There’s been some teases in a trailer, or a look on a poster, but Empire Online posted an exclusive first look at actor Jamie Bell as The Thing in this summer’s Fantastic Four.
The look is rather different from what we’ve seen before in previous live action versions. Check it out directly below.
The design for some reason reminds me of a mix between the horrible version in Roger Corman’s The Thing and Michael Chickliss’ version in two films. Mix those in with some rocks you’d buy at Home Depot to make your walkway look really nice.
What do you think of the design above? How does it compare to the below?
One of the best reviewed films of the year, Snowpiercer, will be out on Blu-Ray and DVD on October 21st. The film, which is directed by Bong Joon Ho, stars Chris Evans, John Hurt, Ed Harris, Kang-ho Song, Tilda Swinton, Jamie Bell, Octavia Spencer, Ewen Bremner, Ah-sung Ko, Alison Pill, Luke Pasqualino and more. It opened in limited release and did open in wider release, but it didn’t manage to get an even wider audience. Now thanks to all the great reviews and word of mouth, it’ll definitely get more watches now that it’s coming out on Blu-Ray and DVD. Did you guys see the film? What did you think of it? It’s one of the best roles Chris Evans has taken on, he was wonderful in this. The whole cast did a great job and it’s directed brilliantly.
Here’s a synopsis of the film:
A failed global-warming experiment kills off most life on the planet. The final survivors board the SNOWPIERCER, a train that travels around the globe via a perpetual-motion engine. When cryptic messages incite the passengers to revolt, the train thrusts full-throttle towards disaster.
You can currently pre-order it on Blu-Ray and DVD on Amazon. Both versions have a 2nd disc filled with special features.
Based on the graphic novels of the same name Snowpiercer is the story of the surviving members of humanity struggle to survive amidst a world covered in ice on a supertrain where the poor and the rich are constantly at odds in the English-language debut of filmmaker Bong Joon-ho. Chris Evans, Jamie Bell, Octavia Spencer, John Hurtand, and Tilda Swinton star.
After much delay, the film should be making its United States debut in limited release June 2014.
After months of speculation, it looks the cast of the rebooted Fantastic Four movie from Fox has been decided…. and it’s interesting. Numerous reputable sites are reporting that Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan andJamie Bell will star in the project that reboots the Marvel superheroes with Josh Trank directing. The movie will hit theaters on June 19, 2015.
Michael B. Jordan is the longest rumored cast member and has been a star on the rise since his breakthrough performance in Fruitville Station, for which he received numerous award consideration. Other notable roles include The Wire, All My Children, Friday Night Lights, Parenthood, and Chronicle. He also voiced Cyborg/Victor Stone for DC’s Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox. He’s currently in theaters for That Awkward Moment. He’ll be flaming on as Johnny Storm/The Human Torch. Chronicle was directed by Josh Trank, who is also directing this reboot.
Miles Teller will be stretching his acting chops as Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic (though IMDB lists it as Reid Richards). He too is currently on screen in That Awkward Moment with Jordan. Notable roles include Footloose, Project X and the upcoming Divergent. He’s also rumored to be playing the real life actor and one half of the Blues Brothers Dan Aykroyd in an untitled John Belushi project.
Kate Mara can currently be seen in House of Cards, but is also known for the television shows Nip/Tuck, Jack & Bobby, 24, Entourage, American Horror Story and TRON: Uprising. Highlight from her movie career includes We Are Marshall, Shooter, 127 Hours and she even had a role in Iron Man 2 as a U.S. Marshal. She’ll be playing Sue Storm/The Invisible Woman.
Jamie Bell plays the rocky Ben Grimm/The Thing. His more notable roles include Billy Elliot, Jumper, Snowpiercer (another graphic novel turned movie) and most notably the voice of Tintin in The Adventures of Tintin and rumored upcoming sequel.
The casting has definitely confused many fans and has so far resulted in a general negative response. The movie will be based more on the Ultimate Fantastic Four series as opposed to Marvel’s 616 Fantastic Four.
