Fantastic…Bore. Fantastic…Fourth Worst Movie Ever Made. Fantastic…4%. Or, as some have taken to calling it, just ‘Four’.
It was the fail story of the Summer, with Twentieth Century Fox’s tentpole superhero blockbuster bombing so hard at the box office, it took out a five-mile stretch of Odeons in the Greater Bexleyheath area. In the September edition of The Flickering Myth Movie Show, Oli Davis, Rebecca Perfect, Luke Owen and Kat Kourbeti discuss the problems with the movie, the practice of entrusting $100million+ franchises with young, independent filmmakers (think Gareth Edwards on Godzilla and Colin Treverrow on Jurassic World), and who is really to blame for the movie’s failure – Fantastic Four’s director Josh Trank, or the studio that allegedly hamstrung his production?

With bits of news coming out about the troubled production of Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four coming in drips and drabs, we’ve got some new concept art from Steve Jung, which reveals an early version of Planet Zero. The artwork matches an early draft of the movie which details the group’s first encounter with Galactus. However, Jung says that the castle belongs to Victor Von Doom, so this must have been from a later draft.
Check out the artwork below:
“I was on this one early on before all the drama happened,” Jung explains in his Facebook post. “None of my work made it to the movie (kinda glad) since it got changed many times after I left the project.”

In the wake of Fantastic Four’s disasterous release, Josh Trank’s Chronicle screenwriter Max Landis released the first four pages of his own script for the reboot of Marvel’s First Family, which was ultimately rejected by 20th Century Fox. Well, now the writer has opened up to The Daily Beast about his vision for the movie, which would have been the first instalment of a trilogy.
“My Fantastic Four was an on-the-run movie. It begins with their origin, which is an illegal Branson-esque space launch where they want to go see this thing. They become the biggest celebrities in the world, except then they wreck and they get these horrible powers. The government is hunting them and they split up, and you really get into the dynamics of these people as they’re learning to control their powers. So the origin takes place in the first two minutes »

20th Century Fox's Fantastic Four reboot suffered another big hit at the box office this weekend, dropping from fourth place all the way down to 10th in its third weekend. The ill-fated superhero movie has earned just $49.7 million domestically since its release on August 7, enduring a paltry 8% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, which makes it the worst-reviewed superhero movie of all time. Over the weekend, concept artist Steve Jung shared four new illustrations from his work on Fantastic Four, which offers new looks at Planet Zero and Victor Domashev's (Toby Kebbell) Doom Castle. Take a look at what the artist himself had to say about his work, but be warned, there will be spoilers that follow.
"Might as well show some work from this movie called Fantastic Four lol. I was on this one early on before all the drama happened... none of my work made it to the movie (kinda »

Chronicle writer Max Landis knows how to create original concepts and bash out killer scripts. Whether his intended visions for the prolific amount of screenplays he’s penned over the years truly come into being when passed to a director, you can’t doubt his enthusiasm for the craft. Even when he’s not contracted by studios and producers, he’s often busy tapping out a sequel or reboot to a movie that he might not own the rights to — but has oodles of passion for. Super Mario Bros., Ghostbusters, Lethal Weapon 5 are just a small pool of examples.
The most high-profile? Fantastic Four. Following the film’s public denouncement by every critic worth their salt, he posted the opening pages of his spec script to Twitter. Naturally, it hewed closer to the comic book and people on the whole thought it showed enormous potential. While »

He recently menaced the Fantastic Four from another dimension, and he.s played a sinister bonobo in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the 33-year-old Kebbell is in negotiations to join the cast of the latest King Kong-centric adventure.
