Easter Egg in The Fantastic Four trailer reveals potential plot point

1 hour ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Now that we’ve seen the trailer for The Fantastic Four, it’s time to start the frame by frame analysis to see if there are any hidden gems tucked away. Director Josh Trank had already announced that there was an Easter Egg waiting to be found, and it looks like Yahoo! Movie News were the first to get there.

During one of the shots of Kate Mara in the Baxter Building, there is a sequence on numbers on the corner screen that read 23.21.190.125, which is obviously an IP address. If you plug that into your browser, you will be linked to either a Wikipedia entry, a Comic Vine page, a Marvel Wiki entry or a Google image search results page. But they all point to the same thing.

Latveria – the home of Doctor Doom in the comics.

There were rumours from a “20th Century Fox employee” who claimed that »

Movie Review: Project Almanac

4 hours ago | Destroy the Brain | See recent Destroy the Brain news »

Before we even leave the driveway with this review, let’s establish a few things. I saw trailer for Project Almanac late last year, around autumn, and was utterly appalled by how vapid the film looked. A found footage film about a group of high school teens who make a fantastic discovery that changes their life for the better but then for the worse? I mean, the plot synopsis itself isn’t that distinctive but by pairing it with the found footage aesthetic, Project Almanac was doomed to be compared to the surprise hit Chronicle and the trailer did it no favors by following the exact same beats as the Chronicle trailer did. Worse, the time travel plot was so clearly going down the same route as The Butterfly Effect, I would’ve bet a c-note on it. I had zero interest in the film and so, when I went in to see it, »

Project Almanac Review

12 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The found footage genre is a peculiar one. It rests its laurels on building realism through the urgency and immediacy of the filmed footage. However, quite often, the characters in these films go to such extreme lengths to shoot this footage that one wonders why they are committing to capturing so much extraneous material. Every so often, a genre film will use the recordings in a chilling or original way. However, much of the time, having a character record all of the events on a video camera comes off as a contrived gimmick. The only way a film of this sort can be successful is if the story would not have worked as effectively with a regular, multi-camera staging.

The biggest problem with Project Almanac, a new sci-fi drama aimed at teens, is how rarely its writers convince us that the story should be told through the immediate presence of a video camera. »

Thoughts on the The Fantastic Four trailer – Flickering Myth Reaction

29 January 2015 1:37 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Flickering Myth staff react…

Well, it’s finally here. Despite some theories that this was going to be another Roger Corman attempt to keep hold of the franchise rights and nothing else, it seems as though Josh Trank’s The Fantastic Four (or is that Fant4stic?) is very real. So, what did the writing and editorial staff of Flickering Myth make of it?

Chris Cooper: At no point have I understood the hate for this project. Okay, maybe the possible Dr Doom origin story. Anyway…the trailer looks good! I was a fan of both Evans and Chiklis but what I see here looks cool. The trailer did exactly what it needed to do: Make me interested.

Manny Camacho: I’m completely unimpressed. It looks to distract with visuals and still seemingly lacks a cohesive story that will aide in bridging the ridiculous casting choices. The teaser reminded »

Marvelous Da7e 80: 'Fantastic Four' Teases and Agent Carter Calls Black Widow

28 January 2015 2:02 PM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Welcome To Issue 80!

If This Is Your First Time Here: Welcome! This is my weekly column where I talk about superhero movie news, rumors and speculation. 

This Week: How are we feeling about Fantastic Four now that we've seen it? And on Agent Carter, are they about to reveal Black Widow's origin story?

Yesterday we were graced with our first look at Josh Trank’s version of Fantastic Four for 20th Century Fox. Michael B Jordan, Kate Mara, Miles Teller and a sometimes rocky Jamie Bell debuted with Chronicle color correction to show off some scientific looking stuff, a rock breaking apart, the Negative Zone and a beam of blue light shooting up into the air. There was also a lengthy Collider interview with Trank and Simon Kinberg where they talked about how this version of the story honors Ff history from Kirby to The Ultimate Universe iteration in the comics. »

Project Almanac review – unpredictably entertaining teen time-travel yarn

28 January 2015 10:21 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

A group of high-school kids find a prototype time machine in their basement, and use it to tweak events gone by. What could possibly go wrong?

In Hollywood, there’s the myth of the elevator pitch. A writer or producer corners a studio exec in a lift and wallops him with an idea so succinct and so perfect they’ve inked a deal before the doors reopen. I bet Project Almanac sold before they passed the mezzanine. “Well, Mr Paramount Pictures, my idea is: Chronicle meets a time machine. Yes, I’ll take a cheque.”

Chronicle, if your memory of recent teen-centric sci-fi fare is rusty, was a 2012 “found footage” movie about three kids who develop superhero powers. It had some added twists, such as good special effects, better-than-expected performances from then-lesser knowns like Dane DeHaan and Michael B Jordan, and the slow realisation it was a supervillain’s origin story. »

Fantastic Four – Why the Reboot Will Work

28 January 2015 9:41 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

The movie everyone already hates finally had its trailer released yesterday, and I have to say I am enjoying what I am seeing. First, I should state that I am actually looking forward to this reboot. I know many have had issues with casting choices, potential script elements, and updates to characters—but I see a lot of those outcries as knee jerk overreactions. I understand that as fans we take ownership of the properties we enjoy. We take issue when people come in and start changing things from what we already know. It does not help when the people behind those changes are Fox who nearly destroyed the X-Men movie franchise with X-Men 3: The Last Stand and Wolverine: Origins. Not to mention the last time they made a Fantastic Four movie they took one of Marvel’s all-time greatest cosmic characters and made him into a giant cloud. »

Director Josh Trank & Writer Simon Kinberg Give You an Inside Look at the 'Fantastic Four' Trailer

Fantastic Four: what we know about the reboot

27 January 2015 1:41 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We've now had our first glimpse at Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four. Here’s everything we know about 2015’s most mysterious blockbuster.

We’ve known about the Fantastic Four reboot for quite some time, but that hasn’t stopped it being a mysterious project which, until this week, we knew next to nothing about.

We knew that the cast, director and groundwork of the original 2005 film, and its 2007 sequel Rise Of The Silver Surfer, had been firmly thrown out in favour of a new visual look, some reimagining of the source material and an altogether more modern take on the Marvel comics property. Beyond that, many facets of the film remained a mystery. 

Yet the reveal of the new trailer finally gave us a few more specifics. And here's what we know so far...

Even these basic facts are a little complicated. While the question »

Fantastic Four — Josh Trank & Simon Kinberg Talk Influence

27 January 2015 1:29 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Michael B. Jordan (Johnny Storm) and Writer/Producer Simon Kinberg

Today, the teaser trailer for Fantastic Four was released and director Josh Trank (Chronicle) and writer/producer Simon Kinberg (X-Men: Days of Future Past) broke down that teaser trailer. Late last night, Collider released a lengthy interview with the filmmakers and a couple of set photos.

Lots of things in the interview are summed up in a quicker way in the teaser trailer break down. I've pulled three quotes that expand on the creative team's thinking, influences, and marketing tack, so check those out below.

Director Josh Trank

Trank on the film's early negative buzz and why they waited until now to release something.

"I think a lot of that stuff is stemming from the fact that we’ve consciously decided to not release anything official. This isn’t like The Avengers. Even when the first Avengers came out, there »

'Fantastic Four' Trailer Is Here: The Thing! Johnny Storm! The Negative Zone!

27 January 2015 12:30 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

The first teaser trailer for the Fantastic Four reboot has arrived! The superhero movie stars Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell as the titular quartet and is directed by Josh Trank (Chronicle). Yesterday Trank and screenwriter Simon Kinberg broke their long silence about the movie, revealing a few unexpected details to Collider. The most surprising of the bunch? Trank's biggest influence on the way he made Fantastic Four wasn't a comic line or another brand of superhero movie, it was the dense, difficult sci-fi of director David Cronenberg. "I would say that the science fiction of it is a big thing that sets it apart from most of the other superhero genre films. I’m a huge David Cronenberg fan, and I always viewed Fantastic...

10 Big Questions From The Fantastic Four Trailer

27 January 2015 12:24 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

20th Century Fox

Even when the cast was announced for the new Fantastic Four movie, everyone was probably too distracted by those awful memories of intergalactic methane cloud monsters and elasticated dance offs to take it all seriously, particularly as nobody seems able to get Spider-Man right at the minute (and he’s a far more bankable property). But the Fantastic Four deserves to be made: in the grand scheme of things, the super team is pretty much the Marvel Royal Family, and their mistreatment on screen is nothing short of a travesty.

Forget the Avengers, and every other team brought together to fight mounting evil, the Fantastic Four are the first family of the superhero world, and it’s about time someone stepped up to the plate to take the source, and its enduring popularity seriously. Clearly, that manifesto was a big part of how Chronicle director Josh Trank approached his adaptation, »

Finally! A “Fantastic Four” Teaser Trailer!

27 January 2015 8:47 AM, PST | SmellsLikeScreenSpirit | See recent SmellsLikeScreenSpirit news »

After months of radio silence from 20th Century Fox, we finally have our first glimpse at Josh Trank's The Fantastic Four. The footage is... interesting. They don't show a ton of the Fantastic Four in action, so we're left with a glimpse into the story and the tone they're trying to set. From the looks of it, this one looks pretty dour and super serious. This definitely isn't Tim Story's The Fantastic Four movies (thank god!) from a few years back. This looks more like Nolan's Interstellar than typical caped crusader fare. As I've said before, it's easy to get pretty bored with superhero movies, so I hope this one is as good as the footage promises. I was a huge fan of Josh Trank's Chronicle and I like all the actors they've assembled for this. Beyond all else, it's good to finally have some footage to watch. »

Fantastic Four — Teaser Trailer Break Down by Director Josh Trank & Writer Simon Kinberg

27 January 2015 8:47 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

The teaser trailer for Fantastic Four was released very early this morning and if you haven't seen it you can watch it here. Trailers really are a film in its best form and I'm honestly impressed by what I've seen so far. This does not feel like a superhero movie but a science fiction movie, which makes sense when approaching how the powers of the team are attained.

Josh Trank, who directed Chronicle, and Simon Kinberg, who wrote X-Men: Days of Future Past, have a strong filmography. But over the course of production, deviation from the source material has brought out a lot of hate from geeks.

Trank and Kinberg sat down with Yahoo to break down the newly released trailer. The way they are approaching the movie plus the tone and quality of what I see in the trailer have me completely sold.

'Fantastic Four' Prepare for Future in New Trailer

27 January 2015 8:09 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

The Fantastic Four will stretch, sneak, blaze and clobber their way back into movie theaters this summer, and now the latest iteration of Marvel's first band of genetically modified misfits have a properly epic trailer to mark the occasion.

The clip features a grave monologue ostensibly delivered by Dr. Franklin Storm (played by Reg E. Cathey), who waxes on humankind's insatiable need to discover, invent and build. As he speaks, we get our first look at the superheroes-to-be — Miles Teller as Reed Richards/Mister Fantastic, Kate Mara as Sue Storm/Invisible Woman, »

Fantastic Four: dissecting the first trailer

27 January 2015 8:04 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

What did we learn from the first trailer for Josh Trank's Fantastic Four reboot? We've been taking a look...

After months of dogged secrecy, apparently hesitant studio bosses and allegedly extensive reshoots (although that's something that's been firmly denied), the first teaser trailer for the Fantastic Four reboot has finally hit screens. But what does it tell us about the film?

We've been breaking it down, and here's what we found...

Ultimate Four

It was already fairly obvious from the casting choices, but this version of the Fantastic Four has a lot in common with their Ultimate-universe counterparts, who were pitched considerably younger than the traditional version. Pipe-smoking, white-templed Reed Richards is replaced by pimply undergrad Reed Richards, and like follows like with the other characters.

Interestingly, the footage suggests that the senior Dr. Franklin Storm – Sue and Johnny's father – might be part of the project that gets the Four into space, »
