It's probably only getting bad reviews because it's not based on any of the Marvel comic books, which was the whole point when making this movie, that's why it's not owned by Marvel. I've waited months for this movie to be released and it's finally here, can't wait to see it! I've noticed how fans tried comparing this movie to the comic books when they need to realize it's meant to be an original script and it's directed by Josh Trank, who also did Chronicle, my top favorite superhero movie of all time (based on an original script). I'm going in with high expectations, screw negative reviews, everyone has different taste.
@lugnuts I used to say preview when I was a kid, then I started saying trailer because that's the main term used, but back then everyone used to say preview, now it seems like they're all saying trailer as well. I think trailer is a better term for it though, preview sounds too independent and lame now. So I guess you are the only one who doesn't call them trailers. I know some people still say preview though.
What original ending? Saying the original ending sets up Fast & Furious 8 doesn't tell us sh*t about it, we want details, I wanna know what the original ending was.
Even though they have the story read for Fast & Furious 8 and plan to continue for at least another 2 sequels, since the project hasn't been officially announced, please make 7 the last one, I don't wanna see one without Paul Walker. Also they should've brought her back like a couple of sequels ago instead of just a cameo in a post-credits scene of Fast Five. If he was still around then I'd love them to keep going like they planned, but it wont be the same without him.
@lazerdude obviously you missed the part where he said filming wouldn't expand to 12 years, which makes sense because school only lasts for 12 years, college is only 4, sometimes a year or 2 longer depending on how long you wanna go, and he didn't say anything about expanding it into a trilogy and showing what happens after college. Which if he ends up doing that, we're basically watching a kid's entire life in a movie.
Damn I just thought Dylan O'Brien was a choice that someone wanted as the new Spider-Man when I saw people commenting guesses for one of those pics the Teen Wolf page was posting to present a new character. I didn't think he was actually being considered.
@Brizzy I was the same way, but it actually looks badarse.
Never read the book, always heard about it from people who were so eager to see the movie though. But I'm only on here to say of course they're gonna make the other 2 in the trilogy, everyone already knew that, there wouldn't be a point in doing one book in the series and not the rest. @josh You spoke too soon, just wait for it, I'd say close to the release of the second adaptation, or at least close to the time they begin filming they'll announce it.
Reboots don't deserve to exist, there's no reason for it. There should be a law that states if the original was great and most if not all people loved it, then it's illegal to reboot it. Five years after Spider-Man 3 we get The Amazing Spider-Man that reboots the trilogy, then Sony plans 3 sequels to follow, now it hasn't even been a year since The Amazing Spider-Man 2 hit theaters and they're already discussing another reboot. F*ck you! Bring back the original trilogy or shut the whole f*cking project down.
@ghostman Actually I remember back when Fast Five first came out, even though everybody knew there was gonna be another one because Vin Diesel wanted the franchise to be just a 2-part trilogy which he said in an interview that was how he envisioned it, there was a line in the movie where Dom said "We'll do one last job, take all of Reyes' money, every dime of it, and disappear forever." lol it was something like that at least, then came Fast & Furious 6 which really was supposed to be the final installment, but they talked about different reasons as to why they decided to split it and do a 7th, one was because of the story being too long to fit into one movie, the other was because of filming locations. But I guess Vin Diesel just likes odd numbers if he wants 7 to be the beginning of a new trilogy, so that just means he's in a competition with Universal because they wanna do a 10th to make it even lol, we may get more though because it'll never end. Either way I don't care if they keep going because I love the franchise and they always find a way to continue the story and make it fit with the rest.
John Wick was badarse, please do a sequel only as long as Keanu Reeves returns!
@cartman It's one last ride with Brian. It even hurts to say that. @gumperman If you're a fan of Paul Walker and you wanna see it for him, then you could also honor his memory by watching the whole franchise before seeing Furious 7, plus you'll get an insight on where the franchise started and how it lead up to this moment. Don't get mad though, it was just a suggestion lol.
@instead8909 In that case since not many people know about it, the number goes back down to 2 because I don't count it.
They're gonna do The Silver Surfer in the sequel again? When it comes to Marvel, they always change out the villains for the reboots. But then again I don't know what all villains The Fantastic Four face in the comics as they're the least talked about and only 2 movies have been made yet of them.
I never knew that Iron Man became a villain (or at least something like a villain) in the comics. Also Robert Downey Jr. just made me really wanna see Snowpiercer now.
In a way I wasn't all hyped to see this movie because it's a reboot, but then again I was most likely gonna see it anyway, and the casting along with Josh Trank pulled me in, Trank did a GREAT job in Chronicle, man I f*cking love Chronicle, it's actually my favorite superhero film ever made with Hanc*ck under it. But for all the dumbarses who don't bother to read, Trank stated that The Fantastic Four isn't based on any of the comic books, it's a completely original story, hence why they made Johnny Storm black. Plus it wouldn't have mattered if they still kept to the comic books, we'll end up getting another reboot in about 10 more years anyway, look at Batman and Spider-Man. The only thing people disagree about with those movies between the original and the reboot is the casting to play the superhero and super villain, except for The Joker, I think most people would agree that Heath Ledger did a better job, but I could be wrong, I personally thought he did badarse though. Trank pulled off Chronicle and I think that was his first movie to direct if I remember, instantly became a fan of him because of it, so I have high hopes for The Fantastic Four. One more thing, Trank even said in the commentary that he went to Stan Lee about his plans for the movie and Stan Lee loved the idea, I think the movie would turn out differently if Stan Lee didn't like what Trank wanted to do with it.
@cvnt$top I think they said one was adopted or something like that. @justin Lomas For me it was more like a kind of teaser you'd get from a movie adaptation from an old popular cartoon TV show that they're actually bringing to life and everyone has been wanting so bad, something like when Transformers first came out, we got such a small teaser like a whole year before the actual movie came out that we didn't get sh*t other than the scene on mars and a shadow of a Transformer stepping on the mars rover. @thedude1 The Thing actually looks better than in the original, like real rock and not CGI. Plus it looks like it's gonna be darker than the original which I'm gonna enjoy. And it's by Trank, so I got a good feeling it's gonna be awesome.
@josh It's well worth the watch, awesome show!
This is the only superhero show out of both Marvel and DC that I watch, I think it's mainly because it doesn't have the hero sill dressing up to fight villains because in this era Batman doesn't exist (the name anyway) so there are no superheroes yet and it's a prequel showing what happened in Gotham before Bruce Wayne became Batman. Also, it's Batman. :)
