View Full Version : New photo
12-10-2004, 08:14 AM
There has been a new cast photo released, and i would like to point out that Gruffaud looks a lot more mature and COULD work-although he IS from the school of acting where they just make weird facial expressions and over emphasise the wrong words in sentences (a popular technique).
Johnny looks cool, smoking slightly.
Jessica Alba looks so hot, i'm falling in love with the lady again (first time was Idle Hands).
THE THING ROCKS (yes, pun intended). May i draw your attention to his size in the picture in relation to the other members....he's HUGE!!! Chiklis himself is a little shorter than the other gents, but i believe they may be adjusting that-
-is everyone cool with this movie yet? I mean, at least its getting made, and i think that they may actually do a good job with an arguably weak basis.

The image is the best so far, but one thing bugs me about it. Photoshop. I know, pretty much every damn poster out there now is digitally altered and assembled, but it's also a matter of degrees. Plus being around and in the DCG I'm sure many of us have the I could do that attitude. Hell, I know many DCGs who could do better.
Here they took four separate photos of the cast, airbrushed and darkened the snot out of them and then salpped them together. They don't mesh. With the four as a family aspect of the film, that's quite a bad thing. Hell, can they even physically stand like that? Did they even get the proportions right? Everyone remember the initial Daredevil psoters where there was no way in hell he was standing on the rooftop at that angle? The floor looks similarly off here. Like many posters, this looks like another photostop hack job. I hope the movie itself doesn't have a similar fate.
The poster may look cool, but there are these little things that bug your eye and brain about angles not being right. Heh, plus maybe I'm a little extra sensative to this as I jsut wrote a term paper about how the brain interprates 3D space. Man, jsut look at Mr. Fantastic's food on our right. That should not be touching the floor at that angle. It just bugs my brain.
Plus I'm still nto sold on Sue and Johnny. Their hair looks odd and just seeing Alba blonde is odd. Normally I think she's fantastically hot, but here she's got an odd posture and look, not just the hair. Plus the way they airbrushed the odd lighting does nothing for her fine figure.
Also, why so dark? Maybe suppsoed ot be all outerspace like. I know it's not a comedy, but FF shouldn't look like Daredevil. It should be lighter.

BORRING! Have any of these people ever seen a Kirby cover? This is what the FF looks like when the producers think the stars are the most important element of their movie.
I don't know why I did it, I don't know why I enjoyed it, and I don't know why I'll do it again.
12-10-2004, 02:58 PM
Yeah. That's another thing. What's so fantastic about four people standing around? I know it's a teaser, but it's damn bland.

I agree that photoshop plays a big part in these pictures these days....;and that the feet are slightly funny...
But, to defend them, this isn't a poster/teaser anything like that. Its a promo shot, like the type that would be in a magazine interview/cover.
which makes it ok.
The leaked photos of bale in costume were hardly batman in Jim Lee/Frank Miller action either...
the pic is ok and finally they are all together there. BUT if u copy and paste on a empty box in photoshop the image is small as a nail!! i tried to enlarge it but its not looking right. wheres the larger version of the pic?
but the image (even though i can really see it that good) has the right look at my case. finally i see the boots and full costume. the thing is really big on there and the costumes are really futuristic looking to me. i hope that johnny isnt ganna have the black hair for long. the blonde is an important part of johnny. and sue looks young for mr.fantastic in the pic but i guess thats how it goes. theres always a problem but the thing looks all good to me.

Sue looking a lot younger than Reed was supposed to be the case. Remember: She, indeed, was a young GIRL when she is supposed to hook up with Reed (not TOO young of a girl, however, I mean a girl of about 18 or 19 or so), still somebody who's LEGAL. The fact that she DOES appear younger than him is a good thing. Particularly since I felt that Ioan Grufford looked TOO young to be playing Reed in the first place. I like the way that they have Johnny with heat waves pulsating from his body, and Ben looks MUCH better to me in this pic then others I've seen of them, because his body mass IS supposed to look like it looms over the other 3. I liked it, although, I must admit, it looks all posed and such. Jessica Alba looks like she's posing for Playboy, quite frankly, so that threw me a tad. They've actually done that to her in the other promo pic as well, which, I guess, they are trying to do the "sex up" angle for her.

Didn't know where else to post this, but apparently tonight (12/21) Entertainment Tonight will be visiting the set of the FF film.
Certainly there'll be interviews with the principles, and maybe some behind scenes info.
Sorry, but I think I made a mistake about this. :-(

JESSICA ALBA AS THE INVISIBLE WOMAN!?!?!?!?! what the $#%@!?!?!?! god i hate these casting directors. whoever would cast Alba as Mrs Fantastic should be stoned to death
just thinking...mr.fantastic is american but the actor who plays him has a british accent...so is there ganna (lol). and for invisable woman...just live with it. u kno so much stupid remarks gotta be made on everything...and ppl just dont stop...like this..why isnt johnny blonde in the movie and wheres the things big eyebrow?...
01-10-2005, 08:28 AM
The thing that kills me about Alba as Sue is that I am a fan of hers and she is beutiful. Yet I can't understand why she would go blonde for this character. She looks much better and natural as a brunette and it is jsut going to strike the public and fans as odd. I mean it's not as bad as Reeves as Constantine, but it does not quite look right. Well, as long as she gets the character right. I think Halle Berry could have made a good looking Catwoman.. if they actually made a movie about the character.

This film was cast way back in May or so last year, was just wondering WHY you are commenting NOW on the casting of Alba in the role, when the film is essentially finished??
I mean, I actually agree with you, I felt that Jessica Alba was NOT right for the role, however, this is an OLD issue. Was just wondering why you wanted to discuss it now??

It's called a delayed shock reaction. I expect you'll do the same when Matt Damon is cast as Namor! http://www.comics2film.com/UBB/biggrin.gif
Meoww! Send in the clowns!

AHHHHHH, YESSSS......... can always count on YOU for a clear and concise answer, now CAN'T I .......WELSHY!!? (By the way, if that DOES wind up happening.........)
UGH! PLEASE!! Let's not even THINK about that!!!!

In the current issue of EW, there's a great photo of the Thing. He's looking over at a pigeon that pooped on his shoulder.
01-18-2005, 05:15 PM
Yes, I saw that one! Looked great! I guess this photo is what people were referring to when they were rumoring that the film was going for more comedy. But that's NOT what they were really talking about. They have comedic ELEMENTS to it, and that pidgeon shot seems to verify it! Was VERY amusing!

In the latest "newest pics" information here on the web, has anyone here been able to access it? I keep getting some site that's in German, and it really dosen't do a very good job of telling me as to HOW to access the new pics, which are supposed to be a shot of Jessica Alba in her "4" costume, and a GREAT group photo of them that's supposed to be at the end of the film. Have any of you seen these new pics.......and if so, HOW do I access them?? Please........PLEASE..........SHARE!
03-08-2005, 05:21 PM
OK, I just tried something out. I went to superherohype.com (sorry 'bout that!) But when I clicked onto the news item about the newest set pics, I decided to try clicking onto the first link in the story, the one at the top of the page. That one was supposedly no good because the web site had taken down the pics, so in the newsstory, they posted ANOTHER link to click onto that would give you the pics (hence, the problem that I was originally having in trying to view these). If any of you all go try to view these newest pics, simply click onto the FIRST link, and scroll down until you come to the actual pics. This is taken from a German web site of some sort, so unless some of you do SPRECHEN ZE DEUTCH, chances are you won't be able to follow what they tell you to do. Just keep scrowlling down, till you come to the pics of Doom (before AND after shots), and the rest of the gang. Some of these we've all seen already, but there are 1 or 2 that will make you all go "NICE"! Well......MAYBE some of you will say that, I don't know!
the teaser poster...this one has the human torch really FLAMING not just blowing smoke.
cant wait to see this in the theatres...
03-11-2005, 10:20 PM
Wow. It's the same old photo of the four of them crappily pasted next to each other, only now it has even more bad photoshop effects. Man, it's either sad or good that there are pieces in the DCG that are better assembled than that image being put into thearters.
03-14-2005, 04:13 PM
I'm curious as to why they just didn't wait until NOW to make a teaser poster the way that they did WITHOUT taking the one that we are all used to and photo shopping it. I mean, I think the poster itself is essentially FINE, but the fact that, as The Xenos points out, it's just more PHOTOSHOP work done on it, why couldn't they just wait a couple of more months and then put this one out? I think people would've been fine with it as it stands NOW, but considering the way they are photographed, you'd think they would just get maybe another still from the film and do a better photoshop job on it. I don't think it's a bad one, but I can see what Mr. X. is saying. (Plus, you all notice how Reed's powers are never represented in this poster?) They've got everyone else's powers well represented, but NOT Mr. Fantastic's. Odd.
03-14-2005, 04:17 PM
Another thing: these 4 new photos. I really liked the one with Reed standing there with that thougtful, intense look on his face trying to figure out what happened to Ben, with him standing in front of a graphics screen with images of Ben before and after his transformation. The "Flame On" moment with Johnny's hand is cool, The Thing looks great in his pic, but, they've GOT TO ........they've just GOT TO....... find another pic of Sue/Invisible Woman, other than the shot of her from the trailer, where she's reacting after recoiling from Doom's attack on her! Don't they have any other pics of her in action other than THAT one???
here's some new pics of the f4 and 2 new posters. one actually looked like a power rangers pic...here ya go http://www.fantastic411.com/
johnny looks really cool on fire...
03-25-2005, 10:13 PM
Well I think they all look great. Jessica Alba I also think was a great choice for the part. She was great in Dark Angel as a super-hero type character so why not as The Invisible Woman. I think she'll play the role well.
03-28-2005, 01:07 PM
I like that new FF poster a lot! Only thing is: Is that supposed to be Doom flying around their over to the right of The Invisible Woman?? That's who I THINK it is.
04-12-2005, 11:29 AM
Anyone else see the newest pic in today's news concerning this flick? It's got Ben and Von Doom sitting at a table in a diner (it would appear), with Ben seated in front with a stack of pancakes, and Von Doom sitting there smiling at Ben. I would imagine that the pic was a "quiet moment" between Julian McMahon and Michael Chiklis, in between takes on the set. It's quite a funny little moment, it would appear, between the 2 of them. There's also an accompanying couple of quickie interviews with Jessica Alba and Tim Story (Chiklis as well). Check it out, y'all!
(Sorry, I don't know how to put in the link for this, you're all going to have to just check it out the usual way, I suppose!)
