Fantastic Four — Teaser Trailer


added: Tue, Jan 27th '15

The teaser trailer for "Fantastic Four" is out, and it provides the very first peek at "Chronicle" director Josh Trank's hotly-anticipated comic book reboot, in which Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell star as the titular superhero team. For the uninitiated, the four members consist of Reed Richards aka "Mr. Fantastic" (Teller), Sue Storm aka "The Invisible Woman" (Mara), Johnny Storm aka "The Human Torch" (Jordan) and Ben Grimm aka "The Thing" (Bell).

The preview doesn't give away too much, only revealing a hint of a familiar origin story: four scientists -- four young scientists who experience a strange occurrence in space, only to discover they have been given superpowers. "With every new discovery, there is risk, there is sacrifice and they are consequences," the narration ominously informs us in the trailer.

British actor Toby Kebbell, who played Koba in last year's "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes," has been cast to play the iconic super-villain, Dr. Doom. Unfortunately, he's not shown in the teaser as questions on how the film will incorporate Doom are left largely unanswered.

"Fantastic Four" is slated to open this summer, beginning on August 7th.

(Update: Director Josh Trank and producer-screenwriter Simon Kinberg offer their own frame-by-frame breakdown of the new "Fantastic Four" trailer, watch the video here.)

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.
