The new Fantastic Four trailer gives us more powers, plot, and Doom

04.19.2015

Earlier today the new trailer for FANTASTIC FOUR leaked before its planned debut which in turn forced Fox to release the official version a little sooner than they had planned; seems like that sort of thing has been happening more often lately. I know FANTASTIC FOUR has been a divisive topic around these parts but I'm not quite as down on the project as I initially was, and this new trailer has a lot to do with that. Check it out below and let us know what you think!

While this take on Marvel's first family will no doubt be darker and grittier than we're used to, I'm glad that some humour has been showcased in this time around to give us a better idea of how the super foursome bond together. While we do catch our first glimpse at Toby Kebbell's Dr. Doom, I haven't quite seen enough of him to say whether or not I'm pleased with his new look.

Update: A new poster popped up as well; everyone looks so serious...or bored.

FANTASTIC FOUR opens on August 7, 2015.

So, I wasn't sold on this at first. I'm still not 100% on board with this interpretation. But this trailer felt like a step in the right direction. I'll give it a chance.

I don't like the poster too much, bad photoshop and all, but that is an issue with too many posters these days.

I have been pretty vocal about the, let's say, oddness surrounding this movie, that it took so long to get any material from it, etc. And I wasn't impressed with the teaser- didn't love or hate it, twas very meh. This new trailer though, this is one of the best new trailers to be released recently. Way better than either Star Wars teaser trailers, more engaging than "Batman V.

Doesn't look bad....Not being a fan of Fantastic Four, and therefore, not being biased, The trailer showed me enough to at least be interested in checking the film out...Which is what a trailer is supposed to do, I guess...

I've been pretty neutral to these trailers so far. This is the first one that shows me something that looks remotely Fantastic Four-ish. And hey, I am a Reg E. Cathey fan, so seeing him so prominently featured is pretty neat. Still would like to know the story behind Kate Mara getting cast as Sue Storm.

Credit where it's due

This trailer was much better than the others, way less broody. It helped me feel curious, but I'm still just not much of a Fantastic Four fan.

Nope

I have absolutely zero desire to see this movie, nothing in this trailer made me excited. It looks like Fox/Marvel is aiming for that politically correct Twilight audience....and that's not me.

The older ones weren't that bad. The tone was right

I have little to no interest in this, because actually FF4 needs to be a little "cheeky", and being colorful kind of fits with the feel of FF4. I'm not saying this is a disaster, but I'm sick of the whole "we have to be dark for the sake of being dark" thing going on with comic-themed movies a lot these days. FF4 is guilty as charged.

Not All Dark

This trailer actually has me excited to see this film. I never wrote this film off, even when so many anticipated the worst with earlier reports about the characters, plot and casting. There is just too much talent involved for me to not give this a chance. Josh Trank showed he has potential with Chronicle and Simon Kinberg surprised me with his script for X-Men Days of Future Past. Matthew Vaughn's involvement helps as well. Now, I'm starting to see evidence in this trailer that this could

Now, I'm starting to see evidence in this trailer that this could be as good as I hoped it would be.

The complaints on tone to me seem unfounded, because it looks like the approach is similar to the X-Men films, and there is a significant amount of humor present in this trailer. The character interaction seems really solid, and the moments shown here suggest some levity present in their dialogue to offset the anticipated "dark" tone. The ages don't bother me, because it looks like they are taking the Ultimate route, which had Reed Richards as a child prodigy. I have no complaints about following the Ultimate origin, either, because the original origin is outdated. It was conceived in a time when we were venturing into space with moon missions, and that is mostly irrelevant now. I also think having a black actor playing Johnny Storm works better with a black father (especially since they seemed to cast a great actor in that role.) I never doubted that Michael B. Jordan could pull off this role, either. All in all, this trailer definitely has me more optimistic.

You keep saying that, but what humor did you see, and how does it compare with ANY of the X-Men movies?

Seriously dude, just saying you thought it was funny doesn't mean it really is.

I think the biggest problem for me is the age of Reed. Great actor in teller, it's just that this looks like the ultimate version and I think that this will be one of those movies that starts off great and then ventures into the Hollywood formula ending. Time will tell, but this trailer wasnt horrible.

I know it's not exactly the comic brought to life. But it is funny watching the grudging enthusiasm here, admitting it looks pretty good but still finding something to bitch about.

So, Doom is not just an angry blogger, he actually goes to another dimension with them? Well that is a bit of relief, however it looks as if he is doing the Anakin Skywalker route and falling into some cosmic lava and that is why he wears the mask...because that is original! I do like the look of the Thing, so I will at least rent it.

If you're going to slag off Marvel at least get your spelling right so you don't look like an arse. Antman won't bomb for the simple reason it's Marvel. It has a global fan base and in putting AOU first this summer it was a brilliant move to get all the fans back interested again. Trust me Antman will be a hit

The cgi looks good, but nothing about it really made me slightly interested in seeing it. I still think all of the characters are terribly miscast and I'm getting a big Amazing Spider Man type vibe from this film as well (which is a bad thing in my mind considering the new rebooted films were crap).

And I don't like the overly dark, brooding atmosphere and tone of the film; especially with these characters and their 'Fantastic' powers. This film and characters should be more light hearted

And I don't like the overly dark, brooding atmosphere and tone of the film; especially with these characters and their 'Fantastic' powers. This film and characters should be more light hearted and cheerful. As much hate the original two films get, at least both films got the tone right and the characters personalities right as well. With this new entry, I'm not seeing that......at all, which is a shame.

I understand you already set your mind to a strong opinion on this movie and that you can't take back the virulent hate you demonstrated in the past, but I don't think the Fantastic Four movies benefit from a lighter tone. When it was originally announced that they would take a darker more gritty route with this franchise, you and others retaliated without knowing what to expect. These trailers suggest more of an X-Men look and feel, which is an acceptable approach and consistent with the Fox

I don't remember complaints about the look of X-Men Days Of Future Past from last year. What is more telling in this trailer is that there does seem to be humor in the character interactions, which looks to add some levity to the proceedings. I don't think it will be all brooding, and there does seem to be some fun to be had. You might have to reverse your thinking.

It also had end-to-end action, where this trailer shows boardroom meetings, studying in the library, conversations about where the group is, a medium-sized guy trying to convince us he's a badass by hitting a CGI baseball really far, scientists building stuff, ad crawling around in a barren wasteland. No humor, and very little action.

That plus some terribly stilted lines that sounded like out-takes, not trailer-worthy dialogue.

They don't even give us a new villain to combat (something that seems like a no-brainer considering the alternate universe). Instead Doom evidently gets super-powers again, and is immediately rushed into being the bad guy.

Seriously, I'll pass.

Love it

I've been optimistic about this project since Trank was announced as being the director and creative mind behind the franchise. Unlike others, I appreciate a departure from the source material to bring something new and exciting to these characters. Everyone looks great in costume--especially the Human Torch. But I'm more pleasantly surprised by the look of The Thing!!

Polarizing

This film is going to be one that you are going to either appreciate or downright despise. There are parts of that trailer that I love and others I don't like at all. We shall see but I remain cautiously optimistic.

I've been playing the optimist about this movie since it was announced. And it looks like my patients is finally paying off. This trailer looks good. I dont care if it deviates from the comic book too much, i was never much a fan of it. A movie shouldnt have to follow guide lines to be considered good.

This is really gonna devide people, i think it will technically be a success at the box office, but still devide fans to whether it was good or not. It's not my highest anticipated movie of

Still a NO for me

There comes a point, when one can deviate so far from the original source material, it's no longer resemble it in anyway.
This movie is a big NO for me. Furthermore, it looks just plan Ugly.
Still reshooting as of last week. The inside buzz is this film is a mess. The suits at FOX know this too, and been trying to save it with these second round of 'action' enhancements reshoots.

I get that the comic was humorous, but I'd take this serious tone comic movie over some action comedy like the originals.

Why has my comment posted 4 times?

And a better question is, Why can't I delete any of them?

You're on the mobile site, correct? Can't edit. And if it is refreshed you get a double post.

Changed my mind.

It's what adults do when they're wrong. This may not end up being a good movie, but this official "looks" good to me. I will no longer be crapping on this movie until I see it.

Well then

So now THAT trailer makes this not seem so bad. Too bad they didn't start with this one.

Looks like it could be fun! Still not much story outside of what we already knew though.

What makes me laugh is the amount of people complaining that the tone is all wrong (which it is) but are championing Man of Steel and the Bats/Supes trailer although they're committing exactly the same sin.
Stop turning positive, bright, charming, fun heroes into brooding, dark and gritty things hollywood! Do that with, I dunno, let's say the actual dark comic book characters. Making the Fantastic Four, Superman and Spider-Man into angst ridden and brooding characters is the same as taking

Guy - I have read your posts on these superhero movies and you are correct in pretty much all your points. As a side note I still liked man of steel (I am too much of a superman geek). That aside I agree with you.

I think what you are not getting is that people don't care. I have stopped having these conversations with people because it ends up pissing me off. You can make 1000 points and they will just say you suck. That's the way it is.

Men want to appear to be cool and having superman

Men want to appear to be cool and having superman being a bright symbol for hope that inspires us to be better and inspire children to dream is not cool. It's gay or silly. Superman the way he really is is now considered dumb. Eventually things will swing back.

If you love dark and gritty watch daredevil (which is a fucking amazing show I must say) or batman or ghost rider etc. if you want dark gritty and realistic do punisher. I don't know why the fantastic four who are heroes/explorers have to be dark.

Ps have a nice day.

j-man, I bloody loved Daredevil. Dark, grim violent, but somehow almost REAL with incredibly written characters and all of the lore you'd hope. A perfect representation of those characters and that world, it's cool to see Marvel doing the dark side of its universe, doing it when its appropriate and doing it right. I enjoy the first two Dark Knight movies, the third lost the plot for me one time too many sadly. But I mean, I enjoy The Crow because the tone is appropriate for its subject, same

But I mean, I enjoy The Crow because the tone is appropriate for its subject, same for Dredd (newest one) or Blade.

Don't get me wrong, I thought the last Fantastic Four movies were daft, they were written to be too camp, with no real grounding in anything. But they don't need to be grounded in "gritty realism", they just need well written characters and plot with real stakes at play, regardless of the tone.

I do agree with you though, people seem to believe that "dark and gritty" equals instantly more 'grown-up', whereas I'd argue that's the exact opposite. If you're not mature enough to understand when something is supposed to be colorful and cheerful, and not comfortable in yourself to let yourself enjoy a strong story regardless of how it's presented, then you're doing comics wrong and not allowing yourself access to some great stories in animation, comics, film, etc.

I laid something dark and gritty in my toilet this morning...

...and it looked a little like this trailer.

Yea, I'm still not feeling it. The tone is what turns me off, and the cast as well. Hope this lives up to everyone's standards that's looking forward to this.

That wasn't too bad. I'm definitely waiting on reviews for this one though. You can make any film look decent with the trailer. I'm holding out for feedback on the finished product. But yeah, that trailer was interesting - didn't make it seem like a complete trainwreck or anything.

This is honestly the 1st trailer that actually got me on board with this film. The character interactions among the team are GREAT, the cast seems like they have plenty of chemistry, and the exploration/sci-fi angle of this is pretty refreshing to see in a comic book movie. I will say that the designs for Doom and the Thing are awful, but that's never been a dealbreaker for me. I'll see this in theaters, but I'm curious to see if the script is as good as everything we see in this trailer.

This looks more interesting than good. Seems more like chronicle 2. I like these actors in other roles, but they seem miscast here.

Mmmm, I kinda warm up for it. But no "Itīs clobbering time" from the Thing? What a shame.

It was fine. Considering how poorly the light hearted Fantastic Four movies were received, maybe dark is what's needed? They tried a "realistic" approach in terms of avoiding what we know about radiation and space exposures in lieu of MacGuffin science, which does, ironically, make this more realistic by avoiding realism entirely.

"We should use these powers to help people....."

Wow was there some flat acting in that. Like seriously....I like 3 of the 4 actors, and that came off really lame.

That plus the origin story looks like it's going to be a huge portion of the movie (showing them studying in the library????). If you weren't already on board with this, I doubt it's going to change anyone's mind.

That line stuck out to me as well. We need to emphasize that they have a choice to help, hinder, or do nothing, really? We already know they are the Fantastic Four, they are superheros, so naturally from the source material alone we expect them to help people, but hey what a way to add great dialogue and drama!

Sigh

These FF trailers are just frustrating. Over-serious one liners, slow motion head turns, jokes that land with a thud, and them dropping Hulk, erm ...I mean THING out of the plane sure looks familiar.

Finally

This is what we needed. Got more funny moments, got more of the interaction between characters. Definitely got more awesome displays of the abilities. I mean damn that shot of Reed's arm flexing through the armlocks.

Only thing I'm not crazy about is Doom right now. Looks too much like the first movies version, even if it's not a mask this time. It just looks too human, and the whole hood and cape thing. I want that fucked up looking Doom, where he's as messed up as the Thing in the

Gotta admit I'm liking what I've seen. I hate that it just HAS to be a team of youngsters, but what can I do?

I'm thinking it's Doom that makes or breaks this film. If he's really more than some disgruntled geek blogger, then they've failed.
