Josh Trank Teases An "Epic, Multipower" Battle Between The Fantastic Four And 'Doctor Doom'

19 hours ago | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Between rumours of problems behind the scenes and the fact that the majority of fans would be much happier seeing the Fantastic Four back at Marvel Studios, the upcoming reboot has a lot stacked against it. While the footage in the trailers has certainly impressed, it's clearly taking a lot of liberties with the source material. However, in a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Josh Trank promised that fans will see an epic battle between Reed Richards (Miles Teller), Sue Storm (Kate Mara), Johnny Storm (Michael B. Jordan), Ben Grimm (Jamie Bell), and Victor Domashev (Toby Kebbell). "Chronicle was all about the discovery and evolution of those powers," the director explains to the site. "This is like, ‘What if it’s a couple years later and it sucks?’ The audience should expect an epic, massive, huge, multipower slugfest. This movie is big. A lot of stakes."   Hopefully that battle won't »

20 hours ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

It.s been hard to get a grip on The Fantastic Four over the last few months. Its been dogged by rumors and hearsay surrounding Josh Trank and its troubled production.

By the sound of things, the Fantastic quartet.s battle with Doctor Doom is going to be insane.  Don.t just take my word for it though. This declaration has come from none-other than The Fantastic Four.s director himself, Josh Trank. The 31-year-old filmmaker, who got his shot at the blockbuster after his sterling work on 2012.s low-budget Chronicle, spoke to Entertainment Weekly about what we can expect when Mister Fantastic, Human Torch, Invisible Woman, and The Thing go up against Doctor Doom.

For better or worse, the Tales From the Darkside TV series reboot isn't moving forward at The CW, but Syfy is still working on bringing new horror anthology goods to the small screen with Channel Zero, a new project from Max Landis and Nick Antosca.

Coined as Channel Zero: Candle Cove, season one of Syfy's in-the-works horror anthology series will be based on a seriously unsettling 2009 creepypasta.com short story titled "Candle Cove."

Antosca, who is also penning the new Friday the 13th movie, is set to write the Channel Zero series with Landis slated to produce and overlook the creative efforts of the show along with Antosca. We have the official press release with full details below, and if you haven't read the "Candle Cove" story (written in faux forum posts style), you can read it by visiting:

Max Landis And Nick Antosca Ready To Scare With Channel Zero

30 June 2015 10:36 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Chronicle writer Max Landis already has one big horror project on the way, with Victor Frankenstein, based on his script, landing later this year. He’s now teaming up with Hannibal TV writer Nick Antosca for Channel Zero, described as a new scary anthology show. The series will be based at the Us SyFy channel and aims to model itself roughly on American Horror Story by telling one narrative across each season. But unlike Ryan Murphy’s series, Channel Zero – in its first season at least – will be based on an existing story, in this case Kris Straub’s Candle Cove. It spins a yarn about a mysterious 1980s children’s TV series, the show’s role in a string of murders and one man’s dark secret.Straub’s story originated online as part of the communal creepypasta project, where users share tales and generally try to terrify the »

American Ultra: Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg Get Bloody in New Images, Posters

25 June 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

In addition to Steve’s on-set interview with stars Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg, Lionsgate has provided us with a trio of new images and two trippy posters from the action-comedy American Ultra to share with our readers today. Written by Chronicle scribe Max Landis and directed by Nima Nourizadeh (Project X), the film revolves around a stoner (Eisenberg) and his girlfriend (Stewart) who find their lives disrupted when a government operation descends upon their small town with the aim of wiping the stoner out, who is in fact a sleeper agent. The excellent first trailer and these new images certainly play up the fact that Eisenberg and Stewart’s characters get very bruised and bloodied over the course of the film, and indeed we saw in the trailer that the actors weren’t afraid to get their hands dirty. Additionally, the posters play up the film's stoner vibe. Check »

American Ultra Set Visit Interview: Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart

25 June 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

When director Nima Nourizadeh’s (Project X) action-comedy American Ultra was filming in New Orleans in May last year, I got to visit the set with a few other reporters. Written by Chronicle scribe Max Landis, the story finds a stoner/sleeper agent (Jesse Eisenberg) and his girlfriend’s (Kristen Stewart) life are disrupted when a government operation descends upon their small town with the aim of wiping the stoner out. This is the first time Eisenberg and Stewart have worked together since Greg Mottola’s underrated coming-of-age drama, Adventureland. American Ultra also stars Walton Goggins, Connie Britton, Bill Pullman, Topher Grace and Tony Hale. While on set I got to watch some filming and talk to most of the cast and filmmakers. In the coming weeks I’ll have a lot more on the cool-looking film, but for now I wanted to share the on set interview with Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart. »

Is Kristen Stewart funny?

25 June 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg are a couple in love -- and possibly death. I'm on the set of "American Ultra," the Max Landis-scripted, Nima Nourizadeh-directed comedic action film that stars Stewart and Eisenberg as Phoebe and Mike, a slacker couple being pursued by heavily-armed contract killers. The reason? Mike is in fact a highly-trained government agent (with amnesia!) who's been marked as a "liability" and targeted for assassination. We get to see some of the action go down on the film's New Orleans set, a warehouse that's been partially converted into a small-town grocery store. When we arrive they're in the midst of shooting a fight scene that sees Mike engaging in brutal, bloody battle with a number of enemies through aisles labeled "Fresh Produce," "Electronics," "Chips" and "Cleaning Products." In one corner of the warehouse, a giant green screen has been set up that in post »

24 June 2015 11:50 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

It was back in 2009 that Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart first joined forces on the big screen, playing male and female leads in Greg Mottola.s period, coming-of-age tale Adventureland. After a number of years apart, now the two actors are coming back together, but instead of playing two young people falling in love against the backdrop of a low-rent amusement park, this time around they.re dodging bullets and kicking all kinds of ass in director Nima Nourizadeh.s American Ultra. Based on an original screenplay by Max Landis (Chronicle), American Ultra tells the story of Mike Howell (Eisenberg) . a stoner convenience store clerk who finds his happiness in the love he shares with his girlfriend, Phoebe (Stewart).

20th Century Fox's X-men & Fantastic Four Movie Franchises Rumored to Crossover in 2018

23 June 2015 | The Daily BLAM! | See recent The Daily BLAM! news »

According to a new report, positive reception of director Josh Trank's (Chronicle) Fantastic Four reboot will lead to a shared cinematic universe with Fox's X-Men franchise. Latino-Review.com states that "[the studio's] current plan is to have 2018’s [yet to be announced] comic book movie be a crossover film that features the X-Men and the Fantastic Four." Though this rumor is not new, fans have been speculating this was the studio's plan ever since announcing a complete overhaul of their Fantastic Four film series, it reinforces writer/producer Simon Kinberg's stated interest to the idea late last year when production began on the new Ff. Latino-Review.com goes on to say that the crossover concept is dependent on the financial success of both Fantastic Four and the next X-Men movie, »

16 June 2015 1:41 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In April 2013, Disney Chairman Alan Horn made the dreams of millions come true when he announced a range of new plans for the iconic and beloved Star Wars film franchise. Beginning with a new trilogy of core sequels – headed up by Star Wars: The Force Awakens – the studio confirmed that there would also be several standalone, spinoff movies, giving a broader view of Star Wars action.

Max Landis Talks Me Him Her, American Ultra, Future Projects, Hollywood, and More

14 June 2015 12:20 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Last week Max Landis’ directorial debut Me Him Her premiered at the Seattle International Film Festival. Shortly before heading to Seattle, I sat down with the very busy screenwriter for an extended video interview. During the wide-ranging conversation, Landis and I talked about so many things it would be impossible to summarize it in an intro. Suffice it to say, if you’re curious about what it really takes to make a movie, this interview is definitely worth your time as he reveals a lot of the real inner workings of Hollywood. If you’re not familiar with Max Landis, he’s written a number of projects over the past few years (like Chronicle) and he’s got a lot getting released soon like American Ultra, Victor Frankenstein, and Mr. Right. And this doesn’t count all the projects he’s working on that are still under wraps. However, while »
