This month, we have seen two new TV spots released for the new Fantastic Four movie. Both offer up what is to be a promising reboot packed with a lot of action!
The movie is based off of Marvel’s very first super hero team whom we are all familiar with at this point. But, in a departure from the team’s original origin, the four main characters are teleported to a different dimension where they develop their powers.
One other notable difference is the characters are at least five years younger than their original counterparts, which could either be a refreshing take on the series or possibly hinder it with the overly modernized story line.
Regardless, it sure seems like it’s going to be a fantastic movie to see this summer holiday season!
We’ve got the two new TV spots for you below. Fantastic Four hits theaters August 7, 2015.
Hot on the heels of the other amazingtrailers we’ve been treated to this week, 20th Century Fox has released a new full-length trailer for Fantastic Four. There’s so much goodness packed into just under three minutes, so what are you waiting for? Check it out!
In Fox’s Fantastic Four, Reid Richards (Miles Teller), Sue Storm (Kate Mara), Johnny Storm (Michael B. Jordan), and Ben Grimm (Jamie Bell) discover the key to interdimensional travel and visit another dimension, imbuing them with their abilities and the will to become Mr. Fantastic, The Invisible Woman, The Human Torch, and The Thing.
And the trailer gives us a glimpse at the Four’s most enduring adversary, Dr. Doom (Toby Kebbel). Correct me if I’m wrong, but did I see Victor travel through dimensions with the Four? Guess we know how he got his powers (and why he’s so angry at them).
Fantastic Four hits theaters August 7, 2015 and I will so be there!
It’s definitely clobberin’ time! Take a look at Benjamin Grimm, aka The Thing, in the Fantastic Four reboot!
Based on this photo it’s impossible to tell that this literal mountain of a man is actually Jamie Bell.
The Thing was created this time around with CGI rather than visual effects and makeup, allowing for a more realistic rocky appearance than his previous orange incarnation (portrayed by Michael Chiklis).
But, to Chiklis’s credit, his portrayal did more closely resemble The Thing’s appearance in the original comics. The structure and color of his costume was spot on, although his head did seem to retain too much of Ben Grimm’s past human appearance compared to the comics.
The new image, along with two other exclusive screen grabs from the upcoming reboot (see below), were revealed in Empiremagazine.
This isn’t the first glimpse of the rebooted Grimm to hit the internet, though. We have known for a few weeks just what Jamie Bell’s take on The Thing would look like via a low-quality Instagram photo.
