“Fantastic Four” remake gets 2015 release date

Posted by on

Marvel has the next three years mapped out with its superhero releases, and now other studios are following suit. Fox’s planned “Fantastic Four” remake that will be directed by Josh Trank is now slated to be released in 2015.

ERC Box Office has the news that “Fantastic Four” will come out March 6, 2015. That’s the same year as “The Avengers 2,” “Justice League,” “Star Wars: Episode VII” and “Ant-Man.” Basically, we have to wait three more years for another year as jam-packed with nerd-friendly movies as this one was.

This “Fantastic Four” movie will be a complete reboot from the 2005 Tim Story movie and its sequel. Though those were more silly than they were serious superhero fare, it seems fair to assume that Trank will bring the same levity he had in “Chronicle” to “Fantastic Four.”

Thus far there have been no casting announcements for “Fantastic Four,” but our guess is that they will come soon. The first movie starred Jessica Alba, Chris Evans, Ioan Gruffudd and Michael Chiklis, all of whom were relatively well known at the time. Hopefully this film, now coming out a decade after the original “Fantastic Four” movie, stars some more up-and-coming actors so that it’s not as weighed down by their celebrity and previous works as the 2005 movie was.

In speaking about the decision to have Trank act as director, Fox’s Marvel creative consultant Mark Miller expressed some major excitement. “[Hiring Trank] could just not be more different than the first ‘Fantastic Four’ movie from what I’ve seen so far,” he said. “Even just as a fan, I’m very, very excited by the level of talent they have on the directors side of things.”

Final Countdown

The Best Of The Last

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Cancel it!

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Forgotten America

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Rev Up

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
