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, »

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 »
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 image are genuine, then don’t expect them to stay online for very long, so check them out while you still can…
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, Toby Kebbell (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes) as Doctor Doom, »

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. »

Last week, I got the chance to catch a screening of one of this fall’s most anticipated dramas, the Sundance favorite Whiplash. Although I loved the film – stay tuned for my review, which will run during the Toronto Film Festival – I clicked on watching the new international trailer with trepidation. Why would I want to subject myself to J.K. Simmons’ terrifying performance again?
The film’s madness and suspense is all-consuming and the new two-minute ad clearly shows why this high-octane option has been a top hit at film festivals since the beginning of the year. (Nevertheless, my companion Dominic Mill had a more muted response to the film when it premiered at Sundance.)
Although the film is a drama, it has the searing intensity of a tightly coiled thriller. J.K. Simmons is bound to get a flurry of awards love for his penetrating performance as the ruthless, no-nonsense Fletcher. »

Whiplash is seriously one of the greatest films you will see this year, so when it comes out on October 10th, don't hesitate to watch it. It was one of the first films that I saw this year, and it's still holding strong as one of my favorites of the year.
Miles Teller stars in the film as Andrew Neyman, a young jazz drummer who attends one of the top music schools in the country. He ends up under the guidance of the school’s fearsome maestro of jazz, Terence Fletcher, brilliantly played by J.K. Simmons. This is not a guy you want to mess with, and you'll get a little taste of the insanity that this movie has to offer in the new international trailer below.
Both of the main actors give the best performances of their careers. If you haven't already, make sure to read our review of it here. »

Back at the end of July we brought you the first official trailer for the Sundance winner Whiplash, directed by Damien Chazelle. Today, over a month later, we bring you the first international trailer for the intense drama – but be warned, it’s definitely Nsfw.
Miles Teller (That Awkward Moment) stars as Andrew Neyman, a good – but not great – jazz drummer, hired as part of hardass Terence Fletcher’s (J.K. Simmons) band. As Andrew starts to grow and progress as a musician, Terence pushes him further and further, teetering on the edge of motivation and abuse, sanity and insanity. Melissa Benoist (Glee) co-stars.
The film won the Grand Jury and Audience Award prizes at Sundance 2014, cementing it as one of this year’s must-see films. While the original trailer gave a glimpse into Simmons’ dark side, this new one goes even deeper. I definitely wouldn’t want to piss him off, »

Several new trailers of note today. Legendary is making one last marketing push on its R-rated, Paris Catacombs-set, found footage horror tale "As Above, So Below" with a new restricted trailer going online ahead of the film's debut on Friday.
Speaking of found footage horror, the trailer is out for "The Blair Witch Project" co-director Eduardo Sanchez's Sasquatch movie "Exists" which hits VOD on October 24th. The film won the SXSW Midnighters Audience Award earlier this year and follows a group of friends camping in the Texas Big Thicket when they come under attack.
A new international trailer for Sundance winner "Whiplash" has gone online and features some of the least nasty cursing that J.K. Simmons' music teacher spits out to a young drummer (Miles Teller) in the film.
Finally there's a new international trailer for "Far From Men," the 1950s Algeria-set tale starring Viggo Mortensen as a »

Lauded Sundance dramas often get a lot of critical acclaim, but can’t translate that heat into awards season contention. The studios that often distribute the films are too small, the movies are too niche, etc. etc. But that feels like it might be changing in 2014. Richard Linklater’s “Boyhood” has already been snatched up by Paramount for home video (which will presumably make it easier to get in front of Oscar voters) and by all accounts, the music drama “Whiplash”— about a young musician struggles to make it as a top jazz drummer— has what it takes to get noticed outside indie circles. A big crowd pleaser, but smart and never ingratiating, the movie stars Miles Teller and J.K. Simmons, and most pundits predict that it could get serious attention over the next few months. And they have a strong point, even if you haven’t seen it. The »

I saw Whiplash last week and while I'm saving my review for the Toronto Film Festival I will say if you're already interested in seeing this you may want to skip this newest trailer out of France. As with most trailers, it gives away a few key events, not to mention I walked into this movie knowing absolutely nothing about it other than it was a movie about a music school drummer (Miles Teller) and his instructor (J.K. Simmons) and to have Simmons' character come completely out of nowhere is something I think every movie lover should experience. Then again, what the hell do I know, I hardly watch any trailers so maybe knowing 75% of the story and every character trait before walking into a movie is the only way to watch movies nowadays. I will, however, say this... I wouldn't mind seeing Miles Teller score an Oscar nomination and »

Last month we showed you a fantastic trailer for the Sundance favorite Whiplash featuring a menacing drum instructor played by bully J.K. Simmons and an inspiring student played by the underrated rising star Miles Teller. It’s another unnerving look at what’s sure to be one of people’s must see movies this fall. If you think a dramatic movie can’t scare you, step right up. Check out our own Chris Bumbray’s glowing review from Sundance. »

"Are you a rusher, or are you a dragger, or are you going to be on my fucking time?!" Since this latest trailer for the Sundance sensation Whiplash starring Miles Teller and J.K. Simmons comes from France, there's no red band to warn you about the content of the trailer. But just so you know, some of the anger that Simmons throws at Teller is pretty profane and Nsfw. This trailer really shows off how intense this drama is as it follows kid (Teller) who joins one of the most prestigious jazz bands in the country, run by a ruthless and demanding orchestra teacher (Simmons). This film is brutal, thrilling and just incredible. Here's the new international trailer for Damien Chazelle's Whiplash, from Ad Vitam (via SlashFilm): To compare or to catch up, you can also see the first Us trailer for the Sundance selected film right here. »

A new Whiplash trailer has gone online, and it gave me flashbacks of how much the film unnerved me when I saw it at Sundance. The film stars Miles Teller as a student jazz drummer who aspires to greatness under a ruthless instructor, played with palpable intensity by J.K. Simmons. Although some may want to file this under "drama", make no mistake: this is one of the scariest horror films of the year. The word "horror" usually implies something supernatural and thriller conveys some form of excitement. Whiplash is nerve-wracking dread, but it's still a must-see, especially for Teller and Simmons' performances. Hit the jump to check out the international Whiplash trailer. The film opens October 10th. Via Ad Vitam. Here's the synopsis for Whiplash: A pedagogical thriller and an emotional S&M two-hander, Damien Chazelle’s Whiplash is brilliantly acted by Miles Teller as an eager jazz drummer »

As the domineering music conservatory teacher at the center of Whiplash, J.K. Simmons spews vile, mean, even brutal dialogue. Most of it is aimed at the the young drummer and would-be jazz great played by Miles Teller. Is the teacher just using a bit of old-school motivation, or is he really out of his mind? […]

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, »
The first image has been revealed of The Thing from the new Fantastic Four movie.
The behind-the-scenes photo was posted on Twitter by director Josh Trank, who captioned the image: "Well, it's out. There's your first look at Ben. #FantasticFour".
The photo shows The Thing in his CGI form against a green screen backdrop.
Mara recently shared a photo of herself with her co-stars after they wrapped filming on the comic-book movie.
The Fantastic Four will open in UK cinemas on June 18, 2015 and in the Us on June 19. »
[Update: The source of all this - a supposed Josh Trank Twitter account - might be fake. Scroll for details.]
Fox’s reboot of the Fantastic Four movie franchise is without a doubt the most hated-on superhero movie currently in development. The casting of Michael B. Jordan as a black Johnny Storm/Human Torch caused… well, a storm of controversy – and having Miles Teller (Project X), Kate Mara (House of Cards) and Jamie Bell (Snowpiercer) as the new Mr. Fantastic, Invisible Girl and The Thing (respectively) hasn’t been met with overwhelming fan approval, either.

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. Jordan (Chronicle) as the Human Torch, Jamie Bell (Nymphomaniac) as The Thing, Toby Kebbell (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes »
