Howdy ladies and gents, time for some film news and while today’s news story is a little small, it is very important as it is related to the upcoming Fantastic Four reboot. The following comes from ComicBookMovie:
The fact that we’ve seen nothing from The Fantastic Four means that everyone is thinking the worst of it, with plenty of reports (like the one earlier today) claiming that the reboot is in trouble.Well, the movie’s producer and writer Simon Kinberg has reached out to Latino-Review with the following statement: “To confirm – Fantastic Four will be doing 3-4 days of additional photography with director Josh Trank and some key cast members. We are very excited about the film and can’t wait for you to see what we’ve been up to. And you will be able to do that very soon as I can confirm here that the teaser will be on Kingsman in theaters February 13.”
It’s worth noting of course that Kinberg isn’t going to contact them and admit that the movie is in trouble, but three to four days of additional shooting is a lot different to the weeks of reshoots we heard about earlier, and I don’t think he would tell an outright lie about how extensive they are.
The main thing to focus on here is the fact that we now FINALLY know when the trailer will reach us! With a Super Bowl TV spot likely, it will obviously be early February that we start getting to see more from The Fantastic Four, including a poster and stills hopefully.
All I’m seeing this article is the fact that there’s a date for the trailer of Fantastic Four and I have to say about that is THANK GOD! For the longest time this film has been hidden in secrecy and all we’ve had to go off is the words of the writers, actors, producers and directors. There have been no images or footage of any kind. It is absurd. So after all this talk we finally have a date for the first trailer which will be releases with Kingsman: The Secret Service on February. There is one thing that it makes me wonder though, over in the UK we get Kingsman at the end of the month so does that mean we’ll see the trailer with the film too or is it an American thing only? Also will the trailer be released online the same day or not? I’m sure it will but I need to know. I just want to see what this film looks like, understand the story, the tone, the characters and action as well. Plus I want to see how this footage compares to all the rumours surrounding the rumours about the quality of this film and whether it is Chronicle 2 or not and whether the film has any elements retained from the comics or not. As for the info about reshoots, woo, big whoop. Re-shoots happen all the time these days with films and it it’s not always a bad thing.
So what do you think of this news? Please comment below and let me know your thoughts.
