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:
Watch the teaser:
FANTASTIC FOUR opens in theaters August 7, 2015, in 3D.
