Moennig replied. Following their flirtatious exchange, Wood tweeted: "I had a dream @katemoennig and I were stuck in a cab together for [...] »
Wood, 27, and Moennig, 36, both attended the Hammer Museum’s annual Gala in the Garden in L.A. on Saturday, Sept. 12, and arrived together to pose one after the other at the event’s red carpet. Once inside, out bisexual Wood and Moennig, best known for playing a lesbian on Showtime’s The L Word, reportedly weren’t shy about being affectionate.
“Evan Rachel Wood arrived with Kate Moennig,” a source told the New York Post's’Page Six. “They were holding hands and looked very much like a couple.” Inside, the two went off to a secluded table where they “kept close all night,” according to the insider.
A couple of days before heading to the gala together, Wood and Moennig enjoyed a »
(Cbr) "Fantastic Four" star Miles Teller knows there are a lot of people expressing their displeasure online about director Josh Trank’s upcoming reboot, but he says he doesn’t “get too caught up in it.” “I already know that people hate me for the fact that I’m playing Reed Richards and that we’re ruining their franchise,” he tells The Huffington Post. “It’s tough, because when you’re taking on a franchise that’s already been established, you do kind of owe something to the characters and to the creator. At the same time, you want to bring it to a fresh audience. My dad grew up with the 'Fantastic Four' comic book, and not a lot of kids did, so you also want to make a movie that they can enjoy. I will say that this film that we made is not really for little kids, »

Last week Michael B. Jordan offered up a few thoughts on the criticism towards his casting as Johnny Storm / The Human Torch in 20th Century Fox’s upcoming reboot of The Fantastic Four, and now co-star Miles Teller (a.k.a. the new Mister Fantastic) has chimed in with some comments on the negative reaction that the reboot has received from fans of Marvel’s First Family.
“There are a million blogs and websites talking about the casting and they hear one little thing, like, oh, there was rumor it was a found-footage movie, so then there were a million comments on that.” said Teller in an interview with The Huffington Post. “If we’re going to be up for everybody’s public disposal of it, I try not to get too caught up with anything on the Internet. Out of sight is out of mind for me a lot of the time. »

(Cbr) New Human Torch Michael B. Jordan apparently loves to talk about his superhero duds. Following an interviews last week in which he promised the costumes in the Fox reboot won’t be “cheesy,” he expanded on his thoughts to ABC News. “It’s a new look,” he said. “We are all in containment suits. … It’s gritty. It’s a gritty film.” Anyone envisioning hazmat suits instead of the Fantastic Four’s classic tights need not worry, however. “The costume process definitely took some time to get in and out of that thing, especially since I was bulking up,” he said. “It was a little more snug during filming. We got through it, man. It was a process, but we did it. It was hard work.” Jordan had nothing but positive things to say about the shoot and the film, adding that he is “really excited about it.” “We worked hard for three months, »

20th Century Fox has a Fantastic Four reboot currently in post-production that will hit theaters August 2015. This will be followed the next summer by another installment in their more popular Marvel franchise with the sequel X-Men: Apocalypse. And it seems like we should be heading towards a massive crossover between these two properties. It sounds like a legitimate goal for the studio, as Marvel and Disney have already enjoyed great success with their expanded Avengers series and its stand-alones and spinoffs. But in April of this year, comic creator Mark Millar, who is a consultant on both franchises, claimed that, while the two franchise might exist in the same universe, their movies would stand alone. Bottom line, Fox has no plans for a crossover or team-up. But don't fret, true believers, this may just be in the short term.
In the longterm, we may very well see The Fantastic Four and X-Men series merge. »
I have a couple little updates regarding Josh Trank's Fantastic Four reboot to share with you today. One of them is about the suits that the characters will wear in the movie. The other addresses the notion of possibly seeing a crossover with Fantastic Four and X-Men. While talking to Good Morning America, Fantastic Four star Michael B. Jordan said,
"It's a new look. We are all in containment suits. It's gritty. It's a gritty film. The costume process definitely took some time to get in and out of that thing, especially since I was bulking up. It was a little more snug during filming. We got through it man. It was a process, but we did it. It was hard work. I'm really excited about it, everyone is really happy. We worked hard for three months, put a lot of time into it. The script is very grounded and relatable to everybody, »

The last two Fantastic Four films were a lot of things, but "gritty" sure wasn't one of them. With a series reboot coming in August 2015, actor Michael B. Jordan says we can expect a different look and tone than we got last time. In a chat with ABC, Jordan says the film by Chronicle director Josh Trank was a lot of hard work, but that he and the cast are very excited to share the film with the rest of the world.
On the topic of how the titular characters will look, Jordan gives us an idea of what the costumes that he, Miles Teller, Kate Mara, and Jamie Bell will be wearing will look like. "It's a new look. We are all in containment suits. ... It's gritty. It's a gritty film," he told the outlet. "The costume process definitely took some time to get in and out of that thing, »

Everything we've heard about The Fantastic Four reboot heading our way in 2015 is that it is a complete reinvention, and not like anything we've seen before in the comic books or on the big screen. Star Michael B. Jordan, who is playing Johnny Storm, aka the Human Torch, continues this idea, revealing that the costumes he and his co-stars will wear are very different from anything ever worn by this quartet of superheroes.
This goes along with the idea that the story itself is a reinvention of the iconic Marvel mythology about four individuals who gain special powers after exposure to cosmic rays during a scientific mission to outer space. In this new take on the story, it is rumored that Reed Richards (Miles Teller), Johnny Storm (Michael B. Jordan), Sue Storm (Kate Mara) and Ben Grimm (Jamie Bell) receive their powers after an experiment goes terribly wrong, and creates a portal into another dimension. »
Speaking to MTV, Teller revealed that director Josh Trank was instrumental both in convincing him to audition, and in convincing the studio to cast him.
"I ended up meeting Josh a year before and the script was going through some stuff," Teller said. "Then I tested for the role of Reed Richards; I think I'm the only person that did. But absolutely, it took a lot of convincing.
"For me with Reed Richards, I know Josh really had to [pull for me]. Josh did for all of the characters. For Jamie [Bell], he really vouched for [him].
"For [Michael B Jordan], he was like, 'This is my guy' from the bat. He was very specific on who he wanted to play these characters. »
Official details of 20th Century Fox’s upcoming reboot to The Fantastic Four have been kept under lock and key with only few snippets and rumours here and there. One person who has been quite vocal about the movie is The Human Torch Michael B. Jordan, with the actor being very open about the criticisms of his casting due to his race. And now in a new interview, he’s let slip some details about the suits for Marvel’s First Family.
“It’s a new look. We are all in containment suits,” Jordan told ABC News. “The costume process definitely took some time to get in and out of that thing, especially since I was bulking up. It was a little more snug during filming. We got through it man. It was a process, but we did it. It was hard work.”
