MUST SEE Movie Teaser Trailer: Fantastic Four
February 20th, 2015
When a reboot of the Fantastic Four film franchise was announced in August 2009, many fans of the Marvel Comics and films wondered about how different this reboot will be, as well as which actors will be portraying the superhero team. It wasn’t until 2014 that the ball got rolling with the script completed, cast and crew set, and filming shot in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
Directed by Josh Trank(Chronicle), this reboot, according to 20th Century Fox, “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.” Hitting theaters on August 7th, Fantastic Four stars Miles Teller(Whiplash), Kate Mara(Shooter), Michael B. Jordan(Fruitvale Station), Jamie Bell(Billy Elliot), Toby Kebbell(Dead Man’s Shoes), Reg E. Cathey(The Wire), and Tim Blake Nelson(O Brother, Where Art Thou?). The first sign of life that the film is on its way is in the recently released teaser trailer that is beyond amazing.
Although I was a fan of the original Fantastic Four film series that started in 2005, I am excited to see this reboot. I was hesitant about the casting since I believed that Jessica Alba, Chris Evans, Michael Chiklis, Julian McMahon, and Ioan Gruffudd portrayed the superhero team with such ease but after watching the teaser trailer, I believe this new cast will do just as great, if not better. Teller and Jordan already have on-screen chemistry as both starred in That Awkward Moment with Zac Efron and I just know their connection in their roles as Reed Richards and Johnny Storm would be magnificent. Also, Jordan is just an outstanding actor who blew me away in Fruitvale Station.
I’ve followed Mara ever since I saw her in Urban Legends: Bloody Mary and after viewing the trailer, it looks as if she is going to be a stupendous Susan Storm. Bell and the rest of the cast look as if they will wonderfully portray their roles and, overall, Fantastic Four looks like it’s going to be an amazing film filled with emotion, action, and a lot of ‘fantastic’ powers. Watch the trailer to Fantastic Four below and be sure to see the film when it’s released to theaters on August 7th.
