Latest film reviews and releases
It’s been ten years since the last ‘Fantastic Four’ film and its slapdash, unfunny sequel. Perfect timing then for a franchise reboot of the Marvel comic books. And it looks like this time around more attention is being paid. The director is Josh Trank, the 31-year-old boy wonder behind found-footage blockbuster ‘Chronicle’, which gives us hope for fleshed-out characters and convincing special effects. 'Whiplash' actor Miles Teller plays Reed Richards/Mr Fantastic, while ‘Sherlock Holmes’ and ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ writer Simon Kinberg is in charge of the script. We can probably count Josh Trank out of the sequel though. He’s already signed up to direct a ‘Star Wars’ spin-off set for release in 2018.
