Black Widow can punch explosions.
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 »

Fantastic Four was an undeniable low point in Miles Teller‘s career, but he’s already brushing himself off and moving on with an intriguing new role. He’s in talks to star in Thank You For Your Service, a Ptsd drama from American Sniper writer Jason Hall. Get details on the Miles Teller Thank You For Your Service casting […]

After crafting a bona fide white-knuckle ride with last year’s Oscar-winning American Sniper, screenwriter Jason Hall is breaking new ground to make his directorial debut with Ptsd drama, Thank You For Your Service. Having penned the script for the war flick himself, Hall is iterating on his American Sniper storytelling in a big way, and today The Wrap brings word that Whiplash and Fantastic Four star Miles Teller is in contention to join the nascent project.
It’s worth keeping in mind that there is currently no deal in place for Teller to board the DreamWorks flick, though early signs indicate he could be in line to play one of three Us soldiers in the post-traumatic stress narrative. Arriving home from the Iraqi war, Thank You For Your Service charts the trials and tribulations left facing servicemen and women who try to assimilate back into society and the humdrum »

As he dusts himself off after the belly flop of the new Fantastic Four and looks instead to the future, Miles Teller is finding no shortage of work. He’s now in early negotiations to star in American Sniper writer Jason Hall’s directorial debut, Thank You For Your Service. The writer adapted the script from David Finkel’s nonfiction 2014 tome, which followed what happened to American veterans home from Iraq and their struggles to adapt to civilian life after their experiences in combat. And the script focuses on three specific soldiers who must deal with what they saw overseas and how that affects their re-integration into family life and the workplace. From the sounds of it, Teller is up for the role of one of the troopers, and it sounds like something he could bring some intensity to. There’s no word on when the film might start production. »
“American Sniper” screenwriter Jason Hall is directing from a script he adapted from David Finkel’s 2013 book of the same name, which followed up the home-front struggles of the battalion chronicled in Finkel’s “The Good Soldiers” during its 15-month tour of Baghdad during the surge of 2007-08. The book was a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award.
DreamWorks acquired movie rights to “Thank You for Your Service” prior to publication. No producers have been attached to the project.

While the stench is still lingering from this month's rotten "Fantastic Four," the good news for the cast of the film is that very little of it has stuck on them. Rather, it's Josh Trank and the studio who have borne the brunt of the stink, so it's not a surprise that Miles Teller is rolling easily into a new high profile gig. The Wrap reports that the actor is in early negotiations to star in the Ptsd drama, "Thank You For Your Service." Once flirted with by Steven Spielberg, "American Sniper" screenwriter Jason Hall will make his directorial debut with movie, based on the book by David Finkel, that tracks three U.S. soldiers who struggle to adapt to home life after serving in Iraq. Here's the book synopsis: No journalist has reckoned with the psychology of war as intimately as David Finkel. In The Good Soldiers, his bestselling »

Like Tim Burton’s Superman Lives or James Cameron’s Spider-Man, we will never see the true version of Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four. Among the many public problems the film has had in the last couple of weeks (see here, here, here, here, here and here), it was revealed by screenwriter Jeremy Slater that not much of his script was left in the final version. That version we eventually saw was re-written by Simon Kinberg (X-Men: Days of Future Past) at the behest of Fox who worried Slater’s script was too expensive. Well, the chaps over at Birth.Movies.Death got a hold of Slater’s original script – which had Galactus, Mole Man, Herbie the Robot, Fantasticar and Doctor Doom as a Latverian dictator.
Here’s the breakdown:
As in the final film Reed goes to the Baxter Building as part of a science scholarship; there he meets Sue and Victor Von Doom. »
