Get your best glimpse at Jamie Bell's Thing from Fantastic Four

03.25.2015

Despite being just 4 months out, we STILL haven't seen a whole hell of a lot from Josh Trank's FANTASTIC FOUR. I think that might be for the best, if only to surprise audiences with a quality product. Yes, I'm giving Trank and Co. the benefit of the doubt, and if you ask me, the teaser trailer (of which you can watch below) only reinforced that. One of the film's biggest mysteries has been that of Jamie Bell's Thing. While there are only so many ways you can show us a man made out of rock, this picture posted on a fan's Instagram page gives us our closest look at the character.

Motion capture is becoming more of the norm these days when it comes to big-budget affairs, and Bell's performance is one I'm looking forward to almost as much as James Spader's in AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON. Bell's been delivering solid performances in minor roles for the past decade, so let's see what he does when you give him a big character like Ben Grimm. Add to that the support of Miles Teller, Kate Mara and Michael B. Jordan, and you have one of the best ensembles of young talent you could hope for in a FANTASTIC FOUR movie.

FANTASTIC FOUR hits theaters on August 7, 2015.

Wait. I thought Josh Gad was Thing. WTF is going on here or do I just totally not give a shit about this subcontiously that I missed Jaimie Bell?

This movie can't dig itself any deeper. But Kate Mara, I've seen her in other films and she always looks so incredibly bored all the time.

I had no idea Jamie Bell was even in this because of all the negative attention given to the other cast members. I wouldn't mind seeing Bell...in a different movie.

Say what you want about the movie, but The Thing looks like The Thing. What more could you possibly want in that department??

Is someone else doing the voice of Thing? I honestly can't see Bell's normal voice working for Thing, but perhaps he can do something like Bale did for his Batman voice?

Nope. That's an opinion based on pretty much nothing. What I think is even funnier than what you think is funnier, is that you only came here to comment on what other people think.

"What I think is even funnier than what you think is funnier, is that you only came here to comment on what other people think." is two sentences: "What I think is even funnier than what you think is funnier" and "What I think is even funnier is that you only came here to comment on what other people think." It's non-standard English.

Jesus I wasn't trying to write a novel here. The comment was written that way to reflect the level of silliness displayed in the original comment. Epic fail because instead it seems to have been taken so literally as to be critiqued by some literary geniuses. I'm happy to discuss grammar further but I thought we were discussing FF. No wait, we were discussing what other people thought of FF on this thread weren't we?

The trailer confuses me.
The poster makes me angry.
This wont be nowhere as good as Christopher Nolan's creative genius The Dark Knight trilogy.
Lastly I dont even care.

Cracks me up

They don't know what they like, but they sure do know what they don't like. That probably sounds like a challenge to list all the things you wish this movie was, but it wasn't. Don't strain yourself.

Not the greatest ...

But, it will not be just about how he looks though that's a huge part of it. It's going to be the details. When he moves does it feel and look like stone rubbing on stone. Will there be dust particles and small fragments coming off of him as he moves? That's what will sell it. Think of what they did with HellBoy's fist. That felt like it was made of stone. If they can do that, and get the voice right we may finally get a Thing that we can feel good about.

It looks like The Thing

I have no issue with the cast of the FANTASTIC FOUR remake: so far, that seems like the best element of this film. Bell was an especially good call: he easily held his own against the great Andy Serkis in THE ADVENTURES OF TINTIN (not exactly a "minor role," Sean) so I think he'll be great in this, if the script allows him.

Tough to say from that shot - seems like cinematic versions of Thing are prone to them under-selling his facial features. Chunky, jutting eyebrows and a big-ass jaw would define his facial features better - give him a stronger silhouette - if you don't do that he just has a fairly indistinct pile of rocks look to him. Same with his torso and fists - they need really distinct edges - slabs of rock if you will - to give his form dynamism.
