The Fantastic Four assemble in these new character banners and poster

04.30.2015

The latest trailer for Josh Trank's FANTASTIC FOUR is still dividing audiences. But, where the reception was previously chilly to the film, newer impressions seem to be warming up a bit. Comic book fans seem to not be taking to the dramatic changes from the source material but, if THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN is any indication, audiences may still turn out to see a new take on the classic First Family of the Marvel universe.

Four new character posters and a banner have been revealed giving us new looks at the four stars in costume. The traditional outfits appear to be under lock and key as a treat for those who see the movie when it debuts this summer, but I am beginning to get used to these containment suits.

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.

I am not expecting high art from FANTASTIC FOUR but I do think that Josh Trank's visual style on display in the trailer offers something to the material. Whether rebooting characters that didn't need changing was the right decision remains to be seen, but I have a feeling if this were an original superhero movie versus one based on a fan favorite team that we would all be singing a much different tune. I am in cautiously optimistic mode right now and look forward to more reveals from this film.

FANTASTIC FOUR opens in theaters on August 7, 2015.

Meh. I'm still not sold. Also, I felt like Rami's trilogy took more liberties than ASM (organic Web shooters anyone?).

I'm also not as completely against the film as I was at first. I'm just still not convinced.

Because we are looking for more faithful adaptations of comic booms we grew up loving. It's really that simple, kind of Like Lenny here.

I'd say these look overly photoshopped but they're on par with most other superhero movie posters from the past couple years. Not bad though. Recipe for success from this point on: talk about the movie less, and show more (without giving away too much). If it's as good as they claim, that should work.

yes, it would be nice to see part of a sequence or two, to get a feel for the characters, the tone, the dialogue..

This looks fine. On par with what we've seen for character posters of any other superhero film. But could they really not come up with anything for Reed Richards to do in the poster besides stand there? Like there must have been something they could do to show off his stretching powers. Just laziness.

Yawn....

Still waiting for something to make me care about this version. So far we know that the actors were told not to read any comics because the director wanted to veer away from the source material, the tone of decades worth of comic stories were discarded so a new "dark, realistic" tone could be adapted, they waited months later than usual to even introduce set pictures & posters (leading many to believe that the studio objected to the product, demanding reshoots and rewrites), they have the same

So no, this doesn't peak my interest.

To be fair I do get tired of comments being posted about other people's opinion (like they don't have a right to them) and it IS a serious over generalisation. Have an opinion about the movie. Sure. Then let others have theirs. This while 'people should think this and shouldn't think that' ballshit is boring.

Something bothers me about Things face and eyes

I don't mind the look of the cast, the movie will suck with good costumes or bad but they really messed up on The Thing. He looks like he has down-syndrome. Also, I never understood how he has human eyes. Animals eyes are VERY sensitive. We get a particle of dust on the eye and we can feel it. Our eyes in their sockets touch fleshy parts that are soft (eyelids and the likes) but this character just has rocks around his eyes. He must be in pain 24/7 from all the stuff going on around the

You see, you whine incessantly about how I'm impolite (ignoring all your mocking posts), so I ask you a legitimate question and you answer with an insult. I'll take that as you admitting you like it because you want to like it, not because there is any part of it that actually looks good.

so the problem is that you are just too sensitive? what's the point in trying to reason with somebody who will just start insulting you?

And hot head needs like vents to let the heat out...you know...because he is like on fire and such. Boy the twilight crowd is going to love this! Yay! The Thing is the only plus here.

Once again...

Reed Richards' apparent superpower is being Miles Teller...with coils on his arms.

Not saying the movie will be good or bad...but I'm pretty confident it won't be the FF.
