With Fantastic Four finishing up its North American box office run with a dismal $56 million, it’s fair to say that 20th Century Fox’s reboot of the Marvel comic book series has been an unmitigated disaster. Speaking to THR, writer-producer Simon Kinberg has revealed that he was “disappointed” by the reception of the film, as well as commenting on Josh Trank’s decision to bash the film on Twitter ahead of its release.
“I haven’t really done a full diagnosis,” states Kinberg when asked where the film went wrong. “It was a hard movie to make, but I’ve made a lot of hard movies. I do think that there is a great Fantastic Four movie with that cast. But there’s so many different elements that need to come together perfectly. It’s like a collaboration between all these strangers. And if there’s a few things that don’t go right, »

From day one, no one seemed particularly enthusiastic about the prospect of a Fantastic Four reboot. Much of that stemmed from a desire to see the rights revert to Marvel Studios, but with Josh Trank (Chronicle) hired to direct and an impressive cast assembled in the form of Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan, and Jamie Bell, things started looking up.
The teaser trailer for Fantastic Four also appeared to signal good things to come, and even those who had been doubting the movie from day one were forced to admit that there was a good chance it would do what X-Men: First Class did back in 2011 and exceed everyone’s expectations.

Though the films were released four years apart, video blogger Fernando Andrés realized there are myriad similarities in Darren Aronofsky’s “Black Swan” and Damien Chazelle’s “Whiplash.” In this insightful video essay, he explores the preoccupations of both films with extremities, particularly hands and feet, amongst others. Read More: Sundance Review: 'Whiplash' Starring Miles Teller Leads With The Different Beat Of A Very Different Drum First he considers the immediate parallels of the films’ protagonists, Nina and Andrew. Natalie Portman’s Oscar-winning turn as Nina, the obsessive, naive dancer certainly can compare to Miles Teller’s portrayal of Andrew, the compulsive drummer. Both are students in the merciless New York art scene in their respective crafts; both begin each film white-clad, doe-eyed, and ready for whatever life’s going to throw at them; both characters let their craft consume their lives to the point of teetering on the margins of. »

Aloooohhhaaaa, Miles Teller. The Fantastic Four actor stripped down to his swim trunks for an afternoon spent soaking up the sun in Lahaina, Hawaii alongside his floral bikini-clad girlfriend, Keleigh Sperry. After almost three years of dating, it's clear the flames are still on high between these two because they couldn't keep their hands off each other. The couple was spotted taking in the sights, sipping cocktails by the water and lounging in a private cabana after soaking themselves in the tropical waters— all while engaging in some serious Pda. Still, this is not the duo's first round of fun in the sun. Sperry has posted many beachside shots on her social media »

Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four reboot was a disaster. The director took to Twitter on the day of release to publicly disown the movie (which had been plagued by troubling rumours since day one), and a number of reports followed, revealing the shocking and bizarre behaviour of the filmmaker on set.
Throw in reports that Fox made his life pretty difficult with budget cuts and unreasonable sounding demands, and it’s ultimately far from a surprise that the film, which stars Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan, and Jamie Bell, was a huge critical and commercial flop upon release.

As a result of that, the fate of the Fantastic Four franchise is unknown. As hard as it is to imagine Fox forging ahead with the sequel – which still holds a 2017 release date – stranger things have happened, and there’s every chance the studio will »

Miles Teller was seriously dedicated when it came to getting in shape for his role as boxer Vinny Pazienza for 2016 flick Bleed for This.

Ryan Reynolds, like many observers before him, has chimed in on the failure of Fox’s “Fantastic Four,” but is most frustrated with the fact that the flop may hit Michael B. Jordan the hardest among his castmates. “You know, Miles Teller‘s gonna recover,” said Reynolds in an interview with GQ. “Miles Teller‘s gonna go on to do amazing things, you know. It’s important that Michael B. Jordan continues to go on and do amazing things.” Once Jordan was announced as the next Johnny Storm (a.k.a. the Human Torch), original “Fantastic Four” fans were quick »

If there is one man who knows the perils of an under-performing superhero movie, it’s Ryan Reynolds. The actor was infamous for starring in the woefully-received Green Lantern, but he looks to be in an upstream of positivity with the release of the Deadpool trailer creating a lot of buzz. However, in an interview with GQ Magazine, Reynolds is fearful for the cast of Fantastic Four.
“I know it’s not easy for a black actor,” Reynolds answers after being asked about the difficulties faced by black and white actors. “It’s not easy for a female actor. It’s not easy for a lot of people that are… That entire cast is amazingly talented. »

When you get to a certain point in a series, it sometimes becomes difficult to know exactly what you’re going to use to hype the film, and try to draw people in. Allegiant, which now wants to be called The Divergent Series: Allegiant, is in a strange place in the story, which makes this all the more difficult. The first two films covered a lot of ground, and gave us our twist end.
Now Tris and Four need to venture outside the wall, which is obviously the mystery to end all mysteries, so what’s a trailer to do? We don’t want to give away much about what’s out there, but if we don’t show anything beyond the wall, we’ve got nothing to show.
The teaser trailer actually reveals quite a bit about the destruction outside the Chicago wall, and lets us in on some »

Back in October, Marvel held a massive press event where the studio unveiled its entire Phase Three lineup. For fans who have only followed the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies, and not the comics they're based on, it may have been the first time they ever heard of the comic book characters known as the Inhumans. The studio started integrating these characters into Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. last season, but we still have several years left until the Inhumans' big screen debut on July 12, 2019. Today we have a new report from Blastr, which reveals that the Inhumans will start eliminating the X-Men mutants in the comics.

Despite a critical drubbing and less than stellar box office returns, a Fantastic Four sequel might still be happening - but potentially with a different cast.
The film's writer-producer Simon Kinberg revealed to MTV that he is currently trying to "figure out" how to make a follow-up.
Why The Incredibles 2 will be the Fantastic Four film you've always wanted
"I'm really focused on the next one," Kinberg said, adding that he was disappointed by the reception the film received from comic book fans.
"I was most disappointed that fans didn't like it," he said. "I care more about them than I do anyone else. But I haven't done a full deep dive on it. Do I think it was unfairly treated? I don't know."

Undeterred by the less-than-stellar performance of this year’s Insurgent – both in critical and financial circles – Robert Schwentke and Summit Entertainment are edging closer and closer to the grand two-part finale of their Divergent series, with today heralding the first teaser trailer for the maiden installment, Allegiant.
Ditching the suffix now that the conclusive chapter has been renamed to Ascendant, both parties will be aiming to send the series out on a high note across the next two years, and it’s all about to kick off next March. Perhaps in an effort to expand the film’s reach, today’s clip acts as a concise story recap, streamlining the events of the first two installments before introducing Tris and Four – Shailene Woodley and Theo James, respectively – as they make tracks to venture beyond the wall.
No White Walkers in this fantasy universe, though – Allegiant opens with a striking view of a decimated Chicago, »

Go back in time with Tris (Shailene Woodley) in the trailer for the third adaptation of the popular book series, The Divergent Series: Allegiant. Flashing back to the beginning, when in 2014 we first were invited into a world where people are divided into factions based on virtues, and then to the second film Insurgent where the world is further shattered as Tris continues to fight against the alliance, the trailer reminds us of all Tris has accomplished and how far she still has to go.
In Allegiant, Tris is taken into custody of a mysterious agency known as the Bureau of Genetic Welfare, which appears to be lead by Jeff Daniels (“The Newsroom”, Dumb & Dumber). The film also stars Miles Teller (Whiplash, Fantastic Four), Theo James, Zoe Kravitz, and Ansel Elgort (The Fault in our Stars) who make for a bad-ass ensemble of young actors. Fans of the book series should get excited, »
