The writing was on the wall, but even amid downgraded expectations, Fantastic Four managed a spectacular belly-flop over the weekend. Dismal reviews and bad word of mouth—the movie got a C- from CinemaScore—led to a dismal $26.1 million opening weekend Full Story

More like Un-Fantastic Four

Well, Fantastic Four really sh*t the bed this weekend. All the problems plaguing the movie behind the scenes and dogging its disastrous release will be dealt with in a separate post, so that here we can simply focus on the final product, which is just the worst. It’s wrong-headed from the get, a giant f*ck you to both the idea of narrative consistency and the audience for having the temerity to expect a superhero movie—a genre about people with fantastical powers flying around and saving the world—to be any fun at all. Full Story

With the Fantastic Four reboot just over a week away, Michael B. Jordan’s casting as Johnny Storm, traditionally white in the comic books and originally played in movies by Chris Evans, remains controversial. I can’t believe the number of people who have expressed some version of “but how can Michael B. Full Story

And solely because of Michael B. Jordan. The final trailer for the gritty reboot of Fantastic Four is out and it looks like all your least favorite parts of comic book movies—destruction on a massive scale, blue beams of light pointing at the sky, overly serious dialogue, overreliance on CGI, the Very Special Boy trope—mashed into one movie. Full Story

Well done. Michael B Jordan is the male counterpart to Courtney Easton. They’re both in Dolce&Gabbana. And it’s the fabric that sets this apart from just a regular tuxedo. It’s luxurious. It’s old and modern at the same time. It has to be worn with confidence. And this guy…clearly… as we’ve seen on several occasions lately, he has the flash. Full Story

Fantastic Four is all about Michael B. Jordan

Fox’s Fantastic Four reboot is flying under the radar, as far as superhero movies go. This one has the least amount of hype and pre-release attention focused on it, and I can’t help but think that’s a good thing: With expectations low, even a mediocre result will feel like a win. Full Story

Adonis is a GREAT name. I mean it’s a balls out name, for sure. And Duana would say it’s a lot of expectation to give to a baby. But holy sh-t, imagine meeting an Adonis who actually fit the name Adonis? Michael B Jordan is totally an Adonis. And that’s his character in the new Rocky movie: Apollo Creed’s (one of the great names in all the movies) grandson, a boxer, trained by Balboa, obviously. Full Story

Michael B Jordan and Sly Stallone are in Philadelphia shooting Creed. It’s another Rocky movie. Except… wait for it… this time Rocky’s training Apollo Creed’s son, played by Jordan. Um. I totally want to see this movie. Allison Williams was at the Michael Kors presentation at NY Fashion Week today, I think her first public appearance since it all went to sh-t with her dad. Full Story

Fantastic Four looks surprisingly good

The thing that has always worried me about Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four reboot is that it would just be Chronicle: Redux. And then a couple months ago I saw some rough footage and had a definite YIKES reaction, so my expectations, which weren’t high to begin with, plummeted even lower. I was having flashbacks to Roger Corman’s infamous 1994 Fantastic Four, made entirely so that a studio could keep character rights from reverting to Marvel Entertainment. Full Story

During out etalk Ultimate Oscars Guide, I posited that Michael B Jordan should have been nominated for Best Actor for his work in Fruitvale. You remember that scene when Oscar’s in the grocery store and he pretty much assaults his ex-manager to get his job back? Right after charming the girl into buying the right fish and calling his moms about crab on her birthday? That’s real to me. Full Story

The cast for Fox’s Fantastic Four reboot has been announced and as has been expected  for a while now, Michael B. Jordan will star as Johnny “Human Torch” Storm. I’m really, really excited about this. Not only because Jordan is a good actor and deserves this kind of break, not only as a fan of FNL who likes to see Dillon alums get good gigs, but because this is the first major instance of colorblind casting for a superhero. Full Story

Two members of my 5 List were recognised at the Gotham Awards last night. Oscar Isaac was there representing Inside Llewyn Davis which won Best Film. And Michael B Jordan was named Breakthrough Actor. Early on in the season, especially after Cannes, both were considered to have a shot at an Oscar nomination for Best Actor. Full Story

The Spirit Award nominees were announced today. And Michael B Jordan’s name was on the list for Best Actor alongside Chiwetel Ejiofor, Bruce Dern, Oscar Isaac (!), Matthew McConaughey, and Robert Redford. That’s great company for a young actor who’s had a great, great year, non? There could be more, too. Full Story
