Editorial: Five Reasons Why The Fantastic Four Might Be 2015's Best Comic Book Movie

19 December 2014 12:55 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

5. The Director Chronicle was one of the best "superhero" movies released in 2012, no easy feat when it came out in the same year as The Avengers, The Dark Knight Rises, and The Amazing Spider-Man Dredd. Considering the fact that it was a found footage movie and made on a budget the fraction of most comic book movies, Josh Trank did wonders! The final battle was up there with the one between Superman and General Zod in Man of Steel, and it was a great looking movie which wasn't held back by the fact that what we were seeing was supposed to be through a video camera. Trank's grounded and realistic portrayal of superpowers was particularly interesting, something which should have you excited for how he handles the Fantastic Four's unique abilities on the big screen. If you need proof of Trank's skills, look at the performance he got out of »

"Fantastic Four" - Do The Right 'Thing'

11 December 2014 5:02 PM, PST | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

According to motion capture choreographer Terry Notary ("Warcraft"), previously the 'movement coach' for actor Jamie Bell aka 'The Thing' on director Josh Trank's "Fantastic Four" reboot, 'Ben Grimm' is basically "...a kid trapped in a rock..."

"There’s very, very little expression in the face," said Notary, whose credits also include "Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes" and "Avatar". "Everything has to live through the soul and the eyes. Everything. The subtleties of the physicality when standing there...you’re a rock. You’re made of rock, so you can’t be super subtle but you can be if you sense that emotion coming out through the soul and the eyes.

"We had (Jamie) just holding this neutral expression and just pouring the soul out of his eyes while walking through this space, while obviously being grounded with weight and mass and gravitas that's so important and does take a lot of work. »

Disney's Star Wars Attractions Look To The Future

11 December 2014 2:11 AM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Even before Disney snapped up Lucasfilm and began developing new Star Wars movies, the company’s theme parks have been representing George Lucas’s adventures in that galaxy far, far away. Now, the attractions will be evolving to focus on Star Wars: The Force Awakens and beyond.“There will be a much larger Star Wars presence in our parks globally,” Disney boss Bob Iger said during a Variety event. “But we want to do this big, which takes time, and to do it right.” Theoretically, that might mean saying goodbye to the current likes of Star Tours – which got an update a few years ago – or simply adding more content from J.J. Abrams’ film, the other franchise episodes and the spin-offs being crafted by the likes of Josh Trank and Gareth Edwards.The plan is to target those whose primary experience of the Sw universe is from the new movie. »

Miles Teller responds to criticism of The Fantastic Four reboot

5 December 2014 2:25 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

There’s been a lot said about the upcoming Josh Trank directed reboot The Fantastic Four in recent weeks since Toby Kebbell revealed some plot details about his character Dr. Doom, and most of it has been fairly negative.

Speaking recently to MTV’s Josh Horowitz, Miles Teller – who plays leader of the group Reed Richards – defended the reboot saying “We’re proud of what we did.”

The lack of marketing and unnecessary secrecy from Fox has also been another negative factor for the movie according to the internet and Teller responded by saying “If you want to go on the internet and find out what every person has to say about it, it’s very easy to find that and you can kinda get caught up in the whole thing.”

Teller also spoke about when we might see some footage, “We’re right on schedule…we shot the whole »

Here's the Official Synopsis for the 'Fantastic Four' Reboot

4 December 2014 8:30 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Director Josh Trank's upcoming "Fantastic Four" reboot now has an official synopsis, which is slightly different from its comic origins.

Per Rotten Tomatoes:

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. Their lives irrevocably upended, the team must learn to harness their daunting new abilities and work together to save Earth from a former friend turned enemy.

That summary popped up on the review site earlier this week, but was not confirmed as authentic until IGN reached out to Fox. The studio said that that synopsis was indeed accurate, echoing comments made by cast members about the new direction the film was taking versus previous iterations of the characters.

New Human Torch Michael B. Jordan previously told IGN that the flick would be "grounded, »

Fantastic Four reboot's 'contemporary reimagining' synopsis revealed

3 December 2014 11:43 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

A new synopsis of The Fantastic Four has been revealed.

20th Century Fox has confirmed the accuracy of the short breakdown posted on Rotten Tomatoes (via IGN).

"The Fantastic Four, a contemporary re-imagining of Marvel's original and longest-running superhero team, centres on four young outsiders who teleport to an alternate and dangerous universe, which alters their physical form in shocking ways," reads the description.

"Their lives irrevocably upended, the team must learn to harness their daunting new abilities and work together to save Earth from a former friend turned enemy."

The classic origin of the Marvel Comics team was that they received powers due to exposure to cosmic radiation.

Set in the early 1960s, Stan Lee and Jack Kirby's comic saw the team racing to beat the Soviet Union into space in the rocket designed by Mr Fantastic.

Confirmed: this is the synopsis for the new Fantastic Four

3 December 2014 11:26 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

An official synopsis for director Josh Trank's Fantastic Four reboot. It doesn't add too much, though...

As people who have been reading us for a while may already know, we've ended up with letters from lawyers for reporting on a synopsis for the upcoming reboot of the Fantastic Four movie before.

There's little chance that's going to happen again though, as the folks over at IGN have had the following rumoured latest synopsis for Fantastic Four confirmed.

With the inevitable warning then for those who don't like things spoiled, here's what to expect, story-wise, from the movie:

"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.

The Fantastic Four Reboot Official Synopsis Unveiled

3 December 2014 10:02 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

The last time the super-powered quartet known as the Fantastic Four graced the big screen, filmgoers knew Chris Evans as the borderline reckless Johnny Storm, aka the Human Torch, a high contrast to his current turn as the responsible Captain America. The Fantastic Four reboot hits theaters from Fox next summer, but fans can get a taste of what’s to come with the recent reveal of the film’s synopsis.

20th Century Fox confirmed via IGN that the following description that appeared on Rotten Tomatoes is indeed the official synopsis of The Fantastic Four reboot:

Fantastic Four Plot Synopsis Arrives

3 December 2014 9:04 AM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

It might not hit cinemas until August next year, but 20th Century Fox has been remarkably withholding when it comes to imagery or footage from Josh Trank’s The Fantastic Four. But there is, at least, an official synopsis at last.As released by the studio and reported by Rotten Tomatoes, the film’s basic pitch runs thus (trailer voice on, folks): "The Fantastic Four, a contemporary reimagining of Marvel's original and longest-running superhero team, centres on four young outsiders who teleport to an alternate and dangerous universe, which alters their physical form in shocking ways. Their lives irrevocably upended, the team must learn to harness their daunting new abilities and work together to save Earth from a former friend turned enemy."It appears to be a new take on the origin story for the heroes – here in the shape of Miles Teller (Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic), Kate Mara »

New Plot Synopsis for 'Fantastic Four'

3 December 2014 7:02 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

IGN got hold of a brief plot synopsis for Josh Trank's reboot of The Fantastic Four, and it looks to be more or less what we've been hearing.

Here it is:

"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. Their lives irrevocably upended, the team must learn to harness their daunting new abilities and work together to save Earth from a former friend turned enemy."

What do you think?

I'm still not sold on it. Hopefully we'll get a trailer soon, and have a better sense of the film. 

The Fantastic Four hits theatres August 7, 2015.

The Fantastic Four Plot Details Confirmed

3 December 2014 6:44 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Perhaps no comic-book movie in the works has suffered as much derision from fans ahead of release as Josh Trank’s upcoming Fantastic Four reboot, which the director has promised will be “grounded” and approach the characters in a new light. A few weeks ago, possible plot details for the Fox tentpole leaked online, and many fans were infuriated by what they revealed. Doctor Doom as an “anti-social Eastern European computer programmer and hacktivist?” A mood ring-esque Human Torch?? “Genius convenience store clerk” Reed Richards???

Unfortunately, the nightmare’s not over for those fans angered by the plot details, as IGN has confirmed with Fox that at least the following part of the leaked description is accurate:

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. »

Fantastic Four Official Synopsis Sheds Light on Film's Plot & new Origins

3 December 2014 6:36 AM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Considering it's a big comic book film landing next Summer that finished shooting months ago, it's surprising how little we know and have seen regarding the Fantastic Four reboot. The curtain has been pulled back slightly now, thanks to an official plot synopsis that hints at some very different origins.  

It seems like every little leak or tidbit of information that's come out about the new Fantastic Four film (being directed by Josh Trank) has only served to incite the fans and work up their ire.  Mostly, things have been so concerning because so little official information has been shared, without which, fans can only assume the worst at times.  Well, now we have something official, in the form of a plot synopsis (which originally appeared on Rotten Tomatoes, but has since been confirmed by IGN to be official)...though it may not make fans any happier:

We’ve seen a full Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer already and some bits and pieces from Ant-Man, but next to nothing from 2015′s other big superhero movie, Josh Trank‘s Fantastic Four.

Official Plot Synopsis for the Fantastic Four Reboot

2 December 2014 11:16 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Fans just do not seem to be happy with anything they've seen or heard about director Josh Trank's Fantastic Four reboot. There really seems to be a lot of hate building up for it. There have been some things that I like, and other things that I don't regarding what I've heard about the movie. But I am going to keep an open mind. I want the movie to be good. We're just going to have to wait and see how it turns out. 

A couple of weeks ago a possible plot synopsis hit the internet. We still don't know if that is legit or not, but if you want to read it, click here. We now have an official plot synopsis that the studio released on Rotten Tomatoes. This is the first official story information that we've seen so far for the movie.

Read The Official Synopsis For The Fantastic Four Reboot

2 December 2014 9:16 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Throughout its relatively quiet production cycle, The Fantastic Four has dropped pieces of information that, for better or worse, have successfully distinguished the 2015 movie from its 2005 predecessor. Just when you thought the Josh Trank directed film couldn't be any more different from Tim Story's two attempts at launching a viable Marvel franchise, a new scoop promises that The Fantastic Four will be set in a completely different universe than any other Fantastic Four movie before it. That's not hyperbole either, the film is actually going to involve alternate universe travel. Comic Book Movie has reported that an allegedly official synopsis for The Fantastic Four has broken through various venues, Rotten Tomatoes being one of them. You can read what the film's plot has in store 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 »

John Boyega addresses racist comments from Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer

1 December 2014 3:49 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It was a trailer that was very well recieved by Star Wars fans (if the Flickering Myth Reaction is anything to go by) but there were some who felt that John Boyega (Attack the Block) shouldn’t play a Stormtrooper in Star Wars: The Force Awakens because – get this – he’s black. Aside from the race angle, some fans also claim this casting causes plotholes as all Stormtroopers are supposedly clones of Jango Fett.

What a world we live in.

Anyway, Boyega has taken to Instagram to address these complaints, telling people to “get used to it”.

Marvel blows up new Fantastic Four film cast

1 December 2014 3:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The latest issue of The Punisher sees three of the Fantastic Four reboot film stars apparently fall victim to an explosion.

The Marvel Comics series features an abrupt end for Kate Mara, Miles Teller and Jamie Bell when they cameo in the comic (via Newsarama).

Writer Nathan Edmondson assured readers that the comic is not making a "petty statement" against the upcoming 20th Century Fox film on Twitter.

The characters can be seen talking about the absent Michael B Jordan - who will play the Human Torch in director Josh Trank's film - shortly before meeting their demise.

Mitch Gerads illustrated the scene in The Punisher #12.

Marvel and Fox have denied rumours that there is a rivalry between the two companies over the film, which has been attributed to the decision to end the Fantastic Four comic.

Co-star Toby Kebbell recently revealed that his version of Doctor Doom will »
