20th Century Fox has released the first official teaser trailer for their reboot film being directed by Josh Trank and based on Marvel’s renowned group of superheroes, the Fantastic Four.

An origin story said to be inspired largely by the “Ultimate Fantastic Four” comics (the first arc of which was written by Brian Michael Bendis and Mark Millar with Joe Kubert illustrating), Fantastic Four offers a contemporary re-imagining of Marvel’s original and longest-running superhero team. The story centers on four young outsiders who teleport to an alternate and dangerous universe, which alters their physical form in shocking ways. Their lives irrevocably upended, the team must learn to harness their daunting new abilities and work together to save Earth from a former friend turned enemy.

“Marvel’s First Family” will include Whiplash‘s Miles Teller as Reed Richards (Mr. Fantastic), “House of Cards” star Kate Mara as Sue Storm (The Invisible Woman), Fruitvale Station and Chronicle‘s Michael B. Jordan as Johnny Storm (The Human Torch) and The Adventures of Tintin‘s Jamie Bell as Ben Grimm (The Thing). Dawn of the Planet of the Apes‘ Toby Kebbell will also star as Doctor Doom alongside Reg E. Cathey (“The Wire”) as as Dr. Franklin Storm and Tim Blake Nelson (O Brother, Where Art Thou?) as Harvey Elder, aka The Mole Man.

Directed by Josh Trank (Chronicle), Fantastic Four features a screenplay by Simon Chinaberry (X-Men: Days of Future Past) and is set to hit the big screen August 7, 2015

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice – Cinematic History in the Making

1

Recently, you may have seen some fascinating teaser trailers and short films about the highly-anticipated Hollywood hit ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’. Featuring two of the most renowned and iconic comic book characters of all time, this film represents the culmination of their journey from the page to the silver screen.

According to star Henry Cavill, who will play the role of Superman in the film, the picture is set to represent ‘a visual spectacle and cinematic history. This assertion is difficult to contest, especially when you consider the role of these characters in popular culture and their enduring appeal across a vast and diverse audience.

A Brief History: From Obscure Comic Book Stars to Global Icons

While cinematic history may be in the making with this movie, it is unlikely to represent the final chapter in either of the character’s Hollywood narrative. Instead, it is far more likely to launch a brand new franchise, hot on the heels of the widely acclaimed ‘Dark Knight’ series. There is certainly a considerable level of demand for this film, and the 2016 release is expected to generate millions at the Box Office. It will also underline just how far both characters have come since their inception and debut on the big screen.

It is almost 25 years since the original Batman film was released, for example, after finally being adapted from the iconic DC comic and subsequent TV programs. Starring Michael Keaton in the lead role and Jack Nicholson as the incredibly sinister Joker, the film was a huge success and laid the foundations for Batman’s transition to the silver screen. Although the film may seem dated in comparison with the special effects and cinematography of the new movie, many of Batman’s core character traits and relationships have remained unchanged.

Now and the Future

Despite this, the two characters have undoubtedly come a long way since their comic book and Hollywood debuts. They have also become part of a wider, globally recognizable brand, and one which has made Batman and Superman even more popular over the course of the last two decades.

One of the best examples can be found on the online slots by Royal Vegas Australia, which prominently feature themed games surrounding characters such as Batman and Superman. Batman slots are particularly popular at present, and the release of the upcoming 2016 movie is likely to elevate this fervor to an entirely new level.

From Characters To Colors: The Story of Star Wars Celebration 2015’s Official Poster And It’s Rebels Variant By Craig Drake

Star Wars posters are an art form unto themselves. For an artist to capture the essence of Star Wars on a poster — the feel and look of the films, the drama of the stories, Han Solo’s overall awesomeness — isn’t easy. To do it while filtering Star Wars through their own lens is even harder. But Craig Drake‘s stunning new Star Wars Celebration poster, the official key art for April’s mega-event, appears effortless.

There’s a simple reason for this: Drake loves and knows Star Wars, having worked at Lucasfilm for seven years as the senior designer of StarWars.com, and he has that rare ability to convey what we love about a galaxy far, far away in an immediate, almost subconscious way. In his poster, there are classic Star Wars elements: the overwhelming power of Darth Vader, dark and light colors in a sort of harmonious conflict, and a sense of Star Wars-branded danger and excitement. The style, however, is all Drake’s: the lines are sharp, the details simple, the colors bold. Ultimately, the image is unmistakably his own, but successfully adapts his style into the language of a movie poster. So how did he do it?
