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

After helping to get End of Watch and Nightcrawler made, Jake Gyllenhaal is making it official and opening his own production company. The name of his company is not yet known, but he’s just signed a first-look deal with Bold Films, the production company behind Nightcrawler. He’s also nabbed Riva Marker, who has produced dozens of films including The Kids Are All Right, Beasts of No Nation, and The Family Fang, to run his company. Full Story

What was I juuuuuust saying in the post earlier today about Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux getting married? Celebrity timing. Coincidence or conspiracy. For 10 years, these three (now four) have been at it, back and forth, back and forth, tit for tat. Today? No difference. As you know, today we found out about Jen’s wedding. Full Story

The Man From U.N.C.L.E. comes out in a couple of weeks. So Henry Cavill is on the cover of UK Men’s Health probably talking about working out; the interview hasn’t been released yet, although I did find one detail that’s supposedly from the magazine: For Superman, Henry has to add a ton of muscles, but he needs to look a lot slimmer to play Solo, and his trainers keep him in check. Full Story

Yesterday I expressed annoyance with Zoolander 2 for wasting everyone’s time (and Paramount’s money) with a teaser trailer that was nothing. If you can’t illuminate some aspect of the film itself, don’t bother—wait until you actually have something to say about your movie before opening your digital mouth and demanding our attention. Full Story

Brange’s By The Sea, written and directed by Angelina Jolie Pitt and starring Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, opens in November. We were hoping the film would hit the festival circuits, giving us some Pitt Porn in Venice and Toronto. That’s not happening. They’re just going to drop it on us when it’s scheduled to drop on us, and basically when award season really gets going and the top contenders start to emerge. Full Story

Deadpool: Ryan Reynolds might actually have pulled this off

No one has had worse luck with superhero movies than Ryan Reynolds. He’s been in three superhero movies of varying levels of bad—Blade: Trinity, hilariously awful; Wolverine: Origins, spectacularly bad; Green Lantern, disastrous—and if you add the completely misguided R.I.P.D., a non-superhero comic book adaptation to his roster, he’s 0-4. Full Story

This man is not Bond and no one understands

Needed this on a sh-tty day… Idris Elba covers Maxim. And they point out that he probably won’t be the next James Bond – right now it’s looking like it could be Damian Lewis because…I don’t know why. I don’t know why anyone wouldn’t think Idris Elba wouldn’t be a perfect Bond. Full Story
