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 »

Superheroes always end up getting misunderstood, feared and taken to task by the government for the potential threat they pose to humanity. Superman has to go to court in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, The Avengers seem to be sidelined a bit in Captain America: Civil War, and now we know the Fantastic Four get locked away for a little bit.
A new TV spot for Josh Trank‘s comic book reboot has just surfaced online with some new footage from the film bringing Marvel’s first family back to the big screen. There’s a new shot of Dr. Doom, and a couple quick shots of the Fantastic Four displaying their new powers. Watch the new Fantastic Four TV spot after the jump! Read More »

Paramount Pictures has released the first trailer for the thriller Captive. Based on true events, the film has Kate Mara as Ashley Smith, a struggling mother and recovering drug addict whose bad day takes a turn for the much, much worse when she’s taken hostage by accused rapist Brian Nichols (played by David Oyelowo).
But the real star here is Rick Warren‘s Christian self-help book The Purpose Driven Life. Ashley initially rejects the book, but comes to find great value in it. Especially once it becomes a way for her to convince Brian to let her go. Watch the Captive trailer after the jump. Read More »
It seems like just yesterday the narrative around Fantastic Four was how bad the marketing was. Mainly, that’s because it was non-existent for so long. Since the release of the first trailer though, that’s been rapidly and happily changing. As effects shots get completed and more and more is revealed, you can feel everyone getting cautiously optimistic about what Josh Trank has done here. It’s going to take some people actually seeing the movie to finally make everyone super excited but, until then, the tables are turning.
Case in point, a brand new TV spot that debuted during the NBA Finals. It’s a lot of the same footage we’ve already seen, but there’s new stuff and – most importantly – there’s humor in here. Below, check out the new Fantastic Four TV spot. Read More »

Just last month, the first images from Ridley Scott‘s sci-fi drama The Martian surfaced, showing off Matt Damon stranded on Mars. We’re not sure when the first trailer will pop up, but now we have another glimpse at the film as two more photos have surfaced, one with our first look at The Newsroom star Jeff Daniels in the film as well.

Even though director Josh Trank is no longer on board the second Star Wars Anthology film, which is reportedly about Boba Fett, we’re still hoping for the best when it comes to his reboot of Fantastic Four at 20th Century Fox. So far the trailers have painted a pretty serious picture for the comic book property that isn’t exactly known for being dark and gritty, so this will likely be very different from the previous big screen iteration of the super powered quartet.
Now a new international trailer has surfaced that’s almost identical to the previous domestic trailer we saw, but there are some bits of new footage of our heroes showing off their powers (which we also saw shown off in a new commercial).

So far, the trailers for Josh Trank‘s Fantastic Four have shown us brief glimpses of the characters’ powers. We haven’t really gotten a chance, however, to visually study each ability. We now have a pretty decent chance to do that in a very odd place. Movietickets.com has released a commercial featuring the Fantastic Four and, for twenty seconds, it’s probably the best look yet we’ve seen from the movie…until it becomes an app commercial. But for 20 seconds, you get a really great look at what Josh Trank has in store for us on August 7. Check it out below. Read More »
