Review: 'Fortitude' a thriller that depends on location, location, location

11 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The idea that the location of a movie or TV show is a character in itself has become so overused in recent years that critics were startled to hear "Togetherness" co-creator Mark Duplass say at press tour that Los Angeles was not a significant character in the show, which they could have really set anywhere. And even the grand champion of the Location As Character shows, "The Wire," could have probably been set in a lot of different American cities that had seen better days; Baltimore was just the one David Simon knew best. With "Fortitude," a new thriller debuting tomorrow night at 10 on Pivot(*), the location is so unique, specific and important to the story that the show would have no reason to exist without it. At its core, the plot is a familiar mystery about murder in a close-knit community that isn't used to crime on this level »

Josh Trank and Simon Kinberg discuss The Fantastic Four trailer, video commentary released

27 January 2015 11:56 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Earlier today 20th Century Fox released the first trailer for Josh Trank’s reboot of The Fantastic Four (which you can view here), and this afternoon both Trank and writer Simon Kinberg have been speaking exclusively to Empire about the trailer’s debut.

“We live in a time where there’s a required instant gratification from audiences,” says Trank to the magazine. “That’s a fun challenge in terms of putting together this teaser, picking and choosing how much you’re actually giving away.”

Kinberg continued: “What we’re doing is quite different, and we want people to get a sense of it. There is a mystery, and the slow immersion into that is part of the experience of what will ultimately be the movie. We wanted it to feel different and represent what’s unique about the film. It has a little more restraint, maybe, than some other trailers these days. »

Let's take a closer look at the first 'Fantastic Four' teaser

27 January 2015 11:34 AM, PST | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Considering that it's scheduled to premiere this summer, there's still a surprising dearth of information about 20th Century Fox's upcoming Fantastic Four reboot. Even Tuesday morning's trailer is rather tightlipped, with no hint of plot or dialogue to be found outside of a grand monologue about humanity's thirst for knowledge—delivered by The Wire's Reg E. Cathey, who plays Dr. Franklin Storm in the film. But that doesn't mean there's nothing to learn here. »

Teaser trailer and poster for The Fantastic Four

27 January 2015 6:49 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

20th Century Fox has unveiled the first teaser trailer for Josh Trank’s The Fantastic Four, which debuts in cinemas this summer, and you can view it below as well as the first poster…

The reboot has suffered a wave of negative rumours, from reshoots, creative differences and the fact that everything has been rather quiet on the film. But with the first official behind-the-scenes images, trailer and poster, it looks like the marketing machine is now well underway…

The Fantastic Four is set for release on August 7th with Josh Trank directing a cast that includes Miles Teller (Whiplash) as Mr. Fantastic, Kate Mara (American Horror Story) as the Invisible Woman, Michael B. Jordan (Fruitvale Station) 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 First Teaser for Fantastic Four Has Finally Arrived

27 January 2015 6:32 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

For a while there, it seemed like maybe the Fantastic Four reboot was as imaginary as Stan Lee wished the Roger Corman version was. But here, at last, with barely more than six months left until its release, is our first teaser. Sorry if you want a lot of footage of the superhero quartet in action and using their powers or even showing off their powers, because this is still only a slight look at what we have to look forward to. Still, what’s here is pretty, um, fantastic. There’s voiceover narration from The Wire and House of Cards actor Reg E. Cathey, who plays Dr. Franklin Storm — father of Johnny and Sue. There are a mere hints at The Thing and Human Torch in transformed mode. Mostly, though, this is interestingly Interstellar-like in the story it’s teasing. If we didn’t know it was a superhero movie, I »

First official behind-the-scenes images from The Fantastic Four, trailer expected today

26 January 2015 11:35 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It looks like the marketing campaign for 20th Century Fox’s The Fantastic Four is finally about to get underway! Amid rumours that the trailer will land today, Collider has posted the first official behind-the-scenes images from the reboot, which gives us a look at Michael B. Jordan in costume as The Human Torch (flame off), along with director Josh Trank on set…

“I think a lot of [the rumours about the film having problems] is stemming from the fact that we’ve consciously decided to not release anything official,” states Trank. “This isn’t like The Avengers. Even when the first Avengers came out, there were four other movies that people were familiar with. The suits and the tone and the look and the feel. So they could release those things or drop them on Twitter. With Simon on the X-Men movies, there were other movies that came before the last X-Men movie so Bryan [Singer] could »

Gotham, Ep. 1.12, “What The Little Bird Told Him” is charged with shocks & chilling development

19 January 2015 6:31 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Gotham Season 1, Episode 12: ‘What The Little Bird Told Him’

Written by Ben Edlund

Directed by Eagle Egilsson

Airs Mondays at 8pm Et on Fox

In this week’s Gotham, Gordon returns to the Gotham City Police Department to regain his Detective rank, but in order to do that, he has to prove himself to Commissioner Loeb by bringing in the Arkham Asylum inmate that escaped in “Rogues’ Gallery” under his watch. This episode shows Gordon revitalized and more focused, with the understanding that he needs to be at the Gcpd and nowhere else; it’s where he wants to be, and where he can do the most good. We have seen Gordon be all gung ho before, as in “Penguins Umbrella”, but this time he’s taking charge and asserting himself, whereas before, he was acting reckless, with unrealistic goals.

While Gordon is busy reclaiming his position at the Gcpd, »

Judy Greer promises lots of comedy and “comedic improv” in Ant-Man

19 January 2015 4:44 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The trailer for Ant-Man was released a couple of weeks ago and many were surprised by the sombre tone. Given the movie is directed by Peyton Reed (I Love You, Man) and written by Adam McKay (Anchorman) with Edgar Wright (The World’s End) and Joe Cornish (Attack the Block) having also previously worked on the project, many thought it would be more comedic compared to Captain America: The Winter Soldier. In fact, several of our writers (and the Flickering Myth Podcast) theorised that a more serious trailer had been cut to stick with the “Marvel style”, while the actual movie would be tonally different.

In an interview with Ant-Man star Judy Greer, she seemed to back up this theory, “I haven’t seen it yet but there was a lot of comedy on set and we did a lot of comedic improv,” she told IGN Movies.

Queer As Folk cast - Then and Now: What the show's stars did next

17 January 2015 3:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

A Russell T Davies TV project is always something to be excited about. From gifting us Queer as Folk to saving Doctor Who, he has given us a lot to be grateful for over the years. Hence why his various comeback series on Channel 4, E4 and online later this month are being greeted with such a sense of anticipation.

Cucumber, Banana and Tofu come 16 years after Davies shook up TV with Queer as Folk and his new shows look likely to be just as exciting, exploring the passions and pitfalls of 21st century gay life with a candid sense of humour.

But will it create as many stars as Davies's previous Channel 4 series? Here's what happened to the Queer As Folk stars after it ended in 2000.

After playing the sexually rampant Stuart, Gillen landed a role in what many critics claim to be the "greatest »

Exclusive: Mark Millar talks the Fantastic Four reboot, “everything I’ve seen looks good”

15 January 2015 6:31 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Yesterday we brought you the exclusive word from Kingsman: The Secret Service director and The Fantastic Four producer Matthew Vaughn, who has seen the reboot and praised the work of Josh Trank (Chronicle). Today we bring you a snippet from our chat with Mark Millar, whose comic book is the basis for Kingsman: The Secret Service, who gave us his thoughts on the Fantastic Four reboot.

“I’ve seen little bits, but not the full [movie],” Millar told us. “There is a cut, but I haven’t seen it yet”.

“Everything I’ve seen looks good. I think Josh Trank is such a brilliant director that I sort of relaxed about it. I think it will work out good.”

“Fox are very clever [with directors],” Millar added. “They got James Mangold for The Wolverine, they got Matthew [Vaughn] for X-Men: First Class, and then Bryan Singer in for X-Men: Days of Future Past. And »

14 January 2015 12:18 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Amazon Studios stands to catch up to Netflix with its increasing range of quality original content online. Perhaps "Bosch" can help them out on that front. Based on the best-selling novel series by Michael Connelly, "Bosch" finds a revered Lapd detective (Titus Welliver) on the brink of unraveling his career and his personal life after fatally shooting a suspect under custody during a field investigation gone wrong. Bosch tries to salvage his reputation, even as new evidence uncovered from a cold case dredges up past demons that threaten to overwhelm him.  Featuring impressive La-based location shooting and snippets of what's sure to be a thrilling collection of performances (the supporting cast includes Annie Wershing ("24"), Jamie Hector ("The Wire") and Lance Reddick (also "The Wire"), the "Bosch" trailer promises a dark look at Los Angeles but a bright future for Amazon.  "Bosch" will be available »

• Michael K Williams’s guide to being a badass

• The Gambler first look review

Michael K Williams is sitting in a hotel in midtown New York wearing a black T-shirt that reads: “I can’t breathe.” Those were the final words of Eric Garner, the black man who died last July after a police officer held him in a chokehold on Staten Island, another part of the city. Last month, when a grand jury decided not to indict anyone in connection with the death, protests sprang up all over the Us. Williams’s choice of clothing isn’t fashionable: it’s just something he feels duty-bound to do, a reminder of where he’s come from. »
