20th Century Fox is pushing its Fantastic Four reboot release date back a couple of months. Directed by Josh Trank (Chronicle), the film was originally scheduled to hit theaters on June 16, 2015, but Fox has now opted to move the pic to August 7, 2015. While August doesn’t necessarily seem like better real estate than June for the summer movie season, Disney had massive success in slating Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy for the beginning of August this year, which benefitted from the dearth of quality films throughout the rest of the month. The Fantastic Four will now square off against the all-ages horror comedy Goosebumps with Jack Black, but what of Fox’s other film that was slated for release on August 7th? Well the studio has now pulled Assassin’s Creed from the schedule entirely, giving it a “Tbd” release date. Hit the jump for more, including a release »

Fox on Thursday shifted the release date for its Marvel superhero movie “The Fantastic Four” from June 19, 2015, to August 7, 2015. The video game adaptation “Assassin's Creed” had been set for that date and will likely push to 2016. Directed by Josh Trank (“Chronicle”), “Fantastic Four” stars Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan, Jamie Bell and Toby Kebbell. The new date puts it up against Sony's horror comedy “Goosebumps,” but it's also the slot that launched Disney's blockbuster Marvel space romp “Guardians of the Galaxy” this summer, and comes just a few weeks after the fan boy extravaganza Comic-Con. Fox also shifted “Paper Towns, »

A few casting stories have surfaced this afternoon. Briefly: Dawn of the Planet of the Apes star Toby Kebbell is in early talks to take on the villain role in the Ben-Hur remake. The lovely Andie MacDowell will bring some femininity to the sequel Magic Mike Xxl. Anthony Mackie is in talks to join Sandra Bullock in the excellent-sounding political drama Our Brand Is Crisis. Hit the jump for more on the aforementioned casting. Just after casting Boardwalk Empire alum Jack Huston in the titular lead role, Variety reports that MGM and Paramount have entered talks with Toby Kebbell to play the villainous Messala in the Ben-Hur remake. Kebbell wowed audiences this summer as Koba in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and most recently wrapped the antagonist role of Dr. Doom in The Fantastic Four. Timur Bekmambetov is onboard to direct Ben-Hur in anticipation of a February 26, 2016 release »

Having recently wrapped “Fantastic Four,” in which he plays the evil Doctor Doom, Toby Kebbell may have found another bad boy role.
Based on Lew Wallace’s 1880 novel “Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ,” the epic drama follows a falsely accused nobleman who survives years of slavery to take vengeance on his best friend who betrayed him. Kebbell will play that best friend, who was portrayed by Stephen Boyd in the 1959 classic.
The pic arrives in theaters Feb. 26, 2016.
“Ben-Hur” joins the long list of Hollywood’s recent interest in biblical stories that have »

*Spoilers From Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes Ahead*
In a recent interview with Chinese news site M News, director Matt Reeves shed some light on the hugely successful sequel, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, which has grossed over $600 million worldwide so far. In the interview, he was asked about the real fate of the film’s “villain” Koba, played by Toby Kebbell. In the film, Koba falls to his apparent death, but Reeves has suggested that perhaps that isn’t the case. The director said:
“You’re one of the few people to ever mention that. That’s pretty funny. Because I struggled with… I thought that Toby Kebbell gave such an incredible performance. And I thought he was so powerful and I thought: ‘God, you don’t find a villain who has got that great a story.’ Because as you said, he was not really »

"Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes" Spoilers Ahead
Filmmaker Matt Reeves recently spoke with Chinese news site M Time (via Bad Ass Digest) where someone asked him a question regarding the fate of one of the characters - the ape villain Koba (Toby Kebbell). We saw him fall in his climactic fight with Caesar, but did he actually die? Maybe not. Here's Reeves' answer:
"You're one of the few people to ever mention that. That's pretty funny. Because I struggled with... I thought that Toby Kebbell gave such an incredible performance. And I thought he was so powerful and I thought: 'God, you don't find a villain who has got that great a story.'
Because as you said, he was not really formed as a villain; he's really a tragic figure. And I thought: 'God, he's amazing; let's leave open the possibility. Let's create the door of a »

For anyone who might have somehow missed that giant all-caps headline, Spoilers abound for both Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, and potentially its sequel, from here on out. Still with me? Recently, a Chinese website called "M Time" sat down with Apes director Matt Reeves and asked him the one question that curiously no one seems to have asked the filmmaker yet - Did Koba (portrayed brilliantly through motion-capture by Toby Kebbell - who is also our new Doctor Doom in the Fantastic Four reboot) actually die from his fall after the climactic fight with Caesar? We've been provided with the English translation for this interview, courtesy of Badass Digest: "You're one of the few people to ever mention that. That's pretty funny. Because I struggled with...I thought that Toby Kebbell gave such an incredible performance. And I thought he was so powerful and I thought: 'God, »

Having already become the highest grossing instalment in the franchise, Fox’s simian sequel Dawn of the Planet of the Apes has now crossed $600 million at the global box office, with an opening weekend of $47 million in China helping to push the film to an impressive $611 million to date. Apes is the sixth film to surpass $600 million this year after Transformers: Age of Extinction, Maleficent, X-Men: Days of Future Past, Captain America: The Winter Soldier and The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

We’re less than a year away from Chronicle director Josh Trank’s reboot of The Fantastic Four, but 20th Century Fox has kept nearly every detail about the film under tight lock and key. The only things we know for sure are the cast (which includes Kate Mara, Jamie Bell, Michael B. Jordan, and Miles Teller) and a few minor tonal details from producer Simon Kinberg.
The rest remains a mystery, as Fox opted out of cashing in on the marketing bonanza that is San Diego Comic-Con. We don’t even know the status of the film’s production, as Mara posted that filming had wrapped in July, only a week after Jordan commented that the script was “still evolving.”
Despite Fox’s best efforts to keep all aspects of the project a complete mystery, a few leaks have occurred. Last month, an image of The Thing appeared online, »

20th Century Fox and those involved in the upcoming reboot of "The Fantastic Four" have yet to confirm the authenticity of last month's photo of a prop stand-in of Ben Grimm in his full 'The Thing' rock monster form.
As a result, don't expect an answer either way to these photos which popped up late last night on Geek Pride that claim to show Toby Kebbell in his Doctor Doom costume on a green screen set.
The design is quite different to the comics and the previous films, looking akin to the previous costume having been partly melted and residing in a dumpster for several years. Of course with all the green screen involved in the film it's hard to say what the true finished form of it will look like.

More set photos from director Josh Trank's The Fantastic Four reboot have been leaked, this time giving us our first look at Doctor Doom. It is not known if this is Toby Kebbell under the costume or a stand-in. Here, we see Doctor Doom on a green screen sound stage interacting with both Jamie Bell's The Thing stand-in and Michael B. Jordan's Human Torch stand-in.

During Comic-Con this past July, the first photo of the Thing was rumored to have leaked. Director Josh Trank seemingly verified that this was the real deal, a prop being »
We've already see what Jamie Bell will look like as The Thing in the upcoming "Fantastic Four" reboot. And now, we may have the first photos of Toby Kebbell as Doctor Doom. The photos are from the website Geek-Pride. It hasn't been confirmed that this is from the "Fantastic Four" set, but it sure looks that way. In one of the photos it is believed that a stuntman is standing in for The Thing and in the other photo you can see The Human Torch. Check everything out below. "Fantastic Four" is directed by Josh Trank (Chronicle) And is set to hit theaters on June 19th, 2015. Photos: (click to enlarge) »
Last month an image arrived online showing how Jamie Bell’s Ben Grimm will look as The Thing in Fox’s upcoming reboot The Fantastic Four (although sadly we were forced to take it down), and now thanks to Geek Pride we may have our first look at Toby Kebbell’s Victor Von Doom, as well as a glimpse of what appears to be Michael B. Jordan’s Human Torch. If these images are genuine, then don’t expect them to stay online for very long, so check them out while you can…
Update: Images removed at the request of the studio.
The Fantastic Four is set for release on June 19th 2015, with a Johs Trank (Chronicle) directing a cast that includes Miles Teller (Divergent) as Mr. Fantastic, Kate Mara (American Horror Story) as the Invisible Woman, Michael B. Jordan (Chronicle) as the Human Torch, Jamie Bell (Nymphomaniac) as The Thing, »

The website Geek Pride reckons these are leaked images from the set of Fox's Fantastic Four reboot, and looking at them gives us no reason to doubt them. Following on from our first look at the Thing a while ago, we now appear to have the very first pics of Doctor Doom, who will be played by Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes actor Toby Kebbell. You'll notice who could well be a Human Torch stand-in in one pic too, and the stocky guy in the other is apparently Jamie Bell's Thing stunt double. What do you think? Josh Trank directs Fantastic Four, which also stars Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan, Miles Teller, and Tim Blake Nelson. »
The Fantastic Four director Josh Trank revealed on his official Twitter page that principal photography has wrapped, before sharing the first look at The Thing (Jamie Bell). This is the same photo that leaked last month, but it was never confirmed to be authentic, until now.
The filmmaker also held an impromptu Q&A session, where he shared new details about this superhero adventure, starring Miles Teller, Michael B. Jordan and Kate Mara. Take a look at what he had to say below, where he confirms there is no found footage aspect of the reboot and the first trailer will arrive later this year.
We wrapped. #FantasticFour

@Marvel_Freshman Found footage, no. First look, »
Despite the fact that 20th Century Fox’s reboot of The Fantastic Four was absent from the San Diego Comic-Con last month, a production image did leak during the con, giving us an alleged sculpt of Ben Grimm’s alter-ego The Thing. The authenticity of the photo was subsequently confirmed by Fox, who sent out a rather threatening legal letter demanding its removal, but now director Josh Trank has taken to Twitter to confirm that the image was genuine.
Update: Turns out the Twitter account is fake, and Fox’s lawyers have pulled their usual trick, demanding its removal. Apologies again.
The Fantastic Four is set for release on June 19th 2015, with a cast that includes Miles Teller (Divergent) as Mr. Fantastic, Kate Mara (American Horror Story) as the Invisible Woman, Michael B.
