20th Century Fox has released the first extended trailer for the upcoming superhero film, the Fantastic Four.
The movie is directed by Josh Trank and stars Miles Teller as Reed Richards, Kate Mara as Sue Storm, Michael B. Jordan as Johnny Storm and Jamie Bell as Ben Grimm.
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.
The new trailer contains heaps of new content, the Thing in action, a glimpse at the villain ‘Doom’ and gives us more of a look at the Four’s interpersonal relationships.
The comic has a rich history and there have already been two movies based on the franchise, I see this movie as an effort to turn the Four into something ‘trendy’ for the youth of today, almost a re-branding which is a risky move. We can see from the trailer that it is full of amazing effects, lots of action, plenty of entertainment and I’m looking forward to seeing it but I can’t see it breaking box office records or becoming a ‘cult classic’.
