Toby Kebbell isn’t a hugely well-known actor in the U.S. — although he did impress audiences last year in the mo-cap role of Koba in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, the actor was somewhat wasted in Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four. Hopefully his immense talents will be far better utilized next year, as Kebbell goes from Koba to Kong in Kong: Skull Island.
As skeptical as many fans rightfully have been about Josh Trank’s reboot of Fantastic Four, there’s something sort of appealing about the film’s aesthetic and tone from the various teasers and trailers. In keeping with 20th Century Fox’s recent X-Men films, Fantastic Four looks as though it walks the line between the fun, vibrant world of the MCU and the grittier, stylized approach of Zack Snyder’s DCU.
This is probably the best Fantastic Four preview we’ve gotten yet, thanks to the use of Kanye West’s “Power,” thus proving that adding Kanye West to things automatically makes them better. The “Power” theme is obvious in the new spot, which showcases plenty of new footage in its short, 30-second runtime.
A new international trailer for Fantastic Four has arrived online, giving us another proper introduction to the team and another good look at the villainous Dr. Doom, who — you had to admit — looks much better than the version from the previous Fantastic Four movies.
While the first trailer for Fantastic Four left us a little puzzled, the recently released second trailer definitely made a bigger impression. We already knew Josh Trank’s take on the classic super-team was going to be a bit darker than the previous films, but the latest trailer reassured us that the reboot also has a sense of humor. But what else can we learn from the latest preview? Join us as we break down the new Fantastic Four trailer to see what clues it has to offer.
“From the studio that brought you ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’!” No, not Marvel; Fox.
We haven't known much at all about Fox's 'Fantastic Four' reboot: the studio opted not to bring the film to Comic-Con this year, so we've really only been able to speculate based on the casting, which has skewed young and a little subversive. But Toby Kebbell, who plays villain Dr. Doom in the upcoming film, has just revealed some details about his role in the film, revealing a pretty major change from the character fans are familiar with.
Just yesterday we brought you the first official teaser posters from Duncan Jones' adaptation of 'Warcraft' as the director hit Blizzard's annual BlizzCon convention to host a panel for his upcoming film. Jones recently wrapped filming on the project, and while little has been known about the adaptation, the director finally revealed the lineup of characters and divulged some plot details about the Alliance and the Horde.
There have been few performances as effective and moving this year as Andy Serkis' work as Caesar in 'Dawn of the Planet of Apes.' Combining Serkis' raw acting with the technical wizardry of a talented visual effects crew, the role feels like another huge leap forward for motion capture performances. So, naturally, 20th Century Fox is out to get Serkis an Oscar nod, even if it means getting him nominated in the wrong category.
If you don't know Toby Kebbell, you soon will. The 32-year-old actor recently finished production on Josh Trank's 'Fantastic Four' reboot, in which he plays the villainous Doctor Doom, and he also played bad ape Koba in 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.' In continuing this streak of villainy, Kebbell is looking to become the antagonist in the 'Ben-Hur' remake.
