Merrick added a straggler image...WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE bottom of article.

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with the first of 3 articles featuring Pitdoc's coverage and spy pics from the floor of the New York Licensing Show. His report is below with images from the promotional set-ups for FANTASTIC 4 2 (boring poster except for the new title), HARRY POTTER AND THE ORDER OF THE PHOENIX (looks like Harry's trimmed his hippy cut from the last couple movies... and yes, I knew it was the 5th book, but my sleep deprived brain saw me type Fantastic 4 and decided to carry the 4 over. Sorry about that, Potterheads. All is fixed now...), the greatest movie of the year TENACIOUS D IN THE PICK OF DESTINY and the Jerry Seinfeld animated flick at Dreamworks called BEE MOVIE. This is the show where it was recently found out that INDIANA JONES 4 has a 2008 release date penciled in by Lucasfilm. Nifty, eh?

Look to the other articles for more pics, including the below mentioned FAIRIES, SPIDEY 3, WATER HORSE, GOLDEN COMPASS and much more!!!

Hey guys. Pitdoc here with greetings from NYC & the 2006 Licensing Show . Its the show every year when companies try to market images or ideas, be them from movies, videos,or even games.. This year showed a bit of a resurgance in some companies marketing movies, but some disappointment in others. First, the disappointments..

As it is every year, Marvel, while having blockbuster movies in the theaters, had a thoroughly lackluster booth, with NO good promotion of the X-men,and only a few so-so posters for upcoming movies (Spiderman 3, and interestingly, "The Fantastic 4 & The Silver Surfer" ? ).

Disney seemed to have no new Pixar movies out, and the only thing they seemed to be promoting( BIGTIME) was "Faeries" .Now I'm not sure if this will be a movie or TV series, but apparently, they'be got Tinkerbelle and her entire clan of tiny winged ladies hitting the big time....And they look...ahem.... alarmingly hot ( Insert sick joke here) .

Dreamworks only seemed to have two movies they were pushing.. Kung Fu Panda, and Bee Movie.

Unfrotunately, Warner Bros didnt seem to be pushing Superman THAT hard . Though they had some nice walls with pictures of cartoon Dc characters, as well as teaser wallof The harry Potter Movie, as well as Where the Wild Things are.. But no big push on any of them..

But , for the first time in years, the big winner was ...New Line..Havent seem them with such a good lineup since LOTR. They had several large promo manequins from The Golden Compass, as well as wall sized posters for Hairspray and Tenacious D.But the best thing was their trailer screen ,showing trailers for at least TEN movies, among them Mr Woodcock , a trailer for the video game War for Middle Earth , Tenacious D, The Martian Child, Shoot Em Up ( An action flick with Clive Owen, Paul Giamatti,and Monica Bellucci) , A movie called Mimzy ( something about a toy bunny and other dimensions), Fracture, The Nativity , and a large making of video ,with some CGI, for the Golden Compass. Oh,,yes,, and of course ....Snakes on a MFing Plane!!. Now I'm not sure if some or any of these have played ( I know TCM:The Beginning , has), but New Line hit it out of the park with their booth. Another thing, it was for " buyers only" was a promotional video , with pre-prod CGI, for Transformers, with interviews of Spielburg & Bay. Hope you enjoy the pics...

Now, here's a display for the Spike Jonez adpatation of Maurice Sendak's WHERE THE WILD THINGS are, due in theaters May 2008.

    The Silver Surfer?

    by Sean38

    Well, I guess it's in keeping with the goofy tone of the first Fantastic Four movie. But seriously. He's a SURFER. A guy, who surfs, in outer space. Best of luck bringing that to the big screen.

    by Timelord2112

    But Fantastic Four and the Silver Surfer?! That is a preliminary name right? If this next movie has Galactus, maybe they will be able to do what Singer did with X-men United and make a sequel that kicks the crap out of the first one! (not a super difficult thing to do, but still..)

    Silver Surfer

    by wessmith1966

    Didn't Jack Kirby kind of create Silver Surfer by drawing him into a story of FF. Stan Lee then took the surfer and fleshed him out, eventually vreating the Norrin Radd history?

    to mart1499: stan and silver surfer

    by ykb

    Kirby created the silver surfer. When he was drawing galactus he decided that he needed a herald, so he just drew the silver surfer. Stan liked the idea, so ta-duh! here we are today.

    by Red Raider

    One wonders if she's a moaner or a screamer. _________ Also, Silver Surfer will be a much needed booster shot to a series that needs to find it's way to the next level. I just hope this time they give the F4 FX guys a decent budget!

    Silver Surfer would not make a good movie on his own.

    by superninja

    Unless they changed the character around a lot. I'm sorry, but the guy just flies around on his board and pontificates. Don't get me wrong, I loved the character growing up (and visually interesting no doubt), but going back and reading comics, it's clear he is better as a supporting character as he is pretty much a cipher. He's a quest-to-be-human character like Data in Star Trek or Mr. Spock.

  • June 21, 2006, 1:15 p.m. CST

    by DerLanghaarige

    That means they got only one year to make the Silver Surfer look cool on screen? I've never been a fan of the Silver Surfer (Or the F4) and that'S why I can say that I kinda liked part 1, but seriously: THIS is a bad sign!

    Here is a summary of a Silver Surfer movie

    by superninja

    Silver Surfer: (in whiney voice) Oh, my beloved Shalla Bal! Why did I ever agree to become the Silver Surfer? Shall I never look upon your lovely countenance again? (Stuff blows up) Galactus: I thought we agreed you would become my herald so I wouldn't snuff out your entire planet. It sounded interesting at the time, but your whining is kind of getting old. Silver Surfer: Oh, that's right. Galactus: I'm hungry, go find me another planet to eat. Silver Surfer: No, I will rebel against you! Galactus: Okay, then I will get a rapper from Earth to be my new herald and perform on the soundtrack. (Galactus is a marketing genius, just like Hollywood!). Then you will fight to the death and thwart me from eating the planet.

    Congrats To Them On The FF Title

    by CaptDanielRoe

    And not calling it 4-2, four squared, even Fantastic 4 2, or some nonsense like that. Fantastic Four and The Silver Surfer works. It also gives The Silver Surfer, who might also have had his own film, star billing. ....Oh and anyone who has a problem with a dude surfing in outer space has missed, in my opinion, the entire point of comic books. People just think Superman and Batman and Spider-Man make sense because those characters are more familiar. ...But seriously. That's not the case. Think about it.

    Silver Surfer

    by Fernwick_

    The best storyline to adapt would be the Silver Surfer One shot issue. That has everything including the movie like ending. And I think Keanu is actually a good choice, but sorry, Galactus MUST be GGI. PLEASE make the Thing Bigger this time, no more man in suit ok?? Fernwick

    Yet another reason Silver Surfer doesn't need his own

    Silver Surfer toon

    by BrandLoyalist

    Had duly austere tone, for a Saturday morning cartoon that is. Lots of angst and gravitas. 'N there was Beta Ray Bill 'n stuff! But that's how they need to play Silver Surfer, as a total straight man, solemn and troubled, even if the movie was the same "fun" tone as the first. Let the FF get the laffs.

  • June 21, 2006, 3:42 p.m. CST

    by Ribbons

    I mean, it is supposed to be tousled and messy, right? He's practically up to military qualifications in that thar picture. Then again it's an obvious photoshop job, so maybe it had grown out a bit by the time principal photography had started. Let's hope so, anyway; if not, the film is ruined!

    Silver Surfer...

    by Quelyn

    The Silver Surfer was introduced in Fantastic Four issue number 48 I believe. He was introduced as Galactus' herald & the origin that Kirby was going for was that he was created by Galactus & therefore had no sense of humanity or Morality. So when he met up with Alicia Masters (The things girlfriend) she helped teach him a sense of the human spirit. Later Stan Lee gave the Surfer an Origin & used it as an outlet for his more serious storylines. Kirby did not like this as it did not fit the idea he had for the surfer. Silver Surfer is my favorite comic hero, I have a tattoo of him on my arm :) So needless to say I'm looking forward to this movie. Perhaps they will mess it up, perhaps they will not. one can only hope. I really hope they get an unknown cast for him. If they play their cards right this could be the greatest comic book movie of all time. But, I imagine it will instead be the worst.

    ummm...Order of the Phoenix.

    by vinceklortho

    should be good but I'm wondering about the length of the book translated to the movie. The book is super long and has a lot of poo poo filler that I'm sure they are going to cut for the sake of making it a 2.5 hour movie. Either way, I'm excited about it cause I didn't really like the Harry in that book. Really conflicted and whiny. It's called characterization and I'm really afraid that they won't stay true to Harry's progression. Why you ask? Because it's Hollywood. The suits probably never read the books and will look at it and say, "Hey, why is Harry all mean and grumpy? I don't like that and certainly the American public won't stand for it!" Now, I know I'm getting ahead of myself, I've loved all the movie versions so far. But, just a little apprehensive...

    I'd have liked a solo Surfer pic as well

    by Ribbons

    Something about that silver sadsack cruising through the emptiness of space seems like it would have been a good idea. But the more I think about it, the less I'm convinced it lends itself to cinematic interpretation as easily as I'd originally estimated. Here's the general outline for what I'd assume a Surfer film (leading to his appearance in the FF's universe) would shake down like: Norin Radd (sp?) makes a deal with Galactus to spare his home world and assumes the mantle of herald to the Destroyer of Worlds. Somewhere down the line, he finds a planet, marks it for discussion, but then has a change of heart and tries to save it (through ways that are not overtly hostile to Galactus) and fails. The next planet on the menu is Earth and, determined to save it from a similar fate, he enlists the help of the Fantastic Four, yadda yadda. But that idea seems flimsy for a lot of reasons I hadn't previously considered, and maybe it's better off that Surfer re-asserts his "human"ity in the FF franchise rather than in his own. Which isn't to say that it's impossible to make a good Surfer movie under those conditions or with a story that's nothing like it, just that my feeble imagination can't envision it. So I'm not sure whether to think that bringing him into the 'Fantastic Four' fold first was a bad idea anymore. I *do* still think that it's a bad idea to set up the Galactus story this early in the game, but maybe Fox thinks there's not enough gas in the tank to carry the team through more than three pictures. And maybe it's for the best, since I don't really like the creative team in charge of these movies anyway.

    by samsnee79

    Just like he named everyone else in the original, I can see some dumb writer think that is the best way to have the name seem believable but not cheesy. Only they won't call actually call him "Silver Surfer". And Galactus won't be in it... instead he'll be a colleague of Reed Richards who is transformed into the Surfer through a lab experiment.

In fact that's my new nickname for you, and I will say it on TV so that everyone else knows what to call you as well! Even though Ben's never forgiven me for giving the rest of the world permission to call him 'The Thing,' but who cares? I'm incorrigible! Well, see ya later, I have to go compete in a street racing competition!" One of the problems of not giving the Silver Surfer his own movie is that someone's going to have to actually call him that if "we," the audience, are expected to know his name. I'm sure they'll do what they always do in these things and either have some news anchor or trashy tabloid rag christen him with the moniker offhand.

    SILVER SURFER TO BE PLAYED BY THE ROCK... google it... i'm not wrong

    Mimzy is based on that kickass sci-fi short story "Mimsy Were The Borogoves" by Moore & Kuttner. A futuristic toy gets sent back in time to today and fucks up two little kids with it's awesomeness. And the short-sighted parents try and straighten them out by bringing in a psychologist or scientist or some shit. Hopefully the movie will explore more of the bullshit that goes down when these kids get a hold of the technology. But it will probably end up as a HappyMeal ready tear-jerker, with a soundtrack by amazing talents such as Kelly Pickler and Bo Bice.

    Surfer shouldn't be CGI, you monkeys. But I seriously think Mike O'Malley would be a sweet choice for the role. Thoughts?

    No Script, No casting, and F4 & SS are do out June 07??

    by The Founder

    I see this movie easily going wrong already. They have a year before the release date, because it was moved up from July 4th, and filming hasn;t even started, Tim Story is back, and I have 0 percent faith this will be done right. Galactus will be phucked, SS will be phucked, and probably Doom will be phucked. Fox just refuses to learn any type of lesson.

    Silver Surfer is essentially an inverse of Superman's

    by superninja

    sacrifice. Instead of his homeworld dying, it survives and he dies, giving up his humanity in the bargain. The whole point of the character is searching to reclaim his humanity. In fact, if I recall correctly, it was later added that Galactus tampered with the Surfer, preventing him from the ability to make moral judgements so that he could be a more effective herald. Think that movie would get made?

    Dude, Hermione having big boobs at an inappropriate age and then having the costumers try and tape them down but then you see like a shitload of cleavage in one or two shots. Then in public she's like deck out and Maxim has her doing some sideboob shot. That'll be great. And in only... two years? how long is it?

    by BOOOOOOOO!!Bs

    SpiderMan were fighting a heroin problem. During the early sixties. Like it was barely concealed and the comic or movie showed how it was the source for him flubs during his history. Or what about a Justice League Unlimited movie? That would be a huge and appalling feat if done correctly? Anybody interested in giving some serious thought and development to the crazier, fringier stories that populate the comic book's world? I mean, we understand, mainstream, the concept of lots of superheroes, so let's at least make it interesting...

    target market? Because I thought it was teenage girls. My bad. By the way, Tinkerbell got the Hollywood makeover and now looks like a teenage girl (you know, target marketing?), so my point still stands.

    What is a fanboy anyway?

    by MrBoinfoint

    Obsessive collecting of useless figurines (read: dolls). Crushes and fixations upon celebrities (Jessica Alba, Scarlet Johansson, Tinkerbell) that could never realistically be requited. Food issues (The opposite of anorexia, but still). Fanboys are teenage girls living in the bodies of corpulent 30 year old men. Behaviorally, emotionally, psychologically, we're pretty much the same, only more twisted due to being trapped in an ever-extended adolescence. Look at Adult Swim. Naughty cartoons for big boys. And I love every second of it. I'm a fanboy and I geek out over Venture Brothers the way my 13 year old cousin geeks out over, I dunno, Bratz or Lindsey Lohan or Timberlake or something.

    Silver Surfer will be played by...

    by Daredevil

    Andy Serkis and he will be all CG, of course. Personally, I am glad to see they're doing the Surfer and Galactus. Can't wait for that, I just hope they don't screw it up. Can anyone see someone who hasn't a clue writing him like an actual surfer? Saying crap like "bro" and "gnarly" and "righteous dude". I can see that...and it scares me. If they actually pull this off, I think a possible Silver Surfer spin off movie would be good and all kinds of epic. We haven't seen that kind of superhero movie yet, and the only other hero I can see them doing a huge space epic with is Green Lantern. Although a Thor movie would be about as epic in a mythological fantasy way. Who cares about seeing the Surfer, GL, or Thor on earth? I want to see big space controntations with the likes of Firelord, Drax, Thanos. I want to see Oa and the Corps and a big fight with Sinestro. I want to see Asgard, trolls, ice giants, and Loki. Any of these three done right would make Superman Returns look like childs play (actually, a Superman movie done right would make Returns look like childs play.) As for the title, I don't mind The FF & Silver Surfer, but I think The FF & Galactus would be a better one.
