Today you’ll be able to see Fantastic Four in theaters everywhere, and while the reviews mostly seem to be negative with few redeeming qualities, it’s always better to see for yourself. However, it’s hard to care about a movie like this when the director goes out of his way to distance himself from the movie.
And that’s exactly what happened last night, on the eve of the release of Fantastic Four as some audiences were emerging from the first screenings. Josh Trank took to Twitter with succinct lamentation of the film that ended up on the big screen, but he deleted it a short time later. But since this is the internet, his words still live on in cyberspace. Read the brief and sad Josh Trank Fantastic Four tweet after the jump! Read More »

Tonight you can start catching screenings of Fantastic Four around the United States before it starts playing all day around the country tomorrow. And 20th Century Fox is still in full marketing mode trying to get you interested.
One of the aspects of the film that has remained mostly unseen is the full form of Toby Kebbell as the Fantastic Four’s nemesis Doctor Doom. The recent extended preview gave us some insight into what happens with the character they the five-person research team travels to another universe, but this is the first time we’ve seen Doom for an extended period of time in action. And sadly, he looks like a radioactive Crash Test Dummy.

This week brings the release of 20th Century Fox’s reboot of the comic book franchise Fantastic Four from director Josh Trank. We haven’t heard much about the quality of the film as far as audiences are concerned, but some of the buzz behind the scenes had people worried and skeptical about the movie actually delivering a satisfying reboot. And now that the critic reviews are starting to come in, it looks like fans have something to worry about. Get the Fantastic Four early buzz after the jump! Read More »
If the recent extended preview for Fantastic Four is any indicator, 20th Century Fox is desperate for you to see and like their reboot of the Marvel comics superhero family. After all, they screwed up the quartet with the first two movies they made, and if this doesn’t work then they might find themselves in an even more desperate situation.
And if you need a reminder as to just how badly Fox mishandled Fantastic Four before this recent reboot, Honest Trailers is here to tear apart not just the first film from 2004, but also Rise of the Silver Surfer from 2007. Watch the Fantastic Four Honest Trailer after the jump! Read More »

Even though the early buzz on Fantastic Four may be good, 20th Century Fox isn’t resting when it comes to pushing the movie on general audiences. A new four-minute sneak preview has just surfaced, which is basically a combination of all the previous trailers with a bit of new footage and longer takes of shots that we’ve seen before.
But there’s a bonus at the end for those who sit through the whole four-minute video (or just fast forward to the last 30 seconds), because Deadpool pops up to let everyone know that they’ll also see a trailer for his movie with Fantastic Four this weekend. But we’ll end up seeing the red band trailer for that tonight, so stay tuned. In the meantime, watch the Fantastic Four extended preview after the jump! Read More »
This weekend brings the release of 20th Century Fox’s latest attempt to bring Fantastic Four to the big screen, and the early buzz on the comic book reboot from director Josh Trank is pretty positive so far. We’ll see if that holds up when more people see the movie this weekend.
In the meantime, it appears the studio is already looking forward to the future by changing up the superpowered quartet by adding a fifth person. Nerdist founder, comedian and Talking Dead host Chris Hardwick recently auditioned for a role in Fantastic Five, and franchise stars Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell were there to oversee his tryout. How did it go? Watch the Chris Hardwick Fantastic Four audition after the jump to find out. Read More »
