Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four has been getting hammered this weekend—at the box office, by critics, and by audiences. The question everyone’s asking is: was the material bad from the get-go? Or did studio interference make this a bomb before it was even filmed?
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.
Director Josh Trank put this tweet up today, implying that Fox is to blame for the response Fantastic Four is getting. He deleted the tweet shortly after posting it.
The official announcement came directly from the Star Wars website: Fantastic Four director Josh Trank, a mysterious no-show at the recent Star Wars Celebration convention, will not direct the second Star Wars Anthology film after all. Here’s the statement that was posted yesterday:
Not much here in the way of new footage, but these micro-clips, which feature on-screen commentary by Fantastic Four writer-producer Simon Kinberg and director Josh Trank, do offer up a few nuggets, like the fact that Miles Teller auditioned for Trank's Chronicle, which ended up starring Michael B. Jordan.
Just how different will the new Fantastic Four movie be from the versions we've seen before? Very different, it seems. Collider has a new interview with director Josh Trank. And this first look at this version of the Fantastic Four's outfits. And, well... it's bluer when you expand it to full-size and look closely?
Chronicle director Josh Trank will be directing one of the stand-alone Star Wars movies, and it won't be the first time he has played with lightsabers on film. In 2007, Trank made this short film about Star Wars-inspired mayhem breaking out at a party.
StarWars.com has just officially announced Josh Trank, director of Chronicle and currently hard at work on Fox's Fantastic Four reboot, has been officially hired to direct one of the stand-alone Star Wars movies.
Fox hasn't always done the best job making use of its Marvel Comics film properties — they appear to have just lost the rights to Daredevil, and their Fantastic Four films aren't considered classics. So it's probably good news that they've hired Mark MIllar, who's done so much to reshape how Marvel's characters are…
Chronicle was one of the freshest movies we've seen this year so far, with its telekinetic teens going off the rails. This superpowered "found footage" movie comes out on DVD today, so we were excited to talk to director Josh Trank.
It's long been rumored that Fox was courting Chronicle director Josh Trank to make a new Fantastic Four movie. And now it's finally confirmed! In an interview with Collider, Fox CEO Tom Rothman confirmed Trank's involvement.
Chronicle director Josh Trank's recent success has tied his name to every potential geek flick in the works. First, there were rumors he would reboot the Fantastic Four, then it was Venom, and now comes another new comic book adaptation right out of left-field.
With the Andrew Garfield Spider-Man reboot coming soon, it's no wonder that Sony is sniffing around for more Spidey-related films to shoot. Rumor has it they still want a big-budgeted Venom flick, and they want Chronicle's Josh Trank to direct it.
Chronicle cost approximately 1/20th as much to make as last year's Green Lantern — and it looks way cooler. This movie about teenagers who get superpowers has some of the coolest depictions of superpowers we've seen in ages. Whether they're flying or tossing shit around, the teenagers in Chronicle always feel like…
We've been caling Chronicle the American Akira. And now you can hear about that influence, straight from the creators of this movie.
Are you curious about the down-to-Earth "found footage" movie about a trio of teens who get superpowers? We caught a sneak peek at some Chronicle footage, hosted by the director, and we liked what we saw. We also got a chance to talk to the film-maker, Josh Trank.
