It’s about time 20th Century Fox released the trailer for the reboot of the Fantastic Four franchise and, at least from the point of view of someone who’s never read the source material, it was worth the wait. This version doesn’t resemble the first Fantastic Four film franchise but instead takes a grittier, more grounded in reality approach to the story. The teaser trailer lays out the basics on how the Fantastic Four came to have special abilities while not giving away too much too early.
Directed by Josh Trank (Chronicle) from a script by Trank, Simon Kinberg, and Jeremy Slater, this attempt to salvage the franchise stars Miles Teller, Michael B. Jordan, Jamie Bell, and Kate Mara.
Fantastic Four opens in theaters on August 7, 2015.
Fantastic Four, a contemporary re-imagining of Marvel’s original and longest-running superhero team, centers on four young outsiders who teleport to an alternate and dangerous universe, which alters their physical form in shocking ways. Their lives irrevocably upended, the team must learn to harness their daunting new abilities and work together to save Earth from a former friend turned enemy.
