The Fantastic 4 Marvel Won’t let You to See

FILM THREAT 12 COVERUPDATE: /Film just announced a new “Family friendly” version is in the works!

The Fantastic 4 (1994) was hidden. Listen to the inside scoop on the infamous Roger Corman “Fantastic 4.” It was a movie no one was supposed to see. The prints were burned. Who leaked it? Why would a company want to make a movie just to shelve it?

Chris Gore was the editor of “Film Threat” magazine. He did a cover story about the production – not knowing the film was doomed. DOOMED! Chris give his insight on this blockbuster bootleg. Everything you ever wanted (or not wanted) to know about the early ’90s feature film. Gore is a movie/comic book nut. So he goes off on fun tangents about all things nerdy. Luckily for us, being nerdy is in now.

I know Chris Gore was on before talking about The Fantastic 4 movie, but I wanted him to get into more details. So to my brother who called me out on having Chris Gore talk about the movie twice, lean back and learn more.

Monty Python Takes Over Morning Show (1975)

Screen Shot 2014-08-01 at 1.43.34 PMEric Idle, Graham Chapman, Michael Palin and Terry Jones and Terry Gilliam take over a 70’s American morning show to promote their movie, “The Holly Grail.” (Starts about 1 minute in) They are the “co-hosts” for the hour.  They try to read prompter and by the end of they are tearing the studio up. Screen Shot 2014-08-01 at 1.46.55 PM

The host seems to be having fun. The late Peter Jennings is having none of it. He seems pretty annoyed. Maybe because Chapman sneaks a middle finger on air.

There’s also an extra long clip from the movie.

The end credits play straight while the Python guys are tearing apart the set and attacking the host.
