Change is coming.

A decade after the first Fantastic Four feature, Marvel’s Fantastic Four gets a cinematic reboot from writer-director Josh Trank, his follow-up to 2012's Chronicle.

Jordan (Chronicle) is The Human Torch; Jamie Bell (Snowpiercer) is The Thing; and a drastically different Dr. Doom – a hacker named Victor Domashev – is played by Toby Kebbell (Koba from Dawn of the Planet of the Apes).

Featuring extensive unseen archive footage and previously unheard tracks, this strikingly modern, moving and vital film shines a light on the world we live in, in a way that very few can. A once-in-a-generation talent, Amy Winehouse was a musician that captured the world's attention. A pure jazz artist in the most authentic sense - she wrote and sung from the heart using her musical gifts to analyse her own problems. The combination of her raw honesty and supreme talent resulted in some of the most unique and adored songs of the modern era. Her huge success, however, resulted in relentless and invasive media attention which coupled with Amy’s troubled relationships and precarious lifestyle saw her life tragically begin to unravel.
