The Teaser Trailer for FANTASTIC FOUR Actually Doesn't Look Horrible

As many of you already know, I was NOT looking forward to this reboot of FANTASTIC FOUR, since the last two were pretty awful (am I the only one who remembers that?). But I have been keenly following Michael B. Jordan's career as of late, and held out hope that he would attach himself to a solid project. Well, 20th Century Fox released the first teaser trailer for the film today and I have to say, I am pleasantly surprised. It looks like this pairing of (Chronicle) and co-writers Simon Kinberg and Jeremy Slater (X-Men: Days of Future Past, The Lazarus Effect) was a good thing.

This first clip promises the youth appeal of X-Men: First Class and the pathos of Captain America with hopefully a fresher narrative that will likely relate to real-life societal issues (I'll assume, since many other modern superhero films have). The full cast includes Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Jamie Bell, and Toby Kebbell. More in the synopsis:

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.

Watch the teaser:

FANTASTIC FOUR opens in theaters August 7, 2015, in 3D.

At first the look and feel of the FF trailer was too generic looking to excite me. Having grown up loving FF comics that magic touch seemed missing. But then that last shot gave me a glimpse of THE THING in CGI glory and then I got excited! Keeping the faith for the film now.

It's a well made trailer that covers up if its going to be crap or not - if that makes sense haha?
Still, looking forward to it!
