20th Century Fox is pulling out its secret weapon in advertising this summer’s Fantastic Four: a Kanye West track. The hypnotic drumbeats of the killer track play over two brief TV spots for the Josh Trank-directed superhero movie and actually work pretty effectively to help sell the troubled film as a fresher, edgier kind of comic-book movie.
Of course, because this is Fantastic Four, every time the film takes one step toward being accepted by the larger geek community, something makes it take another one back. And that appears to be the case with a new promotional poster debuted by Empire, which delivers a crushing blow to Jamie Bell’s Thing by revealing that the poor guy is missing a little more than just his pants. I don’t know whether to feel worse for him or any potential love interests down the road, but this Thing is clearly missing some… »

Marvel is serious about Atlanta's brand-new Pinewood Studios, and "Ant-Man" was the way they broke in what may well be their home for the next decade or more. Late last year, I was part of a group of journalists who were flown to Atlanta to tour the new facility, which is surprisingly huge, and to see a few days worth of shooting on what was at that point perhaps the most publicly troubled movie since Marvel kicked off this universe with "Iron Man." After all, Edgar Wright had dropped out of the film just before it began production, and the process of wrangling a new script and a new director was written about with widespread panic and scorn and skepticism. You will find few more stalwart fans of what Edgar Wright does than me, but in the end, I feel like he's a filmmaker who will always be at his »

Breaking: We’re hearing from the McU [via Vanity Fair] that Marvel has officially offered the directing job on their planned Black Panther movie to Selma director Ava DuVernay. The McU Exchange are reporting exclusively that Duvernay has now officially signed on the dotted line for the lucrative gig.
The film already has a released sate set for July 6, 2018 with the title character expected to show up in next year’s Captain America: Civil War.
The site has more.
“…part of the desire to hire DuVernay this early in the process (more than three years before Black Panther’s release date of July 6, 2018) is to have her on the set of Captain America: Civil War, which will feature the first »

With the current comic book boom under way, you’d expect Marvel to show some love for their first-ever character—Prince Namor, the Sub-Mariner. Since legal entanglements prevent Namor from showing up in a film, why not allow the king of the seas to meet the Agents of Shield?
Last year, it was reported that Marvel has ‘mostly’ regained the rights to the character of the Sub-Mariner, but with some confusing legal hurdles. Marvel’s big boss Kevin Feige has said, “There are entanglements that make it less easy. There are older contracts that still involve other parties that mean we need to work things out before we move forward on it.” So for the time being, Prince Namor languishes in limbo, while less popular characters like Ant-Man and the Black Panther beat him to the screen. This is ironic because the Sub-Mariner is the first character the company ever made, »

From Zoolander 2 to 23 Jump Street, with 100s in-between. Here's our rundown of the assorted movie sequels in the works...
Think Hollywood is bereft of original ideas? You just might after this. Here's our look at the assorted movie sequels currently in the works. Since we last did a list like this, we've dropped films that seem to have died a death - Wanted 2, Spring Breakers 2 - but we'll keep this rundown up to date over the coming month.
Without further ado...
23 Jump Street
Sony is pressing ahead with a third Jump Street movie, as well as a possible Jump Street vs Men In Black film, and a female-headlined spin-off. For 23 Jump Street specifically, Rodney Rothman is back and working on the script (he wrote the second one). It's unclear yet if Chris Miller and Phil Lord can find breathing space in their schedule to direct. Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill are both expected back, »
The newest look at Jamie Bell's The Thing from Fantastic Four comes in the form of a statue of the hero from an event in Spain, however it's not exactly clear where the picture was taken. But the image does answer the question Jason Lee's Brodie Bruce posed to Stan Lee in Kevin Smith's Mallrats: The Thing's dork isn't made out of orange rock like the rest of his body... Read More »

Summer is here, for some it’s still coming, as they wait for a variety of summer series that begin this month. For me winter is still here, it came (and I hope it doesn’t leave) with Game of Thrones—I don’t even remember spring. But the summer season is just beginning with amazing new entries in a variety of series. For one of those shows it is the beginning of the end. Falling Skies begins its final season June 28th and there are so many questions for us that need answered.
Flickering Myth had a great opportunity to sit and chat with Star Doug Jones, who plays the enigmatic Volm Cochise. I was able to talk to him about this upcoming season and what it means to the 2nd Mass. »

If you.re looking to brush up on the cinematic side of the franchise before Josh Trank.s Fantastic Four hits theaters later this summer, you.re going to have to put a little more effort into it than usual. Fox has pulled the last two films from digital platforms in preparation for the August release of the new film. According to The Hollywood Reporter, 2005.s The Fantastic Four and the sequel, 2007.s Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer have both been removed from iTunes and Amazon. Should you look for them, both are listed as "currently unavailable" on those services. The trade.s source says this move was made so as not to distract from the marketing push for the upcoming reboot, and so that there is no marketplace confusion should you expect to see Jessica Alba as the Invisible Woman and get Kate Mara instead. It does, »
If you were hoping to binge watch the original Fantastic Four movies in advance of the release of Josh Trank's reboot, you are out of luck unless you own the DVDs. 20th Century Fox has elected to remove both of Tim Story's original films from platforms like Amazon and iTunes so as to keep focus on the new version of the film. While manipulating the availability of films related to... Read More »

Jessica Alba really has become the Invisible Woman: Fox has removed all traces of hers and Chris Evans' Fantastic Four films from digital platforms as the studio prepares to release its 2015 reboot, starring Miles Teller and Kate Mara. Fox is rebooting its Fantastic Four film franchise this summer with the release of a new take on the comic book story that also stars Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell. But those hoping to download Fox's most recent Fantastic Four films (the 2005 and 2007 installments with Evans and Alba) on iTunes or Amazon are out of luck. Read More Michael B.

The third issue of Marvel’s mega-event drastically slows down the pace of the series by focusing primarily of Sheriff Strange’s hunt for the sinister Cabal and Doom’s existential identity crisis. But, even though the scope of the issue is much narrower than previous installments, the progression of the overall story continues uninterrupted, and everything that the mini-series is building to is left unhindered. Given the tendency of event comics to drag on needlessly (Secret Invasion, and Age of Ultron), seeing Secret Wars proceed into its middle act with full steam is a good omen of things to come.
Readers have already been introduced to Battleworld, and for those not reading any of the tie-ins, the main series does a good job of conveying the intricacies of all these semi-autonomous regions. »

Kate Mara was always the actress you’d recognise on screen but couldn’t quite work out where you’d seen her before, but not any more. The 32-year-old made numerous appearances with side roles in TV and film productions, but her breakthrough role came two years ago in Netflix’s outstanding political drama, House Of Cards.
Mara’s exposure led further up the chain to the point where she has now been cast as Sue Storm in Marvel’s rebooted Fantastic Four franchise as the superhero movie juggernaut continues to mercilessly romp through cinemas.
She will be taking up the role from Jessica Alba who starred in the 2005 film and its equally underwhelming 2007 sequel. The reboot will also see Michael B. Jordan taking over from Chris Evans, meaning that the inevitable crossover into the Avengers’ world will be seamless, as Evans – who now plays Captain America »

San Andreas has certainly been no disaster at the box office, having opened to an impressive $113 million worldwide.
The blockbuster movie, starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, opened in 60 markets around the globe and shot to the number one position domestically with $53.1 million (knocking Tomorrowland from the top spot) and added another $60 million from its international screenings. This is the biggest non-Fast and Furious or G.I. Joe opening for Dwayne Johnson, who many thought wasn’t able to helm a money making movie after the failure of Hercules last year.
San Andreas‘ $53.1 million is also way ahead of its predicted take of $40 million.
