Fantastic Four – it’s less than a month away and there’s two new trailers for your delight and delictation. There’s the second official trailer and the first International trailer, yet I prefer the former.
This reboot stars Whiplash‘s Miles Teller as Mr Fantastic, Kate Mara as The Invisible Woman, Michael B Jordan as The Human Torch and Jamie Bell as The Thing… yet, Billy Elliot! Then again, Bell was also up to all kinds of naughtyness in Lars Von Trier’s Nymphomaniac, so all bets are off!
This new version is (it says here) a contemporary re-imagining of Marvel’s original and longest-running superhero team, centring 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.
Fantastic Four also stars Reg E Cathey, Tim Blake Nelson and The Veteran‘s Toby Kebbell, and is directed by Josh Trank, who wrote the daft but engaging Chronicle and is released in the UK on August 6th.
