Moviehole has two high resolution photos from the Alan Moore adaptation, which just wrapped principal photography, according to Newsarama.


Fans of Michael Chiklis' drama series "The Shield" will get an added treat tonight, according to Superhero Hype -- "an exclusive "Fantastic Four" trailer will be aired TONIGHT (June 14th) @ 10PM (check local listings) on FX during the season finale of Mike Chiklis' 'The Shield.'"


According to Sci Fi Wire, the new film was almost a short feature. During filming, actors Christian Bale and Liam Neeson were doing some close-up shots on a glacier in Iceland that was in danger of disintegrating. "It was melting and cracking, because there was a huge glacier behind," Bale said. "So it was moving down, and the pressure was cracking the ice, and it was thawing out at the same time. There were also people being scrambled off of the ice, because we had guys saying, 'No, no, no! This is going to collapse at any second.' Liam and me would look at each other and be like, 'All right, do we carry on or not?' I think it added that extra sense of urgency and tension to the scene. It was nice. And that was the very first day of shooting."

Meanwhile, composer Hans Zimmer talked to My Movies about using more electronic music for this film's score.

Finally Yahoo! Movies has twelve new clips from the DC adaptation.


Just a couple of random tidbits -- CBR's own Seth Jones talked to actor Samuel L. Jackson about being a Mark Millar fan and what he's been reading. Meanwhile, Australia's University of Melbourne hosted about 200 academics in looking at the cultural phenomenon of the superhero, or so says Sci Fi Wire.
