Fantastic Four Reboot Teaser Debuts

The Four are back and fun-time's over. By Brandon Wolfe The first teaser for the hotly unanticipated reboot of Fantastic Four has debuted. The tone at play here is dark and deadly serious, a stark contrast to the bright-colored and comical tone of the Tim Story film from a decade ago. While that is an understandable course-correction, given how loathed that film is, this tonal shift also runs counter to the playful tone of the comic itself, taking the Nolanesque “dark and gritty” approach that studios still seem to gravitate toward even as Marvel continually proves that audiences are OK with fun in their superhero adventures nowadays. At any rate, there’s not much to see here just yet, other than a declaration that this isn’t your slightly older brother’s Fantastic Four. Fantastic Four (Take 2) opens August 7 and is directed by Chronicle ’s Josh Trank. CLICK HERE TO VIEW THE FANTASTIC (?) TEASER Discuss this story with fellow SJF fans on Facebook . On Twitter, fol

Flash Gordon Film On It's Way

" Star Trek 3 " scribes J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay will work off a treatment by George Nolfi to write the script. Twentieth Century Fox has closed a deal to pick up the screen rights to the pulp comic strip hero in a package that has John Davis producing and J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay, the up-and-coming scribes who just worked on Star Trek 3, on board to write the script. The deal is a long time coming for Davis, who spent more than a year nailing down the rights from the Hearst Corporation. The veteran producer, whose credits include Chronicle and the upcoming Man from U.N.C.L.E . among dozens of others, used his discretionary fund to get the rights. He also hired George Nolfi, who wrote Bourne Ultimatum , to pen a treatment and brought in Payne and McKay. Gordon is the hero first created in 1934 by iconic artist Alex Raymond who, along with the lovely Dale Arden and mad scientist Hans Zasrkov, ends up on the planet Mongo fighting its tyrannical ruler, Ming the

Josh Trank To Direct The Red Star

Warner Bros has set Josh Trank to develop to direct The Red Star , an adaptation of a graphic novel that will be scripted by Jason Rothenberg. Neal Moritz will produce through his Original Film shingle. Trank made his feature directing debut on Chronicle and after the $12 million film grossed $116 million and was that rare low budget, no star genre film to receive strong reviews, Trank has been up for much bigger jobs. Among those conversations is the Fantastic Four reboot at Fox and the Spider-Man spinoff Venom at Sony Pictures. But The Red Star is the first one that has led to a deal for a film that has a writer working on the project. The Soviet-themed sci-fi fantasy comic book series was picked up by Warner Bros after Universal let it go. Created by Christian Gossett, the comic is set in an alternate USSR where futuristic technology co-mingles with magical elements. The protagonist is a Red Fleet soldier who goes up against an ex-leader who rules with an iron fist. Rothenbe

Chronicle Wins Super Bowl Box Office

Given that this past weekend hosted the annual sportsgasm known as the Super Bowl, the usual trend is for lower box office results. So the teams behind super powered found footage thriller Chronicle and horror chiller The Woman In Black should be feeling extra pleased this morning, as both films performed beyond expectations. Chronicle managed to sneak out a win, taking the top spot with $22 million, but the Daniel Radcliffe ghost story did almost as well, earning $21 million for second place. CHRONICLE Movie Review- Liam Neeson and his hungry pack of wolves held off other competition, so that The Grey only dropped one place to third, earning $9.5 million. That meant heart-warming family tale Big Miracle had to make do with fourth place, opening with a slightly disappointing $8.5 million. Underworld: Awakening rounded out the top five with $5.6 million. THE WOMAN IN BLACK Movie Review- Katherine Heigl’s latest, One For The Money , appears to be hitting a fast descent, s
