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 »

Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens December 18 of this year. The first Star Wars standalone film opens December 16, 2016. After that, we have a good idea of what the next few years have in store for Star Wars but nothing is 100% set in stone. For example, though every single outlet in the world has confirmed Rian Johnson is directing Star Wars Episode VIII, along with the filmmaker himself, the company has yet to acknowledge it. And though we’ve heard there will be a Star Wars movie every single year, only the two dates above are confirmed.
However, the long-term future of Star Wars was recently mentioned by Disney CEO Bob Iger. In a Disney shareholders report, he talked about seeing footage from The Force Awakens, confirmed the release years for the next two films in “this” trilogy, and failed to mention the second standalone film. There’s more, too. Read the extremely loaded Star Wars sequel trilogy quote below. Read More »

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 »

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 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 Reed, Christophe 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. Read more about the Ant-Man and Fantastic Four composers below. Read More »

We’ve seen a full Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer already and some bits and pieces from Ant-Man, but next to nothing from 2015’s other big superhero movie, Josh Trank‘s Fantastic Four. Really, the closest thing we’ve gotten to a teaser for the latter is a Punisher comic book that kills off a bunch of Fantastic Four cast member lookalikes.
However, we do know little more about the story now, thanks to a new plot summary that’s been making the rounds. And as has been rumored, it diverges quite a bit from the team’s classic origin story. Hit the jump to get the official Fantastic Four movie synopsis.
