Samurai Stormtrooper Art by Alessandro Uggeri

28 August 2014 1:52 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

I don’t think I should say too much about artist Alessandro Uggeri’s SamuraiTrooper design. I fear any further comments I make, other than that it’s a well-crafted piece of fan art, will cause a frenzy again. The last time I wrote an article involving a Samurai Stormtrooper, it caused a bit of a stir because it was retweeted by Jon Favreau. Before J.J. Abrams earned the Star Wars: Episode VII gig, Favreau was a fan favorite to take on the job, and his retweet and comment fueled those flames. 

With Rian Johnson taking on writing and directing duties for Episodes VIII and IX, and Gareth Edwards and Josh Trank helming the Star Wars standalone movies in the works, it’s seeming less likely that the man who kicked off the Marvel cinematic universe will get to play around in the Star Wars universe. We can hold out hope though, »

Take A Look At Doctor Doom In New Fantastic Four Leaked Set Photos

28 August 2014 10:54 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

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, »

Leaks! 'Fantastic Four' Green Screen Fights! Torch! Doom! Thing!

28 August 2014 10:13 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

How to approach this?


There was a leaked picture of a Visual Effects Bust used for reference on the green screen set for Josh Trank's reboot of The Fantastic Four, which didn't go to comic con and was pretty leak proof until this still made the rounds.

The still was of Ben Grimm in full The Thing mode, a character that will be inhabited by Jamie Bell in the film. After awhile of the still being out there, Trank tweeted it, confirming it was real, then the studio decided to start sending requests to pull it down. 

How to deal with this delicately?

Just blurry colors. What's a Gif?

Hi Fox!

Keep Trollin' Trollin' Trollin'

Anyway, The Fantastic Four seal has been broken with photos of Dr. Doom (Toby Kebbell from Rise of the Planet of the Apes) battling pre-cg The thing and The Human Torch coming in »

First look at Doctor Doom from Josh Trank's The Fantastic Four?

28 August 2014 1:02 AM, PDT | | See recent JoBlo news »

Last month we got (what might be) a first look at Jamie Bell's The Thing from The Fantastic Four, and now it's Doctor Doom's turn. Geek Pride has posted a couple of leaked images they claim are from the set of Josh Trank's new movie featuring the villain. It also looks like the Human Torch was involved with the scene that was being filmed when the pictures were taken, as well as an actor wearing a motion capture suit. Maybe it's Jamie Bell's »

First Look At 'Doctor Doom' In leaked Images From The Fantastic Four Reboot

27 August 2014 7:06 PM, PDT | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

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. »

Josh Trank Confirms First Look at the Thing in 'Fantastic Four'

24 August 2014 12:42 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

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

Trank Posts "Fantastic Four" Thing Photo?

24 August 2014 7:40 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Update: The Twitter account has been shutdown, in other words it was not legit. Whether that photo of The Thing is or not remains uncertain.

Original: A month ago, around the time of Comic Con, a photo was leaked of what was purported to be the new look of Ben Grimm in 'The Thing' mode in the upcoming "Fantastic Four" reboot.

20th Century Fox asked sites to take it down and it was quickly pulled, but it was never quite clear if it was an official look at the character.

With filming on the project now over, director Josh Trank has posted that same photo on what appears to be his Twitter account although it's new and hasn't been verified as yet.

He also answered some fan questions, amongst the key quotes he confirms Sue & Johnny Storm are siblings. This is Not found footage, and we'll get our first official look later this year. »

‘Fantastic Four’: First Look at The Thing? [Updated]

24 August 2014 7:27 AM, PDT | | See recent Screen Rant news »

[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.

In fact, having Chronicle director Josh Trank in the director’s chair has been the only element of the film that hardcore fans ...

Josh Trank unveils first look at The Thing in The Fantastic Four

24 August 2014 4:35 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

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 »

Director Josh Trank Unveils Photo of The Thing From Fantastic Four Reboot

24 August 2014 3:48 AM, PDT | | See recent Worst Previews news »

About a month ago, a photo of The Thing from the upcoming "Fantastic Four" reboot leaked online. It wasn't clear if it was an official look at the superhero, but 20th Century Fox quickly asked us to take it down. Now that director Josh Trank finished filming the movie, he posted that same photo on his Twitter account with the words: "Well, it's out. There's your first look at Ben." The helmer went on to answer a bunch of questions about the reboot. Unfortunately, there's one thing worth noting. We're not 100% sure that that's Trank's account since Twitter has yet to verify it. "Fantastic Four" is set to hit theaters on June 19th, 2015. Removed at the request of the studio. »

It’s pretty easy to guess what most of the characters will look like in the new Fantastic Four. It’s a safe bet, for example, that Reed Richards / Mr. Fantastic will look like Miles Teller, Sue Storm / Invisible Woman like Kate Mara, and Johnny Storm / Human Torch like Michael B. Jordan.

Update! Josh Trank Prankster Conducts Fantastic Four Q&A

23 August 2014 6:21 PM, PDT | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

If you'll remember, and I'm sure you will. Late last month during San Diego Comic-Con an image of what appeared to be a leaked set photo of The Thing (Ben Grimm) from Josh Trank's upcoming Fantastic Four film appeared online. 20th Century Fox never came out and denied its authenticity, but some people were still skeptical. Today, the director rejoined Twitter after a bit of a hiatus and tweeted out a confirmation of the image and a message confirming that filming had actually wrapped today. Now that we know the image is legit, do you like the new and improved version of The Thing? Update! Josh Trank just held an impromptu question and answer session on Twitter. He answered questions about: costumes, found footage rumors, Jamie Bell's motion-capture performance as The Thing, Toby Kebbell's Dr. Doom performance, Johnny and Sue connection, tone and the issue some fans have with Michael B. »

Rian Johnson swears: The new 'Star Wars' movies will have less CG, more practical f/x

20 August 2014 3:05 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) Not long from now, in this very galaxy, new "Star Wars" movies will emerge — not just a new trilogy kicked off by J.J. Abrams, but spinoffs as well, from the likes of Josh Trank and Gareth Edwards. Rian Johnson, the director of "Brick," "Looper" and three episodes of "Breaking Bad," is the filmmaker responsible for "Star Wars: Episode VIII," and possibly even "Episode IX." As such, he’s been on the set of Abrams’ "Episode VII," and knows much more behind-the-scenes details than … well, just about anybody. Johnson was the guest on a recent episode of Grantland’s Girls in Hoodies podcast, and while there wasn’t much he’s able to reveal about his upcoming "Star Wars" movie, he did say the new series will very much lean on practical, rather than computer-generated, effects — a notable change of pace from George Lucas’ divisive prequels, and closer to the style of the original trilogy. »
