I don’t remember the origin of the Ultimates version of the Fantastic Four being so boring. Whatever their flaws, Tim Story’s two FF movies were not boring.
As the summer blockbuster season comes to a close, GeekScholars Movie News is ready to debut their Rotten Tomatoes and Opening Box Office Predictions for August 2015 including their numbers for:
- Fantastic Four
- Ricki and the Flash
- The Man from U.N.C.L.E.
- Hitman: Agent 47
- American Ultra
After that the hosts play a round of ‘Never Tell Me the Odds!’ where they weigh in on the probably of a second Ghostbusters movie getting off the ground, Rachel McAdams joining Doctor Strange, and Edge of Tomorrow 2 ever happening.
The latest TV Spot for Fantastic Four shows all four members of the group in action – and that lovely shot at what happened to Doom’s face.
Check it out after the jump. Fantastic four premieres on August 7th.
How often does a studio release two trailers for the same movie on the same day? They don’t – it’s a rhetorical question. Except that 20th Century Fox has done just that – follow the jump for two new trailers for Fantastic Four.
Fantastic Four opens on August 7th.
I just don’t know about this movie. There’s nothing about it that’s screaming “love” to me, I’m not digging the tone of the trailers, the dark color pallet or the uniforms, and are people not allowed to smile in this universe? I mean really. Must be grim all the time. I’m trying to remain optimistic and hope for the best. I’m one of the only people on the planet who apparently liked the first two films. Check out these brand new character posters for the movie!
The new trailer for Fantastic Four is now available just beyond the jump.
Lots of new footage including superpowers in use; Doom; interdimensional travel. Check it out – it’s great!
Fantastic Four opens on August 7th.

When Josh Trank was picked to helm the reboot of the Fantastic Four – on the strength of his found footage take on superpowered people, Chronicle – it was seen as a very good move by 20th Century Fox.

Check out the Fantastic Four teaser following the jump.
