'Fantastic Four' Is an Epic Multipower Slugfest Says Director

23 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

As a part of Entertainment Weekly's extensive Comic-Con preview, Fantastic Four director Josh Trank has offered new details about his upcoming superhero movie reboot. Marvel's first family is much younger in this version, with Miles Teller portraying Mr. Fantastic, Michael B. Jordan as The Human Torch, Kate Mara as The Invisible Woman and Jamie Bell as The Thing. The director burst onto the scene with 2012's Chronicle, and he reveals that, while his first movie explored a group of youngsters discovering their powers, Fantastic Four takes a very different approach.

"Chronicle was all about the discovery and evolution of those powers. This is like, 'What if it's a couple years later and it sucks?'"

The director also teased the Fantastic Four's battle with the nefarious Doctor Doom, portrayed by Toby Kebbell, going onto tease the enormous scope of this next Marvel adventure.

The film has been shooting up in Vancouver and is being readied for release in early 2016, and it's likely they'll make a big show of things at Comic-Con next week (during the 20th Century Fox panel on Saturday). Deadpool stars Ryan Reynolds as the infamous "merc with a mouth", and it sounds like they're not holding back with his mouth in this movie. It will be hard R - producer Simon Kinberg: "It's graphic.

Producer Says 'Deadpool' Will Be Rated 'Hard R': 'It's Graphic'

3 July 2015 2:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

There have been promises before that "Deadpool" will be a different breed of superhero movie, and that includes the film's rating. Star Ryan Reynolds has said in the past that the flick will be rated R, and now, producer Simon Kinberg is doubling down on that declaration.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, in which he also debuted a new "Deadpool" photo (see below), Kinberg said that audiences would not be disappointed in the colorful, foul-mouthed hero's onscreen representation.

"'Deadpool' is a hard R," Kinberg told EW. "It's graphic. Nothing is taboo. You either commit to a truly outrageous boundary-pushing kind of movie or you don't."

In fact, the flick is so dark that its director, Tim Miller (making his feature debut), linked it to a surprising source of inspiration.

"I felt 'Fight Club' and Tyler Durden were good corollaries," Miller told EW. "We are in »

3 July 2015 1:41 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Pending its first public airing at Comic-Con next week, Bryan Singer has taken to the social medias with a brief, busy teaser for the new Rogue Cut of X-Men: Days Of Future Past. See how many new bits you can spot."This is not just an extended edition of X-Men: Days Of Future Past," says the director, "but an all-new version of the film." Writer/producer Simon Kinberg said previously that “We want to give fans the fullest picture of the film – behind the camera, and in front of it. Every movie has scenes that are cut out, but not every movie has scenes cut out with such a beloved character.”[Here be possible spoilers]. Empire has seen it, and we can confirm that it's 18 minutes longer than the theatrical version, and despite the Anna Paquin-centric title, surprisingly Rogue-light. "She gets resuced from the X-Mansion," says our man Nick De Semlyen, "but only »

Deadpool: new image, the movie is "hard R"

2 July 2015 10:36 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Let there be no doubt that Deadpool, starring Ryan Reynolds, will be getting an R-rating...

Arriving in cinemas next February is the long, long-mooted X-Men spin-off Deadpool, which sees Ryan Reynolds reprising the role he took on in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Tim Miller is directing the film, and the movie also features Ed Skrein, Morena Baccarin, Gina Carano and Brianna Hildebrand.

Deadpool is expected to be unveiled to some degree at San Diego Comic-Con, but ahead of that, 20th Century Fox has firstly released a new image from the film. Let's start with that...

Furthermore, the film's producer, Simon Kinberg, has removed any residual doubt over just what kind of rating the Deadpool team are targeting. "Deadpool is hard R", he told EW. "It's graphic. Nothing is taboo. You either commit to a truly outrageous boundary-pushing kind of movie or you don't". Tim Miller added the film was "far away »

New Look at Ryan Reynolds in "Hard R" & "Graphic" 'Deadpool'

2 July 2015 10:52 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

As Marvel Studios continues to sell tickets and challenge box office records, other studios are looking at not only how they market their movies, but how they have created their cinematic universe in hopes of mimicking their success. Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds has already embraced social media to not only keep fans interested throughout production, but even before the film was greenlit he was actively supporting it and generating fan interest. Does this mean the film will somehow be any betterc No, but I will say I do believe that had something to do with the fact this film will be released with an R-rating. Speaking to the effect the Internet has had on the film, in an interview with EW, Reynolds comments on the leaked test footage that found its way online. The response the footage received helped the film get its eventual green light and Reynold says he'd »

Simon Kinberg Talks Deadpool

2 July 2015 10:31 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Given the big platform that is next week’s San Diego Comic-Con, Fox will naturally be taking the chance to hype Deadpool, which has Ryan Reynolds finally getting a proper crack at the wise-cracking, violent character. Entertainment Weekly has a new picture of the main man, with commentary from producer Simon Kinberg and director Tim Miller.Deadpool features former Special Forces warrior-turned-mercenary Wade Wilson, who undergoes a rogue experiment as part of the Weapon X plan that leaves him brutally scarred but also boasting Wolverine-like healing powers. Armed with his new abilities and his pitch-dark sense of humour, he hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life, while taking on other bad guys as he does so.  And according to Kinberg, it will, as Reynolds and the rest have been saying, stick to the mantra of grown-up (if not always mature) storytelling. “Deadpool is a hard R,” he says. »

While X-Men: Apocalypse has already been confirmed as part of 20th Century Fox's epic Hall H panel on Saturday, July 11, we have not yet heard who else is participating in Comic Con 2015. Well, Ryan Reynolds is a safe bet. And he'll probably be bringing the very first official footage from Deadpool. Perhaps we'll even see the first trailer. To celebrate the impending event, we have a brand new look at the actor in costume, courtesy of EW. We also have three Funko Pop exclusives that will be available only at Comic Con in anticipation of this Marvel mutant spinoff. Folks who attend the panel might find themselves getting a little extra attention from Ryan Reynolds, who wants to plant a giant kiss on all the fans that made this possible. He expresses the following.

Deadpool Crashes onto the Scene in New Image

2 July 2015 9:25 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Not to be outdone by his costumed comic book counterparts appearing all over the net today, Deadpool stars front and center in a new image from the Ryan Reynolds-starrer. It finds the Merc with a Mouth standing amidst some general chaos - a flipped car, a flailing pedestrian, Deadpool poised with guns drawn. It's a pretty standard action shot as far as these movies go, and lacks the humorous touch of what has been an excellent marketing campaign for the mercenary movie so far. That being said, Comic-Con is almost upon us and this image is likely to be just the tip of the iceberg for the 20th Century Fox property's push as it rolls out over the next six months or so. And if the film's rating was still in question, Deadpool producer Simon Kinberg answers it beautifully: “Deadpool is a hard R. It’s graphic. Nothing is taboo. »

Benedict Cumberbatch, Kevin Hart, Emma Stone and 319 others invited to vote for Oscar

26 June 2015 11:50 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Strangely dropping a press release on a historic day where the nation's attention is elsewhere, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences revealed their annual list of new member invitees this morning.  For those who criticize the makeup of the Academy there was some good news and the stark realization the organization still has a long way to go. The Academy has spent the last eight to 10 years attempting to diversify its membership and this year's class mostly reflects that. There are significantly more invitees of Asian and African-American descent, but the male to female disparity is still depressing.  Out of the 25 potential new members of the Actor's Branch only seven are women.  And, no, there isn't really an acceptable way for the Academy to spin that sad fact. Additionally, It's important to realize the 322 people noted in the release have only been invited to join Hollywood's most exclusive club. »
