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 »
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 »

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 »

Also starring are Reg E. Cathey as Johnny and Sue’s dad Franklin Storm, Toby Kebbell as the villainous Doctor Doom, and Tim Blake Nelson as Harvey Elder (a.k.a. the future Mole Man). Josh Trank directed. Watch the Fantastic Four final trailer after the jump. Read More »
Creed marks a new chapter in the long Rocky storyline, and the film is both a sequel and, in a way, a reboot. Rocky is still around, still played by Sylvester Stallone. But this time, he’s in the corner as a trainer for a young fighter, and that fighter is the son of his old foe Apollo Creed. Michael B. Jordan plays Adonis Creed, a promising slugger who will also be the true star of the new film.
Update: Just after we ran a brief bit of footage from the film, the first Creed trailer arrived. You can check it out below. 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 »
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).
