"Fantastic Four" movie producer Matthew Vaughn ("Kick-Ass"), was recently interviewed about his developing "Fantastic Four" feature, to be directed by Josh Trank ("Chronicle"), following the Fox release of 2 films directed by Tim Story.
"It's a total reboot, that's for sure," said Vaughn about the new film. "It's got nothing to do with the other bloody ones."
"It's not stretchy guy and a guy running around in rock that looks like it's made polystyrene. And its not a comedy."
Aiming for a more "...grounded superhero and sci-fi..." action adventure, the screenplay by Jeremy Slater is being 'polished' by best-selling author, screenwriter Seth Grahame-Smith ("Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter").
Created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, the team's original comic book characterization was initially different from all other superheroes, because they did not conceal their identities, leading the public to be both suspicious and in awe of them. Also, they frequently argued and disagreed with each other. »

While we're big fans of the work that comes from the collectible arthouse Mondo, there's plenty of other great artists out there whose work is showcased elsewhere on the web. Blurppy is one such destination for some truly stunning artwork, and the site recently held a "Poster Posse" where they had dozens of artists do their own interpretation of X-Men: Days of Future Past. Some of these would make excellent Mondo posters and show some truly amazing skills. We've posted some of our favorites below, many featuring the Sentinels finally getting their due diligence, and you're definitely going to wish these were on your wall. Here's some selections from Blurppy's Poster Posse for X-Men: Days of Future Past (via SlashFilm): You can see tons more X-Men: Days of Future Past artwork at this link and this link. X-Men: Days of Future Past is directed by Bryan Singer and written »

We're still yet to get official confirmation from 20th Century Fox as to the cast (even though it seems all but assured at this point), but with The Fantastic Four gearing up to go into production this month, producer Matthew Vaughn (Kick-Ass, X-Men: First Class) has spoken briefly about the reboot to Empire, during which he made sure to distance it from Fox's previous Ff movies.
"It’s a total reboot. It’s got nothing to with the other bloody ones," said Vaughn, referring to Fantastic Four and Fantastic 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer, both of which starred Ioan Gruffudd, Jessica Alba, Chris Evans and Michael Chiklis as Marvel's First Family. "It’s not a stretchy guy and a guy running around in rock that looks like it’s made of polystyrene. And it’s not a comedy."
Let's hope that they do stick with some of the source material, »

Now that the cast has been revealed, we need some details about the movie. I would expect that whatever happens, The Fantastic Four is going to be tonally the opposite of the two Tim Story films. Producer Matthew Vaughn was recently asked about the Josh Trank film by Empire and shared some scant details about what we can expect from the reboot, both regarding the tone of the film. .It's a total reboot, that's for sure. It's got nothing to do with the other bloody ones." .It's not »

There is a new Fantastic Four cast in town. And according to director Matthew Vaughn, they are nothing like the last. Taking on the producer role in Fox’s reboot of Fantastic Four, the X-men: First Class and Kick Ass director spoke about the new film in this superhero franchise:
“It’s a total reboot that’s for sure. It’s got nothing to do with the other bloody ones. It’s not a strechy guy and a guy running around in rock that looks like it’s made of polystyrene. And it’s not a comedy.”
If anything, it seems that Mr Vaughn’s views on the previous two Fantastic Four films, starring Jessica Alba and Chris Evans, are pretty clear. And so are his aspirations for the new reboot. Let’s hope his dreams can become a reality. With a cast including Kate Mara, Miles Teller, Michael B. »

As the various competing superhero franchises gear up for the next round of 2014 releases – Captain America: The Winter Soldier in April and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in May – our eyes are also on the various 2015 offerings. One project in particular, Fox’s Fantastic Four reboot, has the potential to be a franchise-rejuvenating success.
The first two attempts to bring Marvel’s superhero team to the big-screen were famously derided by both fans and critics, which means that Chronicle director Josh Trank and Fox’s Marvel Universe guru Simon Kinberg’s take on the material has a lot riding on it. They have a fascinating cast lined up so far, with Michael B. Jordan playing Johnny Storm, Kate Mara as Invisible Woman, ...

Claudia Schiffer has told a TV chat show in the UK that she once turned down an offer of over $1million to spend an evening with an Arab Prince. The 43-year-old supermodel – who is married to movie director Matthew Vaughn – says she immediately turned down the weird offer, which echoes the plot of the 1993 Adrian Lyne film starring Robert Redford, Demi Moore and Woody Harrelson. Speaking during a pre-recorded interview which is due to be screened this weekend, Schiffer told ITV host Jonathan Ross: “I’ve had loads of weird suggestions but the strangest was from an Arab prince. “He asked if he could hire me for dinner [ Read More ]

Director Josh Trank (Chronicle) is set to begin shooting the upcoming "Fantastic Four" reboot next month. And now, producer Matthew Vaughn (director of "Kick-Ass" and "X-Men: First Class") tells Empire magazine how different this version is from the last two films, which Vaughn seems to really dislike. "It's a total reboot, that's for sure," he explained. "It's got nothing to do with the other bloody ones. It's not stretchy guy and a guy running around in rock that looks like it's made from polystyrene. And it's not a comedy." The new movie stars Miles Teller as Mr. Fantastic, Kate Mara as Sue Storm, Michael B. Jordan as Johnny Storm, and Jamie Bell as Ben Grimm. It's set to hit theaters on June 19th, 2015. »

Now that the main cast members are in place for The Fantastic Four, many fans are wondering how 20th Century Fox is approaching this take on these classic Marvel characters. While we still have no confirmed story details yet, producer Matthew Vaughn revealed in a recent interview with Empire Magazine that the reboot is most certainly not a comedy, and that this has nothing to do with the 2005 version of Fantastic Four or its sequel.
"Its a total reboot, that's for sure. It's got nothing to do with the other bloody ones. It's not stretchy guy and a guy running around in rock that looks like it's made of polystyrene. And its not a comedy."
Michael B. Jordan (Johnny Storm), Miles Teller (Reed Richards), Kate Mara (Sue Storm) and Jamie Bell (Ben Grimm) are starring as this team of superheroes, with production scheduled to begin next month in Louisiana. Though, »
20th Century Fox and director Josh Trank surprised a lot of people with their bold casting choices. Invisible Woman/Sue Storm will be played by House of Cards actress Kate Mara. Chronicle actor Michael B. Jordan is Johnny Storm/The Human Torch. The kid who couldn't stop dancing in Billy Elliot, Jamie Bell, is Ben Grimm/The Thing, and Whiplash actor Miles Teller is Reed Richards a.k.a. Mr. Fantastic. While the memories of Jessica Alba, Chris Evans, Michael Chiklis and Ioan Gruffudd from Tim Story's mediocre Fantastic Four franchise are still fresh in our minds it will be interesting to see Trank's take on these beloved Marvel characters. Producer Matthew Vaughn weighs in: "Its a total reboot, that's for sure. It's got nothing to do with the other bloody ones. It's not stretchy guy and a guy running around in rock that looks like it's made polystyrene. »
With a production set to begin next month, and the cast finally assembled , the pieces are starting to fall into place for Fox's upcoming reboot of The Fantastic Four , but there are still a few mysteries. Many rumors have pointed to radical alterations of the characters' origins, and while the filmmakers have debunked some of them, fans remain skeptical about what lies ahead for the future of the franchise. Get ready for more fuel on that fire though, as producer Matthew Vaughn had some interesting words about the film with Empire magazine (thanks to SuperHeroHype Forums user 'TheOneWhoKnocks' for the quote). "It's a total reboot, that's for sure," he told the »
As we wrap our coverage of X-men: Days Of Future Past from last summer’s set visit in Montreal, we save one of the best and most informative interviews for last. Lauren Shuler Donner has built as successful career and reputation for producing some of Hollywood’s top grossing flicks, including two of my favorite classics Pretty In Pink and St. Elmo’S Fire. Although her name has been attached to to a whole slew of other hits, Shuler-Donner hit the jackpot after attaching her herself to the X-men franchise, which have grossed over 3 billions worldwide to date.
In our sit-down interview with the knowledgable and creative mega-producer, she enthusiastically talked about her involvement with all seven X-men films, the inception of First Class and filming its sequel, filiming in 3D, casting Peter Dinklage, working with Hugh Jackman aka Wolverine, working with Bryan Singer again, what’s next for Fox and much more. »

Nicholas Hoult, the little boy from About A Boy is all grown up and starring opposite some of Hollywood’s hottest players, including on and off-screen love, Jennifer Lawrence. He’s famous for starring in UK hit series Skins as well as indie flick, Warm Bodies and Xmen: First Class.
Reuniting once again with his X-men mutant supercast to film X-men: Days Of Future Past, we met with the young English hottie while on the set of the film in Montreal, last summer. See below what he had to say about playing the Beast in the highly anticipated, forthcoming film, his fellow A-listers, working with director Bryan Singer, Peter Dinklage and so much more.
Is this where you shot Warm Bodies?
Nicholas Hoult: Yes. Yeah, in fact-
There’s a poster for it down the hall.
Hoult: Yeah, but I literally just walking over here now a lot of »

It’s hard to tell what’s going on in a five second long teaser trailer about a movie with approximately 4,000 characters in it, but the newest bit of footage released for Bryan Singer’s upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past does the best it can.
In the clip, we see a lot of familiar faces turning and looking concerned, as if to say “There’s some serious action going down here.” Among the familiar faces turning and looking concerned are Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Michael Fassbender, James MacAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence and a man with a screaming metal face (probably because it’s covered in metal and that’s just hard for anybody to cope with). A lot is riding on this superhero sequel, so 20th Century Fox is likely wise to be jumping into promotional teases this early in the year.

James McAvoy is hands-down one of the funniest and genuine actors around today. His personality and innate talent make the Scotsman that much more attractive and lovable. His powerful performances in Atonement, The Last King Of Scotland and Wanted have continued to catapult his career and bring him worldwide success.
A couple of years ago, McAvoy landed the dynamic part of young mutant superhero, Professor X in X-men: First Class starring opposite a magnificent ensemble cast. The film was a massive success as expected and 2 years later, the cast reunited to film the sequel in Montreal. Last summer, during our set visit in Montreal, we had a total blast chatting and laughing with McAvoy during our sit-down interview in his onscreen mansion. See below what the charming actor had to say.
This is a movie about you.
James McAvoy: Is it? It’s a movie about…? What’s it a movie about? »
