First, the good news: 2015 was a fantastic year at the movies. There were great original stories, sequels done right, adaptations that match their source material and more. But for every great movie, there’s a ton of bad ones too. Here’s our picks for the best and worst science fiction and fantasy films of 2015.
The new Fantastic Four movie is unquestionably a box office bomb, which critics have savaged with scathing reviews such as “More like the Unfantastic Four!” For those of you who want to avoid sitting through it, I have taken the liberty of chronicling the movie’s major moments… as best as I can recall them happening.
Like how we’re gonna skip Fantastic Four this weekend.
Superhero movies have tried hard to leave behind some of their Silver Age comic-book trappings in the past decade. We’ve seen darker, grimmer versions of Superman and other heroes—but the new Fantastic Four reboot goes beyond darkness, into actual self-loathing. It’s kind of bizarre.
The only time you get to see mutant powers in action is on TV or in a movie courtesy of special effects. But to promote the new Fantastic Four movie, Marvel turned a flying drone into a real-life Human Torch that streaked across the sky while completely engulfed in flames.
This Friday, Ant-Man comes out in theaters—and by our reckoning, it’s the 106th live-action superhero movie to see theatrical release. How will it measure up to that proud tradition? To help you place it in superhero history, here’s our ranking of all 105 superhero films to date.
Because it’s full of the Human Torch, see? Yeah, you get it. There’s not a ton of new footage here, but it does contain the first we’ve heard of Doom and the Thing talking and oh my god are they really not modulating Jamie Bell’s voice at all? It’s so weird to see and Thing and hear a teenager.
Once again, Comic-Con was a massive Thunderdome in which entertainment properties entered...and only some of them left. Studios and creators battled to create buzz for their projects, and some triumphed. Here are the biggest winners and losers of Comic-Con 2015.
Marvel Studios may not be at San Diego Comic-Con in 2015, but their characters sure are. Deadpool, Fantastic Four and the X-Men are all expected to be part of a massive panel being put on my 20th Century Fox in Hall H and we will be liveblogging it as it happens. Follow along with us.
Franklin Richards, the son of the Fantastic four’s Reed Richards and Sue Storm, isn’t just a young hero-in-training, but one of the most powerful characters in the Marvel universe. And chief among those powers is being completely insane, as these facts will prove.
The biggest movie explosion of the year is almost upon us. This year’s summer movies include superheroes, post-apocalyptic warriors, dinosaur bikers, and some strange and wonderful fantasies. Here are 28 movies to watch out for this summer.
Iron Man may have changed the game for Marvel movies, but Marvel already had a long history of movie-making before the creation of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Here's part two of our look back at the history of Marvel comic book movies, as we head into the 90's and come right up to 2008.
It’s tough to be a superhero. Not only do you have to drop everything and get into a brawl at a second’s notice, but you’re frequently misunderstood. Superheroes’ personal lives are a mess — especially their sex lives. But it gets worse. Here are 10 superheroes who are physically unable to have sex. Ever.
I'm not sure that this first trailer for Josh Trank's Fantastic Four reboot is fantastic, exactly, but it's certainly intriguing. It seems like it's trying to completely hide the fact it's a superhero movie, revealing practically nothing about the heroes, their powers, or the evil blogger they'll be facing.
The internet was busy this week ripping it out of the news that the Fantastic Four reboot will feature a radical reinvention of Doctor Doom. But it was Toby Kebbell's other comments that bothered me: Why is he bandying about buzzwords like 'Lo-fi' and 'Ultra-Real' like they're good things for Comic book movies?
You'd think a Doctor Doom figure wouldn't be hard to get wrong - armour, mask, slap a cape on, done - but it's still remarkable when a Toy company manages to get Latveria's finest not just right, but pretty much perfect like 3A have.
New York. Gotham. Metropolis. We've all been there, either in real life or in our dreams. And these gorgeous travel posters from Justin Van Genderen invite us there again, with an elegant beauty that makes me want to believe.
