Fantastic Four: concept art shows early Planet Zero

25 August 2015 7:05 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Some early concept art from Josh Trank's Fantastic Four production shows us the Planet Zero that never was...

By now, both critics and audiences have delivered their verdict on Fox's ill-fated Fantastic Four. But even as the dust settles on the film itself, stories are still emerging of its troubled production and the movie that never was.

As we understand it, based on the bits of information flying around over the past few weeks, director Josh Trank's Fantastic Four reboot was, among other things, subjected to a fairly drastic budget cut during post-production, which appeared to result in the deletion of several characters and plotlines from early drafts of the script. We've heard how a major action scene featuring The Thing was excised from the final cut, as was a segment involving the FantastiCar.

For evidence, look at Birth Movies Death's recent piece, which provides an outline of »

No Sweet Science To Be Found in Ron Wilson’s ‘Super Boxers’

23 August 2015 6:56 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Marvel Graphic Novel #8: Super Boxers (1983)

Plot and Pencils by Ron Wilson

Script by John Byrne

Inks by Armando Gil

Colors by Bob Sharen, Steve Oliff, John Tartaglione, Joe D’Esposito & Mark Bright

Published by Marvel Comics

Among some comic reviewers, there’s an understanding that you don’t talk about the cover of the comic that you’re writing about. It’s tied into that old saying “don’t judge a book by its cover” and it would be a bit like critiquing a movie based on the movie poster in the theater lobby. One is completely separate from the other.

All of that said, the best thing about Ron Wilson’s 1983 graphic novel Super Boxers is Bill Sienkiewicz’s awesome cover.

The official title of the publication is Marvel® Graphic Novel No. 8: Super Boxers. Marvel’s then still young graphic novel line had already produced a number »

Crush of the week: Chris Evans

21 August 2015 10:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

‘More than most in his shoes, Evans oozes a weary kindness, and that is my catnip’

It’s not an obvious movie star name, is it? For years, the most famous person to bear it was a wildly successful English TV presenter whose biggest draw was his anarchic take on Friday night telly. But this Chris Evans, one of the biggest film stars in the world, is very different, and I have the biggest crush on him.

I first saw him in Not Another Teen Movie, a 2001 parody of, you guessed it, teen movies. Then he was in 2005’s Fantastic Four, playing up his greatest gift: an affable, old-fashioned charm. Evans, 34, is from Boston, and the city’s a good metaphor for the man: solid, unflashy, still kind of earthy, despite its proximity to decadent New York. He is often compared to a puppy by admiring internet-dwellers, and you can see why: big eyes, »

Captain America: Civil War footage, huge Star Wars announcement , Toy Story 4 – D23 Recap

21 August 2015 3:17 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Disney don’t do Comic Con. They’re better than that. They’ve got their own thing going on. It’s called the D23 Expo.

Scary number connotations aside (seriously, Google ‘the number 23’…or just rent the Jim Carrey movie), D23 is an enormously important event in the movie news calendar. This year saw huge announcements on Pixar’s upcoming slate (revealing Toy Story 4 through to 116 – Joke), the first look at Captain America: Civil War and Star Wars land.

This special preview of next month’s Flickering Myth Movie Show has our esteemed panel discussing the Expo’s announcements, and a bunch of other stuff, too. It also reveals what, exactly, ‘D23′ stands for. Check it our below…

The full September edition of the Flickering Myth Movie Show – including an in-depth look at the Fantastic Four fiasco (alliteration points) – goes up on Sunday 31st August. Set a reminder in your generic smart phone device. »

First look at Michael Chiklis in Gotham, Ben McKenzie says season 2 will deliver “exactly what the fans want to see”

21 August 2015 1:18 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Entertainment Weekly has released the first image of Michael Chiklis (The Shield, Fantastic Four) as Gcpd Captain Nathaniel Barnes in the upcoming second season of Gotham

Meanwhile, speaking to EW, Ben McKenzie has been discussing where he thinks the first season of the show went wrong, and how they plan to address it in season two: “I think we made a mistake relatively early on in trying to introduce a villain and take care of that villain in one episode: catch them, send them to Arkham, do whatever. That was just a mistake. We should’ve never done it…  The audience really wants to understand who these people are and live with them, sit with them and enjoy them. Whether they’re evil or good, they are entertaining. So that’s what we’re doing in season 2. [It’s] really kick ass. I think it’s exactly what the fans want to see. »

Why The Incredibles 2 will be the Fantastic Four film you've always wanted to see

19 August 2015 10:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

It's fair to say that Fox's latest attempt to turn Fantastic Four into a hit movie franchise has gone up in the kind of flames that'd make Johnny Storm jealous. Director Josh Trank found himself entrenched in battles with cast, crew and studio bosses during a turbulent shoot that resulted in a deeply-flawed film that's a hodge-podge of competing visions.

A critical panning, box office flop and failure to catch on with the wider public (much like the Tim Story movies that preceded it) point to one question: when will fans get the Fantastic Four movie they truly deserve?

Kate Mara's wig and 5 other reasons Fantastic Four flopped hard

The answer lies away from the 20th Century Fox fanfare and over by Pixar's Luxo lamp. Brad Bird's The Incredibles 2 is on the horizon, and if its 2004 predecessor proved anything it's that the Pixar crew know exactly how to do Fantastic Four right. »

13 Comic Book Villains That Movies Ruined Worse Than Dr Doom

19 August 2015 7:13 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Sony, Fox, Marvel Studios

By now everyone’s spat up their fair share of bile regarding Josh Trank’s horrendous Fantastic Four reboot, and one of the most vocal complaints about the movie is that it does a terrible job bringing Dr. Doom (or merely Doom, as he’s known here), to the big screen.

Toby Kebbell was clearly game for the part, but he’s put underneath performance-encroaching make-up for his brief screen time as the villain (showing up for just 15 minutes in the film’s rushed finale), his motives are lazy, and he simply isn’t established as a palpable threat.

Hell, so bad was the new Doom that most fans were left to admit that the widely-ridiculed Dr. Doom from the 2005 and 2007 movies played by Julian McMahon was substantially less awful. At least in those films Doom had significant amounts of screen time, looked somewhat similar to »

Jessica Alba Knows She's Been In "So Many" Bad Movies

18 August 2015 4:30 PM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

With films like "The Love Guru," "Valentine’s Day," "Good Luck Chuck" and "Fantastic Four" on her resume, Jessica Alba is aware not all of her films are critical darlings. "I mean, there's so many bad ones," she admits in a new interview with Allure. "But they're fun. You learn from every experience you have, right?" Though she seems comfortable with her IMDb credits, Alba may still have a regret or two. "I wish I found my voice as a person earlier," she continues, "because I felt like I had to just shut up and do what they wanted me to, even though it was against how I really felt." "I never wanted to play into a stereotype, where its like, Oh, you’re just the girl who gets saved by the guy, and she doesn’t know how to make decisions, and she gets overwhelmed with all this stuff happening around her, »

17 August 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Week in Movies discusses the last seven days in cinema – mainly the continuing failiure of Fantastic Four, a bunch of Star Wars Universe news, the plot of Toy Story 4 and the latest casting in the Baywatch movie…

The below is excerpt from the weekly Flickering Myth Super Newsletter. Subscribe here to get it delivered to your inbox every Sunday (a whole day ahead of everyone else!), along with a digest of the week’s best trailers, articles, exclusive competitions and online streaming picks.

The quality of Fantastic Four 2015 and Uggie’s death were in no way related.

How 'Straight Outta Compton' Became a Summer Blockbuster

17 August 2015 7:03 AM, PDT | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Grossing an estimated $60 million this weekend, the N.W.A biopic Straight Outta Compton has already been established as one of summer's most unlikely non-franchise blockbusters and bona fide box-office smashes, dwarfing the openings of higher-profile offerings such as Fantastic Four and Terminator Genisys. (And, if that number holds, it will have had a better first weekend than even Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, the crowned king of this season's name-brand entries which debuted with a domestic haul of $55.5 million according to Box Office Mojo.) But in hindsight, Compton's sleeper-success story isn't that surprising at all. »

9 Reasons Fantastic Four Is A Fantastic Fail

17 August 2015 4:03 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »


Fox just can’t seem to get this right. Their previous attempts at bringing Marvel’s First Family to life on the big screen (Fantastic Four and Fantastic Four: Rise Of The Silver Surfer) were massive disappointments. Those films had spots of brightness in the films (such as the brilliant chemistry between Michael Chiklis and Chris Evans) and a tone that was more or less consistent with the comics. But those things were countered by stupid decisions like turning Galactus into a giant cloud and the incredibly bad casting of Julian McMahon as Doom and Jessica Alba as the Invisible Woman.

I had hoped that the third time would be the charm with Fox and the Ff. Even though they were using the awful Ultimate Fantastic Four origin as opposed to Stan Lee and Jack Kirby’s original take and even though the film was intended to be a »

Ranking 2015's summer blockbusters from worst to best: Is Mad Max better than Jurassic World?

16 August 2015 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Summer starts early when it comes to blockbuster movies - this year we saw Fast & Furious 7 and Avengers: Age of Ultron hit cinemas in April, with big movie following big movie as the weeks rolled on.

But which popcorn movie had you jumping for joy and which had you running for the exits? Digital Spy has ranked all of 2015's major tentpole releases below - but which movie's top of your list?

15. Terminator Genisys

He came back! But deep down Arnie probably should have stayed away from the role that turned him into a movie star some 30 years ago. Terminator Genisys was a jumbled, tired retread of the franchise's former glories that made one thing abundantly clear: if you're going to make a Terminator movie, it better be directed by James Cameron.

14. Fantastic Four

Fox's bid to resurrect Marvel's first family felt like a disaster from day one. A »

WB Drops Another Bomb: 'U.N.C.L.E.' Flops Disastrously in North America

15 August 2015 7:31 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'The Man From U.N.C.L.E.' with Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer. 'The Man from U.N.C.L.E.' box office: Bigger domestic flop than expected? Before I address the box office debacle of Warner Bros.' The Man from U.N.C.L.E., I'd like remark upon the fact that 2015 has been a notable year at the North American box office. That's when the dinosaurs of Jurassic World smashed Hulk and his fellow Halloween-costumed Marvel superheroes of Avengers: Age of Ultron. And smashed them good: $636.73 million vs. $457.52 million. (See also: 'Jurassic World' beating 'The Avengers' worldwide and domestically?) At least in part for sentimental (or just downright morbid) reasons – Paul Walker's death in a car accident in late 2013 – Furious 7 has become by far the highest-grossing The Fast and the Furious movie in the U.S. and Canada: $351.03 million.
