Happy August! Hope everyone is enjoying their summer so far. As always, if you’re looking for something to do, we have some new movie suggestions for the month just for you!
It’s been eight years since the last Fantastic Four film and we’re excited to get to see a reboot of the franchise on August 8th. Writer Simon Kinberg has re-imagined the comic book series and didn’t base the film off any issue of the Fantastic Four comics, so it’s going to be a completely different film for everyone. There has already been some online criticism regarding the casting of black actor, Michael B Jordan, as Johnny Storm, who’s always been depicted as a blond-haired, blue-eyed teenager. However, we’re excited to see the new changes and can’t wait to see the film when it hits theaters on August 8th.
