Most of the recent Marvel Cinematic Universe films often end up with end-credit teasers. However, the 2015 reboot of 20th Century Fox's "Fantastic Four" movie franchise won't have one as it hopes to provide a "wide open" plot for a possible sequel.
This is what actor Jamie Bell revealed to MTV News at Comic-Con International this weekend.
"No we don't, there's no post-credits sequence," the star who portrays the new Ben Grimm/The Thing in the forthcoming Marvel big screen offering explained. Needless to say, the reality of the follow-up project, which has been given with a June 9, 2017 release date, will be largely dependent from the success of the initial film. more >>

Paramount Studios is taking the first step in an experiment of sorts, if when successful, may change the way people will watch movies in the near future. According to reports, Paramount has successfully negotiated with two of the biggest cinema chains in North America, AMC and Cineplex, to take part in this trial run.
The two cinema chains agreed to make two films, namely "Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension" and "Scout's Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse," available via video-on-demand (VOD) just 17 days after the films are shown on fewer than 300 cinemas. This is a peculiar arrangement for exhibitors such as AMC and Cineplex, who would normally insist that a long time should pass between cinema and home viewing. This is based on the assumption that people are "less likely to go to the cinema if a film is available to watch at home."
The rise of paid video streaming services such as Netflix, however, has shortened this time period. Most viewers now expect titles to be available for home viewing faster than usual. Most exhibitors normally see streaming services as a threat on their business. more >>
