On Saturday, director Rian Johnson Skyped in to join Filmspotting’s 500th episode. He is in San Francisco, working on Star Wars: Episode VIII — A New Hope for a Good Star Wars Movie (that’s the official subtitle, you hadn’t heard?), and he mostly didn’t say anything about the project, except, “I’m really excited about all the things I can’t tell you.”
While we were all overjoyed when Disney and LucasFilm hired the indie director to helm the second and third films in the new trilogy, it left some people scratching their heads. Before he was hired he seemed uninterested in doing it, so why did he take the job? “The thought of it made me so completely joyfully happy. I wanted to to play in this world, of literally the first movie my dad put me in the car to see,” he said.
And how did he get the job? »

Disney/Lucasfilm has thus far this year announced three new directors for Star Wars movies. Josh Trank and Gareth Edwards are each going to be doing standalone spin-off films. But it's Looper helmer Rian Johnson who will be picking up from Jj Abrams and putting Star Wars: Episode VIII - and possibly Star Wars: Episode IX - together.
Chatting to the Filmspotting Podcast, Johnson admitted his absolute delight at landing the Star Wars job. "The thought of it made me so completely joyfully happy. I wanted to to play in this world, of literally the first movie my dad put me in the car to see".
Admitting that he's early in the process of making his new film, Johnson is currently hard at work at Lucasfilm, and »
Some are still buzzing with energy, while others are a little sad that it's all over for another year. There are even those dour sourpusses who feel this year was nothing but lackluster. Even if that's the case, Comic-Con 2014 wasn't without its surprises. Maybe there weren't as many as in years past. And the fact that neither Marvel nor DC announced any of its upcoming titles still stings. But, dang that footage! Both studios are clearly on the path to releasing two of the biggest movies of all time! It's clear that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Avengers: Age of Ultron will be vying to knock Avatar off its perch as the top grossing movie of all time. But seeing the latest and first footage from these superhero behemoths wasn't the only fun studios had with their fans and ever-expanding audience. There were a couple of curveballs thrown »
While 20th Century Fox and Josh Trank elected not to showcase anything related to the upcoming reboot of The Fantastic Four, a new image has been making the rounds and purports to be the first look at the design for The Thing in the Marvel superhero film. The image has been tweeted numerous times (and taken down just as many) and features a watermark for Justified Films which does not appear to have any connection to The Fantastic Four production. The image is a hazy look at a green screen »

The reference model for the new The Thing in Josh Trank's Fantastic Four movie has landed online...
Josh Trank and his team are currently hard at work on the big screen reboot of the Fantastic Four, which is set to arrive in cinemas next June. Thus far though, there's been very little from the production itself, once the dust had settled over the fan-splitting casting for the movie.
However, this is worth a look: it's a photo of The Thing from the new Fantastic Four movie. More to the point, it's the reference model for the character that's being used on the shoot.
Jamie Bell is playing The Thing/Ben Grimm in the new movie, incidentally.
The image came to light on the Twitter feed of Justified Films, although it's now been deleted. It has appeared pretty much everywhere else, though...

Apparently Fox decided not to bring any marketing for The Fantastic Four to Comic-Con this weekend, even though the Josh Trank-directed picture is currently shooting in Louisiana and will debut before next year's convention. However, a very unofficial image has leaked out into the interwebs that shows what is apparently the film's new version of The Thing. Jamie Bell is playing the rocky humanoid hero, aka Ben Grimm, and thankfully it looks like he'll be doing so through motion capture. It looks pretty good, but the bar was previously set laughably low by poor Michael Chiklis' rock suit in the last effort. Hit the jump to check it out. Also starring Michael B. Jordan as Human Torch, Kate Mara as Invisible Girl, Miles Teller as Mr. Fantastic, and Toby Kebbell as Dr. Doom, The Fantastic Four is set to open June 19, 2015. Here's a look at the (top half, »

Apparently the above photo is from the set of Josh Trank's Fantastic Four reboot. The photos leaked out from Justified Films, but the tweet with the photo has since been taken down. This is definitely a pretty cool design, but not a final one. I came across the photo at Cbm, who says that this is most likely a set sculpt that visual effects crews use for lighting references when they go back and insert the finally character in the movie digitally.
I thought for sure Fox would show something off from this movie during their panel at Comic-Con, but unfortunately they didn't. We have this to tide us over until something official is released, though. There's no confirmation that this is actually from the movie but it came with the following hashtags:

Fox has aroused our curiosity at its Comic-Con panel last night by opting not to include anything for Josh Trank’s upcoming Fantastic Four reboot, which finds Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell stepping into the key roles of Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic, Sue Storm/The Invisible Woman, Johnny Storm/The Human Torch and Ben Grimm/The Thing (respectively). However, we may get a few scoops out of the tentpole yet.
A new image (above) has hit the web, depicting what looks to be the the reference CGI bust of the Thing being used on Trank’s film. A mysterious Twitter account called @justifiedfilms, which has since been deleted, tweeted out the pic, which of course has been immortalized on the web. For those who don’t know, a reference bust is essentially a placeholder marker intended for the computer animators, who use it to then »

If you were paying attention to the online chatter about Comic-Con last night—and we don’t blame you if you weren’t—you probably noticed a lot of griping. The consensus seemed to be that 20th Century Fox's presentation was underwhelming. Fans were asking where the promotion for “The Fantastic Four” could have been (for that matter, Paramount did not produce any “Terminator: Genesis” promotion). “How hard is it," the thinking went, "for Paramount or 20th Century Fox to make a poster, a teaser trailer or unveil some costumes?" Well before this weekend, the studio confirmed that director Josh Trank and his cast—currently shooting in Louisiana—would not appear at Comic-Con. But it looks like someone tried to slightly counter or address the mounting complaints. A mystery Twitter account @justifiedfilms (which has since been deleted) tweeted out a picture of what looks like to be the reference CGI bust of the Thing, »

We exclusively broke that Josh Trank's Fantastic Four was not going to be represented at this year's Comic Con, so no one was suspecting a photo to leak from the thus far compeltely locked down production.
Much like how we saw raptors from Jurassic World, a random Twitter account, this time one called @justifiedfilms (don't even try, the account is long gone now).
It doesn't look like the owner of the Twitter account is actually working on the film, but is part of Louisiana's film production circle, so this is probably a reference bust (for a CGI thing) one of his friends photographed.
I like the look, but - dearest crew members - social media is not your friend.
Hope everyone keeps their job over the weekend.

JustifiedFilms just posted a photo, claiming that it's from the set of the upcoming "Fantastic Four" reboot, giving us a look at that The Thing will look like in the new film. Check out the photo below. The Thing will be created in post-production, but a bust is still needed for lots of reasons, including lighting and to make it easier for actors to interact with the character. "Fantastic Four" is directed by Josh Trank (Chronicle) and is set to hit theaters on June 19th, 2015. Photo: (click to enlarge) »
As promised by writer-producer Simon Kinberg, The Fantastic Four was absent from 20th Century Fox’s Hall H presentation at Comic-Con yesterday. However, fans wanting to get a glimpse of Marvel’s First Family may be interested in an image that has arrived online through Justified Films on Twitter, which claims to show how Jamie Bell’s Ben Grimm will appear as The Thing in the Josh Trank-directed reboot. Take a look via Cbm…
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) as Doctor Doom, Reg E. Cathey (The Wire) as Dr. Storm, and Tim Blake Nelson (The Incredible Hulk) as Harvey Elder.

Director Josh Trank was rumored to be bringing The Fantastic Four reboot cast to Hall H today as a surprise during the Fox panel. That didn't happen. But we may have a special treat for fans anyway. It seems a disgruntled crewmember has taken a spy pic of The Thing, sharing it on Twitter. Take a look:

Is this what Jamie Bell will look like when he transforms into The Thing? We're not sure, but it's a pretty good fake if that's what it is. The above picture appears to be a set sculpt of Ben Grimm after he transforms into his mighty alter ego. It will be used for lighting reference while shooting against green screen, and »
Possibly The Thing from the 'Fantastic Four' Reboot! We'll keep you updated. #Hype! pic.twitter.com/jJhS2xw8oo— Superhero Report (@SuperheroReport) July 26, 2014 Even though multiple sources told us that 20th Century Fox would not have any footage from Josh Trank.s The Fantastic Four at San Diego Comic-Con, many (including myself) felt disappointed when the Fox panel in Hall H concluded after some incredible footage from Matthew Vaughn.s Kingsman: The Secret Service -- with nary a mention of next summer.s Four film. Lo and behold, we all come back to our computers to find the above, leaked image waiting for us. What is it, exactly? Well, the Twitter account of Florida-based Justified Films went a little hashtag crazy to say that it is a leaked image of The Thing from The Fantastic Four. You can tell that there is a lot of green screen going »
Justified Films have posted an image that appears our first look at The Thing, Ben Grimm's rock-like transformed state, from Josh Trank's Fantastic Four reboot. This looks to be a on set sculpt that visual effects crews use for lighting references when they go back and insert the character digitally. Earlier today, 20th Century Fox surprisingly chose not to include any material from Trank's Fantastic Four at their Comic-Con panel, but instead we have this to chew on. And for me, this is probably better than anything they could've officially released.

This year's San Diego Comic-Con is going to be jam-packed with all kinds of huge comic book movie news. While nothing has been officially confirmed, fans around the world are expecting to hear big announcements from both Marvel Studios and Warner Bros./DC Comics, whom we expect to confirm new projects and perhaps even reveal a few new casting choices. Unfortunately, there is at least one 2015 superhero flick that we won't be seeing anything from at this year's big expo: Josh Trank's The Fantastic Four. Speaking with Latino-Review, producer/writer Simon Kinberg confirmed that next year's big Fantastic Four reboot will not have a presence at this year's Comic-Con - despite the fact that 20th Century Fox is hosting a panel this year in the San Diego Convention center's famous Hall H. Asked if fans can expect any kind of footage or big reveal, Kinberg said, "I can definitively »
There's no official announcement, and some comments from actor Michael B. Jordan indicated it was unlikely. Now, producer Simon Kinberg has one and for all put to bed the speculation about Josh Trank's upcoming "Fantastic Four" reboot appearing at the San Diego Comic Con this week.
Kinberg tells Latino Review that the reason for the absence is purely one of practicality - they're still filming, on a very tight deadline, and there just isn't any material ready to show yet:
"No, I can definitively officially tell you that there will not be anything from Fantastic Four at this year's Comic Con. We are still very much in the middle of shooting and we don't want to show anything until it's ready and it's not ready yet.
We want the first stuff that we show from the film to really blow people away, and it will but we have got to wait until it's ready. »

In a recent interview with Latino-Review, screenwriter Simon Kinberg talked in-depth about two of Fox's upcoming comic book movies, X-men: Apocalypse and Josh Trank's The Fantastic Four. Since most of you don't seem too thrilled about The Fantastic Four, we'll start with X-men stuff first. Simon Kinberg was asked to compare Fox's X-men movies to Marvel's phase structure. The answer is we really do think more broadly than one movie at a »

If you were hoping to get a first look at Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell as the Fantastic Four at Comic-Con this weekend, then I’m afraid you’re out of luck. The Josh Trank-directed reboot was absent from 20th Century Fox’s schedule for its Hall H presentation on Friday, and now writer / producer Simon Kinberg has stated categorically that Fox has no Fantastic Four surprise in store.
“I can definitively officially tell you that there will not be anything from The Fantastic Four at this year’s Comic Con,” Kinberg tells Latino-Review. “We are still very much in the middle of shooting and we don’t want to show anything until it’s ready and it’s not ready yet.

San Diego Comic-Con is upon us once again, and what better way then to have an Exclusive chat with Simon Kinberg.
Kinberg and I spoke about all things going on with Fantastic Four (which is currently filming) and clear up some rumors spreading throughout the web, especially about the film coming to this year’s Comic-Con. He also speaks about where he sees the X-Men franchise going in the future and more.
Here is what he had to say:
Lr: So how’s it going with Fox and comic book movies that you are involved in?
Simon Kinberg: Good, really good actually! It’s a pretty great time to be making comic book movies at Fox I have to say. They »
