Fantastic Four: Rise of The Silver Surfer

Tim Story on Fantastic Four: Rise of The Silver Surfer
Source: Tim Story August 18, 2006

Well here we are. Exactly two weeks til this all gets under way. Seeing a lot of stuff now.

The latest test of Chiklis' new thing makeup is looking good. I think I told you guys about how we were improving the suit. For one it's lighter and will allow Chikie to be more athletic. I know many of you wish the Thing could've been more agile, well you got it. Michael's excited. We've made improvements to areas like the brow. Yes yes, it's a little bigger. You guys have to remember the brow can't be too big because it just doesn't look as good as you might think, but we have improved it. This all came from the fans saying they wish it were bigger. He'll be wearing more clothes as well. Now that he's comfortable with himself, we can have more fun with his appearance. Wait until you see him in his tux.

The new mask for Doom is awesome. There's a more evil tone to it. I've been working on a maquette of the entire Doom look, complete with armor with my friends at Spectral Motion (the guys who brought you Thing, Beast, Juggernaut, Hellboy, etc...) The look is madd cool. I think you guys will like it. And don't worry Julian will be seen. I talked to him yesterday and he can't wait to get busy.

The Silver Surfer's look just continues to get better. We're trying test on the wake that his board will leave and we're starting to really get into the look of his eyes. Classic Surfer looks from the comic. I think you will all enjoy it. Yes, now the question that I keep getting asked too many times...Doug Jones or no Doug Jones. Here's the low down. Doug has been working on a number of things regarding the Surfer. In order for the presence of the CGI SS to appear and move real, we need someone to perfect movement and provide a base, to which WETA can do their thing. That the jest of it. I don't know what that confirms for you guys but there you go.

Oh yeah, I didn't tell you guys the result of my "studio meetings". Well it wasn't as painful as I thought it was going to be. We found places to cut and not mess with the integrity of the movie. Both sides were happy. 6 hrs ya'll...6! Stuck in a room - dissecting every piece of this movie. The coolest thing was actually the difficulty in finding things to cut. That normally means you need what you got. For the aspiring directors and writers - if you cut it out and find that you don't miss it...you never needed it.

As filming begins, I'll try to share on set pix. I can't get to crazy but whatever I can I will. And for those of you expecting me to pop up on Superherohype, forgive me, I just didn't think that I could keep up with two different blog areas. My days are swamped as you can imagine.

Fantastic Four: Rise of The Silver Surfer hits theaters on June 15, 2007.

The more I hear and read about this movie, the more its sounding.  This movie might surprise a lot of peeps this summer.

it's been announced that Andre Braugher has a role in the film.. not sure what, though.. besides the Panther and a few other characters, the FF has a relative scarcity of blacks in their traditional supporting cast/extended family.. of course, Alicia is black this time, maybe he's Philip Masters? (ooh, another gut-shot to the fanboys..)

I'm interested in seeing the new Thing make-up and Dooms appearance wasn't a problem for me in the movie it was his voice and demeanor.  I hope he's less of a smarmy playboy this time around.

Blackfilm.com announced that Braugher will be playing neither Puppet Master nor Silver Surfer as has been rumored.  Instead he's playing a general in FF2.  Read more here:

I love the sleek design myself.  Besides it's not like the Fantasicar hasn't been updated to reflect the times.  Frankly, like the Batman Begins Batmobile, the new Fantisticar will draw grumbles from some comic fans who will then be praising it when the vehicle is zipping around on the silver screen.

BTW, USA Today interviewed Tim Story and the designers of the Fantasicar, who explain why they went with this look:

Man, that was cool!  Story's vision really has nailed the tone of the Surfer's first visit to Earth.

to see the trailer at the movie (night of the museum was a great pic) and watch SS was AMAZING.  Man it's gonna rock is correct Open Palm.  Although SS is not the title character, to see SS and Ghost Rider on film are going to be great time to see in action.

The trailer is fantastic.

Silver Surfer looks incredible. I love when he's surfing down the side of the building and when he passes through the bus.

I was already looking forward to seeing the movie, but this raised the excitement level even further.

Hmmm...previews always make a movie look good. The first one wasn't good but I might end up seeing this one.

You should have seen the deleted scenes of FF. Man, I wish I was brushed up by Kerry Washington.  ;D
