Fantastic Four
I tend to skip reading reviews for films that I’m going to see, but I couldn’t help myself with “Fantastic Four.” I read both of the negative reviews from Hollywood Reporter and Variety. I also read on HitFix how Miles Teller, the star of the film, was expecting it to tank on Rotten Tomatoes.

"Fantastic Four" Debuts on Rotten Tomatoes with 12%

Fantastic Four
Apparently, no one told the critics that there’s a review embargo on “Fantastic Four” until it opens this Friday. On Rotten Tomatoes, over twenty critics have ignored the embargo so far. And the early word is terrible. At 12% -- and it’s still early -- it’s even worse than the poorly received originals.

As fans patiently wait for something, anything official about Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four, we start to focus on other things. Like the new origin of Doctor Doom. Or the fact Marvel Comics cancelled all Fantastic Four comics and has been generally touchy with the characters for the last few years. The prevailing thought was that Marvel Comics canceled the FF comics on purpose to spite the people who were making the film. That they didn’t want to help promote the film at all for 20th Century Fox, which will be releasing the new movie and handles the rights.

Miles Teller was at a press conference today for his new movie Whiplash, the Sundance, Cannes, TIFF and New York Film Festival hit. In the film, Teller plays a jazz drummer who endures physical and emotional trauma for his art. The film’s theme reminded him of an injury he sustained practicing his art, playing Reed Richards in the upcoming Fantastic Four reboot. “When I was filming The Fantastic Four, I took a big chunk out of my finger,” Teller said.

'Fantastic Four' Reboot Gets Bumped

6:06 PM 9/18/2014 by Jeff Giles
The August release schedule has its moments here and there, but generally speaking, that month is an annual cinematic graveyard -- not necessarily the place where you want to stake your claim to a superhero franchise, in other words. That's what Fox apparently intends to do with Fantastic Four, however:

Josh Trank Replaced As Director Of Sony's SHADOW OF THE COLOSSUS Sony Pictures have turned to Andrés Muschietti (Mama) to direct the highly anticipated big screen adaptation of Shadow of the Colossus. No reason has been given for Trank's departure from the project, but you have to imagine that it has something to do with him helming one of Disney and Lucasfilm's Star Wars spin-off movies (and possibly even a sequel to The Fantastic Four).

How Much Will the 'Fantastic Four' Reboot Deviate from the Comics?

Fantastic Four
Director Josh Trank has more or less earned our trust, but there's really no getting around the fact that the Fantastic Four film franchise has been mostly underwhelming thus far -- something owing at least as much to the inherent squareness of the comics as it has to the overall miscasting and periodically inept filmmaking that marred the first two films.
