Miles Teller Talks About Portraying 'Mister Fantatsic''s Powers In Fantastic Four

27 February 2015 3:55 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Josh Trank's Fantastic Four reboot has been causing a lot of controversy, something which was evident after more details about the movie found their way online yesterday. Empire Magazine also caught up with Miles Teller to talk about what to expect from his take on Reed Richards, and it definitely sounds like he'll be as smart as his comic book counterpart! "It was good talking with our advisors on set, whether it's the quantum physics stuff or biomechanics," he says. "I always want to know enough about the stuff before I say it. But I'm on layman's terms with the science. I'm a layman's Reed Richards!" Don't take that too literally folks! As for how fans should expect to see Mister Fantastic's powers portrayed in this version, it does sound like it will be a little less cartoonish than the previous movies and the comics. "If he's this gummy guy slinging around, »

Director Josh Trank discusses The Fantastic Four reboot, Michael B. Jordan’s casting as Johnny Storm and paying homage to the comic books

26 February 2015 12:58 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This morning we brought you four new images from 20th Century Fox’s upcoming reboot The Fantastic Four [check them out here], and now Cbm has posted some quotes from director Josh Trank in the latest issue of Empire Magazine, where he offers up his thoughts on the difference between the new film and the studio’s first two Ff movies.

“The original two films to me are very similar to a lot of recent movies that have come out, in terms of that kind of cartoonish. It’s just not something that me and Simon are interested in as storytellers. There’s the opportunity to make something that is challenging and tragic and dramatic. The opportunity is right there in the material. We’d rather steer it in that direction as opposed to just embracing a tone that comes right off the page.”

Trank went on to discuss Michael B. Jordan’s casting »

'Fantastic Four' Director Talks Thing and Human Torch

26 February 2015 8:49 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After the first trailer's release last month, it became immediately clear that the Fantastic Four reboot was going to be much different than the first two films, especially since this new version is inspired by the early works of David Cronenberg, such as Scanners and The Fly. During a new interview with Empire, director Josh Trank say he wanted to stay away from the tone of the first two Fantastic Four movies, which he thought were too "cartoonish," adding that he is steering this reboot in a darker direction, as opposed to the comic books.

"The original two films to me are very similar to a lot of recent movies that have come out, in terms of that kind of cartoonish.

The Fantastic Four Reboot Will Copy Steven Spielberg In This Way

26 February 2015 8:15 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Regardless of whether they actually plan to do so or not, at some point every director who sets off to make a big-budgeted blockbuster ends up copying Steven Spielberg. It just has to happen. That.s because the bearded wonder has done so much behind the camera in this genre that you can.t help but pay homage to his efforts in some fashion. And The Fantastic Four.s Josh Trank has now come out and admitted that his goal from the first reel of the upcoming reboot is to emulate the "dark" tone of an "Amblin movie," the studio that Spielberg founded back in 1981 with Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall. Trank made these comments during an interview with Empire, where he was also joined by The Fantastic Four.s writer and producer Simon Kinberg. Kinberg added to these remarks by saying that The Fantastic Four will look to emulate »

New 'Fantastic Four Images,' Film Described as 'Dark Amblin Movie'

26 February 2015 7:39 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Last month the teaser trailer for Fantastic Four came out of nowhere, finally showing off what we can expect from Josh Trank's comic book reboot. The teaser was pretty heavy-handed, going for a tone akin to Interstellar, so we're wondering just what we'll see in the next trailer. In the meantime, Empire has released four new images from the film, each giving us a new look at Miles Teller, Michael B. Jordan, Jamie Bell and Kate Mara in the film. There's nothing too revealing here, but at his point, we'll take what we can get. The film doesn't hit until later this summer, so we've probably got time to wait for more footage. Look! Here's the new images from Josh Trank's Fantastic Four from Empire: You can still watch the first trailer for Fantastic Four right here. The magazine also had an intriguing description about the film from Trank himself, »

Fantastic Four: Details On 'The Thing''s "Transformation Cocoon", Race Change, And More

26 February 2015 6:42 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

The Fantastic Four reboot has split opinions (even though it's still months away from being released), with some fans excited to see Chronicle director Josh Trank's new take on the property and others wishing Marvel had the rights back already. When Empire Magazine caught up with the filmmaker recently, he had this to say about how his version of Marvel's First Family will differ to both the last attempt and other unnamed recent releases. "The original two films to me are very similar to a lot of recent movies that have come out, in terms of that kind of cartoonish. It's just not something that me and Simon are interested in as storytellers." In fact, anyone expecting an action packed movie along the lines of The Avengers might be disappointed with Fantastic Four, as Trank has a very different interpretation of their adventures it seems.

New Images From 'Fantastic Four,' Josh Trank Says It's Like A "Dark Amblin Movie"

26 February 2015 6:24 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

"You can't please all people sometimes," Miles Teller told MTV about mixed buzz surrounding "Fantastic Four." "When you shoot a movie, especially when it's with this movie and Josh Trank (he has a very specific tone whether it is 'Chronicle' or ['Fantastic Four')  but as an actor you don't really know what kind of movie it is until you see them cut it together. Now's the first time we saw any footage, and I was excited, and I know for the most part it seems like the consensus is good."  Okay, so it's not exactly a glowing endorsement, but perhaps a reminder that the movie is still months away, folks should probably chill out a bit. At any rate, a few new stills have arrived courtesy of Empire, and one word being tossed around in regards to tone is an interesting one: Amblin. Of course, that's Steven Spielberg »

Four New "Fantastic Four" Reboot Photos

26 February 2015 5:43 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

A couple of new photos from Josh Trank's "Fantastic Four" have gone online, each one featuring one of the film's main stars Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell. The shots come from Empire magazine who also spoke with Trank and writer/producer Simon Kinberg about the upcoming and decidedly more science-fiction oriented take on the material.

Trank labels it a distinctly less cartoonish approach and a "dark Amblin" movie with Kinberg adding: "there was an Amblin-style approach to the characterisation, and to contextualising everything in a real world."

Trank also says: "The original two films to me are very similar to a lot of recent movies that have come out, in terms of that kind of cartoonish. It's just not something that me and Simon (Kinberg) are interested in as storytellers. There's the opportunity to make something that is challenging and tragic and dramatic. The »

Marvel At New Fantastic 4 Stills

26 February 2015 4:26 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Empire

In anticipation for Josh Trank’s clean slate of the Fantastic Four (and the nay-sayers that are keen to stain it), four brand new stills from the film have popped up over at Empire, which will be appearing in their next issue. Unfortunately, the images are following the same guidelines as the teaser trailer from last month, giving away naff all other than that Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell will most certainly be appearing in it. Oh, and a bike. Did not know there was going to be a bike in the film. See, there’s news for you.

Pulling its story from the pages of Marvel’s Ultimate take on the Fantastic Four, Trank’s film will tread over a different origin of how Reed Richards and co. were bestowed their nifty gifts that are used to full effect to stop a deadly foe. »

Meet The Fantastic Four In New Images

26 February 2015 1:25 AM, PST | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Last month's teaser trailer gave us a teasing glimpse of Josh Trank's re-imagining of the Fantastic Four, and now Empire are continuing the tease with fur new images that give us a good look at Mr. Fantastic (Miles Teller), The Invisible Woman (Kate Mara), The Human Torch (Michael B. Jordan), and The Thing (Jamie Bell, pre his CGI rocky makeover). Not only that, we also get a glimpse of one of the movies possible bad guys with a shot of Tim Blake Nelson's Harvey Eldar, who, in the comics became the Ff's first enemy, The Mole Man. Fantastic Four's promo campaign is a weird one for a Summer blockbuster, with the movie coming out in August, there is a very short length of time for hype machine to gain full steam, so expect it to really go into full gear in the coming weeks. Released: August 7th Synopsis: Fantastic Four, »
