Fantastic Four Screengrab 4

David Cronenberg isn’t a name you’d typically associate with big-budget Marvel adaptations, but Josh Trank made the connection when speaking about his upcoming Fantastic Four. Trank cited the filmmaker as a major influence on his film, specifically referencing Scanners and The Fly.

So how does the idiosyncratic Cronenberg feel about his style getting chewed up by a big studio production? Read the David Cronenberg Fantastic Four quotes after the jump.  Read More »

Fantastic Four Screengrab 4

Though Tuesday’s teaser was the first we’d seen of Fox’s Fantastic Four, we (and the rest of the Internet) couldn’t help but notice it felt awfully familiar. The somber voiceover contemplating human nature and man’s place in the universe, the shots of all-American cornfields and high-tech labs, the furrowed brows of serious scientists doing serious science… it all felt straight out of Christopher Nolan‘s Interstellar.

And indeed, a new Fantastic Four Interstellar trailer mashup making the rounds shows that the two films might not be very different at all. Give or take a Dylan Thomas poem, the Fantastic Four teaser may as well be another Interstellar promo. Watch the video after the jump.  Read More »

Fantastic Four reshoots

Of the three major superhero films opening this summer, Fox’s Fantastic Four is the most mysterious. We’ve yet to see a still or poster, let alone a full-fledged trailer. Happily, that starts to change today with the first official behind the scenes look at the movie.

Michael B. Jordan, Miles Teller, Kate Mara, and Jamie Bell lead the superhero pic, which is directed by Josh Trank. Simon Kinberg and Jeremy Slater wrote the screenplay. Get your Fantastic Four behind the scenes peek after the jump. Read More »

Fantastic Four reshoots

Over the last week we’ve started to hear a lot about The Fantastic Four, with the biggest news being that the film is going in for reshoots in Louisiana. That data, combined with the fact that we have yet to see any official images or footage from the film, will probably create some more questions about precisely what’s up with the film.

Update: Producer/co-writer Simon Kinberg says the reshoots will actually only go for a few days, and says the first teaser will be in theaters with Kingsman.

Ant-Man

Ant-Man and Fantastic Four open within three weeks of each other this summer so their post-production schedules are pretty much on the same track. We just got an Ant-Man trailer, and should get a Fantastic Four trailer during the Super Bowl if rumors turn out true. Plus, behind the scenes, each film just officially announced a key member of the creative team: the composer.

On Fantastic Four, which is directed by Josh Trank, they’ve hired Marco Beltrami. He’s no stranger to the superhero genre having scored The Wolverine, Hellboy and Blade II. Recently, he did the score for Snowpiercer but is probably best known for his work on the Scream movies.

For Ant-Man, directed by Peyton ReedChristophe Beck will provide the score. He too has worked in the superhero genre before, with Red and R.I.P.D, but has also worked with Reed before on Bring it On and recently did Edge of Tomorrow and Frozen.
