Whoa! New 'Punisher' Comic Kills Cast of the 'Fantastic Four' Reboot

26 November 2014 2:07 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Earlier in the fall, we reported on the tension between 20th Century Fox and Marvel escalating to the point that the comic book company was ending their run of Fantastic Four comics in an effort to dilute interest in the forthcoming feature film reboot from Chronicle director Josh Trank. Indeed, the comic book has been ended for the time being, but there's no indication that this was done with malicious intent. However, you might raise an eyebrow when you see some frames from Punisher #12, the latest issue written by Nathan Edmondson and drawn by Mitchell Gerads. What unfolds is funny, but pretty messed up. Here's the frames in question from Marvel Comics Punisher #12 (via Comic Book Movie): Did you pick up on that? The name "Trang" is clearly a reference to Josh Trank, director of the forthcoming reboot of Fantastic Four, and the three people seen on the page certainly resemble Miles Teller, »

New trailer for time travel movie Project Almanac

18 November 2014 10:58 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Project Almanac follows a bunch of teens as they put a time machine together. Here's the new trailer and poster...

Arriving in cinemas next February is Project Almanac, a new time travel movie that has a flavour of Josh Trank's excellent Chronicle to it. Directed by Dean Israelite, the film follows a bunch of teenagers, who discover plans to build a time machine. As such, they build one, with the idea of correcting their past mistakes. As purveyors of time travel movies will well know however, things don't tend to work out like that.

The film, previously known as Welcome To Yesterday, stars Jonny Weston, Sofia Black D'Elia and Amy Landecker. And a brand new trailer and poster for it have just landed.

So let's do them in order. Here's the poster first...

And then here's the new trailer for Project Almanac.

Is this the plot for Josh Trank’s The Fantastic Four?

18 November 2014 10:33 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The mysterious Fantastic Four is still shrouded in mystery with no production photos, no trailers and not even official synopsis released ahead of its release next August. But, it seems there is a possible leak in 20th Century Fox and the plot is finally arrived on 4Chan (via Cbm)

Or is it?

“Reed is a genius convenience store clerk with Ben. Reed’s parents don’t care about him, and Ben’s dad is abusive. They’re good friends and have each other’s backs. Reed writes a paper for community college on teleportation that attracts the attention of Dr. Franklin Storm, CEO of the Baxter Building research center.

Storm has a son, Johnny, and an adoptive daughter, Sue, whose father, Storm’s old partner, died in an experiment gone wrong. Johnny and Sue are party kids, and Sue is particularly disdainful of science. Reed and Sue don’t get along at first. »

Is Director A.J. Edwards Making a Mace Windu 'Star Wars' Spin-Off?

18 November 2014 7:55 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

As of now, there are already two Star Wars spin-off films lined up after Star Wars: The Force Awakens arrives next December. Godzilla director Gareth Edwards is already signed to direct the first one, arriving just one year after Episode VII, and Lucasfilm has already lined up Chronicle director Josh Trank to be at the helm of whatever spin-off will follow Episode VIII from Looper director Rian Johnson. However, is there a chance that another spin-off is in the works? The Better Angels director A.J. Edwards partook in a Reddit Ama and was asked about potential involvement in the revival of the Star Wars franchise. Read on! Now we're pretty sure that Edwards was just joking around (sarcasm is hard to detect in text, especially online), but the director responded, "Talking about it, not able to say a lot yet. It will focus on Mace Windu." Aside from the »

Mace Windu Getting His Own Star Wars Movie!?

18 November 2014 7:18 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Lucasfilm is currently developing a few highly anticipated Star Wars projects. Outside of J.J. AbramsStar Wars: The Force Awakens, Rian Johnson is developing Episodes VIII and IX, and directors Josh Trank (Chronicle) and Gareth Edwards (Godzilla) each working on standalone films that have yet to be revealed. Lucasfilm also has a third standalone film in the works, but as of right now no director has been hired to develop it yet. 

We’ve heard rumors and speculation of Yoda, Han Solo, and Boba Fett possibly getting their own movies. But now it looks like we can add Samuel L. Jackson’s Mace Windu to the list. Now before you brush this off as just a rumor, it comes from a very interesting source.

Director A.J. Edwards recently did a Reddit Ama to promote his upcoming young Abraham Lincoln film The Better Angels. This is the only movie that he has directed, »

The Star Wars Mace Windu Spinoff Might Actually Happen, Get The Details

17 November 2014 7:06 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Of the six Star Wars movies currently in the works at Disney and Lucasfilm, five have already found their directors. The saga movies are being taken care of by J.J. Abrams and Rian Johnson, with the former making Star Wars: The Force Awakens (a.k.a. Star Wars: Episode VII) and the latter making Episodes VIII and IX, and both Chronicle's Josh Trank and Godzilla's Gareth Edwards have been hired to make two of the three in-the-works "spin-off" movies. So who is directing the remaining feature? New evidence suggests that the gig could belong to up-and-coming filnmaker A.J. Edwards, and it's possible that we may already know what it will be about. In promotion of his new movie, The Better Angels, A.J. Edwards recently did an Ama session on Reddit, and when asked by a fan about his potential involvement with the future of the Star Wars »

Doctor Doom Has A New Backstory For The Fantastic Four Reboot

11 November 2014 1:40 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Amid the ceremony surrounding DC and Marvel’s upcoming cinematic slates, it’s easy to forget about Fox’s comic book efforts. The studio’s focus in recent years has understandably centred around the X-Men franchise, their guaranteed money-maker. But there’s a new kid on the Fox block and we can’t wait to hear more about it. From Chronicle helmer Josh Trank, their rebooted version of The Fantastic Four is reportedly… well, we don’t know. There’s been very little verified information on the film, bar from a few tidbit comments from the producers and actors.

The reason for all the secrecy stems from the fact that this iteration of the superhero quartet will be vastly different from what’s come before. We know they’ve switched races of characters and apparently are gearing up to wow audiences with a host of other changes that no fan will expect. »

New Doctor Doom Is An Online Troll

11 November 2014 7:33 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Whilst the various other superhero films of the next two years have had many of their key elements spoiled, Josh Trank's reboot of the "Fantastic Four" franchise is still being kept top secret with no official publicity still or trailer having yet hit the Net.

The cast is under strict instructions not to talk about it, as is the crew, which makes any small bit of info on the movie a big thing. During promotional rounds for the "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" Blu-ray and DVD this week, actor Toby Kebbell dropped a few crumbs of information and the online reaction has been swift (and not pleasant).

Kebbell plays the famed villain Doctor Doom in the film and, speaking with Collider, Kebbell confirmed that his character is drastically changed from the comics:

What on Earth is going on with the Fantastic Four reboot?

11 November 2014 7:26 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

In the wake of the Doctor Doom news, we look at what we know about the Fantastic Four reboot so far...

This article contains mild spoilers for 2015's Fantastic Four movie.

Over the past day or so, news surfaced about Doctor Doom, the villain in the forthcoming Fantastic Four reboot. Actor Toby Kebbell, who plays him, revealed that his Doom would be very different from the one in the Marvel comics; the character is, he said, an “anti-social programmer” and blogger whose internet handle happens to be - you’ve guessed it - Doom.

Needless to say, this latest sliver of news hasn’t gone down especially well in some quarters, and comments sections on websites all over the world are full of jokes like “Fantastic 4Chan”. For Fox, this seems to be the latest in a string of poorly-received news stories, and all from a project which - on »

Toby Kebbell Says Dr. Doom Is An "Anti-Social Programmer" In Josh Trank's 'Fantastic Four'

11 November 2014 6:21 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

So, is this Josh Trank's ultimate revenge on the blogosphere? In the run up to "Fantastic Four," the "Chronicle" director has occasionally popped up on Twitter to quash rumors about his still-secretive take on the superhero quartet. But has he channeled that frustration with fanboy blogs into shaping his villain? Well, someone will have to ask him, but either way, it would appear one of Doctor Doom's superpowers is leaving scathing comments on messageboards. Collider recently chatted with Toby Kebbell Aka the new Doctor Doom, and the actor revealed that the character is not quite how you remember him. "He’s Victor Domashev, not Victor Von Doom in our story. And I’m sure I’ll be sent to jail for telling you that," Kebbell said. "The Doom in ours — I’m a programmer. Very anti-social programmer. And on blogging sites I’m 'Doom,' " he continued. This is »

Tony Kebbell calls new Doctor Doom a “very anti-social programmer”, reveals he is not Victor Von Doom

10 November 2014 11:18 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The new Fantastic Four reboot has been clouded in mystery. Very few details have leaked and there seems to be a lot of curiosity around this new, younger skewing version of the team. Changes from director Josh Trank should surprise no one. Michael B. Jordan’s casting as Johnny Storm a.k.a. The Human Torch set off a maelstrom of debate, and now we have some details around the new Doctor Doom courtesy of the man himself, Toby Kebbell (via Collider)

“He’s Victor Domashev, not Victor Von Doom in our story,” states Kebbell. “And I’m sure I’ll be sent to jail for telling you that. The Doom in ours—I’m a programmer. Very anti-social programmer. And on blogging sites I’m ‘Doom'”.

So instead of the master scientist, dark arts dabbling, Lord of Latveria, we’re getting Doctor 4Chan? The more I hear about the new Fantastic Four, »

Doctor Doom in Josh Trank's new Fantastic Four film will be a little different than you may expect...

Fox's reboot of the Fantastic Four movies, which is being helmed by Chronicle director Josh Trank, arrives in cinemas next August, with a cast that includes Kate Mara, Michael B Jordan, Jamie Bell, Ben Grimm and Miles Teller.

And then there's Toby Kebbell, who was part of a big hit Fox movie this year with Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes.

42 upcoming comic book movies - and when to expect them

5 November 2014 9:30 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

When’s that comic book movie coming out, with the ant-sized man? This and all similar questions answered in our comic book movie calendar.

Comic book fans of the world - were you planning on spending your spare cash on anything other than cinema visits and DVD box-sets for the next six years? Well tough, because Hollywood has other ideas.

Ever since Bryan Singer’s X-Men movie jump-started the comic book movie trend in 2000 (building on the stellar work of Richard Donner and Tim Burton in the decades prior), Fox, Sony, Warner Bros., Disney and Marvel Studios have all been repeatedly cashing-in on the resurgent popularity of capes, cowls and anything ending in ‘Man’.

Now, the sheer size of the comic book movie-making world has reached a critical mass. There are now seven such films (at least) slated for every year between 2016 and 2019. There’s also a few confirmed for 2020 already, »

Daniel Radcliffe Talks 'Victor Frankenstein' Story and Monster

28 October 2014 10:18 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When 20th Century Fox released the official synopsis for Victor Frankenstein back in June, it became clear that this was not your typical Frankenstein movie, since it is told from the perspective of Igor (Daniel Radcliffe), the troubled assistant to the title character (James McAvoy). While promoting Horns, Daniel Radcliffe offered new details about director Paul McGuigan's film, which he describes as a "fun adventure movie" and offers new details about Victor and Igor's relationship.

"I think our Frankenstein is a really kind of rip-roaring, fun adventure movie version of Frankenstein. I would really struggle to class it as horror. I think there are horror elements to it and nods to previous versions of Frankenstein, but it's much more a film about - the thing that I hope will make it stand out is the relationship between James' character and I. Victor and Igor are two people who come »

Daniel Radcliffe Calls Victor Frankenstein A “Rip-Roaring, Fun Adventure Movie;” Will Not Create Monster Until Film’s End

28 October 2014 7:41 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

While Daniel Radcliffe continues to shed his Harry Potter stardom this month by starring in the grisly horror comedy Horns, the actor has already turned his attention to another upcoming project, in which he takes on one of his most against-type roles to date. In 20th Century Fox’s Victor Frankenstein, Radcliffe will put a new spin on the hunchbacked Igor, assistant and friend to the brilliant and destructive medical student Victor von Frankenstein (James McAvoy).

That a household name like Radcliffe is taking on the part of Igor, traditionally a supporting player in adaptations of Mary Shelley’s horror classic, marks one of many ways in which Victor Frankenstein will set itself apart from the crowd. When asked during an interview for Horns how his Frankenstein would sidestep comparisons to other works, Radcliffe explained that, in addition to there being “a lot of action:”
