New Images From 'Fantastic Four,' Josh Trank Says It's Like A "Dark Amblin Movie"

26 February 2015 6:24 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

"You can't please all people sometimes," Miles Teller told MTV about mixed buzz surrounding "Fantastic Four." "When you shoot a movie, especially when it's with this movie and Josh Trank (he has a very specific tone whether it is 'Chronicle' or ['Fantastic Four')  but as an actor you don't really know what kind of movie it is until you see them cut it together. Now's the first time we saw any footage, and I was excited, and I know for the most part it seems like the consensus is good."  Okay, so it's not exactly a glowing endorsement, but perhaps a reminder that the movie is still months away, folks should probably chill out a bit. At any rate, a few new stills have arrived courtesy of Empire, and one word being tossed around in regards to tone is an interesting one: Amblin. Of course, that's Steven Spielberg »

Exclusive: Four New Fantastic Four Stills Arrive

25 February 2015 4:02 PM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Chronicle director Josh Trank has made a Fantastic Four movie - but not one like the Chris Evans 'n' Jessica Alba version you may remember. This one has Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell in it, for starters, and what's more, it's distinctly less "cartoonish", to quote the director himself. For proof, here are some stills from the upcoming film, straight from the new issue of Empire, on shelves today.A key difference in this superhero reboot lies in the origins of the characters' powers. In the original Stan Lee/Jack Kirby iteration of the Fantastic Four, the team gains their powers by travelling into space, where they’re bombarded with DNA-altering cosmic rays. But Trank’s film draws more heavily on the Ultimate Fantastic Four, which abandoned space flight in favour of inter-dimensional travel.Speaking to Empire for the new issue, Trank explains that the »

Miles Teller Says Fantastic Four Trailer Took Him By Surprise

25 February 2015 8:20 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In the days leading up to the debut of the first trailer, there was a lot of mixed emotion swirling around Fox’s rebooted Fantastic Four. The company’s new take on Marvel’s First Family had garnered its fair share of detractors due to the fact that we didn’t know an awful lot the production, or in which direction Josh Trank would take the IP.

But, low and behold, our first look at Trank’s vision of Fantastic Four served up a surprising slice of superhero action rooted in science fiction, and according to MTV, we weren’t the only ones to harbour a sense of amazement when the screen went black. Over the weekend, the outlet spoke to Whiplash star Miles Teller about his own reaction to the footage.

Miles Teller talks The Fantastic Four trailer, “it’s the first time we saw any footage”

25 February 2015 4:07 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Josh Trank’s The Fantastic Four has an uphill struggle on its hand as it tries to win over the comic book fans who hated the film before a single frame was shot. The trailer went some way to help, but it still has its doubters.

One of those people who isn’t doubting the movie is its star Miles Teller, who is playing Reed Richards in the movie.

“You can’t please all people sometimes,” Teller told MTV. “When you shoot a movie, especially when it’s with this movie and Josh Trank – he has a very specific tone whether it is Chronicle or [Fantastic Four], but as an actor you don’t really know what kind of movie it is until you see them cut it together. Now’s the first time we saw any footage, and I was excited, and I know for the most part it seems like that the consensus is good. »

Miles Teller Surprised By The Fantastic Four Trailer

24 February 2015 7:58 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

During the 87th annual Academy Awards ceremony over the weekend, MTV News spoke briefly with Miles Teller about how the well-received Fantastic Four trailer reversed the initial negative buzz surrounding the Fox/Marvel reboot. "You can't please all people sometimes," said Teller. "When you shoot a movie, especially when it's with this movie and Josh Trank - he has a very specific tone whether it is Chronicle or [Fantastic Four], but as an actor you don't really know what kind of movie it is until you see them cut it together. Now's the first time we saw any footage, and I was excited, and I know for the most part it seems like that the consensus is good." After revealing that he's heard rumblings of additional filming for The Fantastic Four involving the third act and the Negative Zone, the MTV News reporter had then asked Miles Teller if he's done with »

Second Opinion – Project Almanac (2015)

21 February 2015 9:31 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Project Almanac, 2015

Directed by Dean Israelite

Starring  Jonny Weston, Sofia Black-d’Elia, Sam LernerAllen Evangelista, Virginia Gardner and Amy Landecker

Synopsis:

A found-footage teen-flick, whereby our college-applying scientists find a clock-rewinding contraption in the basement…

Creating a time travel movie that doesn’t have any leaky gaps in its plot is a very tricky thing to pull off. Similarly creating a found-footage movie that doesn’t feel contrived or forced is also very difficult to get right. Combine the two together and Dean Israelite really had a hard task on his hands to make this found footage time travel movie make sense while never feeling too gimmicky. And to his credit, he mostly succeeds. But some sloppy writing choices and half baked ideas really hold back Project Almanac from what could have been a great sci-fi movie.

Firstly, you need to have your time travel rules written down so »

Shaft to be rebooted by The Man from Uncle producer

20 February 2015 7:21 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The Shaft franchise is to be rebooted by New Line Cinema.

The studio has acquired the rights to the detective series and brought producer John Davis on board, TheWrap reports.

Davis has previously worked Chronicle as well as reboots for Predators and the upcoming The Man from Uncle.

Shaft began as a novel, before being made into a film trilogy and spin-off television series starring Richard Roundtree as John Shaft.

The franchise was resurrected in 2000 in a movie starring Samuel L Jackson, who played Shaft's nephew.

A comic book series based on the original character's early years launched last year and was announced this week as a finalist for the first Dwayne McDuffie Award.

'Shaft' Reboot in Development at New Line with the Producer of 'Predator'

18 February 2015 5:58 PM, PST | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

And it's not even April Fools' day... But yes, the black private dick that's a sex machine to all the chicks will be making a comeback, at a theater near you, courtesy of New Line Cinema. According to The Wrap, a Shaft reboot is indeed in development at New Line, with veteran producer John Davis (the "Predator" franchise, "Chronicle," and "I, Robot") on-board to shepherd the project. It's still early in the process, so no casting announcements yet; nor who will write and direct this new reboot. Recall that, in 2000, Samuel L. Jackson starred in a reboot of the franchise, as the nephew of the original John Shaft, from the initial 1970s movies that starred »

Project Almanac Review

16 February 2015 8:32 AM, PST | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

The found footage genre has come a long way since The Blair Witch Project proved it was a viable gimmick to feed to the cinema going public, with, in recent years, super hero movies and teen comedies getting in on the action. Now, it's the turn of the time travel movie to the found footage with Project Almanac (which went through a few name changes from Cinema One, to Almanac, to Welcome to Yesterday), which follows a group of friends who find a working time machine, and, being teenagers, use it for personal gain, from winning the lottery to going backstage at a music festival. But, wouldn't you know it, their tampering with the time line has unforeseen consequences. From the off, you can clearly see that director Dean Israelite is trying to pull off exactly what Josh Trank did with Chronicle, with Project Almanac having a structure and tone »

8 Actors Who Can Be The Next Spider-Man

12 February 2015 3:00 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

We’re not even a year removed from The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and already Sony and Marvel are exploring new options on who could be the next webslinger. And we already have some insight that the next Spider-Man is going back to high school, and Dylan O’Brien (The Maze Runner) and Logan Lerman (Fury) are on Sony’s short list.

That said, whoever they cast will make an exciting addition to Captain America: Civil War, and we have some thoughts whether or not Sony decides to go the way of yet another reboot.

Donald Glover

Perhaps better known by his fans as either Troy Barnes, from his four and a (almost) half season role on the hit show Community, or as rapper Childish Gambino, Donald Glover is a definite contender for the role of Marvel’s Spider-Man. With the inception of Miles Morales, following the death of Peter Parker in the Ultimate comic series, »

Fantastic Four: 10 Moments From The Comics It Will Feature

12 February 2015 2:29 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Marvel Comics

For a very long time, Chronicle director Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four reboot was a mystery. Starring Miles Teller (Mr. Fantastic), Kate Mara (The Invisible Woman), Michael B. Jordan (The Human Torch), and Jamie Bell (The Thing) with a script from X-Men: Days Of Future Past writer Simon Kinberg, there was really no reason to doubt its potential.

That wasn’t how comic book fans felt though, and despite there not being a single official image from the movie online, it was written off as being a terrible movie. This opinion probably wasn’t helped by the vague and strange sounding details that the reboot’s cast kept dropping in interviews, and 20th Century Fox’s decision to keep the movie under wraps appeared to be backfiring on them. That changed when the trailer dropped.

The first look at the reboot blew fans away; it just looked so much better than expected. »

Felicity Jones to Play Lead Role in ‘Star Wars’ Spinoff Movie

3 February 2015 11:04 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Disney and Lucasfilm have tapped Oscar-nominated actress Felicity Jones to star in the “Star Wars” standalone movie from director Gareth Edwards.

Jones was one of several actresses to have met for the role along with Rooney Mara and Tatiana Maslany.

Edwards (“Godzilla”) is directing the 3D feature with Chris Weitz penning the script. Weitz replaced Gary Whitta, who wrote the first version of the screenplay.

Plot details of the “Star Wars” spinoff are unknown.

It opens nationwide Dec. 16, 2016.

Jones’ standalone movie is one of two known “Star Wars” spinoffs in the works at Lucasfilm and Disney. “Chronicle” director Josh Trank is developing a separate standalone pic.

It’s unclear how both films will play into the seventh chapter “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” which opens Dec. 18 of this year. Speculation has the films focusing on the early days of original characters Princess Leia and Han Solo.

Trailer Trashin': Marvel’s First Family is Back in Fantastic Four

2 February 2015 9:04 PM, PST | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

I hope that you all enjoyed the Super Bowl dear readers! For all you football fans, whether you supported the Patriots or the Seahawks, I hope you enjoyed the game. Personally, I’m just wait to see all the movie spots that are shown during the game. In the meantime, this week’s belated installment of Trailer Trashin’ is our third Marvel Comics adaptation in a row, with the first trailer for the upcoming August release Fantastic Four.

Premise: After four people – Reed Richards (Miles Teller), Susan Storm (Kate Mara), Johnny Storm (Michael B. Jordan), and Ben Grimm (Jamie Bell) – are teleported to an alternate universe, which alters their physical forms and grants them superhuman abilities, they must learn to harness their new powers and work together as a team to save the Earth from a former friend turned enemy.

My take: For quite a while now, there’s been »

Watch: 'Fantastic Four' Teaser Trailer Mashed Up with 'Interstellar'

31 January 2015 11:14 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Last week, we were surprised by the arrival of the teaser trailer for Fantastic Four, the comic book franchise reboot from Chronicle director Josh Trank. Many people pointed out the similarities in the style and tone of the teaser trailer with that of Christopher Nolan's Interstellar. And since this is the internet, someone decided to take some of the voiceover from Matthew McConaughey from the trailers for Interstellar, and use them over footage from Fantastic Four. It's actually a pretty damn great edit that works better than the real teaser trailer for the comic book movie and makes it feel much more powerful. Watch! Here's the Fantastic Four trailer mashed up with Interstellar from GunsAndJR (via Live for Films): You can still watch the real teaser trailer for Fantastic Four right here. Fantastic Four is directed by Josh Trank (Chronicle) and written by Simon Kinberg (X-Men: Days of Future Past »

Comics on Film: What 'The Fly' and 'The Fantastic Four' Have in Common

30 January 2015 7:00 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

At long last and on bated breath, this week 20th Century Fox finally gave audiences their first look at Fantastic Four, the franchise reboot directed by Chronicle's Josh Trank. Many people, including comic book fans, seem to agree that while the film doesn't look like it'll be the most faithful comic book adaptation out there, it still looks extremely interesting. One thing in particular stood out in an interview Trank conducted with Collider. When asked what would make his superhero film different in a market that seems to be crowded with them, Trank answered very honestly, and in a way that many likely didn't expect. He said, "...I always viewed Fantastic Four and the kind of weirdness that happens to these characters and how...
