The First FANTASTIC FOUR Teaser Trailer Has Been Released


After years of speculation and just a day after we got our first real look at it via a still picture, Twentieth Century Fox has released the first trailer for their upcoming superhero adaptation The Fantastic Four.

At first blush and as expected, this ain’t your dad’s Fantastic Four. It definitely appears as if director Josh Trank and writer Simon Kinberg are pulling much of their inspiration from Marvel Comics “Ultimates” variation on the title from a few years ago.

Well, it doesn’t look 100% terrible, but I am still not quite convinced that it really encapsulates what made the characters popular for over 6 decades. We still have a ways to go until the film’s August 7 release, so I tend to think that Fox’s marketing department still has a job ahead of themselves.
