Sue & Johnny Storm take flight in this international Fantastic Four trailer

04.03.2015

Fantastic Four Josh Trank Michael B. Jordan Kate Mara Miles Teller Jamie Bell

FOX has released an international FANTASTIC FOUR trailer, and while there isn't a ton of new stuff, it does feature footage of Michael B. Jordan's Johnny Storm/Human Torch and Kate Mara's Sue Storm/Invisible Woman using their powers. We're just a little over four months away from the release of the Josh Trank-directed reboot, so hopefully we'll be getting a better look at the duo in action (as well as the rest of the FF members) in an upcoming trailer.

Take a look:

I've actually warmed up to FANTASTIC FOUR a bit, however Toby Kebbell's Doom being an angry blogger still rubs me the wrong way. But I loved Josh Trank's CHRONICLE, and although some fans aren't happy with the casting for the film, I'm very excited to see the actors' takes on the comic book characters.

FANTASTIC FOUR is set to open on August 7, 2015.

I would have rather favored a light 80´s Amblin kind of style. But still looks intriguing and solid

People here are crazy. This movie looks amazing. Folks are merely still angry and don't wan to like it. Trank has done a great job with a reimage.

Why are they keeping Mr Fantastic's ability to stretch out of the trailers like it's going to be some sort of reveal? Everyone knows he stretches.

It likely has to do with the fact that those scenes require certain special effects that just haven't been completed satisfactorily yet.

I remember the special effects for Green Lantern's suit were under development right up until just before the release of the film. The film makers kept blaming criticisms of the suit on an unfinished effect, when the reality was that the foundational design of radioactive bacon just wasn't right.

It would be better to focus on the villain. The worst part of this reveal so far has been them redoing the stupid origin again, then showing NOTHING about what will make the film interesting. I don't care about Ben Grimm's baseball career or Johnny Storm fixing a car. If they're just setting up Doom to be the main villain (for the 3rd time in 3 movies), then it's an automatic pass for me. The only thing that can save this film is if the menace is something inhuman out of the alternate

Dark, Gritty, and Emo

Not sure if this is the tone I'd want in a Fantastic Four movie. When I go to see a super hero movie, I prefer walking out of the theater inspired rather than getting all weepy.

Looks like another Twilight in Tights.

In your humble opinion maybe. The climax might have been a bit weak, but the rest of it is great. In my and most of my friends humble opinions.

Looks great to me

I dont know why people are being so negative towards this movie. Could it be the black Jonny Storm? Or people just with dumbed down taste commenting the loudest?

Are you saying that making Jonny Storm black prevents the possibility of this being a crappy movie?

Are you suggesting that any deviation of taste from your own is dumbed down?

For me, I feel it's just the opposite. Everything about this movie screams "dumbed down to the lowest common denominator" for me. The tone, characterization, costuming.... It reads like a thousand other movies I've already seen these past two years- one of them already from this director! I'm just not sure it's going to hold up. I don't care that Johnny is black- I think it's an unnecessary change, sure. And I kinda wish Sue was gonna be played by an African American actress if her brother is

But no, my biggest concerns about the film are way beyond race and hovering more in the "is this going to be a boring generic let down?" territory...

acalebw brings up an excellent point.

What if the reason people are being so negative towards this movie is because they want Sue Storm to be black too?

Lol, you know, maybe that is some peoples biggest issue. For me, those are the scoff worthy issues. Very minor annoyances. Because in the long run what I'm worried about is the tone and the story. I'm more worried about this being a mediocre scifi FF-lite hack fest than I am about realistically "matching" singling skin tones.

Nick Fury is black. James Rhodes is black. The Falcon is black. Black Panther is black. Cyborg is black. Storm is black. John Stewart is black. We have no problem with black actors and actresses playing black characters. What we do want is for Johnny and Sue to be brother and sister. Please stop playing the race card and calling people racist.

So based on no real footage you dorks already hate it? So it's just based on stupidity?

Makes sense

Defensive and playing the race card. So now if people don't give FF a chance they are all racists. How about the fact that none of the promotion has even shown the villain, these is no idea or hint as to what the threat the FF face. They just do some serious looking trailer, and the cast looks unhappy. The director expressed his own disgust for the source material and its core audience. And the production has committed to throwing away the canon of the source material. There are plenty of

That being said, making Johnny Storm a black guy isn't exactly a smart move. But at least there's a built in excuse when it bombs. The director can say "everybody is racist".

still can't get excited for this

My issue with this film, from the beginning, has never been with the casting. My issue is with from everything Trank has said, his clear lack of enthusiasm or interest in the source material. It was the same problem I had with Iron Man 3 - in that instance, Shane Black didn't want to make an Iron Man movie, he wanted to make a Shane Black movie that had Iron Man in it. Which is why it sucked, because he ignored already established aspects of the franchise in favor of introducing his own tropes

That seems to be exactly what Trank is doing here - he's making a Josh Trank movie that just happens to be about The Fantastic Four. Unfortunately, his particular style doesn't suit the source material. Everything about this looks so generic.

I'm not a comic fan, but I enjoy my share of super-hero movies. I do think this will be an improvement over the last series (too bad they couldn't bring Michael Chiklis or Captain America back). It may be even less faithful to the comic source than the last series, but at their best they were just okay movies. Between the negative backlash (which was overblown, but understandable), and a lack of marketing, I have no desire to see this movie. I like Miles Teller, Michael B.Jordan, and Jamie Bell

Between the negative backlash (which was overblown, but understandable), and a lack of marketing, I have no desire to see this movie. I like Miles Teller, Michael B.Jordan, and Jamie Bell (also Reg E. Cathey!), but there is nothing I've seen here that makes this stand out to me as anything other than an also-ran super-hero franchise, kind of like the Amazing Spider-Man movies (at least they had Spider-Man front and center in the marketing). The teasers are obnoxiously serious (even the Nolan Batman movies didn't shy away from a little comic book camp by comparison), and they tell me nothing about the movie. They do a piss-poor job of telling me the Fantastic Four are these same kids we meet at the beginning of the trailer. I don't think the movie looks bad. I think it looks mediocre.

I think...

this movie will be a mass improvement from their last 2 attempts. Everyone had doubts with X-Men: First Class but that movie did better than The Last Stand and brought us Days of Future Past and the coming Apocalypse. I think Fox is stepping up their game.

Right??? I'm definitely looking forward to this more than "Ant-Man" despite the very cool Paul Rudd/Michael Douglas combo. These Fantastic 4 trailers have done a great job of distinguishing themselves from the silliness of the previous 2 and all they'll need is that one money shot in the final trailer to truly sell this as the late summer Must See.

What little I know of the Fantastic Four, I think they could benefit best from a lighter comic take, as long as the filmmaker was actually talented. How is Mr. Fantastic not automatically a tongue-in-cheek character? Or the Human Torch?

Hoyle Haw, That's crossed my mind as well. At the same time names like Superman, Wonder Woman, and Batman are sort of silly. Hopefully there's room in the world for both the tongue in cheek and the very dark and serious. The movie could bomb, but I think if it does it will be because it's just a bad movie in general, not for straying from it's roots too much. I have the luxury of not being familiar with the source material and only remember the two shitty movies we've already had.

That was a waste of time.....

That had about 3/4 of a second of new footage. This looks like they're marketing it more as a Horror B-Movie. So weird....
