Still trying to catch your breath from the recent release of the “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” as well as the “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” trailers? Welp, we hate to break it to you but this is going to send you into an overdrive all over again
In January this year, 20th Century Fox released a teaser trailer for the upcoming “Fantastic Four” film. Directed by Josh Trank (of “Chronicles” fame), it is a reboot of the “Fantastic Four” film franchise and the 3rd “Fantastic Four” movie to be distributed by 20th Century Fox.
Set to take place in the same universe as the “X-Men” film series, “Fantastic Four” offers a contemporary re-imagining of Marvel’s original and longest-running superhero team. The plot centres on 4 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.
And now, the most revealing trailer yet for the reboot is here, and we finally get to see Reed, Sue, Ben, and Johnny take on their “fantastic” forms.
As seen in the YouTube screenshot above, we even get a peek at legendary nemesis Doctor Doom and some clues as to how this darker take on the Fantastic Four will play out. You are probably not ready for this.
Watch the full trailer here:
“The Fantastic Four” is slated to be released in 3D on 7th August 2015.
