The latest trailer for Fox’s Fantastic Four reboot played for the crowd at San Diego Comic-Con over the weekend. One of the few such previews that didn’t come with a massive leak, the trailer has now been released online for all to see.
Featuring a whole bunch of new footage, the trailer gives a more detailed look at the genius of young Reed Richards (Owen Judge, Miles Teller once he’s all grown up and stretchy), as well as the green, glowly skin of Doctor Doom (Toby Kebbell). There are also plenty of shots of the team using their powers, including some fresh glimpses at how the pants-less Thing (Jaime Bell) look in motion and in clobbering time mode. (Still no soundbites from the rocky one, though.) The whole thing seems to play up a military connection between the team and their journey, so check it out below:
Directed by Josh Trank from a Simon Kinberg-penned script, the film also stars Michael B. Jordan (Friday Night Lights) as Johnny Storm, aka The Human Torch; House of Cards star Kate Mara as his step-sister, Sue Storm, aka The Invisible Woman; Reg E. Cathey as their father, Dr. Franklin Storm; and Tim Blake Nelson as army liaison Harvey Elder, a character known in the comic books as Mole Man.
Fantastic Four hits theaters on August 7th, 2015. Here’s the official synopsis:
“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.”
