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.

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.

Marvel Comics is having a little fun at the expense of the cast and crew of the new Fantastic Four movie. In the new issue of the current Punisher series, #12, there are frames of three Hollywood actors discussing a new movie by a director with the last name “Trang.” They look incredibly similar to Miles Teller, Jamie Bell and Kate Mara. Apparently their friend Michael, who plays a character named Johnny, is running late. And then their building explodes.
Yes, Marvel Comics has killed the cast of Josh Trank‘s Fantastic Four movie. Check out the panels below. Read More »

Fantastic Four fans, hold on to yourselves. We’ve known the new film, directed by Josh Trank (Chronicle) will have some radically different concepts going on than we’re used to seeing in the classic Fantastic Four comics. But now Toby Kebbell, who plays the film’s version of Doctor Doom, has revealed a few things about his character. And they’re far more different than you’d probably been guessing so far. Read More »
2015 is so packed with big movies, getting any one to stand out is important. Films like Avengers: Age of Ultron, Jurassic World and Terminator Genisys have all released information and a photo or two to whet the fan appetites. Even Star Wars Episode VII put out very cryptic videos teasing returning vehicles and characters. The one film that has yet to release any images, and has so far avoided all conventions and other public appearances, is Josh Trank‘s Fantastic Four. It’s currently the most mysterious blockbuster of 2015.
The lack of early promotion has been quite a point of contention online. Some love being in the dark about a movie. It’s a breath of fresh air in today’s mainstream film culture. For others, the lack of awareness is worrisome. More than almost any of the other films mentioned, Fantastic Four has been under a microscope and some kind of information for fans would help to drive the conversation and alleviate worries.
As fans continue to debate the timing of Fantastic Four images or footage, it will eventually happen. We’ll get a reveal of the suits, a poster, some images, then eventually a trailer and more leading up to the film’s release on August 7, 2015.
The film’s producer and writer, Simon Kinberg, is aware of this debate and in a new interview explained why there’s been a hesitance to reveal anything from the film too early. Read his Fantastic Four reboot quotes below. Read More »
With Josh Trank kind of busy for the next several years, his adaptation of the Sony game Shadow of the Colossus needed a new director. Sony has found one in Andy Muschietti, the director of Mama, who had recently been attached to The Mummy reboot. (Among other things.)
Russ described the game as follows back when the film first went into development: “[It] features a young male protagonist who is told that his dead love can be revived if only he kills a collection of giant beasts that reside across the countryside. He does so without question, and the player is left to eventually wonder if the kid is being played. Visually austere yet stunning, the game was a critical hit and has endured as one of the masterpieces of the PlayStation 2 generation.” Read more about the Shadow of the Colossus movie below.
