Director Josh Trank discusses The Fantastic Four reboot, Michael B. Jordan’s casting as Johnny Storm and paying homage to the comic books

3 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This morning we brought you four new images from 20th Century Fox’s upcoming reboot The Fantastic Four [check them out here], and now Cbm has posted some quotes from director Josh Trank in the latest issue of Empire Magazine, where he offers up his thoughts on the difference between the new film and the studio’s first two Ff movies.

“The original two films to me are very similar to a lot of recent movies that have come out, in terms of that kind of cartoonish. It’s just not something that me and Simon are interested in as storytellers. There’s the opportunity to make something that is challenging and tragic and dramatic. The opportunity is right there in the material. We’d rather steer it in that direction as opposed to just embracing a tone that comes right off the page.”

Trank went on to discuss Michael B. Jordan’s casting »

Michael B. Jordan is ‘Adonis Johnson’ in full synopsis for ‘Creed’, ‘Rocky’ spinoff

4 hours ago | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Forget the Alien sequel; the real exciting ’70s spinoff movie is Creed, which is not about the second worst rock band of all time but is yet another chapter in the Rocky franchise. Following his Sundance darling Fruitvale Station, director Ryan Coogler and that film’s star Michael B. Jordan’s Creed is about the son (grandson?) of boxing champion Apollo Creed and his determination to jump back into the ring.

Badass Digest obtained a full synopsis for the film, in which Jordan assumes the much-cooler-than-Johnny-Storm-name “Adonis Johnson”.

Adonis Johnson (Jordan) never knew his famous father, world heavyweight champion Apollo Creed, who died before he was born.  Still, there’s no denying that boxing is in his blood, so Adonis heads to Philadelphia, the site of Apollo Creed’s legendary match with a tough upstart named Rocky Balboa.

Reuniting Michael B. Jordan with his Fruitvale Station director Ryan Coogler, Creed takes the story of the long-running Rocky film franchise in a new direction. Synopsis via Badass Digest: Adonis Johnson (Jordan) never knew his famous father, world heavyweight champion Apollo Creed, who died before he was born. Still, there’s no denying that boxing is in his blood, so Adonis heads to Philadelphia, the site of Apollo Creed’s legendary match with a tough upstart named Rocky Balboa. Once in the City of Brotherly Love, Adonis tracks Rocky (Stallone) down and asks him to be his trainer. Despite his insistence that he is out of the fight game for good, Rocky sees in Adonis the strength and determination he had known in Apollo—the fierce rival who became his closest friend.

Official Plot Synopsis For Creed Spoils Less Than One Single Tweet From Sylvester Stallone

14 hours ago | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Production is underway on Ryan Coogler’s Creed, a spin-off from the Rocky series that focuses on Adonis Creed, grandson of Apollo. We can expect to see it in our cinemas by year’s end, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see it pick up some acting nominations, maybe even wins, during the next awards season.

A new, official plot synopsis has now been published, revealing the broad strokes.

Adonis Johnson never knew his famous father, world heavyweight champion Apollo Creed, who died before he was born. Still, there’s no denying that boxing is in his blood, so Adonis heads to Philadelphia, the site of Apollo Creed’s legendary match with a tough upstart named Rocky Balboa.

Plot Synopsis For Creed Hints At A New Adversary For Rocky

25 February 2015 3:03 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Fruitvale Station director Ryan Coogler is rebooting the Rocky franchise with this year’s Creed. Starring his Fruitvale lead Michael Jordan, Coogler’s film will pay homage to the original series while striking out on its own. This time around, Sylvester Stallone’s boxer appears in a supporting role with Jordan nabbing the spotlight as Apollo Creed’s son, Adonis.

In terms of story, we know that Adonis will seek out his father’s greatest opponent, Rocky, to help train him in the sport that runs through his veins. Aside from a few casting announcements, that’s been it so far. Now, thanks to a lengthy synopsis unearthed by Badass Digest (via /Film), it seems that Balboa himself could be in for another battle of his own:

Official Synopsis For Rocky Spin Off Creed

25 February 2015 2:27 PM, PST | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

The Rocky franchise is alive and well, with the next entry, Creed, coming our way in November, and now we have a good idea of what the story of Adonis Creed (Michael B. Jordan), the son of heavyweight champion Apollo Creed, will entail, and how Sylvester Stallone's Italian Stallion figures into it with the release of the official synopsis: From Warner Bros. Pictures and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures comes award-winning filmmaker Ryan Coogler’s “Creed.”  The film explores a new chapter in the “Rocky” story and stars Academy Award nominee Sylvester Stallone in his iconic role.  The film also reunites Coogler with his “Fruitvale Station” star Michael B. Jordan as the son of Apollo Creed. Adonis Johnson (Jordan) never knew his famous father, world heavyweight champion Apollo Creed, who died before he was born.  Still, there’s no denying that boxing is in his blood, so Adonis heads to Philadelphia, the »

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. »

Last month we finally got our first look at 20th Century Fox and director Josh Trank’s upcoming Marvel reboot The Fantastic Four as the trailer made its way online [watch it here], and now we have the first very brief TV spot for the film.

First Look At Rocky Balboa In Creed

21 February 2015 2:04 AM, PST | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Creed is one of the movies of 2015 that I'm most excited about. I'm a sucker for the Rocky franchise, and thought it was tied up nicely in the last movie. When I heard that Stallone was reprising his role as everyone's favourite underdog, my initial reaction was that it was terrible idea, but the more I found out about Creed, the more I respected the direction it was heading. Creed sees Rocky reluctantly agree to train Adonis Creed, the grandson of his late friend Apollo. Adonis will be played by Michael B Jordan, fresh after wrapping on the reboot of Fantastic Four, and will be directed by Ryan Coogler who worked with Jordan on the excellent Fruitvale Station. Now, we have our first look at the pair thanks to some behind-the-scenes pics from ComingSoon.net, and Stallone is starting to look more like Paulie than a retired prizefighter! Creed hits »

Sylvester Stallone Returns as 'Rocky' in 'Creed' Photos

18 February 2015 3:46 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just a few weeks after Warner Bros. gave a November 25 release date for their Rocky spinoff Creed, new photos have emerged from the Philadelphia set, featuring Sylvester Stallone reprising his role as Rocky Balboa, and Michael B. Jordan as the grandson of Apollo Creed. The story follows Creed as he tries to start a boxing career, with Balboa reluctantly coming aboard to serve as his new trainer. Tessa Thompson also stars as the female lead, although no specific details were given about her character.

The plot is also said to delve into the Rocky franchise mythology, although we don't know much more about the story. Real-life boxer Andre Ward will play Creed's nemesis Pretty Ricky Porter, with another boxer, Tony Bellew, also starring in an unspecified role. It isn't known how much shooting remains on the project, with the release just nine months away.

Oscar week got off to a swinging start at Tuesday night’s Young Hollywood celebration hosted by Vanity Fair and Fiat.

2015 Sundance Trading Card Series: #44. Rachel Morrison (Dope)

6 February 2015 10:00 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Eric Lavallee: Name me three of your favorite “2014 discoveries” …

Rachel Morrison: Polish film “Ida” (brilliant 4:3 B&W cinematography). Positano, Italy (off season) Must do: Hike of the Gods. iphone App “Cinescope” Shameless plug as I developed it. An affordable way to shoot stills and video in any aspect ratio on your phone.

Lavallee: Much in the same spirit as Fruitvale Station (aka Fruitvale), Dope appears to carry/exude/tap into a youthful energy/spirit. In terms of visually describing the players, comparatively, how would these two youth portraits differ?

Morrison: They could hardly be more different. Fruitvale is a harrowingly sad portrait of a life lost too soon (and based on true story of Oscar Grant). Dope is a light, fictional tale of life in the bottoms. There is a lot of movemnet in both films, but Fruitvale was all handheld whereas Dope was predominantly Dolly, Slider, Sticks, »

Rocky Spinoff Creed Set For Thanksgiving As Point Break Remake Shifts To Christmas

4 February 2015 8:21 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Because Hollywood never met a dead franchise it couldn’t resuscitate, this year will see the arrival of a new Rocky spinoff, titled Creed. Warner Bros. just announced that it has set the pic for the already-crowded Thanksgiving weekend, where it will duke it out with Pixar’s The Good Dinosaur, Ridley Scott’s sci-fi The Martian, Mud director Jeff Nichols’ sci-fi Midnight Special, and an untitled Christmas comedy from 50/50 collaborators Seth Rogen and Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

Michael B. Jordan (The Fantastic Four) stars as the grandson of Apollo Creed, that fearsome fighter with whom Sylvester Stallone’s beloved Rocky did battle in the original series. Stallone will co-star alongside Dear White People breakout Tessa Thompson, but the most exciting aspect of this otherwise dubious proposition is that it will reteam Jordan with his Fruitvale Station director Ryan Coogler (pictured above). Based on the merits of their last partnership, this may »
