‘Fantastic Four’ Footage, Cast Impress Exhibitors at CinemaCon

23 April 2015 12:52 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Coming off a record-setting $5.5 billion year at the worldwide box office, 20th Century Fox brought an impressive slate of movies and stars to CinemaCon on Thursday — including the quartet of “Fantastic Four” actors.

The studio acknowledged that this version of “Fantastic Four” is being closely watched by its core audience. “The fanboys will let you know if you don’t get it right,” said new studio co-chair Stacey Snider before introducing the quartet comprising Miles Teller, Michael B. Jordan, Kate Mara and Jamie Bell.

(In 2005, the studio also released a “Fantastic Four,” which grossed $330.6 million worldwide in box office.)

“We’re not supposed to say much about this,” Teller told the audience before the footage played. “Fantastic Four,” which will be released on Aug. 7, is a reimagining of Marvel’s superhero team. It centers on four young outsiders who teleport to an alternate universe, which changes their physical form. The »

The first clip has been released from director Brad Peyton’s upcoming disaster epic San Andreas, which sees Dwayne Johnson attempting to save Carla Gugino from a crumbling skyscraper. Well, several crumbling skyscrapers is probably a more apt description! Check it out below…

Film Review: ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’

21 April 2015 2:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Three years after saving New York from an alien apocalypse, Marvel’s superhero all-stars once again find the weight of the world — or, at least, an airborne chunk of Eastern Europe — thrust upon their mighty shoulders in “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” a super-sized spandex soap opera that’s heavy on catastrophic action but surprisingly light on its feet, and rich in the human-scale emotion that can cut even a raging Hulk down to size. Having gotten over the hump of assembling his six main characters in 2012’s “The Avengers,” returning writer-director Joss Whedon brings a looser, more inventive and stylish touch to this skillful follow-up, which finds our now S.H.I.E.L.D.-less defenders facing off against a man-made enemy more dangerous than any alien life form. Jump-starting the summer movie season on May 1, “Age” may well cool its heels in theaters until the dog days of August, »

The Surprisingly Prolific Comic Book Actors

20 April 2015 10:00 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Hugh Jackman has played Logan aka Wolverine in seven different films. It’s an impressive number that will shortly increase with a third solo Wolverine film and possibly X-Men:Apocalypse, although at the time of writing he has yet to be officially cast. A few other names are snapping at the heels of Jackman, notably the cast of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. If you include the forthcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron, Chris Evans has played Captain America four times (five if you include his appearance as Loki using magic to look like the first Avenger in Thor: The Dark World), Scarlett Johansson and Chris Hemsworth have portrayed Black Widow and Thor respectively four times each whilst the King of the McU, Robert Downey Jr. has made an impressive six appearances as Iron Man/Tony Stark (including his post-credit appearance in The Incredible Hulk).

Unfortunately for Hugh Jackman, as far as this article is concerned, »

New 'Fantastic Four' trailer gives us our best look yet at the team in action

19 April 2015 12:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

In one of those odd moments of synchronicity, just as fans were learning that Josh Trank would not be at the panel at Star Wars: Celebration where he was supposed to discuss his upcoming movie in the "Star Wars Anthology" series, the new trailer for "Fantastic Four" arrived online. This is the trailer where fans are finally going to get to see the things they've been curious about, and it gives some indication of what you can expect from the finished film. I'm still not sure what to think. The things I've been hearing about the film from source after source after source make me nervous, but there are things I like about this trailer. It's mainly just small things, interplay between the cast or the way they handle Reed's stretching as an effect, but that's all you can ever really take away from a trailer. More than anything, »

Superhero Showdown 2015 – Avengers: Age of Ultron vs Ant-Man vs The Fantastic Four

17 April 2015 12:19 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Gary Collinson on the 2015 superhero box office showdown…

Revisiting Last Year’S Predictions

Before we turn our attention to this year’s line-up of superhero movies, we’ll start as always by casting our eye back twelve months to last year’s predictions, as Marvel continued the build to Avengers: Age of Ultron with Captain America: The Winter Soldier as well as launching the cosmic side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Guardians of the Galaxy, Fox brought together its two X-Men timelines for X-Men: Days of Future Past, Sony killed the Spider-Man franchise (again) with The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

Last Year’s Prediction - “As for the biggest earner of the year, I can’t look past The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and I expect the sequel to pull in around $700 million, followed by Captain America: The Winter Soldier and X-Men: Days of Future Past with around $550 – $600 million apiece (if »

Flickering Myth’s 2015 Preview – Avengers: Age of Ultron

16 April 2015 2:18 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Gary Collinson previews Avengers: Age of Ultron

“I was designed to save the world. People would look to the sky, and see hope… I’ll take that from them first.”

There’s little doubt that – on paper, at least – 2015 is shaping up to be one of the biggest years in memory when it comes to blockbuster cinema, with the likes of Mad Max: Fury Road, Tomorrowland, San Andreas, Jurassic World, Terminator Genisys, Ant-Man, Mission: Impossible 5, The Fantastic Four and The Man from U.N.C.L.E. are all set to grace the big screen over the next few months. But before then Marvel Studios will kick-start the summer movie season in April (or early May, for those in the States) with what is perhaps the most anticipated of all the summer releases, as Joss Whedon reassembles Earth’s Mightiest Heroes for Marvel StudiosAvengers: Age of Ultron.

The honor will be presented April 23 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas as part of CinemaCon’s awards show. “It’s not very often that we have the opportunity to award an entire cast for their stellar performances,” noted Mitch Neuhauser, managing director of CinemaCon.

Fantastic Four,” which will be released by Fox on Aug. 7, is a reimagining of Marvel’s superhero team and centers on four young outsiders who teleport to an alternate universe, which alters their physical form.

Matthew Vaughn in talks to direct ‘Flash Gordon’

15 April 2015 10:54 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Alex Raymond’s sci-fi comic strip Flash Gordon has been hugely influential on pop culture. We’re a big fan of the newer comic series ourselves. And though we’ve gotten a 1980 camp classic movie adaptation, we’re due for another blockbuster size version on the big screen.

Matthew Vaughn, director of Kingsman, Kick-Ass, and X-Men: First Class, is in talks to direct Flash Gordon for Twentieth Century Fox, THR is reporting. The script for the film was written by J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay, who worked on Star Trek 3.

Currently, Vaughn is producing the upcoming Fantastic Four movie and Eddie the Eagle starring Hugh Jackman, but he has yet to line up another directing project following Kingsman. Flash Gordon would be his sixth film.

The middle of Spring actually means a new selection of summer blockbusters to look forward to, and with a ton of big-budget films slated to come out within the next few months and beyond, the summer of 2015 looks like one to remember.

From May 1st right through to the end of August, some of the movies on our list could wind up on year-end “best of” lists or even receive some Oscar talk by December.

First look at Jamie Bell as The Thing in 3 new Fantastic Four images

9 April 2015 10:46 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

It's offical. The Thing got an upgrade for the reboot of the Fantastic Four franchise, and he’s (thankfully) a lot less orange this time around.

Jamie Bell (Billy Elliot, The Adventures of Tintin) takes over the role of Ben Grimm – a.k.a. The Thing – from “The Shield”’s Michael Chiklis for August’s larger-than-life, universe-jumping retelling of the Fantastic Four. Joining Bell are Whiplash’s Miles Teller as Mister Fantastic, Kate Mara ("House of Cards") as Invisible Woman, and Michael B. Jordan (Fruitvale Station) as the Human Torch.

After the 2005’s Fantastic Four and 2007’s Rise of the Silver Surfer failed to win over its core audience, fans were skeptical of another big screen adaptation of their beloved Stan Lee-penned comic book.

However, with Chronicle’s upstart young director Josh Trank and its stacked cast, this summer’s Fantastic Fourcontinues to prove the naysayers wrong. After its »
