While we did get a pretty clear look at Ben Grimm’s (Jamie Bell) “transformation cocoon” in the Fantastic Four trailer, we’ve yet to get a good view of his face as The Thing - until now. A Fantastic Four fan (via ComingSoon) snapped a photo of himself in front of a new international banner for the film and it features a dead-on shot of The Thing alongside Mr. Fantastic (Miles Teller), Invisible Girl (Kate Mara) and Human Torch (Michael B. Jordan). It’s not a high-res shot so we can’t pick apart the details but yeah, that’s The Thing right there. Hopefully he’ll look a little more natural when he isn’t crudely Photoshopped in between the other characters. You can check out the Fantastic Four banner for yourself below. The film is due in theaters on August 7th and also stars Toby Kebbell and Tim Blake Nelson. »

This probably isn't how 20th Century Fox wanted this to go! While they've tried to keep a lock on our first true reveal of The Thing in their upcoming Fantastic Four reboot, an early production photo gave us a look at what Jamie Bell's transformation will sort-of look like with a motion capture puppet that was being used on set. Now, an Instagram user has given us our first full look at The Thing courtesy of an international banner spotted out in the wild.
As you can see, Ben Grimm's transformation into The Thing isn't much different than it was in the original 2005 Fantastic Four movie. Like that franchise killer, this, too, will be an origin story. It is said to be inspired by the Ultimate Fantastic Four Marvel comic book series. It will be a contemporary re-imagining of the superhero family, which is one of Marvel's longest running titles. »
There's a reason studios should stop trying to hide elements of their films from the online audience, and it's because the first look fans get at something you've been trying to hide should not be in the form of a washed out Instagram picture (via albertoheineken26), but that's the case when it comes to The Thing from Josh Trank's upcoming The Fantastic Four reboot as you can see below. What you can't tell is the human form of the giant rock man is played by Jamie Bell in the movie. Unlike the version played by Michael Chiklis in the previous attempts to bring the superhero family to life, this will be an all-cg creation and, I assume, more akin to the Hulk from The Avengers than the foam rubber character Chiklis played. I have to assume 20th Century Fox will try and release an official picture soon enough, but »

Tell us, what do you think of the design for The Thing? Sound off in the comments below.
The Fantastic Four, a contemporary re-imagining of Marvel’s original and longest-running superhero team, centers on four young outsiders who teleport to an alternate and dangerous universe, which alters their physical form in shocking ways.

Directed by Josh Trank, Fantastic Four is set to hit theaters on August 7. It stars Miles Teller (Whiplash) as Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic, Kate Mara (House of Cards) as Sue Storm/The Invisible Woman, Michael B. Jordan (Fruitvale Station) as Johnny Storm/The Human Torch, »

Having released the first trailer for Fantastic Four way back in January, things seemed to have quietened down for Josh Trank’s reboot. Eager to see a new big-screen adaptation of the classic Marvel team, I’m happy to report that a new poster has been released.
Well, I say new, we’ve seen it briefly before; it’s the final shot from the trailer, with the titular quartet observing an ominous-looking structure in a barren landscape. With the Chronicle director taking the reigns, this new iteration appears to be much darker and grittier in tone than the 2005 version; great news for us, though probably bad news for our heroes.
The poster also shows the group wearing costumes of sorts, though not the familiar sight of their classic outfits. Whilst it makes sense considering the film’s style, I could understand fans being disappointed but worry not! If last week »

An Instagram user posted a picture of himself standing in front of a new Fantastic Four billboard which reveals a new group shot of the team as well as fully revealing the appearance of Jamie Bell's Ben Grimm in his rocky Thing form. The billboard appears to be in Portuguese. Per earlier reports, Jamie Bell's "Thing" will primarily be CGI and will be motion captured by Jamie Bell. The billboard also reveals new looks at the cast, as well as Johnny and Sue Storm displaying their powers. Perhaps this week's poster release yesterday is a sign that a new trailer is on the way which will showcase the team in action. Fox's FANT4STIC is slated for release on August 7th and stars Miles Teller, Jamie Bell, Michael B. Jordan, Kate Mara and Toby Kebbell. »

Fans finally got their first good look at 20th Century Fox's Fantastic Four when the trailer debuted back in January. While it remains unclear when the next trailer will debut, the studio has released a new poster, featuring stars Miles Teller (Mr. Fantastic), Michael B. Jordan (The Human Torch), Kate Mara (The Invisible Girl) and Jamie Bell (The Thing), along with the tagline "Change is Coming." While we don't get to see Mr. Fantastic's unique stretching abilities on display, the poster does show The Human Torch's fiery hands and even shows some of The Invisible Girl fading away, along with the monstrous Thing. Perhaps the studio is saving Mr. Fantastic's powers for the next trailer, but we'll have to wait and see.
These four heroes are all seen gazing at the same mysterious portal that was shown briefly in the trailer. There is speculation that this may be a gateway to The Negative Zone, »
It appears that 20th Century Fox is finally ready to start the marketing campaign for Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four reboot. In addition to a slew of new images released over the last few weeks, we now have a new poster for the film, showing the titular super-powered family ready for a big battle.
Those familiar with the trailer for the film will notice that this is just one of the final shots of that footage, with Johnny and Sue Storm’s power sets photoshopped in. Still, it’s a pretty cool poster and a sign that more promotional material is likely on the way.

I'm not judging, I'm just saying... or I guess asking is the more appropriate verb here... what is it with the blue beams of light to the sky in so many of these comic book moviesc It's not as if it's a deal breaker when it comes to the film's plot or anything like that, but once again a new comic book movie is featuring such a scenario as seen on the new poster for Fantastic Four, coming to theaters on August 7.

Marvels' First Family assembles in new poster for director Josh Trank's Fantastic Four (2015). Are Mr. Fantastic (Miles Teller), the Human Torch (Michael B. Jordan), Thing (Jamie Bell) and Invisible Woman (Kate Mara) gazing at a portal to the Negative Zone, home of Annihilus and Blastaar? Fox will try again with the Fantastic Four on August 7, 2015. Simon Kinsberg and Jeremy Slater penned the script. The film also stars Toby Kebbell as Victor Von Doom (Victor Domashev), Reg E. Cathey as Dr. Franklin Storm and Tim Blake Nelson as the Mole Man. »
"It was great," he told Digital Spy of shooting the film. "It's a very different experience from Vikings - a lot of CGI stuff and a lot of motion capture, so it was a whole different experience.
"It's a totally different way of acting. Sometimes you're not actually even talking to anybody, it's just to air, so it's very different.
"But I'm excited about it - the motion capture stuff is gonna be pretty ground-breaking. I've seen some images from it, and what they can create now with computers is unbelievable."

The Divergent Series: Insurgent is finally in theaters this weekend, with most of the cast participating in the recent press tour. This means we've had no shortage of star Miles Teller as he brings the world more insight into his comic book reboot Fantastic Four. While he may only get limited screen time in Insurgent, he is the leader of Marvel's first superhero family. And he seems pretty excited by the opportunity. While his initial statements during filming seemed to indicate that we were getting a Fantastic Four that strayed far from the comics, his recent comments offer a bit more fan-service. He doesn't want to scare anyone away, while also trying to express that this is a 'slightly' different take on the material. As we've heard before, he goes onto compare the movie to the Ultimate Fantastic Four comic book series.

Both Marvel's Daredevil and 20th Century Fox's Fantastic Four seem to be taking a more serious approach to their rich comic book history, including the look of the characters. Judging from what has been released thus far for both projects in terms of trailers and photos, it seems as though the traditional, more colorful costumes have been discarded for a brooding, pitch black look. But don't worry! According to those involved with both Marvel titles, that simply is not the case. In both Daredevil and Fantastic Four, we'll get to see superhero suits that more closely resemble what has come before in the comics. But it will be an evolution that may take some time, and we might not get to see these more traditional looks until we've paid our admission.
Before we saw any footage from 20th Century Fox’s upcoming reboot of The Fantastic Four, star Michael B. Jordan spoke about the costumes for Marvel’s First Family, stating that they’d be getting a “new look” and describing the outfits as “containment suits”.
Since then, we have of course seen the first trailer, and sure enough the costumes on display were very different to the Fantastic Four’s regular look. However, it appears that we will be seeing the traditional costumes at some point in the film, with Miles Teller telling Screen Crush that:
“These are the beta versions of the costumes, which is great… But, yeah it would be very odd if the Fantastic Four didn’t don the traditional costumes. You’ve got to. There is some servicing there. You’ve got to give that to the fans. That’s what it’s all about.”

Even before the release of any official footage or plot details, fans were critical of Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four reboot for its apparent dismissal of the source material in favor of a more “grounded” and “realistic” take on the classic Marvel property. Comments from actress Kate Mara – in which the new Invisible Woman stated that Trank had urged her and her co-stars not to read comics - certainly didn’t help, and the absence of several recognizable elements of the Fantastic Four (such as their costumes) in the first trailer only added fuel to the fire.
Those upset about the costumes in the new film – which look more like containment suits than traditional superhero garb – can now rest assured, because Miles Teller, who plays Mr. Fantastic himself, has promised that we will in fact see the classic costumes on screen when all is said and done. In a new interview with Screen Crush, »

There are some excellent videogame-influenced movies out there. They're just not based on videogames...
No, no, this isn’t a list of the worst movies ever made. It’s a choice selection of films from the last 20 years that have been based on videogames. And as you can see, it makes for grim reading. But why is that?
But before we get into that, some brief history.
“Videogames can never be art.”
Despite the huge success of the gaming industry, which is now the most profitable form of entertainment, videogames are still seen an inferior art form. The late, great Roger Ebert famously kicked a beehive in 2010 when he proclaimed that “Videogames can never be art.”, Long story short, »
We’re still a few months away from the release of Josh Trank’s The Fantastic Four, but we’ve already heard the news that its sequel (announced before the first movie has hit cinemas) has been pushed back by a couple of weeks to avoid the buzz over Star Wars: Episode VIII. There has also been some talk, both for and against, doing a crossover movie with X-Men, whose rights are owned by 20th Century Fox.
“I would love to kick it with Wolverine,” Miles Teller told MTV News, adding that he’s heard no plans of a crossover movie. “I don’t know what we would talk about, but…”
There has also been some talk of The Fantastic Four deviating away from the source material, but Teller has said that he delved deeply into the Ultimate Fantastic Four series to prep for the role. “We were looking to »
